The all-new Impreza will be reveled at the New York Auto Show this month and this is the first official photo. Hmm, after an impressive concept car... this is what we will get. I will wait for more photos before making any more comments...

Latest report about spicy Honda CR-Z!!!

We know that Honda is working on a spicy CR-Z (earlier post) and this time, another report confirms that it will use a 2.0L NA engine. The power output claimed now is 190 ps and it is unclear whether it will be badged as Type R, or it will be given a different name such as CR-Z 2000. In any case, it is expected to be introduced in February 2012.

Honda HR-V is coming back?!

Honda never replaced the successful HR-V outside Japan, but the latest reports from Japan suggest that a successor is underway and it will hit the markets in August 2014. Honda introduced the Crossroad back in 2008 and production ended last year, but it remained a JDM model only. I reckon that Honda should introduce an HR-V successor, as this segment is going to become very popular over the next couple of years.
