Car and Driver magazine knows what it takes to be a great vehicle. Because of this, their annual 10Best Truck and SUV list features only the best of the best in the industry. This year, Honda had two models show up on this renowned list—the 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. The crossover and pickup both made a lasting impression on the editors at this magazine, showing Honda produces great vehicles.
In order to earn a spot on this prestigious list, Car and Driver editors put its entrants through their paces. Each vehicle in various segments was tested for its ride and handling, safety, technology, comfort, practicality, and fuel efficiency.
Both the CR-V and the Ridgeline were recognized for their unique characteristics.

As for the Ridgeline, its admirable characteristics included its best-in-class ride and handling, along with superior fuel efficiency, available all-wheel-drive system, and noise dampening to create a quieter cabin.
