However, to make the most of it, you’ll need the right car to help you get around to continue your journey.
If you’re considering learning more about the best vehicles for seniors, our team at Port Charlotte Honda is here to help you. Keep reading to see which of these senior-friendly Honda models is right for you!
If you’ve always been a lover of sedans, the Honda Accord could certainly be a step in the right direction. The sedan packs a bit of a punch with its 1.5L turbo engine, which boasts 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Although, a more powerful turbo engine and an eco-friendly hybrid engine are available—depending on your preference.
The interior is spacious and comfortable. The driver’s seat can be equipped with the 12-way power adjuster with lumbar support. The interior of the Accord also includes the 7-inch Screen with Customizable Feature Settings, which are easy to read and use when it’s time to select your entertainment for the ride.
If you plan on being active in your retirement years, you may want to add a little more space to your vehicle to bring all the materials you need, whether you plan on riding your bike, going fishing, or heading out on shopping excursions. The Honda CR-V generates 184 horsepower with its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine while remaining fuel efficient.
On top of the expansive head and legroom featured in the front row, the CR-V includes 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. But if you need more space, folding down the second row opens the cargo area to 75.8 cubic feet. The interior includes a 5-inch dashboard-mounted screen and includes Bluetooth® technology—which you can use to stay in touch with family and friends while you’re out on the road.
It’s always good to have some extra space with your vehicle, especially when you have friends and family in town. The Honda Pilot is a large SUV that produces 280 horsepower from its 3.5L V6. This SUV includes three rows of seating and some ample cargo in the rear.
The interior also includes some fun amenities like the 5-inch screen, Bluetooth®, USB and auxiliary connections, and the AM/FM radio. Upgrading to the next trim level will add a few amenities like HondaLink®, three months of SiriusXM® Radio, and even the SMS Text Message Function which sends texts right to your display screen.
Having a minivan like the Honda Odyssey has plenty of benefits. Whether you need the easy access through the side door, you need room for any walking assisting components, or you’ll be carting around family and friends, the Odyssey is a good choice. This vehicle can produce 280 horsepower from its 3.5L V6 engine.
The cabin offers three rows of seating with 163.6 cubic feet of space available. The interior also adds the 5-inch display screen with access to the media options, as well as Bluetooth® Streaming Audio.
Honda Sensing® Features
Most of these vehicles include, or offer as an available option, Honda Sensing®. This system is a suite of advanced driver-assisting features. The Auto High-Beam Headlights can detect low visibility and light and will activate and deactivate when a vehicle is approaching. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) detects a possible collision and uses braking pressure to reduce the severity of impact while giving you time to stop the vehicle completely. Honda Sensing® also includes the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), the Road Departure Mitigation System, and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
