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!

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!
