The Honda CR-V has successfully beaten Ford’s Focus RS as well as the F-150 Raptor by securing the 2017 Utility Vehicle of the Year award.

Although the 2017 model was in the running against capable models such as the Kia Sportage, Jaguar F-Pace, GMC Acadia as well as the Audi Q7, it appears that the CR-V managed to impress the judges with its roomy interior and in-demand features.’s group editorial director said that, “The Honda CR-V was a pioneer of the crossover movement, and it’s only gotten better with time.”

Jonathan Yarkony added that, “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.”

Well, there’s no arguing that the all-new Honda CR-V is definitely a great model. Looks like Ford has to rev up its game if it truly wishes to beat Honda.
