2002 Honda CR-V
Since the CR-Vs introduction in 1997, Honda has dominated the compact SUV segment. For the last five years many manufacturers have followed with their own version such as the Ford Escape, Mazda Tribute, Subaru Forester, Jeep Liberty, Toyota RAV-4,Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan XTerra. The first generationCR-V proved reliable and appealing but was aging vis-a-vis the newcomers. The 2002 version has what it takes to regain sales dominance.
