Selecting the Best Crossover SUV on the Market

January 27th, 2014 by

Best Crossover SUVCrossover SUV’s are one of the most popular types of vehicles these days, and for good reason. They combine the efficiency of a sedan with the functionality of an SUV and the styling of a premium automobile. Crossover SUVs manage to be everything to everyone, which is why almost every major automaker produces one. It’s not easy to identify a single crossover SUV that rises above all the rest. But when you really start to dive into the features and capabilities that matter to drivers, one candidate emerges. When you consider the complete package, it is clear that the 2014 Honda Pilot is one of the best crossover SUVs on the market today.

Comfortable Ride

For lots of people, the appeal of a crossover SUV is they offer the capabilities of a large vehicle without being so cumbersome to drive. The smooth, accessible, and accommodating ride of the Honda Pilot will please any driver that is put off driving a huge vehicle. Thanks to an advanced transmission and sophisticated body design, the Pilot drives like it is much smaller than it actually is. If you are worried about power, though, rest assured that the Pilot can handle it. The 3.5 L V-6 engine can put out 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque.

Roomy Interior

In order to size down, many crossover SUVs have begun to cut out the space and storage options that attracted drivers to them in the first place. Honda realizes you are in the market for an SUV because you want to haul passengers and cargo and have ample room for both. The Pilot is the rare crossover that offers a third row of seating. When the second and third rows are stowed (a process that takes just seconds) the Pilot offers 87 cubic feet of cargo space to work with.

Accessible Pricing

If you are a growing family, young professional, or outdoor enthusiast who would rather spend money on gear than transportation, the Honda Pilot is an affordable choice. The MSRP for the 2014 Honda CR-V model starts at just $29,670. Four different trim levels are available with increasing price points, so drivers can choose the features and looks they desire and the price they are comfortable with. The Honda Pilot really stands out for its balance of value and quality.
