Redesigned 2017 Honda CR-V to Arrive This Winter

The redesigned Honda CR-V is expected to arrive at dealerships in winter and it’s sure to be something fierce. The all-new fifth-generation small SUV will boast improved fuel economy, performance, and plenty of other upgrades that set it apart from the pack. The 2017 Honda CR-V will feature a more aggressive stance, upgraded technologies, and much more.

The new Honda CR-V will boast a wider, more athletic look with LED headlights and taillights that accent the new styling. Inside, drivers can expect to see premium materials, like a soft-touch instrument panel, as well as a new infotainment system. The CR-V will also feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Honda is expecting best-in-class fuel economy ratings from both the turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. The latter engine also debuted in the new Honda Civic. Both engines will be mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission.

Since its introduction in 1997, the Honda CR-V has become the bestselling SUV in the United States with nearly four million units sold. This year, sales are up 1.5%.

It wouldn’t be wrong to expect great things from the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V.

New Honda Odyssey Changes Coming for 2017

The current 2016 Honda Odyssey.

The Honda Odyssey is one of the most beloved minivans on the market, and people on the hunt for a new minivan are going to be treated to the newest model within the next couple of months. Although Honda Odyssey changes have already been announced, there are still some questions about what exactly it is going to look like.

One thing that you can likely expect is an upgrade to the technology features in the van. As more and more companies sign on with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, expect that upgrade to hit the 2017 Odyssey as well.

It’s also possible that the new vehicle is going to feature more Honda Sensing technology to make the vehicle safer. While the previous model featured the Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning, this year’s model may feature new technology like the Collision Mitigation Braking System.

The exterior of the car is going to be a bit different than last year’s model, and we expect some design changes and possible changes to the lighting.

As the van will be released in the next couple of months, the speculation will be coming to an end. It’s an exciting time for Honda, so be on the lookout for the changes that they make to the 2017 Odyssey.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Features: Rethinking Auto Design

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Features

Honda is set to make a stunning reveal of the new Civic Hatchback design at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Although the brand has already showcased versions of this model, this is the first time the mass-market version will be shown. With some new styling, packages, and features, we can’t wait to see the final product.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback features will include things like multiple powertrain options to select from. According to AutoGuide, this includes the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates up to 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. The Sport and Sport Touring models, on the other hand, come with 180 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Both a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a six-speed manual are available.

What else is new? The Hatch has sharp new styling, including a reshaped exterior that’s more aerodynamic than ever before. The rear roofline comes with a spoiler to improve airflow, while honeycomb paneling gives this model a bold appeal. The Civic Hatchback has some tech upgrades as well, including Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay, and a 7-inch display audio system.

Also at the Paris Motor Show, Honda will reveal the Jazz Spotlight Edition—a version of the Fit—and the Civic Type R. We can’t wait to see what Honda comes out with next.

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is the Most Efficient Hybrid Car

The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid will be the most efficient hybrid in the midsize sedan category

After skipping the 2016 model year, the Accord Hybrid is back—and in style. Based on its EPA-estimated fuel economy, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is now the most efficient midsize hybrid sedan on the market, with ratings of 49 mpg city, 47 mpg highway, and 48 mpg combined.

These values are about 4% higher than those of the outgoing model, which Honda claims was gained by totally re-engineering the powertrain; that includes revising the 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline engine and introducing new electric motors along with a lithium-ion battery pack.

The Accord Hybrid also features a new aluminum hood, but you wouldn’t be able to tell without closely peering at it. In fact, the hybrid is just like the conventional Accord in almost every way, save for the “EV Mode” button next to the center console.

Given that the Accord is already one of our most popular models at Sunny King Honda, we certainly have nothing to complain about the incredibly efficient Accord Hybrid!

New Honda Ridgeline Design Increases Performance and Styling

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline recently made an appearance at the Detroit Auto Show, leaving spectators with their jaws to the floor. This model is getting some serious upgrades, from styling to performance and engineering. You are bound to be satisfied with the new Honda Ridgeline design.

According to Jalopnik, the new Ridgeline has an independent suspension all the way around, making it the only truck to be built on a unibody platform. Not only does this shed some weight, but it also makes the Ridgeline incredibly more efficient. Plus, this model has a smoother ride than most other trucks.

Under the hood is a powerful 3.5-liter V6 that is paired with a six-speed transmission. You can also opt for a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system, increasing performance and making the Ridgeline better suited for off-roading.

Other cool features include a speaker system in the bed and refreshed styling. This new Ridgeline looks like a Honda, setting it apart from other, blander truck designs. We can’t wait to see the 2017 Ridgeline hit the roads.

Honda Ridgeline Makes a Comeback in 2017

If you’ve been missing Honda’s pickup truck, fear not, the Ridgeline will be back in 2017 with a whole new look. The all-new Honda Ridgeline is still in development, but Motor Trend was able to grab some spy shots of the prototype.

The new Ridgeline will have the same underpinnings as the 2016 Honda Pilot, which received an extensive makeover this year. Along with its underpinnings, the Ridgeline and Pilot will also share the same engine and 4-wheel drive system.

The spy shots aren’t the first we’ve seen of the new Ridgeline. At this month’s SEMA show, we got a look at the Honda Ridgeline Desert Race Truck, which will race this weekend at the Baja 1000. Although the Desert Race Truck version of the Ridgeline only shares a few elements with the production model, it is a good enough preview to hold us over until the Ridgeline makes its official debut.

So when can we expect to see the 2017 Honda Ridgeline? Look for its debut early next year at either the Detroit Auto Show or the Chicago Auto Show.
