    The SUV is one of the most significant innovations in recent automotive history. Sedans are too small, trucks are too big, but an SUV is just right for almost every lifestyle. Do you need to carpool right after a trip to the grocery store? There is an SUV for that. Do you need to tow something? There is an SUV for that. Do you need all the latest technology for comfort, safety, and entertainment? There is an SUV for that as well. Basically, whatever you need, it’s the job of an SUV to have you covered. There are no two SUVs better to compare than the 2018 GMC Terrain vs. 2018 Honda CR-V.

    Both starting at just under $25,000, the 2018 GMC Terrain and 2018 Honda CR-V both have their pros and cons.

  • Convenience

    Convenience is what owning an SUV all is about, which shouldn’t be a surprise since utility is in the name. Besides power, the convenience of an SUV mainly comes from space, but most SUVs, like the 2018 GMC Terrain and the 2018 Honda CR-V, also come with a handy selection of features that will make life easier from the first day you drive them.

    2018 GMC Terrain

    The 2018 GMC Terrain measures to be 182″ L x 72″ W x 65″ H making it the ideal size for doing practically anything. It is big enough to handle a trip down the shore with all your food and best beach gear, but it is also small enough to handle easily without having to feel burdened every time you have to find a convenient parking space. With over 63.3 ft³ of total cargo space at your disposal, you will always be able to fit what you need for the next adventure.
    One convenient feature that shouldn’t be overlooked is the intuitive Electronic Precision Shift which fully leverages the Terrain’s electronic transmission controls to their fullest by allowing gearing switches to be placed within easy reach of the driver. Another fun feature is the front-to-back flat load floor which allows you the ability to utilize every inch of space available with ease with simple to fold 60/40 rear seating. Technology is also extremely convenient to use in the 2018 GMC Terrain with GMCs very own smartphone compatible infotainment system that will allow you to receive and send hands-free texts and calls. Finally, you can also get a Power Liftgate for hands-free trunk access.
    The list of how convenient the 2018 GMC Terrain can be can go on forever, but all you truly have to understand is that this was an SUV that was manufactured specifically to make your life easier.

    2018 Honda CR-V

    The 2018 Honda CR-V is almost identical in size to the 2018 Terrain by measuring at about 181″ L x 73″ W x 66-67″ H. Although that is the case, the 2018 CR-V does use its space extremely efficiently with a total of 75.8 ft³ cargo space for your use if you have no passengers in the back. It also comes with its own convenient features for you to choose from including its own infotainment system with Apple or Android smartphone compatibility and USB ports throughout the cabin. Its comfy and secure cabin will also grant you much peace of mind as you are driving. The higher up on the trims you go, the more luxurious and convenient your experience of the 2018 Honda CR-V will become. Overall, it doesn’t exactly match what the 2018 Terrain has to offer, but the 2018 Honda CR-V does understand efficiency better than most in its class.

  • Capability

    The capability of a car is measured mostly by its powertrain options and the way in which it handles itself. When it comes to max capability, the 2018 GMC Terrain easily offers better acceleration and towing potential when compared to the 2018 Honda CR-V and almost any other vehicle in its class; making it the better option for anyone looking to invest in an SUV that’s got a kick to it.

    2018 GMC Terrain

    The 2018 GMC Terrain is GMC’s smallest vehicle option on the current market, but when it comes to its class, there isn’t a more capable choice. Three brilliant 4-cylinder engine options, as well as the option to choose between FWD or AWD, will allow you the power of selecting the exact driving experience you desire.
    The standard engine is a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo engine with 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque that is paired with the 9-speed auto transmission for sleek handling. For a starter option, it doesn’t get much better.
    If that doesn’t satisfy your need for speed, there is also the optional 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine that offers 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque that pairs with the same 9-speed auto transmission. This is also the standard and only option for the famous Denali trim level.
    If that doesn’t feel quite right for your driving needs, there is also a 1.6L turbo diesel engine option with 137 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque paired with a 6-speed auto transmission, which is excellent for those who just want to save on fuel but still want to max out their towing ability.
    Speaking of towing ability the Terrain can handle up to 3,500 pounds when properly configured and equipped in addition to offering an outstanding 39 mpg highway with its turbo diesel engine. Overall no matter which you choose, the 2018 GMC Terrain is pretty beastly on the road.

    2018 Honda CR-V

    The 2018 Honda CR-V comes with two engine options starting with a standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque. Even though the standard engine is very impressive, the optional engine is a 1.5L four-cylinder turbocharged engine which produces 190 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque which accelerates much more smoothly no matter what transmission it is paired with despite the slight power difference between the two. The transmission chosen for the 2018 Honda CR-V though is a continuous variable transmission. Additionally, when it comes to towing and fuel efficiency for this model, you will only get 1,500 pounds and 34 mpg highway out of it.
