Case in point the Durango; itself last redesigned for the 2011 model year yet amazingly fresh. And….I tell you what; there aren’t a lot of FCA products I’m clamoring over right now but the Durango SRT has looked father time in the face and said catch me if you can. 2019 Dodge Durango SRT 392 https://testdrivenow.com/2019-dodge-durango-srt/
Though the CR-V is Honda‘s crossover darling, the subcompact HR-V’s attractive price point and just-right sizing makes it a winner in its own right. And starting with the 2019 model year the HR-V expands its appeal with the addition of new Sport and Touring trims, refreshed styling, new technology and the goal of a more refined driving experience. But, with an MSRP of $29,735, is Honda asking too much for the Touring while delivering too little?
