2006 Honda REMIX Concept

November 29, 2006


One of three Honda concept vehicles on display at the 2006 L.A. Auto Show , the REMIX is a study in contrasts, that “balances sports car virtues with real-world practicality,” suggested desiger Ben Davidson.

A jet fighter-like canopy sweeps into smooth and fluid surfaces that, in turn, run up against hard-edged, geometric shapes, such as the rectangular door inserts. Flaring fenders wrap around tight wheel arches, while a rear diffuser contributes to the REMIX’s performance.

Under the hood, Honda officials hinted that REMIX is driven by a “small” four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. There’s a sport-tuned suspension and “aggressive” brakes. The show car underscores Honda’s belief that “fun-to-drive is as important as economical-to-own,” explained John Mendel, Honda’s topU.S.executive.


While Davidson insisted there are “no” production plans, another senior Honda executive suggested that the REMIX could serve as a prototype for a future, sporty small car for the Japanese brand.
