CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey in Car and Driver's 5 Best Trucks

From the article:
"The Honda CR-V, which copped the Small Sport-Utility Vehicle class trophy last year, didn't face many new contenders, either, although the two that appeared were serious. Mitsubishi's Outlander took dead aim at the heart of the segment, and Honda's own Element rewrapped the CR-V mechanicals in adventurous and clever bodywork."

"In Large SUVs, the defending Honda Pilot faced eight challengers, ranging from the all-new Kia Sorento, Mitsubishi Endeavor, Nissan Murano, and Toyota 4Runner to its close cousin, the Acura MDX, now with 260 horsepower. More competition came from the Isuzu Ascender, a variant of the Chevy TrailBlazer family, and the uprated Land Rover Discovery and Mitsubishi Montero."
