First introduced as a 1997 model, the Honda CR-V has long been one of the most popular and best choices in the compact SUV class. Its combination of interior space, clever packaging, easy access, car-like handling and maneuverability, decent fuel economy, and excellent reliability have made it a favorite with a broad range of buyers, from small families to empty-nesters. Those virtues also contribute to strong resale value. Honda has stayed close to the original formula for 20 years and five generations, adding safety and comfort features over the years without increasing exterior dimensions much. Competitors include the Ford Escape, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.
Commuter vehicles have a minimum EPA-estimated mileage of 30 mpg combined. May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
Small Family vehicles include mid-size and larger sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs and minivans with four doors and five seats.
