New Chevy Colorado vs. 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Jul 25, 2016 @ 15:07 PM

Everyone is talking about trucks in Waco, and for great reasons! Trucks today aren't what they used to be; they're so much more than extra cargo room. They're still functional, but trucks today are luxurious enough to pull up to the valet without a second glance. Upgrade your ride by choosing a brand new truck. First, let's go over your options. Today at Greg May Honda, we're looking at the new Chevy Colorado and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco!

 

To start with the fun stuff, the Ridgeline has way more technology and comfort offerings. The Ridgeling RTL-E Black Edition has memory seats that activate different, customized positions for the driver. But memory seats aren't the only feature that the Colorado doesn't offer, it's the one-touch power windows, the push-start button, dual-zone AC, standard adaptive cruise control, standard Bluetooth wireless (Bluetooth costs extra on the Colorado), an in-bed trunk, a 115-volt electrical outlet, and rear AC vents (a must in Texas). With all of these features combined, you'll be significantly more comfortable in the Ridgeline.

 

You wouldn't want to choose a truck without maximum performance capabilities, so the Ridgeline is the way to go. The Honda truck's 280 horsepower V6 engine is refreshing as it's quite a bit faster than it's predecessor. The Chevy truck on the other hand touts only 200 horsepower and has the acceleration more of a mid-size care than SUV. Speaking of SUVs, the Ridgeline has the cabin-feel of the SUV being wider and favoring its cousin, the Honda Pilot. This is great news for those of you who plan to cart the family around in the new truck! The new Colorado is slightly larger than previous generations, but still feels narrow and cramped.

 

On top of all of this, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco is takes more safety measures than does the Colorado. The Ridgeline (RTL-E/Black Edition) has standard Collision Mitigation Braking System, which warns the driver of a potential collision and will automatically brake if the driver doesn't react to alert. The Colorado offers a warning system, but not the automated braking feature that could potentially reduce the collision. The Ridgeline also offers a cross-path warning system and a 3D high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment that provides extra impact protection.

 

Stronger, safer and more comfortable, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Waco is hard to beat! Greg May Honda is proud to offer such an incredible truck to our customers, so we invite you to take a test drive today! We promise you won't leave disappointed. See you soon!

2016 Accord vs. 2016 Sonata in Waco

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Jun 13, 2016 @ 16:06 PM

 

You must be looking for a new car to drive around town, and you've landed on the right page! Greg May Honda prides ourselves in knowing everything about the new car market, and we want to give you the 411 on popular cars in Waco. Particularly, there are two cars that we have had our eye this season, the 2016 Accord and the 2016 Sonata in Waco. Which one is the best car choice for you? Let's find out!

 

Both the Accord and the Sonata can tout acceptable safety ratings, but the Accord has Active Head Restraints that protect the front driver and passenger from whiplash, something that the Sonata doesn't offer at all, which sets it apart. In addition to the whiplash protection, the Accord has available parking sensors and was given the top rating of "Good" in the overall evaluation for the IIHS frontal offset crash test. The Sonata does not have parking sensors, and was rated only "Acceptable" in the IIHS crash test.

 

Did you know that there are 73% more Honda dealers than there are Hyundai dealers? Getting your car serviced in your Accord is significantly more convenient than getting your Sonata would be. The J.D. Power and Associate's survey of owners of 3-year-old cars conclude that Honda cars were ranked 5th in reliability, while the Hyundai vehicles were ranted way low on the list, at 24th.

 

With the most basic 2016 Accord engine, you'll get 185 horsepower, which is great in the sedan market. With the Accord EX-L V6/Touring engine, you'll be riding with 278 horsepower! On the other hand, the 2016 Sonata's base engine gets only 178 horsepower, and it's top-of-the-line 2.0 turbo engine gets just 245.

 

The 2016 Accord, still in the sedan category, has a towing capacity of 1000 pounds! No need to borrow your brother's friend's truck the next time you need to pull something <1000 pounds. This is a perk that the Sonata unfortunately does not have!

 

It's not a secret anymore that Honda just has overall better technology options and features than Hyundai. With this being the case and to save time, we're listing technology features that the 2016 Accord offers as standard that the 2016 Sonata does not come standard with:

  • Standard remote vehicle starting system
  • Windows can be controlled from the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote
  • Standard speed-sensitive windshield wipers
  • Dual-zone air conditioning
  • Automatic air conditioning
  • Rear heating and cooling vents for backseat passengers

 

It's obvious that the top sedan here is the 2016 Accord! The 2016 Sonata in Waco just doesn't hold a candle to the incredible things that the Accord is capable of. Experience the power of the Accord by stopping in Greg May Honda for a test drive today!

5 Ways the 2016 Civic Outperforms the 2016 Jetta in Waco

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Jun 6, 2016 @ 12:06 PM

 

It's not every day that you have the decision to buy a new car, so make the decision count! With countless options of new cars out there, make sure you go with the car that is right for you. At Greg May Honda, we have a specific car on the lot that we believe would meet and exceed your expectations, and that would be the 2016 Civic. The Civic outperforms the 2016 Jetta in Waco in many different ways, which we are highlighting today!

 

The Civic has top-of-the-line technology.

The Civic, unlike the Jetta, offers a remote starting system, which allows you to start the vehicle from inside of the driver's house so your car is nice and toasty by the time you enter. And speaking of toasty, the Civic and Jetta both offer front heated seats, but the Civic Touring makes heated seats available to those passengers in the rear seats! Heated rear seats are not even an option in the Jetta.

 

The Civic has better safety features than the 2016 Jetta.

With the 2016 Civic, you can drive knowing that you're keeping yourself and your loved ones safe. The 2016 Civic has speed sensors AND seat sensors that will deploy the smart airbags with different levels of force depending on how fast you are going, and what size the person in the front seat is. Not to mention the optional lane departure warning system that alerts an inattentive driver that they are cruising into the wrong late.

 

Honda is made to be higher quality.

Honda has a name for quality, and it doesn't stop with the 2016 Civic. Honda was named 14th in initial quality by J.D. Power while Volkswagen was way down the list at number 23. On a similar note, the 2015 survey of 3-year-old car owners, Honda was ranked 5thin reliability, and Volkswagen, again down the list, as 21st.

 

There's room for everyone in the Civic.

Did you know the Civic is rated as a mid-size car by the EPA? The Jetta is only considered a Compact car because it is much smaller. In fact, you'll notice that the Civic has 3.7 cubic feet more passenger room than the Jetta does. In addition to that, the Civic's trunk lift-over height is 26.8 inches and the Jetta's is 28.2. This makes loading items in the Civic much more accessible.

 

It's unbeatable fuel economy.

Volkswagen may have been called out recently about cheating on the American air pollution tests, but Honda is doing quite the opposite. The 2016 Civic gets 31 city/42 hwy MPG* on average. The Jetta? 28 city/39 hwy MPG* and on top of that requires premium fuel.

 

Better fuel economy, more cargo space and better safety features, the 2016 Civic easily outperforms the 2016 Jetta in Waco! We know you probably can't wait to get your hands on the new Civic, and you don't have to! Stop by Greg May Honda today for a test drive!

New Cars in Waco: 2016 Accord vs. 2016 Mazda6

Posted by Jessica McFall on Fri, Jun 3, 2016 @ 15:06 PM

 

With the incredible number of options for new cars in Waco, its time you find the one that will best suit your needs! Greg May Honda wants to help you out during the car buying process, and we'll first start by doing some research. There are two vehicles that continually top the chart in new car sales, and those are namely the 2016 Accord and the 2016 Mazda6. Whether you're wondering which one has more power, better safety or even more cargo space, we've got you covered. Follow along as we compare the Accord and Mazda6!

 

Let's talk safety first. There have been several tests that have proved time and time again that the Accord is safer than the Mazda6. One of these tests is on the more difficult side, a test that the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety performs called the 40 MH small overlap frontal offset crash test. The conclusion of this test was that the Accord received an overall evaluation of "Good" while the Mazda6 received only an "Acceptable" evaluation. When you have precious cargo on board, would you rather be driving the "good" option or the "acceptable" one? That's what we thought – the 2016 Accord tops the competition in safety!

 

Speaking of cargo, let's talk about cargo and passenger space. Even though both are sedans and not expected to carry a large load, the Accord goes beyond conventional sedan standards. With 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space, traveling with several suitcases will never be an issue. Not to mention that if you aren't carrying the 4 additional passengers that the Accord can hold, you can utilize the 103.2 cubic feet of passenger room through out the cabin. On the other end of the spectrum, the Mazda6 only has 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space and 99.7 cubic feet of passenger volume.

 

Lastly, onto the fun stuff: features and new technology. It gets hot in Texas, and sometimes you forget to roll the windows down, which can make getting back in the car even more miserable. With the Accord, you can roll the windows up and down from the outside of the vehicle using the lock cylinder on the keyless remote. The Mazda6 doesn't offer this feature. And it's not only the remote windows that the Mazda6 doesn't offer that the Accord has. The 2016 Accord has several more features like standard auto headlights, standard dual zone air conditioning and optional rear heated seats.

 

In conclusion, out of these two new cars in Waco, we'd have to say that we recommend the 2016 Honda Accord over the 2016 Mazda6. Luxury meets affordability with this new Accord and Greg May Honda invites you to experience it firsthand by doing a test drive in the new Accord. Stop by today and we'll be happy to help you out!
