Honda CR-V
Still a favorite, no matter how you take it!

Despite the general opinion about CVT transmissions, the one installed in the CR-V works fine with that engine. And the look isn't bad either!

Nissan Rogue SL AWD
Subaru Outback
I couldn't believe how much more capable the Outback is off-road compared to its more traditional competition.

This car impressed me with its fine styling inside and out. It also was the only car in its class to ace the roller test on the off-road course.

A surprising off road performer.
