What it is: The five-seat CR-V is Honda’s popular entry in the thriving compact SUV segment. It was redesigned last year with larger dimensions and updated styling. Base LX versions use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while other trim levels have a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder. All models come with a continuously variable automatic transmission and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
Main competitors include the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.
