5 Honda-centric Things We’re Looking Forward to in 2017

2017 Honda CR-V

New Honda and Acura Vehicles Could Make 2017 a Great One

The new year is here! Will it be any better than 2016? We have no idea. What we do know is that we’re looking forward to a lot of Honda- and Acura-related action in the new year, including these five exciting moments…


1. Driving the New Acura NSX

As responsible automotive writers, we feel it’s our responsibility to thoroughly test-drive and review the pinnacle of Acura’s performance and engineering abilities. We’re just that dedicated. The fact that the new NSX looks like a spaceship and has 573 horsepower has nothing to do with our motivation…

2. Finding Out If the 2017 Honda CR-V is as Good as It Looks

New looks, available turbocharged power, and higher fuel economy? Sign us up and hand us the keys.

3.) Discovering If the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is Boring Inside and Out

Sure, the 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid isn’t the most visually exciting sedan we’ve ever seen, but its total output of 377 horsepower, dual-clutch gearbox, and advanced all-wheel drive system has us mentally excited.


4. Getting Our Hands on the Civic Type R…

The Civic Type R is coming to the U.S. and we’re waiting for it as patiently as we can. So are tuners, who are eager to turn their wrenches on it…and convert the souped-up Civic into an even faster car. We’ll welcome the CTR with a heavy right foot and high-rpm shifts.

5. …and the Civic Si

OK. OK. We weren’t exactly dazzled by the sight of the new Civic Si at the LA Auto Show. In all fairness, we haven’t driven it. We’ll see if it pleasantly surprises us once we get behind the wheel. It’s not 2017 yet, but we’re crossing our fingers that it does right now.
