With the first 100 units booked within the first 48 hours last year, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. is proud to announce the arrival of a fresh batch of its Civic Type R.
According to Honda, market acceptance and continuous demand are what urged them to have another 100 units brought to the country for 2018. To celebrate this milestone, the company is introducing a new Polished Metal Metallic color in addition to the signature Championship White and Rallye Red color lineup.
As a quick run through of its specs, a 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo Engine breathes life into the vehicle, packing a maximum output of 310PS and peak torque of 400Nm. It comes in a 6-speed manual transmission, a bespoke chassis setup, and advanced aerodynamics and technology features.
For those who didn’t get to order last year, this might be your chance. The new Civic Type R comes with a PhP 2,980,000 retail price and will be available for viewing at Honda car dealerships starting September 1. Initial customer deliveries kick off in the first week of October 2018.
Nissan Navara VL gets an updated infotainment display
For easier access and better viewing
Nissan Philippines, Inc. has just updated its best-selling pickup truck with a brand new infotainment display and maximizes its features for safety.
The company calls it Advanced Display Audio but is basically a bigger version of its previous touchscreen system with added features. Spanning eight inches across, Nissan says operating it is now easier and it now enjoys better range when it comes to features like its Around View Monitor. This is the same technology we previously enjoyed as it gives the driver a bird’s eye view of the truck, helpful in tight spaces.
Not only that, the new update now allows smartphone mirroring using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This way, drivers can extend the use of their smartphones to the vehicle and listen to messages and voice calls without needing to take your eyes off the road.
This also allows access to apps like Waze for navigation and Spotify to listen to your favorite tunes while driving.
The Advanced Display Audio is only available for the 4×4 VL model of Navara. For more information, you may visit any Nissan dealership in the Philippines or head straight to their website.
Stranger Things 3: What exactly is an ignition cable?
Possessed Billy knew what he was doing
By now, you’ve probably seen the third and newest season of Stranger Things on Netflix. If you still haven’t, it goes without saying that there are spoilers ahead and you should stay away from this article.
Seeing a pop culture reference such as Stranger Things together with the seemingly unrelated world of automotive in one writeup such as this could be strange (pun intended) for some. We really don’t mind and thought it would be a fun and unique way to talk about the show and learn a few things from it, as well.
So we ask the question: What exactly is an ignition cable?
The ignition cable is part of a vehicle’s ignition system. In simplest terms, it’s a mechanism that starts the engine. By generating a high voltage from the car’s battery to the spark plugs in its engine, it causes them to ignite the engine’s combustion chambers and get it up and running.
And in order to transfer that voltage from the source to the engine, you’ll need an ignition cable as it’s like a subway system that acts as pathways for the voltage to pass through. So if the ignition cable is not present, there’s no way to start the car.
Back to Stranger Things, Billy (although already possessed by the Mind Flayer) obviously still had his knowledge on cars so he took away the ignition cable trapping our favorite gang at Starcourt Mall’s parking lot.
Just to further stress the importance of an ignition cable and the whole ignition system for that matter, we’d like to visit other possibilities and ask, “What if Billy didn’t take it away?”
Well, the plan was for Eleven and her group to go to Bauman’s secret place and stay safe while Joyce, Hopper, and the rest try to close the portal and render the Mind Flayer powerless. If their ignition cable was intact, they’d be a lot safer away from the Mind Flayer although we wouldn’t be able to see that amazing fireworks scene inside the mall.
Through this, we see the importance of that one small part under the hood of the car. In real life, it really pays to make sure that everything is in good working condition and that one faulty cable could mean trouble for you if remained unaddressed — unless there’s a car on display inside a mall somewhere that you can take spare parts from!
You might soon have a pickup truck emoji thanks to Ford
Because it’s 🌏 Emoji Day
Let’s admit it, not a day goes by without us sending out emoji to our family and friends. We all have our favorites, too — from Apple’s pleading face to the pinching hand emoji. But other users noticed there’s something else missing: the pickup truck emoji.
And who would have the authority to propose one but the truck specialist themselves? Ford submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium (which is the organization that reviews and approves proposals for new emoji) back in 2018 to include the pickup truck emoji. After some time, it has now been short-listed as a candidate for inclusion in the future.
“Given the F-series’ status as America’s best-selling truck for 42 consecutive years, there’s no one better than Ford to help bring an all-new pickup truck emoji to hard-working texters around the globe,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager.
If the emoji is indeed approved by early 2020, the design will be customized for all mobile platforms and you can just send a pickup emoji whenever you need a pickup. 😉
