The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Honda CR-V is a great family vehicle, with a thoughtfully designed and comfortable interior, and improved refinement, but it lacks the confident, sprightly feel present in past CR-Vs. One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner.
