Honda Crossover Line-Up

June 17th, 2021 by

When you’re looking for all the rugged capability of an SUV but want the comfort and nimble handling of a sedan, a Honda crossover should be at the top of your list. These vehicles carry up to five passengers and have lots of legroom, so you’ll get the best of all worlds. Compare these models to determine which will best suit your needs.

Honda HR-V

Although the Honda HR-V is the smallest Honda crossover model, it’s supremely well-built and has all the creature comforts you could ask for. It’s particularly suited to buyers who place a high priority on practicality. For instance, all the trims include Honda’s unique second-row 60/40-split folding Magic Seat, which transforms the cabin into a cargo-hauling hero. All-wheel drive is available as an option on all models.

Following are the four trims available in this lineup, as well as some of their standard features.

LX

  • Remote entry.
  • Bluetooth streaming audio.
  • LED brake lights.
  • 17-inch alloy wheels.
  • halogen projector-beam headlights.

Sport

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel.
  • Sport pedals.
  • Sport mode with dual-mode paddle shifters.
  • Glossy black underbody spoilers.
  • Roofline spoilers to match the body colors.
  • Fog lights.
  • Roof rails.
  • 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels with matte black inserts.

EX

The EX is a crowd favorite in this lineup because several highly desirable upgrades are standard. The most notable ones are:

  • Sunroof.
  • Heated front seats.
  • Push-button start.
  • Programmable power door locks.

EX-L

  • Leather-trimmed seats.
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
  • 180-watt audio system with six speakers.

The LX has a 5-inch color infotainment screen, while all models from Sport on up come standard with a 7-inch touch screen, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. Also, it’s definitely worth noting that all of Honda’s crossover models come with active safety features that include:

  • A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines.
  • Brake assist.
  • Led daytime running lights (DRL).
  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS).
  • Vehicle stability assist (VSA) with traction control.
  • Electronic brake distribution (EBD).

Honda CR-V

The highly popular Honda CR-V is one of the absolute best crossovers for small families. It has a sophisticated exterior design, plus a spacious, comfortably attractive interior with oodles of storage. It also comes equipped with a number of active safety features. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the CR-V a five-star crash test rating.

The main reason for the CR-V’s massive popularity is that not only are many of its comfort and convenience features standard on all of its models but so are the numerous safety features. These include:

  • Adaptive cruise control (ACC) with low-speed follow.
  • Lane-keeping assist system (LKAS).
  • Road departure mitigation system (RDM).
  • Collision mitigation braking system (CMBS).
  • Multi-angle rearview camera.
  • Forward collision warning (FCW).
  • Lane departure warning (LDW).
  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS).
  • Vehicle stability assist (VSA) with traction control.
  • Brake assist.
  • Electronic brake distribution (EBD).

The Honda CR-V crossover comes in five trim levels, with the topmost three also available in a hybrid edition. Here are some of the features you’ll find standard in each one.

A highlight of the CR-V’s design is the pairing of its excellent turbocharged engine with one of the top CVTs in existence. However, you will also appreciate its strong brakes, responsive steering, and refined handling. 

Honda executed its hybrid system quite nicely. Two electric motors combine with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for 212 horsepower. Honda added sound-deadening materials to mitigate engine noise, as well as an active noise-canceling feature to the audio system. It’s worth noting that all-wheel drive is an available option for all trim levels and comes standard on all hybrid models.

It’s got great ground clearance and a powerful V-6 powertrain that’s as speedy as it is fuel-efficient.
