Detroit area drivers, we know that there are lots of things that are pushing some of you to look at the 2014 Toyota RAV4, with safety features being a big one, but we encourage you to check out the 2014 Honda CR-V instead.
The original crossover SUV, the CR-V is available now at Detroit Area Honda Dealers, and we can’t wait to show you just all it has to offer drivers, safety and more.
The Safety Ratings Don’t Lie
While there are not many vehicles on the road today that are truly unsafe, agencies like the IIHS and NHTSA rank the safety of new cars, trucks, SUVs, and crossovers, and the RAV4 was found lacking, especially compared to the CR-V.
Let’s look at the breakdown of safety ratings from the NHTSA on the CR-V and RAV4:
- Front Passenger Crash Test: Honda earned 5 stars, Toyota earned 3 stars.
- Side Pole Crash Safety: Honda earned 5 stars, Toyota earned 4 stars.
- Overall Frontal Crash Safety: Honda earned 5 stars, Toyota earned 4 stars.
- Overall Safety Rating: Honda earned 5 stars, Toyota earned 4 stars.
As if the safety rankings weren’t enough, Honda has equipped the vehicle with a suite of standard amenities that put others—like the RAV4—to shame. It’s not to say that you can’t get Bluetooth phone and audio or a touchscreen infotainment system or a rearview camera on the RAV4, but you will need to upgrade the Toyota to get all that is available on Honda’s entry-level crossover.
