The 2017 New York International Auto Show will be showcasing automotive innovation from across the globe, and drivers are naturally wondering what highlights to expect. Some of the most eagerly-anticipated reveals revolve around Honda models, so we’re more than happy to fill you in.
The New Civic Si
It’s hard to imagine a vehicle that has enjoyed the same exceptional critical and commercial success as the new Honda Civic. Named “the best compact car money can buy” by KBB.com, and winning their 2017 Kelley Blue Book Overall Best Buy Award, it’s a fantastic model that comes in several variants. The final configuration is the Civic Si, and it’s set to be shown at this year’s New York Auto Show.
The reveal will showcase the Si’s promising track capabilities, as well as showing the final design that will reach dealerships like Walla Walla Valley Honda sometime in the future. We already know the Si will look fantastic, so we can’t wait to check out how it performs.
The All-New Clarity Plug-In Range
The 2017 New York International Auto Show will also mark the worldwide debut of the all-new Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric. These two models clearly represent Honda’s latest step towards their vision of making two-thirds of global sales from electric vehicles by 2030, and they’re certainly attracting plenty of attention.
The addition of the plug-in hybrid and EV will make Clarity the first ever series of vehicles to offer such an expanded selection of power choices. The current fuel cell model is already a standout option among eco-conscious College City drivers, and new models will only extend the line’s reputation.
The Clarity Electric will be the first affordable midsize battery electric vehicle, while the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is expected to be the line’s volume leader with an all-electric driving range rating in excess of 40 miles. Both models flaunt unique design elements, aerodynamic bodies, and Honda “fun-to-drive” DNA, plus inbuilt technologies such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and standard Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies.
