Seeking the Best Crossover SUVs? Consider a Honda

  • 2016 Honda HR-V

    Detroit drivers looking for some of the best crossover SUVs on the road, you’ll find two worthy options at a nearby Detroit Area Honda Dealer: the 2016 Honda HR-V and 2016 Honda CR-V. The CR-V kicked off the crossover class in the 1990s, and the HR-V is the latest incarnation in its first model year. While both models seat up to five passengers, they have quite a bit that sets them apart and makes them each viable options for anyone seeking the best crossover SUVs.

The 2016 Honda HR-V

Though the 2016 Honda HR-V arrived in our lineup for the first time this year, it looks and feels like a cross between the 2016 CR-V (below) and the 2016 Honda Fit, giving drivers a sportier, smaller crossover option. Enjoy the lightness of the Fit with the ride height of a crossover for the ultimate in city driving.
