With its sleek and stylish exterior, the 2016 Honda CR-V marries the athletic and the beautiful, demonstrating why its perfect for the Douglas and Glenrock area. With a rugged and dynamic performance, as well as a surprising selection of interior features, the Honda CR-V says its the SUV to beat, and it has something to offer every driver. Take a look at this head-to-head match-up with the 2016 Toyota RAV4, and then visit Honda of Casper to test drive the Honda CR-V.


Featuring an aluminum alloy inline 4-cylinder engine, the new Honda CR-V generates 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. This puts it just above the 2016 Toyota RAV4, which has a 2.5L 4-cylinder DOHC engine that realizes 176 horsepower. And with an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway* to the RAV4’s 31 mpg highway, the CR-V also holds the advantage when it comes to fuel economy, which is great for saving money on your Riverton area commute.

The CR-V also holds the advantage in handling, delivering a more nimble and athletic performance. With a 103.1-inch wheelbase, the shorter CR-V is capable of turning more tightly, and it handles with slightly more precision and nuance than the 104.7-inch RAV4. And with its MacPherson strut front suspension and reactive link double wishbone rear suspension, the CR-V offers an intuitive and responsive ride that can adapt quickly to changing terrains. The Toyota RAV4 is less versatile and less capable of adapting to harsher or more rugged terrains.

  • Leather trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 7-speaker audio system
  • 7-inch electrostatic touchscreen
