Honda has just released two new ads for the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V crossover SUV, and one of them is actually pretty decent. But not this first one: The weak link here is called “Give and Take.” For nearly sixty seconds, Honda basically just plays with the silly effects on a Macbook’s Photo Booth app, […]
Today it was announced that the 2016 Honda HR-V—the Japanese automaker’s first all-new model for the US market in years—will be priced under $20,000. The base LX model, equipped with six-speed manual transmission, has a starting MSRP of $19,115 (to get the LX with a more efficient continuously variable transmission will cost $19,915). That affordability […]
Automakers are terrified that Millennials are going to stop buying cars and just start Ubering everywhere (although they should really chill out), and it’s made them increasingly desperate to reach the younger generation. GM is probably the most egregious offender, with its hipsterish “Hidden Gems” marketing campaign for the Chevy Trax, which hired “social media influencers” […]
The 2016 Honda HR-V debuted yesterday at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, becoming the first all-new Honda model in years. Although essentially just an American version of the Japanese automaker’s Vezel, Honda’s latest offering in the entry crossover market will act as a little brother to the brand’s larger CR-V SUV. Built in the […]
Last week, we discussed the possibility of Honda’s all-new Fit-based crossover being named the Honda H-RV, as that’s what the rumor mill had been churning out. As it usually is in the automotive community, the rumor mill proved correct, as Honda officially introduced the all-new Honda HR-V at the New York International Auto Show yesterday. […]
Last year at the Detroit Auto Show, Honda unveiled the Urban SUV concept, a Fit-based crossover that sits below the CR-V in both size and price. More recently, the Japanese production version was uncovered at the 2014 Tokyo Motor Show and bore the name Vezel. That’s all well and good, but what American drivers want […]
Word on the street is that the Honda Vezel, the automaker’s compact SUV model sold exclusively in Japan, is coming to America. Not unlike Prince Akeem Joffer of Zamunda, the production version of Honda’s Urban SUV Concept will pass itself off under a different identity once it comes stateside. AutoGuide.com is reporting that Honda has […]
Honda didn’t just bring sales back into the positives in September. It shattered its 2019 performance. How about that?
For the 2021 model year, the Mazda CX-30 brings a few innovations. This subcompact SUV now comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. On top of that, you can now opt for a 2.5-liter turbocharged gas engine that gives the CX-30 a much-appreciated boost of power. The 2021 Mazda CX-30 is available […]
Honda Sensing is a suite of five different safety and driver-assistive features that includes. This is how they work.
If you live in a city, you need a vehicle that can handle small parking spots, tight turns, and narrow alleys. Many city drivers stick with small cars for these reasons, but as the market changes, there is more choice in the crossover segment for city drivers than ever before. If you’re looking for a […]
Whenever the COVID-19 pandemic passes and it’s okay to go out and buy a car again, you should take a look at the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid, as it has just been named the “Best New Car for 2020” by Autotrader. Launched at the start of the month, the CR-V Hybrid is Honda’s contribution to […]
American Honda has announced a new February sales records, with both cars and trucks surging over the 29-day month. The company sold 120,006 vehicles in February, up 4.2 percent overall, with trucks gaining 6 percent and cars gaining 2 percent. Even accounting for leap year, that’s still an impressive performance from the Japanese automaker. Honda-badged […]
Will 2020 be yet another record year for crossovers, SUVs, and pickup trucks? One month in, the numbers are looking good — at least for American Honda. The Japanese brand’s North American division reported a new January sales record for its light trucks: 52,800 deliveries were made, up 2.3 percent from last year. There’s a […]
Honda light truck sales in America soared to record heights in 2019 as American Honda also reported an overall 0.2 percent increase in total sales for the year — a surprising if somewhat impressive gain considering the rest of the industry declined over the same period. Honda did report fewer sales in December, in keeping […]
American Honda set a new November sales record for both total vehicles and truck, with delivers up 11.1 and 18.2 percent, respectively. Following mostly declining industry sales throughout the year, it’s a surprise to see such a positive upward tick, though Honda had been defying industry trends for the past few months. With double-digit increases […]
