I want a car like my 1998 Honda CR-V

Cosmetic - I want something smaller, boxy, jeep-y, that I can step-up into (I'm 5'2"). Newer CRV are lower to the ground like Foresters and that 'roomy' feel is way more than I need.

Performance - AWD, 25+mpg, reliable for long distance highway driving (I'm in Western Colorado)

The new HRV feels like a weird a little bubble. I'm in a 2008 Forester. It's a good car, but I'm physically uncomfortable in it and it barely gets 21mpg.

Haven't tested but thinking about Mazda CX5, Jeep Renegade (or Liberty), a smaller GMC, Chevy Trax, Toyota Matrix

Suggestions? Recommendations?

    Buick Encore, Nissan Rogue, Subaru Crosstrek, Ford Edge, Jeep Renegade. Try some of those. The Rogue is the most like your old CRV I think. All of them have AWD versions.

    One thing that will be different. Almost anything you buy is going to be a lot faster!

    I'm a former '98 CR-V owner. I loved it, but I'm glad I had a stick-shift!

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!
