Winner of annual global design contest is 'bike meets car' concept
This is a show car preview of a production eight-seat SUV that will sit above the more svelte CRV in the Honda line-up.
This latest Accord for Europe is very much an evolution of the previous design, with elements of the new Civic added.
This is the Honda Wonderful Open hearted Wagon; the Honda Wow, a concept orientated around travelling in the car with your pet dog.
The Sports 4 is a study for a future Accord-sized sedan that showcases Honda's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive drivetrain, as used on the new Legend.
The FCX concept centres around displaying Honda's latest fuel cell technology in a 4.7meter premium car with an exceptionally spacious interior.
We were going to report on the new three door Honda Civic, but the design is very close to the five door launched last year and View Suspended is a more interesting debut shown on the Honda stand.
Because the five door Civic was such a radical departure from the previous generation Civic and other European C-sector cars, the three door doesn't deliver quite as one might expect, being not very different.
The Step Bus is an unusual concept; it uses the main structure and exterior form of the super small Japanese kei-class market Acty van (which means it is just 1475mm wide and 3395mm long) and has a tiny three cylinder engine mounted below the floor just ahead of the rear ...

The FC Sport was the only significant concept car debut at LA. According to Dave Marek, Chief Designer of the Advanced Design studio where the concept was designed, the decision to display the car in LA was a late one from Honda and the car was done on a very ...

With a new European Honda Accord due to be announced soon, the Accord Tourer Concept presented at Frankfurt demonstrates in core theme and form the exterior design of the production estate car.
The new 2008 Honda Fit (Jazz in Europe) is a good example of how to update a car without losing the essential character that made it so successful first time around.
This is the third version of a new CR-X successor that Honda have shown lately and is much closer to production-ready in style than the Remix or Hybrid Sports concepts shown earlier.
The concept behind the Puyo was to create a 'Seamless Soft Box' form that is kind to both people and the environment, with the feel of an adorable pet.
The FCX concept shown at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show and the Kiwami concept shown before it (Tokyo, 2003) were both designed around their fuel-cell powertrains running through the center tunnel. The FCX Clarity is a new production design that stems directly from these two cars: it also features a ...
It may not be a car, but Honda's U3-X was one of the most impressive concepts at the show.
Honda last week released the latest in their family MPV line, the Stepwagon, for the Japanese domestic market.

First shown in Tokyo two years ago, this year's model is much better resolved and largely what we'll see on the streets in Spring, aside from the front-clip, there ...
The EV -N is a sub three-meter fully electric four-seat city car intended as part of a future Zero Emission system incorporating the U3-X personal mobility device, EV Cub and EV Monpal.
It may be called the Skydeck for show’s sake, but underneath the concept car makeover is Honda’s next Stream, the brand’s mid-sized MPV for Japan and formerly the European market.
The Crosstour is based on the same platform as the Acura ZDX that we covered at the New York Auto Show when it debuted in near production form earlier this year.
This design is dominated by its mono-space theme that tapers in plan forwards to reflect its arrow-head three seat configuration.
It's understandable to be confused given the number of similar-looking concepts shown over the last three years but Detroit 2010 finally saw the global production unveil of the Honda CR-Z coupe.
The 3-RC is a single seat, three-wheeled, zero emission urban concept vehicle which occupies the space between a car and a motorbike. Overall form is dictated by the seating position of its rider - similar to that of a scooter rider, with feet forwards and knees together.
