Honda’s Winning Models

It should come as no surprise that Honda’s subcompact car, subcompact SUV, crossover SUV, and minivan all received glowing praise from the writers at the U.S. News.

  • 2018 Honda Fit: The Fit is one subcompact that doesn’t hold anything back—and the LX 6MT model is priced at just $16,190 MSRP*. It’s as efficient as any vehicle in the segment, and with a standard 2nd-Row Magic Seat, it’s interior is supremely configurable. As with many of these other winning models, Honda Sensing is offered on the Fit’s EX trim and up.
  • 2018 Honda HR-V: Drivers who like what they see in the Fit would also do well to explore the new HR-V, which offers the Fit’s Magic Seat in a larger package, geared more towards adventure! Its convenience features leave little to be desired, and All-Wheel Drive is an available upgrade option in every trim. The LX 2WD 6MT model is priced at $19,670 MSRP**.
  • 2018 Honda CR-V: This crossover SUV is priced at $24,150 MSRP** for the LX 2WD CVT w/ 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. Some of the highlights available in EX and higher trims are an efficient 1.5-Liter Turbocharged engine and Honda Sensing safety features. EX-L and Touring trims also receive a Leather-Trimmed Interior, in addition to the Touring trim offering Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation, and more.
  • 2018 Honda Odyssey: This celebrated minivan has something for everyone! Pricing for the Odyssey is priced at $29,990 MSRP** for the LX trim with the 3.5L V-6 Engine and 9-Speed Automatic. Drivers who pursue trim upgrades will be able to take advantage of everything from Honda Sensing safety features (EX, EX-L, Touring) to an available built-in Rear Entertainment System (EX-L, Touring). With a 3.5-Liter V-6 engine and a responsive, energetic powertrain, it’s as fun to drive as it is to ride in.
