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.

2016 Sonata vs. 2016 Accord in San Antonio

If you know anything about the 2016 model year vehicles, then you know that they are game-changers in several ways! Whether you’re just dipping your toes in the search for a new car or you’ve been looking for a while, Fiesta Honda invites you to check out our most recent comparison, the 2016 Sonata vs. the 2016 Accord in San Antonio! We’ll be highlighting 5 car categories we believe are most important in the purchase of a new car so you can make the most educated decision. Here we go!

 

Safety

Both the Accord and the Sonata can tout acceptable safety ratings, but the Accord has Active Head Restraints that protect the front driver and passenger from whiplash, something that the Sonata doesn’t offer at all, which sets it apart. In addition to the whiplash protection, the Accord has available parking sensors and was given the top rating of “Good” in the overall evaluation for the IIHS frontal offset crash test. The Sonata does not have parking sensors, and was rated only “Acceptable” in the IIHS crash test.

Warranty and Reliability

Did you know that there are 73% more Honda dealers than there are Hyundai dealers? Getting your car serviced in your Accord is significantly more convenient than getting your Sonata would be.

The J.D. Power and Associate’s survey of owners of 3-year-old cars conclude that Honda cars were ranked 5th in reliability, while the Hyundai vehicles were ranted way low on the list, at 24th.

Power and Performance

With the most basic 2016 Accord engine, you’ll get 185 horsepower, which is great in the sedan market. With the Accord EX-L V6/Touring engine, you’ll be riding with 278 horsepower! On the other hand, the 2016 Sonata’s base engine gets only 178 horsepower, and it’s top-of-the-line 2.0 turbo engine gets just 245.

Towing Capacity

Yes, you read that correctly! The 2016 Accord, still in the sedan category, has a towing capacity of 1000 pounds! No need to borrow your brother’s friend’s truck the next time you need to pull something <1000 pounds. This is a perk that the Sonata unfortunately does not have!

Technology Features

It’s not a secret anymore that Honda just has overall better technology options and features than Hyundai. With this being the case and to save time, we’re listing technology features that the 2016 Accord offers as standard that the 2016 Sonata does not come standard with:

  • Standard remote vehicle starting system
  • Windows can be controlled from the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote
  • Standard speed-sensitive windshield wipers
  • Dual-zone air conditioning
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • Rear heating and cooling vents for backseat passengers
