The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Honda CR-V has its priorities in the right place, with lots of space and features—but performance takes a back seat. While it's not as fun as other VWs and the old design leaves it behind in terms of safety, technology and fuel economy, the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan delivers on most of the important small-crossover promises.
