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.

2022 Honda HR-V

2022 Honda HR-V

Honda’s subcompact crossover domination is nearing the end of its life cycle before undergoing a comprehensive revamp.

The HR-V serves as the most compact and affordable crossover from Honda that is both fuel-efficient and comfortable, but it is quite old and is in desperate need of a thorough update. Although the 2022 model year remains highly unchanged, should you get one?

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?

2022 Honda Passport TrailSport

2022 Honda Passport TrailSport

A unique look and more off-road capability offered for the 2022 Passport

Back in July, 2021 Honda trademarked a new name: "TrailSport" - and everyone was asking what is the name going to be applied to. After that, at the beginning of September, 2021, we got a first teaser that revealed the answer: the TrailSport was going to be a sub-brand that will be mostly applied for SUVs and trucks. Its purpose? To "bring a more rugged design and off-road capability."

And now, we have the first look at the first model to get the TrailSport treatment: the Passport. It will go on sale in the winter of 2021 and will be "even more emotional and adventurous, further advancing Honda’s new rugged design direction for light truck lineup."

2022 Honda Civic Hatchback

The 2022 Civic hatchback debuts with two engine options and a manual gearbox amongst other interior and exterior enhancements

Honda launched the 11th gen Civic sedan not too long ago. Now, the automaker has unveiled the hatchback version of it as well. Honda revealed the 2022 Civic Hatchback at the Civic Tour “Remix” virtual concert. The hatch shares most of its traits characteristics with the sedan, but comes with a tinge of sportiness in terms of looks as well as drivability.

The 2022 Civic Hatchback is fairly loaded in terms of creature comforts and comes with the same engine options as the sedan – a 2.0-liter and 1.5-liter turbo option. To make the deal sweeter, both the mills will be available with a six-speed manual gearbox. Also, the 2022 Civic hatchback will be manufactured in the U.S. for the first time ever.

2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition - Driven

2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition - Driven

Honda’s best Civic yet is an absolute blast to drive.

The Honda Civic Type R is a very special vehicle. Many will belittle it because it is front wheel drive. Others will say that it is stupid to pay that much money for a fixed up Civic. People that say things like that are inexperienced drivers who have no idea how much fun a proper front wheel drive car can be. And if they need a badge from a high end European car to define a sports car, then they have an ego problem and they do not know anything about cars. Honda’s rich racing history is one of the most successful in recent times and products such as the Type R are a result of what their engineers learn from racing. We spent a few days with the Civic Type R and it is one of the most fun sports cars at any price. That sums it up. If you want more details, keep reading.

1995 Pininfarina Argento Vivo

Shedding light on one of the most obscure cars ever conceived

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.

2021 Honda Civic Sedan

2021 Honda Civic Sedan

A bold move from Honda

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?

You Can Now Make the Base Honda Civic Look a Lot Sportier Thanks to Mugen

When Mugen revealed its parts list for the 2020 Honda Civic Type R, it brought tons of carbon fiber, Alcantara, and some extreme exterior elements. For the most part, the same can be said for the standard Civic hatchback, but nothing is near as extreme. That is, arguably, a good thing, though, so let me explain to you what you can get for the base Civic hatch.

2021 Honda Jazz

2021 Honda Jazz

A fourth-gen subcompact from the H Badge

Honda is testing an all-new Jazz subcompact hatchback, also known as the Fit in some markets. It’s the fourth generation for the nameplate and it looks like it will retain the wedge-nosed one-box design of its predecessors, albeit with a slightly sportier design twist.

The camouflaged prototype spotted by our spies reveals quite a lot about the car, which is slated for a reveal no earlier than 2020, since the refreshed version of the current model only came out last year. Aside from the completely new and slightly more rakish-looking body, changes will be made to its powerplant lineup and interior. The hybrid version may share its powertrain with the new Insight.

Update 04/4/2019: The 2021 Honda Jazz was caught out in the wild again and, while it hasn’t dropped a lot of camo, we can make out a few subtle differences. Check out what we know in the Spy Shots section below!
