Surprisingly, when we eventually sat down to make an official decision, all three of us were on the same page. The redesigned RAV4 is an excellent crossover, and it's leaps and bounds better than its predecessor. It's also possible that Toyota could improve or refine a few things as running changes based on this test. But even if Toyota remedies all our minor complaints in time for Job 1, we're prepared to defend our decision.
To paraphrase the results of last year's Camry vs. Accord comparison, Toyota may have built a vastly better RAV4, but the CR-V is still the better vehicle.
