Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day Joke Brings Back ’90s Nostalgia

Honda Pastport April Fool’s Day

 

On the first of every April, people across the country get up to some major hijinks, thanks to April Fool’s Day. This year, Honda was no exception. The Japanese carmaker got into the April Fool’s Day spirit this year by posting about the brand-new Pastport trim for the 2019 Passport — an entirely fictitious model, but one that we really, really wish were true.

 

The fictional Pastport trim is a ’90s-inspired version of the Passport, which features a throwback interior that highlights popular ’90s features, including automatic windows, a cassette player, and plush micro-fiber seats. It even has a mount for your beeper!

 

“From TV reboots to fashion, the ’90s are making a huge comeback, and we saw an opportunity at Honda for consumers who want uniqueness and simplicity, so we decided to reach back and bring the Pastport to market this spring,” said Zack Tanner, historical innovations manager for Honda. “We think the new Pastport is all that and a bag of chips.”

 

While this nostalgic trim level isn’t actually available, you can come in to Avery Greene Honda to check out the actual Passport. This ruggedly handsome SUV is the newest addition to Honda’s SUV lineup. It comes with an available all-wheel-drive system, standard safety technologies, ample power, and an abundance of interior space to make it a solid choice in its segment.

2016 Honda Accord Arrives in Australia

The 2016 Honda Accord is a top competitor among the midsize sedan segment—and for good reason. Boasting the interior of a luxury car, there aren’t many competitors that can compare. The latest Accord arrived in Australia not long ago with new equipment, styling, and pricing.

Boasting a chromed-out front end, the 2016 Honda Accord keeps up with the latest Honda Civic’s appearance with ease. Riding on a new wheel design, a little goes a long way in this popular car.

In terms of equipment, Honda added the LaneWatch Camera system to the base Accord. That safety technology displays what the driver might not be able to see on the touchscreen. The higher trims come equipped with the Honda Sensing safety suite which includes road departure mitigation and a lane keep assist system, among others.

The Accord VTi comes fully loaded for a little over $23,700 in United States currency. In Australian currency, that same model will run drivers $32,990. The top-end model, the 2016 Honda Accord V6L, costs nearly $37,800 in United States dollars while the same model breaks $52,500 in Australian dollars.

We here at Avery Greene Honda are glad to see more regions getting behind the wheel of the latest Honda Accord!

Next-Generation Honda Amaze Expected By End of 2018

HondaWord on the street says that we’re in for a next-generation Honda Amaze, and it may be on its way by 2018. The compact sedan is a big hit in its market in India. Rumors regarding a new generation come on the heels of the Indian government tightening restrictions on vehicle safety, with officials at Honda going into the preparations for the new Amaze with a focus on safety in order to comply with the upcoming restrictions.

The new Amaze will reportedly undergo a number of cosmetic changes in addition to the installation of cutting-edge safety technology. These changes include an updated, entirely redesigned exterior with a more modern and stylish appearance, plus an interior made from improved materials offering more space, a new dual-themed dashboard, and automatic climate control.

The safety restrictions themselves are very heavily geared toward protecting the driver and passengers in the event of a collision, particularly a frontal collision. Honda leaped at the opportunity, announcing that all vehicles in its lineup will have standard dual front airbags starting April 2017. Additionally, all vehicles in its lineup sold in India run on the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which maintains rigidity and structural integrity during a crash.

The next-generation Honda Amaze will be engineering and constructed in Japan, at Honda’s Greater Noida and Tapukara plants. Production is slated to begin June 2018, with vehicle launch likely happening sometime that year. While the Amaze likely won’t be coming to US shores, the innovation of new safety technology and platforms in order to keep up with tightening government restrictions bodes well for Honda’s global market, as its worldwide lineup eventually adopts the newest tech.

Honda Civic Type R’s Nurburgring Lap Time Trounces Old Record

In stunning fashion, the Honda Civic Type R officially clobbered its past Nurburgring lap time and crushed stereotypes about a front-wheel drive in the process. The upcoming 2015 Civic Type R posted a lap time of 7:50.63, beating the previous front-wheel drive record of 7:54.36.

Honda released the video of the Civic Type R’s lap time and it will surprise you as much as it did anyone else. The turbocharged Type R generates 306 horsepower and has a top speed of nearly 170 mph; it’s outfitted with a three-pedal manual gearbox.

The Honda Civic Type R’s Nurburgring lap time is only 10 seconds off of the pace of the Porsche Cayman GT4 and 30 seconds off of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Although the Honda Civic Type R is only bound for Europe we at Avery Greene Honda still love it just as much! If you want to see the full video of the Civic Type R’s Nurburgring lap time check out the video below.

Honda N Box + Unveiled

Honda unveiled the N Box last November and due to its great success, Honda has created the N Box+.  The cargo van is to be an improvement on its predecessor, featuring increased versatility and innovative ways to load and unload cargo.

What is catching most consumers’ eyes is the unique styling.  After all, that is how the vehicle got its name.  The “N” is because the van is part of Honda’s N-line of vehicles, and the “Box” comes from its unmistakable shape.

The N Box+ aims to be a more practical version of the N Box, and it’s doing so through a couple innovative features.  The “Universal Bridge” is a U-Haul like ramp that extends from the back of the vehicle.  This allows drivers to easily load and unload items on wheels.

The N Box+ also boasts a “Multi-space system”, which is composed of three versatile boards of different sizes.  The boards can be arranged in a number of different variations, including a bed and cargo mode.

Unfortunately -or fortunately depending on your opinion of the van’s unique exterior- the N Box+ will only be available in Japan.
