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. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
