The Honda Civic, America’s top retail selling compact car for the past five years1 and the most popular vehicle with U.S. millennials2, receives a complete redesign with a decidedly sporty, sophisticated and youthful new look, along with the first application of Honda turbo engine technology to a U.S. model. To celebrate the unveiling of this epic Civic redesign, the 2016 Civic Sedan will be joined onstage by the vehicle’s Los Angeles-based design team, and on-the-rise alternative rockers Night Riots (www.nightriots.com), who will give an electric live performance as part of the reveal. Fans that tune in also will be introduced to the story behind the music; how The Power of Dreams connects Night Riots – known for their anthemic, synth-heavy dance-rock –with the revamped 2016 Civic lineup.

The Sept. 16 reveal of the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan follows the introduction of the ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the New York International Auto Show in April, and kicks off the launch of this completely reimagined lineup of 10th-Generation Civic models. With the most diverse range of models in Civic history, the new Civic lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models, along with the first-ever five-door Civic hatchback for the U.S. market, as well as an all-new, radically powerful Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup.

Further details about the all-new 2016 Honda Civic Sedan will be revealed on Sept. 16 at 6:15 p.m. PST at www.YouTube.com.

The first-generation Civic debuted in America in 1972, and Civic has played a leading role in advancing fuel efficiency, small-car safety performance, design, technology and fun-to-drive performance over nine generations. American car buyers have purchased more than 10 million Civics over the course of 43 years and Civic has been manufactured in North America since 1986, with cumulative production in North America approaching 9 million units.

In 2014, more than 97 percent of the Honda and Acura automobiles sold in the U.S. were produced in North America.

About Night Riots
Night Riots has set the alternative underworld ablaze and risen into the forefront of modern music. After the tremendous success of their self released EP “Young Lore” Night Riots signed on with Sumerian Records. On January 20th, 2015 they debuted their EP “Howl” the Eric Palmquist-produced (Bad Suns, Trash Talk, Waaves, Mars Volta) album hit #17 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, and shortly after skyrocketed to #1 on SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Alt 18 Countdown.  Their single “Contagious” quickly broke into top 25 on the Billboard Alternative Radio Charts.

Night Riots orchestrate atmospheric anthems, moody and full of yearning. They have been likened to a modern day Cure with early U2 bravado. Frontman Travis Hawley spent five years of his youth in England before moving to a small California coastal town with only one street light; where he met guitarists Nick Fotinakes and Matt DePauw, bassist Mikel Van Kranenburg, and drummer Rico Rodriguez. Now heralded by the likes of Rolling Stone, Billboard, MTV, FUSE, Huffington Post, KROQ, NYLON, Filter and more, Night Riots have delivered a captivating sound that is timeless and transcendent of genre barriers.

Catch the Debut of the 2016 Acura ILX at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

Big Changes in Store for Acura’s Sport Sedan. While Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda are not Acura dealers, we think this is pretty newsworthy in the Honda world!

Acura is preparing to unveil a substantially new 2016 ILX at the L.A. Auto Show next month as the brand aims to raise the stakes again in the entry-premium sedan segment. Already bringing in more buyers under the age of 35 to the segment than any other entry-premium model, the new 2016 ILX stands to solidify and broaden its appeal with a comprehensive update that includes a potent new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling, and substantially upgraded interior design.

Much like its hot new stable mate—the brand new TLX—the 2016 ILX will bring a sharper performance focus while delivering a greater set of high-value comfort, convenience and safety features that consumers desire in the increasingly competitive entry-luxury field.

Catch the unveiling of the ILX on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in the Acura booth at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Honda Unveils New Compact SUV, the HR-V

Honda HR-V Compact SUV to Join All-New 2015 Fit as Honda Expands Small Car Lineup
  • All-new HR-V will launch this winter with sleek and expressive styling
  • 2015 Fit resets segment benchmark with class-leading interior space, top fuel economy ratings and standard features
  • Next-generation ASIMO also makes appearance at New York Auto Show

Honda will continue to expand its lineup of small cars aimed at the next generation of buyers with the launch of the 2015 Fit subcompact car and the all-new compact SUV, the Honda HR-V  that will come to market this winter. Together the Fit and HR-V will represent a significant growth opportunity for Honda in the U.S., with both models produced at the automaker’s newest North American manufacturing facility located in Celaya, Mexico, which allows for production flexibility to meet market demand.

“Both Fit and HR-V demonstrate how great things can come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda. “Together these models also represent Honda’s step-by-step expansion of our production in the region, which has been key to our success in America for more than 30 years.”

All-New HR-V Compact SUV 
Honda released the first official photos of the U.S.-bound HR-V today at the New York International Auto Show. With sleek styling and expressive character lines, the HR-V is anticipated to launch this winter. Built on the same global compact platform that underpins the Fit, the HR-V will feature a versatile and spacious interior thanks to a unique center tank layout. The HR-V will be equipped with the Honda-exclusive Magic Seat®, which allows for multiple seating configurations and the ability to fold the second row seat completely flat for added cargo space. The HR-V will serve as the entry point to the Honda light truck lineup, positioned below the CR-V in both price and size. Additional details about the HR-V will be announced later this year.
