Review: 2013 Honda CR-V

The 2013 Honda CR-V follows the popular redesign of 2012. As one of the most fuel efficient and award winning vehicles currently on the road today, we always feel you cannot wrong when you choose this Honda Crossover.

One thing everyone says is that the Honda CR-V is fun to drive. We detailed the redesign in great depth last year, and were please to find that 2013 picks up where 2012 left off. The Honda CR-V is very comfortable inside, with an emphasis on quality design and a smooth ride.

The CR-V is also a Buckeye, manufactured at Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc., East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio.

With up to 30 MPG, the Honda CR-V is one of the most fuel efficient SUVS to offer All Wheel Drive. The All Wheel Drive option was first introduced last year, and we think it’s important to have All Wheel Drive in this area.

Review: 2013 Honda Pilot



The 2013 Honda Pilot adds a backup camera standard on all models, along with room for 8.

The 2013 Honda Pilot is one of the best choices for a larger families. It’s one of the few vehicles that offers comfortable seating for up to 8 people, and with a backup camera now standard across the lineup, the Pilot is one of the most practical choices for those seeking a large SUV.

We’ve always found the Pilot to be one of the most underrated vehicles in Honda’s lineup. There isn’t a wasted millimeter of space in the Pilot. There’s room for 8 people to sit inside, and even taller passengers will fit comfortably in the back of a Pilot. Sometimes we look at 3-row models and think “who would fit in that third row,” but we don’t think that’s the case in the 2013 Honda Pilot.

While the Pilot is relatively the same as previous models, a backup camera is now standard on all 2013 Honda Pilot models. This is a big step forward, because we know it can be hard to fit a larger SUV into a tight space. Those problems are now a thing of the past.
