Overview of the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio

Fiesta Honda is excited to tell you that we have tons of options for the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio! It’s no surprise to anyone that this new Accord has really broken the boundaries of the affordable and comfortable mid-size car segment. If you’re a current Accord owner then you know what we mean, but if not, you’re in for a treat. Not only is this new Accord an award-winner, the Accord model has been around for more than 40 years now, so you know it is perfection!

So, what can you expect in this new Accord? Well, for starters the 2017 Accord has a grille design that will make you double take when you notice the (available) LED headlights and daytime running lights. The body style is elegant and bold with angular lines and beautifully designed wheels for the perfect combination of sophistication and confidence. It’s not just the headlights that are LED, the taillights are too for 360 degrees of an eye-catching vehicle.

Aside from the exterior, you have some interior features to look forward to. The interior is completely refined to make driving the Accord enjoyable. Features that were created for optimal driving comfort include the ergonomically-designed steering wheel with controls, 10-way adjustable memory seats, one-click shifting gears, a push start button, dual-zone AC, HomeLink®, and a functional center console complete with space for a tablet.

Because safety features are really what make or break a new car decision, let’s talk about those. Honda really had the consumer in mind when designing the new 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio, and it’s evident in the technology that was implemented. Honda created the Honda Sensing™ suite that will alert you of dangers outside the vehicle when you might not see them yourself. In addition to the Honda Sensing™ suite, there is the Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System and the Road Departure Mitigation System. To put it lightly, the Accord will keep you safe in a variety of scenarios!

Lastly, there is an Accord Hybrid option for those of you who are fuel-conscious. The Accord Hybrid gets an incredible 49/47-MPG city/highway* which really makes an impact considering competition doesn’t get more than 43 city MPG. The Accord Hybrid is making waves in the Hybrid category because not only is it fuel efficient, but it still gets 212 horsepower with the use of two motors! This is made possible by the fact that it can switch into Sport Mode for better acceleration.

Although we could go on and on about the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio, it might be better for you to see the car in person at Fiesta Honda. Stop by today for a test drive and let one of our helpful associates tell you even more about this incredible new mid-size car!

Introducing the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in San Antonio

If there is one truck out there that people are talking about, it’s the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in San Antonio. Breaking the rules of conventional pick-up trucks, the Ridgeline is wowing truck lovers for several reasons. This 2017 truck model is not only on target with top-of-the-line technology, but is ahead of the game! Fiesta Honda is proud to offer this truck to our customers, so before you come in for a test dive let’s go over the highlights of the new Ridgeline!


A Truck Bed Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Honda made a seemingly unchangeable detail of trucks the star feature. Think of it as a “smart bed” – “From off-road toys to 4’ x 8’ sheets of plywood, the bed of the Ridgeline was designed with minimal wheel well housings in order to maximize hauling capabilities.” Simple enough, right? The actual tailgate itself if smart too, opening multi-way unlike traditional tailgates. You are able to open the truck bed like a door or like a regular tailgate. Honda has also invented a solution to the low-storage problem with the In-Bed Trunk® that allows you to store items securely in the 7.3 cubic feet space located in the bed, and lock it, too. It even comes equipped with a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest! We could go on about the truck bed’s other cool features like the Truck Bed Audio System, but we need to keep moving so let’s talk about the interior.

Inside the 2017 Ridgeline

The interior of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has an available 8-inch display, push start button, one-touch power moonroof, Bluetooth connectivity, 4.2” multi-information display, and a center console that’s big enough for a 10-inch tablet, just to name a few. There’s seating for up to five adults comfortably, but if you are only seating 2 or 3 people, the seats are 60/40 lift-up rear seats to make room for extra storage. For the couple that is constantly switching who drives, you’ll love the memory seat that has driver memory settings for up to two people.

Beauty and Power

Just when you think this truck can’t get any better, you find out about the power capabilities. The Ridgeline is available with front or all-wheel drive but is powered by a 3.5L 280 horsepower V6 engine. And for all of you truck lovers that like a good towing capacity, the Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 hefty pounds backed up by the 262 lb-ft of torque.

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!

2015 Fit in San Antonio: 5-Star Safety Rating

2015 Fit San Antonio

Benson Honda is here with some very exciting news about the 2015 Honda Fit! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) just finished fully testing the new Fit in their rigorous series of crash measures, and the Fit passed with flying colors! In fact, the NHTSA gave the new Honda Fit an overall safety rating of 5 stars. This is the top score given by the government testing administration, and it’s quite an honor for the Fit!

Because of their small bodies, it’s hard for subcompact cars to ace crash tests. The Fit, however, goes above and beyond with its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. It did exceptionally well in front and side-impact crash tests administered by the NHTSA.

The 2015 Honda Fit is also an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick. In order to receive this title, the Fit had to perform well in a number of rigorous safety measures. The IIHS and the NHTSA are the two major safety-testing organizations in the U.S.

The Fit’s comprehensive suite of safety features also gives it a distinctive edge in terms of safety. Things like a standard rearview camera, motion-adaptive electric power steering, hill start assist, blind spot mirrors, and available Honda LaneWatch set the Fit apart from the competition.

Interested in a subcompact car that stands out from the pack as a safety leader, that’s earned prestigious accolades from both the NHTSA and the IIHS? Consider the 2015 Honda Fit at Benson Honda! Let us know if you want to test drive a Fit soon! We’re ready to hand over the keys!

Honda Accord News from Your San Antonio Car Dealer

2014 Honda Accord

Benson Honda, your San Antonio car dealer, is proud to announce that the Honda Accord broke a new record this past year. In 2013, for the first time ever, more Honda Accords were produced in North America than Toyota Camrys. The Toyota Camry is often thought of as the Accord’s primary rival. So, this is quite an accomplishment for the Honda mid-size vehicle.

Last year, a total of 466,695 Honda Accords were built on the assembly line at Honda’s plant in Ohio, which marked almost a 20% increase in Accord production from the previous year. Only 445,973 Toyota Camrys were produced in 2013 at the Toyota plant in Kentucky.

This spike in Accord production directly correlates to the increase in public interest in the Accord (and all Hondas, for that matter) in North America and beyond. Approximately 100,000 of the Accords produced in Ohio last year were exported to markets like South Korea and Russia. The rest of the Accord fleet was sold in the U.S.

Worldwide, Toyota produces the greatest number of vehicles of any automaker, which makes this recent Honda accomplishment particularly noteworthy. Honda’s Accord production expansion in 2013 might be a sign that the automaker has plans to position itself as the world’s most prolific automaker.

In other Honda Accord news, Kelley Blue Book recently named the 2014 Honda Accord one of the 12 Best Family Cars of the year. The Accord was also named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was given the Green Car of the Year title from Green Car Journal. It’s no wonder international interest in the Accord is on the rise and Accord production numbers are skyrocketing!
