If you’re looking to make your trips around Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Orange County, CA, more efficient—yet still packed with adventure—you may want to consider models like the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid and Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. Both models offer a lot of features to their respective drivers, but since it’s up to you, which vehicle do you ultimately choose?
Our team at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Huntington Beach is here to show you what these hybrid crossovers offer and how they differ, so you can determine the one that’s best-suited for you and your adventures on the road!
While both vehicles boast an eco-friendly performance, there’s a bit of a difference with what they offer and what they can do. The CR-V features a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that works with an AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motor. This motor can generate up to 181 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque.
Although similar, the RAV4 comes equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with a multi-electric motor assist system that only generates up to 118 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque. Each hybrid comes with respective continuously variable transmissions that are mated to their engines.
Each hybrid crossover includes a dashboard-mounted display screen that is used to select media options for the road. Using these screens, you can utilize a USB or auxiliary-connected media player, your Bluetooth®-paired smartphone, or even your favorite AM/FM radio stations.
These vehicles also offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, which will sync your phone to the available touchscreen to keep you connected at all times. The CR-V Hybrid also offers HondaLink®. This feature will connect your vehicle to your phone so you can remotely unlock, start, or locate your hybrid crossover.
The CR-V Hybrid and RAV4 Hybrid each come equipped with some driver-assisting technology features. These features use exterior sensors to measure factors like speed and distance, which can provide warnings and braking assistance to help you reduce the severity of—or avoid—a collision.
While each vehicle has collision-mitigation systems, lane-keeping systems, and adaptive cruise control systems, the CR-V Hybrid also includes the Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS). This system will also warn pedestrians in the vehicle’s path.
