USA Today Voted CR-V Best SUV

2012 Honda CR-V

USA Today says choose the Honda CR-V if you’re in the market for an SUV.

In a test of all the SUVs under $25,000m USA Today says the CR-V it the top choice. Six SUVS were tested over three days in Chicago and included a 200-mile gas mileage test, a day of testing by a family of four in the market for a compact SUV, and a test that included cargo and storage space, technology and the driving dynamics, including ride, noise, handling, acceleration and braking.

CR-V scored 809 out of 1,000 points. The judges liked the features.

“Even just with the standard tech features, it shined. The Bluetooth and USB integration work well with a vibrant color display that’s easy to read. The stereo was one of my favorites,”  David Thomas, managing editor, says.

“Loaded with convenience features standard,” says Jennifer Geiger, an editor at “Three of my favorites: the always-helpful backup camera; the cavernous center console box; and the easy fold-flat seats with cargo-area release handles.”

“Parents will love the roomy rear for child seats, low door sill and rear doors that open a full 90 degrees. Come to think of it, aging Boomers may like those even more,”  Fred Meier, automotive editor for USA TODAY says.

“One of the most well-rounded in this segment. It’s a comfortable cruiser with a solid powertrain, a compliant ride and plenty of features,” says Geiger. “The brand’s history of strong reliability helps tip the scale.”


It’s no wonder that Honda keeps brining home more awards.

Congrats again to everyone at Waikem Honda.
