Better, not bigger, the completely new Honda Accord lineup includes Sedan and Coupe models powered by 4-cylinder, V-6 and hybrid powertrains, teamed to manual, automatic and continuously variable transmission (CVT) options. The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan goes on sale September 19, 2012, with the Coupe to follow on October 15, 2012. An all-new, two-motor 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Sedan is scheduled to debut in early 2013, followed by a conventional hybrid based on the same powertrain architecture in the summer of 2013.
Using the most high-strength steel in the model's history, the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe bodies combine sophisticated and athletic styling with remarkable aerodynamic streamlining. Revised Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structures improve frontal crash safety, making the all-new Accord one of few midsize offerings expected to excel in the upcoming small-overlap frontal barrier crash test.
All-new Earth Dreams™ powertrains include the first U.S. application of Honda's next-generation 2.4-liter direct-injected 4-cylinder engine. The 2013 Accord Sedan and Coupe will also offer a more powerful and efficient V-6, and in early 2013, an all-new two-motor 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) Sedan will debut. Four transmissions are available, including the first-ever application of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models, a six-speed automatic on V-6 models, and unique 6-speed manual transmissions on 2.4-liter 4-cylinder models and the 3.5-liter V-6 Coupe. Fuel efficiency is the best ever for an Accord in the EPA Midsize class, with 4-cylinder models earning up to an EPA 36 mpg highway rating1 and V-6 models getting up to an EPA 34 mpg highway rating.1
Other new Accord technologies include the first application of the all-new cloud-based HondaLink™ system, which lets drivers put away their smartphones and still stay connected to the people, music and social media they love. Also debuting on the 2013 Accord is the exclusive available Honda LaneWatch™ blind-spot display, which uses a camera system mounted on the passenger mirror for an enhanced view of the passenger-side roadway. The all-new 2013 Honda Accord also receives a rearview camera and an Expanded View Driver's Mirror as standard equipment.
► Renault Clio 4 on the Road
Since the launch of the original model in 1990, some 11.5 million Clios
have been sold in more than 115 countries. Today, a new chapter in Clio's
history is about to be written with the unveiling of the fourth-generation
New Energy TCe 90 petrol engine
New Clio is the first Renault model to feature the new three-cylinder
petrol turbocharged Energy TCe 90
engine. This is the first three-cylinder powerplant ever produced by
Renault and, from launch, will provide a remarkable balance between driving
pleasure and fuel economy:
- This three-cylinder, turbocharged
900cc unit comes with Stop&Start and delivers the performance of a
normally-aspirated 1.4-litre powerplant,
- Peak power of 90hp at 5,000rpm,
- An ultralow-inertia turbo for
satisfying response from low engine speeds: 135Nm at 2,500rpm (90 percent
of peak torque available from 1,650rpm),
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios and fuel consumption
of 4.3 litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 99g/km ,
- A 21 percent fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savingc compared to the
TCe 100 it replaces.
New diesel Energy dCi 90
The latest addition to the Energy family is a new 90hp version of the 1.5
dCi, equipped with Stop&Start:
- A four-cylinder 1.5-litre engine with 220Nm of torque available from
1,750rpm, an increase of 20Nm over the current dCi 90,
- Peak power of 90hp at 4,000rpm,
- An economy-optimised version with taller gear ratios which also qualifies
for the Renault eco2 signature with fuel consumption of just 3.2
litres/100km, equivalent to CO2 emissions 83g/kmc.
New TCe 120, paired with six-speed EDC automatic transmission
New Clio will be available with the new, dynamic TCe 120 engine mated to
six-speed EDC transmission (Efficient Dual Clutch), a first for Renault in
the B segment:
- A four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the performance of a
normally-aspirated 1.6 engine,
- Direct fuel injection and turbocharging for peak power of 120hp and 190Nm of
torque from 1,750rpm.
This engine is currently in the process of being homologated and will
become available in the first half of 2013. It will be among the most
powerful, yet most economical engines in its class.
Along with the availability of EDC dual clutch transmission for the dCi 90
engine in the first half of 2013, New Clio will mark a further step in
expanding access to the driving pleasure and seamless gearshifts delivered
by this responsive and frugal automatic transmission.
BMW Concept Active Tourer
The new BMW Concept Active Tourer combines compact dimensions
and an attractive, sporty design with hallmark BMW quality. With an
exterior length of 4,350 millimetres, a width of 1,834 millimetres and a
total height of 1,560 millimetres, the BMW Concept Active Tourer is geared
towards customers of the premium segment who appreciate a high level of
comfort, a raised seating position and a generous amount of space.
The BMW Concept Active Tourer will also be attractive to families who
attach importance to functionality and versatility as well as lifestyle and
A long wheelbase of 2,670 millimetres, a high roof line and a compact
transverse engine with front-wheel drive make it possible to create a
generously sized interior. The spacious load compartment of the BMW Concept
Active Tourer provides fully-fledged everyday suitability since the
batteries of the hybrid drive are housed entirely underneath the load
The drive of the BMW Concept Active Tourer follows the BMW Group's
pioneering philosophy of sustainable mobility. The drive technology of all
BMW plug-in hybrid models and electrically powered BMW i models bears the
designation BMW eDrive, a term which includes all electric drive
The BMW Concept Active Tourer has been designed as a so-called plug-in
hybrid - ideally combining the benefits of electric drive with those of a
classic combustion engine. The plug-in hybrid (PHEV = Plug-in-Hybrid
Electric Vehicle) will have a particularly important role to play in
future. This is because plug-in hybrid vehicles normally have a range of
well over 20 kilometres when run on electricity and can therefore be used
efficiently for both short and long trips as well as in mixed mode. In the
case of the BMW Concept Active Tourer, a state-of-the-art 1.5-litre petrol
engine from the BMW Group Efficient Dynamics family of engines interacts
perfectly with a synchronous electric motor.
The combustion engine of the new BMW Concept Active Tourer is a new
cutting-edge 1.5-litre engine with BMW TwinPower turbo Technology. Derived from the multiple
award-winning 6-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower turbo Technology, it combines the latest
generation of High Precision Injection with the fully variable valve
control system VALVETRONIC and ultra-modern turbocharging. BMW TwinPower turbo Technology will be used in all power units
of the BMW Group's Efficient Dynamics engine family in the future - not
least because it does not depend on total capacity or number of cylinders.
The new 3-cylinder engine in the BMW Concept Active Tourer is one of the
first representatives of this new generation of engines. The compact
in-line engine constitutes an exemplary combination of dynamic performance
The new BMW TwinPower turbo 3-cylinder
offers character-specific benefits: running smoothness, revving power,
spontaneous response and a dynamic, sporty sound. Since there are no first
and second-order inertia forces, it offers an especially high level of
comfort in terms of noise and vibration. The level of roll torque is lower
than that of a 4-cylinder and is compensated for by a single counterbalance
shaft. Among other things, this helps keep the engine extremely
smooth-running in the low engine speed range, too.

Its richness of expression is greatly increased by an extended range of
colour and material combinations, both to exterior and interior, which will
allow each customer to construct 'their own' RCZ.This increase in emotional
power will continue next year with a 1.6 THP 260bhp version with enhanced
sportiness, previewed by the 'RCZ R Concept' unveiled at the 2012 Paris
► 2013 VW Golf 7 - Design Animation
Indeed, the latest Golf is up to 220 pounds lighter than the outgoing car,
thanks to careful focus on weight savings in all aspects of the car's
construction, from the electrical architecture through to the engines and
the body-in-white. The air conditioning unit is, for example, six pounds
lighter than the old car's; the seats have shed 15 pounds; and the
body-in-white is 51 pounds lighter. One major reason for the bodyshell's
weight loss is the extensive use of high- and ultra-high strength steels.
The share of the high-strength steels overall has gone from 66 percent in
the previous Golf to 80 percent in the new one. Of this, the share of
ultra-high-strength steel has gone from six to 28 percent.
One benefit of lowering the Golf's weight is better fuel economy: the
European-market 1.4 TSI® that uses a 140-horsepower, turbocharged, 1.4-liter engine fitted with
cylinder de-activation gets a European Cycle combined fuel consumption
figure of 49 mpg, while the base 105-horsepower TDI® Clean
Diesel engine delivers 62 mpg on the EC combined cycle.
The new Golf is 2.2 inches longer than the old car, with an overall length
of 167.5 inches. Similarly, the wheelbase has grown by 2.3 inches to 103.8
inches. Since the front wheels are now located 1.7 inches further forward,
the proportions are sportier, the crash structure is improved, and the
interior package further optimized. The new car is 0.8 inches lower and 0.5
inches wider than the old car.
The new Golf is more spacious, with a passenger compartment that is 0.6
inches longer than before, giving 0.6 inches more rear kneeroom. Shoulder
room is improved by 1.2 inches in both the back and front of the car. Cargo
capacity has also been enhanced, while the load area is more accessible.
A key feature of the interior is a new infotainment system, which
incorporates a five-inch touchscreen, even on entry-level European models.
At the top end, the Golf features a navigation system which has a large,

Discussion about this Video:
I feel like I should have made this video a while ago but the opportunity
never came up. Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine
light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this
video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's
really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires
soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think
but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab
it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do
the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because
shorting the connector is all you need to do.
I hope you find this video helpful.

Honda has long been known as a serious kind of car company. Press events
are orderly, the Honda folks wear suits and their products are similarly
starched. While we have a new corporate nose up front with a chrome
"smiley" face and aggressive headlamps, the rest of the profile is buttoned
up and professional. The large (and low) greenhouse says "I have kids," an
image that Honda has been embracing with their latest commercials,
essentially admitting they are leaving descriptives like "sexy" and
"dramatic" to Hyundai and Ford. I have to admit I am quite torn, I love the
Fusion's sexy sheetmetal making it my first pick in terms of looks, but
oddly enough the "plain Jane" Accord is number two for me because it's
simple clean. The new Kia Optima is a very, very close third thanks its
nose job for 2014. I'm not convinced that the Camry's nose or the Sonata's
dramatic character lines will age well, let me know what you think in the
comment section. Something important to keep in mind is the Accord has
bucked the growth trend and has shrunk on the outside compared to the
previous generation making it among the smallest in this segment. Good if
you live in the city, bad if you were hoping for a Honda land yacht.
Honda's interiors have long been known for their simple functionality
rather than opulence or elegance and Honda is still singing the same tune.
Despite being an all-new model for 2013, Honda hasn't radically changed the
interior design, opting instead for incremental improvements and more
standard features. All Accords now get standard dual-zone automatic climate
control, Bluetooth phone integration, a backup cam and active noise
cancellation. Honda seems to have listened to the complaints from reviewers
and customers and took a methodical and dedicated approach to making the
Accord quieter on the road. In addition to the fancy noise cancelling
software, there's more foam, more carpet and a one-piece dash designed to
prevent squeaks later in life.
Honda's seat engineers seem to be designing seats specifically for my back
lately. The Accord and the refreshed Civic both sport supportive seats that
coddled by back and backside on long journeys. There is a caution I must
toss in however, the lumbar support in Sport, EX and LX models is fixed and
pronounced. If you need some adjustibility in your back support, you'll
need to step up to a leather model to get it. 2013 has brought a raft of
materials improvements to the Accord cabin from improved seat fabrics to
more squishy dash bits and the ever-so-popular stitched pleather.
Thankfully Honda spares potential owners the shame of faux wood trim,
instead opting for a modern brown pattern that I found attractive. The trim
and the style are not as stylized or futuristic as eh competition, but
controls are easy to locate, and consistent in their high quality feel.
What piqued my interest at the launch even was Honda's new 2.4L
direct-injection four cylinder engine. The engine and the brand-new CVT
turned my impression of the Accord on its head. The engine's 185HP still
arrived at a very-Honda high RIM of 6,500, but thanks to the
direct-injection sauce torque jumps to a [nearly] HP matching 181 lb-ft
with a strong pull from idle and a peak at a decidedly un-Honda 3,900RPM.
If you choose the 6-speed manual, this means you no longer have to rev the
nuts off the engine to get the Accord in motion. Most shoppers however will
find a Continuously Variable Transmission under their Accord's hood,
although they may not even notice. Why? This is quite possibly the world's

2013 Honda Accord Sport: CVT vs 6 Speed Manual 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Honda Accord Sport with the 189 HP 2.4L
engine can be purchased with two transmission options. You can get the new
Honda Accord with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters or you
can opt for the more traditional 6 speed tranny that you have to row
yourself. In another fun and informative TFLcar mile high 0-60 MPH mashup
review we test the car with the same engine but pit the CVT automatic
against the manual 6 Speed transmission. So which of these two options is
the faster way to go. You'll have

2014 Honda Accord Coupe Test Drive Video Review
If you are an automotive enthusiast, you would probably agree that there
isn't anything too exciting happening with the Honda brand these days.
Honda is more about everyday driving and fuel economy but there is a
glimmer of excitement still left in the Line-up. The 2014 Honda Accord
Coupe V-6 with the manual gear box is surprisingly fun to drive.
Find Out More on the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe
Styling wise the Accord Coupe is one sharp car that does not go overboard.
Up front the Accord Coupe still carries the familiar Honda family design
but adds a bit more aggressive LED headlights. There is 18-inch rims
wrapped in 235-series tires at all four corners. The shoulderline runs from
the headlights up to the top of the taillights and gives the coupe come
character. Out back there is some chrome and a dual Exhaust for added flair. And with this red paint
the whole package works well without shouting in your face.
Most Honda Accord's will be paired with the 4-cylinder engine that makes
185 HP. The engine you want is the 3.5 liter V-6 that makes 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft. of
torque making this one of the most entertaining front wheel drive cars on
the market. There is also a 6-speed manual transmission available.
On the inside you realize the Accord coupe has a better interior than the
Civic and it feels much more up-market. The materials are nice and the
integrated screen in the dash is great. Honda has always been great with
ergonomics and the Accord Coupe is very pleasant to drive and user
