TCC’s Bottom Line

It's hard to imagine a compact crossover better aligned with the needs of most buyers than the 2017 Honda CR-V. The 2017 Hyundai Tucson doesn't live on the cutting edge, but it's an attractive, economical crossover SUV that's worth a spot on your shopping list. One of the best small SUVs, the 2017 Subaru Forester is a good value, with remarkable interior volume, thrifty fuel economy, and top safety scores.
