Price Comparison: CR-V vs. RAV4 vs. CX-5 vs. Rogue
Like most in their class, each vehicle in this compact SUV comparison starts at around $26,000 and tops out in the mid- to high $30,000s. The specific vehicles we tested were all well equipped with features. Notably, while we’re using MSRPs for this comparison, discounts and incentives can make a big difference. You can find deals and offers on these and other SUVs at our SUV Deals Center.
Our fully loaded Rogue Platinum had all-wheel drive (AWD) and checked in at $38,660. The Platinum trim gets you features such as quilted leather upholstery, a digital gauge cluster, a head-up display, wireless Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and a surround-view camera system.
The Mazda CX-5 we tested was a Signature trim level with AWD. Price? $38,555. The Signature comes with a powerful turbocharged engine plus upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and a head-up display, among other features.
Our RAV4 test vehicle was an outlier. We couldn’t obtain a fully loaded model for testing so we got a RAV4 Hybrid in the XSE trim level. It had a window sticker price of $35,625. The Hybrid XSE doesn’t have a few features that our other SUVs had, such as ventilated seats (they’re available on the RAV4’s top Limited trim level), but it’s otherwise pretty well equipped.
Finally, our top-line CR-V Touring AWD cost $35,870. The Touring has a lot of features, including leather upholstery and a premium audio system. But the CR-V lacks some of the cool features the other test models had, such as a head-up display or a surround-view camera system.
