New Acura and Honda Products Fuel Surge in September Automobile Sales

  • Hot new Acura TLX powers an 18.8 percent division increase with 3,884 September sales
  • Acura RDX posted its best-ever September with sales of 3,230, rising 6.9 percent for the month and helping Acura trucks to its best September on record
  • New Honda Fit achieves best September ever on sales of 6,628 units, up 66.5 percent
  • Honda CR-V also sets new September record, rising 10.6 percent on sales of 23,722

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported September 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 118,223 units, an increase of 12.0 percent versus September of last year. The Honda division had its best September since 2007 with sales of 104,391 vehicles, while Acura posted sales of 13,832 units in the same period. Acura trucks posted its best-ever September, rising 6.8 percent vs. 2013. Year-to-date total American Honda sales reached 1,160,605 vehicles.

Honda
The Honda brand showed considerable strength across its broad lineup in September, with nearly every model gaining for the month and two models—Fit and CR-V—setting new September records. Overall, the Honda brand was up 11.2 percent, the division’s best post-recession September – since 2007.

  • The outgoing 2014 CR-V enjoyed its best-ever September, with sales of 23,722 yielding a 10.6 percent increase for the month. The new 2015 CR-V, featuring enhanced styling, a new powertrain and a host of safety features, went on-sale today.
  • The new 2015 Honda Fit, now produced in North America, surpassed its popular predecessor by posting a new September record with sales of 6,628, an increase of 66.5 percent over the same period in 2013.
  • Honda Accord gained sharply for the ninth straight month, rising 30.9 percent on sales of 32,956 units.
  • Odyssey also showed strength with an increase of 13.7 percent, posting sales of 8,769 units in September.

“With all core Honda models now made in North America the Honda brand is continuing to gain strength with American car buyers,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. “And with the redesigned 2015 Honda CR-V going on sale today we expect our momentum to continue to grow as step-by-step we reinforce our light truck lineup.”

Acura
Less than two months on the market and without full supply of the three-model lineup at dealerships, the all-new 2015 Acura TLX luxury performance sedan sparked an 18.8 percent sales surge for the luxury brand, boosting division sales to 13,832 for September over the same month in 2013.  TLX sales were second only to the Acura MDX within the entire division, followed by another record performance by the RDX, with the luxury SUVs pushing Acura truck sales to a new September record.

  • The hot-selling new TLX posted sales of 3,884 in September to become Acura’s best-selling sedan and second best-selling vehicle, already approaching segment leaders in only its first full month on the market.
  • ILX sales were also up in September, adding 7.4 percent with sales of 1,464 units.
  • Acura truck sales set a new September record, rising 6.8 percent on sales of 8,097 vehicles.
  • Acura’s RDX rose 6.9 percent to post its best-ever September for the brand on sales of 3,230 units.
  • MDX sales increased 7.2 percent with 4,864 units sold in September, continuing to solidify its place as the best-selling three-row luxury SUV in America.

“With the MDX and RDX as the best one-two punch in the luxury SUV segment, the TLX is proving to be the knockout punch we’ve been looking for in the luxury sedan arena,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “The TLX is attracting so much attention online and showroom traffic at our dealers that we don’t yet know the car’s true potential.”

No Minivan Tops Honda Odyssey

The 2014 Honda Odyssey is the simply the best minivan available. That’s not just what we think, that’s according to Cars.com. The newest version of the Honda Odyssey is just the Odyssey pulling further away from the competition.

“The minivan market is pretty competitive,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager at Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “But the 2014 Honda Odyssey really proves there is no competition. It has led and will continue to lead the minivan pack because it is the best designed, most functional, most technological advanced, and most family friendly minivan available.”

The short video by Cars.com shows exactly why the 2014 Honda Odyssey is better than all the rest:

  • 1 mpg improvement over the last model
  • Touchscreen infotainment control
  • Better materials
  • HondaVac, which is the vacuum designed by ShopVac that reaches all the way to the front of the van.
  • Would win a race with any other minivan, including the Toyota Sienna
  • The seats expand outward to make more room for car seats
  • There is a 15 inch widescreen tv…that can split into two media AND 5.1 surround sound!

Certainly the Honda Odyssey is not a cheap vehicle, but compared to other minivans is right in the ball park. But compared to many vehicles it is by far the best value for everything that comes with it.

Beginning Aug. 2, the class-leading 2015 Honda Odyssey goes on sale with a starting Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)1 of $28,975.

The Odyssey received a host of powertrain, styling, interior, feature and safety equipment upgrades for the 2014 model year, including the acclaimed in-vehicle vacuum cleaner, the HondaVAC, featured on the Odyssey Touring Elite. Other upgrades designed to meet the needs of active families included the addition of a standard 6-speed automatic transmission resulting in class-leading EPA fuel-economy ratings, enhanced safety equipment and connectivity upgrades.

These changes plus the functionality of the fundamental design elicited numerous 2014 awards. These ranged from Parents Magazine and Edumunds.com Best Minivan for Families and a Best Value award from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance to a Good Housekeeping VIP (Very Innovative Products) award and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) naming the Odyssey a “greener choices of 2014″ as the highest ranked minivan.

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.

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. The Touring Elite also features HD Radio™ and new Neural 5.1 Surround™ audio.

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.

Of course, you also have to include the top-selling minivan, the 2014 Honda Odyssey as a contributor to that, as well.

“Honda consistently puts out vehicles that people want to drive, that have the best resale value, and are incredibly long-lasting and dependable,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington.

The saw it the same way at Torquenews.com. “To us this is no -brainer. Looking to the streets of any-town North America, we find decades old Honda Accords and Civic coupes and sedans selling in the mid 5 figures. No other brand can touch Honda for brand loyalty, longevity and long-term resale value.”

Honda Odyssey Recall

Honda is voluntarily recalling some 2014 Honda Odyssey minivans because the side airbags may not deploy during a crash.

The recall involves less than 25,000 vehicles.

According to this brief, “Honda says a shorting terminal, which prevents deployment of the air bag before it’s put into the vehicle, might have been damaged during assembly. That might illuminate the air bag warning light and prevent the side curtain air bags from deploying.”

“If you have any questions about the safety of your vehicle or possible necessary repairs, please do not hesitate to contact us,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “Of course, any inspection and repairs related to this recall will be done free of charge to Odyssey owners.”
