What really makes the CR-V an excellent choice if you only have 10,000 ducats to spend is that it offers a lot of space inside despite its compact dimensions. It seats up to five, which is great for growing families, and the cargo area is deceptively big and able to accept large items. And though it’s not something talked about much, this generation CR-V has excellent visibility. The driver’s blindspot looking over their right shoulder is much smaller than normal thanks to how the bottom of the CR-V's side windows are perfectly straight all the way to the back of the vehicle. Compare that to today’s crossovers whose rear window shapes often completely obscure that sight line.
