Peugeot Pepper: 5 Automakers’ Curious Side Businesses

Peugeot Pepper: 5 Automakers’ Curious Side Businesses

You’re probably aware that Japanese companies often have diverse product lines. Among other things, Sony makes televisions, speakers, and video-game consoles. Yamaha goes further, making everything from pianos to golf carts. While we recognize companies like BMW, Tesla, and Volkswagen specifically for their cars, many automakers carry on side projects, too. You’re most likely familiar with Honda’s motorcycles, boat engines, and lawn mowers (not to mention its cars), but perhaps the company’s most impressive side project is ASIMO. A humanoid robot, its name is an acronym for “Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility.” Coming from a company known for the…Read entire story

Can Honda Recover After Falling From Grace?

Honda, once a formidable force in the auto industry and a maker of bulletproof cars to which consumers flocked, has fallen from its mighty throne.

Super Bowl 50: Watch Every Car Ad from the Big Game!

Super Bowl 50: Watch Every Car Ad from the Big Game!

-Last year’s Super Bowl saw a decline in automotive advertising, with only nine scheduled for the Big Game. In hindsight, that doesn’t seem like a misstep. Given how 2015 shattered car-sales records, the automakers made out okay avoiding big-budget ads and expensive airtime. Of course, we car fans missed the extra dash of automotive goodness during the Super Bowl, and luckily for ad-lovers, this year is shaping up to be a bit different—nine spots already have been revealed in advance. There surely will be at least a few that surprise on game day, too, including expected spots from …Read entire story

2015 Honda Fit Long-Term Wrap: Our 40,000-Mile Torture Test Is Over

–Every Monday, each of us selects the cars we are going to drive for the week from those available in the office lot. Some weeks are better than ­others.
