We compared CRV, RDX and RAV4. The styling and performance of the CRV was less than stellar. The RDX was really cramped feeling in both head and legroom with just OK performance. The RAV4 has much more room and comfort (I'm 6'2"). The V6 is quick and smooth and we are getting around 20+ mpg city. I have seen comments of the RAV being noisy or the seats not comfortable. Don't find that at all. This Sport with appearance pkg. and leather seats is quiet and comfortable--almost making you forget it's a SUV and I am a nitpicker.
Performance with decent gas mileage. Good interior size for a smaller SUV. Excellent exterior styling. Fit and finish.
Homelink opener. Automatic climate control in the Sport model.
