Which Honda is Best For Your Large Four-Legged Friends

What's the best vehicle to own if you're the companion of a large dog? It's actually a question that we here at Lujack Honda are asked quite frequently by canine owners. Until recently, our large vehicle of choice was the Honda Element. Unfortunately, it's been discontinued, with no redesign on the horizon.

But that doesn't mean those who want a comfortable ride for their fury friends need to start looking elsewhere. There are still two great choices for dog lovers who are seeking a roomy ride within the new Honda lineup.

First, there's the 2012 Honda CR-V. Though officially noted as being a compact crossover SUV, it features ample cargo room with a total of 70.9 cubic feet when the seats are down. And the benefits don't stop there either. The 2012 Honda CR-V is efficient thanks to its smaller size. It boasts an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city/31 mpg highway*, and it's available in either front- or all-wheel drive.

But let's say you have a really big dog... We're talking a B-I-G dog that needs some serious room to stretch. In that case, the 2012 Honda Pilot might be your ride of choice. Total cargo room with the seats down? With three rows of seating, you can actually put only the third down, and still have room for five passengers to sit comfortably. That option provides you with a total of 47.7 cubic feet of room. Putting both rear rows of seats down? That'll net you a grand total of 87 cubic feet. The 2012 Honda Pilot is also a great choice if you're looking for something with a little more power to it. Available in either front- or four-wheel drive, it features a 3.5-liter, 24-Valve SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine under the hood.

For more information on the 2012 Honda CR-V or Pilot, be sure to contact Lujack Honda today. Or, simply stop in and see us in person at 3700 N Harrison Street to learn more in person.
