The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Honda CR-V is neither sporty nor particularly quick, but fuel efficiency is excellent and it prioritizes interior space, earnest practicality, and cleverly chosen features in a way that buyers appear to crave. The 2016 Mazda CX-5 is one of the more athletic crossovers; high gas mileage and high style just add to the value.
