The crossover market is popular right now for a reason. With higher ride heights that offer commanding views of the road and interior spaces with far more versatility than a sedan could provide, crossovers are the perfect choice for active drivers looking for a model that can offer comfortable commuting during the week and enough space for projects and adventures on the weekend.
Two of the most popular options in the compact crossover segment are the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and the 2018 Honda CR-V. Which one offers the best mix of overall performance and value? Keep reading to find pricing, safety, and towing information below.
