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. 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. There's a RAV4 for just about everyone, and while we applaud Toyota for adding more safety technology for 2017, the competition is worth a good look, too.
