Honda Civic - It All Starts Here

Peace out Las Vegas! My ass is beat! Every year, SEMA caps off a long season of multiple event series and all the travel, all the new records and all the new shit. It's what we thrive on and although SEMA is the biggest event of the year, it provides us with a bunch of cool stuff and often signifies the next era. I'm glad it's over, at least for now.

The biggest buzz over the past few months has been the introduction of the all-new Honda Civic. Is it going to give our industry a so called "much needed lift?" In my opinion the industry is thriving as much as any other in its adolescence, but I'm not only interested in counting dollars like the so-called "experts." Regardless, Honda seemed to of finally put the Civic back on track as the new generation seems to offer the same performance and cosmetic potential as its earlier ancestors. Several aftermarket companies attending this year's show managed to get stuck into the new platform and it was readily apparent that the NB, as it's dubbed, delivers a ton of potential. In factory form, the Civic is already far superior to the previous version and, as an avid Honda fan, this provides some serious peace of mind. This time, the Civic is finally back. As for anyone looking for a lift, if 300-horsepower four-wheel-drive platforms such as the EVO or Sti, or the 350Z aren't quite enough, then the fact that the Civic is really good this time around might put a sparkle back in your eye. Several of the modified new Civics looked fantastic and with a healthy bout of performance parts fresh out of the R&D departments it looks like Honda is back in business.

The vibe this year was a strong one overall. A lot of great new stuff coming at you over the next few months and plenty of sick new rides for us to play around with. Enjoy the coverage and the issue, I'm going to sleep.

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

That's about what the Honda Civic Type R makes and nearly twice as much power as we got from the last Mini JCW GP back in 2012

Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
