2016 Sonata vs. 2016 Accord in San Antonio

If you know anything about the 2016 model year vehicles, then you know that they are game-changers in several ways! Whether you’re just dipping your toes in the search for a new car or you’ve been looking for a while, Fiesta Honda invites you to check out our most recent comparison, the 2016 Sonata vs. the 2016 Accord in San Antonio! We’ll be highlighting 5 car categories we believe are most important in the purchase of a new car so you can make the most educated decision. Here we go!

 

Safety

Both the Accord and the Sonata can tout acceptable safety ratings, but the Accord has Active Head Restraints that protect the front driver and passenger from whiplash, something that the Sonata doesn’t offer at all, which sets it apart. In addition to the whiplash protection, the Accord has available parking sensors and was given the top rating of “Good” in the overall evaluation for the IIHS frontal offset crash test. The Sonata does not have parking sensors, and was rated only “Acceptable” in the IIHS crash test.

Warranty and Reliability

Did you know that there are 73% more Honda dealers than there are Hyundai dealers? Getting your car serviced in your Accord is significantly more convenient than getting your Sonata would be.

The J.D. Power and Associate’s survey of owners of 3-year-old cars conclude that Honda cars were ranked 5th in reliability, while the Hyundai vehicles were ranted way low on the list, at 24th.

Power and Performance

With the most basic 2016 Accord engine, you’ll get 185 horsepower, which is great in the sedan market. With the Accord EX-L V6/Touring engine, you’ll be riding with 278 horsepower! On the other hand, the 2016 Sonata’s base engine gets only 178 horsepower, and it’s top-of-the-line 2.0 turbo engine gets just 245.

Towing Capacity

Yes, you read that correctly! The 2016 Accord, still in the sedan category, has a towing capacity of 1000 pounds! No need to borrow your brother’s friend’s truck the next time you need to pull something <1000 pounds. This is a perk that the Sonata unfortunately does not have!

Technology Features

It’s not a secret anymore that Honda just has overall better technology options and features than Hyundai. With this being the case and to save time, we’re listing technology features that the 2016 Accord offers as standard that the 2016 Sonata does not come standard with:

  • Standard remote vehicle starting system
  • Windows can be controlled from the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote
  • Standard speed-sensitive windshield wipers
  • Dual-zone air conditioning
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • Rear heating and cooling vents for backseat passengers

 

See what the hype is about concerning the 2016 Accord in San Antonio? The Accord is packed with jaw-dropping features that you just can’t get in the 2016 Hyundai Sonata! Fiesta Honda invites you to come try the new Accord out in person by stopping by the showroom today!

San Antonio Sedans: 2016 Accord vs. 2016 Altima

Find yourself searching for a brand new car? Fiesta Honda is here to help! We have the 411 on all of the new San Antonio Sedans and how they measure up across the board. There may be a couple of cars you have your eye on, but start fresh with this car comparison of the new 2016 Accord and the 2016 Altima!

The Altima has nothing on the Accord when it comes to safety because the Accord has two key safety features that the Altima doesn’t offer! We’re talking about the Collision Mitigation Braking System that has high-tech mounted sensors so when a potential collision is ahead, it alerts the driver immediately so they can take action. However, if the driver doesn’t respond to the warning, the brakes are applied automatically at full-force to reduce the impact of the crash. Additionally, the Accord has Daytime Running Lights to make sure the vehicle is visible at all times of the day!

The ergonomic features that the Accord offers are also unmatched by the 2015 Nissan Altima. For example, if you aren’t always the only person in the driver’s seat of your new sedan in San Antonio, the Accord EX-L/Touring has memory seats that are activated by the keyless remote and customized to fit your most comfortable seat position. The Altima doesn’t offer this on any model. The Accord also has standard windshield wipers that auto-adjust to the amount of rainfall, that way you aren’t distracted when driving through a rainstorm!

Lastly, the Honda Accord has some important publication recognition that the Altima doesn’t have. The Accord is recommended by Consumer Reports, was named a Car Book “Best Bet” and holds 3 Kiplinger’s Awards. The Altima is not acknowledged in either the Consumer Reports or Car Book, but does have 2 Kiplinger’s Awards.

After this comparison, you might only have eyes for the 2016 Accord. That isn’t surprising because out of these San Antonio Sedans, it tops the chart in style, safety and features! Get your hands on the wheel of this award-winning Accord at Fiesta Honda today and one of our helpful associates will be happy to help you!

2016 Nissan Altima vs. 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio

If you’re looking for a reliable and high-tech sedan, you’ve come to the right place. Not only does Benson Honda have plenty of fabulous options in stock, but we can back up our choices, too! Today we’re going to look at why the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio is unmatched next to the 2016 Nissan Altima.

 

You want to buy a car that is safe on the road, right? Although both sedans are safe, the 2016 Honda Accord has much better safety ratings. In the IIHS 40 MPG small overlap frontal offset crash test, the 2016 Accord had an overall “Good” evaluation and a “Good” rating for the lower leg evaluation. Meanwhile, the 2016 Altima had an overall “Acceptable” evaluation and a “Poor” lower leg evaluation. Also, the Accord was recognized by IIHS as a 2015 “Top Pick Plus.” The Altima? It was only a standard “Top Pick” and did not receive the highest score.

 

You’ll also have a smoother ride in the 2016 Accord. The Accord has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The Altima doesn’t offer this. The Altima also doesn’t offer the Accord’s drift compensation steering automatically switches to adjust to dangerous road conditions, which is something that could really come in handy this season!

 

If safety and a smooth ride are important to you but you’re more interested in the features, the 2016 Honda Accord beats the Altima in cool built-ins. With the Accord EX-L Touring, you’ll have memory seats that are activated with one touch of your keyless remote! For those rainy days, the Accord has standard windshield wipers that turn on and off according to the amount of rainfall, this is not available in the 2016 Altima. Lastly, although both sedans offer front heated seats, the Accord Touring has standard heated rear seats for those passengers in the back. No one is ever uncomfortable in the 2016 Honda Accord!
