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!
