Do not buy the Honda CRV vehicle. The 1.5 liter turbo engines are faulty. They are leaking gasoline into the engine crank case. The oil is becoming diluted and over filled. Honda is refusing to address this very widespread problem. Honda is saying it is a cold weather issue because the engines are not warming up enough. This is not true. My dilution problem started in the heat of the summer and I always take long 45 minute drives to work each day and I have a heated garage. Honda needs to recall these engines and do a buy back. I went to the dealer and they told me that I shouldn't use my heater. The dealer wouldn't even give me a complimentary oil change but they did agree that the engine oil was overfilled and had gasoline in it.

Cr used to be the best opinion. I've spent hours reading their magazines throughout the years and from what I noticed they are biased for some manufacturers. One of them is Toyota. Toyota's make great cars and that is true, what how far does CR have their nose up Toyota's ass. Honda lately is on their shit list as well as Mopar for years. Thankfully we live in America where there is competition of opinions.

Ford Escape all the way! Excellent small SUV. Has every technology feature available. Multiple engine choices. Great MPGs and reliability. Top seller for a reason!

No mention of the Honda CRV......Probably because of the two major design flaws in the CRV: 1) CRV Gas leaking into the oil pan and not burning off......This is a cancer risk , as those fumes escape, and will get sucked into the cabin ventilation system. 2) CRV Vibration at idle. Very irritating, and causes noise also. Yes Honda still attempts to charge up to $40K this poorly designed vehicle. And there is no real fix for the gas fumes failure 1) above..... so they are ignoring it !!!

I drove trucks for 20 years and they rode like a top of the line Caddy compared to my RAV4. They are dependable but the absolute worst suspension imaginable. I've owned 2 brand new but never again will I buy one. I go out of my mind when I drive my wife's car it drives me crazy. Goodbye Toyota.

Took my 2005 manual awd Element in for maintenance recently. They gave me a 2018 CRV loaner. Had it all day. Other than very comfortable seats in the CRV couldn't wait to get back into my Element. Better road feel, handled better, quieter (my Nokian tires maybe), better visibility all around, more room, better stereo, easier to park, better turn radius and could put more stuff in it if I had too. Honda motors co.are a bunch of idiots for not improving and/or turning the Element into a true off road capable vehicle.

the market is flooded with SUVs if you're looking to not be the basic bitch out there don't get a SUV. never thought I'd see the day where a station wagon shows you're different and cool
Shao Yu Mai Wang (1 year ago)
No surprise that this segment has grown so much. Most car manufacturers don't offer wagons at all and hatchbacks only rarely, so what is someone to do if they want utility nowadays and they don't want a Subaru or a VW at the low end of the market? These things are all hideous but have some practicality. Unfortunately they also have crap handling, inflated price tags, and worse fuel economy than sedans and theoretical wagons. Thanks, carmakers. BMW, which barely sells any cars in North America compared to the giants of the industry, manages to sell wagon, hatchback, coupe, gran coupe, and sedan versions of the 3 series, but the big manufacturers give us no choice at all within most segments. So much for real choices being available.

"Automated Emergency Braking" is a bit of a misnomer since it uses the "regular" (service) brakes, not the "emergency" (parking/hand)brake. That being said, you should ding any car that intersperses any automated system between the driver and the parking brake. It needs to be the last failsafe to bring the car to a stop in case of complete electrical/hydraulic system failure.

My 2014 Mazda CX 5 is just as god if not better than the Rav. Toyota seemed to nickel and dime us regarding options and the gas mileage was better than CR is indicating on the Rav. Happy with our choice. Next up is the Outback for some camping ⛺️
Sam S (1 year ago)
I find it interesting that they give bonus points for automatic forward collision across the line, the newly redesigned RAV4 they talk about here still is outperformed by the older Subaru Forester. Only the Forester gets an Excellent rating, everything beneath it scores Very Good or worse. For those wondering where the Honda CRV is, their webpage says "In Testing" at the bottom of the ratings - so they could not mention it here when putting together the best of the small SUVs.
Chris Smith (1 year ago)
Sam S screw the RAV4. i want the previous generation. hate the design on this one
Jorge Rodriguez (1 year ago)
Where is the Mazda CX5 or CRV in this comparisom? this is a weird comparisom without them, in the fuel efficiency(taking the hybrids aside) CX5 is the best with their SkyActiv Engines, it also handles great, has decent space and looks way nicer than the rest. And CRV is selling like hotcakes

They omitted the CR-V in the print edition of the auto annual magazine too. They lose all credibility when they exclude the best selling compact SUV on the market. I'm still driving a 2006 I bought new. It has about 100,0000 miles and runs like a watch. Have done nothing except routine maintenance. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

matt9c1 (1 year ago)
I chose my RAV4 because it doesn't send power to the wheels via a rubber band. A rubber band that WILL break without warning and cost over $3K to replace. It also doesn't rely on a turbo to make power. Another lubricated part to wear and fail. I will stick with my simple Toyota.
Glen Alkuino (1 year ago)
With all due respect you should check different Forums for Subaru owners,one of the most reliable and trustworthy brands out there........Period!

Redd I have a 2005 Subaru legacy 225,000 km on it. just normal wear and tear (tires and brakes) . I am going to buy another Subaru as this older on is going to my son. Wife has a 2012 Imprezza.
Double JJ (1 year ago)
I love the Forester but if I have to choose another crossover I would go for the CX-5. However I'm not a crossover person. I'm sorry. Sedans/hatchbacks FTW, never a crossover.
Tech Defender (1 year ago)
What's wrong with the CX5? It's handles the best, looks the best, is reliable, has safety tech (not standard) and has a real auto.

Jim Crants (11 months ago)
Right now, the 2018 CR-V is their second-ranked compact SUV, not significantly behind the 2018 Forester. RAV4 is close behind, with a bigger gap back to the Rogue, CX-5, Sportage, etc. So they like the model. They also liked the CX-5, in the driving tests, but its predicted reliability is only average, versus very good for the CR-V, Forester, and RAV4.

Sorry but, i will never own/drive a vehicle that does any part of the driving without my own input. All these "collision avoidance" gimmicks create lazy drivers with no accountability. If you have to rely on technology to drive for you, you don't belong behind the wheel. Period. Driving is a PRIVILEGE, not a right
Astral Dragon (8 months ago)
if you don't want technology driving for you, then just hope you're dead before fully perfected self driving cars become the main stream norm. not sure how i feel about self driving cars though, i can't imagine ever enjoying just being driven by an automated car and doing nothing, there's just that special something about being in control of a vehicle you enjoy driving. maybe we'll grow to like them, maybe not.

Everything that makes an HR-V an "SUV" makes it a little bit worse than a Fit. It's not a *bad* car but it's not truly good like the Fit is. You pay dearly for being able to say you drive a compact crossover rather than a hatchback.
