I had the opportunity to attend the 2016 Chicago Auto Show a couple days ago and Honda definitely represented. The new Ridgeline was present, the 2016 Honda Civic, the Fit and the HR-V were just some of the models that were at the show.
Honda has made a big comeback and the 2016 Honda Civic has earned the title of "2016 North American Car of the Year".With a sporty 2016 redesign, Honda is back in the drivers seat (Pun intended). Upper-end models offer new turbocharged engines, a first for Honda in mainstream non-performance cars. Lower-cost versions come standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that puts out 158 horsepower. Congratulations Honda!
Honda is resurrecting the Ridgeline and we can't wait for it to hit the road. After debuting in 2005, Honda is taking another shot at the pickup segment and introducing the all-new, second generation Honda Ridgeline. As did the previous Ridgeline, the new truck will be closely related to the Pilot crossover and share the same body platform. However, this time around, the Ridgeline will not only offer all-wheel drive but also front-wheel drive.
The Fit proves that a small car needn’t be punishment for spending less, successfully mixing economy, versatility—and even a little mischief. Its 1.5-liter four-cylinder makes 130 hp; a slick-shifting six-speed manual is standard, while a CVT is optional. Rear-seat legroom is ample, and thanks to rear seats that fold flat, cargo capacity—at 53 cubic feet—is impressive, too.
The 2016 Honda HR-V, the brands versatile and stylish crossover vehicle, has been named "2016 Green SUV of the Year" by Green Car Journal. The HR-V has been recognized for it's class-leading environmental performance. The Honda HR-V is Honda's third vehicle to be honored by Green Car Journal in the past 5 years, joining Green Car of the Year award winners, the 2012 Civic Natural Gas and the 2014 Accord. Congrats Honda on yet ANOTHER award!**
