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

  • Available Variable Torque Management 4-Wheel Drive, which allows maximized versatility and increased opportunities for adventures on and off the road

  • Variable-assist power steering, fully independent front and rear suspension, and front and rear stabilizer bars to fully enhance handling

  • Standard Bluetooth wireless connectivity, standard tri-zone air conditioning, an available navigation system, and available HomeLink system to take ergonomics to a whole new level

And these are just a few of the noteworthy features the 2015 Honda Pilot comes with. 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.  

If you're looking for a new SUV, Allen Honda definitely recommends the 2015 Honda Pilot. So, please get in contact with us if you're interested in the new Pilot, and feel free to get a quick quote online too!

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
