Safety Features and Hybrid Option Availability
Both models are loaded with a number of amenities, but the Rav4 inches ahead of its competitor with a few key components. In particular, the Rav4 does well with the extra advanced safety features. Honda Sensing and Toyota Safety carry similar features like lane departure warnings, adaptive cruise control and blind spot assistance. However, the 2016 Rav4 knocks the competition out with pedestrian dedication and auto high beam control. Toyota also carries two front knee airbags plus the same six airbags as its competitor, making the Rav4 a safer option. And for those of you looking for a hybrid option, the 2016 Toyota Rav4 is the only place you can look as Honda doesn't offer a hybrid powertrain. This year Toyota Rav4 has added a hybrid powertrain that is the most powerful and efficient to date.
