Which Compact SUV is Victorious?

As top players in the popular small crossover segment, the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 rank near the top of our compact SUV rankings. They both deliver a comfortable cabin, high predicted reliability rankings, and great performance.

The Honda CR-V was named our 2019 Best Compact SUV for the Money award winner due to its best mix of quality and value. But the Toyota RAV4, fresh off a 2019 redesign, sports improvements under the hood and inside the cabin that give the CR-V a run for its money. The CR-V received a refresh for 2020, but is it enough to keep up with the totally revamped Toyota?
