In my mind, there is no other car brand on the road today that screams “American suburban family” more than 2017 Honda CRV. And, yes, I understand the irony is that Honda is not an American company. But they have factories in the U.S. and were ranked by cars.com as one the top American cars, right behind Toyota. To qualify for the list, a vehicle must have at least 75% of its parts made in the U.S.

Here are some other fun facts about one of America’s most favorite compact SUV, the 2017 Honda CRV.

I’m not going to call the best CUV on the market cheap, that would be an insult. And besides, it’s not the cheapest compact SUV on the market, I think that honor goes to the Ford Escape.
