“Crossover” is the current automotive buzzword. Every company is trying to break into the segment, sometimes with multiple models. That floods the market with subpar offerings that can be a chore to sort through on your own. Let us help.
Today, we’re comparing two Japanese auto monoliths, Toyota and Honda. Specifically, we’ll examine the 2020 Toyota RAV4 XLE and the 2020 Honda CR-V EX.
Thinking your vehicle is under warranty, taking it in for regular maintenance, and then finding out it isn’t has to be one of the most frustrating feelings we can think of. If you own a new Toyota vehicle, like the 2020 RAV4, you’re all set thanks to ToyotaCare®. It has two major facets: the No Cost Maintenance Plan and the Comprehensive Roadside Assistance guarantee. The No Cost Maintenance Plan covers basic factory maintenance for 2 years / 25,000 miles. Expert service for your vehicle that is completely covered by Toyota. The Road Assistance program is available 24-hours a day for the 2 years, no matter how many miles you drive.
Advanced AWD System
The 2020 RAV4 has the available innovative Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) system with Rear Driveline Disconnect. The TV-AWD system has independent control over the torque sent to each wheel, meaning it can dynamically send power to whichever wheel needs it within milliseconds of slippage occurring. The disconnect mechanism stops driveshaft rotation during 2WD operation, which greatly reduces fuel economy loss, up to 80%. the system gives you traction when you need it, but shuts itself off to give you greater fuel economy for the rest of the drive.
