What is a Crossover Vehicle?

Everyone looks for the best of both worlds – to have their cake and eat it too. Fortunately, it’s possible to have the ideal vehicle that melds together the compact accessibility of a sedan and the utility of a SUV. A crossover vehicle is created on a sedan platform but includes varying features of a SUV – such as volume, towing abilities, and a higher ground-clearance. It retains the essentials of a sedan – car-like handling, superior fuel-economy, and independent rear suspension.

Honda Pilot

Honda offers a variety of crossover vehicles. The largest of the fleet, the Honda Pilot, offers the comfort and amenities of a full-size SUV with the handling and passenger-car qualities of a sedan. The Honda Pilot is the brand’s only three-row vehicle, surpassed in length only by the Honda Crosstour.

Honda Crosstour

The Honda Crosstour is a full-size crossover SUV. Much like the Honda Pilot, the Honda Crosstour is available in a multitude of models with varying safety, style and utility features. Reminiscent of the Accord Wagon, the Crosstour has the complete maneuverability of a sedan with the capacity of an SUV.

Honda CR-V

The classic Honda CR-V remains a top competitor in its class. For the past twenty years, the second-smallest Honda crossover has emerged as one of the most popular of the brand. With a 27/34 MPG*, 1500 lbs. towing capacity and the sleek design, the Honda CR-V is a prime example of an excellent crossover vehicle.
