Killeen Hybrids: 2017 Accord Hybrid

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Oct 10, 2016 @ 12:57 PM


So you're into looking at local Killeen Hybrids but you don't want to forgo sophistication for fuel-economy. What if we told you that you don't have to? With the new 2017 Accord Hybrid, you can have it all – styling, technology and unbeatable fuel-economy. Cleo Bay Honda is thrilled to have a few of these "unicorn" cars in stock but first, let us tell you all about them.


State of the Art Technology

It's the inside that counts, and this Accord will not let you down. In fact, it will lift you up with the driver memory seats with two savable positions. The multi-information display with navigation will never lead you astray and will keep you from fumbling with the directions on your phone. Did we mention the leather accents in the hybrid? That's not a bad deal either! Other notable features are the push start button, dual climate control (we know how finicky the weather can be), HomeLink, ample console space and available front and rear heated seats. Comfort, convenience, and sophistication – the 2017 Accord Hybrid has it all.


Exquisite Styling

The Hybrid has a sleek exterior to match it's innovative and cutting-edge interior. The bold, angular lines make it stand out as a stylish vehicle with a touch of sportiness! A birds-eye view of the Accord will show the one-touch power moonroof that would be perfect for a warm, sunny Cincinnati day or to let in some cool air in the fall. This hybrid wouldn't be top-of-the line without bright LED taillights with special blue accent lighting for that extra touch. The Accord Hybrid is available in 8 beautiful color options for you to show your personality whether it’s a chic White Orchid Pearl or a shocking Vortex Blue Pearl.


Unbeatable MPG

Now, you are probably considering a hybrid vehicle for several reasons, but we're guessing that part of the reason is because of their historically impressive fuel economy. We're proud to say that the Accord really tops the charts with MPG! You'll be able to get 49 MPG in the city and 47 MPG on the highway* in the 2017 Accord Hybrid, which really means you can make the trip last if you know what we mean! Saving money while saving the environment, we call that a win-win!


See what we're saying when we say it is truly one-of-a-kind? You just won't find a better Killeen Hybrid out there. Stop in for a test drive or explore what we have in stock at Cleo Bay Honda!

Inside the 2017 Honda Fit in Killeen

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Oct 03, 2016 @ 12:52 PM


This just in - the 2017 Honda Fit in Killeen has arrived at Cleo Bay Honda! The 2016-year model Fit was a hit and this excitement will carry on over to the 2017-year model without a doubt. This new Fit is more versatile, more high tech and safer than ever before. It certainly will outperform other subcompact competition. Let's check out what you have to look forward to inside of this new 2017 Fit!


Comfort Features

There's a reason it's called the "Fit" and it's because it's designed to fit you like a glove. Things like mounted steering wheel controls with audio, phone and voice command will make you feel in complete control of the car. A thoughtfully designed center console with USB and 12-volt power outlets will keep you connected. The 2nd-Row Magic Seat (created by Honda) will give you four different ways to create the space you need. Heated seats will be there for you when you need it (standard on the EX-L) or just when you feel like it!


Technology Features

You'll never feel lost with the 2017 Fit because every technological addition for the car was made to help you get back to where you need to be. This could be taken literally with the sense of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System that not only has turn-by-turn directions, but is also hooked up to the voice recognition. The Smart Entry helps you in those times you can't quite locate the keys in your purse or pocket – Smart Entry allows you to lock or unlock your door without touching a key.


Safety Features

There just isn't a "blind spot" in the Fit – not with the Honda LaneWatch feature exclusively in Honda vehicles. Just signal right and a small camera displays real-time video on the display screen to reveal nearly 4x more than the passenger-side mirror alone! For added exterior protection, Honda has implemented the Fit with ACE Body Structure, which is like an extra armor of protection for you and passengers. Other safety features like Vehicle Stability Assist and Daytime Running Lights put this subcompact car on the higher end of the road.


Maybe it's not asking what the 2017 Honda Fit in Killeen can do, but more of what can it not do? Cleo Bay Honda really believes this subcompact car is the real deal. Take our word for it by taking it for a test drive today!

The 2017 Odyssey in Killeen Coming Soon!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Fri, Sep 23, 2016 @ 04:28 PM


Despite popular belief, the minivans that are out today are not your mother's minivan. They are more high-tech, sleek and functional than ever before, and if you're not taking advantage of all of the perks that come with owning a minivan, you're missing out! Cleo Bay Honda is expecting one minivan in particular to really stand out this 2017 model year – the 2017 Odyssey in Killeen. Why? Let's find out.  


The last time the Honda Odyssey received a noticeable facelift was in 2014. Although nothing has been officially unveiled yet, there is good reason to believe that this 2017 Odyssey will be a little more updated. It has been rumored that this 5th generation Odyssey will be based off of 2016 Acura models. Unlike boxy minivans of the past, this minivan will have clean lines and be streamlined for ultimate styling.


We can expect the interior to be drastically updated, as are the current 2017 model Hondas. The interior will mirror the exterior essentially, with clean lines and a modern-feel. We have reason to believe that the HondaSensing suite will be offered, as does the 2017 Accord, 2017 Ridgeline and 2017 Fit. This minivan will be the most powerful on the block with at least 250 horsepower, which really makes it a competitive option. There have also been rumors that it will have an improved VCM like the 2016 Pilot and an All Wheel Drive option.


There is a lot to look forward to in the 2017 Honda Odyssey in Killeen! Power, versatility and an updated exterior are just a few reasons to be excited. While Cleo Bay Honda doesn't have it in stock yet, keep checking back for more updates! Or, you can always shop your 2016 Honda Odyssey options, which is still a really great choice!

Get Revved Up About the 2017 Civic Hatchback in Killeen

Posted by Jessica McFall on Tue, Sep 20, 2016 @ 07:59 PM


What is incredibly cargo-friendly, fuel-efficient and powerful? It's the 2017 Civic Hatchback in Killeen! This Civic is landing for the first time in the U.S., and we already know it's going to be a head turner. Aggressive styling, cutting-edge technology and an engine that will get you revved up are just a few words to describe this new hatchback. It still has yet to arrive in the Cleo Bay Honda showroom, but we want to be the first to show you what to expect.


The turbocharged engine in the new Civic Hatchback is something you could only dream of in a hatchback of this size. The 1.5L 4-cylinder engine has an available 6-speed manual transmission and produces an impressive 174 horsepower. And while we haven't seen an official unveiling in America just yet, the debut of the Honda Civic Hatchback at the Geneva Auto Show showed a hatchback prototype that we should expect to be very similar to the U.S. model.


According to an article by, "The styling of the new Civic hatch has a slightly more conventional four-door appearance than that of the current model… To our eyes, this may be the best-realized iteration of the 10th-generation Civic styling. The model has been on sale in sedan form since last fall and is just now being joined by the two-door coupe. In making a bigger-than-usual break with its predecessor in terms of engineering and design, the new version, Honda hopes, will recapture the Civic's mojo after a couple of milquetoast designs."


In addition to the new styling and power, the Civic Hatchback will also have the latest and greatest in the automotive technology like Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and an information display touch screen. So, as you can already see, we have a lot to look forward to in the new 2017 Civic Hatchback in Killeen! Stay tuned for updates about this new car, but until then, check out what new vehicles we already have in stock at Cleo Bay Honda.

Drive the 2017 Accord in Killeen!

Posted by Jessica McFall on Mon, Sep 19, 2016 @ 03:15 PM


The 2017 Accord in Killeen hit our Cleo Bay Honda showroom not too long ago and its already flying off of the lot! It's no surprise that this Honda car, even after 40 years of being in production, is still wowing us with new, never-before-seen features and concepts. Whether you're a long time Accord owner, or just deciding to get on the bandwagon, let's look at an overview of what you'll see in this new sophisticated Accord!


So, what can you expect in this new Accord? Well, for starters the 2017 Accord has a grille design that will make you double take when you notice the (available) LED headlights and daytime running lights. The body style is elegant and bold with angular lines and beautifully designed wheels for the perfect combination of sophistication and confidence. It's not just the headlights that are LED, the taillights are too for 360 degrees of an eye-catching vehicle.


Aside from the exterior, you have some interior features to look forward to. The interior is completely refined to make driving the Accord enjoyable. Features that were created for optimal driving comfort include the ergonomically-designed steering wheel with controls, 10-way adjustable memory seats, one-click shifting gears, a push start button, dual-zone AC, HomeLink®, and a functional center console complete with space for a tablet.


Because safety features are really what make or break a new car decision, let's talk about those. Honda really had the consumer in mind when designing the new 2017 Honda Accord in San Antonio, and it's evident in the technology that was implemented. Honda created the Honda Sensing™ suite that will alert you of dangers outside the vehicle when you might not see them yourself. In addition to the Honda Sensing™ suite, there is the Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System and the Road Departure Mitigation System. To put it lightly, the Accord will keep you safe in a variety of scenarios!


Lastly, there is an Accord Hybrid option for those of you who are fuel-conscious. The Accord Hybrid gets an incredible 49/47-MPG city/highway* which really makes an impact considering competition doesn't get more than 43 city MPG. The Accord Hybrid is making waves in the Hybrid category because not only is it fuel efficient, but it still gets 212 horsepower with the use of two motors! This is made possible by the fact that it can switch into Sport Mode for better acceleration.

Top Family Cars in Killeen: Honda Pilot and Honda Civic

Posted by Jessica McFall on Thu, Aug 25, 2016 @ 09:48 PM


Two of our very own Honda vehicles at Cleo Bay Honda ranked as the Best Family Cars of 2016 from Parent's Magazine and! We've been talking about these cars all year, but this recent award really sets in the fact just how astounding these model year cars are. Being named a "family best" is no easy task, and Honda really goes the extra mile in safety and technology features by putting family top of mind. What makes the Pilot and the Civic top family cars in Killeen?


As mentioned, the 2016 Honda Civic was selected as 1 of 10 out of hundreds of vehicles. The Civic is also named the 2016 North American Car of the Year and it's not a coincidence that it's winning so awards – the details are what make the Civic so great. Firstly, it received the highest available safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, as well named a Top Safety Pick+ form the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These awards have to do with the addition of the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, available on all trims, making Civic the most affordable new car in America with these advanced safety technologies, including automatic emergency braking (when equipped with optional front crash prevention).



The family-first 2016 Honda Pilot was also on the list of Best Family Cars of 2016. The Pilot is the perfect vehicle for any growing family, as it is as spacious as it is high-tech. The interior was well thought out with a total of 8 available seats, over 109 cubic feet of cargo space, as well as collapsible back seats. The Pilot really won Parent's Magazine over with the next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and multi-angle rear view camera. Like the Civic, the Pilot earned top safety ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS.



Whether you have a family currently or considering starting one, either the 2016 Civic Sedan or the 2016 Honda Pilot are great choices for the top family cars in Killeen. We've always known they were impressive, but now we have the recognition to prove it! Interested in these two amazing vehicles? We'd be happy to set you up for a test drive at Cleo Bay Honda!

2017 Ridgeline vs. New GMC Canyon in Killeen

Posted by Jessica McFall on Wed, Aug 24, 2016 @ 09:24 PM


Trucks are taking over the Killeen highways, and for great reasons! The newest trucks out there are top of the line in power, performance and features, but only one can really stand the test of time. Cleo Bay Honda is going to do a comparison of two popular trucks, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline and the GMC Canyon in Killeen to truly see which one is the truck for you!


Let's start by talking fun stuff – features. The GMC Canyon has a hard time catching up to the new Ridgeline as it lacks several key features of the new Honda truck. The Ridgeline has memory seats that holds customized positions for up to two drivers, it has one-touch power windows, a push button start, a locking fuel door to prevent vandalism, automatic dimming high beam lights, heated steering wheel, dual zone AC, in-bed audio system and more. We could go on, but there are so many features the Canyon lacks, we'd run out of time!


As far as safety goes, you're better off with the Ridgeline in this aspect, too. The Ridgeline has a standard collision mitigation braking system, a cross-path warning system, and a 3-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment for that extra measure of impact protection. Both trucks have standard airbags, rearview cameras and available all-wheel drive, but those extra safety features really make a difference with the Ridgeline!


Both have comparable fuel economy (Ridgeline 19 city/26 highway and Canyon 18 city/26 highway*) but the power on the Ridgeline definitely stands out. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline touts an incredible 280 horsepower – 80 more horsepower than the competition, the GMC Canyon. This will get you farther, faster with the Ridgeline's engine control system that can shut down half of the engine's cylinders to improve efficiency. Efficient and powerful? This truck is everything.


Amazing features, cutting edge safety qualities, power and fuel efficient, it's hard not to choose the 2017 Honda Ridgeline over the GMC Canyon in Killeen. As great as this truck looks online, it's even more impressive in person. Stop in Cleo Bay Honda today for a test drive and we'll be happy to help you get your hands on the wheel!

New Killeen Trucks: Chevy Colorado vs. Honda Ridgeline

Posted by Jessica McFall on Thu, Aug 11, 2016 @ 09:14 PM


So, you're looking for new Killeen trucks and don't know where to start? Welcome to the Cleo Bay Honda blog where we do just that – help you on your way in your new car buying process! Trucks today are much different than trucks of the past. They're more innovative than ever, more powerful than ever and safer than ever. Forget all past experiences with trucks, we're going to compare two popular, front-running trucks: the new Chevy Colorado and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline!


Comfort and Technology.

The Ridgeling RTL-E has memory seats that activate different, customized positions for the driver. But memory seats aren't the only feature that the Colorado doesn't offer, it's the one-touch power windows, the push-start button, dual-zone AC, standard adaptive cruise control, standard Bluetooth wireless (Bluetooth costs extra on the Colorado), an in-bed trunk, a 115-volt electrical outlet, and rear AC vents (a must in Texas). With all of these features combined, you'll be significantly more comfortable in the Ridgeline.


Power and Performance.

The Honda truck's 280 horsepower V6 engine is refreshing as it's quite a bit faster than it's predecessor. The Chevy truck on the other hand touts only 200 horsepower and has the acceleration more of a mid-size care than SUV. Speaking of SUVs, the Ridgeline has the cabin-feel of the SUV being wider and favoring its cousin, the Honda Pilot. This is great news for those of you who plan to cart the family around in the new truck! The new Colorado is slightly larger than previous generations, but still feels narrow and cramped.



The 2017 Ridgeline in San Antonio is takes more safety measures than does the Colorado. The Ridgeline (RTL-E/Black Edition) has standard Collision Mitigation Braking System, which warns the driver of a potential collision and will automatically brake if the driver doesn't react to alert. The Colorado offers a warning system, but not the automated braking feature that could potentially reduce the collision. The Ridgeline also offers a cross-path warning system and a 3D high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment that provides extra impact protection.


Do you see what we see? When it comes to new Killeen trucks, the 2017 Ridgeline dominates in comfort, technology, power, performance and safety! Stop on in Cleo Bay Honda and we'll get you hooked up for an exclusive test drive in the all-new Honda Ridgeline!
