Honda SUV Buying Guide

Honda SUV Buying Guide

2019 Honda Pilot

If you’ve decided that you’d like your next ride to be an SUV, then you’re joining many others in selecting one of the most popular current vehicle segments on the market. At Diamond Honda, we hope that you’ve already narrowed your options down to a Honda automobile, but this still leaves four different models for you to choose from! To help you with this tough decision, we’ll be offering you the highlights of every SUV Honda currently offers.

Honda HR-V

The Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover that has five different trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Each one of these is available with AWD for greater stability and control when you’re out on the roads. Later model years are also available with Honda Sensing®, which is a suite of different driver-assist technologies that you’ll find helpful anytime you're behind the wheel. With seating for five, it provides a total passenger volume of 100.1 cubic ft. and a 58.8 cubic ft. cargo volume1 with rear seats folded down.

Honda CR-V

Winner of the Kelley Blue Book 2019 Best Buy: Compact SUV2 title as well as the 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick2, the Honda CR-V certainly isn’t a bad choice if you’re looking for a step up in size from the HR-V. It still has a seating capacity for five, but offers a larger 105.9 cubic ft. of passenger volume and a total cargo volume1 of 75.8 cubic ft. with the seats down. Each of its four trims is available with Honda’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. If you choose to drive some of its latest model years, you’ll be able to choose between its standard engine found on the LX trim and the turbocharged option found on higher trim levels.

Honda Passport

Recently announced to be released in 2019, the Honda Passport is Honda’s all-new midsize SUV. Designed to be rugged, this set of wheels has the Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD system available on every trim level as well as Intelligent Traction Management to switch between Snow, Sand, and Mud settings. Every trim including the lowest level comes with Honda Sensing® features, so your well-being isn't treated as an upgrade. With a seating capacity for five, it provides an exceptionally roomy 115.9 cubic ft. of passenger volume and 100.7 cubic ft. of cargo space1 behind the first row. Packing up for adventure won’t be a problem!

Honda Pilot

Perfect for the driver who always has a few additional passengers to bring along, the Honda Pilot is a massive three-row SUV that sits eight as standard! This can be decreased if you choose to equip the second row with luxurious captain’s chairs, but no matter what you choose to do, you’ll enjoy a gargantuan 152.9 cubic ft. of passenger volume, as well as 109 cubic ft. of storage space1 behind the first row. With the assistance of a powerful V6 engine and standard Honda Sensing®, you’ll own the roads every time you head out with the rest of your crew.

At Diamond Honda, we hope that this Honda SUV buying guide has helped you determine which option might be the best one for you. The next step is to schedule some test drives and try them for yourself. We hope to see you very soon!

I just bought a used Chrysler Sebring from Diamond Honda. Amazing customer service. The car was very clean upon delivery, and Jose (Used car Manager) was so amazing to work with. Jose is a trustworthy, honest man. I highly recommend working with him.

It took about 3 hours to get my car because it was so busy. But thanks to Edgar I got it! ..today was the first time I went to take my car to get a oil change and rotate my tires. Everyone greets you and everyone is to nice. It didn't take long for them to do all the stuff they needed to do. Kristina helped me. She is super cool and chill. We got along great.

I hardly do reviews but had to share my experience at Diamond Honda as it was the most easy-going, stress free car buying experience I've ever had. Jae Lee who helped me was great, He listened to what I needed and what I wanted didn't try to sell me something different. He was very patient with all my questions. And whole staff made it a pleasurable experience. I will most definitely be back!!

They got back to me a couple hours after I contacted them, and went to check out the car the next day. They made the whole process so easy and I didn't feel pressured to buy at all. I ended up purchasing a 2013 Honda fit and I couldn't be happier! This was the best experience I've ever had buying a car. I would definitely do business with them again.

This is a great experience of leasing car. The sales Andy Zhu is patient and worked very hard to solve my problem. Finally, I got a very good deal for lease a civic with good equipment. Also the guy who did finance for me is great, too. He gave me a prefect package. If need to buy or lease car, I sinere recommend diamond honda and Andy Zhu.

I dealt with Manny Zavala when looking for a used car and he was great! He showed me a few cars I liked that were within my price range. Didn't pressure me into a decision at all. He was extremely nice and knowledgeable and helped me find the perfect car for me quickly. No hassle! Excellent customer service :)

Just rolled off the Lot with a 2015 Honda Odyssey Elite, from start to finish we were treated with outstanding service. I brought in a pretty aggressive quote through edmunds.com from another local dealer and they managed to beat it..But the best part about this is they offer lifetime power train warranty on the Transmission and Engine at no additional charge. I called the other dealers and no other dealers offer this incentive. So....do the math cheaper price + lifetime power train warranty at no additional cost=One Happy Customer. BtW, to the sales manager that sold me the mud flaps as an accessory - Remember we don't need them in California because it never rains. lol. Thanks D Cho for making sales process smooth and easy.

Worked with Juan, Jimmy and Rod to get a new CR-V for my mother. It was a great experience, all were very kind and courteous. It made the buying process very easy. If you get a chance you should definitely give the guys a try to look for the Honda you want.

Definitely my favorite experience with Honda so far. Today, I worked with Misael Rios and his customer service was amazing! Upon arrival, I didn't have to wait long and he greeted me with a great personality. I came in with a lot of work- he was open to my questions and concerns and I didn't feel pressured. I dropped my car off in the morning and picked it up in the afternoon having it being car washed. Again, THE BEST experience with Honda so far! Ask for Misael.

This review will be very simple and straightforward. If you want to purchase/finance your next Honda vehicle, then call the dealership and ask for Jae Lee. He is the Korean guy that will get you the best deal in California. Jae is very cool and straight to the point and will sell you the car that is great for you. But Jae is always busy, its always best to set up appointment with him because I never see a time where he is not busy selling cars. I bought my first Honda Accord 2 months ago and is planning to purchase another Civic in March. See you in a couple of weeks Jae.

GREAT Service!

Today I went in for my oil change. Frank Camargo and Elson were the two service consultants who helped me. I purchased my used Mini Cooper at Diamond Honda & they gladly took care of getting the filter & oil ideal for my MINI. I will continue to get my service done at Diamond Honda! The service here is always GREAT.

Highly Recommended

After getting a flat tire on my own lack of focus, I had to go back into Diamond Honda to fix the service light. Once more Jameson, the guy that sold me my car was more than attentive! He actually been calling me to make sure everything has been going well for me almost every month since i had the car! THAT is customer service yo~! I explained to him what had happened and he quickly rectify the situation with a matter of a few hours, I actually didn't even felt like i was really waiting in the waiting corners as each and every Honda sales associates were so catering and kind that I knew giving them my business was not enough, my co worker, my best friend , my uncle and more each had came to the same dealership and all dealt with Jameson lok ! ASK FOR HIM you won't regret it !

I've been with Diamond Honda for almost 15 years, bought 2 new vans from them ,not only because it is located so conveniently but also no matter when I purchase a new car or go to their service there is never a hassle to me. I am very thankful and hope that I will continually get better deals and services from them in the years to come.

My boyfriend has been car shopping for weeks. We have looked at lots of cars and met lots of sales-people. William V. was incredibly helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the car my boyfriend was interested in. Throughout the entire process-- test drive, answering questions, negotiation of price, and everything else that goes along with purchasing a car-- William showed us the highest level of professionalism and was extremely fair in dealing with us and our needs. We couldn't thank him enough. Great experience.

The Whole Experience was a Breeze!

I bought my new car here a few weeks ago & worked with Jay Lee. I emailed him in advance and set up an appointment to test drive a new Honda. He was professional, did not give me a spiel or hassle on the price. He was easy to work with and made the whole car purchase experience a breeze. If you're looking for a new Honda, ask for Jay Lee.
