2014 Honda CR-Z

Honda CRZ

Sports and economy rarely go together. After all, how can you go from 0-60 in 6 seconds without draining a 10th of your fuel tank? The Honda CRZ intends to be the missing link between a sports car and a hybrid, which means that it has a lot of weight on its shoulders. Only time will tell whether Honda's experiment goes successful or not, as the CRZ is still in its initial stages.

Engine

The sports hybrid houses a 1.5 liter 4 cylinder petrol engine that is combined with a nickel metal battery pack and electric motor to generate a total of 130horses along with 140 pounds of torque per feet. Transmission choices are either a six speed manual transmission or a rather unique CVT with shift paddles, the latter of which are usually not that common in this price tag. It is worth noting that the torque is reduced to 123 pounds in the CVT option which may not appeal to some Washington, Pittsburgh residents. For EPA ratings, the CVT beats the automatic by a huge margin.

Exterior

The exterior design clearly shows that Honda is going in the right direction with this one; the CRZ is definitely one of the sportiest looking cars in all of Washington, Pittsburgh. With its sleek styling, sharp corners and aerodynamic hood, it surely looks the part of a sporty vehicle. Besides that, it's also quite compact, especially the hatchback version which rivals the Fit in terms of dimensions. However, we did feel that the design might not appeal to a few people who may consider it a bit too Japanese.

Features

The CRZ has just two trim levels; the base and the upgraded EX. However, even the base model comes fully loaded with alloys, climate control, power windows, power accessories, automated cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and a fully fledged sound system. Upgrading to the EX gets you other features such as xenon lamps, anti-fog side mirrors and a better sound system with upgraded speakers. You may also opt for a GPS navigation system along with larger wheels and upgraded tires.

The Honda CRZ is definitely one of the most unique cars in Washington, Pittsburgh today. Have a look for yourself at Washington Honda, the best choice for Honda dealers in Washington.

Honda Fit

There was a time when hatchbacks were considered as a supplement to sedans, used by those that needed cheap and reliable transportation from point A to point B. The Honda Fit changed that perception, offering Washington, Pittsburgh residents features that were usually limited to high end sedans. With the variety of conveniences and practicality that the Fit offers such as huge interior space, it comes as a recommended choice for an entry level hatchback.

Engine

The Compact Honda produces 117hp with 106 pounds of torque with its standard 1.5 liter 4 cylinder engine. Though the power output is nominal, the fuel economy that this engine provides definitely isn't. The Fit is one of the most economical hatchbacks in Washington, PA. A five speed manual and automatic transmission are offered for both trims, the latter featuring paddle shifters which are usually reserved for high end performance models.

Exterior

The Honda Fit definitely fits its name, being one of the most compact cars on the market in Washington, Pittsburgh. In fact, it is the smallest production car on Honda's assembly lines. You can easily park the Fit through the tightest parking spots and sift through rush hour traffic with relative ease. Looks can be deceiving however as the Fit also sports one of the largest interior spaces of any hatchback, even beating the Honda Civic in terms of legroom. We would go as far as to say that the Fit could make a comfortable mode of transportation for 7 footers, which is something unheard of in hatchback models.

Features

There are two trim levels available for the Fit; a base and a sports trim. Even the basic trim is loaded with a variety of features such as air conditioning, adjustable steering wheel, cruise control, CD deck with iPod connectivity, remote entry and a 4 speaker sound system. The Sports trim aims at driving enthusiasts with a longer wheelbase, sportier design elements, six speaker audio system and firmer suspension. Upgrade options include a GPS navigation system, center console touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity and voice controls.

The Fit is definitely one of the best choices for an entry level hatchback in Washington, Pittsburgh. If you are interested in purchasing one yourself, visit Washington Honda, where we offer regular discounts and promotions on various Honda models, including the Fit.

2013 Honda Ridgeline

Honda Ridgeline

The pickup truck segment has generally been an American dominated market, with a few Japanese offerings here and there. The Honda Ridgeline isn't your usual forgettable Japanese truck, however, as it sports the brawn to not only compete with but also beat local pickups at their own game.

Engine

The Japanese pickup is powered by a single V6 that's capable of producing just up to 250hp, which isn't all that impressive. But when you consider the extra traction that the All Wheel Drive system provides, you'll realize that the power and grip combination is perfect for hauling or towing huge loads across Washington, Pittsburgh. And let's not forget the five speed automatic transmission, which provides one of the smoothest gear shifts among all pickup trucks.

Exterior

The Ridgeline truly is the Godzilla vehicle, giving the Nissan Armada direct competition in terms of size. Most Honda dealers in Washington have the Ridgeline available in a sole black color which makes it even more menacing. However, you can choose from a variety of colors at Washington Honda Pittsburgh.

Another distinguishing feature of the Ridgeline is the unique combination of a unibody as well as truck frame structure. While the underlying mechanical blueprints of the Ridgeline are similar to traditional trucks, the bed is latched onto the cabin in a uni-body frame that provides the vehicle with unprecedented handling ability while retaining the off road capability that's only possible with a truck based frame.

Unlike most pickup trucks that are featured in various body styles aimed at different consumers, the sole body style available for the Honda Ridgeline is a four door standard bed length. However, we found that the Ridgeline provides ample loading space as well as interior room which will suffice for most of the consumers in Washington, Pittsburgh.

Features

There are about five trim levels available for the Ridgeline at Washington Honda; the base RT, sport, RTS, RTL and luxury oriented SE. However, even the base version doesn't fail to impress with its list of features such as air conditioning, adjustable rear seats, parking camera, power windows and accessories along with a six speaker audio system with CD deck. Going up the trims gets you niceties such as climate control, better sound systems, alloys, temperature controlled leather seats and even GPS and DVD entertainment systems.

The Honda Ridgeline could be yours at Washington Honda Pittsburgh, the most reputed of all Honda Dealers in Washington, Pittsburgh.

Honda Civic

The Civic has been America's favorite compact sedan for over 30 years, thanks to a combination of high build quality, excellent handling and the reliability that comes with a Honda nameplate.

Engine

The compact sedan is powered by a standard 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine that produces an ample 140hp with a choice of a five speed automatic or manual transmission. Though this amount of power may seem nominal, keep in mind that the Civic is a compact sedan where the usual horsepower doesn't rise above 120hp.

The Civic also sports a hybrid version with an electric motor. This version is able to produce a total output of 110hp and is mated with a CVT. EPA is quite impressive for a hybrid.
