2017 Honda Accord Hybrid

Already on sale, Honda’s Accord Hybrid returns for 2017 with more power, better fuel economy, and a number of new features. Prices start at less than $30,500.

Hybrids are a hard sell these days. With gas prices hovering near $2 a gallon, fuel economy isn’t the draw it was when they were closing in on $5.

Chevy IndyCar

Note the slanted engine cover on Chevy’s IndyCar …

… While Honda’s has a more horizontal cover.

Last month’s Indianapolis 500 marked the 100th running of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” which originated at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1911. (The math doesn’t work out for the intervening year span because the race wasn’t run during World War I and World War II.)

While the early races featured many cars that were essentially stripped-down production models – with wildly different specifications – it quickly became a contest between specially built racing machines. And in recent years, those machines have been primarily differentiated by what engine was powering them.

Where have these cars gone? There’s no hard science to this–it’s purely anecdotal–but I well remember seeing these vehicles, and I don’t anymore. They’ve seemingly vanished.

2017 Honda Ridgeline

Honda’s Ridgeline pickup truck returns after a 2-year absence as a 2017 model. Due on sale in June, prices start at about $30,000 for the base front-drive version and run up to near $44,000 for the top-line AWD Black model.

If you applied the famed “Which one is not like the others?” Mensa question to the compact-pickup class, the obvious answer would be … Honda’s Ridgeline.

Or at least, it used to be. Introduced for 2006, the Ridgeline was discontinued after 2015–though Honda acknowledged at the time that a redesigned version was on the way. That replacement appears this June as a 2017 model, boasting many of the same attributes and some interesting new features, but with a decidedly different look.

2016 Ford F-150

For an auto news geek, one of the more entertaining monthly reports to peruse is the new-vehicle inventory update published in Automotive News. From it, we can deduce what vehicles are in short supply (i.e., probably selling well), and which are taking up space (i.e., selling poorly). The report is not infallible in this regard, however, as factory down time, model-year build-outs, and other factors can cloud the overall picture.

2016 new York Auto ShowAs Honda noted in its introduction of the Civic Hatchback prototype at the New York Auto Show, “Enthusiasts have looked longingly across the Atlantic to Civic models like a hatchback and Type R that until now have been forbidden fruit.”

Indeed they have.

It strikes me that the five cars listed here are a little like Pia Zadora. How, you may ask, is any vehicle like Pia Zadora? I’m glad you asked.
