Watch A Honda Civic Si Take On An Eerily-Similar Spec’d Hyundai Elantra N-Line

The Civic Si and the Elantra N-Line have similar power outputs and curb weight, but there is one key difference…

When it comes to drag race preferences, there are two trains of thought. Some of us like seeing supercars go for the kill on the drag strip, and some of us prefer mass-market cars to go up against each other. The latter seems more realistic because most of us can actually relate to it. Sam from Sam CarLegion has conducted many drag races that include the ‘regular’ cars like the Ford Mustang, the Volkswagen Jetta, the Honda Accord, the Ford Fusion, etc. This time he brought a Honda Civic Si and a Hyundai Elantra N-Line to the fore for another exciting race. Which of these do you think will win?

2022 Honda Civic Si

2022 Honda Civic Si

The sweet spot between performance and daily driving characteristics, for just $27,300

When the 11th-generation Civic arrived with refreshed looks and features, the return of the Civic Si was inevitable. So, here it is - the new 2022 Honda Civic Si, which is mechanically the same Civic Si from the year 2020, with some minor differences. The beating heart remains the same 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four from yesteryear, but now produces five horsepower less. The torque remains the same at 192 pound-feet, and so do the front-wheel-drive system, and the six-speed manual transmission. The exterior and interior, both, got a revamp with more modern touches. We know, a lot of you guys did not like the exterior styling of the new-generation Civic, but the Si, with its 18-inch matte black wheels and bigger brakes, makes the overall look a lot sportier than it really is. As a performance-oriented compact sedan, it comes with a limited-slip differential, a rev-matching system, sports suspension, bucket seats with additional bolstering, and optional summer tires. It also benefits from all the advanced driver aids available across the whole Civic range, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, driver attention warning, and blindspot monitoring. While it is not the best in class, is it better than the last generation? We are here to find it out for you, even compare it with the likes of the Volkswagen Jetta GLI, and the Hyundai Elantra N-Line.

2022 Honda CR-V

2022 Honda CR-V

Want a reliable family SUV? The CR-V might be the one you are looking for

Being Honda’s bestseller in the compact SUV segment, the CR-V is an impressive option despite being five years old now. While the contenders are now more powerful, smarter, better-looking, and up engaging to drive, the CR-V does all of it with an old vibe to it. It still gets a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-pot, which has the power to push you through traffic. It has a nice and spacious cabin which your family will enjoy while cruising for hours on the highway. Not only that, but it is quite frugal too, especially with the hybrid variants. When the competition has the Volkswagen Tiguan, Toyota RAV4, and Hyundai Tucson, the CR-V seems to be the least flashy SUV. But newer tech and features such as the advanced driver assistance features, up-to-date interior features, all are present to catch up well with the contenders. But is it enough? Should you consider buying one for yourself? This is a TopSpeed full review of the 2022 Honda CR-V, and we will get to everything you need to know about this compact SUV.

2022 Honda Accord Hybrid

2022 Honda Accord Hybrid

If cheap and efficient drives are what you care for, then the Accord Hybrid might just sweep you off your feet

Practical mid-size sedans are pretty popular in the country, and the Accord has been here for generations, retaining what a good all-rounder sedan can do better than an average compact crossover. Now that its latest iteration stands four years from its introduction, Honda is trying to improve its budget sedan by offering a bit more each year so that you won’t complain about its aging design. The Accord Hybrid is an impressive car in its segment, and it goes up against the likes of the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Let us remind you that neither of the two competitors of the Accord Hybrid are weak. But, more on that later. The Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter engine which is mated to dual self-charging electric motors, and when combined, the power output is 212 horsepower. It is a powerful alternative, of course, but it is efficient too. So, you might be thinking the Accord Hybrid is done for the day, right? Absolutely not. It offers great ride quality, has loads of driver assistance features by default, a spacious cabin, and a lot more, for the asking price of $27,320. So, should you buy the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid? It is a yes from us, but read the review for a more vivid picture of this attractive budget hybrid sedan.

Watch A Tuned Civic Grow A Pair And Take On Its Cousin, The Acura TLX Type S, In A Drag Race

Despite the tune-up, the Civic doesn’t make as much power as the TLX, but it is much lighter

The Acura TLX is an underrated sedan that excels in almost all departments, especially the driving dynamics. Add the Type S masala to it and you have yourself a sporty sedan that offers a decent luxury cred as well. Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ brought an Acura TLX Type S to the drag strip to take on a Honda Civic Touring. It doesn’t seem too fair, does it? But, this isn’t a stock Civic. It’s been tuned to put out 120 horses more than what it comes with. It’s still a lot less than what the TLX churns out, but the Civic is over 1,000 pounds lighter, too. The Civic enters this race as an underdog, but do you think it can trump its more powerful cousin?

Unibody Trucks - the Ultimate Guide

Unibody Trucks - the Ultimate Guide

Unibody trucks aren’t very popular, but they do offer some benefits over their traditional body-on-frame counterparts

Pickup trucks have been the best sellers in the U.S. for a very long time. In fact, in 2021, the top-three selling vehicles were the Ford F-Series, the Ram pickup, and the Chevy Silverado. This should give you an idea as to how popular pickup trucks are Stateside. While these utility vehicles are getting better in terms of looks, features, and overall premium vibes, they still don’t offer the best ride quality or good fuel economy. But, there is a solution for this – unibody trucks.

Unibody trucks aren’t considered real trucks by a lot of people, mainly because they can’t be taken on any path and can’t tow as much as a traditional body-on-frame truck. However, unibody pickups offer crossover-like handling, ride quality, and fuel efficiency, thus giving you a sweet mix of both worlds. There aren’t a lot of unibody trucks on sale today, but we’ve listed them out here. Before we start with it, let’s get to some basic questions and answers about unibody trucks and designs.

Watch A FWD Honda Civic With A CVT Turn The Tables On An All-Wheel-Drive BMW 330i

Watch A FWD Honda Civic With A CVT Turn The Tables On An All-Wheel-Drive BMW 330i

There’s a catch, though – the Civic is the Hulk and not Bruce Banner

Sam uploaded another fun drag race video on his YouTube channel, Sam CarLegion, this time involving a BMW 330i and a tuned Honda Civic. Well, even the 330i is slightly tuned, but not as much as the Civic. The two cars have quite a lot of differences. The Civic is mated to a CVT that powers the front wheels, whereas the BMW features an eight-cog automatic with an all-wheel-drive system. The BMW is almost 500 heavier as well. While the Civic makes 25 more horses than the Bimmer, the latter makes 60 pound-feet of torque more. But, in the end, none of it mattered because a budget family sedan on steroids beats a marque German car! How about that!

The Honda Accord couldn’t do much other than stare at the Fusion’s taillight every single time

Remember how the Ford Fusion Sport obliterated the Mustang on the drag strip? Well, it is now back to Sam CarLegion’s channel for a drag race against a Honda Accord.

2022 Honda Accord

2022 Honda Accord

The Accord is Honda’s answer to the Camry in ways that might make you consider it, plus it is well equipped for $26,120.

After the heavy set of upgrades that came with the 2021 model year, the 2022 Accord remains just as exciting as it was. Being a paradigm of the mid-size sedan market, Honda has been reliable and faithful to its consumers and the 10th-generation Accord proves it, but even with a facelift in 2021, the Accord is now four years old, so is it worth buying today or should you hold out for the 11th-gen model?

There Was a Time When Mercedes Built Hondas in an Unexpected Collaboration

There Was a Time When Mercedes Built Hondas in an Unexpected Collaboration

In the 1980s, Honda wanted to build Cars in South Africa. Mercedes happily obliged.

The automotive industry has seen many collaborations between carmakers, especially in recent years, when cost-cutting seems to be the name of the game. However, some collaborations you just wouldn’t expect. When to Mercedes, it was Porsche who helped shove a V-8 into the W124, creating the 500E, but this time, it was Mercedes who helped another car company. That car company was Honda, who at the time was looking to establish a foothold in South Africa and, apparently, it was a win-win situation.
