The current 2012 model of the popular automobile has won the Ideal Vehicle Award from AutoPacific in the Mid-Size Crossover SUV category, thanks to a national survey that showed that CR-V drivers greatly enjoyed the vehicle's lighting, roominess, size, and wheels, among other features.
Cars.com named the CR-V the winner of their Compact SUV Shootout, where six different SUVs were tested over the course of three days. Their fuel economy, storage, features, and comfort levels were put to the test, and the CR-V won out in the end.
Edmunds.com, one of the leading sources of all automotive knowledge has given the CR-V their Best Retained Value award in the categories of Non-Luxury Brands and SUVs in the $25k-$35k range, recognizing how well Honda vehicles keep their value over time.
Edmunds isn't the only one extolling the value of the CR-V; Kelley Blue Book named it the Best Resale Value for 2012. In addition, they also declared the CR-V as one of their Top 10 Best Family Cars for 2012.
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration awarded the CR-V with their highest rating, five stars, for their overall vehicle safety, which is based upon results from frontal and side collisions as well as rollover safety.
Honda itself has won a prestigious award as well: the Union of Concerned Scientists named the automaker the Greenest Automaker. This award showcases Honda's commitment to the environment, striving to make environmentally friendly vehicles using green auto making processes. This is an award that Honda has won for five years running now.
