Finding the Best Family SUVs Near Albany

  • Family enjoying their 2016 Honda Pilot
If you are on the hunt for the best family SUVs near Albany, we think you should make a Capital Region Honda Dealer your first stop for the Honda Pilot, CR-V, and HR-V. Honda has been building dependable family vehicles for years, and the current lineup features these three remarkable crossover SUVs with a wide range of amenities that combine well with their spacious interiors and impressive fuel economies.

Each of them also has something special that sets it apart from other SUVs in the same class.

2016 Honda HR-V

2016 Honda Pilot

For the full-size family on the go, the 2016 Honda Pilot can seat as many as eight passengers and has a total of five trim levels available, ensuring there’s something to meet the needs of any family. But what puts the Pilot among the best family SUVs in the Albany area?

2016 Honda Pilot Interior

Interior Space: The 2016 Honda Pilot has as much as 153.1 cubic feet of passenger space, giving everyone plenty of room to get comfortable. When it comes time to haul larger cargo or take the kids off to college, just fold down some or all of the seating to expand the cargo area from 18.5 cubic feet to as much as 109.0 cubic feet.

2016 Honda Pilot

Engine Specs: Under the hood of each Pilot is a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 290 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. 2016 Pilot FWD models are rated at an EPA-estimated 27 highway mpg* and can tow up to 3,500 pounds (AWD models can tow as much as 5,000 pounds).

2016 Honda Pilot Features

Key Features: Even the base-level Pilot LX comes standard with Bluetooth for phone and audio, a multi-angle rearview camera, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, and push-button ignition.

Those are just on the standard 2016 Pilot LX; the top-of-the-line Pilot Elite practically competes in the luxury car world despite shirking luxury-grade pricing. And the three trims in the middle bring plenty of variety. To top it all off, the 2016 Pilot with Honda Sensing safety features received a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.

2016 Honda HR-V

The Pilot might be too big for some drivers, but Honda has a new compact crossover that solves that problem: the 2016 HR-V. Built on the same platform as the 2016 Honda Fit, the HR-V presents itself as an option for the family that’s always on the go. Its small size lets it slip easily into driveways, alleyways, and parallel parking spots while the interior feels roomy with more than 100 cubic feet of passenger space.

Features like these help make it one of the best family SUVs:

2016 Honda HR-V

High Fuel Economy: The 2016 Honda HR-V LX 2WD CVT features a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, earning as much as an EPA-estimated 35 mpg on the highway.*

2016 Honda HR-V

Affordable Pricing: The base-level 2016 HR-V LX is priced at $19,215 (MSRP),** and a finance team member at Capital Region Honda Dealers will work with you one-on-one to find a way to fit it into your budget.

2016 Honda HR-V

The Latest Features: Each 2016 HR-V comes with Bluetooth for phone and audio, Honda’s Magic Seat for an easily expandable cargo area, and a multi-angle rearview camera that engages the instant you slide into reverse.

Three trim levels and your choice of front- or all-wheel drive let you customize the HR-V to fit your needs.

2016 Honda CR-V

If the Pilot was too big and the HR-V was too small, then we think the 2016 Honda CR-V will be just right for the Goldilocks driver. Five trim levels and seating for up to five show the CR-V as a vehicle that splits the difference between the Pilot and the HR-V. Heftier than the HR-V, the CR-V is able to tow as much as 1,500 pounds, but its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivers both power and fuel economy.

What makes the CR-V one of the best family SUVs?

2016 Honda CR-V

Features: Each CR-V comes with standard alloy wheels, a crystal clear in-dash display screen, Bluetooth for phone and audio, a multi-angle rearview camera system, and much more on the basic LX trim level.

2016 Honda CR-V

Fuel Efficiency: Fit the CR-V into your budget with ease; 2016 CR-V 2WD LX models earn an EPA-estimated 33 highway mpg* and offer up 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.

2016 Honda CR-V

Interior Space: Seating for up to five and interior passenger space of as much as 104.1 cubic feet let the whole family get comfortable. If you need more room than the 37.2 cubic feet of cargo storage provides, fold down the rear seat and take advantage of as much as 70.9 cubic feet.

The new top-of-the-line Touring trim level of the CR-V helped it be named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, marking it as one of the safest crossovers on the road.
