The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Honda CR-V is a clear winner for those seeking security and utility at a good price, provided hip styling or street cred isn't near the top of the list. With its available V-6 engine, the 2009 Saturn Vue is a bit more fun to drive than other compact SUVs; otherwise it’s not a standout.
