2014 Honda Accord Awards

Just about every manufacturer has a flagship sedan in their lineup. These are the highest-profile and often highest-performance vehicles in the lineup. As expected, their high quality most often makes the flagship sedans their most expensive, prestigious and largest vehicles. For Honda, their flagship sedan is and always has been the Honda Accord.

What separates the Accord from other flagships out there is that the sedan is able to offers superior capabilities at prices that are more than affordable. While many flagships have sticker prices upwards of $50,000, the MSRP of the Accord never exceeds $35,000—even for the high-end V-6 trim which comes loaded with every available feature.

The Honda MC-beta EV is unbelievably practical, at least when it’s not raining.

Honda MC-beta Micro-Sized EV

Honda just unveiled their newest fully-electric model, and it really makes us wish that America was more susceptible to unconventional, innovative designs. The Honda MC-beta is a micro-sized EV that looks more like a glorified golf cart, but its small size makes it unbelievably practical.

Although the exact capacity of the lithium-ion battery has not been announced, Honda has said that when it’s fully charged, the MC-beta EV is capable of traveling up to 50 miles. As the EV is so compact, it receives its power from a motor rated at 6kW which has a maximum output of 11kW. It puts the top speed of the MC-beta right around 43 mph, which is more than enough for running errands or a short commute through the city. Continue reading

The 2015 Honda Civic Type R hits the manufacturer’s in-house track.

Unfortunately, it’s not likely that we will ever see a 2015 Honda Civic Type R U.S. release date but we’re hoping that could change before the new Civic Type R is released in European markets some time in 2015. We understand that we’re being a bit greedy, seeing as we haven’t even received the redesigned Civic coupe and sedans yet, but when you look at everything that this sporty car has to offer, you can understand where we’re coming from.

The Type R is set to be formally introduced at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show which begins this week, but Honda has released a few photos of the sporty looking car taking some laps around the manufacturer’s in-house test track. The shell of the Civic is still there, but the added modifications really separate the Type R from its more reserved counterpart. Continue reading

It won’t be long before we add yet another new model to our inventory. The 2014 Honda Insight release date has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited. With an MSRP starting at $18,725, the Insight is still the most affordable hybrid for sale in the states.Even the fully-loaded Insight EX complete with a navigation system has an MSRP less than $24,000, making it more affordable than many manufacturer’s base model hybrids.

As a hybrid, one of the biggest benefits of the 2014 Honda Insight is the fuel economy. The eight different trims all offer the same combined rating of 42 mpg.2 The Insight is capable of traveling 41 mpg in the city, however, where the hatchback really excels is the highway where it achieves 44 mpg—which is up there with hybrids that are more expensive.
