Saving You Time, Money, and Headache, Is The 2019 Honda CR-V in Kenosha
Just last week, we told you all about the 2019 HR-V, and how it is faster and more convenient than its competitor the Toyota C-HR. Today we’re diving into another SUV Honda offers, the 2019 Honda CR-V in Kenosha and seeing how it stacks up against the Ford Edge.
Fuel Economy and Range
Getting right to the money-saver, the CR-V’s fuel economy is much better than the Edge’s, which means you’ll be spending less time at the pump and more time exploring new roads. For the days where you do need to fill up, the fuel costs on the CR-V are lower because it only needs regular unleaded gasoline to perform at its best. The Edge requires premium for optimum performance, which could end up costing you 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

Not only will you save money on gas, but the CR-V comes with a few economic advantages as well, so you’ll be saving money in the long run. According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance for 50,000 miles is about $351 less expensive for the CR-V compared to the Edge. And typical repairs cost less as well; $416 less for a muffler, $583 less for a timing belt/chain, $69 less for front brake pads, and $298 less for a power steering pump! When it comes to ownership costs, IntelliChoice estimates that the CR-V still comes out on top, being $6828 to $8728 less than the Ford Edge over the course of 5 years.
Construction and Cargo Capacity
Aside from saving you a boat-load of money, the CR-V also proves to be constructed better to provide you with incredible handling capabilities. Features, like weighing 650 to 950 pounds less than the Edge, and being 8.2 inches shorter, will make it easier to handle and accelerate better. But don’t let the fact that it is shorter and lighter fool you. The CR-V still has a larger cargo volume with the rear seat folded (75.8 vs. 73.4 cubic feet), and the low lift-over hatch design means loading and unloading that cargo will be a breeze.
So far, the Ford Edge and Toyota C-HR can’t keep up with Honda’s SUV’s, and it makes us wonder which other competitors can the 2019 Honda CR-V in Kenosha can beat. If you want more information about this incredible contender, visit us at Honda of Kenosha for a test-drive. We’ll see you soon!
