I hate to say this to Rav4 lovers but I tried out both models new and old of these cars and I hated the tinny/plastic feel of the RAV4 like the manufacturers had come up with this rad design and then they gave it an interior of mutton dressed as lamb. SOmethings didnt add up with the exterior glamour of the RAV4, its interior and its price. It seemed the RAv4 didnt come near in comparison when I first drove my CRV, the seats in my (now) CRV were very comfortable - I found it very easy to drive and for whatever reason didnt feel as nervous driving the CRV as opposed to the RAV4 - in other words the shortness and height of the RAV4 while it affords more view capacity - I felt unsafe in it, the CRV was snug and it was like me and my black beauty were meant to be together. I love the quirky design of the CRV's interior and where the gears and hand brake are located - their cabin trays and loads of space to put things - the interior design of the CRV far excedes that of RAV4. Its performance is probably the same but CRV feels less Tinny. The CRV designers have been imaginative - with their interior, RAV4 seemed like any other new vehicle trying to make a killing by using the cheapest materials possible and making them look expensive - I feel consumers of certain makes of cars are deceiving - Honda CRV I have found - do not - it is what it is a brilliant car.
