I was looking at the Honda CR-V but felt it was too plain for my tastes. I really liked the options available on the Outlander Sport and the body styling is much more aggressive than the CR-V. The car drives comfortably which helps make an hour long commute quite bearable.
Just a fun, fast car to drive. Lots of power and a comfortable ride when cruising. Stiff, responsive steering, makes it feel like a race car. When shifting the 6 speed manual trans, she just keeps giving more and more power. Before you know it, you're cruising at 80 mph. :D
nice basic car

This car has a CVT. It will drift back, while in drive, on an incline. Acceleration from standing is delayed. Rapid highway acceleration can seem like being in a slingshot. Sometimes the automatic "shifting" feels unusual/out of synch.
I would NOT recommend any CVT equipped vehicle for stop/go commuting or around town. For highway travel out of traffic, it's good. Personally, I'll stick to fully geared transmissions.
