The Honda CR-V Is a Great Choice, but Not the Only Choice

It’s not at all strange to be a big fan of the 2018 Honda CR-V (pictured above). We named it the Best Compact SUV for the Money and for Families this year. Its recent refresh carried over for this model year, and it still has one of the nicest interior designs in the class. You’ll find all the latest infotainment and safety tech, especially once you venture above the base trim.

But the CR-V has been around for decades. Maybe you’ve had multiples and you’re wondering if it’s time to change. Or maybe your life has changed and the CR-V isn’t cutting it anymore. Whatever your reasons for looking over the fence at greener automotive pastures, we’ve got options.

We of course look at the CR-V’s close competitors, like the Subaru Outback and Toyota RAV4. But we also look at more upscale cousins, such as the Acura RDX. If you’re shopping minivans for the extra seats, the Honda Odyssey allows you to keep it in the family without sacrificing familiarity.

We took a look at price and overall score for each of these alternatives, as well as features that are likely relevant if you haven’t settled on the CR-V for sure.

As new information becomes available, we update our reviews, so the scores and rankings mentioned here might be different from what you find in the latest reviews.
