  1. Honda Sensing Elite

    Honda wanted to eliminate Lane Watch a few times already but kept backing off. So BSM is most likely going to happen. I personally don't care for BSM because Lane Watch + looking on the left works great. It's only cars with gimped visibility like SUVs and even the narrow window Accord that...
  2. 2022 Civic Hatchback Spied Again With New Wheels, Less Camo

    I'm pretty happy with the "dark grey" wheels I ended up with on a white '21 EX Hatchback somehow. They still provide chrome lugnuts and the chrome honda logo which gives it a good accenting. Nothing cheap looking about it. I actually hate the "two tone" rims that Honda uses on a few...
  3. 2022 Civic Sedan First Official Image! Specs and Info Coming April 28

    Hah, I would argue most younger people buying a Civic as their new car do it because it's (a) Honda and (b) cheaper end of car pricing. There will only be a subset that prioritizes looks. Most people drive these things as commuters, not sports cars. I picked up a 10th gen civic because it gave...
  4. Honda Sensing Elite

    I imagine HSE will become a Touring model upsell.
  5. 2022 Civic colors and trims revealed 🎨

    Simple, color choices are going to based on sales forecasts. They apparently don't see it selling enough to justify the expense. I suspect Meteorite Gray however is the substitute dark grey color that they think is more appealing.
  6. Spied!! 2022 Civic Hatchback in Japan!!

    Those look exactly like the fake exhaust tips like the Accord 1.5T Sport has. (They are trying to reuse parts so....) The US Civic was most likely a non-Sport trim.
  7. Spied: 2022 Civic Sedan in Platinum White and Lunar Silver (US Spec)

    Yep, everyone wants practicality. A trunk sedan is literally a bad dated boomer design. Their parents before had cars that were hatchbacks/station wagons and the generations now are a bit wiser as well. It's the only way to compete with the practicality offered by crossovers/suvs. Don't get me...
  8. 2022 Civic colors and trims revealed 🎨

    I do believe the Hybrid drivetrain is standardized on the same 2.0L engine so it is here to stay as long as it sells in the Civic. It probably has some sort of cost/benefit for them.
  9. 2022 Civic colors and trims revealed 🎨

    Yea EXL being axed is somewhat expected. Honda's CEO in 2018 when he took over even made the "madness" of so many trims a priority to trim across all the cars. The Accord had 13 different factory build configs as his example and it just drives up cost of manufacturing. In general also Honda's...
  10. Civic Hatchback Hybrid Only? Mag-X Japanese Magazine Google Translate Details

    Hah, very little are actually buying those brands as new cars, they are mostly used cars from leases. So while new the car was $40k, they end up buying them for $30k and below used. Around the suburbs where I live, Honda sedans still outnumber of the rest of the sedans with a huge bias for 10th...
  11. Civic Hatchback Hybrid Only? Mag-X Japanese Magazine Google Translate Details

    The CRV and HRV actually follow the Accord, they are just behind the Accord cycle. Their current frontends are akin to the 9th gen Accords. The 10th gen Civic was designed in America, now that Honda reorganized in 2018 under the new CEO, they have moved all design back to Japan, so it figures...
  12. Civic Hatchback Hybrid Only? Mag-X Japanese Magazine Google Translate Details

    The accord was missing from some honda surveys last year about future plans. They may we'll be discontinuing it in the future and just lumping it all under civics. Not only are sedan sales dying but we are past peak vehicle sales, there are YoY declines regardless of suv sales increasing. All...
  13. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    Yea the cost differential on Accord Hybrid is only $1400 from Honda, roughly. So it's quite "cheap" to add. It's even easier now that Hybrids can share the same vehicle chassis as the gas cars. Toyota has a higher cost differential but it's their brand markup, also I think their system is...
  14. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    Meanwhile Tesla is still trying to push out their pedestrian murdering truck.
  15. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    Toyota is eating their lunch with "boring designs" probably. The Accord and Civic saw a 27/37% drop in Feburary sales. The Camry and Corolla have only seen 18%/17% drops. Honda CUV/SUV sales are actually up at the same time so it isn't purely a "economy drop", especially Toyota saw RAV4 sales drop.
  16. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    It would be weird as hell to have a hybrid with a turbo engine. They do already have the 1.5 hybrid on the Civic aka Insight in the architecture of the Accord.
  17. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    Europe is not the only market for Honda. Asia and China combined match and exceed US market for them. Most Asian countries are pushing hard for electrification as well. Otherwise you are in denial, the combustion engine is going to be killed off by everyone within a decade or two. It won't be...
  18. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    There's literally no reason for Honda to invest any further in engine tech. They have committed in Europe to going hybrid and electric only from 2023. That means this may be the last new gasoline car generation for the US as well before they go Hybrid only in the further future. It's safe to...
  19. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    Inverted the HRV because left hand is the best hand
  20. 😱 Production 2022 Civic Sedan LEAKED!

    We are past peak car, every manufacturer is trying to streamline because sales are going down YoY of all vehicles in general. They are being pushed to cost cut and reorganize. Honda specifically in 2018 with their CEO transition committed to reorganizing their business units. Particularly...
