Buying Tips:

If you have your mind set on a Honda product but feel that the CR-V is just a little too plain and homely, you should check out the Acura RDX, which gets more exciting styling and a turbocharged engine, for just slightly more than a loaded CR-V.

Other Choices:

If you like the 2010 Honda CR-V, also consider:

  • Chevrolet Equinox
  • Hyundai Tucson
  • Kia Sportage
  • Subaru Forester
  • Toyota RAV4

Reason Why:

The 2010 Honda CR-V used to be more of a niche vehicle, aiming for customers who wanted a vehicle with rugged styling yet more carlike features and handling, but in recent years the CR-V, like its peers, have become a big part of the market, replacing sedans and minivans. The Chevrolet Equinox was completely redesigned for 2010, gaining a more fuel-efficient standard four-cylinder engine and greatly improved interior. It’s worth considering, but the 2010 CR-V has a much more spacious interior. The CR-V is also quite a bit bigger than either the Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage—both of which are aging designs that don’t return the fuel economy of the class leaders; the steering wheel doesn’t telescope in either of those Korean models. The Toyota RAV4 provides a plusher ride, and it's the only one in this crowd with an available third-row seat. The Subaru Forester feels a bit sportier than the rest, it comes with standard all-wheel drive, and after its most recent redesign it’s more spacious and comfortable. If you want a manual transmission, you'll need to look to the Sportage, Tucson, or Forester. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that only one model in this group—the RAV4 (non Sport)—has held on to the old rear-mounted spare. For the way that vehicles are used in this class, it’s a handicap.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
