Honda, an undeniable powerhouse within the automotive industry, believe it or not, also started as the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer before it made its way in to the automotive industry. They were the first Japanese auto manufacturer to release a dedicated luxury brand with sporty options available. Honda’s desire to be the first to try new approaches is evident with their creation of the first Japanese luxury chain: Acura. In order to stand out from other competitive Japanese brands, Honda did things a little differently. They put their customers’ satisfaction first by developing and catering to different needs and markets for varying global regions. Honda’s trademark has been its fuel efficiency and reliability, which has paved the way for newer technologies to emerge into the market. Honda has remained a top choice for used car buyers’ as they offer all the features desired in a second hand vehicle.

Honda launched the CR-V to provide its consumers a compact and affordable version of the full-size SUVs on the market at the time.

The CR-V is ideal for used-car shoppers looking for a compact SUV, without breaking the bank. Holding true to the Honda tradition, the CR-V is offered with various features and upgrades available, however, their main focus remains on the convenience and reliability of the vehicle.
In 2003, Honda introduced its cross-over SUV; the Honda Pilot. This cross-over helped shaped the entire market by introducing one of the first cross-over vehicles with third throw seating and a powerful V6 engine to deliver a smooth, efficient yet powerful and agile drive. Aside from its power, the Pilot’s interior design is shaped and built for functionality and improved cargo capacity, making it a great SUV for growing families who aren’t quite ready for a full-size minivan.
