3 Reasons Honda in Japan is Way Cooler
Jan 18, 2017 - 1:37 PM - by

More proof has surfaced that Honda in Japan is 100 percent cooler than Honda in North America.

The Japanese automaker has always kept its home market happy with adorable little kei cars and tiny sports cars that we North Americans have always been very vocally jealous about.

Here are three new concepts that Honda has debuted at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon that we are intrigued by.

Honda Could be Committing a Sin with the New Civic Type R
Jan 04, 2017 - 2:16 PM - by

The upcoming Honda Civic Type R will reportedly offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT) as an option.

The new comes to us from CivicX, citing a report in the November issue of CAR magazine, which includes an interview with senior Honda staff Mirsuru Kariya, Daisuke Tsutamori and Katsushi Inoue. Kariya is better known as the head engineer for the Civic line, while Tsutamori assumes the role of head designer. Inoue is the head of Honda in Europe, so the report seems to have credible sources.

In the interview, the three discuss some details on the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, which is heading to North America for the first time. Some things that have been confirmed is a limited-slip differential, a lower center of gravity compared to the standard Civic, and it will come in front-wheel drive only.

But most surprising is that accompanying the six-speed manual transmission will be a CVT that is said to be optimized for low-end acceleration.

Some may feel disappointed that Honda is opting for a CVT instead of a dual-cutch unit for its Type R, but CVT technology has come a long way and we’ll have to keep an open mind to see how it performs if and when it does arrive. The Type R has traditionally been exclusively available with a manual transmission, so the fact that an automatic is even being considered is sure to be seen as sacrilegious to many automotive enthusiasts.

2017 Honda Civic Si Debuts to Hold the Flag Until Type R Gets Here
Nov 16, 2016 - 9:35 AM - by

Now that everyone has seen what the Civic Type R looks like, pretty much nothing else in the Honda universe really matters anymore.

To carry the Japanese automaker’s performance flag until the Type R gets here, which is still ways away, the 2017 Honda Civic Si just made its global debut at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show.

Looking pretty tame compared to the hyper-aggressive Type R hatch, the Si strikes a nice balance between the regular Civic and the much-anticipated hot hatch. The Si will be available as a coupe and a sedan, but a short-shifting six-speed manual transmission will be the only one available.

The 2017 Honda Civic Si will be powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which the automaker says is “high-performance” and “high-torque.” Unfortunately, Honda didn’t release any information about power output, the one thing that prospective Si drivers care most about. The last Civic Si had 205 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque, so it’s safe to assume that this upcoming model’s figures will surpass the previous generation’s numbers.

This Si Prototype has a full Honda Factory Performance (HFP) aero kit, spoiler, a slick center-mountedexhaust setup, and 19-inch, 10-spoke forged aluminum alloy wheels. Performance upgrades include a new active damper system, active steering, limited-slip differential and available high-performance tires.

Inside, the Si gets unique front sport seats with red contrast stitching that carries through the whole cabin, an aluminum shift knob and sport pedals, and a handful of other features that help differentiate the Si from the regular Civic.

Although Honda says this is just a prototype, it’s pretty safe to assume that the production model won’t stray too far from what we see here. The 2017

Honda Civic Hatch or Sedan? These 5 Things Could Help You Decide
Nov 10, 2016 - 10:09 AM - by

After more than a decade-long absence, the Honda Civic hatchback has made its triumphant return to North American shores.

With its return, the popular compact’s practicality has been ratcheted up thanks to two additional doors. You’d have to flip back through the history books about 25 years to find the last five-door Civic sold on this side of the world. But that hasn’t done anything to slow sales, with Honda’s popular compact floating near the top of the charts for decades on the back of the successful sedan.

With a pair of practical choices on the market — lest we forget the coupe — there’s surely going to be plenty of debate over which Civic is worthy of your hard-earned dollars. And that’s where this short list of the top five differences between the Civic hatch and sedan comes in, laying out, in simple terms, what each is best suited for.
