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!

San Antonio Hybrid Car News: New Honda Hybrid Concept

Honda Concept B Hybrid

Benson Honda is here with the latest Honda news and updates, and we’re excited to introduce you to Honda’s new hybrid concept, their Concept B Hybrid. Last month, they unveiled this cool new car at the Beijing Motor Show, and, since then, Honda enthusiasts and car buffs around the world have been abuzz.

Bolder in design than anything currently in the Honda lineup, the Concept B Hybrid definitely turned heads at the Beijing Motor Show. The car’s current exterior is sporty and sleek overall with an aggressive, large front grill and an elegantly curved hatchback rear. Honda representatives at the motor show mentioned that they think the car’s unique design will be one of its greatest (and many) strengths.

The automaker didn’t release any details about the new car’s powertrain or fuel efficiency. The hybrid will have to comply with stringent Chinese fuel economy regulations. So, we definitely think it will save its owners on gas and do the environment a favor.

As of now, Honda only has plans of releasing the new hybrid vehicle in the Chinese market. They’ve announced that they anticipate it to arrive to Chinese dealerships in two years. We hope Honda will consider adding this awesome new car to the North American lineup!

Honda Accord News from Your San Antonio Car Dealer

2014 Honda Accord

Benson Honda, your San Antonio car dealer, is proud to announce that the Honda Accord broke a new record this past year. In 2013, for the first time ever, more Honda Accords were produced in North America than Toyota Camrys. The Toyota Camry is often thought of as the Accord’s primary rival. So, this is quite an accomplishment for the Honda mid-size vehicle.

Last year, a total of 466,695 Honda Accords were built on the assembly line at Honda’s plant in Ohio, which marked almost a 20% increase in Accord production from the previous year. Only 445,973 Toyota Camrys were produced in 2013 at the Toyota plant in Kentucky.

This spike in Accord production directly correlates to the increase in public interest in the Accord (and all Hondas, for that matter) in North America and beyond. Approximately 100,000 of the Accords produced in Ohio last year were exported to markets like South Korea and Russia. The rest of the Accord fleet was sold in the U.S.

Worldwide, Toyota produces the greatest number of vehicles of any automaker, which makes this recent Honda accomplishment particularly noteworthy. Honda’s Accord production expansion in 2013 might be a sign that the automaker has plans to position itself as the world’s most prolific automaker.

In other Honda Accord news, Kelley Blue Book recently named the 2014 Honda Accord one of the 12 Best Family Cars of the year. The Accord was also named a Top Safety Pick + by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was given the Green Car of the Year title from Green Car Journal. It’s no wonder international interest in the Accord is on the rise and Accord production numbers are skyrocketing!
