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 2014 Toyota RAV4 is sensible and spacious; but if driving fun is a priority, you can do better. The 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan offers just about everything a compact crossover should, though its a little conservative in style and feel.
