Honda Cars – Dominating Canadian RoadsBlog Feb 14th, 2019
Canadian driving isn’t for the faint of heart. With sudden weather changes during any season, you and your vehicle need to be prepared for whatever may come. You could be on a summer road trip when a torrential down pour decides to test your traction. Or on your way to hockey practice when a winter storm limits your visibility while making the roads look like a skating rink. Your vehicle needs to have your back and Honda will always have you covered.
Not only do you want a car that gets you and your family to wherever you need to go safely but you want it to be fun to drive! The perfect combination of sporty and reliable is something Honda has come to produce rather well.
It may surprise you that Honda cars are at the top of the list, but most Canadians have found out about the not-so-little secret that Hondas can handle winter driving. We keep choosing them over and over again because they perform! So here’s a quick breakdown of what the two most popular Honda cars have to offer.
The Civic, ranked as the top-selling car for 20 years, is made by Canadians for Canadians. And it shows. One of the key features that helps the Honda Civic stick to the road is the Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control. It will sense and correct it from oversteering or understeering to improve the handling and stability. The traction control gives you better grip on loose or slippery surfaces.
As a big brother to the Civic, the Accord is equipped with similar safety features to ensure the safest ride possible. It was ranked as the 2018 Canadian Car of the Year, which means it passed rigorous testing under all weather conditions without a problem. Along with it’s impressive performance and handling, the Accord provides you with more leg room and luxury features than the Civic.
Safety is Top of Mind
Unfortunately, car accidents happen all the time and poor road conditions is one of the leading causes. You want the peace of mind knowing your car will stand up to most impacts in order to keep you and your family safe. Honda has received quite a few 2019 Top Safety Pick+ ratings from IIHS, including one for the 2019 Accord.
Honda Sensing Technologies also play a big part in why a Honda is a safe choice. Many features work together simultaneously to keep you on the road and in total control. If a vehicle is in front of you and slows down abruptly the Forward Collision Warning System will come into play; moreover, if you don’t react in time the Collision Mitigation Braking System will. This reduces the severity of impact by braking firmly.
All in All
A lot of factors come into play when you’re looking for a vehicle to rely on all year long. You want to enjoy the ride while knowing that it’s doing everything it can to give you the best performance, safety and control. Any one of the Honda cars is able to perform under all weather conditions. Book a test drive today to find the one for you.
