We know that many West Michigan area drivers look to crossovers like the 2014 Toyota RAV4 as their family vehicle of choice, but how do its safety ratings compare to a competing model like the 2014 Honda CR-V. Honda’s crossover has been one of the vehicles in the top of its class for years, and that includes power, accessories, and safety.

The CR-V Holds its Own

While both the RAV4 and the CR-V earn comparable scores in areas like front and rear side crash tests, the NHTSA has found that the Honda crossover comes out ahead in some key areas, including:

  • Front passenger crash test—Honda’s CR-V earns five stars to Toyota’s three stars
  • Side pole crash safety—Honda earns five stars to Toyota’s four stars
  • Overall frontal crash safety—Honda earns five stars to Toyota’s four stars
  • Overall safety rating—Honda earns five stars to Toyota’s four stars

Not only does the CR-V come out ahead of the RAV4 on safety, but you get more power in Honda’s crossover too. The Honda 4-cylinder is rated at 185 hp and outperforms the RAV4’s 176 hp with ease.
