Dual-clutch transmissions, like the one shown above, are fairly prominent in the industry now, offering faster shift times than a conventional automatic and fewer parasitic losses. Now Honda just patented a triple-clutch, 11 speed transmission that promises even better performance. Can you even handle all those…
The Mazda3 should be a little worried. That’s because the new Honda Civic happens to finally be good again, and this morning Honda unveiled what is undoubtedly the best version of it yet: the 2017 Civic Hatchback. It can be had with a turbo. And a manual!
Most off-road motorcycle fans are familiar with the Honda CRF450 dirt bikes. The R and X variants have been very successful in motocross and endurance racing respectively. For 2017, they’re getting majorly revised for the first time in ages. And getting a brand-new sibling as well.
I like the new Honda Civic. It feels big enough that it could almost be an Accord, but its combination of value and fun make it a real return to form for Honda. Only one problem—the sedan and coupe look like hatchbacks, but they are not. Until now! From our friends at the CivicX forums, here is your new Civic hatch.
Honda in the early ‘90s was so successful building engines for Formula One, it encouraged its engineers to construct an entire F1 car in their spare time. They never even intended to race it. They were just like ‘hey why don’t we build an F1 car for shits and giggles.’ And they did.
Another list of the most stolen vehicles in America is out, and at the top of the list is the same goddamn car that’s always at the top of the most stolen lists: the 1990s Honda Accord. How are there any left to steal?
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
There’s a new Acura NSX out. I don’t know if you heard about this, but Honda was working on it for a while. The new one’s all-wheel drive with an advanced hybrid system and a dual-clutch gearbox, and at first glance, that makes it very different from the 1990s supercar that bears its name.
Recently new series of Kei cars from Honda, especially the N-One, have harkened back to the classic design language. You can see it on the front ends of the otherwise boxy and unassuming 660cc powered mini-cars. But what if boxes aren’t your thing? The N-Labs S660 Neo Classic has you covered.
When Honda introduces the world’s first adventure scooter on August 30th, what they’re tentatively calling the X-ADV, it’ll be an affirmation that the best adventure vehicle is the one you’ve got—even if it happens to be a scooter. Especially if it happens to be a scooter.
My piece of crap Honda Accord, which has been ruining my life since day one, is finally sold and out of my hair. Okay, actually it’s not, because I’m a genius and sold it to my landlord. Who happens to live 50 feet away. And who can’t drive a stick.
If you’re feeling the artsy—and the old-school—vibe heading into this week, it’s only right to pass it along to as many people as you can. With a tweak to your desktop, you can do that without even having to hold a conversation. (But if a passerby wants to have one, these cars are a good place to start.)
Take a deep breath before you realize that Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 years old this year, and then let out a sigh of content when you see the cute Honda Civic adorned in a Sonic scheme for the San Diego Comic-Con. With Sonic on the back, it looks ready as ever to rev up and go for some golden rings.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t given Honda too much thought the past few years. Growing up, they were a shining beacon of quality and design. In recent years, I hardly even bother to remember them, except for when I see the occasional candy-colored Fit. This new 2016 Honda Civic Coupe, though, has woken me up to what I…
Everyone is trying to make cars that can drive themselves, but Honda and Japanese mobile carrier SoftBank want to go a lot further: they want cute emotional robot cars that talk to you about your feelings. There’s no way that could go horribly wrong, am I right?
There looks to be a new Honda coupe out testing in the wild, and the good folks at CivicX.com managed to snap a good collection of photos for the rest of us. But, while there isn’t much covering the design and this sure looks like a new Honda Civic Si coupe, the true question remains—when will America get its Type-R?
We’ve heard rumors about an NSX Type-R in the pipeline but apparently Honda/Acura is pondering even more variants of their halo car platform. Racers, convertibles(?!) really everything a kid could want.
Good Morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Simon Saunders, boss-man overlooking the ridiculous Ariel family of street-legal tubular performance machines including the Atom and Nomad, has dropped some hints about future models including luxury limousines, an electric Atom and possibly borrowing the hybrid heart of the new Acura NSX when the time is right.
Honda motorsport head Yusuke Hasegawa would like to find a second team to partner with in Formula One to better develop its power unit, but he told Autosport that no one was interested. Honda’s F1 engine has just sucked too much, too often.
