The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Honda CR-V is a bit homely, but it fits right in for those placing the priority on frugality, safety, and interior space. The 2010 Hyundai Tucson doesn't quite take the title of best small crossover, but it handily grabs "most improved" honors. Kia hits game reset, and gives the 2011 Sportage an appealing new look and feel.
