CR-V in the Market

Of the nine crossovers in Cars.com's SUV shootout, the CR-V placed sixth. Aesthetic issues played a large part – the car has always looked quirky. In comparison, up-and-coming competitors like the redesigned Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage offer scads of fresh appeal. No doubt they'll eat away at the CR-V's sales lead this year.

Still, Honda has done well with the current generation. This CR-V is a competent choice: comfortable, spacious, efficient and reliable. We're due for another CR-V within the next few years, but if you're shopping a small crossover today, the existing car is very much worth a look.
