Honda is the second most popular automobile manufacturer in Canada. The Honda Civic remains the country’s best-selling sedan for over two decades, and their Accord mid-size sedan and CR-V compact SUV are also extremely popular. With standard safety technologies, incredible reliability, and the latest high-tech features, it is easy to see why a Honda vehicle is a top choice for Canadians.
For a country that experiences a variety of weather patterns, Honda SUVs that offer all-wheel drive (AWD) are great for Canada. Luckily, Honda offers a full SUV model lineup that ranges from small to midsize with options in between.

2022 Honda HR-V
The 2022 Honda HR-V is the smallest of the Honda SUV lineup in Canada. It starts at $26,200 and is available in four trim levels: LX-2WD, LX-4WD, Sport, and Touring.
Small enough to easily maneuver through city traffic, the 2022 Honda HR-V is surprisingly spacious on the inside. Offering plenty of space in the second row and cargo area, it is a great small SUV for those with active lifestyles. Honda updated the exterior styling with revised bumpers, headlights, grille, and taillights to make the HR-V stand out more from the crowd.
2022 Honda CR-V
The 2022 Honda CR-V is a top choice for Canadian buyers looking for a reliable, feature-filled compact SUV. It starts at $30,770 and is available in six model variations: LX-2WD, LX, Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Black Edition.
The perfect SUV for daily driving or adventurous camping weekends, the 2022 Honda CR-V provides a comfortable and memorable journey during all driving scenarios. Outside, the CR-V features sculpted body panels, distinctive headlights, and stylish alloy wheels that are eye-catching but also easily identifiable. Inside, the interior is filled with high-quality materials and innovative technologies that keep you connected to the outside world.
Under the hood sits a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that provides the perfect balance of power and efficiency to deliver a peppy and stable ride for the entire family.
2022 Honda Passport
The two-row, midsize 2022 Honda Passport starts at $45,570 and is offered in three trims: Sport, TrailSport, and Touring. It is the latest addition to the Honda SUV lineup and provides a combination of on-road driving refinement and off-road capability not usually found in Honda vehicles. This is done through a reinforced unibody frame, fully independent suspension, powerful direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine, available Honda i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, and available Intelligent Traction Management system with terrain modes.
Outside, the Passport has been redesigned to look more like the Honda Ridgeline truck with a larger grille with chain-link mesh. Inside, the interior is upscale and uses excellent materials. Its focus on two rows makes it just right for drivers who want a roomy crossover for passengers and cargo but who do not need three rows of seats.
2022 Honda Pilot
The 2022 Honda Pilot is the largest vehicle in the Honda SUV lineup in Canada, as well as Honda’s most popular SUV worldwide thanks to its size, capability, and nimble handling. It starts at $46,120 and comes in six model configurations in Canada: Sport, EX-L Navi, TrailSport, Touring 8P, Touring 7P, and Black Edition.
It is the perfect solution for growing families who want extended passenger space, as well as plenty of muscle for wherever life takes them. Under the hood is a 280-hp 3.5-litre V6 engine, which provides a comfortable and refined driving experience. Inside, the Pilot is spacious and comfortable, great for long road trips, but it is the exterior that is truly remarkable with an understated appearance that doesn’t overdo itself shouting for attention.
