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 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

 

See what the hype is about concerning the 2016 Accord in San Antonio? The Accord is packed with jaw-dropping features that you just can’t get in the 2016 Hyundai Sonata! Fiesta Honda invites you to come try the new Accord out in person by stopping by the showroom today!

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2016 Honda HR-V in San Antonio

Are you on the hunt for the perfect crossover? Your search ends at Benson Honda, because we have some incredible crossovers for you to fall in love with! But first, you’ll need to weigh your options before you make a car purchase, so your researching ends here, too! Today we’re comparing two rival crossovers: the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the 2016 Honda HR-V in San Antonio. On your mark, get set, let’s compare!

When it comes to safety, both vehicles are fairly equal. Both the Outlander Sport and the HR-V come equipped with standard frontal, front-side impact, side-impact driver/passenger airbags, four-wheel anti-lock breaks, traction control, electronic stability systems and available all-wheel drive. However, the HR-V stands out just a little with its blind spot mirrors that use wide-angle convex mirrors mounted in the corner so you won’t miss a thing in your blind spot. The Outlander sport doesn’t have this system at all.

As far as passenger and cargo space goes, the HR-V has the Outlander beat. The HR-v has almost 3 more cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat up, and almost 10 more cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded. If you choose the HR-V, you won’t have to worry about leaving something behind on your next trip because of lack of space! In addition to more cargo space, the HR-V also has more passenger space than the Outlander Sport (2.6 more cubic feet, to be exact). Your cargo, and your precious cargo, will be much more comfortable in the Honda HR-V in San Antonio!

If you’re looking for an ultra reliable car, Honda has a history of being more reliable than Mitsubishi in several different ways. Firstly, there are 69% more Honda dealers than Mitsubishi dealers so should you ever have a problem with your HR-V, there’s a good chance you’ll find a dealer near by to quickly and efficiently help you out. Secondly, J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study showed that Honda ranks 8th in initial quality, while Mitsubishi ranks 30th. J.D. Power and Associates also conducted a dependability survey of owners with three-year-old vehicles and showed Honda ranks 5th while Mitsubishi ranks 15th.

The choice is clear, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport just doesn’t compare to everything that the 2016 Honda HR-V in San Antonio has to offer! If you agree, we’d love to see you in our Benson Honda showroom to see one for yourself or even take a test drive! See you soon!
