Honda Tops Kelley Blue Book's Best Back to School Cars

Honda Tops Kelley Blue Book’s Best Back to School Cars

By | Honda Cars, Honda News | No Comments

School is officially back in session! To help you get ready for the new school year, Kelley Blue Book has put together their list of the Best Back to School Cars. Three Honda models made the list, making it the brand with the most cars represented. Read on to see why the KBB experts picked so many Honda models for its Best Back to School cars list!

The lowest ranking Honda model is the Honda HR-V coming in at number 4. Kelley Blue Book explains, “Honda’s newest, smallest SUV is the early leader in the burgeoning subcompact SUV segment. Mixing the roomiest, most flexible cabin in the group with all the goodness that accompanies the Honda badge, the HR-V is arguably the smartest choice in this increasingly popular segment. It’s also more stylish than its CR-V big brother, helping it win favor with the student set.” 

Coming in number 3, is the 2016 Honda Civic. The experts share, “Our Overall Best Buy for 2016 and tops on this year’s list of our favorite new cars, the boldly styled new Civic is among the roomiest, most comfortable, most fun to drive, most efficient, most feature-packed cars in the class. It’s also among the likeliest to make it through grad school, thanks to all the refinement, reliability and reputation that ride along with the Civic name and Honda badge.”

And which model takes the top spot? The 2016 Honda Fit! KBB experts report, “Still an unmatched mix of affordability, efficiency, versatility, reliability and fun, Honda’s subcompact car tops our annual list of 10 Best Back to School Cars once again. Positively cavernous inside, the Fit’s flipping/folding second-row Magic Seat makes it the most flexible car in its class. Standout styling and a lively demeanor add student-friendly sizzle, while strong resale value, a reputation for trouble-free ownership and a NHTSA 5-star Overall Safety Rating all speak to the hearts, minds and wallets of parents.”

The HondaJet Moves Into Production

The HondaJet Moves Into Production

By | Honda News | No Comments

Did you know that Honda may be making airplanes soon? We’ve shared the exciting news that the HondaJet received its European Certification and now we are excited to share that the HondaJet has officially received its Production Certificate from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (USFAA). The new jet, called the HA-420, will be built at its world headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina. Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino said about this monumental step, “This is a great achievement for our company as an aircraft manufacturer, and it is a very important milestone for ramping up production. Honda Aircraft has demonstrated our commitment to build aircraft of the highest quality and that meet stringent safety requirements. We also want to recognize the strong collaboration with the FAA during this rigorous approval process.”

With this certification, Honda Aircraft can officially produce, flight test, and issue airworthiness certificates for the HondaJet. Greg Benson, Manager of the FAA’s Manufacturing Inspection District Office in Atlanta had this to say, “Honda’s commitment of time, resources and people, and with the adherence to FAA regulations and guidance has provided Honda Aircraft Company the privilege to be awarded a Production Certificate for the HA-420 HondaJet. Honda Aircraft Company’s continued commitment to quality and safety will solidify its place within the aviation industry. This is certainly a commemorative moment for both Honda Aircraft and the FAA.

Honda Debuts New Ridgeline Commercial at Rio Summer Olympics

Honda Debuts New Ridgeline Commercial at Rio Summer Olympics

By | Honda News | No Comments

We recently shared the exciting news that the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is at our store and that it’s inclusion in the Honda lineup helped Honda’s June sales soar. It seems that the momentum has continued into July, with the total American Honda trucks sales hitting an all-time monthly record of 77,740 sales, a total increase of 10.1%. Almost 4,000 Ridgelines were sold last month alone. The Honda Division also enjoyed a new July total vehicle sales record of 139,125 vehicles sold, a 5.9% increase.

When Honda first debuted the Ridgeline commercial at the Superbowl, it was met with a lot of interest. If you’ll remember, “A New Truck to Love” featured singing sheep to show off the audio capabilities of the truck bed. Now Honda has released a new commercial and integrated marketing plan for the 2017 Ridgeline. Academy-award nominated stop-motion artist PES, who also created the “Paper” spot, has been called upon for the spot, which debuted at the Summer Games in Rio last Friday and is titled “The Power of Ridgeline“. Susie Rossick, Assistant Vice President of Marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc, said about the campaign, “A one-of-a-kind truck like the all-new Ridgeline deserves an innovative marketing campaign to communicate how this truck stands out among its competition. Our new campaign celebrates how Ridgeline defies convention whether used for recreation or work, to show consumers what sets it apart from the rest.” Check out the new video below:
