Honda CR-V vs Toyota RAV4 Interior Specs

Before you load up to hit the shore, you need to know that you have the space for all your umbrellas, coolers, blankets, and, of course, your company.

You can get a good look at how the interior specs of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 measure up by looking at the table below:


Honda CR-V

Toyota RAV4







Passenger Volume

105.9 cubic feet

98.9 cubic feet

Cargo Volume (behind first/second row)

75.8/39.2 cubic feet

69.8/37.5 cubic feet

With both SUVs, you'll get a 2-row cabin with room for five passengers. However, riders may be more comfortable in the Honda CR-V, which has 7 cubic feet of additional passenger volume over the Toyota RAV4.

A lot of this extra passenger space is felt by second-row passengers. The front row gets roughly 41 inches of legroom in both vehicles, but rear-seat passengers get more space to stretch out in the Honda CR-V than the Toyota RAV4. The Honda has 40.4 inches of rear legroom, compared to just 37.8 inches of rear legroom in the Toyota.

It's also worth noting that the CR-V has an extra 6 cubic feet of cargo volume over the RAV4.

Smart Safety Features: CR-V vs RAV4

Wherever the road may take you, it's important to feel confident that you'll reach your destination safely.

That's something both the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 strive to promise by offering a full range of standard driver-assistive and smart safety features. These include:

  • Forward-collision mitigation
  • Lane-departure warning features
  • Lane-keeping systems
  • Smart cruise control

Both SUVs have standard automatic high beams, which automatically toggle on-and-off when other vehicles approach.

If you choose to drive the hybrid version of either of model, you'll get an added layer of pedestrian detection and protection with the Honda CR-V. This comes with an Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) that makes an engine noise whenever it detects pedestrians.

Hybrid vehicles tend to be hard to notice during city driving because they don't make noise when operating on electric power. The AVAS creates an engine-like noise, so pedestrians can hear you coming.

Unfortunately, the Toyota RAV4 hybrid doesn't offer a similar level of pedestrian detection to the Honda CR-V Hybrid.
