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. As long as cargo space isn’t your main reason for buying a compact crossover, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an excellent, fun-to-drive choice. What it lacks in personality, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan crossover SUV makes up for with its clean approach.
