Red Honda HR-V

2022 Honda HR-V

Features and Dimensions

Let us begin with the most compact of the lineup, the Honda HR-V. While the smallest among the lineup, the 2022 Honda HR-V comes as a highly beneficial choice among younger drivers looking for something a step up from the average sedan or hatchback. The 2022 Honda HR-V features 24.3 cubic feet of cargo volume, with a total of 58.8 cubic feet available with the rear seatbacks folded in. The 2022 Honda HR-V also comes standard with a second-row Magic Seat®, with one-touch accuracy, enabling you to fold in the rear seats easily and conveniently.


The 2022 Honda HR-V also begins at a lower standard price than the others as the smallest SUV from the Honda brand. Its standard inline four-cylinder (I4) engine generates 141 total horsepower and 127 pound feet of engine torque. As with all other Honda SUVs, the 2022 Honda HR-V offers all-wheel-drive available on all trims.

2022 Honda CR-V

Features and Dimensions

You probably recognize the 2022 Honda CR-V as this represents the quintessential Honda crossover SUV, with lots of popularity among family drivers. Like the Honda HR-V, the CR-V seats five comfortably with a total passenger volume of 105.9 cubic feet. The cargo space of the 2022 Honda CR-V also provides a bit more space with 39.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 75.8 cubic feet behind the front seats. The 2022 Honda CR-V's back seats have the 60/40 split-folding configuration, with easy collapsing abilities. The new 2022 Honda CR-V, 2022 Honda Passport, and 2022 Honda Pilot all offer Honda Sensing® driver-assist applications standard on all trim levels, including:

Blue Honda CR-V
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)


Most Honda CR-V SUV models offer the same I4 between all of their trim levels, which generates 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. All Honda CR-V models come available with all-wheel drive, but a key difference in this SUV comes from its new hybrid powertrain. Right now, the 2022 Honda CR-V stands as the only Honda SUV to offer several hybrid variants, with a gasoline I4 engine and AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motors.

Black Honda Pilot

2022 Honda Pilot

Features and Dimensions

The 60/40 third-row bench seating can fold flat and the 2022 Honda Pilot even comes available with one-touch second-row seats for quick accessibility. Certain trims of the Pilot offer customers the choice of a seven-seat SUV with second-row captain's chairs that free up more cargo space and breathing room for the back seats.

Just like the 2022 Honda Passport, the 2022 Honda Pilot can tow up to 3,500 lbs. with 2WD and up to 5,000 lbs. with AWD. If you plan on taking a camping trip out to West Hartford Reservoir near Farmington, with a camper in tow, this SUV might prove advantageous for you and your family.

2021 Honda Passport

Features and Dimensions

When adventure calls in the great outdoors outside Bristol, the 2021 Honda Passport provides you with something necessary to answer the call! The 2021 Passport comes modeled after the Honda Pilot, as a more miniaturized version of this SUV, seating five passengers. Each trim level of the 2021 Honda Passport features a One-Touch Fold-Down 60/40 Split Rear Seat, similar to the Magic Seat® of the 2022 Honda HR-V.

Which Honda SUV is Right for You?

The right Honda SUV for you all depends on your individual needs. If you need something powerful and capable, then you might enjoy the versatility of the Honda Passport, but the Honda Pilot can give shoppers the same amount of power with ample seating for their family. However, if you do not need as much capability, then the Honda CR-V or Honda HR-V present more mild-mannered choices, with comfortable drives anyone can enjoy.
