The Honda CR-V stacks up well against other compact crossovers in the most competitive and popular class in the industry.

The Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, and Hyundai Tucson are sold in gas and hybrid models, like the CR-V, but they’re also offered as plug-in hybrids with up to 42 miles of electric range.

The redesigned Rogue presents a well-equipped value, while the refreshed Forester advances safety features, standard all-wheel drive, and a more off-road ready Wilderness trim for 2022.
