“As far as the eye can see” is a phrase Texans take quite literally, especially those of us here in Midland. Known as the “Tall City,” Midland got its nickname for its downtown cityscape, which can be seen for miles before entering the city limits. This cityscape signifies everything Midland has to offer and is one of the many reasons we are proud to be your Honda dealer in Western TX.
We’re here to help you enjoy everything our state offers. That starts by helping you find the perfect Honda to help you travel as far as the eye can see, enjoying the west Texas desert and beyond. So, how do you know which Honda is right for you? We’re here to help you answer that question with a closer look at Honda’s top sellers that are ideal for Midland drivers.
Did you know that Midland drivers have pretty short commutes, averaging 19.2 minutes one way? How does this compare to your commute? Does your job require you to travel, or do you find yourself making frequent trips into the bustling metropolis of Dallas or heading in the opposite direction toward El Paso? Whatever the case, you might be in the market for an efficient sedan that will save you plenty of money at the pump.
The 2022 Insight will do precisely that as Honda’s hybrid sedan that takes many design cues from the best-selling Civic. The sophisticated sedan averages an EPA-estimated 55 MPG in the city and 49 MPG on the highway, a fuel economy that doesn’t come at the cost of the Insight’s 151 horsepower engine.[a] Beyond power and efficiency, the Insight is an incredible value with its long list of features, including the Honda Sensing suite that earned the Insight a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for 2022.[b]
First introduced in the early 1970s, the Civic is a staple in the Honda lineup and takes the crown as its most affordable sedan. For $22,550, you can get behind the wheel of the Civic LX and reap the benefits of everything Honda has to offer.[c] The Civic’s 158 horsepower 2.0L engine makes it quick to accelerate, and its Sport Mode delivers an engaging driving experience. More importantly, this power doesn’t come at the cost of efficiency, with the Civic averaging an EPA-estimated 31 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on the highway.[d]
The LX sets the baseline for the 2022 Honda Civic lineup and comes equipped with smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and a multi-angle rearview camera. Your safety is also a top priority for Honda, as the automaker outfits the Civic LX with an exceptional suite of driver-assist tools like a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and a Lane Keeping Assist System. Additional amenities include push-button start, automatic climate control, and full LED headlights for optimal visibility.
For those looking for something more spacious than a sedan and a higher driving position, look no further than the 2022 Honda HR-V. Starting at $21,870, the HR-V is the smallest and most affordable subcompact SUV in the Honda fleet and proves there’s far more than what meets the eye.[e] While it may be part of the subcompact class, the HR-V is surprisingly spacious with Honda’s revolutionary Magic Seat second row, which folds flat to give you a vast amount of room to haul cargo. Since the seat offers a 60-40 split design, you have plenty of options to configure the cabin to your needs.
Beyond its versatile interior, the HR-V is well equipped and capable with its 141-horsepower engine and available all-wheel drive. Its size and powertrain work to its advantage, making the HR-V easy to maneuver in town and responsive at highway speeds. Even more impressive is that it’s incredibly efficient, with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway, which puts more money in your wallet without sacrificing the ability to haul passengers or cargo.[f]
Earning a spot on Car and Driver’s 2022 Editors’ Choice list, our list wouldn’t be complete without the best-selling CR-V.[g] Initially known as Honda’s “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle,” the 2022 Honda CR-V is a favorite because of its versatile interior, efficient powertrain, and expansive suite of features. Its ability to combine practicality with comfort and innovation is truly remarkable and is what makes it an exceptional value at $26,800.[e]
Powered by a 190 horsepower turbocharged engine, the 2022 CR-V is enjoyable to drive, especially when you opt for all-wheel drive. Honda also gives you plenty of options to find the perfect CR-V for your needs, with a lineup that runs from the LX base model to the top-tier Touring. The Touring is especially attractive if you’re looking for top-tier luxury, technology, and capability. It comes with all-wheel drive, wireless phone charging, a leather interior, and Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation System.
As Honda’s largest SUV in the fleet, the 2022 Honda Pilot has plenty to offer families who need the spaciousness of a minivan without actually having to drive a minivan. The Pilot offers three rows of seating, including one-touch second-row seats for optimal convenience when configuring the cabin to your passenger or cargo-hauling needs. Along with this spaciousness, Honda guarantees the Pilot can handle itself in any condition with its 280 horsepower V6 engine, available all-wheel drive system, and Intelligent Traction Management system with Snow, Sand, and Mud Modes. This capability doesn’t sacrifice the Pilot’s fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 20 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway.[h]
The Pilot further differentiates itself from a minivan with its many interior luxuries and features that guarantee your comfort. For example, every model comes standard with heated front seats, LED lights, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Intuitive technology is also plentiful and ranges from smartphone integration and Bluetooth capability to the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features that include Adaptive Cruise Control.
Texans love their trucks, and we guarantee Midland drivers will find plenty to love about the 2022 Honda Ridgeline. Moving away from the traditional body-on-frame platform, the Ridgeline’s unibody platform gives it a unique design and adds versatility. What do we mean? It equips the truck with an in-bed trunk and a lay-flat truck bed for all your cargo-hauling needs.
Inside, the Ridgeline gives you every reason to enjoy your time in the road warrior. For example, trims like the RTL come with a leather-trimmed interior, heated front seats, and a one-touch power moonroof. The RTL-E takes convenience to the next level with wireless phone charging and an integrated truck bed audio system, making every campout or tailgate a memorable event. Trims like the Black Edition put the Ridgeline in stealth mode, outfitting it with Black Edition exterior trim, Black Edition leather interior, 18-inch black wheels, and red ambient LED lighting.
Are you looking for a sedan that will save you hundreds of dollars in fuel every year, or do you need a spacious SUV to accommodate your growing family? Perhaps you’re looking for a road warrior that can tow the family camper to the lake for the weekend and meet the demands of your workweek. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Honda’s 2022 lineup, thanks to best-selling models like the Insight, Civic, HR-V, CR-V, Pilot, and Ridgeline. We here at Classic Honda of Midland welcome you to come in and experience these great models for yourself.
