Honda Tops All Other Automakers in Four Main Categories

2013 Honda Accord

TORRANCE, California, July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Honda topped all mainstream automakers in percentage of sales to retail buyers during the first five months of 2013, with more than 98 percent[1] of the brand’s auto sales in the U.S. sold to individual (non-fleet) consumers, based on new-vehicle registration data from R.L. Polk & Co. With a strong focus on providing long-term value and low cost of ownership to its customers, the Honda brand has increased sales by 6.5 percent in 2013 with 668,597 Honda cars and light trucks finding new homes through the end of June.

Honda’s four best-selling models, Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey, lead their respective segments[2] in sales to retail consumers. Together, these segments represent more than 50 percent of all light-duty vehicle sales in the United States.

“We’re earning our sales growth on the strength of our products and the value they deliver to individual car buyers,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our strategy is unique among volume automakers, as we are focused on selling vehicles to individual car buyers and not corporate sales to fleets, which is why Honda vehicles have among the lowest cost of ownership and highest resale values in the industry.”

In the highly competitive mid-size segment, where Accord leads retail sales, many high-volume entrants have sold in excess of 30 percent[1] of their vehicles to fleet customers thus far in 2013 while over 98 percent[1] of Accords were sold to individuals (non-fleet). The 2013 Accord is the most-awarded[3] mid-size car when it comes to value.

“Honda continues to deliver on the promise that made them the Residual Value Award recipient for 2013,” said Eric Lyman, vice president of Editorial for ALG. “Honda keeps incentives and fleet penetration low – two actions that heavily impact future values. With high volume models like Accord and CR-V at the top of their respective segments, Hondas hold their value better than any other brand.”

According to Honda analysis of Polk new-vehicle registration data, more than 19 percent[1] of light-duty vehicle industry sales so far this year have been to non-retail customers such as rental-car companies, corporate and government fleet operations, most at steeply discounted prices compared to the average retail transaction price. Discounts on large volumes of vehicles can have a long-term negative impact on the residual or resale values of vehicles purchased at retail. This effectively increases the cost-of-ownership for retail buyers when they eventually sell or trade-in their vehicles.

Honda Civic Tourer Will Have Rear-only Damping

Honda is leading the way by introducing the first rear-only Adaptive Damper System on the new CivicTourer.

According to this article, “While active damping systems have been deployed for a number of years, this marks first use of such a system for the rear only in a production model. Honda told Autocar that using a rear-only setup delivers 80% of the functionality of a fully adaptive chassis at half the cost.

“This system features three settings—comfort, normal and dynamic—all of which have been developed to enhance stability and comfort under the varying load and driving conditions that the Civic Tourer is likely to experience.

“The Tourer is due to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2013, before being launched in early 2014.”

We are excited to see the 2014 Honda Civic Tourer unveiled this fall, but we are really anxious to see how the rear-only damping performs!

Kelley Blue Book and editors at KBB.com announced that the 2013 Honda Accord is the best all-around sedan. At same time, KBB.com also announced the 2013 Honda Civic is the best new compact car. We can’t really add much to what the news release said, so here it is in it’s entirety.

I guess we could add, Woo hoo!

“The 2013 Honda Accord and Civic were named to KBB.com’s list of the 10 Best New Sedans Under $25,000. The Honda Accord was the top ranked vehicle on the list of new vehicles introduced in 2013 compiled by the auto experts at KBB.com. The Civic was the highest rated compact car on the list.

Additionally, Accord earns industry-leading safety scores, having been rated a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and distinguished by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score1.

“While other mid-size cars have threatened its dominance, now we can definitively say that the Accord is back on top, with the completely overhauled 2013 model hitting No. 1 on our list of the ’10 Best Sedans Under $25,000′,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “The latest Honda Accord is as refined as any previous edition, but with a newfound sense of sporty style and cool new technologies that are as user-friendly as the car itself.”

2012 Honda Civic Gets Praise from MotorWeek

Much has been written about why the 2012 Honda Civic was redesigned so quickly. Like this blogger, some say it was because it was “so bad.” However, bloggers like him seem to miss the point that it was still the best selling compact car in the U.S. last year. And usually consumers know the difference between bad and good cars.

That being said, expectations were set high for the 2012 Honda Civic and some critics were disappointed. However, the folks at MotorWeek were not as evidenced by this video calling the 2012 Honda Civic energy smart and stating it is “excellence evolved.”

This critic notes that while the actual size of the car was smaller, the interior of the 2012 Honda Civic actually grew, among other positive features, including incredible gas mileage that the Honda Civic is renowned for. While the 2013 Honda Civic is an incredible redesign, the 2012 Honda Civic is still available at many Honda dealerships and, because of that quick redesign, available at an even better value.

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda to see if there are any great deals on the 2012 Honda Civic…new or used!

 

Honda Civic Tourer Specs!

At first this article confused me. Yes, I figured out they meant ‘trunk’ where they used boot, but only because my mum is Canadian and I had to have that explained to me several times when visiting family.

But it still threw me off every time I read it, which was a lot because the Honda Civic Tourer has a huge boot…er…trunk!

This article has some great details about the new Honda Civic Tourer set to debut in Europe this September (no word about the U.S.), but mostly the pictures of it caught my attention. Drivers could do a lot of stuff with a Honda Civic with a trunk that big! Perfect for “dog owners and towing.”

A Honda Civic towing? Yes!

With as much as Americans love the Honda Civic, it would only make sense to have this Honda Civic Tourer available here, too…right?

Right! :)

Honda Civic to Get Earth Dreams Engine

The state-of-the-art Earth Dreams engine developed by Honda will soon have a new home: the ever-popular Honda Civic.

Really, this announcement makes perfect sense. The Honda Civic is one of the most efficient, gasoline friendly cars on the roads and the Earth Dreams engine, a direct-injection engine, further increases the fuel economy of any car.

This is a great announcement and people are always looking for cars with the best fuel economy, so I thought it was interesting that it sounded like Honda was having to defend its decision by saying, “”Gasoline prices are stabilizing in the mid-$3-a-gallon range, and Detroit is selling quite a few pickups,” Iwamura said. “Yet while the average person sees those numbers, their income hasn’t risen that much. It’s wrong to say Americans don’t care about fuel economy. They care.”

Uh, yeah. WE CARE!

It looks like the revolutionary Earth Dreams engine should be installed in the 2015 Honda Civic. We’ll look forward to that!

Honda Civic Si Transformed Into a Race Car: Video

We were intrigued by this short video that transforms your regular 2012 Honda Civic Si into a race car on the biggest stage. Because of the length of the video, I thought it would be a relatively easy process.

Well, it’s not exactly easy.

But it isvery interesting. And I’m not even a take-the-car-apart-and-put-it-back-together kind of gal.

If you want to see how a regular Honda Civic Si goes from normal commuter car to racing machine, check out this short documentary. It’s pretty cool.

Three Video Reviews of 2013 Honda Civic

We love video reviews. Why? Because it’s more fun to watch a review than read it and it’s really helpful to see what the reviewer is talking about as the video shows us. So, we were tickled when we found this article with three different reviews of the 2013 Honda Civic.

The consensus? The 2013 Honda Civic is even better than the 2012 Honda Civic, which was one of the best-selling cars of 2011. You owe it yourself to check out the “fun to drive” 2013 Honda Civic if you need a compact car or love the Civic.

“The 2013 Honda Civic is one of the most popular cars we have,” said Keith Hofkamp of Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “It’s compact, great gas mileage, drives really responsively and is fun!”

2013 Honda Civic is Safest Small Car on the Road

The 2013 Honda Civic the only compact car to receive the top safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

According to this article, “The 2013 Civic Sedan recently received the top 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), and the highest possible rating of Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS, including a top score of Good in the new small overlap frontal collision test. Honda said it leads all automakers with every one of its tested model year 2013 vehicles earning a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.”

To repeat, the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe are the only small cars to receive these prestigious safety ratings.

“Some people get a little anxious about owning and driving small cars because there are so many BIG cars on the road and there’s a real concern about safety,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager of Sims Honda at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “However Honda’s dedication to safety shines through with these new safety awards for the Honda Civic. Drivers don’t need to be worry about their safety when they’re driving a Honda Civic!”

Honda reinforced its frame, which allowed it pass the new off-set frontal crash that simulates a collision on the front corners of the car.

“Car shoppers cannot find a small car with higher overall safety ratings than the 2013 Honda Civic,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Safety ratings leadership across product lines is a fundamental part of not only our strategic business plan, but also our philosophy as a company.”

Cars.com Video Review of 2013 Honda Civic

We love video reviews. It’s so much better to see the features critics are talking about. We really love this review of the 2013 Honda Civic by Cars.com because Cars.com is very respected and it’s not at all critical of the much improved 2013 Honda Civic.

Check out the 5 minute video review of the 2013 Honda Civic by Cars.com.

The only negative thing Cars.com had to say about the 2013 Honda Civic in this video review is that the hubcaps of the LX trim do not quite work because you can see the metal tire behind it (something that is easily fixed, as pointed out in the video).

Here are the highlights you’ll want to know:

  • There are significant features that come standard on every model, including text message reading, back up camera, Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone integration, and more! And, as the reviewer pointed out, all these features, even in the base model, are executed well and are high quality.
  • All the features described above work well and are easy to sync up with your smartphone (if it’s compatible). In fact, it’s easier to sync up your smartphone with the 2013 Honda Civic than any other car.
  • The 2013 Honda Civic is safer. It has a new front subframe, which helped it earn the presitigious ’Top Safety Plus’ rating.
  • The Honda Civic regained its “fun to drive character” with new suspension which made makes it “more composed.”
  • The 2013 Honda Civic is still a “big compact car” with lots of space in the back for passengers.
