Understanding/Comparing RAV4 Engine Spec with CR-V
I hear that 2009 RAV4 engine is a better one with more power and so better than CRV.
Is it true?
RAV4 is 179 hp @ 6000 rpm
CRV is 161 @ 4200
To me it sounds that, CRV is better because it can get 161 hp at only 4200 rpm, while RAV4 deilvers 179hp at 6000 rpm (much higher rpm)
RAV4 has four speed transmission.
Doesnt this mean, the engine rpm will be higher than that of CRV for the same load and speed?
To me it sounds like more rpm in RAV4 and so, more engine wear + more fuel consumption.
I have to decide between RAV4 and CRV. So, please comment
