The all-new 2018 Honda Accord was named the Overall Best Buy of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book (KBB) as Honda vehicles took top honors in 7 of twelve 'Best Buy' award categories. The all-new Accord bested every other new vehicle in the market because, according to the expert team of editors and evaluators at KBB, "it outclasses the competition in almost every meaningful measure. It also sells for far less than the average new car while providing more features, better fuel economy and a more proven reputation for quality and reliability."
Honda led the industry with seven 2018 Best Buy winners including:
Just in time for the holidays, the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid will go on sale December 1, 2017 at dealerships nationwide. The midsize plug-in hybrid starts at a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,400 with highly equipped standard equipment and is offered with a Touring trim for $36,600.1
"The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid takes a big step forward in bringing Honda electrified vehicles into the mainstream with no compromise to performance, range or comfort," said Ray Mikiciuk, assistant vice president of Honda Automobile Sales. "The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid leads the pack with the highest all-electric range rating of any plug-in hybrid sedan and the most comprehensive standard equipment, spacious five-passenger cabin and a roomy trunk – all at an affordable price point."
One could look at the 2018 Honda Civic Type R and immediately criticize it for having front-wheel drive, particularly since many of its rivals are all-wheel drive.
However, simply dismissing the Type R based on its front-wheel drive layout would be short-sighted. It still provides incredible driving thrills, performance and with the right driver behind the wheel, could keep up with rear-wheel drive supercars along a mountain road.
Even though the new Honda Civic Type R holds the front-wheel drive production car record at the Nurburgring, owners shouldn’t expect to match the car’s 7 min 43.8 sec lap just by jumping behind the wheel.
Nevertheless, French car magazine L'Argus recently took to the iconic German circuit and performed an extremely impressive lap, tackling the track’s most difficult sections with poise and control.
Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, many of Japan’s leading automakers built world-beating sports cars that were exceptionally fast, bewilderingly agile and in many ways, ahead of their European and American rivals.
Of all the iconic Japanese sports cars of the time, the first-generation Honda NSX, FD Mazda RX-7 and A80 Toyota Supra are among the most beloved. One fortunate YouTuber had the chance to jump behind the wheel of all three.
These days, the market is filled with all sorts of compact hatchbacks, including the (worldwide) popular Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus .
But what if you wanted to step out of their shadow and go for something different, yet still affordable? Well, then you will have to check out other brands, and in this case, they include Honda, Chevrolet, and Mazda.
As you’d hope of a compact Honda sports car, the Honda Sports Vision Gran Turismo is seriously light and seriously powerful. Thanks to the extensive use of carbon-fibre, it tips the scales at 899kg.
Honda UK and Mission Motorsport created the world's first ever CR-V diesel race car, set to compete in the Race of Remembrance at Anglesey circuit in Wales.
The team used a CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC AWD EX model as the foundation for this project, removing everything inside except for the dashboard, while adding a bespoke roll cage, racing seats and harnesses.
Honda has announced it cannot afford to pay a ten percent tariff on British-built cars if the United Kingdom returns to World Trade Organization rules when the country leaves the European Union in 2019.
In a document submitted to the parliament's business committee, Honda said “A 10 percent tariff would make our vehicles uncompetitive and would impose costs we cannot afford to absorb."
The Honda Sports Vision Gran Turismo has officially been launched, allowing Gran Turismo Sport players to drive the car in-game.
The Honda Sports Vision GT sent the car world into a frenzy prior to its debut. After Honda patents revealed the design, many thought a so-called ‘Baby NSX’ could be on the way, serving as a spiritual successor to the Honda S2000. It turns out it was just a design for Gran Turismo’s ongoing ‘Vision GT’ program, and now the car has made its official debut.
What will a café racer bike of the future look like? Here's Honda's thoughts on the matter, showcased by its new CB4 Interceptor bike concept at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.
The black – or 'Total Black' as Honda puts it – concept bike is the work of Honda's research and development department in Rome, and It continues in similar vein as the 'Neo Sports Café' styled CB4 Concept displayed at EICMA 2015, but according to Honda the Interceptor takes a direction towards what it calls Sport Endurance. Under all this buzzword bombardment lies the newly introduced CB1000R; the CB4 Concept two years ago foreshadowed the new CB1000R, but was based on the CB650F instead.
