Best Small SUVOne of the fastest growing segments of the SUV market is compact crossovers, and the competition is stiff. Despite every major SUV maker trying to prove that they can blend power and efficiency in the body of a sport utility model, the Honda CR-V has risen to the top over and over again. This perennially popular vehicle features a unique mix of engine technologies, interior comforts, and unique styling accents that have earned it the title of best small SUV.

Ample Interior Space

The appeal of an SUV for many drivers is the amount of cargo and passenger space they offer. The CR-V distinguishes itself by providing plenty of both, without having to resort to a boxy, tank-like design. If you need to load up the entire family and all of their stuff, the CR-V can handle it. The 2014 CR-V model provides 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat up, or you can quickly and easily fold it down and increase the interior capacity to an impressive 70.9 cubic feet. Many other vehicles in this class can’t compete with those numbers.

Surprising Fuel Economy

For too long, drivers have had to choose between the size and convenience of an SUV and the fuel efficiency of a smaller vehicle. With the CR-V, Honda managed to bridge that gap, and each successive model year has featured improved overall gas mileage. The 2014 Honda CR-V can get 31 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.*

User Friendly Design

The CR-V has always been designed with the needs of real world drivers in mind. Rather than trying to cram it full of bells, whistles, and unproven technologies, Honda has focused on the features drivers actually want like Bluetooth and a rearview camera, and then found clever ways to deliver them. With the 2014 model, for example, Honda designed the dashboard and essential controls to be highly visible, easily accessible, and logically laid out.
