Top 3 Honda’s to consider from Daniel Hester

Top 3 Honda cars to consider in 2014

Looking to buy a new car this year? Consider these 3 Honda cars.

3. Honda Jazz 1.3 IMA Hybrid HE-T

If you are in the market for a hybrid car you should definitely consider the Honda Jazz 1.3 IMA Hybrid, a city car that’s ideal for all types of driving. It costs £18,145 on-the-road, which is a lot of money for a little Jazz, but this car is in high demand and commands solid residuals.

The car is powered by a 1.3-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. The result of this is a Jazz that’ll return 62.8 miles per gallon on a combined cycle with a CO2 rating of 104 g/km. This is also one of the most practical cars in its class, with tens of cubby holes and cup holders, and a 300-litre boot that can be extended to 883-litres by folding the rear seats.

HE-T trim gets you lots of standard equipment including climate control, cruise control, satellite navigation, Bluetooth, and lots of media and entertainment equipment.  You can get a Vertu Honda Jazz (click here) for a great price used.

2. Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC Black Edition

Honda might not be the first car manufacturer that springs to mind when you think of a 4×4, and at £30,505, the Honda CR-V Black Edition 4×4 isn’t exactly cheap. But, there is no other 4×4 on the market that can match the CR-V’s equipment levels for the price nor its reliability.

Black Edition is the second to top trim level. Standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, cruise control, heated electric mirrors, automatic headlights and wipers, heated front seats, power folding mirrors, CD player, Bluetooth, MP3 / iPod connectivity, AUX-in, alloy wheels, fog lights, rear and front parking sensors, a reversing camera, plus much more.

The 2.2-litre diesel engine in the CR-V is much better suited to the character of the car than the 2.0-litre i-VTEC. This engine will return 48.7 miles per gallon on a combined cycle with a CO2 rating of 154 g /km.

1. Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC SE Plus

First place on our list is the refined, well equipped and economical Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC SE Plus. This car has an on-the-road price of £21,960 but used versions are available for less from Vertu Honda. The Civic in all trim levels and specifications offers a comfortable and refined driving experience. In SE Plus trim, standard equipment includes climate control, cruise control, heated electric mirrors, MP3 / iPod connectivity, AUX-in, alloy wheels, LED running lights, and split/fold seats.

The 1.6-litre diesel engine will return 78.5 miles per gallon on a combined cycle with a CO2 rating of 94 g /km, which means free annual road tax. The engine is quiet and surprisingly powerful, with 221 lb /ft of torque available from 1,500 rpm. This gifts the Civic with excellent in-gear response and considerable urge on the motorway.

In terms of practicality, the Civic has an excellent boot. The standard capacity is 467-litres but this can be extended to a whopping 1,210-litre by folding the rear seats flat.
