New SUVs in San Antonio: 2016 CR-V vs. 2016 Rav4

 

Summer is just around the corner, a perfect time to road trip of the many new SUVs in San Antonio! With so many options to choose from, how do you know what SUV is right for you? Fiesta Honda is here to help you out with that decision. We’ve compiled some research on a couple of SUVs with the goal of showing you which one comes out as your ideal vehicle. Let’s look at the differences and similarities between the 2016 CR-V and the 2016 Rav4!

 

Is safety a #1 priority for you? The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring has standard HondaLink Assist, which means it has a unique GPS system to alert emergency crews to come directly to the scene when airbags deploy. The Rav4 does not have this capability, which would delay help if you were to be involved in an accident. In addition to this helpful feature, the CR-V also has better safety ratings! With a 5-star overall rating in the NHTSA crash test, the CR-V can’t possibly get any safer. The Rav4 only has a 4-star overall safety rating.

 

In addition to safety, the CR-V has better fuel economy than the 2016 Rav4. This 185 horsepower SUV gets 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway*. With only 176 horsepower and 24 city/33 hwy MPG*, the Rav4 doesn’t quite keep up with the CR-V. Bottom line? You can have power and efficiency in the CR-V! How cool is that?

 

Finally, the CR-V has features that make the drive overall more comfortable than it would be in the Rav4. The telescoping steering wheel is much better than the Rav4’s tilt steering because it allows a short driver to sit further form the steering wheel while still maintaining contact with the pedals. Also, in the CR-V Touring, memory seats are an ultra convenient feature when you have multiple drivers regularly. The final feature worth noting is the CR-V’s adaptive cruise control. Unlike traditional cruise control (like what the Rav4 offers), the adaptive cruise control adjusts to the speed of the vehicle without the driver having to. That’s a major plus if you’re a frequent driver!

 

Out of these two new SUVs in San Antonio, the CR-V reigns superior! Can you see yourself cruising the streets in a new 2016 CR-V? We surely can and would love for you to stop by Fiesta Honda today for a test drive!
