    Young drivers have been getting their first chance to experience the thrill of life behind the wheel since Disneyland Park opened on July 17, 1955. Notice how close Autopia is to its big brother just beyond the berm, Interstate 5.




      My introduction to motoring wasn't quite as exhilarating as that of kids today.  I remember, vividly the first time I visited a new car showroom.  It was with my father, up in western New York.  And it was a now defunct manufacture's dealership.  Back then car dealerships could be found in the downtown area of many cities, both large and small.  Location, location, location, how things have change.

    Typical Showroom Back in the day
    (Circa 1966)
     

    These days, many kids are introduced to motoring in more fun ways.  In the family vehicles(plural), and better yet motoring to tomorrow behind the wheel of miniature gas fueled cars at Disneyland!  They actually get to drive!  And these cars are powered by Honda.  How cool is that?

    Yesterday  Erin Furlong opened the door  at her house to learn that she was officially the Gulf Coast Honda Dealers' Lightning Fan of the Year.  As the grand prize winner, Erin receives a 2-year lease of a 2016 Accord LX.  She will be ditching her beat-up Sentra and couldn't be happier to be joining the Honda family!
     
     
    Representative of the Gulf Coast Honda Dealers association, members of the Lightning Marketing team, 2 of the Lightning Girls, the Lightning mascot, Thunderbug, and Lightning Alumni and Captain of the Stanley Cup-winning team, Dave Andreychuk arrived at Erin's house in "Publishers Clearing House" fashion.

    The Honda Civic Red Bull GRC team will begin racing on May 21 in Phoenix at the first event of the season.  I've run out of clichés for the new Civic.  I'm open to any new and creative ones that fit the new Civic Coupe.  You may want to stop in to see/drive one today.  Nonetheless for the purposes of introducing the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe to you.... I'm going with a picture says a thousand words. 

    Check this one out, more to follow.

     
    "Global Rallycross is seriously extreme racing, and it's a terrific platform to showcase the new Civic Coupe to an enthusiastic, performance-minded young audience," said Nick Lee, National Advertising Manager, American Honda Motor Co, Inc. "We won't encourage our customers to take 70-foot jumps out on the street, but we will use this platform to tell people about all the incredible technology and performance capabilities of our new Civic Coupe."

    ONE! AVAILABLE NOW!
     
     
     
    TWO!! ARRIVING SOON!!
    The 2016 Civic Coupe


    The Civic Coupe is arriving at dealerships this month and in just a few weeks customers will be able to experience the sportiest, most sophisticated and tech-savvy Civic Coupe yet. And today in New York, Honda will hold the North American debut of the amazing new Civic Hatchback as they further up the ante on 10th-generation Civic styling, utility and fun-to-drive performance.

     
     
    THREE!!!
    THE CIVIC HATCHBACK!!!
     
    And there's more...  On the heels of the just-introduced coupe, Honda is going to be building on that momentum with a new efour door hatchback version.  That combining sporty driving performance with hatchback utility.



    Powered by the same 1.5-liter, 174-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine found in higher trim levels of the sedan, the big powertrain news for enthusiasts is that the hatchback will mark the first pairing of that engine with an available six-speed manual transmission, and that the manual will also be offered throughout the Civic lineup for 2017. A continuously-variable (CVT) automatic will still be available for those who prefer not to shift for themselves.

    It's apparent, the new Ridgeline is looking somewhat Americanized!   I like it.  Rumor has it that you can expect improved handling as well as improved mileage.  With that the Ridgeline would seem to fit the expectations of most Honda owners.  For the truck shopping crowd this may be the icing on the cake. 

    When it comes to value added surprises there are a few notable ones...aside from the trunk that is tucked underneath the cargo bed, the A/C outlet that was formerly 115-Watt, it's now 400-watt outlet.  So you can plug your flat screen TV in now.  And there's sound in the bed as well.  (details to come) There's still a drain plug in the in bed cargo area. I frequently used mine as an open cooler for tailgating.  After the ice was melted...it was easy to drain the water.

    According to Rich Edmonds at AndroidCentral
    Wednesday, Mar 2, 2016 at 6:10 am EST

    "Maserati has announced that the new Levante range will support Android Auto, thanks to the on-board high-resolution 8.4-inch touch screen display. The ability to connect your Android-powered smartphone to your vehicle is almost becoming standard across numerous ranges, allowing you to better focus on the road."

    And it's not just Maserati that is leading in all that in-car technology, check out the cockpit of the Lamboghini below:


    And then this, a recent headline from the Verge, "First Click: Apple CarPlay pulls ahead of Android Auto at Geneva Motor Show " Yep, form has always followed function, functional demands of the market coupled with fierce fighting to dominate in the realm of product differentiation, the market has pushed the envelope. The results, a form factor, high in integration attributes, that is enabled by advancements in emerging technologies that have evolved to be both economically feasible, cost effective and technologically robust.

    Here's a similar photo of the inside of the 2016 Honda Civic. Rich in design, both aesthetically, ergonomically and in technological integration. With seamless and automated, intuitive customization...say goodbye to that learning curve.


    Wow it would seem that 'technology' is indeed as important as style, performance, engineering, safety, not to mention comfort, convenience and economy.

    It's an age where we can have it all. So maybe it's time to present the product from the inside out because that is where the major value added resides! Just sayin'.

    Here's a link to two fun and informative "storytime" videos.  You will find each provides a charming twist on a typical product demonstration –told through stories by children. Just how cool is that.  Feel free to share this content on your own social platforms from Honda’s Facebook and YouTube channels.
