The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is one of the most popular crossovers on the market today, showcasing an athletic style that is attractive to drivers who wants the space of an SUV but the efficiency of a smaller vehicle. If you are the type of person who has to have it all, the RAV4 is for you.
When comparing the 2017 Toyota RAV4 to the 2017 Buick Enclave, an important aspect to keep in mind is whether or not you are in the market for a luxury vehicle like an Enclave or a mainstream model like the RAV4. The Enclave comes standard with premium features such as adjustable seating, 4G built-in WiFi, and driver assistive features, however those extras come at a price. It's good to note that most of the features found standard on the Enclave are found on the higher trims of the RAV4, which still costs less than the base Enclave.
|2017 Toyota RAV4||vs||2017 Buick Enclave|
|23/30||Fuel Economy (City/Highway)||15/22|
|2.5-Liter 4-Cylinder DOHC 16-Valve with Dual VVT-i||Engine||3.6L VVT V6 Engine|
One of the ways the 2017 Toyota RAV4 has an advantage over the 2017 Buick Enclave is that there is an option to purchase the hybrid version of the RAV4. This means that the RAV4 has the potential to get up to 34 miles per gallon in the city compared to only 15 miles per gallon in the city for the Buick Enclave, which does not have a hybrid option. For those looking from an economical standpoint this is a smart choice, especially when taking into consideration the Enclave's already large price tag compared to the RAV4's.
Another notable difference between the two vehicles is the space. While the Buick Enclave comes with enough cabin space to seat 7 passengers, this means that there is less legroom for those driving in the Enclave compared to in the RAV4. The RAV4's legroom measures in at 37.2 inches, while the Enclave gets 36.8 inches in the second row and 33.2 inches in the third row. Those who have driven long distances know the importance of that extra space to feel comfortable.
