2014 Civic Si Track Test - Video
Jul 18, 2014 - 1:05 PM - by

More style, better handling
by David Pratte

I’ve been a pretty harsh critic of the 9th generation Honda Civic Si.

Perhaps too harsh, but as a long-time Honda fan (I currently have three Honda products in my garage, an ’02 S2000, a ’07 Civic EX sedan, and a ’11 MDX), former President of a Honda and Acura motorsports club, and a former Canadian Touring Car Championship competitor in a Civic, my expectations for this vehicle were always going to be high.

Given my obvious desire for the new Civic Si to knock my socks off, it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that when I first tested the 2012 Civic Si at our local test track, I was pretty underwhelmed. It had a lot more body roll and understeer than I (and many other auto journalists and hardcore Honda fans) would have liked. It also played it rather safe in the styling department, failing to differentiate itself strongly enough from lower trim models, not to mention receiving some pretty harsh criticism about interior trim quality.

Acura TLX Pricing Announced
Jul 03, 2014 - 5:00 PM - by

When the Acura TLX hits dealer this August, it will do so with a base price of $31,890.

For that base price, the TLX comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine producing 206 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. To add the technology package to this car, customers will be asked to drop about $36,000.
Moving on up, the more powerful 3.5-liter V6 that makes 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque can be had for $36,115, mated to a nine-speed automatic. Add the technology package, and the price climbs to just over $40,000. Finally, those customers interested in Acura’s super-handling all-wheel drive can have the car for $42,345, or $45,595 with the tech package.

What We Know: 2015 Acura TLX Specs

Acura is also doing something special for customers who are willing to put their cash on the line before September 2, 2014, and take delivery of their car by October 31. Called the Acura Advantage, those interested in financing will be able to pay $299 a month for the 2.4-liter model and $349 a month for the 3.5-liter model for 36 months with a $2,499 down payment. The program will also benefit existing owners of Acuras, offering a $500 personalization allowance for Acura genuine accessories, which can be applied to a new TLX.
The TLX will be built in Marysville, Ohio.

2014 Honda Odyssey Review

A celebration of parenthood, a celebration of life
by Colum Wood

The average review is roughly 1,300 words. If I listed all of the things I fit in the Honda Odyssey for a weeklong trip to the in-laws, I’d have to stop writing now in order to make room.

Engine: 3.5L V6 makes 248 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque.

Transmission: Six-speed automatic

Fuel Economy: 19 MPG city, 28 MPG highway and 22 MPG combined.

Price: Starts at $28,825 and ranges to $44,450.

Reviled by young urban couples in their condos, minivans signify the soccer mom who wears yoga pants to the grocery store and who, they surmise, has given up on life.

On the contrary, the minivan is a celebration of life – a celebration of parenthood. Like no other vehicle it symbolizes a virtue, one that’s increasingly absent from modern society: selflessness. The minivan is, by its very nature, about putting the priorities of others first.
A Status Symbol to Some

And while the Honda Odyssey is all that, it is also a suburban status symbol. That may come as a shock to MINI-driving hipsters, but to parents chatting in the parking lot after dropping their kids off at school, it’s surpassed only by the likes of the Cadillac Escalade.

Can you really compare a minivan to a luxury SUV? When it costs $44,000 and comes with a built-in vacuum, you bet. And like a luxury product, moms and dads across America aspire to drive this minivan.

Honda polishes its packaging marvel
by Mike Schlee

The Honda Fit is a bit of a mystery in the automotive world. Seeming to offer everything customers could want in a sub-compact hatchback, sales of the Fit have lingered mid-pack over the years.

Engine: Power comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 130 hp and 114 lb-ft of torque.

Transmission: Six-speed manual or a CVT automatic.

Fuel Economy: 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway for the Fit LX CVT.

Price: The Fit begins at $16,315 after destination charges, while a fully loaded EX-L with navigation retails for $21,590.

With odd styling, no sedan version and a less than ideal supply chain, many factors have contributed to the Fit’s lackluster sales. Hoping to turn things around this year, Honda has completely redesigned the car from the ground up.

For its third generation, Honda has built on the Fit’s key strength of having an incredibly usable interior space for its rather diminutive size. Thanks in part to a wheelbase that grew by 1.2 inches, overall passenger volume increases by 4.9 cubic feet. Rear legroom is up by 4.8 inches, bringing the total to 39.3; a number that rivals many mid-size sedans. To gain the extra space for passengers, cargo room behind the rear seats has diminished by four cubic feet, now totaling 16.6. With the seats folded down, space shrinks as well to 52.7 cubic feet as well. That’s still a lot of space. For example, it’s slightly more spacious than the Crosstour.

2015 Civic Type R Concept: New Photos
Mar 03, 2014 - 12:10 PM - by

The Honda Type R badge has a long history, one which the Japanese brand is resurrecting at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show with the Civic Type R Concept.

This will be the first European model to receive Honda’s all-new VTEC Turbo engines from the brand’s Earth Dreams Technology range. Power comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, that is expected to make at least 280 hp with eco-friendly emissions.

Honda has already claimed that this car will crack the current record for the fastest lap around the Nürburgring by a front-wheel drive car, which currently sits at 8:07.97 held by the Renault Megane 265 Trophy.

Currently, Honda has no plans to bring this car to North America.
