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!
