The CR-V and the RAV4, totally redesigned for 2002, are both roomier and more refined than their predecessors-just what the doctor ordered in this more competitive segment. Inside, Toyota keeps the controls simple and instinctive, which our testers liked. The gearshift on the Honda, by contrast, juts out of the instrument panel near the speedometer, and there's a huge coin box in the middle of the dash where you expect to find radio and climate controls. Saturn also keeps things simple, though we didn't like its cavernous forward dash, which seems to disappear into the windshield 3 feet in front of you. You'd think this largesse would mean more interior cargo room, but the CR-V can actually hold 6 more cubic feet than the Vue. With all the sheetmetal around you, though, the Saturn does make you feel secure.
