    Honda is teasing a Civic wagon concept for the Geneva Motor Show in March. The wagon concept according to Honda strongly hints at the production model which is expected to arrive later this year.

    The sketch shows the wagon will utilize the European Civic hatchback’s hidden rear door handles creating a almost two-door shooting brake look. The roofline is sloping which helps with the shooting brake look.

    We’ll have more information on the Civic Wagon Concept when the Geneva Motor Show starts. Before you ask, the Civic wagon will not be coming to the U.S.

    Civic Wagon Concept and the Next Generation NSX Concept Take Centre Stage at Honda's 2013 Geneva Motor Show Display

    6 February 2013

    Two new Honda Concept models will be making their European debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show showcasing an exciting future of new models and technology for the brand. The Civic Wagon concept will be lining up alongside the next generation NSX Concept and the CR-V featuring the new 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine to give a taste of what’s to come from Honda over the next couple of years.

    Honda will be taking the wraps off the Civic Wagon concept model which strongly hints at the design direction of the final production version.This new derivative will strengthen the Civic range and will be built at Honda’s manufacturing facility in Swindon.

    Evolution of Honda NSX Concept

    Also making its European debut is the new Honda NSX Concept which suggests a potential direction for the next-generation NSX’s interior design.

    The exterior design stays true to the original concept styling, maintaining its low and wide stance with the dynamic and alluring proportions that are highlighted by clean, modern and simple surfacing.

    CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC

    The CR-V is the next model in Honda’s European line up to benefit from the new Earth Dreams Technology engine series as it joins the Civic in offering the 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine. The CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will be available in two-wheel drive only, with manual transmission to provide an exceptional balance of performance and economy.

    The 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine is the lightest engine in its class and will help the CR-V to deliver energetic performance, agile handling and low running costs for customers. The CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC will also be built at Honda’s manufacturing facility in Swindon and will be available from Autumn 2013.

    The Honda Press Conference will take place at 13:15hrs CET on Tuesday 5th March on the Honda stand (stand number 4250).

    Interesting, very nice design. I can see it selling well in Europe.

    Course if the Politicians did not tax everything so freaking hard with the socialist we provide everything, they would see more sales, jobs growth and people going out and about and wanting CUV's / 4x4's. The European Union is destroying growth with the provide everything attitude.

      Fiat is bringing the Concept Centoventi to the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas.  The concept previews the next generation Panda and the name means 120 in Italian in honor of the brand's 120 year history.  The Panda is the mini-car platform used by the Fiat 500 in the U.S. 
      The Concept Centoventi is designed to be a "blank canvas" ready to be painted to suit owner's needs and desires at any time, without being stuck with the color chosen at purchase. It is produced in only one color and then the customer "paints" the vehicle using Fiat's 4U program that allows for four roof options, four bumper cover options, four wheel cover options, and four exterior wrappings.  Various interior options like storage compartments, seats, and child-restraint systems are interchangeable and installed in a plug-and-play fashion by the customer. 
      The powertrain is electrified and can be equipped with different batteries to vary the range from 60 miles to 300 miles. 
      The Concept Centoventi has a small screen in the windshield facing outward to display messages while a larger rear tailgate display can also display messages or while in motion, just the Fiat logo.

      Fiat Chrysler is bringing a slew of concepts to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that all feature some sort of electrification.
      The centerpiece of their display will be the 2020 Airflow Vision concept.  While not specifically branded as a Chrysler, the Airflow Vision does take the name of a full-size Chrysler model produced from 1934 - 1937.  FCA calls it a "sculptural design concept" that envisions the next generation of premium transportation.  The interior user experience is designed to be captivating. FCA put a lot of work into showing a sophisticated appearance that can be personalized and customized to individual needs. 
      The cabin offers multiple interfaces, one behind the steering wheel, two on the center console, one for the front passenger, and two more for the rear passengers. Information can be shared between the screens by swiping.  The interior is said to be the same size as the Chrysler Pacifica Plug-in and has a flat load floor. In spite of all that room, it only has 4 seats set up in a lounge chair fashion to maximize legroom, shoulder room, and storage space for each passenger. Premium suedes and leathers, along with ambient lighting make the ride a first-class experience. 
      The exterior of the Airflow Vision has an aggressive stance with bodywork reaching almost to the ground. The wheels hint at the use of electric motors, but no powertrain information was provided.

    • To be honest, he won more awards and stuff with the Rockies. He spent more years in Colorado. I want him in a s an Expo because his years as an Expo were great too. But maybe not as a Hall of Famer great. But rookie year and young and all. He did have 2 Gold Gloves with the Expos out of the 6 years he spent in Montreal...33%, but he did win 5 in Colorado. 5 out of the 10 years he spent there. 50% of the time he was there.  He also had 3 batting titles...in Colorado.   MVP of the league  while in Colorado. He was supposed to be a hockey goalie, but that never panned out. "Twas the Expos that scouted him...by chance. But the Expos organization always had the knack of finding such talent that no other in the League could ever do.    The Cards?   I always respected the Cards.  In baseball for me though, I HATE all other ball clubs.  Especially the Yankees, Red Sox, Braves, the Blue Jays, The A's...   But I have the utmost respect for the Yankees and the Red Sox.      The Cards, The Cubs, The Pirates, The Phillies, The Reds, The Giants, the Dodgers ... Yeah...teams like these I may not like...hate might be tooo strong of a sentiment, but these are teams that are...dare I say...likeable?   The Dodgers and the Giants...I kinda like their New York origins.  I may not like their California destination... So...I could see the Rockies as a choice for Walker.  I cant see the Cards though.   PS:  I HATE the Nationals...  NO! Not because the Expos moved there. But because they NEVER acknowledged the Montreal tie-in.  NO!!!  They dont absolutely have to acknowledge Montreal...  Rightfully so Ill say!!! BUT!!! In NO WAY should they also acknowledge Raines, Dawson, Carter, Guerrero as part of their history if that is the case. Carter gets inducted...no acknowledgement.  Dawson and then Raines...nothing...  Finally Guerrero gets in and all of a sudden, the Washington owners and fans want to be tied in with Montreal?    Why?   Because that ballclub now has 4 inductees?  PHOQUE OFF is what I say to them!    Im happy for him for that too...  I do not know about Colorado...but that statement for Montreal is 100000000000000000000000000%  FALSE!!! People in Montreal LOVED him.   First of all...CANADIAN.... Second of all...we lOVED our Expos. Every single one of them.   Listen to the Lyrics. The refrain...of all the Expos that played in Montreal for close to 40 years..."Larry Walk"  is mentioned... Says a lot about how Montreal fans feel for him.  Keep in mind that this Montreal song artist made this song in 2010.  Waaaaaay before Gary makes the HOF.  Waaaaay before the Expos might be returning back to Montreal.  This song was made shortly after the Expos left town.  "This one’s for the Kid and the Cat and the Hawk And this one’s for Grip, Larry Walk and the Rock This one’s for El Presidente, Mo and O-Cab and this one’s for Spaceman, Crow and Vlad"  
    • I remember watching this game live and his first at-bat in a Cardinals' uniform.  He was appreciated more in the 1.5 years here than he ever got in MTL or COL.  Check out 2hr, 12 min and 30 seconds in. Welcome to STL big boy!   
    • He should go in with the birds on the bat.  I'm very glad to have seen him here and glad he got to make a World Series appearance with us.  Also, I have NO CLUE how somebody couldn't vote for Jeter to be voted in. It should have been a 100% vote, hands-down.
