Honda SUVs vs. the Competition

  • Honda SUVs Versus the Competition Slider

How do Honda SUVs stack up against brands like Toyota, Nissan, and Subaru?

When it comes to quality engineering Honda knows a thing or two about building first-class SUVs. Join Vern Eide Honda in Sioux Falls as we break down each vehicle and highlight a few reasons why they stack up nicely against competing brands like Subaru, Toyota, and Nissan. Whether you’re in need of a smaller crossover with excellent fuel economy like CR-V or HR-V, or you’re looking for power and cargo-hauling capabilities like Pilot and Passport, our Sioux Falls dealership carries the full Honda SUV lineup.

Through years of serving our customers and operating our Sioux Falls Honda dealership, we’ve heard that the ability to maintain solid MPG, navigate all weather conditions, the amount of cargo space, and something that is fun to drive typically top the list. Of course, price is a factor, but not the main decision for drivers doing their research. Safety, reliability, cost to own, and resale value are must-haves no matter what brand is being discussed—from Toyota to Nissan to Subaru. As you consider what sport utility vehicle is your best option, we’ve outlined the different types of SUVs you can choose from.
