Honda Claims 2 of Top 10 Hottest Selling Cars in U.S.

The Honda Civic and Honda Accord cracked the top ten of the hottest selling cars according to this article from AOL Autos.

The Honda Accord ranked fifth overall selling more than 36,000 cars just in the month of March!

“The 2013 Honda Accord is a hit,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington, Washington. “And for good reason. The technology you get standard with even the base model of the 2013 Honda Accord is really impressive. All models come with the backup camera and LaneWatch (blind spot) camera in addition to some other really great features. It drives great and, of course, it gets impressive Honda gas mileage. Really, it’s no surprise the 2013 Honda Accord is flying off lots.”

Also, helping the 2013 Honda Accord get major sales is the fact that it starts at just around $20,000. It gets an estimated 24 city/34 highway mpgs.

The Honda Civic drove in at number 10 on the Hottest Selling Cars list moving almost 28,000 vehicles off dealership lots last month.

“The 2013 Honda Civic is a great commuter car,” Hofkamp said. “It gets 28 mpgs with city driving and 36 mpgs on the highway. It’s a great, compact car at a great price.”

The 2013 Honda Civic starts at just around $18,000.

For your chance to check out two of the best-selling cars in the country, stop by Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, or Northwest Honda dealership today to take the 2013 Honda Accord or 2013 Honda Civic for a test drive!

Honda Accord, Civic Most Stolen Cars

The Honda Accord and Honda Civic are the top two most stolen and recovered vehicles in 2012 in the United States, according to a new LoJack Corp. study.

This is the Honda Accord’s third year at the #1 spot. The Honda Civic moved up to the #2 spot and the Toyota Camry fell to #3.

Why are the Honda Accords and Honda Civics the most stolen? It’s not that complicated, according to the writer of this article:

“The reason these cars top the list is an obvious one — these are popular models. But D.J. Thompson, director of law enforcement at LoJack, tells me that these cars aren’t just on the top of the list because there are more of them on the road than most other makes and models.”

Basically, Honda makes awesome cars, so more people buy them, which means more people steal them because there is a bigger market.

“It’s true, the Honda Accord and Honda Civic are some of the most stolen vehicle, but only because it they are two of the best and, therefore, most popular vehicles, on the road,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda in Apple Valley. “In a way, it’s rather flattering.”

I guess there is a dark side to being some of the best-selling cars in the market. But should that scare people away? The writer of the article has experience with this exact issue when his own 1997 Honda Civic was stolen and here’s what he said:

“So did I abandon Honda for a less innocuous brand? Nope. They’re reliable, efficient. I’m comfortable with them. But my new car is a Honda Fit. At least that model’s not on LoJack’s top 10 list ­— yet.”

That’s right, Honda’s reliability and efficiency keep this loyal customer coming back even after he’s had a taste of the dark side of popularity.

Drive a Honda, Use the HOV Lane

A new report stated that Honda makes the most cars that can legally drive in California’s HOV lanes with only a driver in the vehicle.

Why? Because Honda makes the most gosh-darn environmentally friendly vehicles.

According to the California Air Resources Board, Honda makes four vehicles that meet its air quality standards to be eligible to use the carpool lane even when there’s only one occupant. The four vehicles are:

  • The Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid. The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid sedan has a EPA driving range of 570 miles with an EPA rating of 115 MPGe, a standard used to measure the combined efficiency of an electric vehicle.
  • The Honda Civic Natural Gas. The 2012 Civic Natural Gas (CNG) has an EPA of 31 MPG.
  • The Honda Fit EV, which has an EPA rating of 118 MPGe with an EPA driving range of 82 miles.
  • The FCX Clarity, which has a EPA rating of 60 MPEe with an EPA driving range of 240 miles.

This article points out that using the HOV lane in California can shave 30 minutes off your commute where a ten mile drive can often take 30 to 40 minutes. That is DEFINITELY something we can relate to if you’ve ever hit Seattle traffic during rush hour or there is an accident in one of the two through lanes in downtown Seattle. The HOV lane is your friend in the Puget Sound area!

“The average annual five year fuel savings of the Honda Accord Plug-In, Honda Civic CNG and Honda Fit EV is about $7,783.  The fuel savings for the FCX Clarity haven’t been released.”

If you care about the environment, saving money and getting around faster (sounds pretty good right?), then be sure to stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda, or Northwest Honda dealerships today. Not all of these vehicles may be available in Washington state yet, but no doubt any of them would make a big difference in your life and your budget.

2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Raises the Bar

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In is the latest and greatest in the Honda lineup with some very impressive specs that should alleviate most people’s concerns about owning a plug-in.

For example, some people worry about having to leave the car plugged in all day in order to take it for a short drive. The Honda Accord Plug-in only takes 3 hours to completely charge on a 120-volt outlet and only 1 hour on a 240-volt outlet.  Consumers also worry about the range of a plug-in vehicle (no one wants to go for a drive and run out of a charge), but the Honda Accord Plug-in can go almost 600 miles!

Another comforting fact is that the Honda Accord Plug-In is, well, still an Accord with all of the dependability, technology and comforts you expect from an Accord.

Check out this great and informative video about the Honda Accord Plug-In.

2013 Honda Accord’s Technology Makes it a “Contender”

The performance, design, and overall quality of the 2013 Honda Accord has been well-documented by critics and consumers alike, but this reviewer sums up much of the success of the 2013 Honda Accord in one word: technology. Here’s what he had to say about some of his favorite technological features of the 2013 Honda Accord:

LaneWatch: “Instead of a simple blind spot warning light in the right exterior mirrror, Honda has a camera that SHOWS you what’s behind there. The camera displays its image on the “navi” screen, so as soon as you turn on your right turn signal, a video shows the road behind you on the right fading away. Of course, if there’s something in that vicinity, you’ll see that, too…The left outside rearview mirror has a split mirror with a more convex surface on the outer edge, again acting like a blind spot monitor. At first, I thought the convexity wasn’t enough, but it proved to be just right.”

Center console cameras: “There are two screens in the center of the dash; one for the navigation system (and back-up camera and blind spot monitor) and one for audio. If you aren’t using the top screen, it becomes a second audio screen.”

Green driving: “The best aid to green driving, however, is the speedometer surround. In normal mode, it is white, but when you start driving more economically, it turns green. Like many of these features, it almost becomes a game trying to keep it green.”

We agree that the technology included standard in all trims of the 2013 Honda Accord is what sets it apart from all other midsize sedans. That’s right, every trim comes with LaneWatch technology and a backup camera because Honda thinks that every driver should have technology to be safer.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda today to see for yourself all the technology that the 2013 Honda Accord has to offer you!

 

 

2013 Honda Fit Wins Two “Best Car for the Money” Awards from U.S. News & World Report

The Honda Fit is one of Honda’s most popular vehicles, quickly gaining on the likes of the Civic and Accord. With two new awards from U.S. News & World Report, the 2013 Honda Fit will likely continue with its upward trend.

U.S. News & World Report awarded the 2013 Honda Fit as “Best Subcompact for the Money” and “Best Hatchback for the Money” beating out other popular models by Toyota, Subaru, and all other major manufacturers.

“The Fit brings truth to the concept that big things can come in small packages,” said Mike Accavitti , vice president of national marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With an amazingly roomy interior, snappy styling, great driving dynamics and industry-leading Honda quality, Fit proves that small cars can provide value well beyond their size.”

The gas mileage, space, and Honda dependability has made the Honda Fit not just popular with experts and critics, but also with the average buyer.

“Lots of people come to Sims Honda thinking they either want an Accord or a CR-V,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “But they end up driving away in a Honda Fit after they get in and realize it has a lot of space, gets awesome gas mileage and has a very versatile interior. It has almost 91 cubic feet of passenger space and 21 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row of seats! And it comfortably seats five people…unless you want to fold down the seats flat to utilize that space.”

According to the press release, “…the exclusive 60/40 split rear Magic Seat® offers multiple seating and cargo-carrying configurations. With its one-motion dive-down functionality, it can fold flat into the floor to provide a maximum 57.3 cu-ft. of rear cargo volume. Compared to any other vehicle in the subcompact class, the five-passenger Fit provides the lowest, flattest cargo floor and the most cargo volume. The Fit’s interior thus can easily be converted to tall-object mode or long-object mode based on the shape of the cargo.

Here are some of the other awards earned by the 2013 Honda Fit

  • A “Top Safety Pick” rating by the IIHS
  • A 2013 Residual Value Award from ALG
  • A 2013 Best Resale Value Award from KBB.com
  • Recognized as a “greener choice of 2013″ by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE)
  • A seven-time Car and Driver magazine “10Best Cars” award winner

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda or Apple Valley Honda dealerships to check out the award-winning (many times over) 2013 Honda Fit. You may think you want an Accord or CR-V, but don’t walk off the lot until you’ve taken the 2013 Honda Fit for a test drive and visualized your family and your stuff in its spacious passenger and cargo space.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe Only Vehicle in its Class to Earn 5-Star Safety Rating

We have written a lot about the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and 2013 Honda Accord Coupe because there is a lot to write about. So this blog doesn’t become the “Honda Accord” blog, we try only to write when there’s really something worth writing about.

Well, the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe has done it again, and this is definitely newsworthy: it is the only vehicle in its class to earn a NHTSA (National Highway Traffic and Safety Association) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety! The Accord Sedan also earned this rating, but the Accord Coupe was the only one its class to be award the 5-star rating.

“This is a big deal,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda. “To be the only one at anything is a big deal, but for the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe to be the only coupe that earned 5 stars for safety is a big accomplishment. Honda prides itself on designing and manufacturing safe vehicles. Hopefully, this will give people one more reason to take a look at the new Accord Coupe, besides its incredible performance.”

The 2013 Honda Accord Coupe earned the Overall award by garnering a 5-star rating in “each seating position in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) front, side-barrier, and side-pole crash test categories, as well as a 5-star rollover rating.”

“The Honda comprehensive approach to vehicle safety is validated by these top-level safety ratings,” said Art St. Cyr , vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “The 2013 Honda Accord truly excels in all areas, delivering the best overall safety ratings, while also providing exhilarating performance, outstanding comfort and top-class fuel economy.”

According to the press release: “Beginning with the 2013 Honda Accord, Honda is applying the second generation of the Honda Advanced Compatibility Engineering(ACEII) body structure to its models. This reinforced frontal structure further enhances frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes.”

This is in addition to other Honda safety innovations like the LaneWatch technology that allows drivers to better see their blind spot.

2013 Honda Accord Beats Out 2013 Nissan Altima

Culturemap.com did a great side-by-side comparison of the 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Nissan Altima. It’s one of the best comparisons I’ve seen because 1) it includes lots of pictures 2) it’s a slide show where the points for and against each are short and sweet.

We will skip the tit-for-tat and get you straight to the point: “The Altima and Accord are two familiar faces in a changing sedan world. Both are excellent all-rounders, but the Honda model wins this one—a combination of smoothness, functionality, and greater efficiency put the more business-like Accord ahead.”

That’s right, the 2013 Honda Accord beats out the 2013 Nissan Altima.

Ok, now for the details and highlights:

  • The Nissan Altima has a spacious trunk at 15.4 cubic feet…but the Honda Accord is even bigger with 15.8 cubic feet.
  • “The killer feature of the Accord is LaneWatch, a camera aimed at the passenger side of the car that shows the car’s blind spot on the screen in the center. It works brilliantly because it’s so intuitive—flick the right turn signal, and the screen illuminates with a wide-angle view of the space beyond your normal field of vision.”
  • “The Altima has a ludicrously terrible turning radius—hope that you never have to make a U-turn.” If you have to hope you never need to make a U-turn, that doesn’t sound like an “all-purpose” vehicle.
  • The Honda Accord has an EPA-rating of 21/34 mpg (the Altima has an EPA-rating of 22/30)
  • The Honda Accord’s 3.5 liter V6 engine is noticeably smoother.

Check out the complete slideshow HERE for all the details about why the 2013 Honda Accord is better than the 2013 Nissan Altima.

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.
