Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

We're torn between the EX and the EX-L. The latter has desirable luxury features such as leather upholstery, a programmable power liftgate and a premium audio system. We liked it enough to buy one for our long-term test fleet.

PROS
Turbocharged engine delivers a rare combination of thrift and zest
Roomy interior with cavernous cargo capacity for this class
Rides comfortably yet handles corners athletically
Plentiful and thoughtful storage areas

CONS
Optional navigation system isn't as reliable as expected
Base LX's engine is weaker and thirstier than the turbo
Touchscreen can be finicky to use and lacks a separate tuning knob

The 2018 Honda CR-V ranked #1 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Honda CR-V has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Cavernous cargo area
High-quality cabin
Supple ride
Good crash test scores

Cons
Few standard features

By:

The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice.

Pros
Does nearly everything right
Exceptionally roomy interior
Good value
Lots of safety gear
Upscale feel

Cons
Odd styling
LX lacks important features
Hardly fun to drive
No high-performance version, if that matters

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2017, every RX 450h comes standard with forward collision warning and mitigation, lane keeping assistance, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control. You can also now get a front-wheel-drive F Sport model.

Pros
Impeccably crafted and attractively designed cabin
Excellent fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Supremely quiet
Appealing ride and handling balance with F Sport

Cons
Gas savings unlikely to ever pay back the price premium
Below-average cargo capacity
Optional tech interface is distracting to use
Relatively slow acceleration

By:

The 2017 Lexus RX Hybrid ranks 4 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Lexus RX 450h is a midsize SUV that delivers the luxury you expect from Lexus while also providing solid performance and excellent fuel economy. However, its small cargo area detracts from its utility.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Comfortable, spacious seats

Cons
Frustrating upgraded infotainment system
Small cargo space
