Top SUVs for Mid-Missouri Drivers

  • 2016 Honda Pilot

    Drivers looking for that new family or work vehicle should have their sights set on some of the top SUVs in Mid-Missouri. Not everyone is going to have the same top SUV, but we have some suggestions for our drivers. The Honda lineup has three crossover SUVs in it, and the power, towing capacity, and size of the 2016 Honda Pilot and 2016 Honda CR-V make them primary contenders for top SUVs in the area.

    The best way for you to find out if one of these SUVs is for you is to get behind the wheel for a test drive, but we have a profile of each one to give you an idea of what to expect.

There’s a wide range of amenities and capabilities that make the eight-passenger 2016 Honda Pilot one of the most popular SUVs at Mid-Missouri Honda Dealers. Let’s start with what makes it go: the 3.5L V6 engine.

Under the hood of each Pilot is a powerful yet efficient V6 engine rated at 280 hp. Thanks to those 280 horses, the SUV is able to tow 3,500 pounds (5,000 pounds on AWD models), and that should give it plenty of power for work or family needs. If those capabilities have you worrying about the fuel economy, you don’t need to; the 2016 Pilot FWD is one of the most efficient SUVs on the road at an EPA-estimated 27 highway mpg.*

An engine is a necessary part of a car, of course, but it’s just a part. It’s the whole picture that makes the Pilot a top SUV choice for us, including:

 

Honda Pilot

Advanced Tech Amenities: Even the most basic Pilot comes with advanced tech features that include a multi-angle rearview camera and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio.

Honda Pilot

All-Wheel Drive: Every trim level of the Pilot has all-wheel drive as an option (the top-of-the-line Pilot Elite comes standard with it). Real Time All-Wheel Drive engages when the Pilot senses a loss of traction, only sending power where it’s needed when it’s needed to conserve fuel.

Honda Pilot

Available Upgrades: The base-level Pilot LX is one of the best-equipped models in its class, but if you want upgrades there are four higher trim levels with amenities that include a rear DVD entertainment system and satellite-linked navigation.

 

Powerful. Well-equipped. Fuel-efficient. The Pilot is all of these things, and above all else, it’s safe. 2016 Honda Pilot models equipped with Honda Sensing safety features have earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).**

Compare the Pilot to competing models like the Highlander or the Explorer in our comparison tool.

Some drivers want or even need an eight-passenger SUV like the Pilot, but what if you don’t? The 2016 Honda CR-V is available now at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer near you and offers five trim levels of variety, five-person seating, and a peppy yet efficient engine. And like the Pilot, you can have all-wheel drive at any trim level.

Under the hood of the CR-V is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and when properly equipped, Honda’s crossover can tow up to 1,500 pounds. The power and capabilities might make you expect a gas guzzler, but the CR-V 2WD is remarkably efficient at an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 33 highway mpg.*

Honda Sensing: The new package of advanced driver assistance and accident prevention features is found on the Touring trim level and helped the 2016 CR-V earn a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.**

Honda CR-V

Upgrades: The CR-V LX is well-appointed, but it’s just the start. Luxurious amenities like heated front seating and leather-trimmed interior await on the EX-L trim level, and high-tech gadgets like satellite-linked navigation are available as well.

Honda CR-V

Accessories: With five trim levels, the CR-V has something to offer nearly every driver, but sometimes you need to customize a crossover to fit your exact needs. Honda’s accessories let you outfit the roof rails for bikes, skis, and even a canoe. Other accessories make it easy to customize the cargo area or give the CR-V a new look.

 

Standard features for the CR-V include a multi-angle rearview camera, a digital display screen in the dash, Bluetooth for phone and audio, and more. We think you’ll have no trouble finding a CR-V that fits your needs, and that’s what makes it a top SUV in our eyes.
