Each year, U.S. News & World Report rewards a different manufacturer for the comfort, utility, and reliability of its SUVs. In 2018, they saw Honda as a clear choice to take home the Best SUV Brand distinction. ¹

If Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township drivers are wondering what sets Honda SUVs apart from the rest, they need to only check out this article by the Baierl Honda team. We'll clue you in on all the best qualities these cars offer.

Best SUV Brand 2018: Honda Offerings

There are three SUVs in the Honda lineup that have helped it earn the Best SUV Brand title from U.S. News & World Report in 2018.¹ They are the HR-V, the CR-V, and the Pilot-three very different vehicles with the same penchant for high, long-lasting performance.

  • The Honda HR-V
    This is the subcompact offering in the Honda SUV lineup. In terms of cabin size, it's closer to the Civic than it is to some of its bigger siblings. However, the Honda HR-V takes that trademark sedan efficiency and backs it up with a more aggressive wheelbase and ground clearance. You get great poor-weather traction in an efficient package.
  • The Honda CR-V
    Indisputably, the Honda CR-V seems to be the most popular SUV option Honda has. It bridges the gap between sedans and full-size SUVs, generating 184 horsepower with an inline 4-cylinder engine without compromising fuel economy. At the same time, it offers Real Time All-Wheel Drive and excellent handling.
  • The Honda Pilot
    The Pilot is the big family SUV. It provides room for up to eight passengers, which makes it quite well-suited for daily commutes and fun road trips. Its standard V6 engine churns up a load of horsepower, and it can even handle a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds.

Safety & Reliability All in One

One of the things that has set the Honda brand apart is its firm commitment to passenger safety. This is on full display in its SUVs, which offer the Honda Sensing® suite of safety features.

This driver-assisting technology utilizes sensors and small cameras to keep an eye on the road around you. If it were to sense a collision hazard-say, the vehicle in front of you stopping suddenly-it could send a warning or even hit the brakes autonomously. Features include:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights

All these protective features combine with the fine-tuning of the powertrain to ensure that your Honda SUV drives for years and years. You can count on the HR-V, CR-V, or Pilot to get you safely to your destination.
