I always have a sweet spot for Honda, I am not really sure why, in the grand scheme of things, I really don't like front wheel drive cars, and Honda is always tends to prove me wrong when it comes to making good Front-Wheel Drive cars. Currently the Integra Type S is keeping the Honda flag going whilst Honda work hard on the next Generation Sports car.
So what have Honda been up to? The Honda Sports 4. The Concept points the way to future Honda sports sedans, featuring a sleek, bold exterior with a low-centre of gravity and low inertia body. On the inside is a sports cockpit with futuristic controls laid out for instant “at a glance” recognition and intuitive information displays. The interior is sculpted as a “one form” design from metal, wood and leather.
But you know what the best thing about the new Honda is? Its no longer Front-Wheel drive! The Sports 4 features Honda’s renowned Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system coupled with a five-speed sequential shift automatic transmission.
And no longer will the rear passengers complain that they don't have bucket seats as the Sports 4's four occupants have individual bucket seats and personal “skyroofs” operated from controls on their seats.
Also featuring on Honda’s stand this year is a limited-edition Accord VTi with leather seats, leather steering wheels, front fog lights, rear parking sensors, power steering wheel and metallic paint. A new feature of the Honda stand is a dedicated F1 section complete with a wall mounted, full size F1 car.
