Honda's "Top Secret" Chicago Introduction Is Tomorrow
 Date: February 07, 2006 16:27
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: TOV News
 Credibility Rating: 10


Well, I've just arrived in Chicago and Tuan will be arriving later this evening. This is in preparation for Honda's "top secret" World Introduction tomorrow at 3PM.

If you've been paying attention to the news section and our forums here for the last few months, the introduction is not a secret. We're not sure why Honda's trying to keep such a tight lid on it, but I guess it's to keep everybody wondering until the last minute. Over the past few days I've looked around the web and apparently we're the only folks who are aware of what's being shown, or the other outlets know but are being subjected to blackmail tactics to keep a lid on it.

We're going to do our best NOT to ruin the surprise for Honda - it's only 24 hours away, but if you look around here enough I'm sure you'll figure it out.

DING DING DING!! IT'S THE CIVIC SI SEDAN!!!

Looking at the lineup, there are only a few items of interest here otherwise. Lexus is launching the ES350, Toyota is debuting the new Tundra. On the domestic front there's a Dodge Nitro and Saturn Aura and maybe a few other things.

We do like the Windy City - sorry, Detroit but Chicago is a much nicer place to be, even if it's 20F with a bitter wind blowing.
Stay tuned for further updates.
