Honda dis­plays

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drivetime Extra - Im­por­tant new mod­els

This month’s Frank­furt Mo­tor Show prom­ises to be very im­por­tant for Honda.

The Ja­panese com­pany will present its new model range of en­tirely re­freshed and all­new cars for the first time to­gether. Along­side the new line-up, Honda will also show­case de­sign con­cepts and ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies, all de­mon­strat­ing Honda’s cre­ativ­ity in meet­ing the per­sonal mo­bil­ity chal­lenges of to­day and the fu­ture. 2015 Frank­furt Mo­tor Show will see the all­new HR-V and Jazz mod­els on dis­play. Due to ar­rive in Euro­pean show­rooms this month, both mod­els com­bine so­phis­ti­cated new de­sign con­cepts with the safety, classlead­ing in­te­rior space and ver­sa­til­ity cus­tom­ary to Honda mod­els. One of the best selling SUVs in the world, 2015 has seen Honda’s CR-V re­freshed for the Euro­pean mar­ket with a new diesel en­gine and au­to­matic trans­mis­sion, as well as new safety tech­nol­ogy. The 2015 Honda Civic and Civic Tourer fea­ture new sporty ex­te­rior and in­te­rior styling en­hance­ments, re­flected by a new Civic Sport, as well as in­tro­duc­ing Honda Con­nect, an ad­vanced An­droid­based in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem of­fer­ing WiFi, Blue­tooth, USB, HDMI and Mir­ror Link con­nec­tiv­ity. The new Civic Type R is Honda’s race car for the road and rep­re­sents Honda’s rac­ing spirit and com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing classlead­ing per­for­mance through cre­ative en­gi­neer­ing. The Bri­tish-built model, which de­buted ear­lier this year at the Geneva Mo­tor Show, is pow­ered by an all-new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO en­gine and is the most ex­treme model ever to wear the leg­endary red badge of a Type R. With un­matched per­for­mance in the Euro­pean front-wheel drive hot hatch seg­ment, the Civic Type R’s peak power out­put is 310 PS at 6,500 rpm. The Frank­furt Mo­tor Show will also stage the global pre­miere of ‘Honda Pro­ject 2 & 4’. A win­ner of the global de­sign com­pe­ti­tion run by Honda be­tween its global de­sign stu­dios, Honda Pro­ject 2 & 4 rep­re­sents the com­pany’s drive to in­spire and re­ward cre­ative think­ing. Em­body­ing Honda’s con­cept of ‘cre­ative crafts­man­ship’, Honda Pro­ject 2 & 4 was de­signed to­gether by Honda’s mo­tor­cy­cle de­sign cen­tre in Asaka and by Honda’s au­to­mo­bile de­sign cen­tre in Wako, Ja­pan. The pro­ject is the re­sult of the com­pany’s con­tin­u­ous ef­fort to cre­ate a more ex­cit­ing user ex­pe­ri­ence. The re­sult is an im­mer­sive driv­ing en­vi­ron­ment com­bin­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence Honda has in pro­vid­ing the free­dom of a mo­tor­cy­cle with the ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity of a car.
