2016 Honda CR-V

Pros: Comfortable seating with good headroom and legroom; clever, well-designed cargo solutions; fine ride and handling balance

Cons: No stand-alone factory options means stepping up to expensive high-end models to get desired features

CG Says: The 2016 Honda CR-V is unchanged except for the addition of a new SE model that adds 17-inch alloy wheels and rear privacy glass to the base LX. The CR-V’s “just-right” blend of comfort, refinement, passenger room, and cargo versatility is hard to beat, and the long list of worthwhile upgrades for 2015 solidify this compact SUV’s sterling credentials. High-end models are plenty pricey, but the CR-V remains one of the best compact SUVs on the market.
