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.**

2016 Honda Accord Arrives in Australia

The 2016 Honda Accord is a top competitor among the midsize sedan segment—and for good reason. Boasting the interior of a luxury car, there aren’t many competitors that can compare. The latest Accord arrived in Australia not long ago with new equipment, styling, and pricing.

Boasting a chromed-out front end, the 2016 Honda Accord keeps up with the latest Honda Civic’s appearance with ease. Riding on a new wheel design, a little goes a long way in this popular car.

In terms of equipment, Honda added the LaneWatch Camera system to the base Accord. That safety technology displays what the driver might not be able to see on the touchscreen. The higher trims come equipped with the Honda Sensing safety suite which includes road departure mitigation and a lane keep assist system, among others.

The Accord VTi comes fully loaded for a little over $23,700 in United States currency. In Australian currency, that same model will run drivers $32,990.

2016 Honda Civic

2016 Honda Civic

Early this month, the 2016 Honda Civic joined three of its fellow models on the 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ list. The new Accord Sedan and Coupe, the CR-V, and the Pilot were also named to this list. The Top Safety Pick+ rating is given to vehicles that earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” score on their front crash test.

The Civic Sedan, also deemed the 2016 North American Car of the Year, offers a wide range of safety features in addition to receiving excellent crash test ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Civic includes the Honda Sensing technology suite, which raises the bar for the compact car class. This suite includes driver assist technologies like a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and several others.

Civic Sedans also come with Stability Assist with Traction Control, a rearview camera, and its Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which gives it unbeatable strength in crash situations. No wonder the Civic is considered one of the safest cars on the road!

Honda Sweeps Up Eight 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Ratings

2016 Honda Pilot

2016 Honda Pilot – An IIHS Top Safety Pick+

It’s an important time of year for the auto industry. Now’s the time when the big-talkers are separated from the big-doers, the haves from the have-nots: it’s safety award season. And, Honda’s just cleaned up big-time.

Honda took home a whopping eight IIHS Top Safety Pick+ ratings for its Honda and Acura models, pushing them to the forefront of the industry.

Every year, the IIHS (or Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) rates all vehicles in terms of their overall safety and reliability. The two coveted titles, the IIHS Top Safety Pick and the IIHS Top Safety Pick+, indicate to consumers that a vehicle is top-notch in terms of crashworthiness and security. To earn a Top Safety Pick rating, a vehicle must be named “Good” or better in all five crashworthiness categories, and for that amazing little plus-sign (meaning they’ve gone above and beyond the IIHS’s strict safety standards), a vehicle must also score an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating in front crash prevention.

The eight winning Honda models are the Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe; the Honda CR-V; the Honda Pilot; the Acura ILX and RLX sedans; and the Acura MDX and RDX SUVS.

Say Goodbye to the Crosstour, Hello to the HR-V Replacing the Crosstour

Last call: this is your last chance to purchase a new Honda Crosstour as production of the model will cease after the 2015 model year. As we say goodbye to the Crosstour, we look forward to saying hello to the all-new Honda HR-V.

2015 Honda HR-V

2015 Honda HR-V

Built at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, discontinuing production of the Crosstour enables the plant to take on production of more of Honda’s popular models, like the Accord and CR-V as well as other vehicles from its sister company, Acura.

Said executive vice president of American Honda Motor Company, John Mendel, “The Crosstour, introduced in 2010, served a positive role in helping the Honda brand target crossover buyers. However, the crossover segment has evolved and we believe the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V launching later this spring will create new value for crossover shoppers…”

The HR-V, is the ultimate crossover, featuring the exterior styling of a coupe and the interior space of an SUV. The vehicle joins the Honda lineup as the smallest crossover designed to zip around city streets.

For more information on either the 2015 Crosstour or the 2016 HR-V replacing the Crosstour, don’t hesitate to contact us here at Avery Greene Honda. But don’t wait too long; the clock is ticking down for the Crosstour.

Honda Takes Title of Bestselling Automaker in California

2015 Honda Accord

2015 Honda Accord

Time to downshift, Toyota Prius. After taking bestseller in California for the past three years, the hybrid has been pushed out. In 2014, the Honda Accord has taken the title of bestselling automaker in California. It was a close race and came down to the wire, with the Accord selling 71,578 units to the Prius’ 71,210 units. That’s not all. The Prius also faced fierce competition in another Honda model: the Civic.

Both the Accord and Prius come in four models. The Accord sells in coupe and sedan body styles with an additional hybrid model and plug-in hybrid version. The latter two sell in low volumes. The Prius consists of the Liftback, C subcompact, V wagon, and plug-in hybrid. With an aging design and an increasing number of hybrids and electric cars, it was only a matter of time.

Prius sales increased by only 2%. The Accord, however, rode the recovery wave and jumped 17.3% compared to 2013. Now that the Honda Accord has ousted the Prius for bestseller in California, what model will be next to overtake the Prius? The 13-time bestselling car in America, the Toyota Camry? The longtime favorite nameplate, the Toyota Corolla? We at Avery Greene Honda can’t wait to see these two Japanese automakers duke it out over California.
