Compact SUV with less road noise

edited November -1 in General Discussion
I am comparing 2010 Honda CR-V vs Toyota RAV4. I did test drive them but in different roads.

1. Any idea which one has less road noise from inside?

2. RAV4 advertises its AWD as on-demand all wheel drive which kicks in only when needed. EPA mpg estimates are same for both though. Practically does it make a different in terms of mpg by having on-demand AWD?

I know Subaru Outback has better mileage with it's CVT system but I am worried about high maintainance cost for '10 Outback with its battery powered hand brake and standard alloy wheels.
