2018 Honda CR-V Driver

According to the experts at the U.S. News and World Report, drivers on the lookout for a new SUV would be wise to find out what Honda has to offer. This manufacturer has just been chosen as the Best SUV Brand of 2018, and once you’ve seen what the 2018 Honda HR-V, the 2018 Honda CR-V, and the 2018 Honda Pilot can do, you’ll be hard pressed to disagree.

Choosing the Right SUV

Each of these models offers ample interior volume and a massive, flexible cargo storage area. What’s more, the HR-V, the CR-V, and the Pilot all drive with an EPA-estimated fuel economy that puts their competitors to shame.

  • Honda HR-V: The HR-V may be Honda’s compact crossover SUV, but this smaller-than-average offering still packs quite a punch. Its Inline 4-cylinder engine offers 141 hp, and drivers who upgrade with a continuously variable transmission will be able to access Real Time All-Wheel Drive right in its baseline LX trim level. The HR-V also comes standard with a 60/40-split second-row Magic Seat, capable of being configured into four useful arrangements.
  • Honda CR-V: The CR-V stands out thanks to its incredible array of technology features, the most exciting of which come standard in its EX trim level. Here, drivers will find a 190-hp 1.5L turbocharged engine, and they’ll also receive the Honda Sensing safety package, standard. A CVT is standard from the start, and as with the HR-V, Real Time AWD is available as an upgrade even in the most affordable trims.
  • Honda Pilot: The three-row Pilot can seat seven or eight in perfect comfort, and unlike Honda’s other SUVs, it’s available with family-oriented technologies like a rear entertainment system and heated second-row captain’s chairs! Its 280-hp 3.5L V6 engine is by far the most powerful of those we’ve detailed here, but as with the others, even its lowest-level trim can be equipped with AWD.
