Honda Fit Child Seat Review: http://youtu.be/lANyqN0R3aM
Join me as I take a deep dive into the 2015 Honda Fit. Honda's subcompact
has been completely redesigned for the 2015 model year bringing a new
engine, transmission, interior and infotainment to one of the best values
in the segment.
Up front the Fit's new nose is better integrated with the rest of the Honda
family and out back the LED tail lamps and broad "hips" are reminiscent of
the Volvo C30.
The new 1.5L EarthDreams four cylinder engine and a Continuously Variable
Transmission team up to deliver fuel economy that rivals most hybrids and
acceleration times near the top of the pack.
Overall the Fit is one of the best cars I have driven this year and one of
the best values as well. If the Versa Note, Sonic, Fiesta or Rio5 are on
your shopping list, you'd do well to check out the Fit before making any

The New Model Honda Jazz
The popular Honda Jazz has been given a refresh, with a range of
enhancements to both looks, features and driving dynamics. The well loved
CVT automatic gearbox also makes a welcome return, the first time in the
new Honda Jazz and we're pleased to report it's been improved still
While the revised car is just as cleverly packaged, fresh styling gives the
Honda Jazz a new appearance. New front and rear designed bumpers are the
main parts to have influenced the look of the new car.

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.
