Is it your first time car shopping? It’s natural to be nervous before you head into the dealership. This can be an especially nerve-wracking prospect if you’re a young woman. No matter how confident you may be, and whether you know a lot about cars or not, there is a bit of a stigma surrounding our gender and age.

Fortunately, at Island Honda, we are trained to meet the needs of all of 
customers, regardless of their experience in car-buying. We love helping the newest generation of auto lovers find the vehicles of their dreams, and we encourage you to come prepared with lots of questions. Your first car is a huge deal, and we understand that you will need a lot of information before you make a decision.


Not quite sure what you want? We’re happy to make suggestions, too. Take, for instance, the 2018 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L.

Are you hoping to find a wonderful vehicle on which to teach your teenagers how to drive? You need something extremely safe, but it also has to be a car that your son or daughter won’t be embarrassed to take to the movies with their friends. The 2018 Civic Coupe LX is a perfect choice. It’s compact and feature-laden, with a cool, athletic vibe your kids will love. It’s still a Honda, though, so it’s loaded with reliability and security.

The coupe starts off strong with a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder engine that can throw 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. Teens will adore how grown-up it makes them feel. A review by Autotrader.ca appreciated the six-speed CVT transmission that is mated to this system, too.



On the outside, this compact car boasts amazing aesthetics, with bold contours and innovative styling. Its two-door design puts forth a youthful vibe, and the almost spoiler-like rear is sure to impress. Inside, the Civic has heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, smart device integration, and keyless entry. There’s nothing your teens could find wanting in that lineup!

Safety is also paramount in this coupe, which includes a backup camera, stability control, and lane keeping assist. These additions will give you peace of mind as your child learns to drive.
