Please recommend: 2019 RAV 4 Limited Hydrid or 2019 Honda Civic Sport Touring New Cars

I am looking to purchase a new vehicle 2019 this month, either Toyota 2019 RAV 4 Limited Hydrid or Honda Civic Sport Touring 2019. Both cars are automatic.

Also would being doing Uber/Lyft part time.


Thank You!

That's a huge price difference between the two vehicles. You have to first make up your mind as to whether you need a sedan or a CUV? The hybrid will give you some fuel savings over the Civic but again, at a huge price premium as well. Because the RAV4 is a CUV, it does ride higher than the Civic, and may make getting in & out a bit more difficult for passengers (if you're doing Uber/Lyft part time). I just bought a 2019 RAV4 Limited Hybrid and it's a really nice vehicle.

Thank You! for the info. Heard 2019 models should have that issue fixed...

That is true, I was thinking about the height for both vehicles as well and the cost. Honda is more money savings for me.

It's a band-aid fix. You're money, go for it.

If you are going to drive Uber just find a decent used civic and put the kms on it. In 12-18 months sell it and do it again.

Do not buy new and do Uber.

I wonder why you suggest selling it in 18 months? Isn't selling a car also incur some cost?

FWIW, I have a 2019 Civic Touring 1.5T and haven’t had the issue (been checking).

I’ll need to pay more attention come winter though.

Unfortunately, you heard wrong.
The 1.5T engine is the same design as the previous year.
My kid brother owns a 2018 Hatchback Touring and hasn't experienced the oil dillution issue, as his drives to work everyday is at least an hour commute.

I wouldn't touch any current Honda turd currently using any turbo. Quality has gone down the shitter big time and they are still riding on "reputation" what a freaking joke.

For passengers the Rav4 will be better for the back to get in and out of as the civic has a tighter rear door. But buying a brand new car for people to get in and out of, I'm not sure how the added wear and tear is worth it...

Buy a used car if you intend to drive people around and not care as much about the car getting messed up, not to mention being cheaper for cost of ownership.

op have you considered the 2020 Corolla Hybrid? They seem like an ideal car for ride services.
