.... the way Honda implements and executes simple yet effective technologies. I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of traditional hybrids but I really think these 3 variations have the potential to break that traditional hybrid reputation just like they did with their new CVT in the Accord.

With Honda being somewhat sterile the past few years its great to see them returning to the overachieving mainstream engineering company they used to be. In the end, it's not the technology that you implement as its more about execution, refinement and making the most from those technologies. Overall I think Honda has been better at doing so than most as their technical execution just makes sense.
