The new school year is upon us, and your teen is about to be very busy. Going to school, band practice, study groups, football games, soccer tryouts–there’s no end to the places they’ll go! If you are considering buying your teen his or her own vehicle (so you don’t have to play Chauffeur all year) look no further than the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V. The 2016 HR-V from Brannon Honda is just right for the young Birmingham driver.
Experts recommend that teens drive mid-size vehicles, and for good reason. Tiny subcompacts are no match for the trucks and SUVs barreling down I-65. By the same token, heavy SUVs and trucks are not agile and take a long time to stop, so inexperienced drivers are not as able to avoid accidents in them.
The 2016 HR-V is the perfect balance of size and agility. With Electric Power-Assisted Rack and Pinion Steering, MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, and Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control on a roughly 3,000 lbs frame, the 2016 HR-V is a lean and mean maneuvering machine. Plus, the 2016 HR-V sits up high so drivers have great visibility.
The key to responsible driving is staying focused, and the 2016 HR-V is simple enough to limit distractions. The 4-cylinder engine has a modest–but perky–141-horsepower. That means your teen will make it anywhere, but won’t be tempted to break any land speed records. Also, the 2016 HR-V LX does not have a touchscreen console, giving a young driver less to look at.
Safety and Efficiency
This little crossover embodies the efficiency and safety you expect from every Honda. Your teen’s after-school job will more than cover fuel costs, since the 2016 HR-V gets up to 28/35 mpg*. Standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, Anti-Lock Braking System, front and side curtain airbags, and Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure work together to provide the safest vehicle possible.
The most important piece of school supplies you may buy this year is a new 2016 HR-V from Brannon Honda in Birmingham, Alabama.
