Over the years, Honda has made some iconic automobiles. Not quite Jaguar E-Type iconic...the Japanese carmaker’s version of iconic is more in line with what engineering nerds might consider iconic, but that’s just Honda’s way.
We’re talking cars like the Honda NSX, which pioneered the use of lightweight aluminum in modern chassis construction. Or the Type R line of automobiles, which took variable valve timing to the next level with their high-lift cam lobes, giving them superbike levels of zing and giving us decades of “VTEC kicked in yo” jokes. Or the humble Honda Civic, which brought joy to generations of drivers by offering lightweight construction, VTEC, and fancy dual-wishbone suspensions on what were ostensibly “commuter cars.” Or even the Honda Jazz, which provides Tardis-level interior packaging, the innovative mid-chassis fuel tank allowing the rear seats to fold straight into the floor for impressive space. All in a car with lightweight construction, VTEC, and a zest for life nearly unrivaled in its class.
