TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda CR-V hits right at the heart of many buyers’ needs: comfortable, spacious, quiet, and efficient. The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 covers more bases this year with smartphone compatibility and tough-looking off-road trims.
