Why The New Accord Is The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

It’s hard to beat your dad. He’s the consummate Fixer Of Broken Stuff, Reader of Bedtime Stories, Griller Of Great Renown, and Killer Of Yucky Bugs. He’s always been there to tie your shoelaces, play catch in the backyard, or help you with your homework. Although your dad may have some weaknesses, they are nothing compared to his strengths. In other words, your dad is about the most perfect person you know.

You know, dad’s been driving that car of his for a long time; years in fact. And it’s getting to be a bit rough around the edges. The seats are worn, the paint is fading, it leaks oil, and is generally falling into disrepair.

Sounds to us like your dad needs a new car. And we can’t think of a more perfect Father’s Day present than to surprise Pop with a brand-new 2016 Honda Accord sedan from your favorite Gainesville Honda new car dealership, Honda of Gainesville.

There are many reasons why the newly redesigned 2016 Honda Accord is the perfect fit for your dad. First of all, let’s talk about style. Your dad is a handsome guy who gets admiring looks wherever he goes. Well, what better car for your fashion-forward father than the fantastic-looking new Accord?

A string of brilliant new available LED headlights frames the Accord’s wide chrome grille. The muscular lower fascia help improves aerodynamics.

A Stellar Award Winner

After all, last year’s redesigned 2015 CR-V won one of the automotive industry’s most prestigious awards, Motor Trend Magazine’s coveted “SUV of the Year.” The publication’s panel of judges pitted the 2015 CR-V against some of the best SUVs and crossovers in the world. Despite this fierce competition, the 2015 CR-V came out on top, earning praise for its ride, handling, responsive engine, and newly remodeled interior.

“After two hours of contentious debate, the CR-V’s stellar value, engineering, and safety features combined with the cheerful way it performs its intended functions earned Honda the win,” said Motor Trend.

So why mess with a good thing? Lucky for us, Honda didn’t. Primarily carried over from last year’s award-winner, the 2016 Honda CR-V continues the automaker’s winning ways by offering a capable, stylish, versatile, and fuel-efficient crossover SUV that handles and rides like a car, but gives buyers the added flexibility and cargo capacity of an SUV.

Whether heading over to the coast for a quick weekend getaway or just down to the mall, the CR-V gives you the room you need, the performance you crave, and the fuel economy that will keep more cash in your pocket. Continue reading

2015 Honda CR-V Takes “SUV of the Year” Honors

Much like the Oscars is to movies, earning Motor Trend Magazine’s “Golden Calipers” is the most prestigious award in the automotive industry. So without further ado, “the envelope, please” as we proudly announce that the new 2015 Honda CR-V has won the coveted prize as Motor Trend’s 2015 “SUV of the Year.”

2015 Honda CR-V

Achieving this pinnacle of recognition is no slam dunk. The new CR-V compact crossover went head-to-head in a grueling evaluation, pitted against such worthy competitors as the BMW X4 and X5, the Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, Ford Expedition, Lincoln MKC, Nissan Rogue, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Subaru Outback, and Volvo XC60. Judges graded the contenders on a variety of factors, including exterior and interior styling, innovative vehicle packaging, performance, fuel efficiency, safety, value, and engineering excellence.

Accolades for engineering excellence
The judges gave accolades to the new CR-V’s powertrain which improved its “fun quotient. The engine, a new “Earth Dreams” 2.4 liter, generates 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft worth of torque. It’s mated to a silky continuously variable transmission (CVT) that delivers smooth acceleration around town and “snappy” downshifts for effortless passing; delivering 0-60 times in the respectable 8.5 second range. One judge praised Honda’s “return to form as a company known for making some of the best engines in the business.” This combination delivers improved fuel economy of up to 12% with 26/33 mpg EPA-estimated city/highway numbers.

Numerous suspension and chassis upgrades drew positive reaction from the judges as well. One judge exclaimed: “This feels like a Honda should, with light steering, great feedback, and competent handling chops. It is way more fun than any compact crossover ought to be.” The CR-V also received applause for how its on-demand All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system handled the test track’s steep, silty gravel hill with “minimal fuss.”

Interior and safety earn top scores
The new 2015 Honda CR-V also scored high marks for its well-packaged interior, which affords improved second-row legroom and expands cargo space to 70.9 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded flat. The side doors open at a nearly 90-degree angle, making it easy to access. The Honda’s well-though-out controls achieved high marks for functionality and intuitive ease-of-use, including its standard rearview backup camera and 7-inch multi-function display.

The Motor Trend judges also gave high marks for the CR-V’s extensive safety features. These include reinforced hot-stamped, high-strength steel for improved structural rigidity and available “Honda Sense” suite of advanced safety features (available on the Touring model). They include collision mitigation brake support, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.

Ultimate, the new 2015 Honda CR-V earned this hard-fought victory by outclassing the competition for SUV of the Year honors with its “stellar value, engineering, and safety features.”

Any way you look at it, the 2015 Honda CR-V SUV compact crossover is a winner. Just ask Motor Trend Magazine.
