The 2018 Honda Odyssey is like CES on wheels

You don't need to be driven by Waymo's autonomous car to find a high-tech minivan, with Honda's 2018 Odyssey cranking up the gadgetry for the Detroit Auto Show this year. The new minivan not only promises more power and refinement, but the ability to peek into the back via the infotainment system, get online with a baked-in hotspot, and even clean up with an integrated vacuum cleaner. It's enough to make the school run seem like CES.

Honda’s Riding Assist Motorcycle keeps itself upright without gyroscopes

While the NeuV system may have been the star of Honda's CES 2017 demonstrations, the car company also had another prototype on-hand that shouldn't be overlooked. Say hello to Honda's Riding Assist Motorcycle, a concept bike that keeps itself upright when its at rest. We've seen motorcycles capable of such a feat before, but there's one important difference in the Honda Riding Assist (which is currently its fitting - if not a little boring - name).

Honda NeuV concept has an AI assistant with an “emotion engine”

Honda NeuV concept has an AI assistant with an “emotion engine”

Along with virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, artificial intelligence has become one of the biggest obsessions in the technology industry in recent years. Even car makers are getting into the game as well, offloading some of the control, and even some of the responsibility, to computer-driven agents. Honda's latest concept vehicle, the NeuV, is perhaps the embodiment of how far car makers are willing to go in mixing AI and cars. In addition to be a self-driving electric vehicle, the NeuV has a smart assistant that can "read" your emotions and even earn you money on the sides.

Honda and Waymo may team up on self-driving cars

Honda and Waymo, the autonomous car company spun off from Google, are in talks that could potentially see future Honda cars get Waymo-powered self-driving abilities. Discussions are underway between Honda R&D - the Japanese automaker's research and development arm - and Waymo, Honda confirmed today. Although initially that would likely lead to another expansion of the Waymo fleet, beyond that it could mean far more advanced driver-assistance systems in Honda cars.

Honda’s first Clarity Fuel Cell cars reach hydrogen-loyal drivers

Honda has delivered the first of its Clarity Fuel Cell cars, with six drivers picking up the keys to their new, hydrogen-powered steeds.

2017 Honda CR-V First Drive: Are you ready for “Beautility”?

2017 Honda CR-V First Drive: Are you ready for “Beautility”?

To describe the CR-V as a success for Honda is to damn it with faint praise. Since its arrival in 1997, nearly four million have sold in the US. In fact, the CR-V is the country's top-selling SUV, and it helped Honda's truck sales go from little more than a rounding error to almost half of the vehicles moving off dealer forecourts each year.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback First Drive

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback First Drive

Launching a hatchback in a country traditionally skeptical about the 5-door might seem an unenviable challenge, but Honda sees the 2017 Civic Hatchback as an opportunity to reframe the body-style as more about sport than boring practicality. Third in the 10th generation Civic line-up to reach the US, the new Civic Hatchback targets a small but growing subsection of compact car buyers: Honda says they're image-oriented, usually male, and relying on their daily-drivers to keep up with an active, outdoor lifestyle. That makes it the perfect place to launch the new Sport and Sport Touring trims in the Civic range.

5 ways the 2017 Honda CR-V beats the old best-selling SUV

Messing with a working formula can be dangerous, but Honda believes it has the recipe to beat its best-selling SUV with this, the all-new 2017 CR-V. Introducing a turbocharged engine for the first time to the crossover, borrowed from Honda's latest Civic, the 2017 CR-V also ticks the next-gen infotainment boxes with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as options. The Japanese automaker is also promising a nice bump in economy numbers, though we'll have to wait to find out exactly how much.

2016 Honda CR-V Review: Current King of the compact SUVs

2016 Honda CR-V Review: Current King of the compact SUVs

Sizzle might sell sports cars, but a much more conservative design philosophy guides the hottest segment of the automotive market: small SUVs. In fact, the top three best-selling sport-utility vehicles in the country also happen to be the among the least flashy options you'll find in any given showroom - and leading them all is the 2016 Honda CR-V.

Not every new car is a success, and over time even the most intriguing models run the risk of being surpassed by more interesting offerings from other companies.

The 5 Best Compact SUVs Under $30,000

Small crossovers and SUVs are among the most popular automobiles on the market, and it's really no surprise. Practical and versatile, with enough storage space and passenger room to go above and beyond the day-to-day needs of most families, yet without the stodgy image of a minivan, sport-utility vehicles and their closely-related crossover cousins continue to do big business for almost every brand.
