Honda City Turbo II: The 80s hatchback with a motorbike in the boot | Top Gear RETROspective

The Honda City Turbo II was ahead of its time. Not just because it was a wonderful little Japanese hatchback, but also because it came with the mighty Motocompo in the boot. The idea was genius: you would drive to the edge of town, then ride the last mile to the office on the scooter. It was the ultimate urban mobility solution, 40 years before anyone really started talking about urban mobility solutions. But is Honda about to bring this idea back to the future? Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix finds out as part of our new mini-series…

    Top Gear is doing so well online now! I actually much prefer the online content over the TV show. From the sit down chats with Chris Harris (who never disappoints) to the videos with Jack Rix are great too. Whether it's doing a reveal on a new car or something like this. Keep it up!

    Omg.. so many decades of progress! Honda E prolly has double the top speed and like 1/3 of the acceleration times of the turbo II. Citius, Altius, Fortius! Like the average modern man.

    Ebike Ecar combo is actually a good idea… is almost half of earths populations lives in the city, and with all the environmental issues, can someone please remind me why we need ginormous gas-guzzling monsters on the road?
