Since then he’s performed in hit shows like EntourageBones, and American Horror Story. Recently, Steve shifted his role from in front of the camera to behind, working in the area of directing and producing films.

Why the Honda CR-V Is Perfect for a Day at the Beach

If there’s one thing that people from Long Beach, Cerritos, and Los Angeles have in common it’s a love for the beach. Sandy shores for tanning, wild waves for surfing, and more line the California coast, ready for people young and old to take in some sun. And while technically any set of wheels can get you to the shore (skateboards included), there’s one vehicle in particular that seems almost specially made for a beach vacation: the Honda CR-V.

This powerful SUV is perfect for a day spent seaside, and your friends at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore in Cerritos are here to tell you why.

Beach-Friendly Accessories of the Honda CR-V

2016crvblankThere are a lot of activities that people love doing on the beach. Two of the most popular are surfing and bike riding. But how does somebody transport their bikes or surfboards to the shore? If you live close enough, you could ride your bike to the shore, but that can be exhausting. You’ll probably have less success, however, trying cruise down the Long Beach Freeway on your surfboard. So an adequate vehicle is needed.

To help you transport your larger beach equipment, the Honda CR-V features available roof rails that can be fitted with any number of accessories. These versatile vehicle appendages can allow you to securely mount your bicycles, surfboards, or even a kayak.

More Cargo Space for Your Beach Gear

2016HondaCRVTrunkThere’s nothing wrong with a well-made sedan. Even a sporty coupe has its benefits. But if you’re looking for maximum cargo room, there’s nothing like opening up the hatch of a sizeable SUV. The Honda CR-V features an impressive 70.9 cubic feet of total cargo room, with 37.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row seats. To compare, the Honda Accord sedan features a 15.8-cubic-foot trunk.

Imagine how much gear you could bring to the beach with 37.2 cubic feet of space. How about two coolers instead of just one? Or beach chairs and umbrellas for you and your four passengers? With this massive cargo space, you’ll be able to pack everything you need for an exquisite day on the sand and in the water. For more information on the Honda CR-V’s cargo space, read our 2016 Honda CR-V Vehicle Review!

All-Wheel Drive = Awesome Drive

Residents of Southern California might be strangers to the drive-on beach, but central and northern regions certainly aren’t. If you’re adventuring at one of these exclusive locations, you might be able to drive right onto the beach—imagine not having to carry all your gear down to the water!

However, if you want to avoid getting stuck in the sand, you’ll want a vehicle that’s equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), like the Honda CR-V.

The available Real Time AWD™ with the Honda CR-V can sense when the vehicle has lost traction. It then automatically sends power to the rear wheels to give you the additional grip you need to stay on course. This helpful performance feature is also great for driving on icy or snow-covered roads, but we’ll save that for another post.

5 Reasons Why the 2016 Honda Accord Should Be Your Next Vehicle

1. Exceptional Performance

2016 Honda Accord FrontMaybe it’s the drive-by-wire throttle system or the continuously variable transmission (CVT) that gives the 2016 Honda Accord its responsive drive and impressive handling. Then again, it might be available sport-tuned four-cylinder engine or the available V6.

Whatever it is, the Honda Accord delivers a comfortable yet sporty drive experience that’s sure to make every ride a little more enjoyable.

2. Powerful Engine Options

One of the many benefits of having a CVT is optimized acceleration. By providing the ideal gear ratio, the Honda Accord provides seamless shifting and plenty of horsepower. Just how much horsepower? The base engine generates 185 horsepower, while the Sport trim receives 189 horsepower. Meanwhile, the available V6 engine takes power up to 278 horsepower with 252 lb-ft of torque.

All that and you’ll still notice very little engine or road noise heard from inside the cabin. That’s the beauty of modern engineering.

3. Refined Handling

One of the most notable updates in the 2016 Honda Accord is to the steering and suspension system. All new Honda Accord models feature MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension along with electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. These changes help to give the Accord a more composed ride and superior handing. The result is an overall ride experience that’s noticeably smoother than previous models and steering that feels more natural.

4. A Stylish and Roomy Interior

5. Updated Infotainment System

In addition to its other audio functionality, the infotainment system of the 2016 Honda Accord received an update that allows users to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to connect their compatible devices. Properly equipped models allow drivers to tap, pinch, and use other familiar gestures to navigate the infotainment system just like you would a tablet or smart phone.
