* MSRP excluding tax, license, registration, $875.00 destination charge and options. Dealers set own prices.
[1]  AT-PZEV (Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle) models as certified by California Air Resources Board (CARB) are available in California and states that have adopted California Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations.
[2]  Does not apply to fluid and filter changes. Will vary with driving conditions. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
[3]  Honda reminds you and your passenger to always buckle up. The front passenger seat of any vehicle is dangerous for children 12 and under due to the presence of front airbags. Because of this, along with the lack of a rear seat, Honda recommends that you do not carry any child, age 12 or under, as a passenger.
[4]  Based on 2015 EPA mileage ratings. Use for comparison purposes only. Your mileage will vary depending on driving conditions, how you drive and maintain your vehicle, battery-pack age/condition and other factors.
[5]  VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle’s course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
[6]  Always visually confirm that it is safe to drive before backing up; the rearview camera display does not provide complete information about all conditions and objects at the rear of your vehicle.
[7]  For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
[8]  The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ is available on EX models in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. (FM Traffic service only available in the United States, except Alaska.) Please see your Honda dealer for details.
[9]  The Bluetooth® word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc., and any use of such marks by Honda Motor Co., Ltd., is under license.
[10]  Compatible with select phones with Bluetooth®. Your wireless carrier's rate plans apply. State or local laws may limit use of texting feature. Only use texting feature when conditions allow you to do so safely.
[11]  Pandora, the Pandora logo, and the Pandora trade dress are trademarks or registered trademarks of Pandora Media, Inc. Used with permission. Compatible with select smartphones. See: www.pandora.com/everywhere/mobile. Not all devices compatible with USB connection. Your wireless carrier's rate plans apply.
[12]  The USB Audio Interface is used for direct connection to and control of some current digital audio players and other USB devices that contain MP3, WMA or AAC music files.
