Auto Shows Honda CR-V Hybrid and Seven-Seat Models Debut in Geneva
2019 Honda Insight Goes Mainstream
Prototype Insight will debut at the Detroit auto show in January. The prototype takes plenty of design cues from the Civic, including its long hood and curvaceous body lines.The 2019 Honda Insight will adopt a two-motor hybrid system. The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid uses this type of setup, pairing two electric motors with a 2.0-liter DOHC Atkinson cycle engine.© Motor Trend StaffExact powertrain details for the Insight are unknown, but it's already sounding better than the pesky Integrated Motor Assist setup on the old Insight. We never liked the system, which is comprised of a 1.
Theis the world's best-selling SUV, with 9 million sold since its debut in 1996. Those numbers should continue to climb as rolled out two new variants at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The finally makes its debut in Europe with a leading the way. This long-awaited model is powered by Honda's "Sport Hybrid intelligent multi-mode drive system." In the CR-V, the i-MMD system uses Honda's 2.0-liter inline-four gas engine, combined with one motor for propulsion and another acting as a motor/generator for electric power. This is the same powertrain that is in the new Accord Hybrid, Clarity PHEV, and soon-to-arrive new Insight. Since all of those vehicles are cleared for sale in the U.S., the CR-V's biggest market, it makes sense that CR-V Hybrid will come to the States as well. What doesn't look U.S.-bound is the seven-passenger variant of the CR-V that also debuted in Geneva.
2019 Honda Insight Prototype First Look: Trunk Sale
Might a proper trunk find Honda's entry hybrid a following?Europe drove the hatchback decision on the last generation, and apparently North America was granted its sedan wish this time around. Whatever the sales, profitability should be greatly improved for this generation, thanks to far greater sharing of tooling. The second-gen car was based on the crash architecture of the Fit hatch but looked drastically different (10.7 inches longer, 3.8 inches lower), but this one represents an exterior restyle of the Civic sedan with fastback styling cues vaguely reminiscent of the Mazda6 and Buick LaCrosse.
Another vehicle cleared for sale in Europe and Japan is the production version of Honda's-looking , which debuted in Frankfurt last year. Honda of Europe president Phillip Ross announced that order banks for the vehicle will open in early 2019 and that units will go on sale late in 2019. Ross said plans for production were supported by strong positive response to the slick, suicide-door'd concept. We like it too and hope Honda considers bringing in to the U.S.
