2015 Honda Lineup in College Station

 

Over the past few months, Honda has been very busy releasing more of its 2015 lineup of cars. As of today, the automaker has deployed five members of its 2015 roster of cars: the 2015 Accord, 2015 Fit, 2015 Odyssey, 2015 Pilot, and 2015 Crosstour. All of these vehicles have either arrived or will be arriving shortly to Allen Honda in College Station. If you think you might be interested in a 2015 Honda, here's a little information about the current members of the 2015 Honda family:  

2015 Honda Accord 

2015 Honda Accord

This isn't a redesigned model, but it does come with a standard backup camera and some additional high-tech features and add-ons, including an available audio touchscreen that offers access to streaming content, Aha apps, Pandora, and more.  

2015 Honda Crosstour  

2015 Honda Crosstour

Honda didn't redesign the new Crosstour this year either. Like the Accord, the Crosstour comes with a new backup camera and some additional high-tech add-ons that make it an even more appealing choice.  

2015 Honda Fit  

2015 Honda Fit

As you may already know, the new Fit is completely redesigned. It comes with updated interior and exterior styling, additional safety features, new high-tech specs, a backup camera, and a next generation advanced compatibility engineering body structure to maximize safety.  

2015 Odyssey  

2015 Honda Odyssey

The Honda Odyssey joins the new Crosstour and Accord as members of the 2015 lineup that aren't much different from their 2014 predecessors. The 2014 Odyssey was totally redesigned. So, this is no surprise. It's no surprise, either, that the 2015 Odyssey was already recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with a five-star safety rating.  

2015 Pilot  

2015 Honda Pilot

The 2015 Pilot comes with a new backup camera and an all-new Special Edition trim level. The Special Edition Pilot has special badging, a one-touch power moonroof, Sirius XM Radio, and a DVD rear entertainment system.

2014 Nissan Quest vs. 2015 Honda Odyssey in College Station

 

Looking for a new minivan that goes the extra mile? You may be choosing between the 2014 Nissan Quest and the 2015 Honda Odyssey. Allen Honda in College Station is here to assist you as you decide between these top minivans. Here's a rundown of how they compare in terms of performance, protection, and extras: 

Performance

Although the 2014 Quest does offer continuously variable transmission, which enhances acceleration, it hardly outperforms its Honda competitor on the road. The Odyssey trumps the Quest in a number of ways in terms of performance.

For instance, the Honda minivan's V6 engine produces 10 lbs.-ft. more torque than its Nissan competitor's. Plus, Car and Driver determined the Odyssey accelerates faster than the Quest. The Odyssey also comes with bigger tires and front and rear gas-charged shocks, which improve handling. And, according to EPA estimates, the Odyssey gets up to 28 mpg on the highway, while the Quest only gets up to 25 mpg. (Based on estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Mileage will vary).

Protection

Select Quest models come with 360-view monitors, which allow drivers to see objects near their minivans from all angles. The Odyssey offers a somewhat less comprehensive view of its surroundings with a backup camera and available rear parking sensors. In other ways, however, the Odyssey stands out as the safety leader.

For example, the Odyssey offers daytime running lights, an available collision warning system, and an available lane departure warning system. Plus, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety considers the Odyssey a Top Safety Pick Plus. The new Quest wasn't awarded this distinction. 

Extras

A few ergonomic perks like extendable sun visors enhance the Quest's appeal. However, the Odyssey definitely comes out on top when it comes to extras. An available in-vehicle vacuum, a center folding armrest for third row passengers, and an available HondaLink system that provides easy access to smartphone content and apps distinguish the Odyssey. Plus, the new Honda Odyssey offers standard Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Only certain trim levels of the Quest offer this key feature.

Now that you know how the new Honda Odyssey shines in comparison to the new Nissan Quest, why not schedule a test drive at Allen Honda?

8 Reasons the 2015 Pilot in College Station Beats the 2015 Enclave

 

Are you interested in both the 2015 Honda Pilot and the 2015 Buick Enclave? There are compelling reasons to consider both of these SUVs. Only one of the 2015 vehicles, however, truly comes out on top. Allen Honda believes the new Pilot takes the cake in comparison to the new Enclave. Here are 8 reasons why:

1. According to Intellichoice, the 5-year ownership costs of the Honda Pilot are between $6,416 and $7,258 less than the ownership costs for the Buick Enclave.

2. The new Pilot boasts key safety features like active head restraints, optional parking sensors, and airbag-connected speed and passenger weight sensors. The Enclave doesn't come with these top safety features.

3. Computer-generated active noise cancellation keeps the passenger area of the Pilot quiet and peaceful. The Enclave doesn't come with noise cancellation technology. 

4. Consumer Reports data indicates that the 2015 Honda Pilot is 18% more reliable than the 2015 Buick Enclave.

5. Front and rear gas-charged shocks help you control the Pilot easily, even on choppy roads. Unfortunately, the Enclave doesn't offer gas-charged shocks.

6. The Pilot has 2.6 more cubic feet of passenger space than its Buick competitor, but it also weighs 300 to 450 pounds less and is 10.5 inches shorter. That means there's more room for passengers in the Pilot and that it handles better because of its smaller size.  

7. In terms of maneuverability and performance versatility, the new Pilot is the top dog. Its turning circle is 2.5 feet tighter than the Enclave's, and it offers a ground clearance that's .4 inches higher than the Enclave's.   

8. The Pilot's corrosion warranty is valid for an unlimited number of miles, which helps give you some added peace of mind. The Enclave's corrosion warranty is only valid for 100,000 miles.

Honda HR-V in College Station

 

2015 Honda HR-V

Who's ready for a new addition to the Honda lineup? Allen Honda is! So, we're pretty pumped to fill you in on the newest member of the Honda family: the 2015 Honda HR-V. The HR-V is a mini SUV that's a little smaller and better-suited for some city slickers than the Honda CR-V. And it's headed to our dealership this winter!  

Honda hasn't released all of the details regarding the HR-V's specs just yet, but we do know some essential facts about this new Honda. For starters, it's going to look a bit like both the CR-V and the Fit in terms of both its exterior and interior design. It's also going to come with super stylish and sophisticated hidden rear door handles.    

Plus, the new HR-V will come with Honda's famous Magic Seat, a feature formerly only offered in the Fit. This will allow for an unprecedented amount of cargo room that will likely position the new Honda at the top of the heap in its class in terms of the space it offers for cargo.  

The 2015 HR-V will also have a center-tank layout, which will increase the overall amount of interior space the car offers. Details about the new HR-V's powertrain, fuel economy, and other performance features are forthcoming. We'll let you know as soon as we know more!  

Interested in the HR-V but looking for a new car right now? Check out what we have at Allen Honda, and feel free to get a quick quote from us online!

Honda Summer Cheerance in College Station

 

It's hot outside, and this summer's been a long one. We hope you've had plenty of opportunities to hit the beach, hang out at the pool, and catch some rays. If you've spent most of your days hard at work at the office, though, like many of us have, you may be in need of some extra cheer in your life. Fortunately, Honda's here to the rescue to bring you some extra joy for their Honda Summer Cheerance Event this week!  

In case you haven't heard, the Honda Summer Cheerance Event is a brand new Honda project that's happening this week until the end of the day today. Honda's been posting up a storm on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube for this project in order to spread cheer to three million people.  

In addition to posting funny things on social media and posting cheer-inducing videos on YouTube, Honda has also been giving random people the chance to do fun things like hit piƱatas and search for buried treasure. Plus, YouTube phenomenon Andrew Hales has even created a few awesome videos to help Honda spread cheer. And Honda even created a Cheerance Pandora station, which is full of happy and uplifting tunes.  

To culminate Cheerance, Honda will be giving $100,000 to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. This foundation supports research to aid in the prevention and treatment of pediatric brain tumors. It's a foundation that does a whole lot of good, and Honda is proud to support it.  

The Honda Summer Cheerance Event isn't the only Honda event happening now. Honda is also currently running their Summer Clearance Event, which could save you big bucks on a new Honda. We encourage you to check out the current Summer Clearance Event specials at Allen Honda, and get a quick quote from us!

2015 Honda Pilot in College Station

 

2015 Honda Pilot

Allen Honda has officially rolled out the red carpet in College Station for the 2015 Honda Pilot! The new Pilot joins the 2015 Fit as the second addition to the 2015 Honda lineup. And this SUV is already making a name for itself on the road. Here are some key features the new Pilot offers that distinguish it in its class:  

  • A standard V6 engine that produces 250 horsepower and uses Honda's Variable Cylinder Management System (VCM) to conserve fuel by automatically shutting down half of its cylinders when the Pilot needs less power

We'd also like to mention that Honda has introduced a whole new trim level with their new flagship SUV: the 2015 Honda Pilot Special Edition. The Special Edition Pilot offers some cool extras like a DVD rear entertainment system, sporty alloy wheels, a one-touch power sunroof, and Sirius XM radio.

2014 Venza vs. 2014 Crosstour in College Station

 

 

Allen Honda is here again to bring you a comparison of two popular cars to aid you in your car buying process. This time around, we'd like to take a closer look at how the 2014 Toyota Venza and 2014 Honda Crosstour compare. Here's the difference between the two cars in terms of performance and safety: 

Performance: 2014 Venza vs. 2014 Crosstour

Both the 2014 Venza and the 2014 Crosstour offer a number of performance benefits. The 2014 Venza, for instance, stops shorter than the 2014 Crosstour in Consumer Reports tests, and the Venza has larger tires than the Crosstour, which may allow for better traction control in some circumstances. Plus, the Venza offers 1.9 inches more ground clearance than the Crosstour. Despite these benefits, however, the 2014 Crosstour outshines the Venza in the performance department for a number of reasons.

Specifically, the new Honda Crosstour's standard 4-cylinder engine produces 11 more horsepower than the new Toyota Venza's standard 4-cylinder engine (192 hp vs. 181 hp). And the new Honda crossover's V6 engine produces 10 more horsepower than the Venza's V6 engine (278 hp vs. 268 hp). Plus, the Crosstour gets up to 31 mpg on the highway. The Venza only gets 26 mpg. (Based on 2014 EPA estimates. Mileage will vary. Use for comparison purposes only). Performance features like computer-generated active noise cancellation, front and rear gas-charged chocks, and variable-assist power steering are the icing on the cake in terms of what the Crosstour offers in comparison to the Venza.

Safety: 2014 Venza vs. 2014 Crosstour

The Venza and the Crosstour both offer important safety features like traction control, front and side airbag protection for front seat occupants, front-wheel drive, and electronic stability systems. However, only the Crosstour stands out as the safety leader of the two. First of all, the new Crosstour has smart airbags, which can detect the weight of passengers and safely tailor their deployment force based on what's safest for those passengers. Additionally, the Crosstour offers an available collision warning system as well as an available lane departure warning system. And the new Honda was given a safety rating of 9.7 by U.S. News and World Report, while its Toyota competitor was only given a rating of 9.3.

If we've sparked your interest in the 2014 Honda Crosstour, consider scheduling a test drive at Allen Honda
