AutoComplete: Honda's new Civic Si is the most powerful one yetLamborghini drops the top on the rear-wheel drive Huracan, and Mazda refreshes the CX-5 crossover.
Today is November 16th, and here's what's making news on Road Show. Honda's last Civic SI was a bit underwhelming. Thankfully, the new one is anything but. The new Honda Civic SI, shown here in prototype concept form promises to be the fastest SI yet, packing a high torque variant of the 1.5-liter 4 banger from the Civic lineup. The outside is red. The inside is red. The whole damn thing is red. It'll probably be available in other colors, though. You might not be able to tell, but what you're looking at is a new Lamborghini. It's official name is Lamborghini Rear-Wheel Drive Huracan Spyder. Which is not only long, but completely explains what's new about it. It's a drop-top variant of the rear-wheel drive Huracan which reduces weight by getting rid of two driven wheels. But it's also a little slower to 60 miles an hour. Nevertheless, it's a stunner. Every single one of Mazda's cars is fun to drive, and the 2017 CX-5 is likely to keep with that tradition. This crossover is rocking a sleeker exterior, and revised interior with a floating screen dashboard. It also packs G-vectoring control which is Mazda's new system that limits axle torque to improve cornering. A family crossover that cares about handling? Sign me up.
