Honda Sensing Safety Tech Will Be Standard on All Hondas in 2022

  Honda Sensing Safety Tech Will Be Standard on All Hondas in 2022 To date, Honda has already sold a million cars equipped with the system.Honda has announced that every new car it sells for the 2022 model year will come with its Honda Sensing suite of active safety tech as standard.

The Honda Clarity works well in electric-only mode, but its loud gas engine and quirky gear selector and dashboard controls should give shoppers pause.

In electric-power mode, the car runs quietly and smoothly, providing quick acceleration even when climbing hills. But if the driver punches the accelerator or when the vehicle switches over to gas-only because the battery is depleted, the four-cylinder engine awakens with a ruckus that’s strikingly loud. 

In our testing, the car went 48 miles on electric power, almost matching the category-leading Chevrolet Volt. The Clarity got 39 mpg overall on gas in CR tests. It has a mediocre combined range of a little more than 300 miles. (The car takes 2.5 hours on 240 volts and 12 hours on 120 volts to recharge.)

Six New Cars Come to Forza 7, Also a Honda Odyssey

  Six New Cars Come to Forza 7, Also a Honda Odyssey For that sweet simulated minivan racing action.Perhaps the weirdest car out of the seven confirmed for Forza's April car pack is a bone stock, unmodified 2018 Honda Odyssey. That's right, totally stock-no 1000-horsepower Bizimoto stuff or Honda factory racing shenanigans going on here. There's also a 2017 Maserati Levante S.

This Honda Clarity review incorporates applicable research for all models in this generation, which launched for the 2018 model year. Honda offers the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid in two main trim levels: Base and Touring. The Clarity Electric is currently available as a lease-only vehicle in California and

This four-door sedan has a comfortable ride, but handling is awkward because the body leans in corners and steering response is sluggish. It has more interior space than its rivals, but the front seat isn’t very supportive because of a short cushion and limited adjustability.

Controls are confusing, including the fussy push-button gear selector. The Clarity comes standard with forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keeping assist. It uses a distracting video feed along the passenger side instead of a more effective blind-spot warning system that covers both sides.

This Tiny Honda Hot Hatch Concept is the Definition of Forbidden Fruit

  This Tiny Honda Hot Hatch Concept is the Definition of Forbidden Fruit Who wouldn't want this baby Type R?As far as mainstream automakers go, Honda's current lineup is pretty darn fun to drive. You don't even have to spring for the Si or Type R to enjoy driving the Civic, and it's almost impossible to not have a great time behind the wheel of the 2.0-liter Accord Sport. Heck, even the Fit is pretty sporty. But despite all of that, we're still going to complain about the fact there's no chance Honda will bring this tiny hot hatch concept to the U.S.

2019 Honda Civic coupe, sedan get Sport trim, more safety features .
This Sport is less sporty than the Sport hatchThe aforementioned Sport trim is new for these bodystyles, and it echoes the current Honda Civic Sport hatchback. The chrome accents in the front fascia are gloss black on this model, and it comes with a number of other visual enhancements such as fog lights, 18-inch wheels and a geometric center exhaust inspired by the Honda Civic Si. The sedan version also gets a spoiler. Unlike the Sport hatchback, though, the coupe and sedan eschew the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder for the LX trim's naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
