HONDA CR-V

Compact SUV, over $23,000

Honda CR-V

A strong showing by the Honda CR-V brought the title back to this former winner. Although the Mercury Mariner had the best value when we measured cost-of-ownership based on 20,000 annual miles, the CR-V was the best value at both 10,000 miles per year and 15,000 miles per year, earning the right to again be called Vincentric’s Best Value in America™.
