I also think the option to turn off AWD is great feature.

I have had many CRV's , matter of fact this year makes it 1 year of leasing a 2019 CRV EX. I just bought a 2019 Equinox LT a few days ago.

Pro: like my 6th one, and they are like Apple phones, Apple gives a little something every year, but Android had that piece years ago. Finally this is the CRV to buy, apple car play, adaptive cruise control, emergency breaking, land departure warning to make a few, and all standard in EX.I won't go on....
Cons: noisey, my body is tired after driving in traffic for an hour, touch screen works but could be built better. Expensive to buy so I lease, Honda link app sucks since 2016 so does the nav app. Oil dilution is my favorite, known issue, but no recall. Nice reliable honda is what I say.

Throw in: Nissan CVT's suck, and Jeep is junk since FIAT bought Chrysler.

Pro: The ride, is much nicer then the CRV, the seats hug you and are more comfy, 29MPG is something I would only expect on my CRV, much quieter when driving, touch screen works great, and the Chevy app works nice. Price! Had like $10k off this thing.
Cons: At first I couldn't get over this bezel on my radio, looks "rental" like. Going to see what I can do or get the bigger GM radio. Too many packages makes this price go up fast. No need for that. Lack the sunroof, but I use that in the spring, and fall when driving around town. My Nox if for the highway. Foglights should be standard when I go to LT. Cargo cover i have to buy? CRV comes with it.

I haven't nailed the pedal on my Nox since it has 100 miles on it now, but I can tell it works for me. Will see when that time comes. My CRV can drop it like it's 🔥 when I drop it to Sport mode and nail it, just takes off.
Even my wife loves the Nox and she drives the CRV more then me. I dont think it should be in last but I can only compare to what I have driven.

Motortrend is good for lining the bottom of a bird cage. Like many have stated, only you can decide what CUV meets your needs and expectations for your dollar. I would never go by a magazine review. I've driven some of the ones on the list and would not agree that the Nox is the worst of the bunch.
