Versus The Nissan Rogue

Compare Toyota RAV4 vs 2018 Nissan Rogue

When it comes to providing drivers with the longevity and durability that comes with decades of exceptional service, the Toyota brand knows it reigns supreme.

We suggest reading through our quick comparison and taking time to visit our dealership to find out for yourself on a test drive.

  • Both models offer all-wheel drive, but the RAV4 offers a six-speed transmission while the Rogue offers a variable transmission

Technology

Versus The Hyundai Tucson

Compare Toyota RAV4 vs Hyundai Tucson

When Phoenix drivers need an SUV that is both affordable and efficient, we highly recommend the 2018 Toyota RAV4 that is not only capable of fulfilling these requirements but can also do so with style. How does it compare to competitors like the 2018 Hyundai Tucson? We're glad you asked.

Performance

  • Our Glendale customers can expect to find a 2.5-liter engine on the RAV4, while the Tucson offers a 2.0-liter engine.
  • Enjoy 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque with the RAV4, but only expect 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque with the Hyundai SUV.
  • Standard towing capacity in the RAV4 is an impressive 1,500 pounds, yet the Tucson can only muster enough power to tow 1,000 pounds.

Technology & Safety

  • Voice-activated controls help Tempe drivers stay in command without risking your safety, which is why the RAV4 offers this standard. The Tucson? Don't expect that option on the base level.
  • Parking Distance Sensors are available on the 2018 RAV4, yet the 2018 Tucson still doesn't feel it necessary to offer them, even on the highest trim level.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring shouldn't be part of a package that you need to spend extra for, which is why the RAV4 offers this on select trims. Does the Tucson?
  • A power sunroof/moonroof is helpful in ensuring total enjoyment for you and your passengers, and the RAV4 offers this feature standard on select trims, while the Tucson only has it an option.

Special Options & Trims

  • The RAV4 offers exciting features and six different trim levels for its gas-powered model, while the Tucson only provides five trims and no hybrid option like the RAV4 does.
  • To get a package containing Lane Departure Warning, Rear Parking Sensors, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, you'd need to spend an additional $2,500 after springing for the highest trim of the Tucson. The RAV4 can offer premium safety features without adding expensive packages.
  • Both offer all-wheel drive, but the 2018 RAV4 gives you the chance to upgrade with a variety of options and packages that are affordable, while the Tucson has just one Ultimate Package to offer.

Versus The Ford Escape

Compare the 2018 Toyota RAV4 & Ford Escape

When it comes to finding an affordable SUV that doesn't lose points for style, the Toyota RAV4 is capable of fitting the bill. When Avondale drivers want something to feel proud to drive, this model certainly holds up, and when you compare it to the Ford Escape, the perks get even better. While the Escape is a worthwhile SUV to test drive, the RAV4 comes out ahead in many important ways.

Power and Performance

  • While the Escape offers 4WD, the RAV4 offers a more efficient AWD alternative that is equipped automatically for a capable driving experience.
  • With the RAV4, Phoenix drivers can expect to find ECO and Sport Modes that deliver an exciting experience, while the Escape doesn't have that standard.
  • With front-wheel drive models, the Escape fails to offer as much fuel economy as the RAV4 does.

Technology and Safety

  • Drivers in Glendale who are searching for an SUV with Lane Departure Alert With Steering Assistant and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control will find these features and more on the RAV4 with standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P. The Escape offers similar features in separate trims and packages.
  • Comparably-equipped models differ in pricing, with the RAV4 providing the exciting features you want for around $3,000 less than the Escape.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is available on the RAV4, but is it on the Escape's base trim? Unfortunately, no.

Available Special Options & Trim levels

  • When our Tempe customers shop for an SUV, you want options, which is why the RAV4 is a better fit because it offers more trims than the Escape.
  • While the Escape offers SYNC and SYNC 3 on select trims, the RAV4 offers Entune and Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite.
  • Both models offer packages that can improve your comfort, but when you're already paying more for the Escape than the RAV4, those extras can add up to a lot more.

Drivers in Peoria are encouraged to visit us and discover what the Toyota RAV4 has to offer above the Ford Escape by taking a test drive.

Versus The Kia Sportage

Toyota RAV4 vs. Kia Sportage

When comparing apples to apples, it can be tough to make a decision. The good news is that the Toyota RAV4 and Kia Sportage couldn't be more different from one another. While the RAV4 offers a stylish exterior that is noticeably different from the Sportage, it also manages to maintain the brand's sterling reputation for durability and reliability. Decades of supporting the busy lifestyles of Glendale drivers goes a long way, but when you research these models, you will discover for yourself how they compare.

Power & Performance

  • When it comes to power, Phoenix drivers can expect to find better fuel economy in the RAV4 than in the Kia Sportage.
  • The Sportage has a 2.4-liter engine, while the RAV4 has a 2.5-liter engine.
  • Both models offer similar fuel economy, but for AWD on the RAV4 you will spend less.

Technology & Safety

  • An MP3 player gives you so many more options to enjoy your favorite music, but with the Sportage, you won't have that option. The RAV4 offers it standard.
  • A power sunroof/moonroof is an enjoyable feature that helps you to experience the drive better, but while the RAV4 has this option, the Sportage does not.
  • Enjoy Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control as part of the Toyota Safety Sense™ system, while the Sportage doesn't offer these features on the base trim.

Trims & Packages

  • The RAV4 offers a package with a hands-free height-adjustable foot-activated power liftgate with jam protection. The Sportage does not have that same feature, which can be a drag for Tempe drivers.
  • If you want the Toyota Safety Sense™ P package, you'll need to get the RAV4, which offers it on the base trim, while the Sportage does not offer this.
  • The base trim RAV4 offers a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, while the Sportage makes you settle for a five-inch touchscreen.
