However, you can transform your wintery drives with a reliable set of wheels that have been designed to take on not-so-ideal conditions. At Faulkner Honda, we have found the best Honda vehicles in the snow, so your trips can be rewarding, safe, and easy. Check them out below.
The Honda CR-V
This subcompact vehicle is ready to hit the snow, filled with practical components and features made for any terrain. Available with Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System, the CR-V offers great handling, especially in snow conditions. And with the optional 190 horsepower turbocharged engine on your side, you’ll be set to take on what the road throws your way.
This vehicle also comes standard with intermittent window wipers with a heated wiper zone in the back, as well as the available heated exterior side mirrors, so defrosting in the morning is super easy.
The Honda Pilot
The Pilot has proven itself to be a champion of the roads even on snowy days. When the 208 horsepower V6 engine is paired with the available 9-speed transmission and AWD, you won’t only be able to master slick settings, you’ll get great fuel efficiency while doing it.
Also available is the Intelligent Traction Management System with Snow mode. This works with you to improve handling in winter weather, providing easy maneuverability and assurance.
The Honda Ridgeline
The highly capable Ridgeline truck is a great choice for winter driving, as it comes equipped with the available i-VTM4™ AWD system, as well as the above mentioned Intelligent Traction Management System.
Also available is the remote start engine, which allows you to get your truck warmed up while staying inside away from the cold. Additionally, heated elements in the exterior side mirrors, steering wheel, and front seats can be added, allowing for warmer snowy mornings.
Available in all Honda models, you’ll receive the innovative driver-assistive technologies that are extra helpful in the winter. These features use sensors around your vehicle to keep you in the know and offer that extra bit of aid when you need it the most. They include:
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ – By sensing an impending crash, it applies power to the brakes to lessen the impact or prevent the collision altogether.
Road Departure Mitigation System – If you’re about to leave the road, this system will help you keep from doing so.
Adaptive Cruise Control – While maintaining a set distance between you and the car in front of you on the highway, you won’t have to change your speed, leaving you free to focus on snowy driving.
Lane Keeping Assist System – Lanes can be hard to see in the snow, but this feature helps to stay in the lines and will even give a nudge to your steering wheel if you veer without signaling.
