(Photo Credit: February is the season of love, and what better time than Valentine’s Day 2016 to think of the many reasons why we love Honda automobiles. For 50 years, Honda has built some of the most awarded vehicles on the road. So it goes without saying that there are plenty of people who simply adore their Hondas. Your South Florida Honda Dealers want to show Honda some love this Valentine’s Day by listing our 8 favorite reasons why you’ll love Honda automobiles.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Award-Winning Value

Year after year Honda automobiles top the charts for a great value. But we’re not the only ones to say it. Honda was named Kelley Blue Book’s “Best Value Brand” a remarkable four times in the last five years (2015, 2013, 2012, and 2011.) also named Honda an overall winner of its “2016 Best Buy” award and its “Best Value Brand” award in 2015. Hondas have also won more U.S. News & World Report “Best Car for the Money” awards in 2015 than any other automaker. Plus, the Honda Accord has been named Car & Driver Magazine’s “10Best” a record 30 times.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Legendary Reliability

Year after year, Honda cars just keep on going. If we didn’t know any better, we’d think that Hondas are related to that cute little toy rabbit with the drum who loves his long-lasting batteries. All kidding aside, the facts back up Honda’s legendary reliability. An IHS-Polk Automotive Research survey reveals that Honda is the most durable, longest-lasting brand in its class. According to IHS-Polk, more than 75% of all Hondas sold in the past 25 years are still on the road today. That means whether you purchase a new or Certified Pre-owned Honda from one of our South Florida Honda dealerships, you know you’re getting a car that will take you many miles down the road.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Safety

Nothing is more important to Honda than keeping you and your passengers safe. Honda automobiles consistently rank at the top of major auto industry safety awards. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan, Honda Accord Coupe, Honda Pilot, and the Honda CR-V crossover SUV their “Top Safety Pick+” rating. Six Honda models received the National Highway Transportation & Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 5-star safety award. The reason? Honda cars feature some of the most innovative and reliable safety features available in any automobile. Honda’s exclusive ACE™ Body Structure, for example, enhances occupant protection by letting the energy of a frontal collision distribute through the car’s frame more evenly. Honda’s are also equipped with the latest dual-stage, multiple threshold airbags. Select models are equipped with Honda’s exclusive SmartVent® front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensors. Honda Sensing® is an intelligent suite of cutting-edge driver-assist technologies that work together to prevent accidents from happening in the first place. They consist of Lane Departure Warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Collision-Mitigation Braking. And Honda was the first automaker to make a rear backup camera standard.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Contemporary Style

They say that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Behold, the beautifully styled 2016 Hondas. Take the all-new 2016 Honda Civic, for example. Just named “North American Car of the Year” by automotive journalists at the recent 2016 Detroit Auto Show, the Civic’s svelte, fluid design epitomizes its sporty, fun-to-drive attitude. Graceful lines, a bold new front end with LED lighting, and the Civic’s signature “C”-shaped taillights set it apart. 2016-honda-civic-taillights Take one look at the newly redesigned 2016 Honda Accord sedan, and you’ll fall in love with its curvaceous, sophisticated new look. Bold and beautiful, the new Accord wears an expressive new front end, aggressive dual exhausts, and dramatic rear taillights. The 2016 Honda CR-V also gets “high fives” for its handsome, sporty new looks. From its chrome-accented grille to its signature vertical tail lamps, the CR-V impresses with a thoroughly modern appearance.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Green Technology

Honda’s emphasis on the latest hybrid and all-electric technology takes you further than ever before. Honda’s vision is “cleaner air, cleaner skies.” Sustainability and environmentally responsible vehicles put Honda at the forefront of the green revolution. Honda’s groundbreaking 2016 FCX Clarity Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicles (coming soon) offer long-range driving with zero emissions, using the most abundant element in the Universe, hydrogen, to generate nothing but water from the tailpipe. Honda’s FIT EV uses no gas, produces no emissions, and takes you up to 105 miles on a full charge for an amazing EPA-estimated 118-MPGe combined rating. The Accord Plug-In gets identical mileage and range numbers as the much smaller, gas powered Fit, while the Accord Hybrid is the only car in its segment with a 50-mpg highway rating. The Honda Insight Hybrid gets up to 44 mpg on the highway. 2016-honda-fit Looking for a regular gasoline-powered Honda that’s great on gas? The urban-smart 2016 Honda Fit Hatchback gets up to an EPA-estimated 41 highway miles per gallon, and the 2016 Civic achieves up to an EPA-estimated 42 highway mpg. The 2016 Honda CR-V also pulls great fuel-efficiency numbers, getting up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway.
  1. You’ll Love Honda’s Performance

When it comes to engineering some of the world’s best engines, Honda gets you out in front. Take the new 2016 Honda Accord’s advanced i-VTEC® Earth Dreams V-6. It pumps out an authoritative 278 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. The award-winning Honda Civic rockets you to the head of the pack with its all-new 1.5-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine that makes up to 174-hp and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. But for the ultimate in power and performance, check out the redesigned 2017 Honda Ridgeline pickup, coming soon. The Ridgeline’s muscular 300 horsepower, 3.5-liter i-VTEC direct-injection engine has what it takes to get the job done, on-road or off-road.
  1. You’ll Love The Quality Of Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Honda Certified Vehicles are your guarantee of quality. If you’re in the market for a used Honda in South Florida, buying a Honda Certified Pre-Owned vehicle means you’re getting the “best of the best.” Each Honda Certified vehicle must pass a rigorous and meticulous 150-point mechanical inspection by certified Honda technicians. Components that do not meet Honda’s exacting standards are either reconditioned to factory specs or replaced with genuine Honda OEM parts. You’ll also love the savings when you buy a “like-new” Certified Honda that costs thousands less.
