Cranked car windows are going, going…: This is interesting.
This year, Honda became the first of the largest automakers to banish the crank window, moving entirely to power windows as standard equipment.
“It’s not even so much a luxury touch any more. It’s an expectation,” says Honda’s Sage Marie. “That’s why you see it on everything from our least expensive model to the highest.”
In a related note, I pulled up next to a Ferrari Enzo in Sioux Falls last night (yeah, seriously). I rolled down my (power) window to ask the guy about it, but he had to lean over to the passenger side and crank his down. Not what you’d expect for $1.3 million, though I imagine the car has other…benefits.
You want the Enzo? Here it is.
