Kicking Tires’ Honda Civic Gets a Ding

I wrote about the three accidents my family has been in over the past few months, so it was nice to see this article and know that we aren’t the only ones who have bad things happen to their Hondas.

This incident wasn’t exactly the same since the Honda Civic was the victim of a two car accident that overflowed on to the parking spot where the Civic was resting, but damage was done as you can see in the pictures featured in the article here.

We also thought it was timely considering all of the icy, snowy weather much of the Eastern United States is getting. No doubt there will be a few fender benders during this time. The great news for all those Honda drivers is that Hondas are so well designed that they absorb as much as the impact as possible so you do not (I speak from personal experience). Our situation was similar to this one where the damage didn’t LOOK real bad until the repair experts got in there and saw how much impact the car had taken under the surface…specifically designed that way to keep occupants safe.

“Accidents happen,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It might be your fault, it might not be. But in a Honda you can have confidence that your are driving some of the safest cars are on the road.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to test drive some of the safest cars on the road!

 

Honda Leads Industry with Six Top Safety Pick+ Vehicles

TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire — A total of six Honda and Acura models, the most of any auto maker, received the highest possible safety rating ofTOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) under its more challenging technology requirements in guidelines implemented for the 2014 model year.

“As the industry leader in TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings for 2013 and now 2014, it’s clear that our commitment to offer advanced safety technologies on mainstream products continues to pay dividends to Honda and Acura customers,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Honda and Acura vehicles should be at the top of the shopping list for those who value safety ratings and the engineering prowess required to achieve them.”

Four 2014 Honda models were named a TOP SAFETY PICK+including the Accord Sedan and Coupe; Civic Sedan; and Odyssey, which is the only minivan yet to earn this designation. The Civic Coupe was named a TOP SAFETY PICK. Additionally, two 2014 Acura models, the new MDX and the RLX each achieved TOP SAFETY PICK+ status with the TL earning a TOP SAFETY PICK rating.

The IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK rating recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes, plus rollover and small overlap front crashes based on performance in the Institute’s tests. Under this year’s more challenging requirements, the IIHS is using theTOP SAFETY PICK+ designation to recognize vehicles that not only performed well in its crash tests but also are equipped with technologies that help prevent or mitigate front-to-rear collisions. Front collision prevention, which includes both warning systems and automatic braking, is intended to help inattentive drivers avoid rear-ending a stopped or slower-moving vehicle in front of them.

American Honda’s 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK+ vehicles offer a broad range of active and passive safety features along with available leading-edge safety and driver assistive technologies like the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system. FCW uses a camera or radar mounted in the upper portion of the windshield to detect a vehicle ahead. Audible and visuals warnings alert the driver when the system determines that a collision with a detected vehicle or object is likely. Intended as a warning system only, FCW will not automatically activate the brakes, and the driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle and avoiding collisions.

Other available safety and driver-assistive technologies available on Honda and Acura vehicles include: Collision Mitigation Braking System; anti-lock brakes; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®); Lane Departure Warning (LDW), LaneWatch™ blind spot display; side curtain airbags; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front-side airbags.

Honda Safety Leadership

Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies and designs to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders, and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world’s most sophisticated crash test facilities and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of crashworthiness, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. This commitment to safety is rooted in Honda’s goal to be a company that society wants to exist, and it complements the company’s leadership in reducing vehicle emissions, improving fuel efficiency and advancing alternatives to gasoline.

Honda Civic Safest Small Car in Insurance Safety Test

The Honda Civic was one of the few small cars that received a “good” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

According to this article, “The Civic is the top-selling model in the U.S. so far this year in its segment of “upper small” cars, according to Autodata Corp., a Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey-based industry researcher.Toyota Motor Corp. (7203)’s Corolla ranks second. The Civic is Honda’s second-best-selling vehicle in the U.S. after the larger Accord.

“The two- and four-door Civics, made by Honda, based in Tokyo, both scored “good,” the top rating, in the insurance institute’s simulation. Honda has designed its vehicles to withstand the types of crashes in this test and to have a survivable space for the driver after impact.”

Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee said this underscores a good point: you don’t have sacrifice safety to own a small car.

“There are so many big vehicles on the road, that people want to make sure they will be safe in a collision if they choose to buy a small car,” said McLaughlin. “This study shows that if you want the safest small car on the market, you need to buy a Honda Civic.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda in Bellingham, or Sims Honda dealership to take the Honda Civic for a test drive and experience first hand the safest small car on the road.

Honda Civic Tourer Specs!

At first this article confused me. Yes, I figured out they meant ‘trunk’ where they used boot, but only because my mum is Canadian and I had to have that explained to me several times when visiting family.

But it still threw me off every time I read it, which was a lot because the Honda Civic Tourer has a huge boot…er…trunk!

This article has some great details about the new Honda Civic Tourer set to debut in Europe this September (no word about the U.S.), but mostly the pictures of it caught my attention. Drivers could do a lot of stuff with a Honda Civic with a trunk that big! Perfect for “dog owners and towing.”

A Honda Civic towing? Yes!

With as much as Americans love the Honda Civic, it would only make sense to have this Honda Civic Tourer available here, too…right?

Right! :)

Honda Civic to Get Earth Dreams Engine

The state-of-the-art Earth Dreams engine developed by Honda will soon have a new home: the ever-popular Honda Civic.

Really, this announcement makes perfect sense. The Honda Civic is one of the most efficient, gasoline friendly cars on the roads and the Earth Dreams engine, a direct-injection engine, further increases the fuel economy of any car.

This is a great announcement and people are always looking for cars with the best fuel economy, so I thought it was interesting that it sounded like Honda was having to defend its decision by saying, “”Gasoline prices are stabilizing in the mid-$3-a-gallon range, and Detroit is selling quite a few pickups,” Iwamura said. “Yet while the average person sees those numbers, their income hasn’t risen that much. It’s wrong to say Americans don’t care about fuel economy. They care.”

Uh, yeah. WE CARE!

It looks like the revolutionary Earth Dreams engine should be installed in the 2015 Honda Civic. We’ll look forward to that!

Green Car Journal Names Honda’s ECO Asist as Top 10 Green Technology

Honda’s “Ecological Drive Assist System,” ECO Assist for short, was named to Green Car Journal’s  list of top 10 green technology’s of 2013.

According to this article, “Honda said its ECO Assist technology can help drivers develop driving habits that enhance fuel efficiency by observing the speedometer background’s response to driving practices. Fuel-saving behaviors like smooth acceleration and braking make the meter glow green. Less fuel-efficient driving habits will cause the meter glow blue-green, while aggressive starts and stops that consume extra fuel cause the meter to glow blue.”

Honda hopes that using the ECO Assist technology will help drivers develop more fuel efficient driving habits over the long term.

“Honda is really thinking ahead with the ECO Assist technology,” said John Clough, sales manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “Not only does the vehicle itself have technology that reduces emissions and use less fuel, but it’s also helping people become more fuel efficient in the way they drive. It’s really revolutionary.”

Honda is hoping the visual nature of the technology will be easy to use and really make a difference.

“Honda developed the driver guidance and driver feedback functions of ECO Assist to help drivers improve their fuel economy, and in turn, to also benefit our environment,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “The visual nature of the technology is intended to help drivers improve their efficient driving skills by making it a more fun and rewarding experience.”

Honda is honored to be given this award by the Green Car Journal for its ground breaking technology.

“Honda’s ECO Assist system was selected as a Green Car Technology Award finalist for its innate ability to help drivers enhance their fuel efficiency,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of the Green Car Journal and www.CarsOfChange.com. “In an era of increased demands on environmental performance from consumers and government alike, we wanted to highlight the innovative technologies like ECO Assist that make their incredible achievements possible.”

Honda’s ECO Assist technology is available on the 2013 Honda Civic, 2013 Honda CR-V, and the 2013 Honda Accord.

2012 Honda Civic vs the 2013 Honda Civic

That title may be a little misleading. I mean, you can’t really ‘vs’ when you’re on the same team and one model is the new and improved version of the previous car, but this video is a very interesting and honest head-to-head comparison of the 2012 Honda Civic and 2013 Honda Civic.

If you’ve been following Honda news at all, you know that Honda came out with the 2012 Honda Civic that met some critics. However, as pointed out in the video, it was still the best-selling car in America. But CNN.com thinks that’s an “Awful lot of people who should’ve waited” for the 2013 Honda Civic.

And while the 2012 Honda Civic was still wildly successful with consumer, Honda believe there’s always room for improvement and, so, it took the Civic back to the drawing board and made some significant improvements. I highly recommend watching the video, but in case you don’t have 2-3 minutes, here are the highlights:

  • The 2013 Civic looks better on the outside with the new grill and lines
  • The 2013 Civic looks and feels better on the inside, even though it has the same design as the 2012;Honda upgraded the internal materials making it feel nicer
  • The steering and suspension feel better in the 2013 Civic
  • And, while the engines are the same (meaning the same, great gas mileage), the 2013 Civic is quieter and doesn’t seem as gruff.

These may not seem like big issues, but Honda took the criticism to heart and came out with a new and improved 2013 Honda Civic. This created an opportunity for buyers to purchase the improved 2013 Civic or get a great deal on the now “out-dated” 2012 Civic (again, the best-selling car of last year).

For your chance to see how improved the 2013 Honda Civic is or take advantage of deals on the ‘outdated’ 2012 Honda Civic (the best-selling car in America), stop by Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships today!
