The Honda Accord has long been a favorite of the editors at Car and Driver, being named to their 10Best Cars list a record 30 times. This year Car and Driver put together a 10Best Trucks and SUVs list, and the all-new Honda CR-V and Honda Ridgeline were named as the best vehicles in their segments. All of the entrants were judged on ride, handling, safety, technology, comfort, practicality and fuel efficiency.
As America’s bestselling SUV, millions are already aware of why the Honda CR-V is an excellent choice when looking for a compact SUV. Car and Driver said the newest CR-V “is the compact crossover SUV distilled to its near-perfect essence, blending engaging dynamics, master-class interior practicality, and a pleasing demeanor into a deeply satisfying whole.”
The 2017 Honda CR-V was completely redesigned this year, with all-new modern styling, a new available 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, an upgraded interior and plenty of storage space. All-wheel drive is available, and EPA fuel economy ratings are up to 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
Honda’s second-generation Ridgeline debuted this year, and was immediately recognized for its winning combination of capability, efficiency, driving dynamics and comfort. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline uses exclusive unit-body construction for superior ride and handling and less noise, vibration and harshness without having to sacrifice payload and towing capacity.
The Ridgeline offers many class-exclusive features, including an in-bed trunk, truck-bed audio and a dual-action tailgate. The Ridgeline also has excellent performance thanks to its powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine, and is rated at an impressive 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for front-wheel drive models.
