I test drove most similar sized models so that I could have my own comparison information. I chose the CRV because of the value for my dollar. I have been thrilled with the performance so far (6 weeks). I live in outer suburbs, so gas mileage was an important factor and so far I am averaging around 21 MPG in town. I have not taken it cross-country but am sure that I will be happy with those results too.
Overall comfort, mpg, sunroof and radio.
I have resolved the lack of a change tray by converting one of the cubbies in to a change catcher.
