December 7th, 2013 by

2014 Honda CrosstourHere at Fisher Honda, we understand that there are a wide range of options available when it comes to crossover vehicles. Many models, like the 2014 Toyota Venza, offer versatility, noteworthy fuel economy, and adequate cargo space. However, we feel that there is a superior crossover available on the market right now: the 2014 Honda Crosstour.

For an even more affordable base price MSRP, drivers can enjoy better efficiency, power, and standard features with the Crosstour, and these advantages are just the beginning. Here are just a few of the many ways that the Crosstour outshines its competition.

  • Save money at the pump with the Crosstour: The Honda Crosstour 2WD EX with an automatic transmission delivers EPA fuel economy estimates of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway*. The 2014 Toyota Venza LE I4 FWD falls short of those figures, earning 20 mpg for city conditions and 26 mpg for highway driving.
  • The Crosstour packs a punch: The Crosstour offers better gas mileage than the Venza even with a more powerful engine. The Crosstour’s engine delivers a whopping 192 hp, while the Venza doesn’t quite measure up, providing only 181 hp.
  • Stretch out in the Crosstour: Front passengers have more room in the Crosstour than they would with the Venza. Those that opt for the Honda crossover have 42.2 inches of front legroom compared to 40.2 inches in the Venza.

Experience Luxurious Standard Features With Honda

Honda has made it their goal to redefine “standard features,” and the 2014 Crosstour is no exception. This model gives drivers and passengers access to several amenities that would be upgrades or not available at all with the Toyota Venza. Take a look at some of the features that come standard on the Crosstour that would cost extra—if even optional—on the crossover from Toyota:

  • Rearview camera
  • Floor mats
  • CD changer
  • Power moonroof
  • Stereo anti-theft
