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 Jeep Liberty is at home on the trail—but not so much in suburban driveways or city streets. The 2010 Subaru Forester may not be as powerful or well-equipped as its rivals, but it really shines in its more carlike dynamics and superior handling.
