A lot of our European friends have spent many years looking across the Atlantic somewhat enviously at some of the fabulous cars we have over here in the U.S. Although they have some of the most exotic manufacturers in the world on their continent, they really don’t have anything quite the same as our iconic muscle cars. However, the folks at Honda Providence will be well aware of one model they do get in Europe that we don’t over here that can make us look a little jealously over in their direction from time to time. That model is the Civic Type-R, which is now having the newest version gradually revealed by the Japanese auto giant.

Among the many benefits from the redesign is a stiffer body structure that improves handling, better aerodynamics for fuel efficiency gains, and an overall quieter interior that makes traveling on the highway more enjoyable.

Hyundai is providing a new app for all 2015 Sonata owners, called Hyundai Assurance Car Care. The in-vehicle app can be downloaded in models that are equipped with navigation, providing quick access to information about the vehicle, plus available car care services. It shares some similarities with the Hyundai Assurance Car Care app for mobile devices, but instead is displayed on the eight-inch infotainment screen inside the vehicle. The new in-vehicle app also provides the first digital owner’s manual from Hyundai, allowing a more efficient and convenient method for car owners to become familiar with their vehicle. Through the Hyundai Assurance Car Care app, owners can also schedule a visit to a dealer’s service department to take care of maintenance issues like performing oil changes. Later in 2014, the in-vehicle app will become available on additional Hyundai models as they arrive at retailers like Hyundai Dealer San Jose, but for now can only be used in 2015 Sonatas.

The house gives fans a look at what it might be like if past Heisman Trophy winners all lived under the same roof, sometimes using humor to get the message across. The entire effort is to lend support to the Heisman Trust, which provides community support and charitable events throughout the year. The event is also entertaining, says Nissan Dealer Kingston, because football fans can vote online for their favorite Heisman Trophy candidates for 2014. The player that receives the most votes will be given an award by Nissan.
