2020 Honda CR-V vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid

Ali vs.

Frazier? Cat vs.

dog? RAV4 vs.


The two go toe-to-toe for shoppers’ attention and there’s hardly a bad pick.

The RAV4 makes concessions for its style, the CR-V doesn’t make many promises with its looks.

The CR-V is more refined, base RAV4s are better equipped.

The Ford Escape is new and steers more car-like; we especially appreciate the hybrid version.

The Chevy Equinox is aging, but still popular.

We like the Honda’s interior better.

The Nissan Rogue is available and more affordable in many cases, but the Honda’s a classier ride.

The Forester was our Best Car To Buy 2019, we highly recommend driving it.
