http://www.autobytel.com/honda/cr-v/2012/?id=32972 For years the Honda CR-V has been one of the most consistent top selling crossovers on the market. And for 2012; the CR-V got a complete makeover. The exterior of the CR-V features a much more sculpted and rounded body. Overall it is a much more aesthetically pleasing package. The 2012 Honda CR-V is powered by a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque. The small engine size helps the CR-V to obtain great fuel economy ratings at 23 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.
On the inside the 2012 Honda CR-V seems much bigger with more room that you would expect. The rear seats fold down in a number of different configurations. The leather seats are well cushioned with good bolstering. Honda is known for driver ergonomics and everything on the CR-V is well within reach. The dash is clean and easy to read. Overall the interior is a nice place to spend time.
The CR-V drives smooth and handles well. For years the Honda CR-V has been a class leader and with the newly redesigned model, it should continue to set the bar in the small crossover SUV segment. The base model 2012 Honda CR-Z retails for $22,295.

2012 Nissan Murano Test Drive & Crossover SUV Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/murano/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Nissan
Murano Crossover SUV looks sharp and more refined than previous models. The
Murano has a base price of $29,290. There is only one engine choice
available but that's ok because Nissan venerable VQ35DE engine lives under
the hood. This 3.5 liter V-6 makes 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is good for a crossover at 18 MPG in the city and 24
MPG on the highway.
On the inside Nissan has really stepped up the game on the Murano. Heck if
the Nissan badges weren't there you could mistake the interior for an
Infiniti. The great navigation and the comfortable leather seats work well
to create an inviting environment for the drive and passengers. The 2012
Nissan Murano is based on the Nissan D platform so this crossover SUV
handles and drives more like the Maxima. If you are shopping for a
mid-sized crossover SUV then the 2012 Nissan Murano should definitely be

2013 Toyota RAV4 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/rav4/?id=32972 The Toyota RAV4 first hit
the shores here in the U.S. back in 1996. This little crossover SUV along
with the Honda CR-V is responsible for starting the crossover craze. Today
there are almost 50 different crossover models for sale here in America.
The 4th generation RAV4 is an updated model that gets a complete interior
and exterior redesign as well as an updated powerplant. The 2013 Toyota
RAV4 comes in 3 trim levels: the LE, the XLE, and the top of the line
Limited. The base price on the LE trim is just under $25k
The RAV4 vs. CR-V battle reminds us of the old Ford vs. Chevy battles
during the muscle car era. Over the past few years the Honda CR-V has
really taken over the segment, gaining the most market share. But the
all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4 aims to get back on top of the crossover sales
charts. There are a ton of new features and lots of changes that make the
4th generation RAV4 the best ever.
The past generation Toyota RAV4 came with a choice of a 4-cylinder or V-6
engine. Well the larger V-6 has been dropped and now the only engine
offered is an efficient 2.5 liter 4-cylinder making 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of
torque. What that means is coupled with the standard 6-speed automatic
transmission and FWD; the 2013 Toyota RAV4 will return 31 MPG on the
highway. You can also opt for an AWD version as a $1400 option.
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned outside and in. It all
starts with a brand new front end consisting of a bold grille and
headlights that look similar to the new Camry. This generation RAV4 was
made more aerodynamic and the result is better fuel economy. If you are
buying a crossover chances are you may be driving around small children.
The new Toyota RAV4 comes with a segment leading 8 standard air bags.
Toyota engineers also worked the interior design to allow for the most
cargo volume in the segment.
The interior of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is completely new with some great new
features including an Acoustic Windshield which helps reduce wind noise.
From the driver's perspective, the new instrumentation is pleasing while
being easy to use. After the 7 year run of the previous model, Toyota has
really stepped it up inside the cabin.
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 sits nicely on the road and you will like the way it
drives on the highway. This is an economy crossover SUV after all so you
shouldn't expect the RAV4 to ride like a luxury car. Bottom line is that
Toyota did a great job on the newly redesigned RAV4. They really hit the
mark on this one and it's a huge improvement over the outgoing model. The
2013 Toyota RAV4 certainly has all the features you need. In fact the RAV4
can now compete with the Honda CR-V at the top of the economy crossover SUV

2012 Chevrolet Equinox Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/equinox/2012/ The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox
is a compact crossover SUV in a segment that is usually dominated by the
likes of the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. Chevy bills the Equinox as a
crossover for the modern lifestyle and the stats do not lie. The Equinox is
at or near the top in every category that matters to the crossover buyer.
This vehicle has wonderful fuel economy, a great warranty, and tons of
interior space. The 2012 Chevy Equinox is a great vehicle for the price and
if you are looking to buy a vehicle in this automotive segment, you must
take the Equinox for a test drive. The base price for the LS FWD is $23,530
with the top of the line LTZ AWD starting at $30,970.
There are 2 different engine options on the Chevy Equinox: one is smaller
more fuel efficient, while the other is larger and more powerful. The
smaller engine is a 2.4 liter ECOTEC 4-cylinder that makes 184 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a very nice shifting 6-speed automatic. Fuel
economy figures are great at 22 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.
The second engine is an optional 3.0 liter DOHC V-6 featuring direct
injection. This larger motor makes 264 horsepower and 216 lb-ft. of
torque while mustering 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.
Choosing the optional V-6 engine package will add $1500 to the price of
On the inside of the Chevrolet Equinox there is plenty of passenger space.
This crossover SUV fits 5 but a really cool feature is the ability for the
2nd row to slide forward or back. This can add leg room is you are carrying
a few adults, or this can provide some extra cargo volume. The seats were
designed to offer the most comfort possible at this price point. The
Equinox is pretty technological advanced as there is a whole suite of
utilities that include: Bluetooth, Satellite radio, a Pioneer sound system,
mobile apps, and WiFi.
Safety wise the 2012 Chevy Equinox was named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.
There six standard airbags on the Equinox. Both Stability Control and
Traction Control are on hand to keep you safe in tough conditions. As an
added bonus this crossover SUV also benefits from an Electronic Brake Force
Distribution system and a Lane Departure Warning System. The Equinox comes
with a 60 month 100k mile warranty which is tops in this segment.
While many other compact crossover SUVs may get more recognition, the 2012
Chevrolet Equinox has been a solid performer for many years. With a very
efficient ECOTEC engine and tons of interior space, the Equinox is a sure
bet for those looking to purchase an affordable crossover vehicle.
