  • Before you even look closely at the features and qualities of these small SUVs, pricing is an important matter to attend to. With that in mind, you'll certainly appreciate how the 2020 Honda CR-V is more affordable than the RAV4, which will help you fit more features and other upgrades into your budget. Furthermore, the lease deals and other specials we offer here at Brown's Toyota of Glen Burnie will help you buy the right 2020 Honda CR-V in a way that works for your budget right now and moving forward.

  • Even though you're looking at a small SUV, you still want ample space inside for cargo. With that in mind, the 2020 Honda CR-V has more cargo room than the RAV4, both with the rear seats in place, and when you fold down the second row to create more room inside. The 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats is ample, while the 2020 Honda CR-V allows for up to 75.8 cubic feet with those seats easily adjusted. Having that much space for all kinds of cargo is the way to go in a small SUV that you'll use for all different kinds of driving.

  • The 2020 Honda CR-V is far more generously equipped with standard features than what you'll find with the base level of the Toyota RAV4. Standard safety features like road departure mitigation and other driver aids offer better protection for avoiding hazards than what the RAV4 offers in its base level, while the 2020 Honda CR-V also includes standard heated front seats and an automatic walkaway locking function, which either aren't available or offered as base features with the Toyota model.

  • When looking at the top trim levels of both these SUVs, you'll be impressed with how better equipped the 2020 Honda CR-V. Satellite radio, navigation and a premium nine-speaker sound system are all easily - and more affordably - added to the 2020 Honda CR-V, while the newest editions of the RAV4 are relatively stripped down when it comes to the upgrades you might want to add to a small SUV of this style. Let us know what other features are important for you to have, and we'll be willing to bet the new 2020 Honda CR-V offers much more than one of its closest competitors.
