Affordable Cars for Central Illinois Drivers

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    We know it can be hard to find new affordable cars that deliver the features and fuel economy you need on a budget, but at Central Illinois Honda Dealers, we want to help. We’ve brought together the specs of three of our most affordable cars: the 2016 Honda Civic, Fit, and Accord. We would love to show you one, two, or all three of these cars in person with a test drive.

2016 Honda Civic

There are few vehicles with a legacy of affordability that can compare to the Civic, and the 10th generation of Honda’s small car is no exception. The 2016 Honda Civic LX Sedan has two new powertrains, and even the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder is both powerful and efficient; the basic 2016 Civic LX Sedan with 6-speed manual transmission is priced at just $18,640 (MSRP).*

We hope that price gets you interested in the Civic, but we know that a low price is just the starting point. Each basic Civic LX also includes:


2016 Honda Civic

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Connect your smartphone or other device to the Civic and stream audio or make and receive phone calls. Just sync once and your Civic will remember your device and connect automatically, no wires.

2016 Honda Civic

Steering Wheel–mounted Controls: Make phone calls, adjust the volume, or skip tracks on your driving soundtrack without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

2016 Honda Civic

Multi-angle Rearview Camera: Back up with confidence thanks to the Civic’s standard rear camera. Just shift into reverse and choose from three different views: standard, wide-angle, and top-down.


These are just a few features from the base trim level. Honda has five further trims—EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring—ensuring that there’s a Civic for nearly any kind of driver. The brand-new 1.5L turbocharged engine has one of the best fuel economies in its class, too, with 2016 Civic EX-T Sedan models rated at an EPA-estimated 42 highway mpg and 31 city mpg.**

The 2016 Civic Sedan has earned the 2016 Overall Best Buy award from Kelley Blue Book (that’s overall vehicle classes as well as the small car class).***

2016 Honda Fit

If you like the small stature of the Civic but would rather have something that’s a little more practical for city driving and hauling cargo, look no further than the 2016 Honda Fit. This subcompact hatchback has Honda’s Magic Seat for an easily expandable cargo area and comes in three different trim levels. The base 2016 Fit LX with manual transmission has a price of just $15,790 (MSRP)* and outclasses its competition on features.

2016 Honda Fit features include:


2016 Honda Fit

Magic Seat: Hatchback vehicles are meant to be versatile, but few can compete with the Magic Seat, which lets you fold up the rear seat for tall cargo or quickly fold down part or all of it to expand the rear cargo area.

2016 Honda Fit

Multi-angle Rearview Camera: Like the Civic, the Fit gives you the peace of mind that comes with an extra set of eyes on what’s behind your vehicle.

2016 Honda Fit

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Connect your smartphone to the Fit and stream audio, make hands-free phone calls, and more.


The fuel economy numbers and price help make the Fit one of the most affordable cars for Central Illinois drivers, and the 2016 Honda Fit LX with CVT gets an EPA-estimated 41 highway mpg.**

2016 Honda Accord

The big sibling to the Civic, the 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan has a base price of $22,105 (MSRP)* and delivers the kind of affordability and practicality drivers want out of the Civic to the midsize car class. The Accord’s long list of features and spacious five-passenger cabin combine with those amenities and the low price to create one of the most compelling family sedans on the road.

Popular Accord amenities include:


2016 Honda Accord

16-inch Alloy Wheels: Made to look good while remaining lightweight and durable, alloy wheels are a reminder that Honda doesn’t make drivers compromise on value for style.

2016 Honda Accord

Multi-angle Rearview Camera: The Fit, Civic, and Accord all sport the new multi-angle rearview camera while many Accord competitors still require an upgrade for any camera.

2016 Honda Accord

Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: The Accord is still ahead of many of its competitors by including Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio connectivity as standard.


The 2016 Honda Accord has two engine options, a 2.4L 4-cylinder and a 3.5L V6, as well as six trim levels. The base-level 2016 Accord LX CVT Sedan is affordable in the long run as well with its EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.**

The 2016 Honda Accord was named to the 2016 Car and Driver 10Best list,***** making this the 30th time that Honda’s sedan has been recognized by the car magazine.
