Get Everyone Moving in the 2017 Toyota Sienna

If you’ve got a lot of people to transport and a little car to do it in, the day becomes stressful. As you look to the new year for a fresh start, a new minivan might be just what the doctor ordered. And the 2017 Toyota Sienna is a pretty stellar minivan.

Right when you sit down, you’ll notice the wraparound, driver-centric dashboard design, which positions all of the controls in easy-to-reach proximity to the driver’s seat. When everyone else is clambering in, you’ll all be happy to have the available dual power sliding side doors, which slide open at the push of a button, whether that button’s on your overhead console, interior center pillar or right on your available Smart Key fob. Your passengers can also just give the handles a tug and stand back to watch the magic. The available power liftgate is another convenient add-on, allowing you to open the back from your key fob, and close it from your driver’s seat.

So it’s easy to get inside the 2017 Toyota Sienna, but what’s waiting for you when you do? Thirty cubic feet behind the third row, and an unbelievable 150 cubic feet of cargo capacity with the second and third row seats folded down. So your family hauler can easily become your own personal moving van. Maybe keep that last part to yourself though. If word gets out, you may never have a weekend to yourself again!

Did we mention that the new Toyota Sienna is also a ton of fun to drive? With 140 spot welds in the chassis to stiffen the body, you’ll be surprised at the smooth ride and impressive response. Air-fin stabilizers are also on hand to smooth out airflow, which reduces wind noise and improves efficiency. For added fun, you can opt for the Toyota Sienna SE, which boasts a retuned sport suspension.

If a minivan is a bit bigger than what you’re after, fear not! We’ve got a ton of great Toyota vehicles for sale here at Keyes Cars near Santa Monica, CA.

Honda Promises Incredible Performance in the 2017 Honda Civic Si

The 2017 Honda Civic is a high-performance automobile that we absolutely love here at Keyes Cars. And next year, the Honda Civic lineup is slated to get some new additions in the form of the Honda Civic Si Sedan and Honda Civic Si Coupe. Last month, Honda unveiled the Honda Civic Si Prototype, giving us some insight into what we can look forward to next year.

Powering these new models will be a high-performance, high-torque, 1.5-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged DOHC in-line 4-cylinder engine with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC) mated to a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission. A new active damper system, active steering system, limited-slip differential and available high-performance tires will further enhance performance. Here’s Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of Honda:

“With the new Honda Civic Si, we're injecting even more sporty goodness into our 10th-generation Civic lineup. This will be, hands down, the fastest, best-handling Si we've ever offered to our customers."

We can’t wait to get behind the wheel of these upcoming models. If you’re similarly impatient to step into a new Honda vehicle, then head in to our dealership near Los Angeles, CA to test drive one of the Honda Civic models currently on our lot. With a bold, aggressive face and sharp, sophisticated bodylines, you’ll be struck by the Honda Civic before you ever get behind the wheel. Boasting up to 174 horsepower, a fully independent suspension, and two transmissions to choose from, performance is the name of the game in the Honda Civic.

Here at Keyes Cars, we have over 1,000 new sedans waiting for the right driver. Come in today for a test drive and let us help you find your next car.

Lexus Spices Things Up with the 2017 Lexus Sriracha IS

The 2017 Lexus IS sports sedan is now available, and to celebrate the debut of their hot new vehicle, Lexus created a custom edition: the Lexus Sriracha IS. If you like spicy foods, you’re no stranger to the thick red hot sauce in the squeezable bottle. With this special edition, Lexus has bottled that spicy flavor inside the body of an automobile.
The custom ride is currently on display at The Los Angeles Auto Show. Here’s Brian Smith, Lexus vice president of marketing: “The new Lexus IS is so hot, we decided to make it Sriracha hot, with all the custom details every Sriracha fan will appreciate.”

So what do you get inside the Lexus Sriracha IS? Right away, you’ll notice the Sriracha Red paint job, complete with flecks chili-like flakes. Designed to mimic the delicious hot sauce, Lexus went so far as to actually add some in to the paint itself! And that’s just the beginning. To create the steering wheel, a Sriracha-like liquid was cast in resin and formed into a Lexus steering wheel. The steering wheel comes complete with a “Hot Handling” warning.

This special edition ride is about more than just good looks. The seat warmers and AC/heating system got an upgrade to help them take the interior from cool to Sriracha hot. Even better? Sriracha mode tunes the powertrain for faster gear changes and more dynamic throttle mapping. Our favorite feature here at Keyes Cars is the fully stocked trunk. It’s loaded to the brim with 43 bottles of Sriracha.

To check out our full selection of hot new 2017 Lexus vehicles, head in to our dealership in Van Nuys, CA. We’re ready to turn up the heat and take you for a test drive!

Meet the Mighty 2017 Toyota Tundra

With over 80 years of experience building them, you can be confident that the Toyota brand knows their way around a truck. And trust us here at Keyes Cars, they’ve brought all of their experience to bear on the 2017 Toyota Tundra. With strength and dependability to spare, this is one tough truck that will have your back for years to come. In fact, more than 90% of Toyota Tundra models sold over the last 15 years are still on the road. Now that’s impressive.

Another impressive fact? Every Toyota Tundra is assembled in San Antonio, TX. Once assembled, the trucks head off to Michigan for engineering, where they’re pitted against some of the harshest conditions to ensure that they’re built to tackle whatever mother nature’s got up her sleeve. Of course, engineering isn’t the last step. Styling comes next, ensuring that this isn’t just a truck you want on the road, it’s one you won’t mind having in your driveway either. That styling takes place in Michigan and in California, which brings a smile to our faces here at our dealership near Van Nuys, CA.

Three bed lengths are available to choose from—a 5.5.-ft. short bed, a 6.5-ft. standard bed, and an 8.1-ft. long bed. Each bed is 5.5-ft. wide and 22.2-in. deep, meaning you have plenty of space no matter which bed you choose. A versatile tailgate grants you even more usability. Lower, lift, open, close, remove, and lock it with ease. An available deck rail system includes tie-down cleats. Each cleat is rated at 220 pounds in order to keep your heavy cargo from moving around.

Head in now to check out the new 2017 Toyota Tundra, as well as the rest of our new pickup trucks for sale.

Get Moving in the 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Come in to Keyes Cars today to test drive the 2017 Hyundai Elantra. It’s been built from the ground up to deliver a ride you’ll enjoy. The body features a higher ratio of high-strength steel to reduce body flex. Front suspension and steering bushings were improved to reduce vibration. When you put your foot to the gas pedal, you probably won’t notice any of this. What you will notice is a smooth, responsive ride. You’ll also notice how quiet the Hyundai Elantra is thanks to these features, as well as an updated rear suspension geometry, added insulation in the upper body, and thicker front door and rear window glass.

If your favorite thing to do is crank up your playlist as soon as you hit the open road, you’ll be glad to know that the new Hyundai Elantra was designed with you in mind. While the compression used on most digital music files muddies the vibrancy and fidelity of your favorite songs, the Infinity® Premium Audio with Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology inside the Hyundai Elantra steps in to ensure that you get to enjoy the full potential hiding out in each track. This class-exclusive technology sends sound through 8 speakers for optimum performance and premium sound quality.

Another great feature is the available Smart Cruise Control. When activated, it keeps an eye on the lane ahead of you, automatically slowing or speeding up to maintain a safe distance with the vehicle ahead. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist is also available to help alert you to vehicles hiding out in your blind spot.

To learn more about the 2017 Hyundai Elantra, head in to our dealership today. We’ve also got a great selection of pre-owned and used cars here near Los Angeles, CA.
