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.

I just bought a new 2020 Civic, and am thrilled. The sales rep who helped me, Jose Barrera, was extremely helpful and considerate of what I was looking for. He really listened to what I said and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with him. In the future, I will definitely return to McGrath Honda and request to work with Jose again!

They extended my service warranty by 6 months which was a very nice surprise as I have owned my vehicle past a year already. So I got my oil change and tire rotation for free and they didn’t have to do that. Very nice. They were also very informative and helpful.

We looked at many cars at several dealerships and McGrath Honda was by far the best dealership!! The salesman was knowledgeable but did not oversell and pressure us. The manager ultimately worked with us to help us find a car that was within our budget that we’ve been very happy with in every way. The service department has been very professional and helpful as well.

Everyone at McGrath Honda in St. Charles whom I dealt with either by email or phone were great people to work with. From coming to an agreement on price and payment through the delivery of my 2020 CRV Hybrid to my driveway. This was by far the best car buying experience I've ever had and I bought many cars before this. So far I LOVE everything about my CRV, from the performance, safety features, handling, gas mileage , styling and color.

Spoke to John in the parts department and even though they couldn't get the part for me (because it's for an Acura) he took the time to give me the part # so that I could find it easily at Acura.

After a traumatic car accident, leaving my 2012 Honda Civc totaled, purchasing a new car from McGrath Honda of St. Charles was a breath of fresh air. Darek was extremely knowledgeable, answered any/all questions, and showed me all of features of the new 2020 Honda Civic. I was so relieved to be working with people who cared about getting me a new, safe and reliable new car. This is our family's 4th Honda from McGrath Honda of St. Charles. As you can see, we trust them through and through!

Needed to get the oil changes. Got a coupon from McGrath. Great price, couldn't refuse to get legit Honda service from McGrath for such a deal. Staff got me in and out in less than a half hour. They took great care to ensure car was germ free. Jose Espinoza came over and from a safe distance asked if i wanted to trade in. Told him we were not ready just yet. THANKS MCGRATH!
