The Honda CR-V won Best SUV for the 2019 Edmunds Editors' Choice Awards because it's the most well-rounded and thoughtfully designed SUV on the road today. The CR-V has plenty of space for cargo and rear passengers. It also has more clever storage solutions than an Ikea catalog.

Edmunds' experts test over 200 vehicles per year on our test track. We also test them in the real world using a loop of city streets, freeways and winding canyons. The data we gather and the analysis we perform results in our ratings. They're based on 30-plus scores that cover performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility and value.

For the 2019 Edmunds Editors' Choice awards, we've distilled these rankings to the most relevant vehicle categories for most shoppers: sedan, luxury sedan, SUV, luxury SUV, truck, electric vehicle, and sports car.

Each winner has undergone rigorous scrutiny by the Edmunds editorial team to ensure it's the best vehicle for shoppers in its respective category.

Outside of providing a vehicle to facilitate the review, Edmunds determined these awards without manufacturer involvement.

      Wow. Edmunds can't be taken seriously if recommending a car with a very well known garbage 1.5L engine with oil dilution problems and cabin heat not working in cold climates...the kinda climates you might live in if you wanted an AWD vehicle.

      Strange. I've been looking / reading reviews of the various brands and Honda seems to be lacking. Maybe they skew more on safety features and mileage. I was at a Mazda dealership and the CX 5 seems to pack more punch and way more stylish.

      The MAZDA CX5 SHOULD, THAT has a 6 speed auto. The INTERIOR is LIKE HOLLYWOOD but, THE HONDA IS BETTER ON THE GAS because of the CVT.

      I'm not a fan boy by any means this is the first honda I've ever owned, partly because my wife is Japanese. But I have owned other cvt transmission cars and this one is by far the best. It's actually more responsive than the regular geared transmissions I've owned and currently own. And it's not an SUV, the awd does not work properly, it has a confused suspension, it can't decide whether it wants to be stiff or long and wobbly. But other than that, it is a pretty decent family car.

      +Clarence White Checking your oil regularly is just something you should do regardless of what car you drive. I check mine roughly once or twice a week. Best of luck to you man and I hope you enjoy your car.

      +Clarence White My advice to you is just to keep a check on your oil LEVEL. Just so you know if the oil smells gassy but the level is normal than you're probably ok, apparently that's normal for a GDI engine. I like the new RAV4 as well, especially the new Hybrid.

      I agree. I have the 2019 HONDA CRV-EX AWD and, i HOPE the OIL DILLUTION PROBLEM that the 2017-18 has is RESOLVED FOR 2019. The 2019 TOYATA RAV 4 GETS THE NOD FROM ME in TERMS of INTERIOR/EXTERIOR as well AS THE 8SPEED AUTOMATIC. The CVT is O.K but, IT WONT BEAT THE 8 AUTO.

      People are having problems with the 1.5-liter engines for both the 2017 and 2018 model years. Not sure if the 2019 model year is affected as of yet, but it would concern me enough not to buy one until Honda has fully fixed the issue. Also, they hadn't been very forthcoming in dealing with it here in America - very puzzling, being that it's no secret there are issues with oil dilution for those engines.

      Christopher Nasca my wife and I test drove the Crv and agreed the handling was less than satisfying, the vibration and buzz was obnoxious and after owning a Forester we didn’t like the screaming transmission. At the cost of more fuel and more luxury we got a CX5.

      Most vehicles are about equal in terms of quality and reliability these days. Honda has had some issues in recent years, however much of the negative press is due to their prominence in the marketplace making what issues they have magnified.

      Christopher Nasca The Odyssey has transmission issues, many civics’ and accords have peeling clear coat issues, type r has stick issues and the 1.5 liter is a problem. Yet, these so-called expert reviewers rank them as the best. It’s shameful.

      +Car Enthusiast agree, also their fit and finish is junk. I got rid of my civic hatchback after 19 months because of rattles (yes more than one) two dealers couldn't fix. After being in multiple loaners CRV, Civic, Accord I realized it wasn't just my car
