The Car Connection's Take

7.0
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 Toyota RAV4 has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well.
