How the Honda CR-V Stands Up to the CompetitionBlog Dec 14th, 2018
The 2019 Honda CR-V has recently been released into the competitive market of compact SUVs. Among a wide variety of SUVs, the CR-V stands out due to its innovative and modern improvements: a first-in-class safety system with stand-out features such as automatic braking and blind spot warnings. In addition, the 2019 CR-V is not shy in providing the driver with plenty of space, as the cargo area extends to 39.2 cubic feet behind the second row, and 75.8 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.
2019 CR-V vs. 2019 RAV4
The CR-V stands out amongst its highly competitive neighbours. An incomparable feature of the 2019 CR-V is its improved safety system. As compared to the RAV4, the CR-V has a refined lane assisting system. Whereas the RAV4 has a sensitive system that is often inaccurate, the CR-V uses precise and accurate lane departing systems to keep you focused on the road.
In terms of driving, the CR-V has impressive composure, when tested at various speeds. In comparison, its competitor has a substantial body roll and feels chaotic when turning corners. In addition, the RAV4 is more sensitive as it picks up an unwelcomed vibration in the steering wheel and floor– a disadvantage not found in the smooth ride of the CR-V.
2019 CR-V vs. 2019 Forester
The CR-V has a much larger cargo volume than the Forester with its rear seat up– 39.2 vs. 35.4 cubic feet. Additionally, with a low lift-over cargo hatch design, loading and unloading the CR-V is extremely efficient. The CR-V’s cargo hatch lift-over height is 26 inches, while the Forester’s lift-over is 28.4 inches.
To make loading your groceries easier when your hands are full, the CR-V Touring’s liftgate can be opened and closed just by kicking your foot under the back bumper, allowing for a hands-free experience. The competition does not offer a hands-free gesture to open its liftgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.
