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.

New Cars in San Antonio: 2016 Civic vs. 2016 Jetta

 

There’s nothing better that that clean, new car smell – are we right? If you been in the market to buy a brand new car, you’ve landed on the right page. Benson Honda is here to show you how out all of the new cars in San Antonio, the 2016 Civic is the one to buy! What makes it so great? We’ll break it up into 5 reasons for you.

 

  1. Better safety features than the 2016 Jetta.

With the 2016 Civic, you can drive knowing that you’re keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. The 2016 Civic has speed sensors AND seat sensors that will deploy the smart airbags with different levels of force depending on how fast you are going, and what size the person in the front seat is. Not to mention the optional lane departure warning system that alerts an inattentive driver that they are cruising into the wrong late.

  1. Made to be higher quality.

Honda has a name for quality, and it doesn’t stop with the 2016 Civic. Honda was named 14th in initial quality by J.D. Power while Volkswagen was way down the list at number 23. On a similar note, the 2015 survey of 3-year-old car owners, Honda was ranked 5thin reliability, and Volkswagen, again down the list, as 21st.

  1. Unbeatable fuel economy.

Volkswagen may have been called out recently about cheating on the American air pollution tests, but Honda is doing quite the opposite. The 2016 Civic gets 31 city/42 hwy MPG* on average. The Jetta? 28 city/39 hwy MPG* and on top of that requires premium fuel.

  1. Room for everyone.

Did you know the Civic is rated a Mid-size car by the EPA? The Jetta is only considered a Compact car because it is much smaller. In fact, you’ll notice that the Civic has 3.7 cubic feet more passenger room than the Jetta does. In addition to that, the Civic’s trunk lift-over height is 26.8 inches and the Jetta’s is 28.2. This makes loading items in the Civic much more accessible.

  1. Top-of-the-line technology.

The Civic, unlike the Jetta, offers a remote starting system, which allows you to start the vehicle from inside of the driver’s house so your car is nice and toasty by the time you enter. And speaking of toasty, the Civic and Jetta both offer front heated seats, but the Civic Touring makes heated seats available to those passengers in the rear seats! Heated rear seats are not even an option in the Jetta.

 

Do we have you convinced? When it comes to new cars in San Antonio, you’ll want to invest in the 2016 Honda Civic for several reasons. When you’re ready to seal the deal, stop by Benson Honda for a test drive! We’ll be happy to get you in the driver’s seat of this amazing car!
