2016 – HONDA CIVIC ART CAR JEAN GRATON   

The Honda Civic WTCC will debut a new image at the Goodwood Speed ​​Festival. The Japanese brand has partnered with the Jean Graton Foundation to provide an artist design and participate in the FIA ​​World Touring Car Championship ‘Art Car Contest’ competition, and nothing better than a Graton artwork. The image of the car was designed by Dominique Graton, Art Director of the Jean Graton Foundation, and Philippe Ghielmetti, and is inspired by Jean Graton’s most famous creation: Michel Vaillant. The artist created this comic book cartoon character in 1957, and who came to be a ‘cult’ character. The Honda Art Car Jean Graton, as it will be called this exclusive Honda Civic WTCC, will feature a design inspired by the Michel Vaillant Art Strip ‘A Fond!’, Where Michel Vaillant describes himself chasing a Ferrari through the Monaco tunnel during the 1974 Grand Prix The car will be displayed inside the F1 Paddock in Goodwood State, near Chichester, UK. Followers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite design through social networks and the web. The winner will be honored at the closing ceremony of the Goodwood Speed ​​Festival 2016.

2016 – HONDA CIVIC COUPE     

Honda unveiled some official images of the new Honda Civic Coupe that was presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The announcement that the new Civic Coupe was to be shown in LA was just under a week ago, so the production model may come sooner than anyone imagines. In aesthetic terms, the new Civic does not follow the most aggressive lines of the concept revealed in New York. The small mirrors disappeared just like the lush front grille. However, the brand promises that on the date of its launch to the market in March 2016, customers will be able to prove the high sports content of the Civic Coupe, which does not compromise the interior space. In mechanical terms the Civic Coupe will be equipped with two engines, which according to Honda, guarantee more power and greater efficiency. The least powerful engine is a 2.0 i-VTEC of 158 hp announcing a mixed consumption of 15 km / l. Coupled to this engine comes a six-speed manual transmission. On models with higher equipment level, the present engine will be the new 1.5-liter direct injection Turbo with 174 hp. Honda also bets on the expansion of the standard equipment, with the top-of-the-line version, called Touring, including automatic LED lights, rear LED lights, bi-zone automatic air conditioning, electric parking brake, heated seats, rain and 7.0 inch screen with Android connectivity system.

2016 – HONDA CIVIC COUPE RED BULL GLOBAL RALLYCROSS 

The Honda Civic Coupe for competitions is now ready to debut at the Red Bull Global Rallycross, which will have its first race this year on May 21 in Phoenix, Arizona. This championship has been causing a furor in the United States. The Red Bull Global Rallycross is a competition where races are played on mixed terrain and asphalt circuits, where spectators can very comfortably see the car’s evolutions and skidding. In this championship participate models such as the new Honda Civic Coupe, Subaru WRX STI, Hyundai Veloster, Volkswagen Beetle and Ford Fiesta ST. The new Honda Civic Coupe Red Bull GRC will be a brutal car with a maximum power of over 600 hp, total traction and an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h completed in 1.9 seconds. Of course your suspension is prepared to be subjected to jumps and all kinds of stunts. The Honda Civic will be driven by Swedish Sebastian Eriksson and Finn Joni Wiman. “Global Rallycross is an excellent platform to show the new Honda Civic Coupe to the younger crowd,” said Nick Lee of the American Honda Motor Co.

2016 – HONDA CIVIC HATCHBACK CONCEPT

Featuring a look very similar to the one that went on sale in the United States at the end of last year, the concept of the new five-door Honda Civic for Europe reveals dynamic and robust lines, with production version expected to be virtually identical. With Honda betting on a global strategy for new products, and in particular for the new Civic, the concept reveals an image very close to that of the American model, with a prominent chrome grille, sharp headlights and sporty appearance. However, from the B-pillar to the rear, the differences are more evident in relation to the sedan and the coupe, although there are obvious points of contact, such as the shape of the taillights. The new Civic Hatchback will be 30 mm wider, 20 mm lower and 130 mm longer than the current generation.

Moreover, as it is a concept, it appears with a more sportive and aggressive appearance, noticeable, for example, in the large wheels and in the bumper with larger air intakes, elements that may not be part of the production model. However, the exhaust in the center position seen in the concept is also found in the model that is in development tests, so the concept may show a version sportier than Type-R. For this, it could count on a less powerful version of the same engine, that is, a 2.0 Turbo VTEC block at a more contained power level (around 230/240 hp), while the more sporty of the line would have the same 310 hp of the model currently on sale in Europe and Japan. They are already confirmed the engines 1.0 and 1.5 (both turbo), first with power in the order of 120 hp and the second with versions of 150 or 160 hp. Like the current model, the new five-door Civic will be produced at the Swindon (UK) factory in Britain and then exported to other global markets, including the United States, in a return to that country. Daisuke Tsutamori, leader of the 10th Generation Civic Project, commented on the aesthetic aspect of the car and left an idea of ​​how this different design was conceived and implemented: “We knew we would have to create an appealing exterior design and stand out from the others, conventional style of the European compact car, while remaining true to the core values ​​of the original Civic, ie a combination of sporty character and a different design, combined with outstanding driving dynamics and practical versatility. “

2016 – HONDA CIVIC SEDAN 

The new Honda Civic Sedan 2016 was introduced in the US. This is the tenth generation of the vehicle and the Japanese brand says it will be the most ambitious in the model’s 43-year history. Honda intends the Civic to be a global model and soon will join the sedan a coupe version, a high-performance Si, a five-door hatchback and for the first time a Civic Type-R for the American market. The new Civic Sedan is a project that starts practically from scratch. It now features a redesigned design that is based on the Honda Civic Concept prototype, and also features a new chassis, new technology and new line of engines. In terms of its dimensions, it is now a little wider and lower, thus achieving a more muscular image and a sporting aspect. In this model the torsional stiffness was improved by 25% thanks to the use of high strength steel, which made the model 30 kg lighter. Its aerodynamics were revised to improve its effectiveness by 12%, this was achieved by covering the lower part of the body. Another of the improved aspects was the driving position, which has now become lower. The 2016 Civic Sedan will be offered in the US with two engines. On the one hand we have the aspirated DOHC i-VTEC 2.0 liter that will equip the Civic Sedan LX and EX. It will develop 160 hp and comes coupled to a six-speed manual transmission or CVT automatic continuous drive. On the other hand the Civic Sedan LX-T, EX-L and Touring will be equipped with the first turbo engine offered by Honda in this country. It is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 175 hp and will be offered only with the CVT automatic transmission. The interior is now more spacious and looks more premium. Regarding the equipment, highlight the new touch screen of 7 inches. Connectivity is also an important factor for the model and so it will be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In the upper finishes, it counts on bizona climatizador, electric parking brake, besides adjustable benches and with heating. In terms of help in driving, the Honda Sensing package is offered, which includes systems such as the anti-collision wizard, track unintentional shift detector and adaptive cruise control with the congestion function. The new Honda Civic Sedan 2016 will go on sale in the US in October.

2016 – HONDA CIVIC TYPE-R CONCEPT 

One of the novelties of the Paris Salon 2016 is this Honda Civic Type-R Prototype, a conceptual version of the Japanese sports compact. It was already known that the tenth generation of the Honda Civic would be one of the great protagonists of the event, but no one had this surprise guest. The most likely is that this prototype is anticipation and a production model that will arrive in 2017. The truth is that the new Type-R comes out spectacular with an attractive and somewhat sinister appearance. The black color with the red details that decorate your body accentuates your sportiness. It has huge bumpers that differentiate it from the standard model and features 20-inch wheels fitted with wide wheel arches. The rear benefits from a large rear airfoil and a new diffuser that integrates three exhaust ports. Carbon fiber is the predominant material in this Civic Type-R Prototype. Although images of his interior were not yet disclosed, sportsmanship is also expected inside, with sports seats and other specific elements. One of the details kept secret is its engine. Honda has yet to comment on that, but is expected to use the current 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. Although this mechanics can surpass the current numbers, reaching around 320 hp. We will have to wait to know the model that will hit the streets, at least until the second half of 2017. What seems clear is that the production model will not differ much from this Honda Civic Type-R Prototype. It will also be produced at Honda’s Swindon (UK) plant exclusively for the whole world, as well as the normal Civic.

2016 – HONDA CIVIC SEDAN BLACK PACK EDITION

Honda has just introduced the Civic Black Pack Edition, an optional package of equipment that will be available only in Australia. The tenth generation of the model will go on sale in that country only next month, but Honda already offers buyers more customization options with the addition of this optional package for the Civic Sedan. As its name suggests, the Honda Civic Black Edition Edition will feature a series of black details that affect the 17-inch wheels, front splitter, grille, side skirts, rearview mirror housings and rear aerofoil. On the other hand, the package is available for the five finishes of the Honda Civic in Australia: VTi, VTi-S, VTi-L and VTi-LX, for a price of 2,998 Australian dollars, something around 7,700 reais. The Honda Civic Sedan’s RS trim already features a number of exterior sporting details, but the Black Pack Edition is also available, although its price is reduced to A $ 2,298. This is due in part to the fact that this version already has a black front grille and a black rear spoiler, so it would not make sense to pay for something that is already included as standard.

How-To Order a Car Sign

Advertising on your vehicle is a great way to promote your small business. The advantages of mobile advertising are hard to pass up, however, it’s important to design a car sign carefully to ensure that your message will be clear, easy-to-read, and won’t limit the use of your vehicle itself.

People use car signs in many different ways:

To identify important business information (company name, phone number, website)

To entice new customers with special offers and promotions

To offer and explain business services

To express ideas, opinions, beliefs, etc.

To personalize the vehicle (with pictures and murals)

Figuring out that you need car signage is fairly-easy, but designing a sign that will be useful and effective can sometimes be difficult. This article explains exactly what to do if you’re looking to order a car sign.

Step 1.   Decide where on the vehicle you would like to place the sign. The most-common areas for vehicle advertising are the side doors and the rear window. These are the most-visible areas to other drivers and people passing by the vehicle. However, other unique areas to advertise are the tailgate (or rear door), side windows, or the hood. Some business people even buy honda pilot car cover online the entire vehicle in advertising by using full-size car graphics.

Step  2.  Decide what material you would like to use for your car sign. If the sign is to be placed on the vehicle’s body, car magnets are a great choice-just make sure the body is actually made of metal. If it’s not, the magnet won’t stay on! For car window decals, choose a material with an adhesive so that it will stick to the window. Vinyl decals or even one-way vision films work well because they stick to the window and won’t fly off at speed.

Step 3.   Once you have picked a location and material, it’s time to design the sign itself. Car magnets and car door signs are easy to design, but should be kept simple so they can be read easily from a distance. Visibility is important when advertising on a car window, so if you want your design to be solid, don’t cover up the entire window. Not only is it dangerous, you could get a citation for blocking visibility. One-way vision signs are great because you can print on them and cover the entire window but from the inside they are see-through. Make sure to take the shape of your window into account when designing the piece itself-not all rear windows is square or rectangular! You should now be ready to order a car sign. There are many online printing sites that allow you to customize your design, or go to a local sign shop to get a more personal experience. Either way, ordering car signs is a smart decision, whether you’re looking for new business or just want to give your vehicle that personal touch.

Cover Letters and the Sense of Urgency Myth

They believe they must be available at all times for a potential employer and that will somehow demonstrate their determination and motivation. These job hunters often close their cover letters with “I am available any time for an interview” or something to that effect. These same job seekers surmise that if they limit themselves in any way the employer will somehow see them as a nuisance or less valuable. This is the myth. The opposite is true. Limitation in itself creates value. That is supply and demand. And no matter what the employment environment or job market is, you can put supply and demand on your side every time. How? You are a unique asset! There is only one of you. Limit your availability and create a sense of urgency. Perception is the same even in a buyers’ or employers’ market. When an employer receives 200 resumes and cover letters for the same position that all are available anytime, and one comes in with limited availability, that one job hunter suddenly stands out and is perceived as having more value.

Professional marketers and successful business owners know a sense of urgency drives people to buy. That’s why every sale is for a limited time and why coupons expire. Car dealers take full advantage of the sense of urgency in their advertising. Here is an excerpt from a radio commercial I heard recently for a local auto dealership: Today we are offering possibly the greatest deals on new cars in history with our inventory reduction blowout. Hurry in now because this sale offer is for this weekend only and our stock is running out and will be gone soon. Wow! Those two lines pack a punch. Sounds like I could miss out on a once in a lifetime sale and there is a double sense of urgency; this weekend only and if I don’t hurry the cars could be gone before I get there. Car dealerships use these ads again and again because they work. People respond to a sense of urgency. You can use the same principle in your resume cover letters: Today I am offering possibly the greatest employer deal in history with an inventory reduction sale. Hurry and call me now because my skills are running out and will be gone soon.

OK this needs some tweaking! Sending out writing that sounds like car dealership advertising might make some HR personnel laugh but will probably not produce the results you are seeking. Obviously you don’t want to state your skills will be running out soon, but you can create urgency and limit your availability. Create urgency in cover letters by letting the employer know you will only be in their city until a certain date, or that you are contemplating another project. If the date passes and you are not contacted by the employer you can still approach them again later. Look for real scenarios that create urgency and do not fabricate here. You can also simply state that after a certain date you expect to no longer be available: period. You can limit your availability by offering employers two or three interview times on different days. You can also do this by stating window of opportunity period such as a week that you will be in their city or town.

I Have a Confession

My personal system for screening resumes and making interview decisions for hiring at my office is unparalleled. I utilize automated contact software synchronized with my calendar. My smart phone tells me who I need to contact and when at any given moment wherever I am. All that is backed up by a live assistant. Yet despite all my technology and Cracker Jack assistant, here is what often happens: While reading cover letters and resumes already screened by HR I find a candidate I want to interview and mark them with a yes; contact. Then before we reach that job hunter or before we interview him or her, a better cover letter arrives that has incorporated marketing tactics such as a sense of urgency. The urgency in the cover letter appeals to and hooks me. I waste no time and call or email the person immediately. (Notice I said a better cover letter; not necessarily a better resume.)

This candidate now has a head start over the rest of the job hunters and if we make contact and get together fairly quickly, and the person lives up to his or her qualifications, the position is filled before an interview is ever conducted with the first or earlier candidate. Marketing Tactics for Cover Letters 101: Create a sense of urgency. A sense of urgency causes people to act now. Your cover or connect letter must cause employers to contact you. Your words must work to make that happen immediately, while they are reading your letter. You must create a sense of urgency.

Getting Quality Car Breakdown Coverage

If we could plan when something would happen, we would have the proper coverage in place. You could be in the Alps or driving in the European countryside when your car breaks down, and you may not know the thing to do next. To make matters worse, everyone knows the UK has many of the world’s most remote areas and most dangerous roadways. For instance, the Road Safety Foundation reported that half of the world’s fatal road crashes happen on one-tenth of UK’s roads. Scotland has the most dangerous highways followed by certain parts of northern England. Moreover, the A537 which lies between Burton, Derby shire and Mansfield, Cheshire as the most dangerous road. Given these facts, you don’t want to be caught without a sound breakdown coverage in Europe, especially in the UK. The good news is that if you do have proper coverage, there won’t be any concerns. Everything will be taken care of and you won’t have to worry about a thing. When you are traveling overseas, it helps to have quality roadside assistance. There are different levels of coverage, which is why you must look for the right one for you. Some are fine with light coverage, while other people want to make sure they are covered against anything that could take place while they are vacationing.

The first thing that is needed is to compare the rates of different Europe policies for car breakdown cover. You want to look for something that is cheap but also provides the best coverage. Do you need something different when traveling the Swiss Alps? Maybe you are trying to maneuver traffic around Big Ben or the Olympic Village in Innsbruck. This process might take more time than you expect, but it is worth every minute if you find something that fits your needs and won’t cost too much. It is important to be protected against engine failure, flat tires, or a tow. You don’t want to be stranded from Chateau Ezra in France or Concertina Hotel in Germany, as this could hamper your sightseeing the Louvre or enjoying the winter sports in Arthurian. Unforeseen events can quickly destroy a vacation, as they take away your time and eat away your funds.

Car Seat Canopy

Can’t think of anything to get for your friend’s upcoming baby shower? A car seat canopy makes the perfect gift for a new mother. A what? A car carrier canopy is made of two sided fabric and has Velcro straps to attach to your car carrier’s handle. It then drapes over the seat completely covering your baby. I’m sure every mom out there has struggled to do this with a blanket. It falls to the ground and gets dirty or it falls in your baby’s face making her cry. A canopy that is secured to your carrier never falls off.

A car seat canopy offers a bunch of practical benefits

First, they protect your baby from bad weather. When you absolutely have to go out in the cold just bundle your baby up and then cover her with the canopy and she will be fine. When it is hot and sunny, keep her under the canopy and she will be shaded. Obviously there is no way to protect your baby from being out in extreme weather for long times, but this works great when going from the house to the car and the parking lot to the store. We all know how dangerous RSV can be for your little baby. The canopy keeps your baby covered and blocks the germs. This is a very effective way to isolate your baby from the germs from other kids. Third, it blocks your baby from the wind. Babies have such sensitive skin that can really be dried out by the wind. Babies also can get dehydrated really fast by the wind. Fourth, it keeps the inside of the carrier dark so that your baby can nap. It also makes it a bit quieter. Your baby will sleep longer in a dark and quiet environment.

The last benefit is that it keeps your baby away from curious children who are a bit too rough for a newborn. Innocent little children sometimes are too rough for a baby, but by keeping the baby out of sight you can keep most of them away. The car seat canopy attaches very easily. You just strap the Velcro over the car seat handle and then drape the car seat canopy over the car seat. To keep the canopy out of the baby’s face all you need to do is keep the handle in the upright position.
