The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara is a bargain of a crossover for someone looking for a feature-packed, off-roadable vehicle that's not too concerned with cargo space. 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.
