By | Honda News | No Comments

Which Honda Models are the Coolest New Cars Under $20,000? Recently Kelley Blue Book released their list of “10 Coolest New Cars Under $20,000.” The experts at KBB chose models based the awards on comfort, style, and driving excitement that are simultaneously affordable. The youthful sporty 2018 Civic and 2018 Fit were chosen because of the qualities.

About the 2018 Fit the experts wrote, “This diminutive hatchback has a feature called the Magic Seat that gives the interior space and versatility that rivals that of a small SUV. The subcompact Fit also happens to be fun to drive. That combination of practicality and pep at an affordable price makes this a hard car to resist.”

The 2018 Civic was chosen because, “the Civic is a well-rounded car offered as a sedan or coupe that’s comfortable, roomy, practical, efficient, packed with cool tech, and a blast to drive. And Honda tops that off with a budget-friendly starting price and a strong reputation for reliability and resale value.”

Which Honda Models Should My Family Buy?

Which Honda Models Should My Family Buy?

By | Honda News | No Comments

Which Honda Models Should My Family Buy? Parents and Edmunds teamed up to help families determine which vehicles will best meet their needs with their “10 Best Family Cars of 2018” list. In order to select the winners, Parents and Edmunds evaluated over 300 vehicles, taking into consideration safety ratings, car seat installation, driving dynamics, comfort, price, and fuel efficiency.

The Honda Odyssey was named the Best Minivan. Parents writes, “Thanks to a makeover this year, the Honda Odyssey ($30,090+) looks and drives better—plus it offers more family perks. “The rear-row head restraints are adjustable in several ways, making car seats easier to install,” says Patterson. The  2018’s engine is about 15 percent more powerful, so it won’t feel sluggish  if you need to quickly merge onto the highway, notes Brent Romans, an editor at Edmunds.  The EX model or above ($34,060+) will beep if another car is in your blind spot when you put on your turn signal. With its “Magic Slide” system, you can move second row seats apart to give kids personal space or push them together so passengers can climb into the third row. If you splurge for the Touring or Elite model ($44,610+), you’ll have a screen with a view of the back rows to see if your baby has drifted off. “I love how the navigation system links with the ‘Are We There Yet?’ app so my kids can see on the screen how much time is left in the trip,” says Kate L. Mary, of Troy, Ohio. Most models come in 8 colors.” 

The Honda Accord impressed as the Best Sedan because, “The Honda Accord has been a favorite family pick since the  ’90s—and the tenth generation, which debuted this year, looks sleeker, has more interior room, and is packed with advanced safety features even on the LX base model ($23,570+). The ride is more comfy, too, with back support in the front seats. Spray-foam insulation throughout the interior helps keep out external noise, making it easier to have a conversation with passengers. Backseat passengers also have a bit more space. Comes in 11 colors.”

Honda's CPO Program is One of the Best

Honda’s CPO Program is One of the Best

By | Honda News | No Comments

Honda’s CPO Program is One of the Best! Honda is known for making reliable cars that retain value but now even their used cars are being highlighted. Recently Autotrader released their list of “10-Best Non-luxury CPO Programs for 2018”  and Honda made the list. Autotrader picked its choices based on criteria that includes powertrain warranty length (with a minimum of six years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date), bumper-to-bumper warranty length, deductible amount and transferability to future owners.

Honda offers a 7-year/100,000 mile coverage and an additional 1-year/12,000 mile bumper-to-bumper coverage. Autotrader wrote about the brand saying, “Honda’s CPO program is an obvious choice for our list, as it touts excellent coverage that adds peace of mind to the brand’s products, which are already notoriously reliable. The best part of Honda’s warranty is powertrain coverage that lasts for up to seven years or 100,000 miles from the car’s original sale date, which roughly mirrors coverage offered by Ford, Mazda and Toyota.

Also similar to those plans is Honda’s bumper-to-bumper coverage: One year or 12,000 miles from the conclusion of the factory bumper-to-bumper warranty, or (if that warranty is already expired when you buy your CPO Honda) from your purchase date. Honda’s CPO program also offers full transferability to future owners and no deductible, two excellent perks.”

“Beyond being budget friendly, buying a certified vehicle provides an extra level of comfort, knowing your car has been through a rigorous inspection and is backed by the manufacturer for an extended length of time,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “Sometimes, that warranty is longer than you get with a new car and is certainly better than with a non-certified used car.”

Reviews:
* Agile handling; fuel-efficient V6; quiet cabin; configurable second-row seat; easy-to-fold third-row seat; top crash test scores. Source: Edmunds
* The Honda Odyssey has a wide, low stance with a modern aerodynamic feel. Its fresh, angled lines, combined with updates to its front end, grille, and rear taillights result in a bold design. Take into consideration its great records for reliability and safety combined with fact that it is enjoyable and comfortable to drive, and this is one vehicle should not be missed. Depending on the trim level you select, it can seat up to 7 or 8 passengers. The third row seats are split, and each seat can fold flat into the floor. The outside seats in the second row can slide towards the walls, so that three child safety seats can fit next to one another. The Multi-Function 2nd-Row Center Seat, on EX trims and above, can either fold forward to become a center console or slide forward 5.5 inches to enable a child seat to be closer to the driver and front passenger. For extra cargo space, one or all of the second row seats can be removed as well. Powering the Odyssey is a 3.5L V6 engine, with 248 hp, which gets an EPA estimated 19 MPG City and 28 MPG hwy. The base Odyssey, comes standard with such items as a rearview camera, an AM FM CD Radio with 7 speakers and a color 8-inch interface screen, Bluetooth connectivity, and power front seats.

Three Honda Models Top KBB's Favorite New Cars of 2018

Three Honda Models Top KBB’s Favorite New Cars of 2018

By | Honda Cars, Honda News | No Comments

Three Honda Models Top KBB’s Favorite New Cars of 2018! Kelley Blue Book is known for making lists that the average consumer can turn to to make important decisions regarding buying cars. Recently the automotive review giant released its list of favorite new cars of 2018 and three Honda models were recognized! 

Coming it at number 10, the Honda Odyssey was highlighted because, “Even in its seventh model year the outgoing Honda Odyssey remained a top pick in the segment. And now that it’s been completely redesigned, Honda’s minivan is once again the very best minivan money can buy. It’s enjoyably easy to drive, nicely appointed inside, and boasts a long list of clever new features and tech that take family transportation to a new level. The best minivan on the road? Let’s call it the best family car ever.”

Number 6 is the Honda Clarity Plug-In because, “Driving the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is a lot like driving a Honda Accord, except you get 47 miles of all-electric range in addition to a gas tank. With this year’s Electric/Hybrid Car Best Buy, “…you start up the Clarity and drive. That’s really it. There’s no drama — acceleration is good, the ride is comfortable, and there are features like CarPlay and seat heaters.”

And which Honda model came in as the number 1? The Honda Accord of course because, “From the bold new look to the long list of useful tech, the totally redesigned 2018 Honda Accord is the most advanced, most sophisticated midsize sedan on the market.” That’s also why we chose it as KBB’s Midsize Car Best Buy of 2018, as well as the Overall Best Buy of 2018.”

The 2019 Honda Insight Begins Production in Indiana!

The 2019 Honda Insight Begins Production in Indiana!

By | Honda News | No Comments

The 2019 Honda Insight Begins Production in Indiana! Recently we shared insight into the new sedan, which is a hybrid sedan that marks Honda’s fifth electrified vehicle introduced over the past year. Introduced last month at the New York International Auto Show, the model holds five passengers and includes standard Honda Sensing technology. The two-motor hybrid system allows the model to get a 151 net system horsepower giving the model to a projected 55-mpg rating in the city. The model will be available in three trims- the Insight LX, Insight EX, and Insight Touring.

Honda announced earlier this week that the Honda Insight would begin production in Indiana, including a $61.5 million investment in Indiana and Ohio for production purposes. This investment reflects Honda’s longterm goals of increasing investment in the production of electrified vehicles in America. By 2030 as part of the Honda Electrification Initiative, Honda plans to have 2/3 of its global auto sales come from electrified vehicles.

“The new Honda Insight exemplifies our growing investment in the production of electrified vehicles in America and our associates in Indiana are proud to play a key role in this initiative,” said Isao Matsuzaki, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana. “As the lead plant for Insight production globally, we are committed to delivering the quality and reliability that our customers expect.”
