Is it time to call another car your own? If you’re in the market for a glimmering new SUV, Honda offers three separate models with several variants on each. Valley Honda Dealers has you covered no matter what you’re looking for in your next SUV. Here’s what you need to know about the latest and greatest Honda SUVs and crossovers: the CR-V, HR-V, and Pilot.
The Honda CR-V
If you’re looking for a high-end SUV at a mid-level cost, the CR-V has been designed for you. With its console touchscreen, digital readouts, Driver Attention Monitor (an alert system that detects drowsy driving behavior), and leather trim, the CR-V carries features that are frequently only found in vehicles with a much higher MSRP.
Most notable, however, is the inclusion of Honda Sensing technology on nearly all new Honda CR-V trims. Honda Sensing is a suite of intelligent safety and driver-assistant technologies focused on alerting you to those things which are easiest for drivers to miss. This includes:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System, which detects unavoidable collisions and starts braking faster than almost any human could react;
- Road Departure Mitigation System, which tracks road markers, alerts you if you’re about to leave the road, and can help you stay on track;
- Adaptive Cruise Control, which maintains not only a given speed but also a pre-determined gap between you and the vehicle in front of you, adjusting your speed to compensate as necessary;
- Lane Keeping Assist System, which nudges you back to the center of your lane if you drift away from it without signaling.
Safety and style at a CR-V price is a combination that’s hard to beat.
The Honda HR-V
If you’re more inclined to own a pragmatic adventuring vehicle, you should take a look at the Honda HR-V. This is a vehicle built for versatility, with myriad ways to raise or lower seatbacks and seat cushions to fit whatever cargo you need to haul, as well as a built-in navigation system that can get you to whatever brand-new location you’ve decided to visit.
Add in automatic climate control to combat sweltering summer days, heated seats for Phoenix’s odd cold snaps, and high-level safety features built into the vehicle’s structure to protect you in the event of a crash, and you have an SUV that will keep you ready for anything.
What’s most extraordinary about the HR-V is not any specific feature, but rather the price at which you receive everything that goes along with it. All the versatility, comfort, and superb gas mileage (33 MPG highway) comes at one of the lowest price points available for any SUV—less than $20,000 for the base HR-V package, and not much more even with many of the options included.
Plus, when you take into consideration our Phoenix Honda lease deals, you’ll definitely be paying less for your next HR-V.
The Honda Pilot
The Honda Pilot, as compared to the CR-V and HR-V, is a redefinition of the modern family SUV. Whereas the HR-V has been designed to shift pieces around to make room for a variety of gear—which the Pilot can do as well—the Pilot is also designed to make room for one very special piece of cargo: people.
Seating up to eight, the Pilot’s biggest strength is its ability to give all your passengers an enjoyable ride to and from school and soccer practices. With the optional Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control system enabled, you everybody can relax in their preferred comfort zone whether they’re seated in the front, middle, or back. The Rear Entertainment System option also gives everyone something to keep them occupied on long trips, and with its multiple-angle rearview camera and Honda Sensing systems available on most trims, the Pilot ensures optimal safety, as well.
