2015 Crossovers in College Station: 8 Ways the CR-V Beats the Escape


Looking for the perfect 2015 crossover to park in your driveway? Allen Honda in College Station is here at your side with some key information about how two popular crossovers you may be considering compare. We've got the scoop on how the 2015 Honda CR-V and the 2015 Ford Escape stack up against each other. Here are eight of the new CR-V's advantages in comparison to its Ford competitor:

1. Things like an available collision mitigation braking system and lane departure warning system give the CR-V an edge when it comes to safety.

2. The CR-V's standard 4-cylinder engine produces 185 horsepower and 170 lbs.-ft. of torque. The new Escape's standard 4-cylinder engine only produces 168 horsepower and 170 lbs.-ft. of torque.

3. Continuously variable transmission conserves gas and improves engine performance in the 2015 CR-V. The 2015 Escape doesn't offer continuously variable transmission.

4. The CR-V offers a whopping 6 cubic feet of extra passenger space in comparison to the Escape.

5. The CR-V's cargo area is roomier: 35.2 cubic feet vs. 34.3 cubic feet.

6. With adaptive cruise control, the CR-V can automatically lower its own speed to avoid a collision when cruise control is activated. The Escape lacks this high-tech feature.

7. The CR-V's turning circle is 1.8 feet tighter than its Ford competitor's.

8. The 2015 Honda CR-V was named the 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year. The 2015 Ford Escape was not. 

There's even more to love about the CR-V in comparison to its rivals than we've covered here. Get in touch with us at Allen Honda to learn more or to schedule a test drive in a 2015 Honda CR-V!

2015 Honda CR-V in College Station: Motor Trend's Top Pick


2015 CR-V Accolades

As we mentioned in our previous post, the 2015 Honda CR-V is redesigned and en route to Allen Honda in College Station! We're quite excited about the CR-V's arrival, and we're excited to announce that the new Honda SUV won the title of Top SUV of the Year from Motor Trend! Motor Trend announced the 2015 CR-V's victory yesterday, and, since then, Honda enthusiasts have been abuzz!

The CR-V competed with top SUVs like the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, Porsche Cayman, and BMW X5 for the title, and it beat them all! This was definitely an accomplishment considering just how fierce the competition was. In order to be considered for the title, an SUV had to be redesigned for 2015. The 2014 Jeep Cherokee was also considered for the title because of its late 2014 release date.

Motor Trend cited the CR-V's impressive mechanics as well as its available safety features as compelling reasons for consumers to consider the new Honda. They took a liking to the 2015 CR-V's CVT, Earth Dreams engine, excellent fuel economy ratings, and its available lane departure warning system.

The 2015 CR-V is definitely expected to be a consumer favorite at our dealership. We'll let you know when the CR-V officially makes its debut in College Station. In the meantime, please check out the rest of the 2015 Honda lineup at Allen Honda. The whole 2015 Honda family has a ton to offer. You won't be disappointed with your options from Honda this year!

College Station Mid-Size Cars: 2015 Accord vs. 2015 Optima


2015 Mid-Size cars are arriving to dealerships and making waves on the road in College Station! The majority of the 2015 Honda lineup has officially arrived to Allen Honda, and we've been incredibly impressed with these new Hondas. If you're looking for a new mid-size car, we definitely recommend the 2015 Honda Accord. And, if you're wondering how the Accord compares to other popular mid-size cars, we have the answers you need. Below we've outlined some information regarding how the new Accord compares to one of its fiercest competitors, the 2015 Kia Optima. 

2015 Honda Accord: Highlights  

  • 2015 Accord EX-L and Touring models are equipped with standard collision warning systems and lane departure warning systems. Although the Optima does offer an available blind spot monitoring system, it doesn't offer these advanced safety systems.

  • The new Accord outperformed the new Optima in Consumer Reports speed tests.

  • The Accord comes with either manual transmission for better acceleration and control or continuously variable transmission (CVT) for better fuel efficiency and engine performance. The new Optima only comes with automatic transmission.

  • According to brake tests facilitated by Motor Trend, Car and Driver, Consumer Reports, and Road & Track, the Accord stops much shorter from high speeds than its Kia competitor.

  • Gas-charged shocks improve the way the new Accord handles. The Optima doesn't have gas charged shocks.

  • With computer-generated active noise cancellation, the 2015 Accord provides a quieter experience for occupants than the 2015 Optima, which doesn't have noise cancellation technology.

  • With up to 1000 pounds of towing capacity, the Accord stands out as more versatile than the Optima, which doesn't come with any towing capacity.

  • Standard dual zone air conditioning keeps things cooler in the Accord than the Optima, which only offers this feature at certain trim levels.

  • According to Intellichoice estimates, it costs $3,230 to $5,309 less to own the Accord over a five-year period that it costs to own the Kia Optima.

2015 Kia Optima: Highlights  

  • The new Optima received 5-star ratings in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) front driver and passenger crash tests. The Accord received 4-star ratings in these crash measures.

  • With standard fog lamps and power heated exterior mirrors, drivers of the Optima don't have to worry as much about fog and dew. The Accord doesn't come with these features.

  • The 2015 Optima has six speakers, while the 2015 Accord only has 4 speakers.

  • The new Optima's engine produces a little more horsepower than the new Accord's: 192 hp vs. 185 hp.

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: 


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).


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. 


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.
