The 2014 Honda Pilot has a lot going for it, and buyers will be wise to open a space in their minds to this midsized SUV .

Here’s the thing: the Pilot may be classified as such, but really there are hints of full-sized characteristics in this baby. Start with the interior, which has ample enough space to comfortably fit up to eight passengers. That’s full-sized right there. Also factor in the typical Honda stamp of reliability and fuel efficiency, which, again, is a star on the Pilot’s windshield.

It’s hard to find a whole lot of things to be wary of on the Pilot. But if there is one, you have to look outside where the Pilot isn’t exactly lighting the world on fire with its aesthetics. Sure, the dimensions are right, and it does have nice maneuverability, but the fascia looks totally boring.

Still and all, buyers who have to think of family trips on their next SUV purchase would be wise to consider the Pilot, snoozy looks notwithstanding.

The Honda Crosstour suffers from a little bit of an identity crisis. Is it a wagon or is it a crossover ? Honda classifies it as the latter, though, so that’s good enough for us.

In some ways, the Crosstour has the qualities of both car types yet it still behooves us to watch Honda peddle the vehicle when it already has a full lineup of models that customers to choose from.

But hey, give credit to the Japanese carmaker for venturing into the road less travelled. The Crosstour really is on a unique platform and to be fair to it, the vehicle does have some impressive qualities about it that should make for an intriguing purchase, even if you have to compromise on some things to make way for other things.

It’s confusing, we know, but then again, isn’t that the state of mind the Crosstour will leave you in?

The Honda Civic Type R is one of those cars that can be painful to talk about. As the last bastion of true Honda Performance, the Type R makes every enthusiast drool and dream. But like so many Japanese rockets, the Civic Type R has never been a U.S. import.

Now with the Geneva Motor Show coming up next month, Honda has seen fit to tease us with more forbidden fruit; the concept model for the new Civic Type R .

All we have currently is this artist’s concept drawing which is far more aggressive and interesting than we ever imagined a Civic could be. The entire car looks like it was designed to be racecar , and then someone stripped off the sponsorship stickers.

Massive tires, extreme aero pieces and a full body kit are all part of the new Type R design.

We told you that Honda and Forza Motorsports had teamed up to create a unique car based on a design that was submitted in the game, and now we have seen the fruits of their labor. The winning entry for the Forza Motorsport Civic Si Design Contest has been built and was displayed at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show last week. This represents one of the first times that Forza has ever created a real car based on an in-game design.

The winning design was created by Tiffany Labedez from Phoenix, Arizona and features a fairly striking black on red color scheme. Both the hood and the trunk lid are painted black, and the underside of the spoiler is also black, but the outside is red. It’s a cool effect.

There is a trio i-VTEC logos down each side as well as a collection of graphics that include flames, mud splatters and tire tread. It sounds busy, but somehow it works.

If you are the proud owner of an Xbox One and Forza Motorsports 5 , you can grab the free Honda Legends Car Pack today. The pack features the new 2014 Civic Si Coupe as well as the Mugen-tuned 1984 Honda CRX and the 1994 Prelude.

Honda has graced the world with a new concept car — the Vision XS-1 — and it is actually pretty cool. If you were to imagine a futuristic Honda Fit with a lift kit, and a Hot Wheels shade of electric blue, you’d be getting close to what this concept looks like.

The Vision XS-1 concept features a compact exterior footprint to make it easy to maneuver in packed cities, but it has an increased ride height to give it that SUV look. Despite its relatively tiny size, Honda says the Vision XS-1 has room for up to 7 people.

The entire concept is built around Honda’s man maximum, machine minimum M/M design philosophy. The idea is to create something that is human centered, and designed to get the machines out of the way of the experience.

Honda has said that this India reveal is a concept only, but we have our doubts about that.

Read on to find out more about this new ambitious concept.

It has become abundantly obvious to the majority of the world that we are running out of oil, and by proxy, out of gasoline. With every automaker scrambling to find a way to get cleaner and greener cars, the are surprisingly few marques trying to perfect the art of alternative fuels.

Honda is on the cutting edge of alternative propulsion. Cars like the FCX Clarity prove that Honda has that ability, guts and know how to produce and sell a production version of a hydrogen-powered vehicle.

Honda is taking that same drive and innovation to its Civic line, and now you can purchase a new 2014 Honda Civic Natural Gas. With an updated exterior, and better nationwide availability, the Civic Natural Gas is proving that you don’t necessarily need gasoline to get your motor running.

The Honda Civic is a perennial favorite among buyers and auto writers. With consistently great build quality, competent handling and bullet-proof reliability, it is hard to beat. Honda had a slight hiccup with the 2012 model, but it revised everything again for the 2013 standard sedans .

Now that we have hit 2014 and the Chicago Auto Show , Honda has decided to updates all its coupes and special models. That means we have a brand-new Civic Hybrid to talk about.

The 2014 Hybrid gets the freshly upgraded exterior styling of its sedan siblings, and it gets even better fuel economy than last year as well. It even gets enhanced interior amenities with a new stereo, and the safety equipment has been improved as well.

Super Bowl XLVIII ended with tears for some fans and with joy for others, and the tears were especially salty, considering the huge difference in score, as the Sehawks gave the Broncos quite a whooping 43-8. On a good note, at least there were some cool car commercials to enjoy during this total blowout.

Just like with the game, we had some winners and some looser. Commercials like Budweiser’s "Puppy Love" Jerry Seinfeld’s Reunion/Crackle received rave reviews and millions of views online, but we’re more interested in what happened in the automotive section.

Many consider Audi hit a home run with its "Doberhuahua" commercial, while Maserati ’s "Strike" or Chevrolet’s "Romance" were total failures, but what do you think? In your opinion, which ad was the best this year?

In my humble opinion, I found Volkswagen’s "Wings" the funniest one of the year. As for the stinker of the year, I have to vote for Chevrolet’s "Romance" ad, as it seemed nearly pointless.

We know about real-life cars being cars being rendered into the virtual world, but Honda and Turn 10 Studios are going against the grain a little. Instead of the usual process, the two companies have teamed up to bring a virtual Honda Civic SI from Forza 5 into the real world.

The car will be developed as part of the Forza Motorsport Civic Si Design Contest, a competition Honda and Turn 10 Studios created to let designers attempt to design the best Civic SI. The competition was eventually won by Tiffany Labedz.

We don’t know who she is exactly, but still, congratulations on a job well done, madam!

As far as her design goes, Honda refused to release on the unique Civic SI, opting only to say that it beat out more than 170 other entries on its way to being chosen by the two companies. The special edition Civic SI is scheduled to be introduced at the Chicago Auto Show on February 7th as a one-off, which means that it could end up being one of the most sought after Honda Civics in recent history.

Also, FYI, the image above isn’t the competition-winning Civic SI designed by Labedz.
