TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Honda CR-V wins hundreds of thousands of wallets each year and it’s no surprise: it’s spacious, comfortable, efficient, and quiet. The 2022 Kia Sportage ushers in another year of good looks and great standard features in base models, while fuel economy in pricey turbo editions give us pause.
