This is not intended to bash the CR-V. But I've been shopping for a CUV for a while, and somehow overlooked the Hyundai Sante Fe. Based on specs alone, I would definitely choose the CR-V - its only slightly smaller (cargo area actually larger) and much better gas mileage. While trying to decide if the oil dilution issue is overblown, someone in the forums mentioned the Sante Fe. So I test drove one and really like it. Taking delivery of an SEL Plus on Thursday.
