The Terrain is superior in that it has a real automatic transmission; the CRV has a CVT transmission, similar in operation to a snowmobile, go cart or a UTV.
If a vehicle is equipped with a CVT, I won't consider purchasing it. Too many premature failures, noisy operation and expensive replacement, as these are seldom repairable when they fail.
Think about how they work: There is a metal (steel) belt or roller chain that runs in smooth variable width (steel) pulleys bathed in oil. The perfect recipe for slippage, shuddering, jerking, noise and excessive heat.
