Honda feeds the CRaVing for an efficient small SUVby Thom Blackett
Honda CR-V: Photo Gallery -- Vancouver, BC. – During times of corporate layoff and expensive divorces, the importance of the almighty dollar reigns supreme, as untracked expendable income is replaced by serious contemplation over the necessity of buying name-brand milk. Drinking water suddenly springs from the kitchen tap rather than the French Alps.

Intimidating 400-horsepower monster SUVs and pricey hybrid crossovers make questionable sense when Honda is offering an all-new CR-V with room for five passengers and their gear, optional four-wheel-drive traction, and real-world fuel economy into the low 30s, all for less than $30,000 fully loaded.
