Honda Civic Type R — Prepare to have fun

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

We've been fans of the Si performance version of the mainstream Honda Civic for years. With more horsepower than the standard garden variety Civic and with handling and corning credentials that put it in the extremely fun-to-drive category, what is not to love? This has been for decades the Civic to buy.

Honda Odyssey — the minivan reimagined

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

It's no secret that the traditional minivan is considerably more proficient at carrying passengers and cargo than the more popular crossover SUV. But practicality is not a persuasive argument for ditching the crossover in favor of a minivan for most families in the second decade of the 21st Century.

2018 Honda Odyssey

It occurred to me that the Honda Odyssey, first introduced almost 25 years ago in 1994, is the perfect stealth vehicle. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not encouraging any suspicious or illegal activity. But Odyssey’s never been a vehicle that will turn heads or be followed home to ask the owner what they are driving. They’re everywhere, yet no one pays any attention to them. But who cares?

Honda CR-V — Making an excellent crossover better

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Jump inside a 2017 Honda CR-V compact crossover and relish in the very comfortable interior, and then take it for a couple of spins around the block and you will understand why it has become the best selling SUV in the country. The CR-V has been made over for the 2017 model year and Honda has done a creditable job leaving in place the things that made the last generation an exceptional vehicle while adding new engines, technology and infotainment features.

Honda Civic Hatchback — Civic fun with more space

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The current-generation Honda Civic is stylish inside and out, offers a refined driving experience, and it's loaded with passenger and cargo space for a family of four. For 2017 Honda offers even one better — the Civic Hatchback that provides the same experience, but with the utility of a small crossover.

2017 Honda CR-V

INDIANAPOLIS — I remember seeing the Honda CR-V during its Detroit Auto Show debut nearly 20 years ago.  There, in the middle of this grand hall, was a tiny little crossover among a sea of large full-framed SUVs.  I, and many others, laughed until our stomachs cramped.  Nobody laughs now as the CR-V has become America’s best-selling SUV.  Turbo power and a fashion makeover ignite this rocket’s fire.

Honda Civic — Offering safety and reliability

By David Finkelstein

With some 1,000 (or so) independent U.S. Honda dealers dotting the country from coast-to-coast, the 10th generation 2017 Civic's are now being showcased in both Coupe and Sedan versions. The head turning and dramatic appearing all new sporty Civic design starts with its modern athletic stance and it's low, yet wide body proportions.

It's the best of times for people shopping mid-sized family sedans. They have a wealth of choices.

That makes build quality, reliability and resale value even more important, and Honda has excelled with the Accord.
