The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.4

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 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a practical crossover with confident handling. Just know that driving enjoyment is not its strong point.
