Serving Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago, IL

Starting at $24,045, the 2017 Honda CR-V is a compact crossover SUV that has a four-trim lineup. Available in five editions, the Honda Pilot is a mid-size crossover SUV that starts at $30,745.* Both of these family-friendly vehicles offer engines that are powered by i-VTEC technology to maximize fuel efficiency and power.

Capable of generating 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, the 2.4-L i-VTEC engine is standard in the Honda CR-V LX. The other models are powered by a 1.5 L turbo engine that produces 190 hp and almost 180 lb-ft of peak torque. Both engines are paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) system that includes the Sport Mode. Available in all of the CR-V trims, the Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System maximizes traction on any road.

The 2017 Honda Pilot’s 3.5 L V6 engine whips out 280 hp and just above 260 lb-ft of torque. The Variable Cylinder Management and Active Control Engine Mount System keep the powertrain working smoothly. Additionally, the Pilot comes standard with the Eco Assist System and Active Noise Cancellation, which are installed in the CR-V. Equipped with the Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4) All-Wheel Drive System, the Pilot is engineered to tackle any terrain. This advanced AWD works with a six-speed automatic transmission system or nine-speed automatic transmission system that has a shift-by-wire design.


The Active Shutter Grille reduces aerodynamic drag when the Honda CR-V cruises on the highway. A shark-fin roof antenna also highlights the sporty profile of this crossover SUV. This model is available in several eye-catching finishes, including Basque Red, Lunar Silver, and Obsidian Blue. Featuring a two-tone texture, the 17-inch alloy wheels look wonderful with any of the body colors. A power tailgate with a programmable height setting is another notable feature in the CR-V.

Exterior paint options for the Honda Pilot include Steel Sapphire, Dark Cherry, and Black Forest. For an extra fee, you can install 20-inch black alloy wheels or 18-inch wheels with a chrome-like finish. This Honda crossover SUV has LED bulbs in the headlights, brake lights and turn signal indicators. Both models have the Smart Entry System that provides gentle illumination.


Powered by an optical system that analyzes lane markings, the Road Departure Mitigation System is available in the Honda CR-V and Pilot. Capable of calibrating the steering system, the Lane Keeping Assist System also reduces the potential for accidents on multi-lane highways. Lateral collisions are unlikely to happen if you react to the Blind Spot Monitoring System and Cross Traffic Monitor. Both of these Honda crossover SUVs can be equipped with the Collision Mitigation Braking System that minimizes the severity of a forward crash. Additionally, the Adaptive Cruise Control can prevent high-speed collisions. Driving at night in these vehicles is made easier with headlights that automatically switch between high and low beams.
