You don't feel it at all. When you drive even the 215hp XE, its feels swift as hell, even with the weight and the AWD. Seriously, its fast.

CR-V LX 2WD: $21,195

VUE equivalent: $21,395

CR-V LX AWD: $22,395

VUE equivalent: $24,515

CR-V EX 2WD: $23,445

VUE equivalent: $22,715

CR-V EX AWD: $24,645

VUE equivalent: $25,835

CR-V EX-L 2WD: $25,395

VUE equivalent: $24,530

CR-V EX-L AWD: $26,595

VUE equivalent: $27,650

CR-V EX-L 2WD + NAV: $27,395

VUE equivalent: $26,705

CR-V EX-L AWD + NAV: $28,595

VUE equivalent: $29,825

2WD CR-Vs are generally more expensive than comparable 2WD VUEs (both with 2.4L I4s), while AWD VUEs are more expensive (by $1,055 to $2,120, depending on trim) than comparable AWD CR-Vs (mandatory V6 on the VUE AWD).

CR-V 2WD: 20.4 lb/hp

VUE 2WD: 23.3 lb/hp

CR-V AWD: 21.1 lb/hp

VUE AWD: 20.1 lb/hp (V6)

Of course there are some equipment disparities, though I tried to keep them as close as possible. For example, the CR-V gets a rear view camera with the navigation system; the VUE doesn't. The VUE offers OnStar; the CR-V doesn't. LX CR-Vs get 17" steelies, while XE (the trim level I used throughout) VUEs get 16" alloys. EX CR-Vs get 17" alloys. But overall, the VUE is priced neck-and-neck with the CR-V; any differences in performance are accounted by price.

MPG-wise, the '08 VUE Green Line will probably be comparable to the regular 2.4 CR-V -- hopefully the BAS system can cancel out the extra 500+ lbs. It should be interesting to see how the GL is priced; the extra cost will probably bring it to CR-V 2WD pricing.

Cool, thanks for the comparo. I don't see any reason why the VUE won't sell huge; it's very competitively priced and I think it could seriously be best-in-class. The interior looks very good.

There has been a few on the roads here in Michigan, and they look alot better in person. I wasn't sold on it at the Detroit show..yet. It probably had something to do with the easter egg blue color. But I've seen a few other colors on it and they look quite nice. The tailights still scream generic Japanese to me though.
