2021 Honda Insight enters the fray with new safety tech

The good thing about the 2021 Honda Insight is its conventional three-box sedan body style. From any angle, the Insight is pretty much a normal family sedan, and that’s a good thing if you like staying under the radar.

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid First Drive: Strategically Green

You'd be forgiven for not realizing the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid was, well, a hybrid, and that's by design. Side by side with the gas-only crossover, this freshly electrified version bears all the hallmarks of simply being a fancier trim. The Honda badge is now blue-edged, while the rear bumper is different and hides the tailpipe; Touring trim splashes on some extra chrome, too. It all begs the question: how loud does your hybrid really need to be?

GM’s Cruise Origin is not like other autonomous cars

GM’s Cruise Origin is not like other autonomous cars

Rarely has "form follows function" been so fitting as with the Cruise Origin, the autonomous taxi pod that the GM and Honda-backed transportation company revealed this week. It's a far cry from most of the self-driving concepts we've seen before, swoopingly futuristic vehicles fit for a sci-fi movie.
