2016 Optima vs. 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio

 

Searching for affordably priced sedans that air on the side of luxury? You’ve come to the right place! Fiesta Honda wants to assist you in making that new car decision. In fact, we’re going to do a comparison of two incredibly popular sedans of today: the 2016 Optima and the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio. Some have better safety than others, some have better performance capabilities, and we’re here to uncover exactly which car that is!

If it’s safety that you care most about in a car (most people do) then you’re better off going with the 2016 Accord. Although both have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, rearview cameras and lane departure warning systems, only the 2016 Accord was named a “Top Pick Plus” for 2015. The Institute for Highway Safety administers the safety tests to be named a “Top Pick” or “Top Pick Plus”, and the honor is only granted to 64 vehicles.

Like safety, these sedans in Round Rock are not created equal in fuel efficiency. With 27 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway*, the Accord takes the cake for better fuel mileage. The Optima only receives 25 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway. If you like spending less money and getting more bang for your buck, the Accord is the way to go!

Lastly, let’s talk about technology. Today’s affordable sedans have almost the same technology features as some luxury lines, and it doesn’t stop with either of these two cars! The Accord EX/EX-L/Touring has a standard remote vehicle starting system (so you don’t even have to leave your home to warm up or cool off your car)! Unfortunately, the Optima doesn’t even offer this feature in any model. The Accord also has several standard features that the Optima doesn’t have like speed-sensitive windshield wipers, standard automatic headlight on/off feature and standard dual zone air conditioning!

If we had to choose, we’d definitely be driving the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio for several reasons. Safety, MPG and technology are all important, but how about you take a test drive to seal the deal? Stop by Fiesta Honda today to get behind the wheel of this new Accord!

Experience the Thrill of the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio TX

 

It’s time for you to get an SUV upgrade! May we offer some assistance with your new car decision? We have tons of new SUVs on the lot, but one has consistently impressed not only the Fiesta Honda employees, but our customers, too! With unbelievable fuel economy, features, power and more, the CR-V beats out competitor SUVs in several ways. Let’s take a dive into the details of how the 2016 Ford Escape doesn’t stand a chance next to the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio!

Firstly, let’s start with safety. The 2016 CR-V has multiple safety features that make it top of the chart in safety! Things like the Standard Collision Mitigation Braking System – a system in which uses forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision keep the whole family safe. Not to mention that the CR-V will brake automatically at full-force to reduce force of the crash if driver does not respond to the warning, preventing many accidents. You’ll also get a standard rearview camera in the CR-V! All of these elements contribute to the5-star driver crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test, 4-star passenger crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test and 5-star front seat side impact rating in the NHTSA side impact test. The Ford Escape does not include some of the safety features tat the CR-V does, earning it a lower score on crash tests.

Now let’s touch on technology. The 2016 Honda CR-V has top-of-the-line safety features that make it stand out amongst other SUVs, like the 2016 Escape. The CR-V has one-touch power windows, smart entry keyless remote (standard on the EX/EX-L and Touring), a standard locking fuel door with remote release, a built-in pollen filter and adaptive cruise control. Like the safety comparison, the Escape can’t keep up!

The Escape also can’t keep up when it comes to power. The CR-V has a whopping 185 horsepower while the Ford Escape just barely holds its own at 182 horsepower. We can’t forget to tell that even with more power, the CR-V gets better fuel economy with 25 in the city and 33 on the highway*. The Escape on the other hand gets just 22 city/32 highway.

As you can see, the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio clearly beats out the Ford Escape. And we don’t want to brag, but the CR-V has also won more recognition like being an IIHS “Top Safety Pick Plus” (the Escape is only a standard “Top Pick”), and it’s recommended by Consumer Reports. Make the smart decision and go with the new CR-V from Fiesta Honda! We know you won’t be disappointed!

2016 Focus vs. 2016 Honda Civic in San Antonio

 

It’s the official start of summer and Fiesta Honda is excited about all of the new cars on the road! Maybe you’re getting a little bit of new car envy and looking into your options for new cars. Well, we’re proud to say that you’ve landed on the right blog post! Today we’re comparing two well-liked cars, the 2016 Focus and the 2016 Honda Civic in San Antonio to see how each measures up!

A lot of people are deterred from buying a new sedan because of lack of passenger and cargo space, but you don’t have to worry about that in the new Civic. The 2016 Honda Civic in San Antonio has 7.1 more cubic feet of passenger volume than the Focus has, which allows for a more comfortable ride! In addition to more passenger volume, the Civic also has 1.9 more cubic feet of trunk space so you never have to worry about having enough room in the back.

If your top priority is safety, then the 2016 Civic is the way to go. The Civic has tons of safety technology features that the Focus lacks; making it an overall safer vehicle to transport you and the ones you love! For instance, the Civic has speed and seat sensors that alert a smart airbag what level force to deploy depending on the size of the front passenger. The Civic also has standard whiplash protection, optional collision mitigation brakes and daytime running lights. Needless to say, when Honda engineers designed the 2016 Civic in Killeen, you and your family were top of mind.

Think your vehicle can be safe and powerful? That’s right, you can have your cake and eat it too! The Civic is not only the safest on the block, but it’s also the most powerful. Going from zero to 60 in 6.6 seconds, the Civic beats out the Focus by a full 1. 5 seconds! Not to mention the engine of the Civic is a 1.5 Turbo and the Focus has a 4 cylinder.

Space, safety, performance, the 2016 Honda Civic in San Antonio has it all! See yourself driving through the hills of San Antonio in this one-of-a-kind sedan? Hesitate no longer by stopping by Fiesta Honda for a test drive today!

2016 Dart vs. 2016 Civic in San Antonio

So many cars out there and so little time! No worries – Fiesta Honda is here to your rescue and will make your next car-buying decision a breeze. Whether its old or new, black or blue, a sedan is a great choice for a new car and we’re exciting that you’re considering it for your next ride. We’re particularly fond of two popular sedans on the road today, the 2016 Dart and 2016 Civic in San Antonio and we’re about to show you how they measure up to one another!

The 2016 Honda Civic has a few more safety features than the 2016 Dodge Dart. For example, the Civic has vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors that alert the smart airbags in the Civic to deploy with different levels of force to protect passengers of different sizes. The Dart’s airbags deploy at full force every time. The Civic also has optional Collision Mitigation Braking System and a lane departure warning system. The Dart doesn’t have either of these as an option. Both vehicles have standard driver, passenger, side-impact, and side-impact head airbags.

Worried about space in a “compact car”? The Civic doesn’t feel so compact with 39.3 inches of headroom in the front, and 37.1 in the rear seating area! Holding 5 passengers, the Civic has 97.8 cubic feet of cargo room and 15.1 cubic feet of cargo room. The Dart only has 13.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity, and its passenger volume is unlisted (which we can only assume means that it doesn’t compare).

If fuel economy and efficiency are important to you, it’s safer to go with the Honda Civic in San Antonio. Both the Civic and Dart have 2.0 4. Cylinder/Manual transmissions in the most basic mode, but the Civic gets 27 city/40 hwy MPG while the Dart only gets 25 city/36 hwy MPG*. In addition to better fuel efficiency, the Civic doesn’t require premium gas like the Dart, which can save you 20-55 cents/gallon.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – not all cars are created equal even if they are the same model year! In this case, the Civic is way ahead of the game in terms of technology and features. The Civic has front power-windows, standards power locks (which the Dart has, but costs extra), standard power remote mirrors, standard Bluetooth wireless, standard HondaLink, available front heated seats, and so much more.

It’s not hard to conclude what the better sedan out of the two is, and that would be the 2016 Civic in San Antonio! We look forward to having you in for a test drive at Fiesta Honda! See you soon!

New SUVs in San Antonio: 2016 CR-V vs. 2016 Rav4

 

Summer is just around the corner, a perfect time to road trip of the many new SUVs in San Antonio! With so many options to choose from, how do you know what SUV is right for you? Fiesta Honda is here to help you out with that decision. We’ve compiled some research on a couple of SUVs with the goal of showing you which one comes out as your ideal vehicle. Let’s look at the differences and similarities between the 2016 CR-V and the 2016 Rav4!

 

Is safety a #1 priority for you? The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring has standard HondaLink Assist, which means it has a unique GPS system to alert emergency crews to come directly to the scene when airbags deploy. The Rav4 does not have this capability, which would delay help if you were to be involved in an accident. In addition to this helpful feature, the CR-V also has better safety ratings! With a 5-star overall rating in the NHTSA crash test, the CR-V can’t possibly get any safer. The Rav4 only has a 4-star overall safety rating.

 

In addition to safety, the CR-V has better fuel economy than the 2016 Rav4. This 185 horsepower SUV gets 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway*. With only 176 horsepower and 24 city/33 hwy MPG*, the Rav4 doesn’t quite keep up with the CR-V. Bottom line? You can have power and efficiency in the CR-V! How cool is that?

 

Finally, the CR-V has features that make the drive overall more comfortable than it would be in the Rav4. The telescoping steering wheel is much better than the Rav4’s tilt steering because it allows a short driver to sit further form the steering wheel while still maintaining contact with the pedals. Also, in the CR-V Touring, memory seats are an ultra convenient feature when you have multiple drivers regularly. The final feature worth noting is the CR-V’s adaptive cruise control. Unlike traditional cruise control (like what the Rav4 offers), the adaptive cruise control adjusts to the speed of the vehicle without the driver having to. That’s a major plus if you’re a frequent driver!

 

Out of these two new SUVs in San Antonio, the CR-V reigns superior! Can you see yourself cruising the streets in a new 2016 CR-V? We surely can and would love for you to stop by Fiesta Honda today for a test drive!
