Performance

Winner: 2017 Honda CR-V (Details Below)

Buyers have two engines to choose from to power the Honda CR-V, and both offer a similar driving experience, are mated to a CVT, and achieve good fuel economy. Drivers looking to pack more of punch off the line will want to stick with the base 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine over the turbocharged 190-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which suffers from a fair amount of turbo lag.

Each grade of the Toyota RAV4 comes with a 176-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The throttle can be slow to respond and the SUV’s transmission often struggles to find the right gear when traveling uphill.

Toyota offers a hybrid model of the RAV4. You can learn more about the RAV4 Hybrid here.
