1. Excellent Fuel Economy

The 2018 Honda CR-V LX and Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring–both current available at Driver’s Way–are prime examples of autos with excellent fuel economy.

The 2018 Honda CR-V LX is one of the most fuel efficient compact SUVs that you’ll find in the Driver’s Way lot. With ample low-end torque and fuel-sipping design, EPA estimates show this hot ride can get as much as 34 mpg on the highway. Wowee, wow, wow!

Driver’s Way can also lead you to the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring, which provides peppy acceleration along with high fuel economy.

What gives Mazda’s 2016 CX-5 Grand Touring such good mileage? Take a look under the hood. Housing a 2.5-liter engine, this compact SUV gets 29 mpg combined (26/33). Totally worth your fuel-economy while!

2. Incredible Cargo Space

Need to fit a full load of passengers and cargo? Incredible space is where compact SUVS truly shine. Take the 2018 Honda CR-V LX for example—one of Driver’s Way‘s most popular sellers.

Sure, the Honda CR-V falls into the compact SUV category, but its cargo space will prove otherwise. Can you guess how much space it offers? 75.8 cubic feet! This number competes with that of midsize SUVs. Amazing, isn’t it?

This means you can head to vacation town and not have to worry about not having enough cargo space. Trust us—you definitely will!
