Honda Accord and CR-V are America’s Most Popular Car and SUV with Retail Car Buyers in First Half of 2014; and Honda CR-V Captures the Title of Best-Selling SUV of the Past Decade

  • Retail car buyers choose Accord more than any other car in America1
  • CR-V builds on ten years as the most popular, best-selling SUV in America2
  • Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey each post segment-leading retail results at the halfway mark of 20141

With the Accord and CR-V attracting retail customers in record numbers in the first half of 2014, Honda is again leading the industry with the most popular car and SUV in America, according to a Honda analysis of new-vehicle retail registration data from IHS Automotive. Based on Honda forecasts, the Accord and CR-V are on track to repeat their 2013 full-year results as top picks with U.S. retail car and SUV buyers, while CR-V continues to hold the title as the best-selling SUV in America for more than a decade.

Accord is once again the most popular car in America, with industry-leading sales to individual U.S. car buyers for the first half of 2014, while CR-V is both the retail and outright best-selling SUV based on retail registrations through June 2014, a position it’s held for seven of the past 10 years, culminating in the highest sales of any SUV in America during the past decade. Joining the Accord and CR-V as retail leaders in their segments for the first half of 2014 are the Honda Civic and Odyssey minivan.

Moreover, each of Honda’s four segment-leading models is on target to repeat its retail leadership performance from 2013, despite the fact that Honda has the lowest overall incentive spending among the top seven automakers. Three of the four models – Accord, Civic and CR-V – are each on track to earn sales in excess of 300,000 units for the second consecutive year, with fleet sales in the low single digits, as Honda targets all-time record sales in 2014.

“More individual customers put a new Honda Accord in their driveway in the first half of this year than any other new car in America, and SUV buyers continue to choose CR-V more than any other SUV in America,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “While competitors rely on deep-discounts and sales to corporate and rental fleets, Honda continues to achieve steady and sustainable growth based on the quality and value of our products in the hands of individual customers.”

Honda brand highlights for the first half of 2014 include:

  • Excluding full-size pickups, the Accord, Civic and CR-V continue to hold three of the top five slots – first, third and fourth, respectively – in retail registrations among individual car buyers in the first half of 2014.
  • The Accord, with retail registrations totaling 181,939 units through June, has strengthened its lead over its nearest competitor in the past three months, compared to the first three months of 2014.
  • Retail registrations accounted for 98.2 percent3 of all Accord registrations for the period, according to Honda analysis of IHS Automotive new-vehicle registration data.
  • Civic retail registrations of 160,293 units led all compact cars, increasing its lead over the closest segment competitor, which is now more than 26,000 units, compared to cumulative totals in the first quarter of 2014.
  • CR-V is America’s outright best-selling SUV of this year, and of the past decade. On a retail basis, CR-V registrations rose 6.6 percent to 153,968 units compared to the first half of last year, giving CR-V a more than 27,000-unit lead over the #2 selling vehicle in the segment so far in 2014.
  • Odyssey retail registrations of 62,096 units continue to make it the top choice among retail minivan customers –at 32 percent retail segment share. As a result, Odyssey sales have comprised nearly 1 of every 3 minivans purchased by individual buyers in America in 2014.

Multiple awards, accolades and its top sales position speak to Odyssey’s pinnacle status as the best minivan for families

Powertrain
The 2015 Odyssey features a 3.5-liter, 24-valve V-6 engine producing 248 hp at 5,700 rpm and 250 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. Honda’s i-VTEC® enhances power delivery while Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) helps maximize fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission for EPA fuel-economy ratings of 19/28 mpg3 city/highway and California Air Resources Board (CARB) ULEV-2 emissions certification4.

Body
Refined and youthful, sporty and advanced, the Odyssey’s styling includes premium elements including black-trimmed headlights, available fog lights, a muscular hood, and black-surround grille for an upscale appearance. Body-color matched side mirrors and bright chrome trim add to the premium appearance. Rear styling and LED taillights with clear lenses and eye-catching perimeter “light pipes” add to the polished look.

Lightweight aluminum is used for the hood, front fenders and front suspension lower control arms. The LX model features 17-inch steel wheels with covers, while EX and EX-L models utilize 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels. Touring and Touring Elite models feature 18-inch premium sport aluminum alloy wheels.

The 2015 Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models have a wiper-linked headlight system that automatically turns on the headlights when the front wipers are activated. In addition, standard one-touch turn signals provide convenience for the driver when making routine lane changes. With this system, one flick of the turn-signal lever provides three blinks of the turn signals – ideal for changing lanes. Pressing the lever past the “click point” provides continuous blinking.

A keyless entry system with push button start on EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite allows the driver to approach the vehicle, open the door and start the engine – all without touching a key. The system only requires the driver have possession of the key fob. The system also simplifies opening the sliding side doors and tailgate – locking all doors when leaving the vehicle requires only touching the lock button on any door handle.

Interior
The 2015 Odyssey’s interior is ideal for families, with high-grade meter illumination and interior lighting, chrome-trimmed instrument dials and door handles, an available 7-inch touch-screen, and an ideally positioned DVD player for the available Rear Entertainment System. Sophisticated styling and white halo lighting make the instrumentation easier to read and the climate controls easy to operate.

All 2015 Odyssey models and trim levels include an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. The driver’s side mirror provides a 19-percent increase in visible area, offering an enhanced view of objects that might otherwise be hidden in the vehicle’s blind spot. Included on Odyssey EX, EX-L and Touring models, the Honda LaneWatch™ display provides an expanded rear view of the passenger side roadway. The system uses a camera mounted on the bottom of the passenger door mirror, which when activated by the right turn signal or the signal-stalk LaneWatch™ button, displays a live, 80-degree view of the passenger-side roadway, compared to 18- to 22-degrees typical of a standard door mirror.

A rearview camera is standard on all Odyssey models. Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L models feature a single-angle “Normal View” display, while EX-L Navi, Touring and Touring Elite models have a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with wide, normal and top-down views – all with improved optical quality. All rearview camera systems feature guidelines.

HondaVAC™
The Odyssey Touring Elite features the first minivan in-vehicle vacuum cleaner system, HondaVac™ which is designed to help families keep the minivan interior neat and clean. Engineered for dry use, the HondaVAC™ operates on the vehicle’s 12-volt electrical system, and its performance easily surpasses that of a handheld rechargeable vacuums.

Integrated in the rear cargo area of the vehicle, the HondaVAC™ includes an extendable hose that can reach every interior corner of the vehicle. Two separate head attachments expand versatility, while a removable debris canister and replaceable filter bag makes maintaining the vacuum easy. To protect the vehicle battery’s state of charge, the HondaVAC™ runs up to eight minutes when the vehicle’s ignition is in Accessory mode – or continuously if the engine is running.

Audio, Connectivity & Rear Entertainment
Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models have intuitive touch panel controls that reduce button clutter on the center stack. An upper 8-inch display and a lower 7-inch display provide a simpler overall interface improving usability of multiple features at one time (i.e. phone and audio. navigation and audio, etc.).

When paired to a compatible cellular phone, Aha™ and Pandora® interfaces are available on EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models. XM® Radio is included in EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models, a HDD audio system comes on the EX-L Navi, Touring and Touring Elite models, and a rear DVD player is standard in EX-L RES, Touring and Touring Elite models.

HandsFreeLink® is included on all models, and Bluetooth® audio streaming, SMS and email functions are available with compatible smartphones. Additional features include a phonebook, call history, speed dial and contact picture. Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite include HondaLink™ featuring Aha™ which offers content from hundreds of channels through a tethered compatible smartphone.

The Rear Entertainment System (RES) on the EX-L RES, Touring and Touring Elite models features an intuitive control layout and high screen quality. This system features ideal placement of the DVD player and intuitive operation for the rear audio controls. Screen resolution is VGA on EX-L RES and Touring models, and the Touring Elite’s higher grade ultra-widescreen offers increased resolution.

Safety Equipment & Performance
The Odyssey utilizes the next-generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and makes extensive use of high-strength steel in the A-, B- and C-pillars, roof rails, floor rails, front body area, and front subframe. This results in a very strong front door opening with less chance of deformation in a frontal collision.

Advanced driver-assistive technologies available on the Odyssey include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). Using the Odyssey’s front camera module, FCW warns of a possible collision with a vehicle detected in front, while LDW notifies the driver of departures from detected lanes5. The two systems are packaged together on Odyssey EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models, and provide visual and audible warnings.

North American Development and Manufacturing
The Odyssey was designed in Los Angeles, engineered at Honda R&D America’s in Ohio and is manufactured6 by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, Alabama.

American Honda Reports June 2014 Sales-Increases All-Around!

  • Honda Civic and Accord post sales of more than 32,000 each in June for increases of 8.7 and 2.1 percent respectively
  • Honda CR-V posts best-ever 6-month sales performance with a gain of 6.1 percent YTD
  • Total Acura truck sales were up 6.1 percent in June
  • Acura MDX claims best-ever 6-month sales performance with an increase of 68.4 percent

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported June 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 129,023 units. The Honda division posted sales of 117,817 units in June while Acura sold 11,206 units in the same period. Year-to-date American Honda sales reached 739,436 units.

Honda
Honda’s core models—Accord, Civic and CR-V—continue to set the retail pace through the first half of 2014, with the Civic up 8.7 percent and Accord increasing 2.1 percent in June. However, retail consumers appeared to take a breath last month coupled with an unusually short number of selling days, the shortest June in five years.

  • Bucking a recent market shift toward SUVs, Civic is up 8.7 percent in June and 5.3 percent for the first six months of 2014—its best such period in a decade
  • Accord sales rise 2.1 percent in June
  • CR-V, the industry’s most popular SUV, posted a year-to-date gain of 6.1 percent for its best-ever 6-month sales performance
  • Despite low inventory as supply ramps up, the all-new 2015 Fit is driving new traffic at Honda dealerships

“Despite an easing of the pace in June, the larger sales trend throughout the industry remains robust,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. “Our core products remain strong and though we’re still filling its supply pipeline, the new 2015 Fit is selling very well and we expect it to add yet another strong pillar to Honda sales in the near future.”

Acura
Overall Acura sales continue to reflect the decreasing supply of TL and TSX models as the company prepares for launch of the 2015 TLX line of luxury performance sedans later this summer. With an unprecedented first half of the year, MDX and RDX continue to sell at a near record pace, pushing Acura truck sales up 6.1 percent for the month.

  • Acura truck sales rise 6.1 percent in June
  • MDX June sales rose 27.7 percent on sales of 4,890 units
  • Posting its best-ever six-month sales performance, the Acura MDX led the division with sales of 30,644 units, an increase 68.4 percent over last year

“The MDX and RDX had a stellar first half of the year, certainly a good indicator that the Acura brand is moving in a strong direction,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “While we expected the reduced supply of sedans to impact sales this summer, the upcoming launch of the all-new 2015 TLX lineup heralds a new era for the Acura brand.”

Honda to Discontinue Fit EV, Insight Vehicles

Honda announced that after 2014, the Honda Fit EV will no longer be manufactured and the Honda Insight will only be available at dealerships through the end of the year.

While we’re sad to hear that the Honda Fit EV and Insight won’t be very available much longer, we’re excited to hear that it’s because Honda is concentrating on other electric and hybrid technologies!

According to this article, “”Our path forward includes a new generation of electromotive technologies, including expanded application of our two-motor hybrid system,” said Sage Marie, American Honda spokesman, regarding the news.

The two-motor hybrid system is in the Honda Accord Plug-in and Honda Accord Hybrid. Based on consumer and critic reviews of these models, we think is very forward-thinking and wise of Honda to concentrate on expanding on this technology. Almost everyone raves about the gas mileage and performance of the Honda Accord Plug-In and Honda Accord Hybrid, so we think with Honda putting most of it’s attention on that will only make it better!

What do you think? Are you excited for Honda to focus on this technology?

2014 Honda Civic Si is Fun!

Honda is known for building reliable, dependable, and high-value vehicles. The word fun generally isn’t one that comes to the forefront when describing Honda vehicles.

The 2014 Honda Civic Si is on a mission to change all that.

“The 2014 Honda Civic Si is just plain fun to drive,” said Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “It’s quick, it’s nimble, and it’s the only model in it’s class available with a manual transmission. And that can mean some real fun for people who know what they’re doing. The 2014 model has more horsepower and more torque; it goes zero to 60 in just over six seconds.”

The 2014 Honda Civic Si comes in either coupe or sedan style. Like the writers of this article, we really like the sedan because it means more people (like small families) can enjoy the Civic Si, but certainly the coupe is just right for many people.

And the sedan style doesn’t sacrifice performance, at all. “Outfitted with one of the slickest shifting six-speed manuals in the business—the only transmission available on the Si—the new sedan proved a delight…”

Not only is it fun to drive, but unlike other “fun” vehicles, the 2014 Honda Civic Si get excellent gas mileage;  47 on the highway and 44 in the city. Saving money on gasoline is fun, right? In fact, the Civic Si is so fun, that the writers of the article picked it as their favorite Civic model. The bottom line for them: “While the Civic offers something for a wide range of buyers, our vote goes to the delightful Si that offers the combination of a fun-to-drive sports sedan and the practicality of a family hauler.”

2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Makes it Hard to Empty the Gas Tank

The 2014 Honda Accord comes in several  models, including the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in which wows owners because of its advanced technology that means you’re stopping for gas far less than any of your neighbors.

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in lets you do both like no other vehicle on the market.”

Depending on your range and/or performance needs, there are three ways to drive the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in: electric only, hybrid and fuel-only modes.

According to this article, “For example, even with some long trips added, the test car averaged 54.1 miles per gallon with a mix of all-electric driving plus city/highway on the gasoline engine. In fact, the federal government’s www.fueleconomy.gov website estimated the tester would only need to stop at the gas station about nine times in a year if driven at its current pattern.”

“If your highest priority is the amount of gasoline your vehicle consumes, then you need to come check out the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in,” said Hofkamp.

2014 Honda Civic Si is “Huge Bargain”

What makes the 2014 Honda Civic Si such a great performance vehicle?

  • A high level chassis
  • Manual gearbox
  • “Soft engagement”
  • “The engine revs freely to deliver rich power, but has sufficient oomph to avoid embarrassing you in slug-along traffic. Its real-world fuel consumption under our heavy foot is modest: 20.2 mpg in the suburbs, 35.1 mpg on the highway.”

“The Honda Civic Si is just a fun car to drive,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “If you’re looking for a smaller, sportier car that will really give you some bang for your buck, you can’t pass up a test drive in the 2014 Si.”

The writer of this article has a problem with polls, but doesn’t have any problem with Honda being the brand of the year because “the all new Honda Accord and Civic are the # 1 selling cars in their respective segment ; there’s a reason for that: Consistent quality, price, performance and both hold the highest (resale) residual value in the industry.”
