We offer helpful comparisons of some of our most popular models on our website, and this week we’re taking a look at the stylish new 2013 Toyota RAV4. We were impressed as soon as this compact SUV hit our lot, but we’ll let its features speak for themselves – let’s compare it to one of its biggest competitors, the Honda CR-V!

    2013 Toyota RAV3 in N Charlotte offers a stylish new look

    Both of these compact SUVs offer style, but the N Charlotte Toyota RAV4 was restyled for the 2013 model year and we absolutely love everything it has to offer, like a slick display audio system with 6 inch screen, 17 inch wheels, fog lights, and a SofTex trimmed interior. However, we could brag all day – let’s get down to the comparison! 

    The 2013 Toyota RAV4 in N Charlotte edges out the Honda CR-V in several areas. For one, it has more cargo space; this is essential if you’re looking for a vehicle that’s conducive to hauling around a family and all that comes with it! This new Toyota boasts just over 73 cubic feet of interior space, as well as three more feet of passenger space than the Honda CR-V. Even when the rear seats are up, you’ll have plenty of room for all of your cargo with over 38 cubic feet in the back! 

    The new Toyota RAV4 also has more technological upgrades to showcase. It includes options like HD Radio technology – not found on the Honda CR-V – which lends unbelievable clarity to your listening experience. This N Charlotte Toyota also offers the Smart Key System, which brings a push button start to the table, as well as incredibly easy entry! 

    Get incredible fuel efficiency in the new Toyota RAV4!

    Both of these SUVs offer great fuel efficiency considering their size, but thanks to engine upgrades for the 2013 model year, the N Charlotte Toyota RAV4 edges past the Honda CR-V. It includes a 6-speed automatic transmission this year (and upgrade from the previous five-speed), and results in 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway! Who DOESN’T want to save money at the gas pump? 

    The 2013 Toyota RAV4 also provides an exceptional experience inside and out. It comes standard with features like the Toyota Star Safety System, which is a set of six safety features developed and implemented by Toyota for the ultimate driving experience. You’ll also be privy to ToyotaCare when you purchase a new Toyota, which means you’ll get two years or 25,000 miles of complimentary routine service!
