Watch out, Toyota—Honda is coming for you in the green car segment! The editors at Green Car Journal recently announced that the 2015 Honda Fit is a finalist for Green Car of the Year—a prestigious award that recognizes the most eco-friendly cars in the industry. With a complete redesign and class-leading EPA-estimated fuel economy, the Fit is a top choice for this award, showing that you don’t need to go hybrid to be fuel-efficient.
“The new Fit shows once again that Honda understands the need to not only deliver desired levels of style, functionality, and performance in its new products, but enhanced environmental achievement as well,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsofChange.com. “When you can make a model like the Fit more stylish and versatile than the one that preceded it while also providing greater power, higher mpg, and lower greenhouse gas emissions, that’s an achievement deserving of recognition.”
The 2015 Fit offers an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined to consumers, while providing fun-to-drive performance with its Earth Dreams Technology 1.5-liter engine and either six-speed manual transmission or CVT. Combining this terrific fuel economy, along with its ample cargo room, the Fit is the perfect car for anyone who needs a versatile mode of transport.
To see the finalist for Green Car of the Year for yourself, stop in to Avery Greene Honda today and give the 2015 Fit a test drive!
The Honda Civic, all on its own, is a reliable and affordable sedan. However, thanks to new green Honda Civic models like the Civic Hybrid and Civic Natural Gas, it’s now even more than that—it’s a sedan that brings incredible efficiency and value to the equation. Whether you’re interested in hybrid technology or want to test out the CNG as a renewable resource, the Civic is the way to go.

It’s not like the Civic is only special because of that powertrain technology, though. All these 2015 Civics also come with features like Display Audio with a 7 inch touchscreen, leather seats, and safety tech like LaneWatch and a standard rearview camera. They both, of course, post excellent fuel efficiency numbers and will be highly in demand when they hit the market.
The Civic Hybrid actually recently did hit the market on November 5, and the Civic Natural Gas is right on its heels on November 19. So come see us at Avery Greene Honda to learn more about all the Honda Civic models available today.
Honda has a long history of creating some of the most reliable and durable cars on the road. The automaker is also known the world over for building vehicles with superior fuel efficiency. But we can’t forget that when it comes to hybrid technology and implementation, Honda is simply cutting-edge. Torque News took a 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid for a spin and found that it was “futuristic and unique.” Here’s why…
The brakes on the Accord Hybrid are electric mechanical regenerating disks.
Below highway speeds, the Accord is the only hybrid that keeps the gasoline engine disengaged from the drive wheels.
The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid offers 47 mpg combined.
The base trim Accord Hybrid comes with backup camera, voice command, and right lane watch in addition to an awesome 8-speaker sound system.
The Accord Hybrid is equipped with Honda’s 2.0-liter EarthDreams hybrid engine, which uses “10% less fuel than competition’s comparably sized engine.”
Torque News claims that “the ride comfort, handling and interior noise level is superior to any other car in Honda’s lineup.” When the tester was asked what he would change about the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid, he said, “Nothing, really!”

Honda takes driver-assistive services to the next level with Honda SENSING technology. The suite of safety technologies is so spectacular that it requires all capital letters!
Honda SENSING will initially debut in Japan as the all-new Legend hits the market, but the automaker plans to expand its availability to additional models and countries in the future.
The technology improves on Honda’s suite of driver-assistive technologies by using a new windshield-mounted monocular camera and millimeter-wave radar located within the front grille. The camera is able to detect objects up to 60 meters away, while the radar can catch the position and speed of objects in front of the vehicle.
The Pedestrian Collision Mitigation Steering System is a newly-offered technology made possible by the improvement of these sensors.
The SENSING system also includes Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Traffic Sign Recognition, False Start Prevention Function, and Lead Car Departure Notification System.
Contact us at Avery Greene Honda for more information on Honda’s comprehensive safety features after the Honda Legend debuts SENSING technology. Of course, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for news of when to expect the SENSING system stateside.
It is no question that Honda has a legacy of producing high quality vehicles that are also extremely innovative. The brand has won multiple loyalty and value awards, and rightfully so. With the new and revamped 2015 Honda CR-V only just hitting the market at the beginning of this month, Honda is adding yet another trophy to its case: 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year.
What ultimately swayed the decision of the judges at Motor Trend? A large part of it had to do with the abundance of new features being offered in the 2015 CR-V.
“The 2015 Honda CR-V impressed our judges with its extensive list of delightful design and thoughtful engineering improvements,” said Motor Trend editor-in-chief Ed Loh. “Our editors were especially impressed by Honda’s responsive and efficient continuously-variable transmission and sophisticated safety systems – particularly the smart and seamlessly integrated Lane Keeping Assist system. Efficient, practical, and a joy to drive; the 2015 Honda CR-V does virtually everything well.”
New features available in the 2015 Honda CR-V include a new direct-injected Earth Dreams Technology™ i-VTEC® mated to a new CVT, which results in an 11% boost in torque and estimated fuel economy improvements of 3 combined mpg.
Other standard features include a center console armrest, sliding sunvisors, and rear console ventilation ducts. All of this in addition to improvements to the chassis, braking, and overall exterior aesthetic.
With a reputation of safety and value, how could you not get on board and own a new Honda? Get your hands on the 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year now at Avery Green Honda!
Those familiar with the sport will tell you that to call Honda’s return to Formula 1 “exciting” would be a major understatement. The automaker has a rich heritage as an engine supplier and is famous for that incredible run in 1988, when it powered McLaren to 15 wins out of 16 races and an equal amount of pole positions. In fact, it would have been 16 wins had Ayrton Senna not collided with a lapped car.
After that explosive year, Honda-powered McLaren cars continued to dominate, winning three additional back-to-back constructors’ and drivers’ championships, until Honda withdrew from the sport in 1993.
Next year, Honda will be back, and once again partnered with McLaren. The new engine formula is particularly well-suited for a manufacturer like Honda, who is already very familiar with V6 engines and hybrid systems. We all hope to see something exceptional from Honda’s F1 return next year here at Avery Greene Honda! Get a taste of what’s to come in the video below.
Infotainment systems have very much become part of the vehicle market landscape. When considering the purchase of a new car, buyers are giving increased consideration to the kind of system featured in that car. Those buyers in the market for the new 2015 Honda Civic, Civic Tourer, and CRV will not be disappointed!
Honda calls its new system Honda Connect. It’s based in Android and the operating system for Connect is Google OS. Honda has developed specific apps to use with the car and these can be easily downloaded into the system, including a Garmin GPS app. Any Android app can also be downloaded.
Functions include your standard fare, like CD player, FM radio and Bluetooth. The Connect also includes Mirrorlink, which helps your Smartphone connect up to your infotainment system.
Buyers should really dig the Connect’s customizable nature. Multiple options are offered for your home screen layout. Also, install a photo-editing app and you can use any photo you want as wallpaper. Maybe a portrait of you leaning against your new Civic?

It has been the stereotypical “soccer mom’s” mode of transportation and endured long family vacations, but regardless of who owns it or what it’s used for, everyone knows it as the beloved minivan. With school back in session, the van has made a solid reappearance in the auto industry too—probably because it’s the perfect vehicle for families.
2014 Honda Odyssey
The Street quotes Brandy Schaffels from AskPatty.com, who says, “The minivan has had lasting appeal because of its practical functionality.” It is no question that vans are the most efficient way to transport groups of people and luggage. The competing SUVs lack the low entry for ease of access for the smaller family members. The flat floors also aid in easy passenger loading, along with sliding doors that are large enough to allow nearly anything to be stored in the back. There is no denying that the minivan stands up to the test of time and is nearly essential for every family.
If you’re interested in one, the base price for a Honda Odyssey starts at $28,975 and gets a wonderful 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. Join the minivan hype and get your own today from Avery Green Honda!
