American’s Best-Selling SUV Has Lots of Competition

There are plenty of reasons the Toyota RAV4 was America’s best selling SUV in 2019. With its recent redesign, the RAV4 offers more cargo space, cabin comfort, standard safety features, and technology items like standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In range-topping trims, the RAV4 boasts niceties like heated and ventilated front seats, a panoramic glass roof, hands-free liftgate, wireless device charging, and surround-view camera. 

As good as it is, the RAV4 is pitted against more than a dozen rivals that offer similar levels of value and refinement. Alternatives like the Ford Escape and Mazda CX-5 deliver spry handling and sharp driving dynamics. The Subaru Forester comes with all-wheel drive on every trim, the Chevrolet Equinox boasts a superb reliability rating, and the popular Honda CR-V shines when it comes to cabin comfort and cargo-hauling chores. 

Yes, the RAV4 recently won our 2020 Best Compact SUV for Families award, but that doesn’t mean this Toyota sport-utility can rest on its laurels. We’ve compiled 10 compelling alternatives to the RAV4, including one rapid choice that will never need a single drop of gasoline.
