Summer Road Trip

2019 Honda CR-V
With its 1.5-liter turbocharged engine paired to a CVT, spacious interior and loads of technology, the Honda CR-V is an excellent road trip car. Plus, it gets an estimated 32 mpg on the highway! And with the standard intelligent Honda Sensing safety suite, everyone on board will be safe, no matter where you go. The CR-V is also offered with adventure-worthy features like AWD, roof rails, navigation and more.
2019 Honda HR-V
The 2019 Honda HR-V is a compact crossover that’s kind of like a younger sibling to the CR-V. The interior is deceptively spacious (thanks to the 60/40 split 2nd-Row Magic Seat®) and offers more than enough room for cargo, big and small. When it comes to comfort and convenience, the standard Bluetooth® and USB ports and optional heated front seats make every ride great.
Thanks to the HR-V’s 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine and CVT, you get an impressive estimated 34 mpg on the highway and comfortable handling, both great features for summer road trips. Plus, the standard Honda Sensing safety suite will you safe anywhere you go.
2019 Honda Odyssey
When you need space, comfort and safety, you need the Honda Odyssey. This minivan is more than just a family mobile, it’s a great choice for summer road trips. With seating for seven, a respectable 28 city mpg, a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Honda Sensing safety suite and Bluetooth®, the Odyssey is a road warrior. Plus, available features like CabinWatch and CabinTalk give parents eyes and ears on kids.
2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a great choice if you’re taking a solo road trip. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, thanks to its removable fabric top and 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that gets 35 mpg on the highway. The navigation system integrates with the car’s display screen and offers lane guidance and 3D interactive maps that are voice controlled. The Mazda MX-5 offers good passenger space, with 37.4 inches of headroom and 52.2 inches of shoulder room.
