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. The 2009 Saturn Vue Hybrid isn't fun to drive, but it will ease your reliance on fossil fuels.
