2014 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Oct 01, 2014 - 12:35 PM - by


Kicking off the auto show season, the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the public next week, but AutoGuide's team of reporters will get you inside early with three days of coverage from the City of Lights.

And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.

Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.

A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.

And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.

Coverage runs October 1st to 3rd and, as always, includes the best auto show video coverage out there.

2015 Honda CR-V Gets New Look, Premium Trim
Sep 30, 2014 - 3:53 PM - by

While it is a sales leader in the compact crossover segment, we’ve always noted that the CR-V is a bit dull to drive and sit in, but for 2015, Honda is looking to change that impression with a more premium model.

The 2015 Honda CR-V gets a number of improvements, including a brand new direct injected 2.4-liter four-cylinder Earth Dreams engine that makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. That’s marks an impressive increase of 11 percent more torque. Along with the new engine is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which helps front-wheel drive models earn 27 MPG city, 34 MPG highway and 29 MPG combined, while all-wheel drive models earn 26 MPG city, 33 MPG highway and 28 MPG combined.

The CR-V refresh comes with a number of new features as well, like a new center console, rear air ducts and sliding sunvisors. EX models also get Honda’s Lane Watch camera.

The new engine and transmission is standard across the entire model lineup. Additionally even the most basic CR-V’s get updated styling inside and out. Chassis and handling improvements include a wider track and revised shock absorber tuning.

The biggest addition to the CR-V lineup is the new Touring model, that sits at the top of the range. This fully-loaded model is available with front or all-wheel drive and gets all the premium features of the EX-L models while also including safety and driver assist technology like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and forward collision warning.

The pricetag for the 2015 Honda CR-V is also updated, with basic CR-V LX models costing $24,150, or $200 more than 2014 models. The EX models start at $26,250, marking another $200 increase over 2014 models, while EX-L models start at $28,850 marking a $150 increase over last years model. Touring models start at $32,350. All-wheel drive is a $1,250 cost on all models.

Expect a review of the new CR-V very soon, as our Associate Editor Craig Cole is off driving it as we speak.

Honda Says New Civic Type R Will be its Greatest Performance Car Ever
Sep 29, 2014 - 4:07 AM - by

The 2016 Honda Civic Type R will usher in a new performance era for the brand.

The Japanese automaker has announced that it’ll be bringing a new Honda Civic Type R Concept II to this year’s Paris Motor Show wearing a bright blue finish while detailing what will be under the hood.

The 2016 Civic Type R will be powered by a 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine from the company’s Earth Dreams Technology family and will produce over 275 hp (280 PS) thanks to a turbocharger helping boost low-end power delivery. But more importantly, Honda is calling the Civic Type-R and its powerplant “is unrivalled against” all previous Type R models including the Civic, Integra, Accord and NSX.

According to the car’s chief engineer Suehiro Hasshi, the model’s appeal will be far greater than just a new high-performance engine lurking under the hood. The 2016 Civic Type R boasts numerous engineering innovations and enhancements that will make it a “true driver’s car, worthy of wearing the famous red ‘H’ badge.”

The company also revealed that the Civic Type R will feature a +R button, similar to the BMW’s M button. Once activated, the +R mode will heighten engine response while torque-mapping will be changed to a more aggressive and performance-focused setting. In addition, steering will become more responsive and along with the Adaptive Damping System, the Civic Type R transforms to offer the ultimate handling experience.

“In default standard mode, the Civic Type R is exceptionally agile, an everyday sports car with an enjoyable and fluid acceleration,” said Hasshi. “The ’+R’ button brings out a more dynamic and athletic car for the driver, to set pulses racing. The difference in character is immense. The ‘+R’ mode is extreme; the car is ideal for track use and will be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast.”

The all-new Civic Type R has been developed and engineered for European driving tastes and will go on sale in Europe. No word yet if it’ll be heading to the U.S.

AutoGuide Under $30k Performance Car Shootout – Part Two: Track Test Elimination R
Aug 26, 2014 - 9:02 AM - by

Yesterday we took eight fun-to-drive performance vehicles under $30,000 and put them through their paces on the street.

After much deliberation, we chose the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST as the king of the street. Despite a somewhat harsh ride, nothing else matches the raw, hilariously fun driving experience behind the wheel.

But now it’s time to get serious. We have come to the test track to complete the second half of our under $30,000 shootout. Every car will be taken around the track and scored on two criteria only; how fast it completes a lap and how fun it is when driven at the limit. That score, combined with yesterday’s street score is used to determine the final finishing order.

To keep things interesting, this is an elimination round, as we compile the data the track and the street to determine which cars are headed home, and which will move on to the top three.

Tomorrow we’ll unveil the overall winner of the Under $30,000 Performance Car
