“When it comes to reliability and useful interior space, it’s tough to beat the 2015 Honda CR-V,” U.S. News & World Report editors said of America’s best-selling SUV, which beat out fellow compact SUV finalists that include the GMC Terrain and Ford Escape. “Reviewers love its composed handling and durable interior; families will love features like its rearview camera, keyless entry and power liftgate.”

The publication praised the Odyssey for its “comfortable ride, remarkable agility and feature-filled cabin.”
