Safety Features: RAV4 vs. CR-V

  • Manufacturers are now including advanced driver assistance features in their vehicles, but Toyota has always been one step ahead. They continue this trend for 2019 by offering Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) on all RAV4 configurations.
  • You need to upgrade from the base trim to the EX to access Honda Sensing in the CR-V.
  • Even though almost every CR-V includes Honda Sensing, the latter package doesn’t offer as many features. Drivers looking for Lane Tracing Assistance, Automatic High Beams, or Road Sign Assistance would be better off choosing the Toyota.
  • The RAV4 also offers more accessible safety upgrades than its rival. If you want a Blind Spot Monitor or a Rear Cross Path Monitor in the CR-V, an upgrade to a higher trim is required. By contrast, both features are optional in the baseline RAV4.
