One of Toyota's most impressive SUVs on the market is the 2017 RAV4, which boasts sleek design along with the security of Toyota's carefully engineered safety features. Since side-by-side comparisons are a fantastic way to find which car works best for you, let's take a look at Toyota's RAV4 next to Subaru's 2017 Forester.

Test Drive the 2017 RAV4 Today

While these two well-crafted SUVs both offer remarkable features, there's an important distinction between the two. While the RAV4 does have a higher MSRP than the Forester, it's for good reason: Toyota boasts some of the best safety features on the market today. The RAV4 comes with Toyota's Star Safety System, which includes Traction Control, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Anti-lock Brake system, Smart Stop Technology, Brake Assist, and more options available with different trims. The Forester does offer slightly better gas mileage than the RAV4 as well as a lower MSRP, but it's difficult to measure up to Toyota's safety technology.
