2017 Honda Civic Si Making A Debut Via YouTube? Accidental Or Planned?

#Honda #HondaCivicSi – 2017 Honda Civic Si Making A Debut Via YouTube? Accidental Or Planned? : Honda has just announced the debut of the all-new 2017 Honda Civic Si. The latest flagship will be introduced tomorrow, Thursday, April 6. Apparently, the debut will transpire via YouTube. Was it accidental or planned?

The upcoming 2017 Honda Civic Si has been confirmed to make its debut tomorrow. Honda made the announcement through its official Twitter account revealing the April 6 launch.

 

Interestingly, Honda’s announcement came out a week after an alleged specs for the 2017 Honda Civic Si circulated on the web. As we have reported last week, an email update from Honda was received by a certain Rickyg0731, who claims to have received the details of torque for the new Civic Si.

CivicX.com posted the statement of Rickyg0731 stating the details of the email from Honda. According to the latter, the email specified that the upcoming 2017 Honda Civic Si will have a turbocharged engine that can deliver 192 lb-ft of torque.

Following this email leak, Honda made an official announcement that they are now ready to reveal the specs of the upcoming Civic Si. It can also be noted that the new Civic Si is also highly anticipated to come out in the upcoming New York Auto Show, which is set next week, from April 14 to 23.

Did Honda suddenly plan to introduce the new Civic Si prior to the huge auto show in New York? Why is the automaker making an exclusive debut for the new model? Do the leaked specs preempt the debut?

Furthermore, reports also mentioned that the upcoming April 6 debut will happen through a video to be posted on the official Youtube account of Honda. It is quite intriguing to note that the debut will transpire via video clip and not through the usual grand launch on an auto show.

Whatever the reasons may be, sure the automaker has prepared something that is expected to make a greater impact through the YouTube launch. Check out this YouTube link tomorrow, April 6, to witness the debut of the 2017 Honda Civic Si.

2018 Honda Accord To Debut With Revolutionary Steering

#Honda #HondaAccord – 2018 Honda Accord To Debut With Revolutionary Steering : A couple of months ago, Honda revealed that they are hastening the development of the next-gen Accord and this is because of the tenth-generation Civic.

The latter came out 2 years ago and it became an instant success due to having the best balance in power and fuel economy. The Civic’s attractiveness has got many adopting the car instead of the Accord thus explaining why Honda is desperate for a new-generation model.

Well, Honda teased yesterday that the next-gen Accord will be coming out later this year and one of the new things that will feature on the car is a highly-sophisticated steering wheel.

As how you can see in the video above, the steering wheel is filled with emoticons. Pressing on them will allow the Accord to create a unique sound that will alert other drivers based on the emotion selected.

But before you get overexcited for the feature, you should know that the entire content above is nothing more than a prank being played by Honda. We fell for it the first time as we forgot it was April Fool’s day. Sorry to get you involved.

Is a Sauber-Honda F1 Team Coming in April?

#Honda #F1 #SauberF1 – Is a Sauber-Honda F1 Team Coming in April? : The Sauber F1 team could be announcing a change to Honda engines next month. Currently, the team is using 2016-spec Ferrari engines because of budgetary constraints.

According to F1-life.net via The Drive, the Melbourne team will be announcing a change to Honda engines in April. The team stretched its cast limit so much so that it would have been forced to withdraw from the sport. Luckily, the team finished ahead of Manor F1 at the 2016 Brazilian Grand Prix. The prize pool was able to keep them on the grid.

Sauber was forced to cut a deal with Ferrari for their outdated 2016 engines. This came at a huge discount, similar to how Scuderia Toro Rosso used Ferrari’s 2015 engines for last season. However, considering the new 2017 rules, the use of older engines was too much of a handicap. Any chance to upgrade to a current spec engine is thus very welcome for the team.

Honda is Sauber’s chance to remain relevant this season. It was already previously confirmed by the team’s chief, Monisha Kaltenborn, that the Melbourne team is considering Honda and Mercedes as top alternatives for 2018 engine options.

McLaren also uses Honda engines and they have suffered since the start in 2015. Apparently, Honda promised them the world and only showed up with a globe. The Japanese automaker cannot be blamed for the bad situation because they do not get enough data compared to other engine suppliers.

If the Sauber F1 team will use Honda engines, they now have more access to more data. The new development program hopes to progress faster than before and deliver. This year could also be a make-or-break deal for the McLaren-Honda F1 pairing.

In another report by Sky Sports, Honda remains tight-lipped on the issue. The Japanese automaker acknowledged that they already have a responsibility to provide engines for more than one team. However, the car maker declined to comment on the report.

The Sauber F1 team need to work hard this season. However, with a newer engine, hopefully, they will do better. Will the Sauber-Honda team come true next year? That remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more Formula 1 news.

I think it had over 10,000 individual visitors in one week, which actually superseded any other model we’ve had.” He further added, “All we had there was some pre-registration information and a lot of our dealers are holding orders, and of course we haven’t given them any indication on price or anything yet, but it think it shows the ground swell of people who had a historical interest in the car and an interest in this car coming.”

The Honda Civic Type R is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged iVTEC 4-cylinder engine that can produce 306 horsepower at 6,500rpm and 295 pound-feet of torque at a maximum of 4,500rpm. There are no details as to how much the vehicle will exactly cost. Collins has mentioned that it will be priced in a manner that will generate a lot of buzz for the Japanese brand in the market.

“Certainly wherever we can add more sportiness to our range we would do that. In the short term its Type R and NSX, but even if we can add more sportiness – like the RS Civic is an example of that – you know it’s not an out-and-out sports car but we are trying to add more sportiness. And wherever those opportunities arise, we will certainly chase them,” the Honda Australia executive said.

2018 Honda Odyssey: You Can’t Have Everything

#Honda #HondaOdyssey – 2018 Honda Odyssey: You Can’t Have Everything : The latest Honda Odyssey made it’s very first official appearance at the Detroit Auto show a couple of weeks back. This model was nothing short of impressive with its new features like the slideable seats, apps giving control of their experience for each family member and the 10-speed transmission.

But, it looks like Honda had left out the all-wheel drive setup from the 2018 Odyssey, on purpose. This caused quite a buzz as the Odyssey rides on the same Honda light-truck platform as the Pilot and Ridgeline and the latter two has the AWD as an option.

It becomes even odder when you take into account that the Odyssey’s rival, the Toyota Sienna, sells about 15 percent of its models with the AWD setup. Plus, this model has remained as the best seller in 2015 and 2016.

This does not seem to bother Honda – John Mendel, executive VP of Honda, said that an AWD is not really a good feature for the Odyssey as that will require them to “raise the vehicle and we’re going to compromise on the interior. We really don’t want to do that.”

The automaker wants to focus on its flexible setup inside the model, instead. This compromises of various configurations of the middle seats and gives it an advantage over the Stow ‘n Go seats in the Chrysler Pacifica.

Mendel added that those who are dying for the AWD can resort to the Pilot.

Well, do you think it’ll be worth it to compromise on the interior just for an AWD setup?
