2013 NY Auto Show Preview: Honda

During the week leading up to the 2013 New York International Auto Show, The Driving Life will focus on the big news to expect from automakers, including vehicle launches and model updates.

Honda will reveal details of the refreshed 2014 Odyssey at the New York International Auto Show. The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid and 2013 Fit EV will also be on display at the Honda booth during the show’s press and public days.

The 2013 Odyssey is already an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK, an AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Award winner, an ALG Residual Value award winner, and one of the Best Family Cars of 2012 according to the editors of Parents Magazine/Edmunds.com and Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com. Honda says the 2014 Odyssey will include “some innovative new features.”

Both the 2014 Accord Plug-In and the fully electric Honda Fit EV were recently launched at select Honda dealerships in New York.

With an EPA fuel economy rating of 115 MPGe in electric-only mode, the Accord Plug-In is the most efficient sedan in America, and also the first production car to meet the U.S. EPA’s more stringent LEV3/SULEV20 vehicle emissions standard. The five-passenger all-electric 2013 Honda Fit EV delivers 189 lb-ft of torque from its electric motor and features a fully independent, multi-link rear suspension that serves as the foundation for Honda’s fun-to-drive EV with an EPA-estimated combined city/highway driving range rating of 82 miles.

Honda’s press conference is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, March 28 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
