Breaking Records

Honda is reaching new milestones. In particular, the brand recently announced that it has one million vehicles with Honda Sensing® technology on the road right now in the US. Offering next-generation driver-assist safety technology, Honda Sensing® is an unparalleled system. Helping you to reduce damage and claim rates, this technology is the future of driving.

According to Honda, the brand will be providing Honda Sensing® technology standard on all 2022 model-year vehicles. The IIHS, Highway Loss Data Institute, and Honda recently worked together to publish scientific studies to show that Honda Sensing® is incredibly effective in reducing damage to other vehicles and property, and it can even reduce claim rates. Believe it or not, claim rates drop an average of 28% with Honda Sensing®.

“Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society and the Honda Sensing technology has a crucial role to play in advancing us toward that goal,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. “With the rapidly growing population of Honda vehicles applying these technologies, we hope to significantly reduce collisions involving Honda vehicles within the next three to four years.”

Where To Find It

The Honda Sensing® suite includes technologies such as Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, and Adaptive Cruise Control. You can find this suite standard on current models like the Clarity, the Accord, and the Insight.

Honda Wins Three 2018 Drivers’ Choice Awards from Motor Week

2018 Drivers’ Choice Awards
Honda Drivers Are On Board

Motor Week, commonly referred to as Television’s Original Automotive Magazine is an industry leader when it comes to reviewing vehicles. That’s why it comes as no surprise that Honda recently won three 2018 Drivers’ Choice Awards from Motor Week. Specifically, the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, and Honda Odyssey won in each of their respective categories.

2018 Drivers’ Choice Awards

Motor Week awarded the Honda Civic the 2018 Best Small Car award, which is the third year in a row that the Civic has won this specific award. With two new high-performance versions of the Civic — the Civic Si and Civic Type R Hatchback — drivers can now get a little-added power under the hood while still getting a great deal on a small car.

2018 Best Family Sedan Award

Next, the Honda Accord won the 2018 Best Family Sedan award. The Accord has the perfect combination of luxury and space, offering a four-door design that’s roomy enough for most families. There’s also a wide range of safety features, which is ideal for those who want added peace of mind on the road.

2018 Best Minivan Award

The 2018 Best Minivan award went to the Honda Odyssey, which Motor Week credits with saving the segment: “While the minivan segment is no longer the sales juggernaut that it once was; a big reason that it even still exists today is the Honda Odyssey.” Reliable and loaded with features, you can’t go wrong with the Odyssey.

Each of these award-winning vehicles is available for test drive at Russell Honda in North Little Rock, AZ now, and we would be happy to show them to you.
