2014-Honda-CR-V1-300x149When West Michigan drivers need a versatile family vehicle, we know that many of you search for a new crossover. After all, they have the versatility of an SUV without the handling issues of a larger vehicle, but these days we know that many of you choose a crossover for its selection of standard features. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson is a popular one, but the 2014 Honda CR-V is the latest in the line of vehicles that kicked off the crossover class. Which one wins on standard features? Let’s take a look.

Honda Redefines the Standard

The idea of “standard features” has been turned on its head by Honda ever since they decided to give drivers like you access to some of the best auto technology at the basic trim levels. When you drive home a 2014 CR-V, you’ll find the following features at even the entry-level LX trim:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • Pandora internet radio
  • SMS text messaging
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls
  • Built-in rearview camera

Honda even gives you the option of four-wheel drive on every trim level, giving drivers the control they need to conquer the slick roads of Michigan winters. Can you find features like these on the Tucson? Certainly. But the difference between Honda and Hyundai is that Hyundai expects you to upgrade the Tucson to put it on par with the 2014 Honda CR-V LX. What you receive at no additional cost, with no need to upgrade the CR-V, costs extra on the Hyundai.
