There are many excellent options available to you in the new Honda lineup, which can make your ultimate choice all the more difficult. While all may seem appealing, you must consider your driving needs and vehicle desires to pick just one. So, which Honda is right for you? Consider this guide from Rensselaer Honda for some help!

Commuter-Friendly Ride

In need of a road-friendly car that can get you from Point A to Point B? Commuters seeking a small car with competitive fuel economy returns should definitely check out the Honda Civic. When you opt for the EX-T trim and beyond, you can experience an EPA-estimated 32 mpg city and 42 mpg highway*. And with the Honda Sensing suite of safety technologies available across the board, you can rest assured that your car is working in your favor on every drive.

Universally Useful Sedan

Drivers in need of a practical, functional vehicle with all the fixings would be well served in considering the Honda Accord, as it’s a prime option. Its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine can be mated with either a six-speed manual transmission, or a continuously variable transmission.

This model proves quite versatile, too, with a trunk that measures 15.5 cubic feet and a 60/40-split folding rear seat to open up even more cargo space, and technology to aide with every drive.

Space to Spare

If you’re in need of a capable crossover, the Honda CR-V is both fun and easy to drive, and it accommodates cargo and passengers alike comfortably. You’ll have your choice of two distinct engines that provide balanced power, passenger space measuring 105.9 cubic feet, and a cavernous storage area of 39.2 cubic feet as standard and 75.8 cubic feet when all seats aren’t occupied.

The Goldilocks Model

If the CR-V is too much of a leap from a sedan and city driving is your forte, the Honda HR-V is just right for you. This newer model in the Honda lineup is deemed a subcompact crossover SUV that boasts distinctive styling inside and out. And, despite its small stature, the HR-V holds quite a bit, with the option to even fold down the front passenger seat to fit cargo of up to 8 feet long and 2nd-Row Magic Seat functionality to accommodate taller items.
