I've driven a fair amount in both the Rav 4 and the CX-5 and to me the CR-V hits the sweet spot between comfort and handling.

Thanks. So you said you prefer the ride of your crv over the RAV4. How do you describe each ride in terms of smoothness (plush sedan-like vs choppy and stiff)?
The 2017 Rav4 I drove was rough and truck like and got unsettled around bumpy curves. Toyota revamped the Rav this year but apparently didn't really improve it much. The CX-5 has far better suspension that I would describe as sports sedan like- its taut and really feels connected going around turns and the limits seem quite high for an SUV. The CR-V is almost as good in this regard with a little more body roll. But the trade-off is that the CR-V is more comfortable on rougher roads.
