Overview of the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio

Fiesta Honda is excited to tell you that we have tons of options for the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio! It’s no surprise to anyone that this new Accord has really broken the boundaries of the affordable and comfortable mid-size car segment. If you’re a current Accord owner then you know what we mean, but if not, you’re in for a treat. Not only is this new Accord an award-winner, the Accord model has been around for more than 40 years now, so you know it is perfection!

So, what can you expect in this new Accord? Well, for starters the 2017 Accord has a grille design that will make you double take when you notice the (available) LED headlights and daytime running lights. The body style is elegant and bold with angular lines and beautifully designed wheels for the perfect combination of sophistication and confidence. It’s not just the headlights that are LED, the taillights are too for 360 degrees of an eye-catching vehicle.

Aside from the exterior, you have some interior features to look forward to. The interior is completely refined to make driving the Accord enjoyable. Features that were created for optimal driving comfort include the ergonomically-designed steering wheel with controls, 10-way adjustable memory seats, one-click shifting gears, a push start button, dual-zone AC, HomeLink®, and a functional center console complete with space for a tablet.

Because safety features are really what make or break a new car decision, let’s talk about those. Honda really had the consumer in mind when designing the new 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio, and it’s evident in the technology that was implemented. Honda created the Honda Sensing™ suite that will alert you of dangers outside the vehicle when you might not see them yourself. In addition to the Honda Sensing™ suite, there is the Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System and the Road Departure Mitigation System. To put it lightly, the Accord will keep you safe in a variety of scenarios!

Lastly, there is an Accord Hybrid option for those of you who are fuel-conscious. The Accord Hybrid gets an incredible 49/47-MPG city/highway* which really makes an impact considering competition doesn’t get more than 43 city MPG. The Accord Hybrid is making waves in the Hybrid category because not only is it fuel efficient, but it still gets 212 horsepower with the use of two motors! This is made possible by the fact that it can switch into Sport Mode for better acceleration.

Although we could go on and on about the 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio, it might be better for you to see the car in person at Fiesta Honda. Stop by today for a test drive and let one of our helpful associates tell you even more about this incredible new mid-size car!

2016 Optima vs. 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio

Searching for affordably priced sedans that air on the side of luxury? You’ve come to the right place! Fiesta Honda wants to assist you in making that new car decision. In fact, we’re going to do a comparison of two incredibly popular sedans of today: the 2016 Optima and the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio. Some have better safety than others, some have better performance capabilities, and we’re here to uncover exactly which car that is!

If it’s safety that you care most about in a car (most people do) then you’re better off going with the 2016 Accord. Although both have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, rearview cameras and lane departure warning systems, only the 2016 Accord was named a “Top Pick Plus” for 2015. The Institute for Highway Safety administers the safety tests to be named a “Top Pick” or “Top Pick Plus”, and the honor is only granted to 64 vehicles.

Like safety, these sedans in Round Rock are not created equal in fuel efficiency. With 27 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway*, the Accord takes the cake for better fuel mileage. The Optima only receives 25 MPG in the city and 37 on the highway. If you like spending less money and getting more bang for your buck, the Accord is the way to go!

Lastly, let’s talk about technology. Today’s affordable sedans have almost the same technology features as some luxury lines, and it doesn’t stop with either of these two cars! The Accord EX/EX-L/Touring has a standard remote vehicle starting system (so you don’t even have to leave your home to warm up or cool off your car)! Unfortunately, the Optima doesn’t even offer this feature in any model. The Accord also has several standard features that the Optima doesn’t have like speed-sensitive windshield wipers, standard automatic headlight on/off feature and standard dual zone air conditioning!

If we had to choose, we’d definitely be driving the 2016 Honda Accord in San Antonio for several reasons. Safety, MPG and technology are all important, but how about you take a test drive to seal the deal? Stop by Fiesta Honda today to get behind the wheel of this new Accord!

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!
