The all-new Honda CR-V has climbed its way all the way to the top by nabbing the 2017 Utility Vehicle of the Year award. The Honda successfully beat Ford’s Focus RS along with the F-150 Raptor.

The 2017 CR-V also had to compete against the Kia Sportage, Jaguar F-Pace, GMC Acadia and Audi Q7 – these are all impressively capable models but it looks like the Honda simply stands out as the best when it came to the evaluations – thanks to its spacious interior and in-demand features.

Jonathan Yarkony,’s group editorial director, clarified that, “The Honda CR-V was a pioneer of the crossover movement, and it’s only gotten better with time.”

“While the competition has become fierce, especially in the compact crossover segment, the CR-V stays ahead of the pack with its blend of practicality, value and ease of use, which earn it this year’s 2017 Utility Vehicle of the Year award,” added Yarkony.

Well, do you think Honda’s all-new CR-V deserved this award?
