2021 Honda CR-V Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

If the DOT hadn’t invented double-yellow lines, the Honda CR-V would have been a great marker for the middle of the road.

Honda fits the CR-V crossover with either a 1.5-liter turbo-4, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and front- or all-wheel drive—or a hybridized version, with electric motor and battery grafted on to a non-turbo-4. In either case, mild-mannered acceleration and pleasantly invisible handling traits give it a score of 5 out of 10 for performance. 

Let’s talk about gas first. The standard CR-V’s turbo-4 punches out 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque, and applies it through a belt-driven

2021 Toyota Land Cruiser Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is a complete-time four-wheel-travel icon with a handful of luxury touches.

The Toyota Land Cruiser SUV is an icon. Its go-any place, haul-everything mindset is a immediate hyperlink amongst utility motor vehicles from the past and modern luxury SUVs of currently. It is nostalgic and beneficial in all the proper strategies, but it’s not as comfortable as models that have embraced luxury extra than utility. 

Our five. TCC Rating is completely common for everything but the 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is capable, rugged, and enviable. It is just far too thirsty and far too highly-priced.

2021 Honda HR-V Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

Pert and perky, the 2021 Honda HR-V is no lumbering SUV; it’s hardly a crossover, though its front-wheel-drive hatchback essentials can be fortified with all-wheel drive.

The 2021 HR-V carries over from the year before unchanged, but it’s alone at the bottom of the Honda lineup now that the Fit has been canceled.

With the HR-V, Honda has a vehicle that’s more user-friendly in cities, even if it’s less fuel-efficient than the bigger CR-V. Its ace in the hole: a “Magic Seat” that flips and folds to expand cargo space along a couple of different vectors.

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan (VW) Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan plays the numbers.

Its 185.1-inch body is larger than most of its compact crossover competitors. It has a cavernous, 37.6 cubic foot cargo hold and room for up to seven in its conservatively styled confines.

It costs less than $27,000 to start and all-wheel drive, which VW calls “4Motion,” is available on every trim. The digit that matters? The 2021 Tiguan gets a 6.2 TCC Rating. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

That’s mostly good for the Tiguan, which faces stiff competition from the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and the future. Next

2021 Honda Passport Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2021 Honda Passport punches a ticket for drivers who think the three-row Pilot’s for big families and the smaller CR-V’s for couch potatoes.

With the Passport, Honda trims the Pilot’s fat and delivers a five-seat, two-row crossover SUV that’s not quite hardcore, but picks up its off-road game to square off against cars like the Subaru Outback and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Familiar, solid, smooth, and spacious, the 2021 Pilot gets a TCC Rating of 6.0, dragged down somewhat by sparse features on the base Sport. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

Cadillac Super Cruise needs subscription after free trial period

Not long ago, Motor Trend broke the news that Cadillac’s Super Cruise is only free for the first three years, after which the Level 2 autonomy system moves to subscription pricing. MT‘s report came on the eve of 2018-model-year Cadillac CT6 buyers being asked whether they wished to retain access to their Super Cruise. A few days after that report, Cadillac said it would give those first-year buyers of the technology — “the helpful adopters” — another free year, so they’ll need to make a decision in August 2021 along with the 2019MY CT6 buyers. After a bit of
