CR-V Hybrid vs. RAV4 Hybrid: Price

The Honda CR-V hybrid got a makeover for the 2023 model year. It looks more modern and stylish, and more features than ever before come standard. The MSRP is $32,450*, which makes this SUV a smart option. The Toyota RAV4 hybrid got even more efficient in 2023, and Toyota made all-wheel drive (AWD) standard for the base model, as well.

The MSRP is $30,225 but the RAV4 Hybrid is nearly similar to the previous model year. Additionally, opt for the new Honda CR-V and you’ll get to take advantage of the Honda Service Pass which includes complimentary maintenance for 2 years/24,000 miles.

Size & Cargo

When comparing the Honda hybrid vs. Toyota hybrid SUV, space is a major concern. The Honda has far more interior space, which means more legroom and more cargo space. In fact, there’s 39.3 cubic feet with all seats in position and 76.5 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. The Toyota only offers 37.6 cubic feet with all seats in position and 69.8 cubic feet with the seats folded down. When going on vacation, those extra feet of space matter.

Engine & Fuel Economy

The 2023 Honda CR-V hybrid comes with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that delivers 204 horsepower. It gets 43 MPG in the city and 36 on the highway** in the Honda CR-V Sport Hybrid E-CVT FWD configuration. The Toyota RAV4 hybrid features a slightly larger 2.5L four-cylinder engine that delivers 219 horsepower, and it gets 41 MPG in the city and 38 MPG on the highway. Both SUVs feature a CVT transmission, as well.

Trim Levels & Customizations

The CR-V Hybrid keeps things simple with two trim level options that are focused on efficiency and comfort. On the other hand, the RAV4 does provide more trim levels but things can get pricey as you opt for higher trim configurations. Each one comes with slightly different features and customizations, and there are plenty of options available for each trim level.
