Honda Awarded Best SUV Brand by U.S. News and World Report
The accolades just keep rolling in for Honda and their impressive lineup of vehicles! Not only was the 2018 CR-V just named Motor Trend’s 2018 SUV of the Year, which we discussed previously, but the automaker recently earned another top title. Frank Ancona Honda, an Olathe-based car dealership, is proud to announce that Honda has been awarded the title of Best SUV Brand of 2018 from U.S. News & World Report!
According to the report, with over 35 different brands of vehicles sold in the U.S., editors had to complete a great deal of vehicle testing in order to determine which marque would receive top marks. U.S. News & World Report claims that the Best Vehicle Brand Awards are meant to help consumers better understand which brands excel in areas that matter by cutting through all the typical marketing spin. The winners of each category are based on overall scores for each vehicle as well as safety and reliability data. After thorough testing, the editors chose Honda as the Best SUV Brand for a third time!
The three different SUV models offered by Honda; the capable subcompact HR-V, the redesigned compact CR-V or the three-row Pilot, all offer customers a great deal of versatility in their everyday driving. Each vehicle is no stranger to awards especially from U.S. News & World Report as the models have won titles such as:
- 2017 Best Car for Families
- 2017 Best Car for the Money
- 2017 Best Compact SUV for the money
- 2017 Best Compact SUV for Families
- 2017 Best New SUV for Teens
- 2017 Best 3-Row SUV for Families
Aside from U.S. News, these vehicles have been tremendously well-received by critics. The CR-V, often considered America’s favorite SUV, continues to impress judges since the vehicle’s drastic redesign last year. The two-time winner of Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year, available now at Frank Ancona Honda, boasts drastic advancements in vehicle design. The latest model features a powerful 1.5L engine that puts out an impressive 190-horsepower as well as a 2.4L engine capable of spitting out 184-horsepower. Both engines, when combined with the continuously variable transmission, provide the CR-V with a fun, quiet and comfortable ride.
The Pilot, another popular SUV available at Frank Ancona Honda, offers customers a tremendous amount of space inside their vehicle with three rows of available seating and tremendous amounts of luxurious features such as USB ports to keep everyone’s devices charged for longer trips. This hard-to-find SUV showcases a 3.5L engine that is capable of 280-horsepower, making it the ideal vehicle for a winter warrior that wants to challenge Mother Nature this winter!
