2019 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2019 Honda CR-V
The current automotive industry is packed to the brim with very good examples of crossover SUVs. The newest Toyota 4Runner model that has arrived at the Colonial Toyota showroom continues to not fit into that box. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota 4Runner vs. 2019 Honda CR-V will very clearly explain why Toyota hasn’t changed the architecture of its popular off-road-ready vehicle in favor of what other automakers have done. The 2019 4Runner continues to be built in the old-school body-on-frame style. This rugged construction method gives it a natural advantage over vehicles that use a unibody construction method, like the 2019 Honda CR-V. The 4Runner makes more power, can tow more and haul more cargo than its Honda CR-V competitor.
