Honda: Your Top Safety Pick Leader!

Friday, February 7th, 2014

If you tuned in to the SuperBowl, you probably saw the Honda Hugfest ad starring Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen. Fred Armisen cracked me up and the #hugfest message tugs at the heartstrings.  At Howdy Honda, our team would like to remind you that your choice to drive a Honda is not just about fuel economy, tech features such as HondaLink, your Push-To-Start button or comfortable seating (I mean these are all great things) but your choice is also a sound one. Your investment should protect the ones you love most, and that’s invaluable. You can put a price tag on a car but you cannot put a price tag on life.  We hope you never have to experience a crash and if you have, you realize the value of driving a SAFE vehicle.

And that’s why we are proud to sell Hondas. Honda has FOUR IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) TOP SAFETY PICK+ rated vehicles: The Honda Accord Coupe, Accord Sedan, Civic Sedan and Odyssey. More than ANY other brand, based on 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK ratings! In addition, The Civic Coupe received a TOP SAFETY PICK rating.

You can view MORE TOP SAFETY PICKs for 2014 at to compare brands. And if you’re ready to test drive a NEW Honda OR have questions regarding safety features and more, we are here to help! Do not hesitate to contact us!

2014 Honda Civic Coupe

The 2014 Civic is on its way to Howdy Honda! The Civic has been refreshed for 2014 with bold exterior styling updates and premium interior updates. The 2014 Civic made its debut last month at the Los Angeles SEMA show and it’s now on the market, just in in time for the new year!

New available features on the 2014 Civic include:

  • 7 inch capacitive touch-screen Display Audio
  • LaneWatch™ Blind Spot Monitor
  • Smart Entry
  • Push Button Start

The 2014 Honda Civic also features HondaLink™ Next Generation connected-car technology. HondaLink™ is an app-based platform that integrates your smartphone with your car for access to your online and cloud-based content. We previously posted HondaLink™ connectivity tips here.  Everything is at your fingertips with the combination of HondaLink™ and your touchscreen. An EX-L upgrade also offers a navigation system. With the Civic, you have options that span across the model offering. The sporty EX Coupe is one of my favorites!

An ALL new CVT is now available on the gas powered Coupe and Sedan. A CVT was previously restricted to hybrid models. The CVT provides for quicker and smoother acceleration and helps the LX Coupe and the LX and EX sedans with improved gas mileage of 2 mpg city and 1 mpg combined for EPA fuel economy ratings of 30/39/33 city/highway/combined.

In addition to cool styling, tech features and fuel economy you can drive the Civic with peace of mind. In 2013, the Civic not only earned the highest safety rating from the NHTSA, it was also the only vehicle in its class to earn the highest rating in the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) small overlap front crash test.
