    There's a lot to be said for the humble NA 4 cyl, seeing how the vaunted turbocharged downsized 4 cyls are falling flat on their face in real world fuel economy.

    At the same time, that is a little disappointing to see only 25 MPG, as that's what we average in our V6 powered 2004 Taurus wagon, which has about as much utility as the CR-V.

    The turbo 4's aren't so much falling flat on their face compared to NA 4-bangers; it's against the V6s where you're really seeing the difference. The Accord and Camry are rocketships (do you REALLY need 270+ hp in a midsize sedan?), and yet the fuel economy of these cars are actually really good- for many people it's only a few mpg difference compared to the NA 4-bangers.

    Which goes back to the complaint about the CR-V not having that option =)
