Honda’s best-selling vehicle is no longer the Civic or Accord. It’s this, the 2018 CR-V compact SUV. So far this year Honda has sold more CR-Vs than any other vehicle, and the automaker is poised to sell more CR-Vs than it ever has before. But robust sales are nothing new for the CR-V. For quite some time, this award-winner has been one of the best-selling SUVs in its crowded and very competitive class, and Honda says it is America’s best-selling SUV over the last 20 years.
Fully redesigned just last year, and now in its fifth generation, the 2018 Honda CR-V is also one of our favorite vehicles in the compact SUV segment. Larger than the Honda HR-V but smaller than the popular Pilot, the family-friendly CR-V is attractive, fuel efficient, and safe, with high overall safety ratings and a long list of high-tech driver aids. It competes with a long list of popular rivals, including the Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, Nissan Rogue, and Mazda CX-5.
