The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
5.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. With the off-road-focused Renegade model now gone, it's hard to see much value in the 2012 Jeep Liberty, as there were already plenty of better choices for those looking to spend most of the time on-road, commuting or shuttling kids..
