1. 2013 Honda (HMC) CR-V
This has become the go-to family crossover in the United States and a perennial Top 10 best-seller not only for its price, but what that price affords.
After the popular crossover's 2012 overhaul, it's only made that transition easier by adding a leather interior, heated seats and rearview windows and navigation system with controls mounted on the steering wheel. It's also trimmed fuel efficiency to a combined 27 miles per gallon while leaving all 70 cubic feet of cargo space untouched.There's a reason it's ubiquitous in front of schools, soccer matches and your friends' buildings in the city just before they opt to move to the suburbs: It just screams family the way station wagons, minivans and bigger SUVs did. Don't worry: Future generations of parent drivers in denial will grow to resent it, too. -- Written by Jason Notte in Portland, Ore. >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Jason Notte. >To follow the writer on Twitter, go to http://twitter.com/notteham. >To submit a news tip, send an email to: email@example.com.
