The Honda Civic Hatchback has long been a fun and sporty car to drive, delivering great thrills and versatile space. Toyota has tried to get in on the action by launching a hatchback version of the Toyota Corolla. So how does this new entrant stack up against the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback? According to The News Wheel and Car and Driver, not quite well.
Before naming the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback the undisputed winner, Car and Driver pitted the two models against one another in several head-to-head challenges. The Civic Hatchback outperformed the Corolla Hatchback in most tests, including acceleration, braking, and handling. The testing crew also noted that the Civic Hatchback either had equal or superior fuel economy to the Corolla Hatchback. As for the interior, judges preferred the Civic Hatchback’s instrument cluster, practical rear seats, and cargo area.
“While other solid entries make for a highly competitive compact-car space, the choice between the latest Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla hatchbacks is pretty cut and dry,” remarked Mike Sutton of Car and Driver. “Along with the Civic lineup being broader as a whole, Honda’s hatch remains attractively priced, better packaged, and far more rewarding to operate . . . The Civic is simply the more satisfying machine for the money.”
It’s that time of year when everything turns green and no,
we don’t mean it’s spring just yet! It is almost time to celebrate St. Patrick’s
Day – and what better way to do so than with a parade?
What To Expect
Every year, North Little Rock holds a St. Patrick’s Day Parade, organized by the Irish Cultural Society of Arkansas. The parade acts as a celebration of Irish culture, featuring marching bagpipe bands, Irish music, decorated floats, antique cards, Irish wolfhounds, and even St. Patrick himself.
The North Little Rock St Patrick’s Day parade will begin at
the crossroads of Sixth Street and Main Street in downtown North Little Rock.
From there, it will travel through the Argenta Arts District, cross the
Arkansas River over the Main Street Bridge, and travel east on President
Clinton Avenue. It will then turn south on Sherman Street and end at third and
Cumberland Streets in Little Rock. So, if you plan on coming by to feel the
luck o’ the Irish, make sure you set up your seats along that route.
The Celebration Continues
Following the parade, you can continue the celebration with
the “Dancing at the Crossroads” event. Enjoy traditional Irish dance
performances and music from marching pipe and drum bands that are sure to get
your toes tapping.
Here at Russell Honda, we hope you and your crew have an
enjoyable St. Patrick’s Day.

The New Year is officially upon us, and it’s time to put together our New Year’s resolutions. When putting together your resolutions, it’s important to make concrete, measurable goals to hold yourself accountable. Here are a few of our favorite New Year’s resolutions at Russell Honda.
Learn a new skill
Adopt an entirely new skill this year. Try something you’ve always wanted to do, such as dancing or snowboarding. Learn a new card trick or how to make a new recipe the whole family will enjoy. Whichever skill you learn, you’ll be able to carry it over each year.
Read 12 books
Instead of resolving to “read more,” make your goal a little more concrete. Consider setting a goal to read one book per month. You can pick from a variety of different genres, including fiction, poetry, and biographies.
Reduce distractions while driving
Modern technology makes it easy to get distracted behind the wheel. Instead of driving with your phone in your lap, lock it in the glove compartment before you even put your keys in the ignition.
From all of us at Russell Honda, we wish you a safe and happy 2019. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle to start 2019 off right, visit our showroom or give us a call to schedule a test drive.
