If you’re in the market for a new crossover, you have plenty of choices—some of you may even be thinking “Honda CR-V vs. Chevy Equinox”—but when you come to a Detroit Area Honda dealer, you’re coming to the place with the crossover that started it all: the 2013 Honda CR-V. Okay, technically the 2013 model didn’t start it all, but Honda’s CR-V is largely credited for developing the crossover utility vehicle segment of the auto market.
Recently, other automakers have tried to take a stab at it, causing vehicles like the Equinox to gain a bit of popularity. Let’s see just who the king of the crossovers is, though.
A Range of New Standard Features Sets Honda Apart
One of the biggest advantages to Honda’s vehicle is that they simply give you more. Honda rethought their standard features for 2013, giving the LX trim of each of their vehicles a feature package that includes top of the line auto tech—in other words, features that automakers like Chevrolet expect you to pay extra for.
Here are some standard CR-V features that you won’t find on the basic Equinox:
- Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
- SMS text messaging capabilities
- Touchscreen Honda i-MID infotainment system
- Pandora internet radio
- Rearview camera for easy parking and reversing
Now, don’t get us wrong, Chevrolet does make some comparable features available—they’ll never have the i-MID, though; that’s Honda’s—but they only come with often costly upgrades. Wouldn’t you like to have a well-equipped crossover from the get go?
