It's a warm summer afternoon, not a cloud in the sky and no chance of rain. The sun's light was shining down at full effect, but the heat wasn't overwhelming. You stand in front of your driveway and see your joy sitting quietly. Just glancing at the mesmerizing vehicle parked outside wasn't nearly enough for you to take in its full beauty. The sun reflected off the car the way it does on the new cars at showrooms when you drive past. Glossy black and silver paint, accented perfectly by the bright chrome trim and the body's unique curve compelling you to drive it. You get in and smell that familiar scent of leather interior. You start it up and know just where to go. Just before you head off you open up the windows to feel the breeze as you drive.
Your Favorite SUV Toyota Rush
No matter how much people love sedans and hatchbacks, it's a known fact that the SUV is King. The utility, ride height, and go-anywhere capability is all that matters.
If there’s anything Toyota’s done right with the Rush, it’s the way they’ve nailed the design. Exterior aesthetics aside, the only other thing going for the Rush is that it’s great value for money. It has amazing features: LED headlamps and taillights with automatic light control, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control with rear vents, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with 8 speakers, smart keyless entry with push-button start/stop, rear parking sensors with camera, 6 airbags, ABS with EBD and stability control with hill-start assist; that should make an entry-level German luxury car green with envy. The 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 104 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque. The Rush is easy to maneuver thanks to its tiny turning radius. When it comes to safety, here’s a reminder: it has traction control; hill-start assist; six airbags; and an exceptional crash rating.
A Reliable Package: Honda HR-V
Who needs a full-size SUV anymore? Honda’s compact HR-V does more with less. With clever interior packaging, the 2019 Honda HR-V makes maximum use of its small footprint.

Exterior styling is an important element for car shoppers looking to buy a subcompact crossover like the HR-V.

On the inside, the HR-V has average front-seat space, with the best rear-seat legroom among the compact crossover set. The HR-V also offers a good setup for hauling cargo. It offers 23.2 cubic feet of trunk space with four adults on-board and has the Magic Seat setup allowing the rear seats to fold flat with the pull of a latch. Honda offers the HR-V with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, generating 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque, with standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
Cars like the 2019 Honda HR-V were virtually unheard of a decade ago, but now it seems like every automaker needs to have one. The HR-V distinguishes itself from its many rivals simply by being good at its job. It offers plenty of space for passengers and cargo, with good safety ratings, at a reasonable price. Exterior styling and lively handling give the Honda a little extra character. More power and a better transmission would be appreciated, but Honda has crafted a great all-rounder.
