These Canada-only General Motors franchises lasted only a few short years.

Consumer Guide Automotive Frankly, it seems Honda got caught with its pants down.

As the market made its seismic shift to crossovers, the company continued to concentrate on cars, adding but one entry of the crossover variety in the past 15 years. As a result, today’s Honda lineup of 10 vehicles contains only three crossovers.

2019 Honda Passport

LA-Auto-Show-LogoHonda has the compact SUV class capably covered with its CR-V, and its Pilot SUV is a solid competitor in the three-row midsize SUV category. However, two-row, five-passenger SUVs are also a very popular market segment, and Honda didn’t have a product offering there to compete directly against rivals such as the Ford Edge and the just-redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe.

I’m not quite ready to accept the Nineties as the distant past, but maybe I need to. Consider that the first official White House website went live in 1994, and that Quentin Tarantino’s now-classic Pulp Fiction was released the same year. It’s getting hard to remember a world before internet connections and great Vincent Vega quotes.

1991 Oldsmobile Toronado Troféo

What would be the the automotive equivalent of a leg man? I’m guessing it’s a wheel-and-tire guy. But whether or not your type is brunettes or redheads, you have to admit it’s always fun to admire the things we love from a new perspective.

As you likely already know, the manual transmission is all but dead. Nothing drove home this point better than the news that in 2019, pure-electric vehicles outsold vehicles equipped with manual transmissions in the U.S.
