Honda has spent decades manufacturing some of the most reliable vehicles on the road. Our 2022 models include six of the IIHS Top Safety Picks* and some of the most fuel-efficient cars on the market. Young drivers can choose from convenient sedans like the popular Honda Civic or something with enough room for outdoor activities and friends like the Honda CR-V. We also have some Honda hybrid cars like the Honda Insight, Honda Accord Hybrid, and Honda CR-V Hybrid which are excellent options for Detroit area drivers.

No matter what Honda you’ve had your eyes on for however long, your recent bachelor’s or associate’s degree can help you receive $500 toward Cap Cost Reduction or Down Payment Assistance**. That’s an entire monthly payment and some that new drivers don’t have to worry about.
