Honda Shows Why Euro-spec CR-V Is The Safest, Most Dynamic Ever

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/06/honda-shows-euro-spec-cr-v-safest-dynamic-ever/

Honda is gearing up for the launch of the Euro-spec CR-V, shedding more light into the engineering of its latest SUV that will go against models like the Skoda Kodiaq and Toyota RAV4.

The all-new CR-V claims it features the strongest and most sophisticated chassis in its history, offering improved safety and driver-focused handling. All this happens thanks to the new body construction that uses advanced lightweight and high-tensile materials.

Honda says it has tuned the new CR-V specifically to meet European standards, offering a fun-to-drive character and high comfort levels. The company’s optional Real Time AWD system is responsible for a “more dynamic cornering performance”,  sending up to 60 percent of the torque to the rear wheels.

The chassis also features the new Agile Handling Assist system (AHA), which is tailored to meet European standards. The new electronic stability system responds to steering inputs with “discreet assistance” for added safety and smoother, more predictable behavior on the road.

At the front there’s a MacPherson strut setup offering high lateral rigidity, while at the rear there’s a new multi-link suspension that delivers better stability, superior ride comfort and more linear handling.

The first examples of the Euro-spec CR-V are scheduled to arrive this Autumn, featuring a 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine mated either to a six-speed manual or an optional CVT gearbox, while a hybrid version will arrive in 2019.

Sources: 2019 HR-V adds Sport trim, loses 6MT option

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1356901

We've recently received the following information from sources in the dealer body concerning the mid-cycle model change (MMC) for the 2019 HRV.

The HR-V debuted 3 years ago as a 2016 model and now it’s time for the standard mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 model year. The big news for enthusiasts is that the HR-V will no longer be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission. A CVT is the only option going forward. This is understandable because apparently the take rate was really low for the 6MTs, and on top of that, the 6MT really didn’t pay any dividends when it came to adding any driving enjoyment. We were hoping that the HR-Vs sleepy 1.8L 4-cylinder (R18) engine would’ve been swapped out for a version of the turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder (L15B) that’s currently found under the hood of the latest Civics, Accords, and CR-Vs, but it appears that the HR-V will ride out this generation with the R18.

Another piece of news is that there’s also a new HR-V Sport trim which has been added, and this one seems to follow the formula of other Honda ‘Sport’ in blending a sort of value options package with an upgraded appearance package.

The HR-V Sport gets standard 18” wheels (exclusive to Sport), an 7” DisplayAudio system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a black roof liner, sport pedals (exclusive to Sport), active noise cancellation, standard roof rails, a leather wrapped steering wheel, leather wrapped shift knob, paddle shifters, front halogen fog lights and an extra USB port.

All trims will have LED daytime running lights and standard halogen projector headlights as well as a new cupholder design. 17” wheels are standard. Front-wheel-drive is standard in all trims (except Touring), with All-Wheel-Drive being optional.

EX trim levels and above get smart entry (one push start) with walkaway auto lock, Honda sensing, Lanewatch, moonroof, rear privacy glass, heated front seats, automatic climate control (single zone), XM and HD radio, side mirrors with turn indicators, fully automatic headlights, 2 tweeters, variable intermittent wipers, lighted vanity mirrors, chrome interior handle trim, chrome speaker rings, chrome air vent trim.

EX-L adds leather trimmed seats, steering wheel, shift knob, and door lining. In addition, the EX-L receives an automatically dimming rear view mirror.

The Touring model adds standard AWD, standard navigation to the DisplayAudio system, 8-way power driver’s seat, Homelink, LED headlights and LED foglights.

Lost for the 2019 model year are the audio system’s CD slot, HDMI port, and AUX jack.

We don't have any photos of the 2019 HR-V yet, but the Vezel has already been revealed and we expect the 2019 HR-V to look a lot like it.

Spied on the Street! 2019 Pilot and Pilot PHEV mule

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1359760

Our friendly automotive spy lensman from the midwest has again captured the following 2019 Pilot subjects testing in the wilds of Ohio. Included below are the comments from Spiedbilde.

Today we got up close with the 2019 Honda Pilot, and got our first look at a mule for the PHEV version.

The refreshed Pilot will adapt styling cues from the recently on-sale Accord and Odyssey. Up front, expect to see a more aggressive lower front fascia, new grille, and a revised set of LED headlights. Around back, look for the taillights to crib the Accord, along with a revised tailgate and lower rear fascia.

The Pilot is expected to add a hybrid or plug-in hybrid option for 2019 that will be shared with the Odyssey. This system will be a version of the two-motor hybrid powertrain currently used in the Accord Hybrid. Base power should still come from the 3.5L V6 DI.

Expect to see the 2019 Honda Pilot later this year.

Honda reveals refreshed 2019 HR-V and Pilot

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1360524

Honda has just issued the following release concerning the MMC updates to the Pilot and HR-V models, both set to go on sale next month.

Refreshed 2019 Pilot and HR-V to Further Strengthen Award-Winning Honda SUV Lineup


Jun 28, 2018 - TORRANCE, Calif.

    Pilot gets more aggressive exterior styling and new technologies
    HR-V gains two new trims, updated styling and all-new technology
    Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistive technologies now available or standard equipment on all Honda nameplates, with addition of HR-V


Honda will celebrate summer with the launch of significantly refreshed versions of its 8-passenger Pilot SUV and subcompact HR-V SUV, both featuring freshened styling, noteworthy powertrain refinements and major connected-car technology upgrades, including available new Display Audio systems with a physical volume knob, and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. In addition, Pilot and HR-V also benefit from the expanded application of Honda Sensing®, which will now be standard equipment on all Pilots, and on EX and higher grades of HR-V. The new Pilot and HR-V will go on-sale at Honda dealerships on July 16 and July 24, respectively.

With the addition of Honda Sensing® to the HR-V, Honda's advanced safety and driver-assistive technology will now be available or standard equipment on every nameplate in the Honda lineup, as the company moves toward its goal of 100 percent standard application of Honda Sensing® to all vehicles sold in the U.S. by 2022.

"The continued fortification of the Honda light truck lineup with the refreshed 2019 Pilot and HR-V further enhances our already award-winning lineup of Honda SUVs," said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division. "With application to HR-V, Honda Sensing is now available or standard on every Honda model, which is both an incredible benefit to our customers and increased value over the competition."

Honda-brand light-truck sales are up 1.9 percent this year to 300,159 units through the end of May as Honda targets a fifth consecutive yearly sales record in 2018. For the first time in the brand's history, Honda light trucks are expected to outsell Honda passenger cars this year on the way to another all-time light-truck sales record. Honda-brand light-truck sales growth is led by a 41 percent jump in sales of Pilot through the end of May on improved supply resulting from a major increase in Pilot production at the company's Lincoln, Alabama plant, which now produces Pilot on a dedicated production line, alongside the Ridgeline pickup and Odyssey minivan, manufactured on a second production line.

All Honda SUVs, minivans and pickups are produced in North America using domestic and globally-sourced parts, with more than 60 percent in the U.S. at plants in Lincoln, Alabama, in Greensburg, Indiana and in East Liberty, Ohio. The Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline recently took three of the top 10 spots in Cars.com's 2018 American-Made Index. The company will add production of CR-V, America's best-selling SUV over the past 22 years, to a fourth North American plant, in Marysville, Ohio, later this year.



2019 Honda Pilot

The 2019 Pilot brings a long list of upgrades to Honda's award-winning 8-passenger SUV, including more aggressive exterior styling, an available new hands-free power tailgate and significant refinements to its 9-speed automatic transmission (available in Touring and Elite trims). Major available technology upgrades include 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi, a larger Rear Entertainment System with Blu-Ray™ and streaming video capability, Honda's innovative CabinTalk™ in-car PA system and smartphone-enabled CabinControl™ app, along with a new Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, over-the-air updates and a volume knob.

Consistent with Honda's previously announced plan to make Honda Sensing® standard equipment on all models and trims within the next four years, the 2019 Pilot adopts the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technology as standard equipment on all grades.

The many upgrades reinforce Pilot's fundamental capabilities while augmenting the state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly character that has made it one of the most popular midsize 3-row SUVs. Pilot also remains one of the few models in the segment to offer 8-passenger seating. Full details of the 2019 Pilot refresh will be available when it goes on sale July 16.

2019 HR-V

The 2019 Honda HR-V expands its appeal as a versatile and sporty 5-door subcompact SUV with the addition of new Sport and Touring trims, refreshed styling, new technology including an available new Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration and a more refined driving experience. The freshened HR-V also benefits from refinements to its standard Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT) and available Real Time all-wheel drive system, additional sound deadening features and the addition of variable-ratio electric power steering.

The 2019 HR-V is also available for the first time with Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistive technology, standard on EX and higher trims. The addition of Honda Sensing® to HR-V means all Honda models, from the fun and affordable Fit to the amazingly capable Ridgeline pickup, are available with Honda's advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda Sensing® is a more robust system of technologies than key competitors and includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Full details of the 2019 HR-V refresh will be available when it goes on sale July 24.

2019 Pilot gets upgraded with standard LED headlights and "Telematics"

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1356915

The 3rd generation Pilot hit the streets 3 years ago as a 2016 model, and like the HR-V it is due for its mid-cycle model change (MMC) for the 2019 model year. We’ve received some information about the changes through some of our contacts in the dealer body. The powertrain seems to be the same, with a standard 280hp V6 and either a 6-speed or 9-speed automatic transmission, depending upon trim level.

We’ve seen some spy shots of the Pilot during testing, but they really didn’t reveal much, if anything about what’s coming. We’ve heard that the headlights and grille have been restyled to fall more inline with the current corporate face. New wheels and updated exterior trim (possibly including revised taillights) are also expected. Inside the Pilot, we were told to expect an upgrade to higher quality materials.

Following are the trims that will be offered for 2019

    LX
    EX
    EX-L
    EX-L with Navi and RES
    Touring
    Touring-7
    Elite



Let’s start with the LX. For 2019 Honda Sensing is standard on all Pilot models. We know that it won’t include the low-speed follow feature on the LX trim but the info we currently have is a little unclear on whether it will be available on the upper trim levels. LED headlights (low beams) are also standard on all Pilot trim levels, as are 18” wheels, the (carryover) 280hp 3.5L V6 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), auto up/down windows for driver and passenger, and automatic high beams.

The EX adds blind spot indicators, an 8-way power driver’s seat, one-touch 2nd row seat operation (new for EX trims in 2019), LED fog lights, rear HVAC with rear controls, heated front seats (new for EX in 2019), smart entry, remote engine start (one way transmitter), dual-zone automatic HVAC, Display Audio with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, XM and HD radio, heated body-colore exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals, body-colored exterior door handles, cross traffic monitor, an extra 12V power outlet, a conversation mirror, and illuminated visor vanity mirrors.

Stepping up to the EX-L, you get a leather trimmed interior, a power moonroof, a power tailgate, 4-way power passenger seat, auto dimming rearview mirror, a memory function for the driver seat and door mirrors, 2nd row sunshades, homelink, and 2 extra USB ports (located in the 2nd row).

The EX-L with Navigation and Rear Entertainment system (RES), obviously adds a navigation feature to the DisplayAudio system, while the rear entertainment system is upgraded with Blu-ray and streaming functionality. A 110V AC power outlet is also part of the RES package.

The Touring models get everything in the EX-L Navi/Res package, plus 20” (can you feel the curb rash?) wheels, a 9-speed automatic transmission, parking sensors, heated 2nd row seats, a standard roof rack, FULL LED headlights (high and low-beam), paddle shifters, handsfree access power tailgate, 10 speaker premium audio system, 3 zone ambient lighting system, auto stop/start system, chrome exterior door handles, chrome accented door garnishes. And new for 2019, the Pilot Touring is getting a telematics system. If we were to guess, this sounds like the next-generation HondaLink telematics system that launched with the 2018 Accord Touring models. Here's the relevant text from the Accord Press Kit

The Accord also offers the next-generation of HondaLink™ telematics with new capabilities including emergency roadside assistance, remote locking/unlocking and engine start, stolen vehicle tracking, remote diagnostics, geofencing, speed tracking and more.



The “Touring-7” designation means that this trim level swaps out the 2nd row bench seat of the Pilot in favor of 2 captain’s chairs, reducing the passenger capacity from a count of 8 to 7. When opting for this trim level you also gain one more zone of ambient lighting.

The Pilot Elite starts with the Touring-7 equipment, and then adds ventilated front seats, auto-dimming side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, rain sensing wipers, wireless phone charger, power folding exterior door mirrors, and 3rd row floor mats.

This 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec is wearing an exclusive new shade of blue

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1356937

Interestingly I was just chatting with someone over the weekend who was asking me whether or not the RDX would be offered in the "nice blue" color that the TLX A-Spec gets. The blue on the TLX A-Spec is called Still Night Blue Pearl, and was borrowed from Honda (Accord Coupe), but we've recently learned that Acura is launching a new shade of blue with the 2019 Acura RDX. Acura calls it Apex Blue Pearl*, and it will only be available on A-Spec models. We should have a lot more photos and information about the 2019 RDX in the next week or so, so be sure to stay tuned!

*UPDATE: Somebody in the comments has pointed out that Honda had a shade of blue with this same name for the S2000 CR, but this is apparently a NEW Apex Blue Pearl, and not the same color as the blue that was applied to the S2000 CR.

The photo below was grabbed from an Acura Tweet we spotted today.

TORRANCE, CA., May 29, 2018 – Debuting the next-generation of Acura design, performance and technology, and the model’s first-ever A-Spec variant, the all-new 2019 Acura RDX goes on-sale at Acura dealerships nationwide on June 1.

Priced the same as the outgoing model equipped with AcuraWatch™ (now standard), the new RDX is thousands less than comparably equipped European competitors.

The all-new RDX is the first in a new generation of products developed from the ground up around Acura's Precision Crafted Performance brand direction, and is the top-selling nameplate in the compact luxury SUV segment3 since RDX launched in 2006, with cumulative U.S. sales exceeding 375,000 vehicles. The Ohio-made RDX is built on an all-new Acura-exclusive platform featuring a new VTEC® Turbo powertrain, the segment's only 10-speed transmission and the (available) next generation of Acura Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD™).

RDX Design
The 2019 RDX is the first all-new model to fully express Acura's new exterior and interior design direction that first debuted in the Acura Precision Concept and Acura Precision Cockpit. The new RDX boasts a more premium and athletic stance with a longer wheelbase, shortened front overhang and wider track. The new design showcases Acura's signature diamond pentagon grille, next-generation Jewel Eye™ LED headlights and NSX-inspired front air curtains.

Inside, the new RDX impresses with sumptuous interior appointments, including available authentic brushed aluminum, stainless steel and Olive Ash wood accents, intricately sculpted sport seats, an ultra-wide panoramic moonroof and a high-deck floating center console that showcases the new True Touchpad Interface and the NSX-inspired drive mode dial.

With its 2.6-inch longer wheelbase and new packaging, the RDX provides expanded cabin space with class-leading rear legroom, a fully-flat rear floor, and a larger (+3.4 cubic feet) cargo area with an additional 1.7 cubic-feet of compartmented underfloor storage.

RDX Performance
The 2019 RDX is powered by a direct-injected and turbocharged 2.0-liter, 16-valve powerplant with DOHC VTEC® valvetrain mated to the segment's only 10-speed automatic transmission (10AT). Peak output of 272 horsepower (SAE net) and 280 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net) bests RDX's key competitors, including Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Volvo, and delivers 40 percent more low-end torque than the outgoing 3.5L V6 for powerful acceleration.

The all-new RDX redesign also heralds the return of Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) to the RDX nameplate. This next-generation of Acura SH-AWD features improved rear-wheel torque capacity, up 40 percent over the previous-generation system, further amplifying the performance enhancing capabilities of Acura's dynamic torque vectoring technology. Now, up to 70% of torque can be distributed to the rear wheels, and up to 100% of that torque can be distributed to either the right-rear or left-rear wheel, creating outstanding control and agility. SH-AWD is among the most advanced all-wheel-drive systems available in a luxury automobile and the 2019 RDX is the first model to utilize this new generation.

All RDX models also come equipped with Acura's Integrated Dynamics System – with Snow, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes – providing the driver with an expanded range of dynamic experiences to suit their mood and the driving environment. The system interacts with the Drive-by-Wire™ throttle, 10-speed transmission, electric power steering, SH-AWD (if equipped) with torque vectoring, traction control, Active Damper System (on Advance grades) and Active Sound Control to provide a wider range of driving experiences and dynamic capabilities based on the needs of the driver and driving conditions.

RDX Technology
The 2019 RDX provides a more premium and tech-savvy cabin experience with the first application of Acura's True Touchpad Interface™, an all-new design that combines the advantages of both conventional touchscreen and remote-based approaches. The True Touchpad Interface™ features a 10.2-inch full-HD center display mounted high atop the center console, close to the driver's natural line of sight, and a center console-mounted touchpad that is precisely mapped, one-to-one, with the action on the center display – the world's first use of "absolute positioning" in the driving environment. (For more information on how the new True Touchpad Interface™, please watch a brief video here.)

The new RDX also marks the debut of the available Acura ELS Studio 3D™ premium audio, a 16-channel, 710-watt system featuring four ultra-slim Highline™ ceiling-mounted speakers. Another Acura first is a new natural language voice recognition system, which allows for more intuitive voice control of major features and functions, including commands for the available embedded Acura Navigation System. Also new is an available 10.5-inch full-color interactive Head-Up Display, which puts customizable information displays, including audio, phone, AcuraWatch alerts, turn-by-turn navigation and more, in the driver's line of sight.

Finally, the RDX features the latest generation of AcuraLink™, which features in-vehicle 4GLTE Wi-Fi, available over-the-air software updates and a wide array of cloud-based services, including emergency roadside assistance, remote locking/unlocking and engine start, stolen vehicle tracking, remote diagnostics, geofencing, speed tracking and more.

Development and Manufacturing
The 2019 Acura RDX is the first RDX to be designed and developed in America, designed at the Acura Design Studio in Los Angeles, California, and developed in Raymond, Ohio. Like its predecessor, the new RDX is manufactured in East Liberty, Ohio5. The 2019 RDX's 2.0-liter VTEC® turbo engine is produced at the company's Anna, Ohio engine plant6. Its new SH-AWD™ system is manufactured at the company's Russels Point, Ohio transmission plant6, and its 10-speed automatic transmission is manufactured in the company's Tallapoosa, Georgia6.

It's Official: Honda to supply Red Bull Racing in Formula One from 2019

https://www.vtec.net/news/news-item?news_item_id=1359642

It's long been talked about, but now we know that the rumors have come true. Beginning with the 2019 season, Red Bull will join its junior team Toro Rosso as a customer/works team for Honda's F1 efforts. Honda will be supplying two teams for the first time since their inauspicious return to F1 with McLaren in 2015.

Honda's results with Toro Rosso have been mixed so far, but in general the team has shown promising progress, with Honda's engines showing dramatic improvements in reliability and performance compared to the prior 3 seasons.
