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. 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. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is a roomy crossover SUV, but it's now a nine-year-old design with marginal safety scores and only average handling.
