Then you need to get behind the wheel of a new Honda SUV here at Brandon Honda! With one of our new SUVs like the Honda Pilot or CR-V, you can find your ideal next ride that offers the right balance of seating capacity, cargo space and price.

With its top-rated SUV lineup, there is a multitude of Honda SUV models to choose from, so how do you select the right one for your lifestyle? Remember that when you are shopping for a new sport utility vehicle, the friendly team at Brandon Honda is here to help. Visit us today at our new and used Honda dealership near Brandon, FL, and check out our new Honda Pilot SUVs for sale. If you're after a more compact and affordable option, then you'll surely want to consider the popular Honda CR-V!

The New Honda Pilot Against The Honda CR-V

The Pilot and CR-V are long-standing nameplates in the lineup of versatile yet affordable Honda SUVs, so if you're somewhat familiar with these two models, then it's for a good reason! These popular SUV options do serve slightly different segments, though, so we'll go over some of the major differences between these two fine sport-utes.

The most glaring difference between Honda's Pilot and CR-V models is the size and seating capacity. The new Pilot is a mid-size family SUV that comes standard with three rows of seating, and accommodates up to eight passengers. Honda's CR-V compact SUV boasts spacious two-row seating for up to five occupants. If you're currently driving another 5-passenger vehicle and find that it's not meeting your family's needs, then it may be time to upgrade to a three-row Honda like the new Pilot. On the other hand, if you're more concerned with your new SUV's agility and ample cargo space, but don't need more than two rows of seats, then the CR-V may be your best bet. Visit the Brandon Honda team in Tampa, FL, so that you can tour and test drive both the new Honda CR-V and its larger sibling, the Pilot.

Moving on to safety features, you'll find that while the new Honda Pilot three-row SUV comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive technologies, the new CR-V features this safety package as standard on the EX trim and above. Since the larger, mid-size Pilot boasts a higher starting MSRP than the compact CR-V, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Pilot offers more standard amenities. Still, if you'd like a new CR-V fitted with many of the same cabin features as the Pilot, you can certainly find one. Both models come in a multitude of trim levels to fit varying preferences and budgets!
