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!

2011 Honda Odyssey Earns 5 Star Overall Vehicle Score

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s best-possible overall vehicle score or five stars has been given to the all-new 2011 Honda Odyssey. The Odyssey is one of the first two vehicles ever to earn all five stars in all of the seating positions for every crash test, crash test category and the overall rating.

Very few vehicles have achieved the federal government’s best-possible overall vehicle score and five stars in the combined frontal and side crash safety ratings, but Honda has now scored twice with the Odyssey and the Accord.

The Overall Vehicle Score is a new system that is a part of the federal government’s New Car Assessment Program which is being applied to 2011 models. An overall score is a combined score from frontal crash tests, side crash tests and rollover-resistance.

The 2011 Honda Odyssey Sedan received five stars in the following categories, overall vehicle rating, overall frontal crash safety rating for male and female, overall side crash safety rating for all of the seats, and rollover rating.

The 2011 Odyssey offers higher fuel economy than previous models, as well as a more unique style. The new 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management which comes standard with every 2011 model. The new V-6 can produce 248 horsepower and an EPA estimated fuel economy of 19mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

A rear entertainment system that offers a 16.2 inch ultra wide split-screen display along with HDMI video input is available on certain models of the 2011 Odyssey. Other upgrades are available on certain models, and Benson Honda can make sure you go home with the one that is perfect for your family and your budget.

Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States in Alabama, the Honda Odyssey is unarguably an American Made Vehicle. Benson Honda is proud to offer this safe, fun and well-built vehicle in our lot.

Please stop by Benson Honda in San Antonio, Texas to check out a few of our brand new Honda Odysseys. We would love to send you home with one.
