Honda sells a lot of CR-Vs because it is versatile, reliable and fuel-efficient. It also happens to be a terrific car for a tailgate party when gussied up in its EX-L trim.

Giddyup comes from a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine bolted to a five-speed automatic transmission.

With the rear seat in place, the CR-V offers 37 cubic feet of cargo space that balloons to 71 cubic feet with the back seat folded.

We chose the EX-L trim over the less pricey EX to get the rear entertainment system that includes an audio system with seven speakers and satellite radio. It features a Pandora interface as well.

A backup camera, power liftgate and a power outlet in the rear-seat area are also standard.
