I purchased the Honda CR-V after I researched other SUV's and test drove them. The Honda CR-V has the BEST pickup and it turns-on-a-dime! The drive is so smooth. I use the CR-V everyday for my job and home life. Love the backup camera and comfort level. Lots of seat adjustments and since I'm short this is a BIG plus for me. My only gripe is that the back window doesn't open and the hatch door is so high and difficult to pull down. I wish it had a strap!
