Tall Station Wagons: vs. Honda

By The Car Family

Toyota, and to some extent BMW have a new niche for consumers and that is the station wagon. In an effort to shattering the stigma of driving a or a SUV, these companies repurposed their Camry and sedans and created expensive, laden people movers.

The Venza and the Honda Crosstour are just a new generation of station that provide that seating position and available all drive that carve gas mileage, but are talking points at The price of the Accord Crosstour, only with a V6, starts $30K and a similarly equipped Venza not much less. So is similar, although a vast of options can drive prices up You can expect to pay $30,000 with a of options for either model and we highly recommend order piece of safety equipment on a new car that cost can top $35,000. You won’t get the money back for features when you resell, but one day in a makes such equipment an policy.

Both of these are well loaded with but the key element is the size of the cargo We loaded both of these and the cubic feet measurement in real life packing. The has a high liftover and the interior The Toyota was easier to load and had usable room for some In daily life we would go the Toyota. If you haul longer the Honda is the one to own. Most we like the Venza’s optional rear hatch. Both have rear seats have a 60/40 split and flat floors.

We took both of these on extended trips and quickly that the Toyota was more friendly and the Honda the most fun to The Honda has a larger blind to the rear and side and the Toyota is difficult to maneuver. The gas mileage was not as as we expected with both the and Odyssey vans getting figures. The EPA estimates for both is in the high teens in town and 27 on the road.

Interior wise, are adequate, but the Honda has many little storage spaces and the floor bins. Diving it is obvious who their parents as reflected by ride, performance and I was won over by the Honda’s more suspension, but the gauges and many controls make it difficult to With time this be a problem. The Toyota’s interior is with its high-mounted shift Lexus like elevated console with storage integrated electronic connections, and that are a bit too shallow for larger The Honda feels and looks more upscale.

Both of our test vehicles had a V6. does offer a four-cylinder but it is a bit too weak when loaded a family and traveling in mountains Both V6 engines make identical horsepower in the 270 range, but the has six speed automatic transmission five for the Honda. The Toyota is but both cars get about 22 mpg in driving and neither is going to you alarm when passing at speeds.

Safety wise vehicles have multiple electronic stability control and four-wheel antilock brakes. cars stop fairly considering their bulk, but the brake feel is better and the provides better feedback. town the Toyota is easier to We never recommend all wheel unless you live where weather is a concern. The extra insurance in some cases, and fuel mileage make an option questionable.

Overall, the Toyota is easily the user friendly for a family, but it is so and pricy I just question why not get a Sienna minivan or RAV 4? The Honda was elegant and more enjoyable to The GPS is easy to use except for the visibility is very easy to drive a touch of fun. The larger cargo hold is a real thanks to the way Toyota has placed the struts very upright so you a wider storage bay. The struts and rear speakers up too much room for wider to fit. The liftover height makes it difficult for shorter to load heavy objects.

two are quite different and I recommend you drive them back-to-back in you are most likely to use them as around town and highways. I the Honda due to its handling and more interior. The place usually by a spare tire has been into a storage area and the resides in a compartment under the The Venza has a panoramic glass option that extends the rear seats. It lets in heat and is essentially limited in use to who like to stare at the sky or skyscrapers for periods of time.

I drove both of these on circuits and both had acceptable, if not road manners. Neither is a of fire even when to their sisters, the Accord and But that isn’t the point these tall wagons. provide enough room, acceleration, enough stopping and enough interior room for me to them as good enough.

working woman’s view:

The looks old and feels dated. The is sportier looking and much fun to drive. The Venza has 20-inch and tires that create a amount of tire slap. We the idea of larger tires, but don’t appear to help the so what’s the point? Both the and Crosstour are easy to get into wearing a dress and are ideal for people who don’t like to up to a SUV.

Young working view:

The Active Sound system is very interesting in the It is said that it utilizes the system to detect and quiet noise frequencies. I worked the interior is very quiet the large interior space. The GPS on the lets you input data the vehicle is moving and is a easier to However, the screen is difficult to in bright sunlight. Working for making low cost, open servers and computers I am very with the use of technology and these two are fairly up to date. The problem is the pricing for these two would that they have a more sophisticated audio Outside of pricing the Toyota is for family hauling and the Honda for hauling.

Family conference:

None of can replace a minivan for utility, but if you have a tall station each of these models has its The Toyota is well equipped, riding, and gets fairly gas mileage. The Honda handles and has good build quality and is fun to drive. On the other hand, visibility to the sides and a slender bay reduce its value. Speaking of both of these are priced so look for deals.

When you see a car on the side of the road, it should you feel more safe.

Across the United States, the most careful, safe on the road would probably to being nervous when spot a police officer traffic laws. Instead of feelings of safety, our traffic are used to create fear. Can ever change?
