Honda Accord’s Standard Features Set it Apart from Competition

Much has been written about why the 2014 Honda Accord is the best mid-size sedan on the market (by far). There are quite a few reasons it has been declared the best mid-size sedan by consumers and industry professionals alike, but the standout reason seems to be all the features that come ‘standard’ with the base model of the Accord that are ‘extra’ (and you’re charged ‘extra’) on other vehicles.

And those high-quality standard features doesn’t mean the 2014 Honda Accord costs ‘extra;’ in fact, it’s one of the most affordable mid-size sedans on the market starting at just under $22,000 for the Honda Accord LX.

According to this article on Torquenews.com, “Honda has taken a no nonsense approach to model upgrades. You will not find the “build-and-add” pricing platform utilized by former #1 Toyota. We believe that while both manufacturers may produce comparable products as demonstrated by the Camry, Honda’s approach to product specification, market transparency and cross-generational appeal has driven the maker to #1 in North America.”

So what features are we talking about?

“The features that people get most excited about, especially when they find out they don’t have to extra for them, are the back up camera, infotainment system, and safety features,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “They get really excited when they take an Accord for a test drive and find out those and more features are included in the price.”

Stop by Apple Valley, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to find out why the standard features of the 2014 Honda Accord set it apart!

Today is a Pretty Great Day to Own a Honda Civic Coupe

In this extended commercial, we see how we could focus on how it could be bad day…but we should really focus on all the things that make today pretty great.

We think that anyone driving the new Honda Civic Coupe is having a pretty great day because of its superior performance. Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership to find out how the Honda Civic Coupe can make all your days pretty great.

Honda Develops Solar Powered Compatible EV Charger

Honda is changing the way we think of electric vehicles and how they charge. Honda “…has made its way to the spotlight by working on a normal speed EV charger that is able to garner its energy from the power of the sun, too, which would go some way in promoting the use of electric-powered vehicles.”

Not only that, but it is a small solar panel that can be installed on a wall just about anywhere. According to this article, “Not only that, it can also be installed in a jiffy in existing parking areas, as it offers support for network-based billing services and smart card authentication. Not only that, the HEH55 will also sport locking systems that include a “gunlock” function so that any untoward mischief can be prevented.”

While all manufacturing are battling to create more efficient vehicles, including electric vehicles, Honda is taking it one step further and making the way these vehicles get power environmentally friendly, too. Not just environmentally friendly, but convenient.

And that’s pretty awesome.

Honda Odyssey Continues Safety Leadership with 14-Year History of Top Safety Scores from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

America’s most popular minivan, the 2014 Honda Odyssey, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top score available, in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). This means the 2014 Odyssey is the only minivan to earn the highest possible rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS, including a top score of GOOD in the new small overlap front test, and the NHTSA NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for 2014.

“With a 14-year history of top ratings in NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program, even as those top ratings have become harder to achieve, family car buyers have learned that the Odyssey is designed to help take care of their precious cargo,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “For customers looking to buy a minivan that achieves the highest-available safety ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS, the Odyssey is the one and only choice.”

Already the benchmark minivan in terms of fuel efficiency2 and innovative features, the Odyssey’s occupant safety features for the 2014 model year are further enhanced through the application of Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The second-generation of the ACE™ body structure has also been applied to the 2013-14 Honda Accord and 2013-14 Civic models that have also earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating. Civic is the only compact-class vehicle and Odyssey is the only minivan to achieve a GOOD rating in the IIHS’ very rigorous new small overlap front test.

The next-generation ACE™ body structure is designed to improve frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes. In addition, other body reinforcements work in tandem with the strengthened body structure to better maintain the occupant compartment volume during frontal collisions by providing additional crash energy pathways to help mitigate the forces transmitted to the passenger compartment.

In addition to applying the ACE™ body structure to most of its models, standard safety and driver assistive technology on all Honda models includes Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front side airbags.

While Honda has made structural improvements to the 2014 Odyssey, Honda also has applied a new type of side curtain airbag that includes a front chamber design intended to provide additional protection in situations where occupants move in a more angled outboard trajectory, such as those that occur in oblique or offset crashes.

The Odyssey represents Honda’s robust product development and manufacturing capabilities in North America. Designed in Los Angeles and engineered at Honda R&D America’s in Ohio, the Odyssey is manufactured by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, LLC, using domestic and globally sourced parts. More than 95 percent of all Hondas sold in the U.S., are built in North America.

Honda Gets Coveted Spots on Consumer Reports List

Hondas captured two spots on Consumer Reports top cars of 2014 list.

The Honda Accord was chosen as the best mid-sized sedan and the Honda Odyssey was chosen as the best minivan.

“The 2014 Honda Accord is truly one of America’s most favorite cars,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s not a favorite because industry leaders said so, it’s a favorite because consumers say so. And the Honda Odyssey is clearly the best minivan for many reasons, so it’s nice to see consumers agreed with what we already knew.”

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

Honda is Industry Leader for Fuel Cell Technology

Honda is blazing the trail when it comes to fuel cell technology. In fact, if the concept car of the Honda FCEV is any indication, then we are pretty confident Honda is setting the standard.

The Honda FCX was the world’s first production vehicle out in 2002. Honda’s FCX clarity came out in 2008 and turned even more heads. The next generation will arrive in 2015 and judging by the looks of the concept car, it will be incredible.

We think it’s a great thing for Honda to continue on developing new technologies because people want options and fuel cell technology is just one more option for people to consider as they evaluate the costs of filling up their vehicles with gasoline every day.

According to this article, “Inside, the Honda FCEV Concept provides ample seating for five thanks to new powertrain packaging efficiencies, which include the world’s first application of a fuel cell powertrain integrated completely within the engine compartment. The fuel-cell stack has an output of over 100 kilowatts with a power density of 3 kilowatts per liter, a 60 percent improvement from previous iterations.”

The Honda FCEV will give drivers a range of about 300 miles, comparable to that of the Tesla Model S. And better than standing there for an hour waiting for your car to charge (like the Model S or other EVs), the Honda FCEV can be refueled in about three minutes.

We are excited to see what the production model of the Honda FCEV looks like and proud that Honda continues to push the limits on modern technology!

“Here in Washington, we have so many opportunities for adventure that are right in our back yard,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “We have Puget Sound for kayaking, boating, and fishing.

Honda Performance Develops 3.5-Liter Prototype Engine

Honda Performance Development Thursday announced a new, 3.5-liter racing application for the versatile, production-based Honda V6 engine found in a wide range of Honda/Acura passenger cars and light trucks and now raced in multiple categories worldwide.

The Honda HR35TT twin-turbocharged V6 is expected to make its TUDOR United SportsCar Championship debut at the 2014 Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring, mounted in a Riley Gen3 prototype chassis campaigned by Starworks Motorsport.

Previously, Starworks partnered with HPD to win the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and World Endurance Championship in 2012, using HPD’s ARX-03b chassis and Honda HR28TT twin-turbocharged V6, which also is derived from Honda’s J35 series of engines.

Starworks becomes the second team to utilize Honda power for the new TUDOR championship. Extreme Speed Motorsports campaigns a pair of prototype class HPD ARX-03b Hondas, after a successful initial season with the same package in the 2013 American Le Mans Series.

“This is an exciting program for HPD and our customer teams in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship,” said Steve Eriksen, HPD Vice President and COO. “Adding Starworks, a team that achieved great success with us in 2012, in a prototype machine alongside the proven HPD-Honda combination run by Extreme Speed Motorsports provides HPD with a strong, balanced attack in the inaugural TUDOR Championship.”

“It’s a fantastic feeling to be partnering with Honda once again,” said Starworks team owner Peter Baron. “No doubt we had amazing success with HPD in 2012, but unfortunately it was only a one-year program. We have had numerous conversations over the past two years about building a Daytona Prototype motor and we’re thrilled to see it come to fruition. We absolutely love working with HPD and have been in collaboration to find a new opportunity to partner with them again. We will have our work cut out with the steep learning curve to get us to Victory Lane, but HPD brings determination and success to every program it touches. Although HPD already competes in the Prototype class, we feel this is huge step for the TUDOR series and Starworks is thrilled to be part of it.”

Starworks Motorsport has compiled an enviable record in Daytona Prototype competition, with five race victories, including back-to-back wins at Indianapolis in 2012 and 2013; and a second-place finish in the Daytona Prototype team championship in 2012, with two victories and six podium finishes. That same year, Starworks became the first American-based prototype team to win an FIA World Championship since 1968, and HPD won its first world title in WEC competition.

The HPD-developed twin-turbocharged Honda engines to be used in the TUDOR championship are both derived from the Honda J35 series of production V6 engines, and include relevant twin-turbocharger technology, along with the efficiency provided by direct fuel injection.

The HR35TT is yet another competition application of the ubiquitous J35 engine. The first, the HR28TT, was designed for LMP2 competition and won in its American Le Mans Series debut in 2011. The engine has gone on to record 24 individual race victories and three series titles in the American Le Mans Series, World Endurance Championship and European Le Mans Series Competition.

Other variants of the engine have been raced in Japan’s Autobacs SuperGT Championship, the One Lap of America competitive rally and Pikes Peak International Hillclimb.

Honda Performance Development (HPD) is the Honda performance company within North America.  Located in Santa Clarita, Calif., HPD is the technical operations center for high-performance Honda racing cars and engines. The company is marking its 20th anniversary in 2013.

As an engine supplier to the IZOD IndyCar Series, Honda has scored 204 race victories in both CART and IZOD IndyCar Series competition since 1994, and powered Scott Dixon to a series-high four victories and the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series drivers’ championship.

HPD offers a variety of race engines for track applications from prototype sports cars to karting; and showcases “fun-to-drive” products for professional, amateur and entry-level racers.
