The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Honda CR-V isn't exactly sprightly, but it nails efficiency on a few levels and finally brings more features to the family-wagon fight. The sharp-looking 2014 Subaru Forester gets a lot more comfortable inside, and offers some useful driving aids and safety electronics. The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is sensible and spacious; but if driving fun is a priority, you can do better.
