Which Car is Right for You?

The 2015 Honda CR-V SUV’s high points are its generous, well-shaped storage space and excellent fuel efficiency; both important if you’re looking to economize with bulk shopping excursions or like long vacations on the road. It does not have a V6 engine, though, if that’s important to you.The 2015 Honda Crosstour features competent power delivery with both engines, an important feature that will appeal to those seeking a muscular machine for energetic highway driving. The addition of a sunroof and automatic climate control on the base level will also appeal to those seeking a vehicle with a hint of luxury and comfort. However, there’s less storage space, which means that big shopping trips or vacations may take a backseat to the comfort of a commute.
