Honda carries quite the reputation as a premier provider of passenger cars, with models like the Honda Civic still as popular as ever. Yet, as drivers have migrated to crossovers and SUVs, Honda has managed to keep consumers satisfied with a strong set of utility models.
Two of Honda’s most popular SUVs are the 2018 HondaCR-V and the 2018 HondaPilot. Both carry many of the same benefits that all Honda models deliver, but these two models also have some unique on-road advantages of their own.
Where the Honda Pilot excels
If power is what you desire from your Honda model, than the 2018 Honda Pilot is an ideal vehicle. It comes standard with a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine.
Said engine produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the Pilot’s available AWD system, this powertrain will provide drivers with the performance they crave.
Where the Honda CR-V excels
On the other hand, if efficiency is your main concern, then the 2018 Honda CR-V might be a better fit for you. Equipped with the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine model, the CR-V can reach 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.*
However, that doesn’t mean the CR-V is a slacker when it comes to performance. The turbocharged engine is still capable of delivering 190 horsepower to every drive.
Where both excel
Both the 2018 Honda Pilot and the 2018 Honda CR-V include some of Honda’s most advanced technologies. Features like Bluetooth® Handsfreelink® are included with both these SUVs.
Furthermore, both models have access to the available Honda Sensing® safety suite. This safety setup includes advanced technologies like Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) to deliver a far safer journey each time you embark on a trip.
