Honda Leads the Pack with Six Top Safety Pick+ Ratings

If numbers don’t lie, then we can honestly say that Honda vehicles are the safest vehicles on the road. Honda leads all other automakers with six Top Safety Pick+ ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Honda Odyssey is the only minivan to be given this safety rating.

Two other models earned the second highest rating of Top Safety Pick.

There is a lot to be proud of here, so below is the complete press release from Honda:

  • Two models also named TOP SAFETY PICK, next highest rating
  • More challenging  IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ testing standards require vehicles to offer collision warning technology

A total of six Honda and Acura models, the most of any auto maker, received the highest possible safety rating of TOP 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 the TOP 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 a 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 is the only Automaker on TheWeeklyDriver.com’s Top 10 List for 2013

As many other websites are doing, TheWeeklyDriver.com has released a list of its top ten cars for 2013. Honda is the only automaker that had two of its vehicles make the list.

Check out the article here.

The Honda to make their list was the new Honda Accord. Their review in brief? “Who would have thought a Honda Accord would be a luxury car? Think no more. It is.”

The next Honda on the list was the Honda Odyssey. What they had to say in brief: “All the stigma soccer moms and van pool types have against minivans is no longer relevant. The Honda Odyssey is a high-end sedan, really, masquerading as a large, aggressive, powerful people mover that easily seats seven.”

There are links from the article to entire review of each vehicle, but we think this a pretty good start.

“Both the Accord and the Odyssey have really broken the molds of their respective segments,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Really, the Accord has set a new standard for affordable sedans and the Odyssey has been called the “modern minivan,” so it’s really great that they both made this list.”

2014 Honda CR-V Earns Many Awards

The 2014 Honda CR-V definitely stands out in a crowded market of quality crossovers. It’s just not just us who think the 2014 Honda CR-V is something pretty special. Here are some of the awards the 2014 Honda CR-V has racked up:

  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score
  • A 2013 Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)
  • It has also garnered awards and accolades from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com, U.S. News & World Report

“The CR-V model lineup carries over for 2014, starting with the remarkably well-equipped CR-V LX with standard one-pull fold-flat rear seats, cruise control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, air conditioning, rearview camera, 160-watt 4-speaker audio system with Pandora interface (with compatible smartphones) and more.

“The CR-V EX, the most popular trim, adds premium features including a power moonroof, upgraded 6-speaker audio system and 17-inch alloy wheels. Building from there, the EX-L adds a leather-trimmed interior, a 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with XM Radio and much more. Also available on the CR-V EX-L are a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic, or a DVD Rear Entertainment System. Real Time AWD (all-wheel drive) is available on all models.”

We think the 2014 Honda CR-V deserves every award and more.

“The crossover segment is truly one of the most competitive in the industry,” said  Tony Carter, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “All of these awards and others really put the 2014 Honda CR-V at the top of its class. There are some great crossovers out there, but the 2014 Honda CR-V is the best CR-V and the best crossover.”

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.”

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.

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.

New Toyota Tacoma Recalled for Engine Flaw

Toyota announced that it is recalling the 2013-2014 Toyota Tacoma for a serious engine problem.

According to this article, “According to a bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some of those vehicles may suffer from an engine flaw that could cause the Tacoma to stall in traffic — or worse.”

It’s a small number of vehicles affected by the recall built in couple months, less than 4,000 vehicles, but is a safety concern.

“The problem stems from improperly built valve springs in the Tacoma’s engine. Over time, wear and tear may cause the springs to break, and if that happens while a vehicle is being driven, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of an accident.”

Honda Ridgeline Best Truck for Winter Driving

When we think of safe vehicles for driving in winter conditions (you know, snow, ice, cold rain, etc.), our minds often go to trucks. They are big, they are safe (and also good at pulling smaller cars out of ditch), but not all trucks are created equal when it comes to driving in winter weather.

In fact, this writer for Torquenews.com declared that the “Honda Ridgeline Outperforms Chevy, Dodge 4×4 in winter driving conditions.”

According to this writer, “I followed one for a few miles on Monday and was amazed by its obvious exceptional handling as well as skid and slip-free starting and stopping. Both, without the benefit of snow cables or chains…Honda’s success in superior off-road, snow and muddy condition ride and handling comes via the Ridgeline’s exclusive (VTM-4) Variable Torque Management 4 wheel drive system and lock control. No one else in the industry has it. The aforementioned allows the driver by the push of a button to lock the rear differential for up to 18 mph in forward or reverse. No one else in the industry offers this system as a standard feature on a light truck. Stuck in the snow, bogged in the mud, Ridgeline will work its way out of the hole.”

That’s some pretty high praise from a reliable source: the Honda Ridgeline outperforms other trucks in winter driving. And here in the Pacific Northwest we’ve already had our fair share of winter conditions with temperatures in the teens and snow throughout the region.

There won’t be any new Honda Ridgelines for two years, so if you want to check out the 2014 Honda Ridgeline for your winter driving needs, stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership before they are all gone!
