It's a size-conscious SUV. Good-sized cargo area with enough room for small furniture, passenger areas are compact without feeling cramped. Driver's seat has easy access to all controls.
One strange thing about my car is that the mileage has been dropping like a rock since I got it. I make a lot of trips on the same 180-mile stretch of highway. When I first got the car I was averaging 30-32 MPG on that route, now I'm getting about 22 MPG 5 months later. No idea what's causing it.
I've had several cars over the years, and this car is my ABSOLUTE favorite! I had purchased a brand new 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander sport, and while I loved the car at first, it really lacked a lot of the features, sophistication, and handling that I love about my CRV. I'm a woman who is 5'11", and I prefer having a crossover at the very least, because I don't like rolling out of the car. I love the height of the seats, the room in the back seats and the HUGE amount of cargo space in the back. As a 4-cylinder, it really picks up and handles really well. I would love having a V6, but I love that this car not only conserves fuel naturally, but the ECO feature allows me to be fuel efficient and fill up my tank every couple weeks!
Loving This Car!

After I got used to the handling (I downsized from a van, a bit heavier than the CR-V), I'm in love. Great handling on curves, great gas mileage, comfortable seating and leg room is wonderful. There's even decent leg room in the back seat for an average height person with a tall driver. I can see me owning this for a long, long time.
Many drivers who want a best crossover seek out one of the popular vehicles on this list. Why the big deal about a crossover SUV? It’s the solid mix of roomy interior and a smaller size that fits in plenty of parking spaces.
