Honda Civic Type R Wraps Up Record-Setting Tour: Video

The current Honda Civic Type R was the first generation to be available in the United States, and as with other long-forbidden fruit, like the Nissan GT-R, expectations were high. Fortunately for Honda, the little pocket rocket delivered in a big way. Enthusiast publications far and wide hailed the performance of the hot hatch, and were genuinely impressed at how well the company was able to make its front-wheel drive platform handle.

The Honda Civic Type R Has Set Another Lap Record

The Honda Civic Type R has already snagged the record for fastest front-wheel drive car around Germany’s notorious Nürburgring. But it seems owning the competition at the Green Hell wasn’t enough, because Honda has just released footage of the little pocket rocket tackling the famed bends at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, and the results were predictably impressive. Ace pilot Bertrand Baguette, who also won the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2013, managed to fling the 306-horsepower Type R around the track in a scant 2:53.72, and did it without…

2018 Honda CR-V Test Drive Review

The Honda CR-V just celebrated its 20th birthday last year with a ground-up redesign, and we were impressed with the all-new fifth-gen CR-V. Since then, I seem to have become the unofficial compact CUV tester here at AutoNation Drive having driven most of the CR-V’s key rivals in the last year including the Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Hyundai Tucson, Chevrolet Equinox, Volkswagen Tiguan, Mazda CX-5 and even the Mitsubishi Outlander. Since the 2018 Honda CR-V carries over unchanged from the 2017 model year, driving this crossover again gave me yet…
