Jamie Deaton: This is the Honda CR-V and if you're watching this, you're probably thinking about buying one. The Honda CR-V is a compact SUV, but you can also call it a crossover, because it rides on a car platform and isn't meant for heavy off-road use. It competes against other crossover SUVs like the Toyota RAV4, GMC Terrain, and Chevrolet Equinox. Reviewers really like the CR-V because it offers a great combination of practicality and affordability. In fact, it's an award-winning car. For 2010, it was our best compact crossover SUV for the money, and Kelley Blue Book named it a Best Resale Value Award Winner. In fact, the only real flaws that the CR-V has, is what it doesn't offer. With the CR-V you can't get a third row seat, a V-6 engine, or a manual transmission. But that's pretty common for the class. Another very slight downside to the CR-V is that its base price and gas mileage are only about average for the class. The bottom line on the CR-V is if you can live without V6 power or manual transmission or a third row seat, it offers a great combination of factors that should really work for most families. If you want to learn more about the CR-V, check out our other videos on its seating interior features, how it handles cargo, how it drives, and the other crossover SUVs you'll want to consider.
