The 2014 Honda CR-V is the highest scoring Mid-Size Crossover SUV in AutoPacific’s 2014 Ideal Vehicle Award research. The CR-V designers, planners and engineers clearly understood their target buyer and developed a vehicle that meets their requirements. The 2014 Honda CR-V beat out an impressive group of mid-size crossovers including the Subaru Forester, Jeep Cherokee, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, and the Toyota RAV4.
2014 Honda CR-V owners are satisfied with their vehicle and do not want a great deal of change. Of the fifteen categories in the Ideal Vehicle questionnaire, the 2014 CR-V led in four categories and was within three percentage points of three other categories.
The top five highest ratings by CR-V owners are: same exterior size, same wheels, same tires, same ease of getting in and out of the vehicle, and the same exterior styling,
No vehicle is perfect and CR-V owners did want several things changed. Owners would like more power and acceleration, better driver seat visibility, and a more relaxed drivers seat. CR-V owners would also like a new information and entertainment system. Seventeen percent would like a more advanced system and eighteen percent would like a simpler system.
