City Driving in California

city driving

Here at Keyes Honda, we offer a wide range of new and used cars that are perfect for city driving. Whether you're in Los Angeles or Santa Monica, you know that driving in a city is very different than driving on the highway or in the suburbs. Luckily, our new Honda cars can handle nearly any challenges you encounter.

City Driving Conditions

The biggest thing to keep in mind about city driving is that you'll probably encounter stop-and-go traffic. You need to pay close attention to the cars around you. If someone decides to hit the brakes, make a sudden turn, or pull out of a parking spot, you could have less time to react. That means that taking good care of your brakes is even more important, no matter what kind of car you're driving. You also need to keep an eye out for unpredictable pedestrians and remember that many city streets only allow one way traffic. Pay special attention to street signs and don't make any careless mistakes that could result in an accident. Finally, keep in mind that reaching your destination is just a part of the battle. Once you get there, you may need to rely on your parallel parking skills or leave your car in the hands of a valet.

Features to Look For & Honda Cars That Have Them

Fortunately, our Honda dealers can help you find a car that makes city driving easy. Our models offer useful technology and safety features, like a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. Choose from three different angles and get a better view of nearby obstacles when you park on a crowded city street. A Blind Spot Information System also gives you a better view of your surroundings and warns you if switching lanes could be dangerous. City drivers could be more aggressive than you would expect. A model like the 2017 Honda CR-V also offers Honda Sensing™ safety and driver assist technologies. Features like Adaptive Cruise Control, a Collision Mitigation Braking System™, and a Lane Keeping Assist System keep you safer on the highway, and they can keep you safer in cities as well. You can also opt for an available satellite-linked navigation system that makes it easier to find your way to your destination.
