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 Mitsubishi Outlander takes the rational road, filling in more functional details than flair, and it adds up to high-value family appeal. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is a competent crossover utility with a new Hybrid model this year, updated safety systems, and lots of interior space.
