Honda LogR™ Data App Helps Improve Driving Skills

2020 Honda Civic Type R LogR Data App

When you’re out on the track in your 2020 Honda Civic Type R, you will soon be able to get all the performance data you want simply with a few taps of your smartphone screen. Honda has recently announced an all-new datalogging app called Honda LogR®, which will help Type R drivers better understand their driving skills.

The Honda LogR® allows drivers to interact with it in three ways. The first is a Performance Monitor that allows the driver to track vehicle information on the Display Audio screen. Log Mode is the second function, which records lap times on the track. Then, there’s Auto Score, which is a function that monitors braking, acceleration, and steering to generate a “driving smoothness” score to help encourage smoother driving.

When you’re outside the car, you can even use the phone app to delve deeper into the data. The Log Mode and Auto Score functions allow you to look at previous drivers, performance traces, and replays of your drive using GPS mapping and detailed vehicle information.

The LogR® app will have exclusive access to the Civic Type R’s onboard computer, which other third-party datalogging apps don’t offer. This means you can get more in-depth detail about your vehicle’s performance than these aftermarket systems would offer.

This app will work exclusively with the 2020 Type R for both iPhone® and Android™ users and should be available to download sometime this spring. If you still need a Civic Type R, though, visit Avery Greene Honda!

Spring Car Care Tips to Leave Your Car Squeaky Clean

Spring Car Care Tips

Spring has sprung, which means it’s time to do some spring cleaning. While you’re bleaching your bathtub and scrubbing your skirting boards, make sure you also set aside time to take care of your car. These are some spring car care tips to help keep your car running smoothly.

Clean the exterior. While it doesn’t drop below freezing often in Vallejo, the colder weather can still do a number on your car’s exterior. From frost coating your windshield to sea air ruining your exterior paint, it’s important to give your vehicle’s exterior a good scrub at the end of the colder months.

De-clutter the interior. It’s easy to forget to clean out your car frequently when you have a busy schedule. Now is the time to get rid of any litter strewn about and wipe down your dashboard. You should consider getting out your vacuum and giving your carpets and upholstery a deep clean, too.

Check your tires. Warmer temperatures mean your tires’ pressure will begin to rise. Check that your tire pressure is within the recommended range. You should also check your tires for tread blading, bulges, or bumps.

Change your wipers out. Whether it’s heavy rain fall or fog, you want your visibility to be the best it can be. That’s why you should change out your windshield wipers now, so you get a streak-free windshield in inclement weather.

If spring cleaning isn’t your thing, bring your car in for service at Avery Greene Honda! Our expert technicians will ensure it’s ready for the warmer weather.

3 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Car Lovers

Romantic Valentine's Day Car Gifts | Vallejo, CA

February 14th is coming up quickly, which means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to get the Valentine in your life. If your significant other happens to love cars, you can always tailor your gift to this passion. To help you out, we’ve put together some ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts for car lovers.

 

Get their car detailed. There are few things better than having a car that’s spic and span. If your loved one is the type to really focus on taking care of their vehicle, then why not treat them to a detailing? An auto detailer will do a deep clean, leaving your significant other’s car sparkling like new.

 

Make it easier to head out in the morning. Morning drives aren’t fun, especially with how hot it can get in Vallejo sometimes. Make your loved one’s car that much better by getting them a remote starter. This will allow their car to get to a comfortable temperature without them having to sit in it, waiting for it to cool off.

 

Think of the right tools. From changing oil to changing out wheels, your partner likely needs new tools to make taking care of their car easier. Consider getting them new tools to help with any job. This gift can be tailored to their specific needs, whether they need a new wrench or a tool organizer to keep the garage tidy.

 

If you truly want to give your Valentine a gift they’ll remember, though, how about a new car or car accessory from Avery Greene Honda?

2020 Honda CR-V Named Green SUV of the Year

2020 Honda CR-V

Efficiency and family-friendliness come together in the 2020 Honda CR-V. That’s why this crossover was recently awarded the title of 2020 Green SUV of the Year from Green Car Journal.

The 2020 CR-V is now on sale at dealerships across America, while the CR-V Hybrid is arriving at dealerships soon, making it the first-ever Honda Hybrid SUV in the American market. The CR-V will come standard with the Honda SensingÒ suite of safety technologies and a more powerful powertrain on the LX trim: a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.

This is the sixth time that Honda has earned this recognition from Green Car Journal. Last year, the 2019 Insight earned the Green Car of the Year award, joining the 2012 Civic Natural Gas, 2014 Accord, and 2018 Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, Clarity Electric, and Clarity Fuel Cell. The 2016 HR-V also earned the title of Green SUV of the Year.

The addition of the 2020 CR-V Hybrid model is part of the brand’s pursuit of its eco-friendly goal, which is to halve its global CO2 emissions by 2050. To do so, Honda aims to electrify two-thirds of its global automobile sales by 2030. In 2019, the brand’s American electrified vehicle sales were up 34% from last year with more than 50,000 hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fuel-cell vehicles out on the road.

Just because you need an SUV doesn’t mean you can’t drive green. Learn more about the efficient 2020 Honda CR-V at Avery Greene Honda.

Honda Wins Overall Brand Honor in ALG Residual Value Awards

Honda Awards

When you purchase a new car, it’s likely you want a car that will retain its value over time. That’s where the ALG Residual Value Awards* come in. Every year, these awards honor those vehicles that will hold the highest percentage of their Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). This year, Honda received the top spot in these awards in the Mainstream Brand category, highlighting the brand’s dedication to providing consumers with the best value possible.

“Strong residual values are the foundation of successful automotive brands,” said Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst at ALG. “The residual value is important for consumers to take into consideration before making their next vehicle purchase because we know that depreciation is the single biggest cost of vehicle ownership.”

In addition to earning the title as the Best Overall Mainstream Brand, five Honda vehicles were also recognized in their respective segments. The 2020 Passport received the award in the Midsize Utility 2-Row category, while the Pilot was recognized in the Midsize Utility 3-Row category.

Along with these two models, the Accord took the top spot in the Midsize Car for the third consecutive year, while the 2020 Odyssey retained its first-place spot in the Minivan category. Finally, the Subcompact Car segment was won by the 2020 Fit for the sixth year in a row.

Interested in a vehicle that keeps a great deal of its value over time? Check out the Passport, Pilot, Accord, Odyssey and Fit at Avery Greene Honda!

Get Where You Need to Go with These Holiday Road Trip Travel Tips

Road Trip

Whether you’re heading over the river or through the woods to your parents’ house this year, it’s important that you stay safe on your way there. Keep these holiday road trip travel tips in mind as you head out to your holiday destination.

Plan ahead. Before you head out on the open road, make sure you map your route out in advance. Make sure you have any roadside assistance contact information in case you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, and make sure that you prepare yourself for any holiday traffic, since the holidays are a popular time of the year for road travel.

Get your car checked. You don’t want to get stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine or other issue. Bring your car to the Avery Greene Honda service center for a routine check-up before your trip to ensure your car is in working order.

Remember common-sense rules. To keep yourself — and your family — safe throughout the trip, try to remember some important unwritten rules. Remind your children not to talk to strangers when you’re at rest stops and accompany them into the bathroom. Also, tuck any valuables away in your trunk or in a covered storage area to reduce the likelihood of a break-in.

Wherever you’re going, have a safe road trip and happy holidays!

 

2020 Honda CR-V Updates Focus on More Tech, Features

2020 Honda CR-V

The New Year is right around the corner, which means more 2020 models are popping up throughout the automotive industry, introducing new features and options to consumers — and the Honda CR-V is no exception. These are some of the 2020 Honda CR-V updates you can expect this year.

Brand-New CR-V Hybrid

For the 2020 model year, the CR-V is getting a new hybrid-electric model. There’s not a lot of information released about this fuel-efficient CR-V just yet, but we do know that it will have the brand’s two-motor hybrid system, allowing it to get better efficiency without power. More information about the CR-V Hybrid will be released closer to its release date, which is set for early in 2020.

New Features

The Touring trim will now come with a heated steering wheel and wireless smartphone charging, while the CR-V gets a more flexible cabin overall. The biggest change mechanically, though, can be seen on the LX trim level. This trim will no longer come standard with a 2.4-liter engine. Instead, it will come with a standard 1.5-liter turbocharged direct-injected four-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, while also getting better fuel-efficiency numbers.

More Color Options

You now have the option to pick the color you want, thanks to three new exterior colors: Radiant Red Metallic, Sonic Gray Pearl, and Aegean Blue Pearl.

If you already loved the Honda CR-V, these updates will make you love it even more. Check out the refreshed SUV at Avery Greene Honda!
