A look at 5 parts that could be making your car or truck thirsty
Millions of drivers waste fuel needlessly every day, without even realizing it. Whether by carrying around extra weight or running a vehicle that’s in need of maintenance, bad fuel mileage often creeps up slowly – swilling away your hard-earned money, and contributing to excessive emissions. If you don’t monitor your vehicle’s fuel consumption regularly, increased fuel consumption can be even harder to detect.
Is your ride running at maximum efficiency, or is it wasting your money and polluting needlessly? If you’re not sure, here’s a look at four parts that can be easily replaced and one that should be removed when not in use, as a starting point, to help ensure your car, SUV or pickup isn’t drinking more than its fair share of fuel.
There's more to an inexpensive car than an inexpensive price
We can name plenty of vehicles that can be bought for a song but have running costs that will drive you to the poorhouse. When looking for inexpensive wheels, you have to consider repair costs, insurance costs, fuel costs, and resale value. Let's take a look at some vehicles that can be purchased and driven without breaking the bank.
Today's new cars are better equipped than ever, with convenience, connectivity, and safety features that keep drivers safe on the road. Nonetheless, smart drivers know to hit the road prepared, regardless of how long the journey.
Consider picking these nine items up and stashing them in your glove box or trunk. They'll help you keep calm and carry on, no matter the situation.
After concepts and leaks have been teasing us for months, Honda has finally revealed the 2017 Civic Hatchback.
Those who opt for the hatchback model rather than the sedan or coupe will only have one choice in engine, a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that makes 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque in LX, EX and EX-L trims. Sport and Sport Touring versions of the car are granted extra power, up to 180 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. That power boost comes courtesy of a high-flow center-mountedexhaust.
A CVT will be hooked up to the engine as standard, though a six-speed manual will be available on LX, Sport and EX trims. Honda says the car is expected to get 31 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway for a combined 34 mpg with the CVT, putting it 1 mpg behind the Civic Coupe on the highway.
Even more performance will be on tap when the Civic Type R, which will be based on the hatchback, arrives in the U.S. in 2017.
Inside, the Civic Hatchback will be familiar to anyone who has been in a modern Civic, save for the back end. Honda says the car offers 36-inches of rear seat legroom with a total of 122.9 cubic feet ofinterior space. The brand claims to have the “largest cargo carrying capacity in the competitive set,” but Honda didn’t share any details on this.
Honda’s long list of active safety features is available on the car, including collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and more. Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also available.
The Civic Hatchback will be built at Honda’s plant in Swindon, U.K. Expect pricing released closer to the car’s release in the fall.
