Are you searching for a new vehicle that is as versatile as it is fuel-efficient? If so, then you will want to see the Honda CR-V crossover. The CR-V name is synonymous with versatility at an affordable price, seeing that the CR-V has been in Honda's lineup since long before the term 'crossover' was even coined. For 2016, the new CR-V includes all of the high-tech features that you expect from any Honda car, but with the added benefit of a spacious cargo area and available AWD. Space Coast Honda, serving drivers near Cocoa, Melbourne, Rockledge, Viera, Titusville, and Cocoa Beach, would like to invite local drivers to visit our showroom to explore and test drive the affordable and stylish Honda CR-V in Cocoa, FL.

How does the Honda CR-V stack up against one of its oldest rivals, the Toyota RAV4? Continue reading to see!
Small crossovers are some of the top-selling vehicles in America, thanks in large part to their superb mix of versatility with fuel efficiency. While both of these compact crossovers tend to sip fuel, the 2016 Honda CR-V outshines the Toyota RAV4 by a significant margin. Returning an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 26 miles per gallon in the city and 33 mpg on the highway (29 mpg combined city/hwy), the new CR-V bests the RAV4 by an average of three miles per gallon. From commuting, weekend trips, and transporting cargo, you can easily rack up a lot of miles with a versatile crossover, that is why the CR-V's three mpg advantage over the RAV4 is so striking. To save money on fuel and spend less time at the gas pump, choose the Honda CR-V over Toyota's RAV4!
The 2016 Honda CR-V crossover's smaller, more efficient 2.4-liter inline-4 engine also generates more power than the Toyota RAV4's 2.5-liter engine. The potent and efficient 2.4-liter Honda powerplant produces a highly capable 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, which gives the CR-V a nine horsepower and nine lb-ft of torque advantage over the RAV4. While that extra power is significant alone, keep in mind that the more powerful CR-V is also about 100 lbs. lighter than its rival from Toyota, meaning that the CR-V will feel quite noticeably more powerful and capable out on the road. It is hard to argue with more power and better fuel efficiency when shopping for a new crossover.
With its fuel-efficient and powerful standard engine, the 2016 Honda CR-V provides great value for crossover buyers -- and that's even before we mention its starting price! The CR-V crossover's starting MSRP of $23,745 is nearly $1,000 less than its compact crossover rival from Toyota. If you are in the market for an AWD equipped model, the new CR-V once again undercuts the price of the RAV4 by about $600. Greater fuel efficiency, more power -- and a lower price? It sounds like the choice of the 2016 Honda CR-V over the Toyota RAV4 is a no-brainer!
