For the modern buyer, advanced technology is a must have, which is why we want to direct your attention to the 2017 RAV4. Here at Heart City Toyota, we are prepared to prove our point by putting it head-to-head against one of its leading competitors, the 2017 CR-V. We welcome you to take the next step and put our comparison to the test by visiting our showroom today at 711 North Nappanee Street in Elkhart, IN!

If you are one of those people who loves getting your hands on the latest technology, both for fun and for safety, you’re going to be thrilled by what the Toyota RAV4 has to offer. We’ll start with the center stack, which features a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen and the option to upgrade to a larger, 7-inch display. As for music, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite songs with either the standard 6-speaker audio system or the available 11-speaker JBL® GreenEdge™ premium system. In comparison, the CR-V looks a bit outdated with its standard 5-inch touchscreen and 4-speaker audio system. And, even if you opt for the highest package, you’ll still only be getting a 9-speaker stereo system, and you won’t be able to add features like the RAV4’s available HD Radio™ Predictive Traffic and Doppler Weather overlay1.

But what about safety? When your family and friends are on board, no safety measure is too great, and you deserve a vehicle that offers a wide range of standard and available protection features. To that end, it’s hard to beat the Toyota Star Safety System™, which comes standard on every 2017 Toyota RAV4 model. Comprising six different features, you’ll have peace of mind on the road, especially when combined with eight standard airbags2. You simply won’t find this many features coming standard on the CR-V, which relies on its 4-feature Honda Sensing™ system to offer protection for you without adding extra packages or opting for a higher trim level. Its available Multi-Angle Rearview camera3 is a nice addition, but you won’t have the split-screen display capability that comes with the RAV4’s optional Bird’s Eye View Camera4 or the unique Perimeter Scan feature.   

We would be remiss if this comparison didn’t take a look at what’s underneath the hood of our challengers. The Honda CR-V comes equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and achieves 180 lb.-ft. of torque, which does slightly out-muscle the RAV4’s 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that gets 172 lb.-ft. of torque. However, in the RAV4 you’ll be able to access a more spirited ride with its Sport Mode, available paddle shifters, and a special suspension on the SE trim level. These add-ons can a make a big difference when enhancing a drive to Island Park.

As your local and trustworthy Toyota dealer, Heart City Toyota is ready to assist in every step of the purchasing process. Let our staff get started on your payment options by filling out our online Finance Application today! We would be happy to pick up where this 2017 Toyota RAV4 vs 2017 Honda CR-V in Elkhart, IN, comparison leaves off, so don’t hesitate to give us a call today!

I had been searching for a Rav4 Hybrid for a few weeks and was surprised how little attention I got from other dealers. When I called about a car I found online at Heart City, DJ Baker answered my call and then proceeded to actually ask me some questions about what I wanted and then proceeded to go out and find me that car. The entire process was quick and easy. It was worth the effort and savings to catch a train from Chicago to South Bend (DJ even picked me up from the train) to pick up the car in Elkhart, Indiana. If you are looking for a Toyota, give DJ a chance to find you what you are looking for.

Both Brett and Joey were very knowledgeable, making it easy to make decisions related to financing and warranties and they were not pushy at all, just provided information so that I could make the best decision for myself. I would recommend them and will be back when it's time. I absolutely love the car I ended up getting and I it was the right place to find the right car for me.

The staff at Heart City were down to earth and easy to talk to. I liked taking the test drive with just my spouse and I in the car. They offer extras on top of the basic purchase but are not pushy about selling them to you. I like the certified used cars and low Toyota financing interest rate. I would definitely shop there again and am happy with our current purchase.

We did alot of texting which made it really easy to communicate during my busy work schedule. The SUV was everything that I had hoped for when I got there.

Richard Cripe was great to work with. He has so much patience as I was having difficulty choosing between two colors that were available. He went out of the way and pulled both cars next to each other so I could look at them side by side. He gave input, but no pressure. This helped make the choice much easier and I went with Lunar Rock, a new color that I love. Richard is also very knowledgeable about all the features and the Toyota products. Financing was a breeze and Harold was great to work with.
