Since its advent, the Honda CR-V has grown to be one of the most popular SUVs on the road. At our Virginia Honda dealership, we’re thrilled to have our showroom stocked with the incredibly attractive 2015 model!
Among SUV fans, the Honda CR-V has become associated with space, comfort, and versatility on the road. All of these qualities, which are positively crucial in an SUV, continue to shine through in the newest incarnation of this popular choice. You’re sure to love the spacious cabin and extreme cargo space, but the 2015 CR-V doesn’t stop there.
Throughout the cabin and under the hood, Honda has gone to great lengths to bring the 2015 CR-V into the future. With great features and improved performance, your adventures will never be the same again after you slide behind the wheel!
Whether you’re looking to save on gas prices or save the environment, this is the SUV for you. The 2015 Honda CR-V helps Virginia drivers use less fuel thanks to its 2.4L Earth Dreams i-VTEC engine.

Drivers have always been concerned with the cost of fuel, but rising prices in recent years definitely have today’s drivers sweating a bit. Considering the impact that fuel use has on the environment, as well, there’s no reason why you wouldn’t want to cut back your fuel usage!
At our Hyundai dealership in Virginia, we know that how you drive is just as important as what you drive when it comes to fuel efficiency. While we’re proud to boast about the incredible EPA estimates that the 2014 and 2015 Hyundai models in our showroom have earned, choosing a fuel efficient model is far from the only decision you can make to help cut back on the gas you use.
By using your head and putting some thought into the way you drive, you can get even more out of every drop you put into your favorite Hyundai model. It all starts when you start the engine.
While we certainly think it’s best to be prepared here at our Virginia Hyundai dealer, it’s equally important not to overburden yourself unnecessarily. Extra weight in your vehicle means that it has to work harder to go the same distance, so try not to weigh it down when you don’t have to. Keeping some emergency supplies in the trunk is always a good idea, but there’s no need to carry around your bowling ball collection if you’re not going to be using it.
Of course, there’s also plenty you can do to help your car out under the hood. Keeping up with regular maintenance, like oil and air filter changes, can give your Hyundai the boost it needs to perform at its best. Keeping your tires properly inflated is also essential in terms of fuel efficiency.
Lastly, drive smart! Putting the pedal to the metal may be tempting when the light turns green, but working the engine harder means burning more fuel. Accelerating and braking gradually go a long way toward saving gas.
Of course, these tips all go a lot further if you’re behind the wheel of an intelligently designed, fuel-efficient vehicle! For more information on the smartest new Hyundai models, be sure to contact Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg online or to call our team at (800) 764-2652 today!

The leaves have started to turn and the air has a distinct chill, all serving to herald the arrival of fall. While you should certainly enjoy the weather while you can, autumn is also the ideal time to take matters into your own hands and start preparing your vehicle for the coming winter.
At our Hyundai dealer serving Bowie, we know that colder weather can be rough on your vehicle. While tossing a good ice scraper in the trunk is certainly a good place to start, it definitely doesn’t cover all of your bases.
As the temperature drops, the unfortunate reality is that your car’s fuel efficiency drops, as well. In fact, drops if fuel efficiency around the 15% mark aren’t at all common for today’s drivers to experience. Fortunately, a few simple steps can help you get as much as possible out of every gallon.
As the experts in our Hyundai service center serving Bowie will tell you, winter preparations should start from the ground up. Your tires are potentially the single most important aspect of your vehicle when it comes to colder environments.
The grip of your tires is essential when it comes to icy conditions, but proper inflation is also crucial when it comes to optimizing fuel efficiency. Considering the natural drop in pressure your tires are sure to experience in the colder air, it’s essential to consult your owner’s manual or the sidewall of your tires for the proper pressure and make sure that each of your tires is set to the right level. Don’t forget the spare!
Additionally, your driving habits can have a big impact on your winter fuel economy. Rather than letting your car idle to warm up, simply take it nice and easy for the first few miles until the engine gets up to the appropriate temperature. Additionally, try to combine your errands to take advantage of your car already being warmed up!
Whether you’re due for new tires, an oil change, or a tune up, proper maintenance can help ensure that your car performs its best in any season. Our shop at Pohanka Hyundai is open seven days a week; no need for an appointment, just bring it in! For more information on the services that we provide, or if you prefer to schedule an appointment, be sure to contact our team online or to call us directly at (301) 423-1100 today.
