The popular compact commuter vehicle now offers two new dynamic color choices, Helios Yellow and Orange Fury. With four different trim packages available starting at $16,190, the Honda Fit is a budget-conscious choice that still delivers a fun driving experience.

Sport Adds Extra Dose of Styling

If you’re looking for a car that gets great gas mileage and doesn’t skimp on the eye candy, the 2018 Honda Fit Sport trim package is an excellent choice. With an aggressive front spoiler and rear diffuser supplying the book ends to this new addition to the Fit lineup, Honda has delivered a vehicle that puts the “fun” back into fundamental transportation. Orange pinstriping, aluminum alloy wheels and a chrome exhaust tip all add to the sporty styling of this model. Check inside and you’ll find an all-black interior highlighted by orange contrast stitching.

Standard Honda Sensing on EX and Above

Choose the EX or EX-L trim levels and you’ll get the Honda Sensing Suite of driver assistance features as standard equipment. This suite of technology, available as an option on lower priced trim packages, includes adaptive cruise control, collision mitigating braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist and lane departure warning. Although you can get a detailed explanation of how this all works when you visit Chapman Honda, suffice it to say that a combination of radar sensors and cameras alert you to an impending collision and is some cases take control of your vehicle to avoid that collision.

Driving Dynamics Retuned for 2018

Even though the Honda Fit doesn’t come with a superpowered V8, the 130 horsepower 4-cylinder VTEC engine has more than enough pop to deliver some driving thrills. The 2018 Honda Fit suspension has been retuned with new suspension dampers, more rigid steering and a body that’s been reinforced to reduce body roll when you take a corner a little too aggressively. Honda has also paid particular attention to solving the problem of road noise in the 2018 Fit, with more insulation and acoustic-laminated glass.

Get Hybrid Numbers Without the Cost

If you’ve been pondering buying an electrified vehicle but are turned off by the high initial price tag, the Honda Fit has come to the rescue. The Fit LX with the CVT transmission is rate at 40 mpg on the highway and has a combined rating of 36 mpg. That may not be quite as high as some hybrids, but it certainly gives you something to think about when it’s time to buy your next new car.

Among the many innovations coming with the 2018 Honda Odyssey is the ability to stream unlimited data with an AT&T 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi plan. Now you can keep your kids and rear seat passengers happy with unlimited movies and TV shows while you listen to podcasts, audio books and your favorite music channels without fearing you’re spending too much for entertainment. Available in the Odyssey Touring and Elite trim packages, the data plans go for as little as $20 a month. The totally redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey is available for a test drive now at Chapman Honda.

Data Plan Just Part of New Technology

“As any parent can tell you, keeping everyone connected is a big part of modern family happiness,” said Honda Senior VP Jeff Conrad. “With our new CabinWatch and CabinTalk technologies, reconfigurable Magic Slide seats and 4G LTE Wi-Fi, the new Odyssey is all about keeping everyone connected and comfortable.” CabinWatch gives the ability for the driver and front passenger to keep an eye on all the other passengers through the infotainment screen. The driver can communicate with people in the back through the Odyssey’s speaker system utilizing the CabinTalk feature. The Magic Slide seats make it easy for third row access or to configure the minivan for cargo storage.

Rear Entertainment System Keeps Passengers Occupied

When you get on that long stretch of highway between Phoenix and Los Angeles or San Diego, the last thing you want to do is quell a disturbance or answer the dreaded “are we there yet?” question. The Rear Entertainment System of the new Honda Odyssey provides a large 10.2-inch rear monitor that will work with DVD, CD or Blu-ray discs. If everyone has their own phone or tablet, the Wi-Fi system allows for up to seven different connections at the same time.

Five Different Trim Packages Available

The new Honda Odyssey comes in five different trim packages that offer something different for people with varying tastes and budgets. The LX is the most inexpensive model, starting at just a hair under $30,000. It comes with a long list of standard features, including a power driver’s seat, 18-inch alloy wheels and a rearview camera. The EX offers all that and the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance safety features. The EX-L adds leather to the equation along with a power tailgate. The Touring model ups the ante a bit with the CabinWatch technology, Rear Entertainment System and parking sensors. The Elite trim is the top of the line and features heated and ventilated front seats, a premium audio system and wireless phone charger.

Styling Change Begins at the Front

As with all things, it’s best to begin at the beginning. The beginning of the new Honda Fit is a layered two-piece grille in chrome and black that displays a more prominent Honda logo. The grille expands out into attractive teardrop headlamps that are smoothly integrated into the front fascia. Follow the lines along the sculpted sides to the rear, where the low and wide stance is reminiscent of much more expensive sports cars. Sharp new taillights complete the package.

New Sport Trim Turns Heads

Just above the EX and below the LX trim packages, the Honda Fit Sport delivers an even more aggressive look, with a bold orange splitter on the front and a three-strake diffuser with an orange trim on the back. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels and chrome exhaust add to the modern look. Honda has added a couple of colors to the already dynamic package. Helios Yellow Pearl replaces Mystic Yellow in the lineup, while Orange Fury delivers another choice to help your Fit match your personality.

Honda Sensing Adds Safety

The addition of the availability of the Honda Sensing Suite to the Fit lineup adds new technology designed to help you get from point A to point B safely. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Road Departure Warning are just a few of the sensor and camera-driven features that help avoid collisions. The Fit is now the most affordable car in America with these types of safety features, which offer warnings of impending collisions and then take action if you fail to respond. Check in often with Chapman Honda to see when the new Fit will be available for inspection and a test drive.

With a more powerful engine, advanced cabin communication features and a quiet ride not experienced in other minivans, the new Honda Odyssey is now ready for a test drive at Chapman Honda. The 2018 Odyssey has been redesigned from the ground up, offering the ultimate in family flexibility just in time for summer vacation.

New Engine Provides More Power, Efficiency

The new 3.5L 24-valve direct fuel injection V6 engine comes with Variable Cylinder Management, a system that shuts down some of the cylinders once you reach cruising speed. The cylinders leap into action again when called upon, delivering both power and fuel efficiency. The new Honda Odyssey has earned an outstanding rating of 28 mpg on the highway from the EPA, and 22 mpg in combined highway and city driving. Depending on the trim level you select, you’ll receive either a 9-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission, making the most out of each gear range as you accelerate for quick passing or cruise effortlessly down the highway.

Magic Slide Seats Enable Flexibility

The ability to remove and slide the second row seats into multiple positions makes configuring your new Honda Odyssey for the day’s travels a snap. You can slide the outboard seats into five different positions, making easy access to the third row or more room for hauling groceries or the day’s yard sale finds. Utilize the Buddy Mode to move the two seats close to each other in the center of the van. It’s perfect for double-dating or keeping your eyes on little children.

Talk With, and Watch, the Kids

Utilizing two all new features, drivers and front passengers can keep an eye on what’s going on in the rear of the van, as well as communicate with those in both the second and third rows. CabinWatch puts “eyes” on the people in back with a display on the 8-inch infotainment center. CabinTalk utilizes the Odyssey’s speaker system to let the driver and passengers talk to each other.

Quiet Ride is Less Exhausting

The new Honda Odyssey is the perfect minivan for summer road trips for many reasons, not the least of which is its extreme quietness. Honda engineers made providing a quiet ride one of their top priorities, so the Odyssey is outfitted with a tightly-sealed body that utilizes triple seals on the doors and acoustic laminated glass in the windshield and front side windows. Acoustic spray foam throughout the body helps eliminate road noise and reduce the stress on the driver and passengers during those long road trips. See the new Honda Odyssey today and take a test drive when you visit Chapman Honda.

All-new Turbo Civic Ready for Test Drive

With a new turbocharged high-performance engine that pumps out 205 horsepower, the Honda Civic Si is putting a fresh face on an old standard. Long considered one of the most dependable forms of transportation on the planet, the Civic has a fresh face with the introduction of the 2017 Honda Civic Si. Put a smile on your face by taking a test drive today at Chapman Honda.

Ambitious Remake of Civic Lineup

With both a coupe and sedan from which to choose, the new Honda Civic Si is part of the most ambitious remake of the Civic lineup in the model’s 44-year history. You’ve heard the phrase “those Hondas will run forever”? Well now Honda has added a whole new level of fun to go along with their legendary dependability. Along with more power, both the sedan and coupe are much lighter than previous models, 96 pounds in the case of the sedan and 113 for the coupe. With a rigid body, upgraded chassis and adaptive power steering with variable ratios, the handling of these two beauties is off the hook.

Stylish Design Pleasing and Aggressive

The happy little Civic hatchback of days gone by would shiver in fear at the sight of its latest siblings. The new Civic Si greets you with an aggressive looking fascia punctuated by the iconic Honda wing logo. Eighteen-inch wheels and low-profile tires created a muscular stance, while a full-length light bar and spoiler put an exclamation point on the end of the package. Bolstered front seats keep you firmly in place as you power around corners. They’re accented by bright red stitching, including embroidered Si logos for a touch of class. A leather shift boot, leather wrapped steering wheel and aluminum pedals deliver the look of a real race car.

Plenty of Standard Features

Aside from the sporty performance and aggressive look, one nice thing about the new turbocharged Honda Civic Si is the long list of standard features in both the sedan and coupe. Along with dual climate control, you get heated front seats, push button start, hill start assist and an electric parking brake. Power windows and locks are a given, but perhaps you wouldn’t expect standard cruise control, a capless fuel filler and white ambient lighting. The new Civic Si also includes a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that controls your communications, audio and air conditioning. The Si also has a powerful 450 watt sound system so you can crank up the tunes while you’re putting the car through its paces. Get ready to see the new face of the Honda Civic when you take a test drive at Chapman Honda.

With new features like a Magic Slide second-row seat, sophisticated cabin communication and rear entertainment system that utilizes streaming video, the 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan will be the talk of the town when it arrives soon at Chapman Honda. “This new Odyssey raises the stakes for family-friendly packaging, performance and technology in the minivan segment,” according to Honda VP John Mendel. “In all aspects of its design, the new Odyssey is made to keep every member of the family happy, no matter the seating position, no matter the destination.”

Now the Front Row Can Talk to the Back

With the new CabinTalk communication system, the driver can easily communicate with the second and third rows through the Odyssey’s speakers and entertainment headphones. CabinWatch also lets the driver and front passenger keep their eyes on the kids during day and night travels using the large 8-inch audio screen. When they’re not listening to their parents, the rear passengers can enjoy watching their favorite videos on the 10.2-inch ceiling-mounted displays. The available 4G LTE Wi-Fi lets the passengers stream their favorite video, surf the Internet, listen to podcasts and audio books while communicating with the outside world. Honda’s “How Much Farther?” app lets the kids figure out how long it is until you get there on their own.

Magic Slide Seat Provides Flexibility

Sometimes you need to take the whole softball team for ice cream, while other times you need space to haul that new big screen TV home. With the Honday Odyssey, you get the best of people and cargo hauling. The innovative Magic Slide seat has four different modes for easy configuration. Easy Access mode allows you to remove the center second row seat and slide the outboard seats into five different positions. Super Mode allows maximum access to the third row, while Wide Mode provides a wide center walkway through the second row. Buddy Mode moves the two second seats together with more room on the outside.

Safety Comes First With Odyssey

When the new Honda Odyssey comes to Chapman Honda, make sure and ask about the available suite of safety features. The EX trim level and above will include the Honda Sensing Suite, which includes a collision mitigation braking system, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control and much more. Additional features include heated and ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors and three-zone automatic climate control. If you like to keep a neat vehicle, you’ll love the onboard HondaVac vacuum system.

It’s big enough to haul the kids and all their sports equipment, some furniture and maybe that new big-screen TV, but the best thing about the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck is its ability to adapt to a commuter lifestyle. The new Honda Ridgeline can zip through traffic and grab that last parking space by the deli during the week, then haul the whole family up to the mountains for a campout on the weekend. With seven different trim packages, there are enough options and price points for just about everyone to enjoy the latest thing on the truck market. Examine and enjoy the Ridgeline by taking a test drive today at Chapman Honda.

Tough Ridgeline Built to Last

With a unit-body construction that molds the body panels and chassis into a single entity, the new Honda Ridgeline enjoys a strong but light structure. This allows the two-wheel drive version to earn a 26 mpg rating on the highway. A 3.5L V6 engine produces a stout 280 horsepower, enough to tow 5,000 pounds and get you up the mountains in a hurry. Choose front wheel or all-wheel drive if you want more control in inclement weather.

Different Trim Levels Packed With Features

The base RT Honda Ridgeline still comes loaded with standard features, including the unique dual-action tailgate and in-bed locking truck. For a few more dollars you can move up to the RTS, which adds fog lights, remote engine start, smart entry and triple zone climate control. The Sport model has some cooler wheels and an awesome Crystal Black Pearl paint job. If you want a leather interior and heated front seats, check out the RTL trim package when you get to Chapman Honda. This model also has a 10-way power driver seat and an acoustic windshield to cut down on road noise. The RTL-T adds navigation, while the RTL-E has all the previous features and includes a blind spot warning system, the Honda sensing suite of driver assistance features and a premium audio system.

Black is Where its At

The Black Edition also has black chrome accents along the grille, rear bumper and window surrounds. Check it out today at Chapman Honda.

Clarity Joins Accord and CR-Z Hybrid

The new Clarity models join the trusty Honda Accord and sporty CR-Z hybrids in the company’s electrified lineup. The Accord is one of America’s most popular cars, uniquely stylish and loaded with technology. Features such as LED daytime running lights make the Accord stand out when going down the road, while sophisticated body lines, a striking front end and bold lines create a memorable style. The interior of the Accord Hybrid delivers a futuristic look with easy-to-read gauges and a smart ergonomic layout. The interior is loaded with premium materials including an option for wood grain and leather. Of course, if you’re buying a hybrid, it’s important to get the latest technology. Honda’s unique two-motor system uses one motor to accelerate and a second to start the gas engine and also charge the first motor. The Accord Hybrid delivers 49 mpg in the city and comes in three different trim levels.

CR-Z Sport Hybrid a Pocket Rocket

The stylish CR-Z Sport Hybrid is not only fuel-efficient, but is dripping with style and charisma from its aerodynamic profile to the brightly lit gauges in the cockpit. The coolest thing about the CR-Z may be the “Plus Sport System” button on the steering wheel. Just push the button for an adrenaline rush of speed, handy for getting on the freeway or when you’re putting the car through its paces on a deserted road. Paddle shifters and a 3-mode drive system pair with the 1.5L i-VTEC engine to deliver phenomenal performance. The CR-Z comes loaded with technology that makes driving both safer and more enjoyable. Test drive the Accord and CR-Z hybrids today at Chapman Honda and make sure and ask when the new Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and EV will be making their first appearance.

Civic Type R Coming Soon

Stay in touch with Chapman Honda to get dibs on the first test drive of the all-new Honda Civic Type R, coming to the showroom later this spring. The Civic Type R is an affordable sports car for the driving enthusiast, featuring a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 306 horsepower and a cartilage rattling 295 pound feet of torque. Serious drivers will appreciate the short-throw six-speed manual transmission, which is the only gearbox that comes with the Type R.

Civic Type R Ready to Race

From the stiffly-bolstered lightweight front seats that hold you in place as you power around corners to the customized driving modes that help you adjust to various road conditions, the Honda Civic Type R is ready for the track as soon as it comes off the showroom floor. The +R driving mode selector lets you pick any of three customized settings that adjust the steering, throttle and suspension for optimal performance and handling. Adaptive dampers read the road and adjust on the fly to give the most stability, while a limited slip differential makes sure the wheels get traction as needed for better cornering.

Aero Kit Gives Racing Advantage

The Honda Civic Type R offers an aerodynamic kit that has the advantage of going through thousands of track runs to fine tune the use of air for handling and efficiency. Side and front splitters, along with vortex generators and a large rear wing work together to keep the wheels glued to the road. Large 20-inch wheels can handle the special tires you need for such a monster of the track. The triple-exhaust system delivers a rumbling roar that lets the world know this is not your aunt’s Civic.

Dual Axis Struts Increase Feel of Road

Drivers of the new Honda Civic Type R will notice an increased road “feel” from other Civic models, due to the addition of Honda’s new “dual axis” front strut setup. This engineering marvel separates the steering knuckle from the strut to treat the steering and suspension forces differently. The new Civic Type R is expected to start in the mid-$30,000 range and only comes with a Touring trim package. This does include a 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration for both Apple and Android. Automatic climate control and a power 540-watt sound system are both standard. Check in often at Chapman Honda to see when the new Type R will be available for a test drive.
