Why SUVs Make Great Island Vehicles

Ready for Island Terrain

Sometimes you need a little extra traction to traverse Kamuela. Whether you run into sand dunes or you’re driving along the beach in search of the perfect relaxation spot, Honda SUVs can keep the pace. The HR-V, CR-V, and Pilot are all available with Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System, which senses traction loss and automatically allocates torque to the wheels in need to give you a boost on rugged beach terrain.

Towing Power

Unlike compact cars, sports utility vehicles let you fully enjoy all the beach has to offer, thanks to their towing abilities. Hook up a small boat or jet-ski to your Honda CR-V or Pilot, load up the family, snacks, and beach gear, and you’re ready for a day of fun in the sun! The CR-V has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds, while the full-size Pilot can tow as much as 5,000 with available all-wheel drive.

Spacious Enough for Beach Gear

Speaking of fun in the sun, an SUV gives you and your family the space you need for beach umbrellas, towels, picnic baskets, blow-up rafts, etc. You won’t have to leave anything behind for the sake of preserving room. Even the Honda HR-V Crossover—the smallest Honda SUV—offers as much as 24.3 cubic feet with the seats up. Behind the second row, the dimensions of the CR-V measure 39.2 cubic feet, while the Pilot SUV’s reach 55.9 cubic feet.
