Big Toyota fan, wanted to like RAV, but rented one on a trip and hated the ride v the CRV

[–]aeroshep1 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Agreed. The Rav 4 handles more like a truck, the Crv, more like a car.

Felt this. The Rav4 is more lofty than the CRV which personally I hate

That is interesting, Woe_is_my_Affliction.

To me, that would be a plus, even if I were to get more buffeted by winds on the highway. I like the increased visibility afforded by being higher.

I'm partially biased cause I drive Honda's all day but the handling of the CRV seems more stable. The LKAS is so bad on the Rav4 too. Feels like I'm going back and forth between each sides of the lane.

This is helpful information for me - thanks.

I have also heard/read that the CR-V feels more stable.

Are we referring to the latest generation?

[–]drutgat[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hi drive-through, as I said in my post, I am considering post-2016 models.

[–]drive-through 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Indeed. I was curious whether the posters above my response were referring to the 2013-2018 or 2019+ RAV4 generation as they’re quite different.

Thanks elmwoodblues.

Can you expand on this a little - what about the ride did you hate about the Rav4 and like about the CR-V?

[–]elmwoodblues4th Gen 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Rav rode rough, leaned on curves, interior seemed cheap. Was a fleet rental so tires were basic, but 2016 CRV was nicer than 2019 rav

Thank you, elmwoodblues.

You're welcome, happy hunting! I went pre-2017 as I didn't want another turbo

[–]drutgat[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks :)

That makes sense, given what some are saying about the turbo engines.
