2016 Honda Civic Spied Inside and Out
Jul 27, 2015 - 11:44 AM - by

A new set of 2016 Honda Civic spy photos have just rolled in, offering a glimpse at some of the car’s details.

Inside, the new Civic appears to be heavily revised, with an entirely new center stack that gets rid of the current’s cars two-display setup. Leather and carbon fiber trim can be seen in the photos, along with a button for rear seat heaters. Storage is also not in short supply, with two large bins on either side of the shifter.

Pictures from underneath the new Civic show off the updated single and dual exhaust setups, while the tires being used on these prototypes are 15/50R17s on Firestone FT140 tires, and 215/55R16s on Hankook Kinergy GT rubber. Honda’s Lanewatch system is also present, which houses a camera in the passenger side mirror that eliminates blind spots by showing you what is directly beside your car.

Up front, new LED headlights that seem to mimic what we see on the new 2016 Accord are present. They were seen on the same model with the leather and heated rear seats, likely to be the top-trim Civic.

Honda says that this new Civic will mark the return of 'fun-to-drive' to the brand’s cars. Part of this plan includes a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be available with the Civic. A new Type R model is also coming to the U.S., though it may not arrive until 2018.

New Civic Type R Specs, Photos Released
Jun 02, 2015 - 12:23 PM - by

Honda has released a fresh set of photos along with new details on the 2015 Civic Type R.

The 2015 Civic Type R signals a new era of Honda performance cars according to the brand and much has been done to separate this hot hatch from its rather pedestrian cousin. Honda has confirmed that the new Type R will be sold in the United States, though it may not happen until 2017. For now, we’ll have to make due with this new info released by Honda UK.

Under the hood lives a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 305 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The red line sits at 7,000 RPM, while Honda’s legendary Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system is also put to work, making the engine as efficient as possible while also keeping a high output of power. Direct injection atomizes the fuel at high pressure (20MPa), allowing the fuel flow to increase by 85 percent and fuel pressure to jump by 45 percent compared to a conventional Honda engine.

All of this adds up to a 0 to 62 mph run in 5.7 seconds, a top speed of 167 mph and a curb weight of 3037 lbs. To get the most from the car, Honda has included a new +R button, which modifies throttle response, the adaptive dampers, torque mapping and the interior info screen to allow the driver to extract maximum performance from the Civic Type R.

A six-speed manual, which uses the same 40mm shift stroke as the 2002 NSX-R, is the only transmission available with the new Type R. It sends power on to a helical limited slip differential, helping to improve turning performance. Without the limited slip, Honda says the car loses three seconds around the Nurburgring. A unique new exhaust is also fitted to this car, helping it to roar thanks to the removal of the front silencer.

Connecting the Type R to the road are new 19-inch alloy wheels, wrapped with 235/35 R19 tires from Continental that were designed specially for this car.

When it comes to style, the new Type R is one of the most aggressive looking Honda’s to ever wear the badge. Five paint options are available: Championship White, Crystal Black (pearlescent), Polished Metal (metallic), Brilliant Sporty Blue (metallic) and Milano Red.

A new GT pack is now available, which brings along signature red highlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, automatic wipers and adaptive cruise control. The package also

Top 10 Honda Civics of All Time
May 28, 2015 - 8:08 AM - by

The tenth-generation Honda Civic is just around the corner and it can’t come soon enough.

Many feel the current Civic has lost its edge and the new car hopes to change all that. With new-found style, substance and the addition of turbocharged engines, the next generation Civic is poised to do big things for Honda.

There’s also a good chance that the new Type R will be the best Civic ever made. With a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 305 HP, this front-wheel drive hatchback is claimed to have lapped the Nürburgring racetrack in just seven minutes and 50 seconds.

But there have been plenty of other great Civics since its birth more than four decades ago.

2016 Honda Pilot First Drive - Video
May 20, 2015 - 4:31 AM - by

By Colum Wood

The Honda Pilot has been transformed.

From a utilitarian box on wheels to a sleek near-luxury SUV the style shift is almost shocking in its departure from the past.

Pairing that dramatic redesign with a long list of upgrades, does this latest model have what it takes to put the Pilot at the helm of the 3-row crossover segment?

Bu-Bye Box

While we should keep you waiting with a line like “you’ll never guess what happens next,” the short answer is: yes.

Over the past few years utility vehicles like the boxy Ford Escape and the square Nissan Pathfinder have traded in their chiseled looks for a more curvy appearance. Now the Pilot is following that trend, and for good reason. Or should we say reasons.

First and foremost is the truck’s perception.

Honda’s market research surrounding the previous generation Pilot indicates that the two main rejection reasons for that model were styling and fuel economy. According to their research, people saw the boxy shape and assumed that it was bad on gas. This was true even when the Pilot had best-in-class fuel economy and continued to haunt it as the truck grew older and gave up that title to more modern rivals.

Of course, if you’re in the opposing camp and you did like the look of the old Pilot you can always blame Obama.

How is this Obama’s fault? Well, it’s called government mandated corporate average fuel economy standards and for Honda to hit its targets, it needs sleek aerodynamic shapes in order to eek our every last mile per gallon. Thankfully, you, the consumer, get to reap the reward.

Gone is the big boxy grille. It also looks longer and lower, because it actually is. The Pilot shaves an inch off the top and adds three inches in length overall, with roughly two inches between the wheels and an inch of extra rear overhang.

But Honda has done so much more to make the new Pilot a fuel economy leader.
