2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year

2015 Honda CR-V Named 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year

2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year

2015 Honda CR-V

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!

Honda’s F1 Return Could be Explosive

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.

Honda Connect: The Best Infotainment Money Can Buy

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?
