American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Key Developments
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Launches 2016 Civic Sedan
Nov 9 15
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. launched the 2016 Civic Sedan, a completely new-from-the-ground-up redesign of America's compact car, on Nov. 12 at Honda dealerships nationwide with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price MSRP starting at $18,640 – an increase of just $150 from the outgoing model. The 2016 Civic Sedan benefits from the most extensive and ambitious redesign in the 43-year history of Civic, a global development effort led for the first time by Honda's U.S. R&D team, which set their sights on creating the compact-class car with benchmark-setting levels of quality, fuel efficiency, interior spaciousness and fun-to-drive performance. The 2016 Civic Sedan offers buyers more choices than ever before with two all-new powertrains and an expanded range of features and trims. Civic LX and EX trims feature a new 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine—the most powerful base engine ever offered on Civic, while Civic EX-T, EX-L and new line-topping Touring models are powered by a 174-horspower, 1.5-liter DOHC TURBO engine with unprecedented levels of power, refinement and fuel economy ratings. EPA fuel economy ratings for the 2016 Civic Sedan are 31/41/35 mpg (city/highway/combined) for 2.0-liter models with continuously variable transmission (CVT) and 31/42/35 mpg for 1.5-liter TURBO models with CVT. Additional design and engineering highlights of the all-new 2016 Civic Sedan include: Dynamic new styling; All-new Civic platform architecture, A more rigid, lightweight and tightly sealed body, A more spacious and premium-quality cabin, Honda Sensing, Advanced connected-car capabilities. The 2016 Civic Sedan is the first in a series of new 10th-generation Civic variants that will include a sedan, coupe, sports-minded Si models, a five-door hatchback and the first-ever Civic Type-R model for the U.S. market.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Announces 2016 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid
Nov 2 15
Honda announced that combining new, more aggressive styling, upgraded standard and available features and sporty handling, the 2016 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid goes on sale November 3 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) ranging from $20,295 for the CR-Z LX with 6-speed manual transmission (MT) to $25,090 for the new EX-L with standard navigation (CVT). The CR-Z's agility is backed up by its punchy hybrid powerplant that produces up to an impressive 140 lb-ft of torque (MT), while offering EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 36/39/37 mpg3 city/highway/combined (CVT). New 2016 CR-Z Features: Center console with armrest (standard); Electric parking brake (standard); Smart Entry and Push Button Start/Stop (standard); Display Audio (standard) Honda LaneWatch™ (EX and above); Heated leather seats (EX-L); and Display Audio with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ (EX-L). The 2016 Honda CR-Z is available in LX, EX and EX-L trims. All trims come equipped with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available CVT. To further enhance convenience and protection, to customize feature content and provide personalization opportunities for the 2016 CR-Z, Honda developed a range of Honda Genuine Accessories. New styling accessories include front bumper, rear tailgate and A- and B-pillar garnishes, LED fog lights with blue accent, and a fuel tank lid garnish. Powertrain: The hybrid powertrain uses a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder, 16-valve, single-overhead cam (SOHC) engine with "intelligent" Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) that receives additional power from the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA®) system's DC brushless electric motor. Powered by a 144-volt Lithium-Ion battery pack, the 15 kW electric motor assists in acceleration and also acts as a generator during braking or coasting to capture kinetic energy to recharge the battery pack. Combined peak output is 130 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 140 lb.-ft. of torque (127 lb.-ft. on CVT-equipped models), including electric-motor assist. Selectable Econ, Normal and Sport operating modes let the driver select his or her desired balance of economy and performance. In addition, the standard Plus Sport System delivers increased acceleration when the driver presses the "S+" button on the steering wheel (when the battery is more than 50% charged and the CR-Z is traveling over 19 mph). The CR-Z's idle-stop feature temporarily turns off the gasoline engine when the vehicle comes to a stop under certain conditions. In this situation, the hybrid powertrain's ECU monitors the closed throttle, speed and brake pressure to determine the driver is bringing the car to a stop. When the brake pedal is released, the engine is restarted and power is available immediately. Body: Refreshed with exterior design and trim upgrades for 2016, the CR-Z's "one-motion" exterior wedge shape begins at its low-slung hood to form a broad forward stance, with its deeply inset beltline adding a dynamic element. Standard exterior features include power windows and power door locks, remote entry, and an Expanded View Driver's Mirror. The CR-Z EX and EX-L model add LED daytime running lights (DRL), High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights with Auto-On/Off, and fog lights. Chassis: The front MacPherson strut and rear H-shaped torsion beam suspension systems, along with electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering (EPS), are tuned to provide a sporty driving experience. All CR-Z models have 16-inch aluminum wheels and 195/55R16 tires. The CR-Z's low height, compact wheelbase and placement of the battery and other hybrid components beneath the rear cargo area contribute to a low center of gravity and responsive, sporty handling. To further improve the 2016 CR-Z's handling prowess, the chassis was retuned with several components receiving upgrades: the front stabilizer bar diameter was increased from 19 mm to 20 mm; the rear wheel track was increased by 10 mm; and front and rear brake discs were enlarged to 11.1 inches in diameter (up from 10.3 inch front and 10.2 inch rear). Interior: The CR-Z interior has a high-tech appearance and intuitive controls including the new Display Audio touchscreen. The hybrid sport coupe's ultra-modern instrument panel features gauges that illuminate with a three-dimensional color theme for a multi-layered appearance, with the tachometer backlighting color changing based on driving style. The sweeping upper dashboard shape creates a wraparound cockpit environment. Premium sport-oriented seats provide firm lateral support along with everyday driving comfort and are now offered on the new EX-L trim as heated leather seats with an attractive contrasting stitch pattern to provide a premium sporty interior feel. A console behind the front seats optimizes cargo space, with a hard-shell separator that can be closed to create additional hidden storage. Standard electronic features include the Display Audio-operated, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with six speakers and speed-sensitive volume control and a USB auxiliary input jack for connection to a portable audio player. Other interior features include Pandora® compatibility, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, automatic climate control and cruise control. The CR-Z EX and EX-L adds a 360-Watt AM/FM/CD Premium Audio System with seven speakers including subwoofer and HD Radio. A Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System is standard on the CR-Z EX-L. Included with the Navi system are HD traffic and voice recognition, Bluetooth® streaming audio and an SMS text messaging function. Safety: Honda's exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure helps protect occupants in a frontal collision. Additional safety technologies include dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; standard front-side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); side-curtain airbags, active head restraints; an anti-lock braking system (ABS); a tire pressure monitoring system; and design features to the front of the vehicle intended to mitigate potential injuries to a pedestrian in a collision. All 2015 and newer Honda models, including the 2016 CR-Z, incorporate a multi-angle rearview camera. Viewable on the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, the camera can show a top view, normal or wide view when the transmission is in Reverse. The camera view features dynamic guidelines that help the driver better judge distances and project the vehicle's future path based on the driver's steering inputs. Warranty: The 2016 Honda CR-Z is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile new-car limited warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a 5-year/unlimited-mile corrosion limited warranty. A 15-year/150,000-mile emissions warranty also applies when the vehicle is registered and normally operated in California and certain states that have adopted California Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations.
