CR-V Named KBB Best Buy for Being “The Benchmark for Small SUVs”

The 2015 Honda CR-V is catching people’s attention not only because it’s Motor Trend’s Sport/Utility of the Year, but because the new model year has some considerable updates. These updates include better gas mileage, more engine torque, and safety enhancements like Honda Sensing in the touring trim. Due to these enhancements, the 2015 CR-V was named a 2015 KBB Best Buy Award winner in the small SUV category.

“The CR-V’s effortless driving manners, roomy interior, and reputation for reliability and efficiency have paved the way for best-seller status in a segment that is far more crowded today than when the original version debuted nearly two decades ago,” the KBB editors said of the CR-V.
