The Car Connection's Take

7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice. The 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport still does what good crossover SUVs do best: it delivers flexible space, decent performance, and great value.
