2014 Honda Odyssey is the Modern Minivan

Yes, we realize we may have to change the name of this blog to “The Blog about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and 2014 Honda Accord,” but we get our content from the internet, so whatever the internet is talking about is what we talk about.

And the internet is talking a LOT about the 2014 Honda Odyssey and it’s all good stuff.

We don’t like to be repetitive so we’ll start with the part of this review (from the Spokesman Review in Spokane) that literally made is LOL (ok, chuckle): “The Odyssey (from $29,655, including destination) seats up to eight in a cabin that’s easily reconfigured to accommodate an apocalypse-worthy Costco run.”

Because, really, we all know what a non-apocalyptic Costco run can look so it was fun to imagine an “apocalypse-worthy Costco run” and it’s good to know the 2014 Honda Odyssey can handle it.

For as much as is awesome about the 2014 Honda Odyssey, this one talked a lot about the superior handling of this modern minivan, perhaps because people don’t expect much from minivans. The 2014 Honda Odyssey is changing all that.

“Despite its large capacity, the Odyssey drives small. It’s responsive and easy to maneuver in traffic. On the road, it’s quiet and stable…Relative to crossovers, the Odyssey’s low center of gravity produces a stable, surefooted feel at highway speeds and through fast corners. Honda’s subtle, sure-handed approach to suspension and chassis dynamics give it a lively quality underhand. The ride is firm and controlled but compliant over rough surfaces. Steering is responsive and nicely weighted, with good on-center feel.”

And, of course, the 2014 Honda Odyssey comes with a plethora of technological options, including Lane Watch, back up cameras, Honda infotainment system, and (on the Touring model) the  HondaVac vacuum!

“The 2014 Honda Odyssey really brings the minivan to a whole new level,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “If you are “scared” of minivans, come check out the 2014 Honda Odyssey. It’s the least minivan minivan you’ll find on the market and you’ll probably fall in love with its style and functionality.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to take the 2014 Honda Odyssey for a test drive!

Honda Accord Hybrid is “Moving”

We have written a lot about the the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid; some are lengthy reviews and others highlight lengthy reviews. So this article titled the “Top 10 vehicles that moved us in 2013,” provided a brief review of why the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is the best sedan in the industry…and nailed it.

According to this article, “The Accord sets a new standard for hybrids, with a groundbreaking blend of comfort, performance and efficiency. Starting at $29,945, it costs only slightly more than a Toyota Prius — and matches its efficiency in a better-looking, better-equipped, more powerful, full-sized sedan. EPA rating: 50 city, 45 highway. We had no trouble matching those figures in a real-world test. Just for fun, we tried to maximize the mileage with careful driving — and hit 60 mpg over two hours on flat city streets. Seriously. No joke. We are talking about a luxurious 3,600-pound sedan that can turn zero-to-60 mph in seven seconds.”

Here at Apple Valley Honda, we couldn’t agree more.

“The Honda Accord Hybrid is one of the best cars that Honda has ever produced,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “And that’s saying something. Can you imagine getting more than 5o miles per gallon? And the technology that comes standard on the Accord Hybrid will blow your mind. And it’s entirely affordable. Definitely stop by and check out the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid.”

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, or Sims Honda dealership to find out what all the buzz about the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is about.

2014 Honda Odyssey is “Most Versatile Car Ever Made”?

There’s a lot to love about the 2014 Honda Odyssey: the space, the vacuum, the handling, the technology, and more.

One of the two dislikes listed by www.theweeklydriver.com? “It’s called a minivan, which could discourage buyers who think it’s actually a minivan.”

This family hauler is more like the Swiss army knife of vehicles because of all the things it does and you can get accomplished with it.

“What isn’t there to like about the 2014 Honda Odyssey?” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “If you are looking for the best family vehicle, then you need to stop by and check out the 2014 Odyssey. Even if you’re a “No Minivan” kind of person, you may find yourself falling in love with the very non-minivan maneuverability, gas mileage, style, and technology. And the vacuum. Can’t forget about the Honda-vac in the back.”

When it comes to family vehicles, space and versatility of that space is king…which is why the 2014 Honda Odyssey reigns.

According to The Weekly Driver, “The Odyssey’s all-around spaciousness is impressive. There’s headroom and legroom aplenty and comfort without compromise. It’s an ideal cruising car for a weekend getaway for three couples without having to worry about a gas-guzzler’s limitations.”

They also had a long list of “likes” that we think you will also appreciate:

  • Quiet ride
  • Agile Maneuvering
  • Good acceleration for its class
  • Deep trunk
  • Large, clear navigation system and back-up camera screen.
  • Easy entrance, exit.
  • Strong overall vision.

Honda’s New Compact Crossover to Land in U.S. in 2014

The brand new Honda Vezel will arrive at dealership lots in the U.S., including Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda dealership, some time in the second half of 2014.

It won’t be called the Vezel and we are VERY excited about this new vehicle that will be add some fresh blood to the Honda line up. so what can we expect? “While small, Honda asserts that the new model will have “a coupe-like, high-quality personal space for the front seats and minivan-like elbowroom, comfort and functionality for the rear seats” — an interesting split personality.”

It’s based on the popular Honda Fit and will be 9 inches shorter than the Honda CR-V (only 7 inches longer than the Fit). But we all know size isn’t everything and Honda is the master at maximizing interior space and making it feel bigger than it is with creative and quality design.

“We think this new compact crossover will be a big hit,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda. “It will have a coupe-like feel so people who want a crossover but like that more compact feel will really fall in love with this new yet-to-be-name vehicle.”

Look for more about Honda’s new compact crossover (including it’s American name) in the coming months!

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.

Jesus Drove a Honda But Didn’t Talk about It

We saw this advertisement and thought it was brilliant! We are sure it was semi-serious, but it sure gave us a chuckle and we think that’s good when it comes to advertisements.

The text says it all: “Jesus Drove a Honda But Didn’t Talk about It” and then sites the scripture “For I did not speak of my own accord…” John 12:49.

Honda Recalls Acura RLX Sedans

Honda announced it is recalling 7,751 Acura RLX Sedans to replace bolts on the rear suspension that may not have been tightened properly.

Edmunds.com Chooses 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid over 2013 Passat

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has trounced basically every other car in its class in basically every category, but especially gas mileage. In an attempt to be fair Edmunds.com did a side by side comparison of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2013 Volkswagen Passat.

Long story short: 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid wins.

According to the article, “Finally, we have a sedan that fully embraces hybrid technology without boastfully displaying it in every detail. In fact, the nuances differentiating it from the standard Accord are subtle enough that only those in the know will notice. And that’s a good thing.

“More importantly, from behind the wheel, the Accord is a hybrid that doesn’t require a full restructuring of your expectations about how a car should drive. Sure, you’ll notice its nuances if you’re paying attention. But you don’t have to. It’s a hybrid you can drive like a normal car, should you choose. And if you’re so inclined, the Accord provides sufficient indulgence to satisfy even the most fuel-pump-averse hypermiler.”

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid wins in every category (except when it narrowly lost in cargo space) and, so, it is worth the small increase in price over the Passat.

  • Gas Mileage: The Accord “trounced” the Passat: 46.3 mpg to the Passat’s 39.8 mpg. “…the Accord Hybrid to run in three modes: full EV mode up to 74 mph, series-hybrid mode where the engine is powering the batteries for the electric motor that is driving the wheels and gasoline-only mode for those long, steep climbs.”
  • Doesn’t act like a hybrid. “You’ll not want to rush either of these sedans onto the freeway in front of a charging tractor-trailer. However, should you find yourself in such a circumstance you’ll be better served in the Accord, which hits 60 mph a full 1.6 seconds before the Passat (7.4 seconds, or 7.1 seconds with 1 foot of rollout as on a drag strip vs. 9.0 seconds [8.7 with rollout]). “
  • “In the Accord, however, there’s an immediate response to throttle input that’s both welcome and usable. The combination of instantly available electric torque and the lack of a need to downshift gets the credit here.”
  • The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is nicer inside compared to the Passat’s dated and cheaper interior
  • The Accord offers much more in terms of technology (standard back up cameras, etc.)

“There really is no comparison to the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid beats out every other sedan in gas mileage, style, technology, handling and everything else.”

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to find out why the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid beats out every other car.

Honda on Cutting Edge of V2G Technology

Honda is partnering up with the University of Delaware to pioneer something that seems more futuristic than hydrogen fuel cell technology, something you may never even have heard of yet: vehicle to grid, or V2G.

Basically the idea is similar to that of homes that use solar power; any excess energy that is produced and is not used by the home can be sold to the energy company and the homeowner paid for that energy. With this experimental V2G technology, hybrid/electric cars would plug into a grid that would allow stored up, unused battery energy to go back into the grid and be used to charge other vehicles.

According to this article on Torquenews.com, “Your Accord plug in or FCEV(if it has plug -in capacity) will reverse -flow excess battery storage capacity back into the power grid via a controller developed through the UD’s Center for Carbon Free Integration. You can read about the program here. Assuming that electric car production reaches critical mass in the not too distant future, this energy swap will be critical in maintaining grid-flow during peak energy usage hours. And that’s a big if.

“The partnership project between UD and Honda is on an ‘ experimental’ basis. For the program to be successful, a major manufacturer such as Honda would agree to integrate UD’s board into mass produced EV’s.”

We think this is an incredibly forward-thinking and brave step on Honda’s part. Electric vehicles are just emerging as a popular option among the average car-buyer and this V2G idea is one that has yet to be proven effective, let alone appealing to consumers. But we are excited to see that Honda is taking this step to power vehicles with renewable energy that could potentially be shared by all on the grid.
