The number of new cars you can buy with a manual in the United States dwindles by the year, but, thankfully, Honda has kept a manual-only option in the new 2017 Honda Civic Si models. And they are very reasonably priced, too. Fun doesn’t always have to be expensive, friends.
If you just hotted up your Civic with a giant turbo and intercooler, you’re going to be tempted to take the little VTEC monster to the dyno to see what you’ve gained. Before you do that, though, for god’s sake: don’t forget to tighten your damn lug nuts.
If you were disappointed that the all-new Civic Si makes the same power as the previous generation car, your best bet might be to get the cheaper Civic Turbo and slap on a Hondata tune. Here comes the 214 horsepower and 220 lb-ft of torque you deserve.
Look, I totally get the message Honda is trying to convey in this commercial. But it’s just not landing. Not at all. In fact, I’m actually very pissed off right now because I’ve watched this commercial.
Honda’s all new Civic lineup is a refreshing return to form of the Hondas that many of us knew and loved before the brand shifted focus to boring crossovers. For those that find the Type R to be a bit much, the next Civic Si should be just right.
Look at this cow. Why did you put it in the back of a Honda Civic’s cabin, wedged between the seat near a piece of fruit and an old black shoe? It doesn’t look comfortable. It looks smushed. How did you do it?
It finally happened and I’m so glad it did. A day after Australian Improved Production Car Championship racer Jordan Cox became internet famous for his antics duking it out with a Toyota AE86 in his Honda Civic, he got the Initial D treatment we were all thinking about.
How many American enthusiasts grew up dreaming of the Honda Civic Type R? Picking it in Gran Turismo, reading about it in car magazines, trying to tune their own Civics into something that approximated its legend. In just a few short months it will be forbidden no more. Meet the 2018 Honda Civic Type R in production…
War. Diminishing natural resources. Distrust of our most cherished institutions—and each other. Disappointing launch titles for new video game systems. My friends, we find ourselves in dark times. We look everywhere for answers and find none. The time is ripe for a hero to rise and give the people the hope they crave.
Man, forget NASCAR and its participation trophy stage racing. Forget Formula One and how even the drivers don’t give a shit this year. The only racing I want to watch is Australia’s Improved Production Car Championship, and this wacky Honda Civic vs. Toyota AE86 battle is the best thing I’ve seen on track in forever.
This latest tenth-generation Honda Civic is a completely different animal than the Civics we’ve become used to throughout its 44-year run. This new one, introduced last year, is considerably larger, heavier, more complicated and refined. However, I reckon this is actually a return to form for Honda’s compact car. And…
Safety I do not desire. Mileage is my master. Where then, I ask, where have all the horrible hoopties gone?
It’s cheap. It will last forever. It’s reasonably fun to wring out. It’s modular in design, with shocking levels of room for all your stuff. It gets great fuel economy. Is the mid-1990s Honda Civic hatch the only car you’ll ever need? The case could be made.
The first-generations of the Mazda RX-7 and Honda Civic are among the most important cars in Japanese automotive history. But when you buy a $1,500 beat-to-hell, 30+ year-old example of each of those cars, other adjectives start to surface.
Thirty-seven years ago today, Honda brought to us a great and long, and woody, addition the Civic family with the 1980 Civic Country. With its extended hatch and its rolling rows of red, almost four decades later and it would still look perfect on the farm or the ranch.
The most hotly anticipated Japanese hot-hatch, the new Honda Civic Type R, is the car that we all hope will be the answer to our enthusiast prayers. A huge wing. Awesome, puffed up Japanese looks. Coming to America! And now we’re hearing that it will also get a CVT option. Wait, what? What? (Update: It seems we jumped…
Uber’s had its fair share of high-profile driver crimes over the years, and this weekend added one more to that ignominious list: an Uber driver in Michigan stabbed his passenger multiple times early Saturday because he felt his vehicle was “disrespected,” police officials say.
Having owned three different generations of the Honda Civic Si, two S2000s, and one Integra Type-R, you could say I have some passion for Honda’s cars. Like everyone with a pulse and a passion for cars, I was bummed Honda didn’t ship the Civic Type-R stateside, and always wanted to drive one. Each Gran Turismo version…
