CarReview's Best SUV and Crossover Choices of 2010

2010 Honda CR-V
Honda CR-V EX FWD: The CR-V is defined by the quiet competence Hondas are known for. The ride and steering are Honda right and Civic sporty. Build quality and materials are at the top of its class. Some might suggest that the original CR-V defined the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) niche. It offered exceptional packaging and class leading drivetrain efficiency at an extremely attractive price point. Compared to the 2010 model the 2011 CR-V offers a slight increase in torque and other minor updates, but most importantly, it keeps that original formula intact.

Though it may not be apparent in cocktail conversation, CR-V owners are passionate about their cars. They immediately shake their head when asked if they would consider one of the new competitors or a traditional rival. They will reply, ‘I like my CR-V just fine. Right size, no troubles. Wouldn’t trade it for anything.’ Enough said.

The crossovers listed below represent the best for 2010. Click on any of the names below to learn why they are winners.

    A few crossovers that nearly made onto our top 5 list was the VW Tiguan, Ford Escape, and Subaru Outback.

    One crossover that almost made the top 5, but got dropped was the new 2011 Kia Sportage. The exterior and interior design was done really well, and it is a great value with all the goodies that are included as standard equipment. One thing we hated was the strong on-center feel of the electric steering and the stiff suspension setup.

    The Q5 *is* a no brainer. Great review and great vehicle.

    I’ve driven a few of these cars and the Ford Flex is the standout here.

    It is just so unexpected with its power, economy an handling. It drives like a touring car. Interior is awesome btw!

    I love the styling but understand it can be polarizing. It’s kind of square and ganster looking. Do you folks like the styling? Do women like it? Hmmm…
