used 2016 honda crv vancouver island courtenay comox valley bcIf you are considering a preowned Toyota RAV4, you should also pay close attention to the 2016 Honda CR-V LX. Both models are popular small SUVs, but the CR-V offers a few more advantages over the RAV4, making it a great choice if you need interior versatility and smooth on-road performance.

Anchoring the 2016 CR-V is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the RAV4, which uses a six-speed automatic transmission, the Honda SUV comes matched up to a continuously variable transmission, which is regarded for its buttery, shiftless driving experience. It’s more agile and offers better acceleration too, scoring higher in Motor Trend’s figure-eight test. The CR-V completed the course in 27.8 seconds at 0.60 g, while the Toyota took the second-place spot with 28.6 seconds at 0.57 g.

Inside the cabin, both platforms boast a comfortable two-row cabin, but the CR-V offers more cargo versatility with the inclusion of its Magic Seat. If you need to haul larger items, folding the second row is easier in the CR-V – just pull on the strap near the side of the seat bottoms, and watch the headrests fold automatically, followed by the seat-back folding forward. There’s no need to walk over to the side doors – you can make these adjustments quickly and conveniently from the cargo area.
