Honda Li Nian S1 Unveiled 21
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, honda, Honda Acura, Honda City, Li Nian S1, new Honda model on 12 21st, 2010

The new Honda Li Nian S1 was displayed at China’s Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition. The S1 is based on the old Honda City platform and is inspired by the Everus concept.

The S1 is aimed at first time car buyers, and the car is careful not to make a significant statement. The older Acura –type grille is missing, as is the LED headlights.

Details of the engine options were given – a 1.3- and 1.5-liter four-cylinder will be available. Although the vehicle’s performance specifications haven’t been released, it is assumed that the 1.5-liter will produce at least 120 hp (89 kW / 122 PS).

Reports confirm that the car will be available in the market by spring 2011.

New-Gen Honda Civic Pictures Out; Silver-hued Prototypes Spotted Sans Camouflage 12
Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, Econ, honda, Honda City, Honda Civic on 10 12th, 2010

The very first images of the long awaited next generation Honda Civic are out!  A couple of silver colored prototypes were spotted without any camouflage during a test run. The font of the car has been completely redone – the old curves have been wiped away and replaced with a sharper design – which seems to enable wider and lower air intake.

On both the sides of the vehicle, optional fog light cut outs were seen; though these were covered by silver tape. There was also a bit of camouflage on the base of the A-pillar and C-pillar and on the rear bumper – which could be covering up some surprise design elements.

Headlamps seem to be similar to the ones on similar models available in the US; and the car sports a character line that runs through the body. The arrow shaped cluster of rear lamps looks more like that on the City – quite different from the circular look of the previous model. The dash board in the interior is the same – rising sharply toward the driver; the usual three spoke steering wheel has two four way controllers on both the sides. A host of buttons are in array for controls, eliminating all the knobs that used to exist previously.

The car has an ‘Econ’ button that will help to give maximum efficiency to the engine, transmission and cooling functions.

Sources were unable to checkout the engine, but say that it is most likely to have a 1.5 liter unit – which would be smaller than the 1.8 140bhp one which exists in current models. This would help increase fuel efficiency, but cut down on acceleration.
