Needless to say, what we look for when it comes to choosing a vehicle is quality. After all, we are trying to get the most out of our money, right? Here's the deal, no matter how much we look, there would basically be no vehicle that will score a perfect 10 in this aspect as they will all have some flaw in one way or another. Therefore, we look for the one that offers the highest overall quality and that happens to be the 2017 Honda CR-V when it comes to the compact SUV segment. According to US News, the 2017 Honda CR-V scores an awesome 9.0 in overall quality.

The 2017 Honda CR-V competes against the likes of Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage and a whole lot of other rivals. Each of the other competitors has its own strengths and weaknesses but at the end of the day, it all boils down to which of them has everything at the lowest price and that happens to be the 2017 Honda CR-V with a price tag of $24,045 to around $34,000.

2017 Honda CR-V: Fully Packed Compact

The CR-V actually means "comfortable runabout vehicle" and this is actually very true in every sense of the word. The 2017 Honda CR-V offers one of the best interiors in the industry along with plenty of space for the passengers and their cargo. It also has a great rating in terms of fuel economy and it is packed with tech features and infotainment. The 2017 Honda CR-V is basically the best in its class when it comes to these points of consideration and it should therefore come as no surprise that it has the "Best Compact SUV for the Money" title.

2017 Honda CR-V: It Also Has Its Imperfection

While the 2017 Honda CR-V puts up one heck of a fight in order to become the Best Compact SUV for the Money, we also cannot overlook the fact that the CR-V is by no means perfect, as it also has its flaws. According to Torque News, the 2017 Honda CR-V lacks a bit of power. It is a great SUV to drive in the city but driving it on the highway is another story. This is not to say that the 2017 Honda CR-V is a slow compact SUV, but it isn't the fastest horse around either. This is why the automaker makes it a point that the 2017 Honda CR-V excels in all other aspects and in doing so, the CR-V continues to be the best in its segment. That being said, if you want a compact SUV that would bring you the most out of your hard-earned money, the 2017 Honda CR-V is the ride for you.
