The 2015 Honda CR-V, America’s most popular SUV for the past decade (automobiles.honda.com/cr-v/), has won the top spot in the Cars.com/USA TODAY/”MotorWeek” Compact SUV Challenge (cars.com/news), with a panel of experts and customers choosing CR-V over six competing models.

“The compact SUV segment is among the most competitive in the industry, and we took nothing for granted with the 2015 CR-V,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “The CR-V has been America’s top SUV choice for many years now, and it’s great to see that real-world customers and experts from Cars.com, USA TODAY and “MotorWeek” agree that the 2015 CR-V continues to live up to their high expectations.”

In winning the competition, the CR-V earned praise for its rewarding driving experience, generous interior room and family-friendly features. The 2015 CR-V features upgrades to styling, performance, fuel efficiency and family-friendly technology.

“The 2015 Honda CR-V came out on top because it provided the best blend of good interior room, excellent visibility and a surprisingly rewarding driving experience,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “The CR-V was also packed with great family-friendly features like easy-to-fold seats, a low load floor, rear air vents and much more.”

The Challenge pitted seven of the most popular compact SUVs against each other in a series of expert and consumer testing, which determined that the 2015 CR-V was overall best-in-class. To qualify for the competition, vehicles had to cost less than $28,000 and achieve a combined city/highway EPA fuel economy rating of at least 26 mpg.

2012 Honda Civic Gets Praise from MotorWeek

Much has been written about why the 2012 Honda Civic was redesigned so quickly. Like this blogger, some say it was because it was “so bad.” However, bloggers like him seem to miss the point that it was still the best selling compact car in the U.S. last year. And usually consumers know the difference between bad and good cars.

That being said, expectations were set high for the 2012 Honda Civic and some critics were disappointed. However, the folks at MotorWeek were not as evidenced by this video calling the 2012 Honda Civic energy smart and stating it is “excellence evolved.”

This critic notes that while the actual size of the car was smaller, the interior of the 2012 Honda Civic actually grew, among other positive features, including incredible gas mileage that the Honda Civic is renowned for. While the 2013 Honda Civic is an incredible redesign, the 2012 Honda Civic is still available at many Honda dealerships and, because of that quick redesign, available at an even better value.

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to see if there are any great deals on the 2012 Honda Civic…new or used!
