An all-electric Honda Fit

Now this makes an enormous amount of sense so let’s get right into it. Honda is partnering with CATL (Contemporary Amperex Technology), China’s biggest battery maker, to develop a small subcompact electric car for the global market. The details so far available state that the...

Oil issues with Honda’s 1.5L turbo engines

Honda’s 1.5L turbo engines
Honda’s turbocharged 1.5L engine is common in a number of products, most notably the CR-V. It would seem as though there’s a known oil problem with the engine where the level rises almost inexplicably. In actuality, gasoline finds its way into the crankcase thus diluting the...

A 20-year old Civic for $24k??

Specifically, that’s $24,027 USD for a 1999 Honda Civic Si with 12,190 miles on the odometer… If you’re into cars like us, you’ll have ventured onto and remained trapped into bringatrailer.com for hours. It’s a dangerous, vile and villainous place. It is the crack-cocaine of...

2018 Honda Clarity FCV First Review

2017 Honda Clarity FCV

Honda’s Urban EV Concept: the coolest retro carto enter production?

Honda’s Urban EV Concept
We’ll have to answer a resounding “yes” to our own question. This cute 3-door hatchback is clearly inspired by a mix of the Honda N600 and the first generation Civic. Either way, the designer, Yuki Terai, is a freakin’ genius. Praise for the car’s styling...

We may never make fun of a 1st gen Honda Insight again.

Well, we make no promises but if we ever come across a grey “SPINBYU” Florida-plated 2000 Honda Insight, we might lift off the throttle to avoid humiliation, no matter what we’re driving. The $7,000 build, including the purchase price of the car, is bonkers. The...

What’s a Teslonda?

We at Motor Illustrated love cars; hopefully that’s obvious by now… What we also love is creativity and doing things because you can and want, not because you have to do it or that it’s the right thing to do. Case in point: the Teslonda...

AJAC 2018 car of the year finalists announced

The big Canadian Auto Show, held in Toronto, is only about a week away. It seems that every day, another showcase, or related attraction is announced. It should turn out to be quite the event this year! This time, it’s the Automobile Journalist Association of...

Honda Insight
Honda is clearly seeing green. After the launch of the Clarity last year, the Japanese manufacturer is now bringing back the Insight nameplate, and positioning it just above the popular Civic. This “compact premium hybrid” will feature seating for five passengers, a version of...
