2014 CR-V 2If you’re looking for one of the best cars of 2014, well, we’re going to have to ask you what you mean by “best,” but for many drivers the U.S. News & World Report rankings that determine which vehicles are the best for the money line up pretty well for their needs.

And we are incredibly proud to announce that the 2014 Honda CR-V is one of those vehicles.

Earning the Award

There are many different factors that go into awards like these, but we think we’ve pinned down much of what it is that drivers and critics love about the CR-V. To start with, the entry-level CR-V 2WD LX with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 31 mpg on the highway.* If that doesn’t scream “value,” we don’t quite know what else does.

When you add in Honda’s new definition of “standard features,” though, we think we get a pretty clear picture of what pushed U.S. News & World Report to add it to their list. Here are just a few of the amenities that drivers are loving on the standard, entry-level CR-V LX:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
  • Honda’s i-MID touchscreen interface
  • Rearview camera system
  • Pandora radio connectivity
  • SMS texting capabilities

The “Best Cars for the Money” award is built to combine both value and quality data into one convenient ranking. Combining info from 21 different award categories, the vehicle with the highest overall score is named the “best car for the money” in its category.
