After the COVID-19 outbreak in 2019, numerous businesses shut down or downsized. A large number of people lost their jobs and others had to take jobs that weren’t necessarily close to home. Although a lot of people are able to work from home, most people still commute to work, and having a fuel-efficient car can help your wallet.
Everyone is looking for ways to save money, and Honda cars, trucks, and SUVs have been known for their great fuel efficiency. Every time Honda puts out a new car, it seems like they keep getting better and better when it comes to low gas mileage. In 2020, the Honda Civic and Honda CR-V have been named two of the top commuter cars by DigitalTrends. The 2020 Honda Civic took the award for best overall, while the 2020 Honda CR-V was the named best commuter SUV.
Is Commuting Still a Thing?
About 10 years ago, 8% of commuters had to travel, on average, for 60 minutes or more. By 2018, that number jumped to 10%, and there were 4.3 million workers with a commute time of 90 minutes or more. That number rose by 1 million over an eight-year period, and there were only 3.3 million in 2010.
With the average daily commute being around one hour, travelling to work is more time consuming than ever before. It seems like the commute time is getting longer and longer each year, and having a fuel efficient car can help save money.
When it comes to fuel efficiency for commuters, the 2020 Honda Civic is affordable, reliable, fun to drive, has impressive features, and gets great gas mileage. With tons of technology and safety features, there are also plenty of options like: coupe, sedan, hatchback, the sporty Si, and super sporty Type R. The new Honda Civics have infotainment connectivity, including improved sound-deadening features to make your car peaceful when commuting.
The Honda Civic hatchback’s gas mileage is 31 miles per gallon in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. The Honda Civic Sedan or Honda Civic Coupe will give you 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway. The Honda Civic Si and Honda Civic Type R are lower at 26 in the city and 36 highway, and 22 city and 28 highway, respectively. With the latter two, you get more speed and power.
The Honda Civic Coupe is more about looks over cost, and the Honda Civic Sedan is spacious, comfortable, quick, with great fuel economy, and good looks.
The Honda CR-V is an SUV that feels like a regular car. It’s popular for its comfort and car-like drivability with the added benefit of extra space, and it also has off-road capabilities. This SUV doesn’t handle like a truck, and it doesn’t have the fuel efficiency headaches of trucks and SUVs.
As far as gas mileage goes, with a newer CR-V, you’ll get up to 34 mpg, and the new Honda CR-V Hybrid has a maximum 40 mpg city driving. The redesigned Honda CR-V makes a great, fuel-efficient SUV for commuting and everyday life.
The CR-V options include:
- Heated front seats
- Power moonroof
- Adjustable power front seats
- Multi-angle rearview camera
- Leather-trimmed interior
- Power tailgate
- Automatic dimming rearview mirror
- Wireless phone charger
- Available 19” alloy wheels
- To add safety to your efficient commute, all new Honda vehicles come with Honda Sensing® safety system standard
With Honda, you don’t need to sacrifice fuel efficiency for power. You can have a powerful and fun to drive car that saves on gas. Enjoy the drive with a new Honda Civic or Honda CR-V and know that you are saving money every time you turn on the engine and pull out of your driveway.
