Introducing the New 2017 CR-V in San Antonio

The anticipated release of the 2017 Honda CR-V is almost here, and Fiesta Honda will have it on our lot! While you wait to check the CR-V out in person, find out some of its newest features.

Expect more legroom in the new 2017 Honda CR-V! The 2016s already give passengers plenty of space, up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room, and now you get even more.

The larger CR-V size could also mean a larger engine is on its way. It’s likely to mirror the redesigned 2016 Honda Civics’ turbocharged engine. You can expect a 1.5 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which should beat the 2016 Honda CR-V EPA ratings of 26 MPG city, 33 highway and 29 combined for front wheel drive.

Along with these changes, the outer design will sport a sleek, more upscale feel. Features like LED lights, power lift gate, and pushbutton ignition come available depending on the model you choose.

Experience the Thrill of the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio TX

 

It’s time for you to get an SUV upgrade! May we offer some assistance with your new car decision? We have tons of new SUVs on the lot, but one has consistently impressed not only the Fiesta Honda employees, but our customers, too! With unbelievable fuel economy, features, power and more, the CR-V beats out competitor SUVs in several ways. Let’s take a dive into the details of how the 2016 Ford Escape doesn’t stand a chance next to the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio!

Firstly, let’s start with safety. The 2016 CR-V has multiple safety features that make it top of the chart in safety! Things like the Standard Collision Mitigation Braking System – a system in which uses forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision keep the whole family safe. Not to mention that the CR-V will brake automatically at full-force to reduce force of the crash if driver does not respond to the warning, preventing many accidents. You’ll also get a standard rearview camera in the CR-V! All of these elements contribute to the5-star driver crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test, 4-star passenger crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test and 5-star front seat side impact rating in the NHTSA side impact test. The Ford Escape does not include some of the safety features tat the CR-V does, earning it a lower score on crash tests.

Now let’s touch on technology. The 2016 Honda CR-V has top-of-the-line safety features that make it stand out amongst other SUVs, like the 2016 Escape. The CR-V has one-touch power windows, smart entry keyless remote (standard on the EX/EX-L and Touring), a standard locking fuel door with remote release, a built-in pollen filter and adaptive cruise control. Like the safety comparison, the Escape can’t keep up!

The Escape also can’t keep up when it comes to power. The CR-V has a whopping 185 horsepower while the Ford Escape just barely holds its own at 182 horsepower. We can’t forget to tell that even with more power, the CR-V gets better fuel economy with 25 in the city and 33 on the highway*. The Escape on the other hand gets just 22 city/32 highway.

As you can see, the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio clearly beats out the Ford Escape. And we don’t want to brag, but the CR-V has also won more recognition like being an IIHS “Top Safety Pick Plus” (the Escape is only a standard “Top Pick”), and it’s recommended by Consumer Reports. Make the smart decision and go with the new CR-V from Fiesta Honda! We know you won’t be disappointed!

New SUVs in San Antonio: 2016 CR-V vs. 2016 Rav4

 

Summer is just around the corner, a perfect time to road trip of the many new SUVs in San Antonio! With so many options to choose from, how do you know what SUV is right for you? Fiesta Honda is here to help you out with that decision. We’ve compiled some research on a couple of SUVs with the goal of showing you which one comes out as your ideal vehicle. Let’s look at the differences and similarities between the 2016 CR-V and the 2016 Rav4!

 

Is safety a #1 priority for you? The CR-V EX/EX-L/Touring has standard HondaLink Assist, which means it has a unique GPS system to alert emergency crews to come directly to the scene when airbags deploy. The Rav4 does not have this capability, which would delay help if you were to be involved in an accident. In addition to this helpful feature, the CR-V also has better safety ratings! With a 5-star overall rating in the NHTSA crash test, the CR-V can’t possibly get any safer. The Rav4 only has a 4-star overall safety rating.

 

In addition to safety, the CR-V has better fuel economy than the 2016 Rav4. This 185 horsepower SUV gets 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway*. With only 176 horsepower and 24 city/33 hwy MPG*, the Rav4 doesn’t quite keep up with the CR-V. Bottom line? You can have power and efficiency in the CR-V! How cool is that?

 

Finally, the CR-V has features that make the drive overall more comfortable than it would be in the Rav4. The telescoping steering wheel is much better than the Rav4’s tilt steering because it allows a short driver to sit further form the steering wheel while still maintaining contact with the pedals. Also, in the CR-V Touring, memory seats are an ultra convenient feature when you have multiple drivers regularly. The final feature worth noting is the CR-V’s adaptive cruise control. Unlike traditional cruise control (like what the Rav4 offers), the adaptive cruise control adjusts to the speed of the vehicle without the driver having to. That’s a major plus if you’re a frequent driver!

 

Out of these two new SUVs in San Antonio, the CR-V reigns superior! Can you see yourself cruising the streets in a new 2016 CR-V? We surely can and would love for you to stop by Fiesta Honda today for a test drive!
