Civic is bringing the Hatch, back!

For decades, the Honda Civic has been one of the most popular compact cars on the road. With its Honda reliability, reasonable pricing and sporty style, the Civic has dominated the market. And now the Civic is at it again, already released are the 2017 Civic sedan and coupes, and now we’re getting the hatchback.

For the first time in over a decade, Honda will offer the Civic in a hatchback since the seventh-generation model. Honda plans to use the Civic hatchback as the base for their upcoming Civic Type R and the Civic Si, the two performance Civics that are due to come out in the up in the future. In the past the hatchback was the dominant body style for smaller cars, because small trunks were impractical. But as SUVs and crossovers became more popular, consumers went that route for having cargo space in their vehicle. But by popular demand, Honda is bringing the hatch back.

The Civic Hatchback will be available in LX, EX, EX-L, Sport and Sport Touring models and will all have the same turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4 engine. The LX, EX and EX-L models will deliver 174 hp with 162 lb-ft torque and 180 hp and 162 lb-ft torque for the Sport and Sport Touring models. Honda gives you choice of a 6-speed manual or CVT transmission, and getting an anticipated EPA-rated fuel economy of 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*. The new Civic hatchback has a staggering 122 cubic feet of room for cargo and passengers, up 13 cubic feet from the 2016 sedan.

The New 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is here now with the Civic Type R and the Civic Si Coming in late 2017. Until then check out our inventory of Civics and contact us now to schedule your test drive!

Honda Pilot adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

                One of the biggest selling features these days in a new automobile is the ability to pair your smartphone to your car, whether for music, navigation or hands free text and calling.  And now the 2017 Honda Pilot is answering that demand plus other great features.

                The 2017 Honda Pilot will pack both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto inside the Display Audio touchscreen infotainment system. Allowing your smartphone to pair with your car and allow hands free usage. The Pilot will still come in its same 5 trim levels, the LX, EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite. Packing the same whopping 280-horsepower V6 and coupled with either six or nine speed automatic transmission, depending on trim level.  Buyers will have to spend a bit more for the new 2017 Pilot, $200- $300 depending on the trim level that they choose

                The new smartphone mirroring feature on the Pilot comes standard on all models except for the base LX model, but that is only because the LX has a smaller 5.0–inch touchscreen versus the other models having an 8.0-inch touchscreen on the dash board. Another cool feature on the new Pilots is the touchscreens have a different coating on them to minimize fingerprint smudges. High powered USB ports make it quick and easy to charge your devices. One of the most requested things about the new Pilot by owners is the combination of the White Diamond Pearl exterior matched with black interior on all trim levels, previously beige was the only interior available with the White Diamond Pearl Exterior. Different packages are available for upgrades on most models, some packages that come standard on the Elite and Touring models. Packages like the Honda Sensing package, rear-seat entertainment system and built in navigation.

                The new Pilot hit dealership lots on November 7th. Check out our Inventory to see them and contact us today to schedule your test drive and take yours home now!
