Safety is also a very important aspect of a car and when its down to the wire, both cars have been rated 5 stars by the NCAP and are both considered very safe cars in general.

Interior and Exterior comparison

The RAV4s interior is more rugged functional compared to the more clean and simplistic interior of the Corolla Cross which features white leather seats. Both feature a multimedia interface that supports Apple Carplay.

Both bodies and exteriors are almost identical. They are both made from a mix of galvenized steel and aluminium which are both lightweight and durable.
