2021 Ford Bronco Sport vs 2021 Toyota RAV4: Compare Crossover SUVs

Compact crossovers can be as difficult to distinguish as daytime soap operas. New for 2021, the Ford Bronco Sport bucks that trend with retro-mod styling inspired by the big Bronco yet with the ride quality of the Ford Escape. The RAV4 has been around much longer, and Toyota injected new life with its truck-like 2019 redesign that followed with hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, making the bestselling vehicle in America (that is not a full-size truck) even more compelling. 

Is the RAV4’s balance of power and efficiency enough to hold off the upstart Bronco Sport’s irrepressible charm? In a country that prizes the young and the restless, the Bronco Sport has an edge, but the RAV4 offers more practicality for the days of our lives.

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport carves out a new all-terrain niche for one of the most beloved off-road names in auto history. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
