Nearly perfect MINI SUV except power

Vehicle
2001 Honda CR-V LX 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
Review
It is a Honda, and as expected, its reliability, build quality, and comfort make a nearly perfect balance. As far as a mini SUVs are concerned, you can't beat CR-V's interior space. One thing that makes me say that it is only a 'near' perfect about this car is its fuel economy and power. My 2001 CR- V LX is slower than my Mom's 11-year old 1991 Accord EX on uphill freeways. I constantly get about 22.5 MPG (combined) which is worse than my other car (1999 Nissan Maxima with automatic transmission). How does Honda explain that a 4-cyl 2.0 liter engine gets poorer MPG than a 6-cyl 3.0 liter engine?
Favorite Features
Overall design is sooooooo cute. Steering-wheel-mounted transmission knob. Spacious interior. Fold-away cup holders in the center.
Suggested Improvements
No power on uphill freeway. Poor gas mileage compared to its performance. Grade-logic transmission is frustrating when it will not upshift even at 3,500 RPM on a not-so-uphill street.
