Pricewatch: Toyota RAV4 v Honda CR-V

While the small MPV market is going to hot up over the next year or two with entries from Vauxhall, Peugeot, Citroën, Chevrolet and Volkswagen, Honda and Toyota are past masters of the sector.

The RAV-4 and CR-V brands have been phenomenally successful and the new CR-V seems like it will hit the spot as much as the outgoing one, as the strong residual values shown here illustrate.

Buyers know these two Japanese giants produce quality cars that work, and such strong showings here suggest the newcomers are going to have a tough time wrestling sales away from these two.
