Honda Recreates Historic Lap

We know this is not a Honda racing blog, but we’ve come across article like this so much the past couple weeks that we felt we wouldn’t be doing our job as proponents of everything Honda if we didn’t help spread the word about this amazing tribute to an amazing racer.

This sums up the commercial/tribute nicely, “In 1989, the incredible Ayrton Senna completed a lap of the Japanese F1 circuit, smashing a world record in the process. On board was Honda’s engine telemetry system which recorded a bunch of information from the car. Now, almost a decade after his death, Honda is using that same data, along with some giant speakers and lights to recreate that incredible lap in a flurry of noise. This is a beautiful tribute.”

Check out the article for a video of the touching tribute and historic lap

2013 Honda CR-Z: The First Mainstream Sporty Hybrid

In this article, the writer proposes that the 2013 Honda CR-Z is the solution to those who want a sport vehicle (which Honda is known and loved for) and meeting the world’s requirement of more eco-friendly vehicles.

And it seems to be a slam dunk, home run, touchdown, and (insert your sports analogy here) because “…the CR-Z delivers a really cracking driving experience.”

What seems to make the Honda CR-Z so cracking? It “utilizes Macpherson-strut suspension at the front end over the more performance-oriented double-wishbone suspension, is packed with safety features and electronic aids and all, that, to the hardcore enthusiast, seemingly adulterates the driving experience.”

It also doesn’t hurt that the 2013 Honda CR-Z has a 130-hp engine, 144-volt lithium ion battery, increased torque, and Honda’s amazing 6-speed manual transmission.

“Honda’s manual transmissions have always been the best and the CR-Z’s six-speed self-shifter is sniper-rifle precise, a real joy to row through and feel the snickety-snick of the gears.”

And you don’t need to be worried about any kind of weird, hybrid drivability. In fact, “it drives just like a sports car.”

As with any Honda, you can also expect the best safety features. “As expected of any modern car, the CR-Z is loaded with safety features: six airbags up front with curtain bags that span the length of the cabin, ABS-EBD brakes with Brake Assist and Stability/Traction control as standard. There’s also a lot of small details such as the drilled aluminum pedals and aluminum shiftknob for the 6-speed manual, the slots on the front seats which technically mean you can sling in a couple of four-point clubman harnesses for some track time/amateur racing activities, and the LED daytime running lamps which give a touch of class and sophistication for this modern-day lightweight warrior.”

Check out the complete, raving article about the 2013 Honda CR-Z for more details about the first mainstream hybrid sports car!

 

 

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 Accord Hybrid Arriving in October!

So you might already know this, but we saw this brief article and got all excited about the arrival of the Honda Accord Hybrid in October to Honda dealerships like Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda.

“We are extremely excited about the Honda Accord Hybrid,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “We have seen a rise in demand for hybrid vehicles. People really want Honda to offer more in this area because they know Honda and they trust Honda. They especially trust the Accord, so for the Accord to offered as a hybrid, we expect it to do really well.”

According to this article, “In the Hybrid application, Honda rates the Accord at 4.8 l/100 km in the city and 5.2 on the highway. This time around, however, the electric motor will be mated to a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, unlike the previous Accord Hybrid, which saw a V6 instead.”

We are so excited.

Eeeeek! :)

Review: Honda CR-V is Fun, Functional

We love the Honda CR-V. Turns out, we aren’t the only ones.

Check out the first paragraph of this review, “The all-new, fourth-generation Honda CR-V debuted late last year with upscale styling, excellent fuel efficiency, and a host of standard convenience features, making it one of the most fun and functional compact SUVs in America. The CR-V returns for 2013 as an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and is distinguished by a NHTSA 5-star Overall Vehicle Score. Along the way, it has also earned awards from Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com and J.D. Power and Associates.”

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

But there’s more.

Here are the highlights:

  • Body: “aggressive and aerodynamic”, lightweight suspension
  • Interior: “The interior of the 2013 Honda CR-V combines a sedan-like driving position with abundant comfort and convenience features, and standout utility and versatility. The CR-V’s “small on the outside, big on the inside” packaging is the key to its appeal. The roomy 5-passenger seating layout provides plenty of space to stretch out, front and rear, and there’s abundant storage, including a large center console.” Also the 60/40 easy fold-down seats for bigger loads.
  • Safety: “The CR-V has been named a TOP SAFETY PICK (the highest rating possible) by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The rating recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting vehicle occupants involved in front, side and rear crashes.”
  • Power: “All CR-V models are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 163 lb-ft. of torque.”

Stop by Sims Honda, Apple Valley Honda, or Northwest Honda today so you can take the new Honda CR-V out for a test drive!

Honda Tops List of Most Reliable Vehicles

According to this article, Honda is was named as the most reliable car brand for the eighth year in a row.

Honda, in fact, heads up a tough list of Japanese automakers, but bests them all. As the article points out, you may think that the luxury brands save money over the long-term because of their alleged reliability, when, in fact, luxury vehicles like Bentley and Land Rover, were the least reliable.

Here’s how Honda was determined the most reliable: “Experts looked at 38 car makes by examining warranty claims of 50,000 three- to eight-year-old vehicles.”

Go the article linked above to see the complete list.

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!

2014 Honda Fit Hybrid Gets 85 MPG, Only in Japan

Of course this article caught our attention as we read that the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid is expected to get 85.6 mpg (36.4 km/L). Wow. Then we were disappointed when we read that the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid will probably only be made available in Japan.

Insert teenage whiny voice: “But whyeeeeee?!”

According to the article, “The Honda Fit is sold in the U.S. with a 1.5-liter four cylinder and gets 35 mpg with the automatic transmission. And it’s also sold as a 100 percent electric. But Honda is apparently not offering the hybrid model in the U.S. Honda may be working on a new compact sedan and crossover based on the Fit, for the U.S. and it could be sold in North-America early in 2014 with a similar hybrid system.”

That’s not really an answer. Personally, I’d want a model that gets 85.6 mpg. Right?!

“The all-new 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid will launch in Japan in early September. Hopefully the Japanese automaker will either bring the hybrid Fit to the U.S., or develop a new compact sedan and crossover based on the Sport Hybrid i-DCD hybrid system. Stay tuned.”

What do you think? Should Honda bring the 2014 Honda Fit Hybrid to the U.S. so we can all have the opportunity to drive a car that gets the “fuel sipping” mileage of 85.6 mpg?? Yes! :)

2013 Honda Accord HFP: Video

The 2013 Honda Accord has received rave reviews from consumers and critics alike. But the Honda Accord HFP (Honda Factory Performance) takes it up a notch.

“When you push it, it delivers,” said one driver in this video review.

Some of the other comments from those driving the Accord AFP include:

  • “It feels European…”
  • “Good, all-around vehicle…”
  • “Honda’s brought the fun back.”
In fact, one review went so far to say, “That’s one thing about Hondas…there’s something fun about them.”

And you can get the Accord HFP financed, as well! If you care about performance then you need to consider the Accord HFP. Watch the video to see more about why!

Honda Recalls Honda Fit Hatchbacks

This is expansion of the recall issued in April. The total number of vehicles affected since that announcement is 91,000.

According to this article, “The vehicles need a software update to the vehicle’s electronic stability control system, Honda said in a statement.”

“If you have any questions or concerns, please call us,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “Driver and passenger safety is the most important thing to us, so we want to make sure that all vehicles are functioning properly.
