The three years of complimentary planned maintenance provided by Volvo are a great bonus, and the warranty coverage is reasonable.

With the second and third rows folded flat into their built-in alcoves in the Pacifica's floor, the cargo space is extremely generous.

Towing capacity for the Honda CR-V is only 1,500 pounds, which places it near the bottom of the class for compact crossovers.

CR-acceleration Vs may disappoint street racer parents. They'll also love the smooth ride, responsive steering, and strong brakes.

Commutes of any length, whether long or short, are made more bearable by the CR-composed V's and the compliant ride.

Talking about FUEL - Two economical engines are offered for the CR-V, each of which uses less petrol than the other.

All-wheel-drive variants get 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, while the front-drive, gas-only model gets 28 city and 34 highway mpg ratings.

Elegant and spacious, CR-interior V's creates a relaxing ambiance. High-quality materials and a classic arrangement give a modern aesthetic.

In the Touring model we examined, a stylish blend of faux-wood elements, chromed plastic, and brushed-satin finishes looked especially premium.

The annoying infotainment system in the Honda presentation detracts from an otherwise excellent performance.

All other variants have a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM; navigation and a nine-speaker audio system are available.

Each CR-V is covered by limited and powertrain warranties from Honda that are competitive with those from the majority of other producers.
