Miraj ASKED THE GUIDE

Should I buy a Toyota RAV4 or a Honda CR-V?

I’m considering a 2020 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser 2WD auto or a 2020 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD. Most reviews say they are very close, but I like how CRV appears and the RAV4 seems to have more plastics. How is the ride quality on both? Anything to consider one over the other? Your thoughts?

You really need to go out and test drive both vehicles, because they both have their plusses and minuses and those will be graded according to your personal preferences. Overall, the RAV4 is a bigger vehicle (almost as big as the original Kluger, in fact) so that might come into the reckoning based purely on the size of your parking space at home.

The RAV4 rides a bit more softly but your choice of the range-topping VTi-LX in the Honda is a good one because that’s the only model in the line-up that includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping and adaptive cruise-control. That said, the RAV4 has all those features, too, but extends them to the bulk of the models offered, not just the top-spec version.

On warranty and fuel economy, both compare pretty closely, so it will come down to the little things that you personally find important; things like the Honda’s doors that open almost to 90-degrees and the Toyota’s vast rear seat legroom and cavernous luggage space. Over to you.
