2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Details Emerge

The 2017 Honda Civic has been the source of enthusiastic praise and admiration with its sporty style and sleek, ergonomic interior. The popular compact car already comes in both sedan and coupe body styles, but there’s something missing. We’ve already seen the European 2017 Honda Civic hatchback at the Paris Auto Show, but now the American version has been caught on film.

The orange markers on the fenders are a dead giveaway that the pictures of the Civic hatchback are indeed of the American model. It will officially join the sedan and coupe Civics that are already on sale later this fall.

The hatchback will offer only one engine choice for the initial launch. A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder block that produces 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque will sit under the hood of the LX, EX, and EX-L. Power peaks in the Sport and Sport Touring trims at 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed manual transmission.

Those interested in the upcoming Type-R model can sing praises as the hatchback will serve as the base for the performance-driven model. Expect the Type-R Civic to hit the market in 2017 and bring more than 300 hp to the road.

We at Avery Greene Honda can’t wait for the arrival of the new 2017 Civic hatchback!

2016 Honda Civic Design Revealed

2015 Honda Civic

Current Honda Civic Available at Avery Greene Honda

The best-selling Honda Civic is going into its 10th generation with style. The Civic has become a well-known nameplate, as well as the basis and inspiration for many compact car designs on the market. However, the 2016 Honda Civic design was revealed at a Los Angeles event recently, and for the next generation Honda seems to be taking the car in a sportier, more youthful direction.

The compact car will come in a base model as well as five-door hatchback and coupe styles. Two higher trims will be offered: Civic Si and Civic Type-R. The 2016 Civic design has kept some of the style from the Civic concept unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show and its cabin—which is positioned further back on the body of the car, along with the sculpted wheel arches—grants the Civic a less traditional, more dramatic and muscular appearance.

The 2016 Civic will also come with a more powerful engine ever seen in a Civic, according to Honda. The base model comes with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with i-VTEC variable valve timing, while there is also an available 1.5-liter turbo engine–the first turbocharged engine to be offered with a base Civic. In terms of tech features, the 2016 Civic will also feature a 7-inch touchscreen display that is compatible with both Android Audio and Apple CarPlay.

The 2016 Honda Civic design has been revamped to lure in new, younger buyers, and with its new looks, standard features, and available options, it may do just that. The Civic is slated to appear on dealer lots sometime this fall, with pricing to be announced closer to the release date.

2015 Honda HR-V is a Fit Crossover, and That’s About All We Know

Everybody is more than a little excited about the 2015 Honda Fit, and with good reason: it stands to be one of the most exciting small cars on the market this year. While the Fit represents Honda at the pinnacle of small car mastery, the all-new 2015 Honda HR-V will express Honda’s potential to dominate the compact SUV market.

Honda Fit

The all-new Honda HR-V will be a CUV offshoot of the Honda Fit!

“Both Fit and HR-V demonstrate how great things can come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda, in a press release. “Together these models also represent Honda’s step-by-step expansion of our production in the region, which has been key to our success in America for more than 30 years.”

So what do we know so far about the HR-V? It shares a lot of its bones with the Fit, with both being built on the same platform. It’s something of a riff off of the Urban S.U.V. that appeared in New York at this same time last year, and based on the pictures we’ve seen, it looks quite sharp.

That, as they say, is the story so far. There were no specs released, though we could assume that the HR-V will get the same four-cylinder engine that will power the sporty fit. We do know that Honda has projected for a winter release…oh, how cruel is Honda to make us think that there will be a next winter.

We will have more information on the 2015 HR-V as it becomes available to your trusted Avery Greene Honda bloggers.

Honda Ups Its Game at Mexico Plant for 2015 Honda Fit

Honda is celebrating the production start of the redesigned 2015 Fit at its new Honda de Mexico automobile plant. Thanks to the plant’s advanced technology, Honda believes it can significantly improve its ability to meet consumer demand for fuel-efficient subcompact vehicles.

2015 Honda Fit

Honda is expanding its Mexico production facility in anticipation of the 2015 Fit.

The plant, which was constructed starting only two years ago in Celaya, Guanajuato, will employ 3,200 associates with an annual capacity of 200,000 vehicles and engines when it reaches full production capacity later this year—increasing Honda’s annual automobile production in North America to about 1.92 million units. This also means that Honda will now be producing more than 95% of all its vehicles in North America compared to the 90% that it does now.

Keeping in line with the Honda Fit’s environmentally-friendly theme, the new plant also takes efficiency to the next level. Here, check it out:

  • A high-speed servo stamping press and high-speed die change process have increased the efficiency of the stamping process by about 40%
  • An all-new welder system allows for less welding robots while increasing the number of weld points, improving quality and efficiency
  • A new water-based painting process reduces energy consumption during the painting process by about 40% while enhancing paint finish quality.

And these are just a few of the improvements! The all-new 2015 Honda Fit will go on sale later in spring 2014 at Avery Greene Honda!
