Which Honda SUV Should I Buy?

Which Honda SUV Should I Buy?

2019 Honda HR-V

2019 Honda Pilot

Contact Information


Dealership Information

If you’ve decided that you’d like to buy one of Honda’s SUVs, then congratulations! You’ve already made a great step in the direction towards owning a reliable and long-lasting model. But you still have a ways to go and our team at McGrath Honda of St. Charles is here to take up the baton. Our team is going to offer you an overview of several of the most prominent Honda models to help you decide which could be the perfect choice for you.

2019 Honda HR-V

We’ll start with the smallest available SUV, the Honda HR-V. This subcompact crossover has seating for five and comes with a total passenger volume of 100.1 cubic ft., so you certainly won’t have to worry about feeling cramped behind the wheel. With the rear seats down, you’ll enjoy 58.8 cubic ft. of cargo volume for storage. This model comes equipped with an inline 4-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque and operates at a 28/34/30 MPG city/hwy/combined2 fuel efficiency while in 2WD. If you want additional stability, you can upgrade to enjoy AWD!

2019 Honda CR-V

Next up is Honda’s compact SUV, the CR-V. Although it still provides you with seating for five, you’ll notice a substantially higher cargo capacity1 of 75.8 cubic ft. with the rear seats down, so moving materials for projects will feel even easier than it would in the HR-V. This model also comes with multiple powertrain options. If you choose the standard LX trim, you’ll be equipped with a 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC® powertrain that delivers 184 horsepower and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. Alternatively, should you upgrade to the EX trim or higher, you’ll enjoy a 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine that provides you with 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque.

2019 Honda Pilot

Last, but certainly not least on this overview is the Pilot, which features a larger passenger capacity than the previous two models. Should you choose to drive this SUV, you’ll enjoy standard seating for eight; or, with the available captain’s chairs, a minimum of seating for seven! This means you’ll have a whopping 152.9 cubic ft. of passenger volume and a massive 109 cubic ft. of storage room1 with the second and third rows down. The Pilot is equipped with the most powerful engine yet, a 3.5L V6 engine with 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. This Pilot also comes with Honda Sensing® as standard across trims, and is available in AWD.

“Which Honda SUV should I buy?” After seeing how great each and every one of these models is, you might not feel closer to making your decision, but we at least hope you feel better educated on Honda’s array of vehicles. The best way to choose now is to come to McGrath Honda of St. Charles and start going for some test drives! We’ll be more than happy to help you out.

Darek S. at McGrath Honda of St. Charles was the reason I bought my new vehicle. He was knowledgeable and professional, but more importantly he was friendly, approachable and sincerely cared about finding me what I really wanted in my budget. Not once did he pressure me to go above budget or settle. He is a class act and this dealership is lucky to have him.

Every individual we worked with (sales consultant, manager, finance) listened to what we needed to purchase the vehicle and met those needs. We had not intended to purchase on this day, but we ended up driving home a new Honda.

Joselin met us with a smile and put us at ease right away. Car buying, when you’re not actually planning to buy, can be a daunting task. She showed us vehicles within our parameters and made sure we liked what we saw. She didn’t want to waste our time with options we didn’t like, which I appreciated. She was very easy to work with. She helped my husband and I agree on a vehicle purchase that we are excited for!

Superior service from start to finish. On line scheduling is intuitive, and the schedule is very flexible. I had to reschedule an appointment on short notice and it was very easy. For my rescheduled appointment, I was ready early, called and they told me to come in whenever I was ready. Extremely customer friendly process and wait time was reasonable. Outstanding.

Purchased this vehicle in 2012 and enjoy the look and feel of a Hybrid, plus the excellent fuel savings of 50+ mpg. Needed new battery and decided to take the car to the dealer rather than cheap it out at home. That was a good call. Delighted with dealer reps and follow-up. I am a big fan of the McGrath Team.

I worked with CJ and Zach in the Service Department. Both were on top of their game and reached out several times to give updates on my vehicle while they attempted to diagnose the problem. Although, they weren't able to replicate the tech issues, they did an audio update that fixes bugs, while also giving the vehicle the ability to log any problems in the future. Furthermore, I briefly mentioned that the tailgate was making a loud screeching noise. They ordered a strut and fixed that problem too. If any problems happen in the future, I will be taking my ride back to McGrath Honda of St. Charles.
