Compared with Competitors
When contrasted with the technology features offered onboard rival vehicles like the Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4, the CR-V emerges as a prime choice in the popular SUV segment.
In the Honda CR-V Touring model, driver memory settings come standard, which is a feature the Nissan Rogue does not offer.
Adaptive cruise control, offered standard in the CR-V Touring model, automatically changes vehicle speed to keep drivers at a safe, consistent following distance from other cars, which is another feature the Rogue does not offer.
The CR-V EX, EX-L, and Touring trims offer standard HondaLink Assist, which uses a GPS receiver and cellular system to call emergency personnel to the car’s location whenever airbags deploy in the vehicle. This is a feature not found in the Toyota RAV4.
The CR-V additionally offers a one-touch power driver window, which is another amenity not found in the RAV4.
