It is also anticipated to increase its EPA-estimated city fuel-efficiency ratings by up to 50% more than the regular CR-V.

Along with this increased power, the CR-V Hybrid will also come available with all-wheel drive, which is the first-time Honda will offer this drive system with a hybrid US model.

With solid fuel-efficiency numbers, standard safety technology, and best-in-class horsepower, the 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid is ready to shake up the eco-friendly sedan market.

For the 2020 model year, this hybrid sedan boasts an EPA-estimated 48 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway, making it a solid option for an everyday driver.* The Accord Hybrid also comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistance technologies, which help increase your awareness of your surroundings and potentially help you avoid collisions. The technologies included in this suite include Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and a Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).**

The Accord Hybrid will also come with some new features, including an updated Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS), which is used whenever the car is using electric-only power. This system alerts the driver of certain obstacles, helping them become more aware of pedestrians, bicyclists, and other road users.

It also comes equipped with the third-generation two-motor hybrid-electric powertrain. This powertrain works with a 2.0-liter engine that produces a total system output of 212 horsepower — a leading number in the Accord Hybrid’s class. Because of this engine’s unique two-motor system, the Accord Hybrid doesn’t need a conventional automatic transmission.

This hybrid sedan is now available at Avery Greene Honda with a starting MSRP of $25,470.**

A Patriotic Past: Looking at the American History of Honda

American History of Honda | Vallejo, CA

Honda might be a Japanese carmaker, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have very, very deep roots in America. With the Fourth of July still fresh in our rearview mirror, let’s delve into the American history of Honda, seeing how the brand become established in this North American market.

 

Honda first came to America in 1970, introducing the N600 as its first-ever American-sold vehicle. In 1979, this Japanese carmaker made history by opening its first motorcycle plant on U.S. soil, hiring 55 Americans and 11 Japanese workers to begin this endeavor. The plant eventually expanded into a car plant in 1982.

 

Located in Marysville, Ohio, this Honda manufacturing plant was just the beginning. Since it was created, the plant has seen Marysville increase its population from 7,000 people in 1980 to more than 24,000 people in 2019. Honda has over 15,000 employees and more than 134 suppliers across Ohio. It was also the first Japanese carmaker to build engines and transmissions in the U.S., along with being the first to export U.S.-built cars to overseas markets.

 

Now, Honda has 12 manufacturing plants across the United States. It opened a new, state-of-the-art facility in Marysville in 2016 to help build the only supercar produced in America, and has exported 1.3 million automobiles from the United States since 1987. What this means in practical terms: the chances are good that the stylish new vehicle you’re considering at Avery Greene Honda was made right here in the U.S.A.

2019 Honda Passport Safety Rating Gets Top NHTSA Score

2019 Honda Passport | Vallejo, CA

The 2019 Honda Passport recently achieved the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as part of the New Car Assessment Program.* In earning the highest score that NHTSA offers for safety, the new Passport establishes itself as a confident, family-friendly option. What’s more, NHTSA’s recognition of the 2019 Honda Passport means that every Honda vehicle tested in the NCAP has earned the highest possible score for safety.**

 

The Honda Advanced Compatibility Engineering™, or ACE™, body structure has been significant in helping Honda vehicles earn these high safety ratings. ACE™ uses font-frame structures to absorb and deflect the energy created from a frontal collision, helping to reduce the likelihood of injury.

 

The 2019 Honda Passport safety rating was also helped by its Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies. This suite, which is standard on the Passport, helps increase the driver’s awareness of his or her surroundings with technologies like Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and a Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

 

This technology also comes standard on the 2019 Accord, Clarity series, Insight, Pilot, and Civic.*** Over 85 percent of all new Honda vehicles sold in 2019 have had the Honda Sensing® suite. Honda has sold over 2.1 million vehicles equipped with this technology since its introduction in 2015.

 

If you’re in the market for a vehicle that is stylish, fun to drive, and safe, check out the new Passport at Avery Greene Honda.
