I tried the competition, Honda CRV LX is the top dog, drives like a V6. The CRV has it all comfort, great power, great gas mileage city and highway ave 28 to 30 on a trip. Cruise control is the key. My wife finds it easy to drive. Resell value is another thing in its favor. I recommend it highly!
Storage room is great!
Larger gas tank, inside temp gauge would be nice, mine has the outside gauge. A rubber mat for the rear cargo area.
