6: Honda CR-V
Although the Geo Tracker was the first compact SUV, the Honda CR-V did it right. Honda took all the elements of a great SUV and combined it into an attractive and affordable package. The first generation of the CR-V had refined road manners, a luxurious interior when you got the upmarket model, and a decent amount of versatility (via Car Gurus).
Honda didn’t rely on gimmicks such as a removable top to sell the CR-V and it worked. The model became one of the best selling Hondas of all-time. With timeless styling and a comfortable interior, you can’t go wrong with a CR-V. Reliability is also the top reason people go for the CR-V on the used market. There is no doubt that the original CR-V was way ahead of its time.
