Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda HRV in San Marcos

Posted by Megan Denny on Wed, Nov 23, 2016 @ 07:06 PM

The design and handling of SUVs has come a long way since they were first introduced to the market, and this is true of the 2017 Honda HR-V too. As a new crossover vehicle, the Honda HR-V in San Marcos, available at Honda of San Marcos, is a lower-cost, high-quality option to the Toyota RAV4, making it an easy choice for drivers looking for their next all-purpose ride.

With a 5-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it’s obvious that the 2017 Honda HR-V is a smart and safe choice. However, the 2016 Honda HR-V has also been named one of the Best Cars for Families by U.S. News and World Report, and a 2016 Green SUV of the Year by the Green Car Journal. If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s at the top of its class, the HR-V fits the bill.

In addition to accolades, the Honda HR-V is slimmer than the RAV4, making it easier to maneuver in tight spots and parking lots. However, this maneuverability doesn’t sacrifice interior room, and the Honda HR-V offers passengers more backseat room than the RAV4. When combined with the HR-V’s reasonable price point, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most popular SUVs available.

Honda of San Marcos invites you to stop by and test-drive a new Honda HR-V in San Marcos today. Our team of dedicated Honda Specialists is ready to put you behind the wheel of your next dream car. Find Your Honda HRV!

Awaiting the 2017 HR-V in San Marcos!

Posted by Megan Denny on Thu, Nov 10, 2016 @ 08:48 PM

 

Honda’s compact SUV, the HR-V, is gaining popularity among customers. Customers who need a little extra space but not a large vehicle love the HR-V. The 2017 model is not available for sale yet, but Honda of San Marcos has a few ideas of what you can expect. Get ready for the arrival of the 2017 HR-V in San Marcos!

This SUV is small but packed with power. Honda offers a 4WD version giving drivers confidence behind the wheel of the HR-V in rainy weather and tough terrain. We might see the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that is used in the Civic incorporated in the 2017 Honda HR-V. 

Newer design elements showed up in the 2017 HR-V model during car shows. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are standard on all models and disguised back door handles give the appearance that the HR-V is a two door. It is rumored that a moonroof will be standard on all models, but rest assured knowing you will be able to add it.

Honda added the 2nd row magic seat so you can transform the passenger space to fit almost anything in the HR-V. Expand cargo space with three modes to accommodate long objects like a surfboard or tall objects like plants. 

Added technology keeps you connected during your drive. Smart phone integration should be an option in the 2017 Honda HR-V. A larger infotainment system will be available – up to a 7-inch display screen. Navigation and Bluetooth should also be added to the HR-V.

We can’t wait to get the 2017 HR-V in San Marcos mid 2017. This compact SUV gives drivers all the space they could need without a huge car. Stay tuned for more information on the 2017 Honda HR-V at Honda of San Marcos.

Did the VW TDI Recall Affect You? Consider Purchasing a Honda!

Posted by Megan Denny on Tue, Nov 08, 2016 @ 04:25 PM

 

Whether you’re currently in the market for a new car or just an auto aficionado, you might have heard about the recent Volkswagen TDI recall. According to a notice by the EPA, Volkswagen TDI vehicles failed to comply with government regulations controlling the use of engine software that affects emissions control. The Volkswagen diesel recall occurred after the company received two notices from the EPA in September and November of last year. Although the company is currently working with government regulators to resolve the issue, the issue inconvenienced many VW drivers across the country.

While it’s important to note that the Volkswagen TDI recall has nothing to do with the safety or drive quality of the vehicles in question – they remain legal for driving and selling – some VW owners are reconsidering their choices. In light of this fact, Volkswagen has graciously given drivers the choice to fix the problem, sell back their vehicles, or terminate their leases. If you were affected by the Volkswagen TDI recall and want to try out a new ride, consider test-driving one of the brand-new fuel-sipping Hondas available at our dealership.

The Honda Accord Hybrid and Volkswagen Passat both posses similar features and design. Experience great gas mileage, technology and space in the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Some top Honda Accord Hybrid features to enjoy: 

  • 49 mpg city, 47 highway, 48 combined*
  • Honda Sensing package
  • Integrated Smartphone features
  • Push Button Start
  • LED Fog Lights and Daytime Running Lights
  • Bluetooth

We invite you to come check out the features and test drive a Honda Accord Hybrid today at Honda of San Marcos!

Features of the 2017 Honda Fit in San Marcos

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Sep 26, 2016 @ 09:17 PM

 

There are few things in this world that can compare to the feeling of owning a brand new car. As the 2017-year models roll into Honda of San Marcos, we can't help but want to relive that feeling over and over again! Lucky for you, you can take advantage of our 2017-year cars to have that feeling for yourself. We're anxious about one model in particular – the 2017 Honda Fit in San Marcos. This subcompact car packs a punch when it comes to features, and we can't wait to tell you about them!

 

Versatility

If there is one word to describe the 2017 Fit, it would be "versatile." The Fit can virtually transform from what looks like a vehicle on the smaller side to a cargo-packed vessel. A lot of this transformation has to do with the wonderful 2nd-row Magic Seat that gives you four modes to transform your Fit: Utility, Long, Tall and Refresh. With Utility Mode, you can get up to 52 cubic feet of cargo space. In Long Mode, you can transport long items like surfboards by folding down the rear and front passenger seats. Tall mode allows you to remove the headrests and fold seats to create more vertical space. And lastly, the front seats fold back and rear seats recline for Refresh Mode.

 

Technology

Honda is always taking its vehicles to the next level in technology. In fact, it's hard for other manufacturers to keep up! It's features like the available push start button, Honda LaneWatch, connected audio, Smart Entry, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation, voice recognition, and multi-angle rearview camera that make this subcompact car cutting-edge. You won't find a more high-tech car on the road!

 

Safety

As Honda says, "Peace of Mind Included." Whether you're buying the Fit for yourself or a loved one, you are safe in the Fit. Features like the ACE™ Body Structure helps distribute frontal crash energy more evenly to protect occupants, the Vehicle Stability Assist™ that help adjust brake pressure and engine power, and the Daytime Running Lights so you're visible in any time of light that keep you and family protected.

 

 

Interested in the versatility, technology and safety of the 2017 Fit? Honda San Marcos personally invites you out to explore your 2017 Fit options in store by taking it for a spin!

Anticipating the 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Marcos!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Wed, Sep 14, 2016 @ 07:26 PM

 

What's powerful, spacious, stylish and high tech? That would be the newest member of the Honda line up – the 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Marcos! Although it hasn't hit our Honda San Marcos store just yet, we're incredibly excited to welcome this new Civic to our showroom. We bet you want to know what is in store with this new car. Let's check out some key details of the 2017 Civic Hatchback!

 

The turbocharged engine in the new Civic Hatchback is something you could only dream of in a hatchback of this size. The 1.5L 4-cylinder engine has an available 6-speed manual transmission and produces an impressive 174 horsepower. And while we haven't seen an official unveiling in America just yet, the debut of the Honda Civic Hatchback at the Geneva Auto Show showed a hatchback prototype that we should expect to be very similar to the U.S. model.

 

According to an article by caranddriver.com, "The styling of the new Civic hatch has a slightly more conventional four-door appearance than that of the current model… To our eyes, this may be the best-realized iteration of the 10th-generation Civic styling. The model has been on sale in sedan form since last fall and is just now being joined by the two-door coupe. In making a bigger-than-usual break with its predecessor in terms of engineering and design, the new version, Honda hopes, will recapture the Civic's mojo after a couple of milquetoast designs."

 

 

In addition to the new styling and power, the Civic Hatchback will also have the latest and greatest in the automotive technology like Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and an information display touch screen. . So, as you can already see, we have a lot to look forward to in the new 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Marcos! Keep checking back to see when we have the newest member of the 2017 Toyota line up in stock, or shop other new options at Honda of San Marcos!

Exquisite Styling

The Hybrid has a sleek exterior to match it's innovative and cutting-edge interior. The bold, angular lines make it stand out as a stylish vehicle with a touch of sportiness! A birds-eye view of the Accord will show the one-touch power moonroof that would be perfect for a warm, sunny Cincinnati day or to let in some cool air in the fall. This hybrid wouldn't be top-of-the line without bright LED taillights with special blue accent lighting for that extra touch. The Accord Hybrid is available in 8 beautiful color options for you to show your personality whether it’s a chic White Orchid Pearl or a shocking Vortex Blue Pearl.

 

 

Unbeatable MPG

Now, you are probably considering a hybrid vehicle for several reasons, but we're guessing that part of the reason is because of their historically impressive fuel economy.
