This AWD, 650HP Honda Civic Is Downright Insane
When most people think of the Honda Civic, they think of the 1990s riced-out econoboxes with fart cans and big wings that serve no function other than to look ridiculous. Not all Civics are the same, however, as those who know what they have and know how to get the most out of them turn them into extraordinary machines, capable of easily embarrassing an exotic car with a six-figure sticker price.
You Can Now Cram The Honda Civic Type R’s 306HP Engine In Just About Anything

The 2021 Tokyo Auto Salon, the year’s first major car event, is just around the corner and Honda just previewed a couple of really cool concept cars for the show. But they’re not what you’d usually expect from the Japanese carmaker. Instead of beefed-up Civics and funky kei cars, Honda created a couple of race cars based on the tiny E and N-One. To make things that much more ridiculous, the Honda E in question is a drag racer.
Honda Will Electrify Its Entire Euro Lineup in 2022 - Here’s What That Means For The Civic Type R
That car the industry is slowly but steadily shifting to electrified powertrains is not a novel trend anymore. Almost every echelon, from the budget-friendly sub-compact to the alien-looking supercar is getting either a hybrid or an out-and-out EV these days.
Honda, for example, wants to field a fully electrified lineup - made of hybrids and EVs - by 2022 in Europe, as emissions standards are becoming more and more strict. This, however, won’t affect the incoming Civic Type R, which is good. For now. At the same time, the new Type R might become the last Honda to feature a pure-gasoline powertrain.
Does The Toyota Yaris GR Even Stand A Chance Against The Honda Civic Type R On The Strip?
2020 had plenty of reasons for us to get excited and the Yaris GR is definitely one of them. Just when we thought there’s no more wiggle room in the hot hatch segment, Toyota pulls the rally-inspired Yaris GR out of the hat to every car reviewer’s delight.
The Yaris GR has been getting stellar reviews and pretty much every blogger, vlogger, and car journo is raving about Gazoo Racing’s pocket rocket. But can it face the current king of hot hatches and come out on top?
Rumor Has It That the Honda S2000 Is Coming Back
Introduced in 1999 as a lightweight roadster, the Honda S2000 quickly made a name for itself as a solid competitor for the iconic Mazda MX-5 Miata. But while its Japanese rival remained in production until today, the S2000 was discontinued in 2009 due to slow sales, and plans for a successor were scrapped due to the financial crisis. Rumors of a second-generation model have been flying around since 2015, and now it seems that Honda is moving closer to building a successor a re-enter the market against the Mazda Miata.

1995 Pininfarina Argento Vivo
The automotive world is one of enormous diversity. Quite often designers are given the green light to unleash their imagination giving us some truly amazing stuff. That said, the modern-day regulations has been cracking down harder and harder on the automotive design language, and many amazing concepts remained one-offs. Those with deep enough pockets, however, have a bit more luck than the average person. The Argento Vivo is one of those extremely rare cases where a concept car has been granted production status. Here are nine interesting facts about the unique roadster.
Honda Had a Few Tricks Up Its Sleeve When Designing The 2022 Honda Civic
Last week was a big one for Honda and its followers alike. There’s always great buzz whenever a new generation Civic is announced and Honda’s unveiling of the 2022 Civic prototype made no exception.
Now, we’ve already learned what we had to learn from the Japanese carmaker’s PR talk, but it’s time to delve deep into the 2022 Honda Civic topic with a little help from Gary Robinson, Head of Product Planning at American Honda.
The 2022 Honda Civic Has Arrived, And It Doesn’t Overcompensate

Honda just redesigned the Odyssey minivan in Japan and it comes with two cool and useful features that we wish we would get in the United States. The JDM-spec van is now available with gesture control power sliding door and reservation lock, two systems that make operating the van while having your hands full of groceries much easier.
2021 Honda Civic Sedan
Honda is known for many things. Having great racing history, making engines for land, sea, and air, as well as their reliable, economical, and cleverly-designed vehicles, like the Civic. One thing they are not associated with is sedans.
Even though they have given us fun sporty sedans, as well as comfortable luxury sedans, they don’t seem to be a part of their definitive portfolio. The new Civic is offered in both hatchback and sedan forms, and hatchbacks are generally known to be more practical, although that’s only partially true. This begs the question, does the Civic sedan have what it takes to survive the hatchback and crossover fever?
This Is Probably The Cleanest Acura NSX Type R That You’ve Ever Seen
The Honda NSX Type R was all about shedding weight. It came to serve those customers that wanted even more from the beautifully-balanced NSX with better track performance and the lack of your regular creature comforts.
Honda built just 483 units of the NSX Type R and they were all offered on the Japanese market, hence the right-hand-drive layout. The example you’re about to admire went through a restoration that not only does it a lot of justice, but also makes us forget its age.
Honda Just Gave the Ridgeline Pickup a Fighting Chance, But Is It Enough to Make It Relevant?
Honda Ridgeline is often left out when talking about trucks, but this stalwart has been around for over 15 years now. It isn’t built on a body-on-frame chassis as its rivals. However, if you’re looking for a truck that works as a good family hauler and doesn’t have a traditional truck appeal, the Ridgeline will fit your bill.
The company has now refreshed the truck for the 2021 model year, and it comes with a few changes on the outside, a refreshed interior, and a few appearance packages offered as optional gear. Things under the hood, however, remain the same. Will these cosmetic changes interest the potential compact truck customers?

What is the Sportiest Honda?
The sportiest Honda is the NSX, also known as the Acura NSX.Honda’s range spearhead uses three electric motors and an ICE (internal combustion engine) to crank out 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. Besides the spiced up powertrain, the NSX has large front and rear stabilizer bars and a performance-oriented chassis that’s benefited from Honda’s racing know-how. The internal combustion engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 mounted behind the seats. If we are to ignore the NSX, then the sportiest Honda is the Civic Type R.
What is the Most Popular Honda?

The only two models that shyly come closer to that performance are the Civic (325,760 units sold in 2018 and 377,286 units sold in 2017) and the Accord (291,071 units sold in 2018 and 322,655 units sold in 2017).
