The 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati is Almost Here!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Tue, Oct 04, 2016 @ 09:27 PM



It seems like just yesterday that Honda announced the first generation Honda Fit, but that was 10 years ago and this versatile and fun is back for it's 10th year in America! In recent years we've seen this hatchback receive tons of recognition such as "Kelley Blue Book's 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2016" and "Best Hatchback for the Money by U.S. News & World Report. As we celebrate the return of our favorite subcompact hatchback, Honda East will talk about what we have to look forward to in the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati.


Class-leading cargo space will continue on into the 2017 model year with 52.7 cubic feet with rear seats down and the ever-intelligent Magic Seat that optimized that amount of cargo space by folding the seat down. You'd hardly believe by looking at the outside that you get 95.7 cubic feet in passenger space with 39.6 inches of rear seat leg room, but it's true! The Honda Fit is a lot of things, but uncomfortable is not one of them.


A main reason people become enamored with the Honda Fit is undoubtedly the fuel-economy. You can expect to get 29 city/36 highway MPG* for manual transmission, 33 city/40 highway MPG* for the LX trim with CVT and 32 city/37 highway for the EX and EX-L trim with CVT. Its apparent going far won't be a problem, but you'll also get there fast with its 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers a powerful 130 horsepower.


So far we know that the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati will be comfortable, roomy, fue-efficient and fast, but we also should mention that it's cutting edge, too. A few things you will see in this upcoming Honda Fit are:


  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering
  • Honda LaneWatch (standard on EX and up)
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • LED brake lights
  • Push Start Button
  • Automatic on/off headlights
  • And more!


We don't have an exact date of arrival for the 2017 Honda Fit in Cincinnati, but as you can probably tell, it's going to be worth the wait. Honda East is excited to see what awards this new Fit will win this year, but until then, shop our 2016 award-winning Fit options!  Contact Us!

Updates on the 2017 Civic Hatchback in Cincinnati!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Tue, Oct 04, 2016 @ 01:01 PM



It is almost impossible to miss the hype about the 2017 Civic Hatchback in Cincinnati. Arriving for the first time in the U.S., this Hatchback is already wowing car buyers with its leading-edge styling, features and power. While it's not available just yet in stores (it's expected to be late 2016), Honda East has some info that you might find helpful in considering this new hatchback!



The turbocharged engine in the new Civic Hatchback is something you could only dream of in a hatchback of this size. The 1.5L 4-cylinder engine has an available 6-speed manual transmission and produces an impressive 174 horsepower. And while we haven't seen an official unveiling in America just yet, the debut of the Honda Civic Hatchback at the Geneva Auto Show showed a hatchback prototype that we should expect to be very similar to the U.S. model.


European-inspired Styling

According to an article by, "The styling of the new Civic hatch has a slightly more conventional four-door appearance than that of the current model… To our eyes, this may be the best-realized iteration of the 10th-generation Civic styling. The model has been on sale in sedan form since last fall and is just now being joined by the two-door coupe. In making a bigger-than-usual break with its predecessor in terms of engineering and design, the new version, Honda hopes, will recapture the Civic's mojo after a couple of milquetoast designs."


Latest and Greatest Technology

In addition to the new styling and power, the Civic Hatchback will also have the latest and greatest in the automotive technology like Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and an information display touch screen. Get used to driving - everyone will want to ride with you in this innovative, high-tech hatchback.


Power, impressive styling and leading-edge technology features – the 2017 Civic Hatchback in Cincinnati is truly a unique and inspiring vehicle! Keep checking back on the Honda East site to get more details on the new Hatchback or shop our current Honda options!

2017 Camry vs. 2017 Accord in Cincinnati

Posted by Jessica McFall on Wed, Sep 21, 2016 @ 07:14 PM


Two of America's top selling sedans, the 2017 Camry and the 2017 Accord in Cincinnati, usually end up being the cars the future car buyers end up comparing. It's easy to see why – both have a lot going for them! However, as most things are in life, they are not made equal. Honda East has put together this quick comparison to make sure you make the right decision for your next new car.


The engine in the 2017 Honda Accord is significantly more powerful than what the 2017 Camry puts out. This is important for getting you from point A to point B in the most efficient way possible – which is why we would go with the Accord in terms of power. The Accord has two engine options – the 2.4L 4-cylinder, which gets up to 185 horsepower, or you can choose the 3.5L V6 engine and have 278 horsepower. Unfortunately, the Camry hardly stands a chance even with its two engine options. The Camry's 2.5L 4-cylinder gets only 178 horsepower and the 3.5L V6 only puts out a 268 horsepower.


The Accord also shows up the Camry in terms of legroom and headroom which is great for all of you taller folks!

  • Headroom: Up to 39.1 inches in the front of the 2017 Accord vs. just 38.8 in the front of the 2017 Camry.
  • Legroom: Up to a 42.5 inches in the front of the 2017 Accord vs. just 41.6 in the front of the 2017 Camry.


With a few comfort and convenience features that are available on the 2017 Accord but not on the 2017 Camry, you'll be driving much more comfortably. The Accord has 10-way power driver's seat, a multi-angle rear view camera and Apple CarPlay® /Android Auto. These state-of-the-art technologies really make a difference in making the decision between these two sedans, especially because the price points are so similar.


The decision should be simple from here on out – the 2017 Accord in Cincinnati definitely outshines the 2017 Camry in power, performance, passenger space and features. Ready to check out the 2017 Accord for yourself! We invite you to stop in Honda East today!


Exlore the 2017 Accord!

The 2017 HR-V in Cincinnati Will Be Better Than Ever!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Sep 19, 2016 @ 07:52 PM


Honda East knows that 2017 is all about crossovers, and it's easy to see why. Crossovers are the perfect blend of style, functionality and comfort, and with new model years coming out, you can only expect that they'll be even better than the previous model year. This is definitely the case with the 2017 HR-V in Cincinnati (which goes on sale nation-wide on Sept. 20)! Last year, we saw the HR-V get recognized as the 2016 Green SUV of the Year – so let's see how the newest HR-V breaks conventional crossover standards again in 2017!


Straight from, "With bold and sporty coupe-like styling, SUV versatility and a 34-mpg EPA highway fuel economy rating (2WD CVT), by any measure the 2017 Honda HR-V is a standout in the entry crossover market. Delivering outstanding value with a long list of standard features and technologies, including 17-inch alloy wheels, push-button electric parking brake with Automatic Brake Hold, rearview camera with guidelines, Pandora® radio and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, the 2017 HR-V also adds a sophisticated new color – Lunar Silver metallic – to its palette, replacing Alabaster Silver."


New colors, new features and new technologies are what to expect in the 2017 HR-V. You'll also see new safety and driver-assistive technology in this new crossover, like the next-gen Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure to be that extra measure in the event of a front collision. The 2016 HR-V received 5-stars across the board in Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA, and we can expect the same ratings carried over into 2017.


Additional things like the 2nd-Row Magic Seat® allows that 2nd row seat to fold completely into the vehicle's floor creating a more spacious vehicle for those times that you're carrying a little more than you normally do. It's not every day that you find a vehicle that looks like a compact car but acts like an SUV. This is the beauty of being the owner of the versatile HR-V!


We're still patiently waiting for the 2017 HR-V in Cincinnati to arrive at Honda East, but now you have a better idea of what you can look forward to. If you just can't stand waiting any longer, feel free to explore our 2016 HR-V options in stock!

The 411 on the New 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Cincinnati

Posted by Jessica McFall on Tue, Aug 16, 2016 @ 08:11 PM

It's finally here! The 2017 Ridgeline has made its official debut at Honda East and boy, are we impressed. This truck shatters all preconceived notions you may have about trucks and really steps up the game. If you're wondering just how, we're about to tell you! Stay tuned as we overview this game changer of a truck – the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Cincinnati!



A Phenomenal Truck Bed

Honda made a seemingly unchangeable detail of trucks the star feature. Think of it as a "smart bed" – "From off-road toys to 4’ x 8’ sheets of plywood, the bed of the Ridgeline was designed with minimal wheel well housings in order to maximize hauling capabilities." Simple enough, right? The actual tailgate itself if smart too, opening multi-way unlike traditional tailgates. You are able to open the truck bed like a door or like a regular tailgate. Honda has also invented a solution to the low-storage problem with the In-Bed Trunk® that allows you to store items securely in the 7.3 cubic feet space located in the bed, and lock it, too. It even comes equipped with a drain plug so you can use it as an ice chest! We could go on about the truck bed's other cool features like the Truck Bed Audio System, but we need to keep moving so let's talk about the interior.



Innovative Interior

The interior of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has an available 8-inch display, push start button, one-touch power moonroof, Bluetooth connectivity, 4.2'' multi-information display, and a center console that's big enough for a 10-inch tablet, just to name a few. There's seating for up to five adults comfortably, but if you are only seating 2 or 3 people, the seats are 60/40 lift-up rear seats to make room for extra storage. For the couple that is constantly switching who drives, you'll love the memory seat that has driver memory settings for up to two people.



Beauty and Power

Just when you think this truck can't get any better, you find out about the power capabilities. The Ridgeline is available with front or all-wheel drive but is powered by a 3.5L 280 horsepower V6 engine. And for all of you truck lovers that like a good towing capacity, the Ridgeline can tow up to 5,000 hefty pounds backed up by the 262 lb-ft of torque.




Excited yet? We bet you are! This one-of-a-kind Honda truck is available at Honda East and just waiting for you to take it out for a spin. Come on over and test drive the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Cincinnati today!

The Accord Hybrid is available in 8 beautiful color options for you to show your personality whether it’s a chic White Orchid Pearl or a shocking Vortex Blue Pearl.


Unbeatable MPG

A Look at the History of the Best Selling Car in Cincinnati

Posted by Jessica McFall on Wed, Jul 06, 2016 @ 06:26 PM

America's top selling car, the Honda Accord, is a household name. The Accord first made its debut in 1976 and has been America's best selling car for the last 4 decades. It has consistently and fervently keeps up with the ever-changing auto industry with flying colors, and the sales show that it is able to adapt to any auto climate. It's practical, it's fun, it's the Honda Accord! Today as the 2017 model year makes is way to the Honda East lot, we want to celebrate the Honda Accord's accomplishments the prior 40 years.


"Over 40 years and nine generations, Accord has consistently set the benchmark for the U.S. auto industry, earning the trust of more American car buyers than any other car during that period – with sales of more than 12.7 million Accords, the vast majority produced in Honda's U.S. plants. Through continuous improvement and innovation, Accord has earned a reputation as a segment-defining product, delivering class-leading reliability and durability with outstanding fuel efficiency and low emissions – along with refined and responsive driving dynamics and top-class safety performance."


Did you know the Accord started out as a hatchback? Just when you thought the only hatchback around in the 70s was the station wagon, the Accord was trucking along right behind it. The Accord was the first Honda model to be manufactured in America and today Honda has produced more than 10.7 million Accords in North America total.


One of the things that really makes the Accord popular to a wide-range of consumers is the safety measures it implements. The Accord has been named a Car and Driver "10Best" for the incredible record of 30 times. What an honor! It is the only vehicle of its class to have achieved this recognition 30 times, and is virtually unmatched. The Accord was one of the first of the newest Honda lineup to have Honda Sensing, which is a suite of advanced safety and driver-assisted technologies. These extra safety features really go the extra mile to prevent or even lessen collision, if they should occur.


So, happy 40th anniversary, Honda Accord! It has come such a long way and we look forward to years to come. 40 years strong and still impressing us! Honda East invites you to sign up for a test drive of the 2016 and 2017 Honda Accord models –drive the best selling car in Cincinnati, drive the Honda Accord!

Awaiting the 2017 Honda CR-V in Cincinnati!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Thu, Jun 16, 2016 @ 03:02 PM


You may have heard a few rumors about the highly anticipated 2017 Honda CR-V in Cincinnati, and curious about what the new CR-V has in store. Although not everything is unveiled yet, Honda East has some new details about this new crossover SUV and we're happy to fill you in with the latest!


The Honda CR-V has been in production since 1995, gaining popularity from the beginning and constantly receiving upgrades every year. It's the perfect middle ground between the larger Honda Pilot and the smaller HR-V, or as baby bear would say, "Just right!" And you're not alone if you are a current CR-V owner as it boasts the title of best selling SUV in North America for 2015.


This new 2017 CR-V is said to be one of the largest improvements it has ever experienced, largely in part because of the additional 3rd row it will be receiving! That's right, the CR-V is ready to compete with the three row SUVs like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and other 7-seaters. But how will the 3rd row fit in? Honda is going to increase the wheelbase by 80 mm and the overall vehicle length by 50 mm to make this a comfortable change.


There are other things said to be getting a facelift including exterior changes like the headlights, fog lights, grille and front fascia. All of these small changes will contribute to an overall more 'sophisticated' look, allowing the 2017 CR-V to compete with higher end SUVs like the Land Rover Discovery. The interior could look drastically different with a much roomier space, offering more comfort and possible upgraded upholstery.


We found information about power from : "One option should be enhanced version of 2.4 liter naturally aspirated engine which is already exploited in this model and currently delivers 185 horsepower. Also sourced from Civic model a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine could be another solution for new CR-V model. It will potentially improve fuel efficiency ratings and provide better acceleration. It produces 174 HP and 163 pound-feet torque in the Civic and higher ratings are expected for CRV model. Some sources also claim that Honda will offer hybrid powertrain version which will include 2.0 liter for cylinder engine backed up with two or even three electric motors."



The rumors are that the new 2017 Honda CR-V in Cincinnati will debut towards the latter part of 2017, which seems like a long time but it would be worth the wait in our opinion! However, if you just can't wait to get your hands on a new Honda, check out our current 2016 Honda CR-V models, which are flying off of the Honda East lot every day! Hope to see you soon!

2016 Dart vs. 2016 Civic in Cincinnati

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Jun 06, 2016 @ 04:35 PM


You've found yourself on the Honda East blog because you're exploring options for your next new car! The decision to buy a new car is a lot bigger than deciding what you're going to have for lunch today, so it should require a little more consideration and time. Lucky for you, we love educating our customers on new cars, and today is no different! We're looking at the good, bad and ugly of the 2016 Dart and the 2016 Civic in a quest to find out which one comes out on top. Let's go!


Fuel Economy

If fuel economy and efficiency is important to you, it's safer to go with the Honda Civic in Waco. Both the Civic and Dart have 2.0 4. Cylinder/Manual transmissions in the most basic mode, but the Civic gets 27 city/40 hwy MPG while the Dart only gets 25 city/36 hwy MPG*. In addition to better fuel efficiency, the Civic doesn't require premium gas like the Dart, which can save you 20-55 cents/gallon.



The 2016 Civic in San Antonio has a few more safety features than the 2016 Dodge Dart. For example, the Civic has vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors that alert the smart airbags in the Civic to deploy with different levels of force to protect passengers of different sizes. The Dart's airbags deploy at full force every time. The Civic also has optional Collision Mitigation Braking System and a lane departure warning system. The Dart doesn't have either of these as an option. Both vehicles have standard driver, passenger, side-impact, and side-impact head airbags.


Passenger and Cargo Space

Worried about space in a "compact car"? The Civic doesn't feel so compact with 39.3 inches of headroom in the front, and 37.1 in the rear seating area! Holding 5 passengers, the Civic has 97.8 cubic feet of cargo room and 15.1 cubic feet of cargo room. The Dart only has 13.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity, and its passenger volume is unlisted (which we can only assume means that it doesn't compare).


Misc. Features

We've said it before and we'll say it again – not all cars are created equal even if they are the same model year! In this case, the Civic is way ahead of the game in terms of technology and features. The Civic has front power windows, standards power locks (which the Dart has, but costs extra), standard power remote mirrors, standard Bluetooth wireless, standard HondaLink, available front heated seats, and so much more.



With better space, safety features, fuel efficiency and features, you can't beat the 2016 Civic in Cincinnati. The Jetta has some great offerings, but it just can't stand a chance next to the new Civic! Receive top customer service and test drive this new and improved Civic at Honda East today!
