    The CR-V is already pretty competitive when it comes to fuel economy. The new engine (which I am assuming is DI) and CVT transmission should put it at the top of the small suv class.

    I’d save money a little longer and get the Highlander with a proper 6 cylinder and real 6 speed auto transmission, as well as reliable port injection. The 4 cylinder CVT combo, while it may be ok for 0 to 60, is worthless merging into high speed traffic when you find your hole (40 to 70). The CVT takes too long to change gearing from high to low. I don’t understand people. They go out and buy a $30,000 car and then are worried about 2 or 3 mpg. If you’ve got that kind of doe you can afford the gas.

    I have owned many cars, stick-shift, automatic, and now 2013 Accord with CVT.
    I promise you there is no delay like you mention – it is very quick to jump the RPMS and accelerate.

    I hope Honda fixes the CR-V’s front structure so the 2015 model performs better in the IIHS Small Offset Crash Test.
