Thrill To The Weirdest Honda Ever Made!

For me, Hondas have always been the cars I was told I should buy by someone who didn't know shit about cars, when I was stuck on the side of the road, in the rain, trying to keep an SU carb from dumping fuel on an exhaust manifold. So, while I like and respect many Hondas, part of me has always found them too "safe."… » 7/16/14 10:30pm Wednesday 10:30pm

Honda's Asimo Robot Gets a Little Bit Better, a Whole Lot Creepier

It's been almost 15 years since Honda first introduced Asimo, the company's attempt to create a humanoid robot that can walk and perform other human-like tasks. But Asimo's most recent upgrade introduces something unsettling: a pair of dead black eyes and a permanent smirk that leaves the bot looking more like an… » 7/16/14 9:31am 7/16/14 9:31am

Finally! The 2015 Honda Fit Configurator is Live

I always loved the Honda Fit. There is just something endearing about the little compact; it has a JDM swagger unmatched by most cars it the class, say for maybe the Cube. You can cram a whole crap-load of stuff in the Fit and it is a hoot to drive in a classic "slow car fast" kind of way. I almost bought one, until… » 6/12/14 2:19pm 6/12/14 2:19pm

See The Evolution Of The Shitty Music At The Honda Civic Tour

We get a lot of flak at Jalopnik for sometimes ragging on Honda and Acura because their cars aren't quite as enthusiast-oriented as they were in their 1990s and early 2000s heyday.

Honda's Next S2000 Could Be A 350 Horsepower Turbo Hybrid

Okay, Honda fanboys. Prepare your jimmies, they're about to get rustled. In addition to the (supposedly) forthcoming 2015 Acura NSX and the recently greenlit Honda S660 baby roadster, Honda is reportedly preparing an S2000 successor to slot between them — but it will be radically different from the last one. » 5/12/14 4:03pm 5/12/14 4:03pm

The First Commercially Available Car Navigation System Was From 1981

The Global Positioning System constellation of satellites has been helping lost travelers find their way for a while now, but they only really started showing up in cars in the mid- to late- 1990s, and in big numbers even later than that. But the first automotive navigation system was offered over thirty years ago. » 5/11/14 12:54pm 5/11/14 12:54pm
