Honda also announced today three new direct-injected and turbocharged engines, plus an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission with the interesting addition of a torque converter. We were able to test the latter in a 2013 Honda Accord.
America’s own Polaris is the first on the market with an airless tire. The tires can take a direct hit from a .50-caliber round and still drive 350 miles; they can also last 1,000 miles after running over a railroad spike.
You'll find all of this and more in today's car news headlines from around the High Gear Media network, right here at Motor Authority.
