Honda baby NSX's interior and exterior revealed in patent filing

Honda has filed a patent for the interior of its "baby NSX" with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The renders were discovered by AutoGuide and Autocar. Although they show a vehicle without a front windscreen, we believe that's because the patent only relates to the interior. Also of note, the car has an aircraft-style steering wheel with a flattened top and bottom...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

Two new-generation hatches, hugely important for each brand both in simple number terms and, more importantly, making a strong argument for the attentions of increasingly savvy buyers in the small-car market. One of these cars, the new 2017 Honda Civic, boasts a pedigree nearly 50 years old, with the same name and with a very well-regarded history of solid engineering...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

Honda planning dedicated hybrid model to take on Prius, Ioniq, Niro - report

Honda will launch a new dedicated hybrid vehicle in 2018, and re-enter the space still dominated by the Toyota Prius.

2018 Honda Civic Type R triple exhaust makes the car quieter… wait, what?

One of the talking points of the new-generation 2018 Honda Civic Type R is its three-pipe exhaust system, which you may have thought was just a (further) styling exercise for the Japanese hot-hatch. But there’s more to it than that. The three-tip system has a clever noise-lowering function when the Honda's 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine is hoofing it on the highway...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

See the full article here. The rev needle is pushing 7000rpm as I grip the titanium gear-knob and slam it down into fourth. The speedo needle creeps over 150km/h, while the engine again raises a raucous racket as the end of the straight approaches. I’m in the 2018 Honda Civic Type R at Lausitzring in Germany, and I’m learning pretty rapidly that this car is a handful...

Honda Australia says it has completed 69 per cent of the enormous recall on third-party airbag inflators made by supplier Takata. However, given the task of tracking down some older affected vehicles is tougher (some are 16 years old), the company doesn't expect to complete the fixes for another 12 months...

2018 Honda Civic Type R missed out on auto gearbox due to weight concerns

The 2018 Honda Civic Type R hatch will be offered solely with a six-speed manual transmission because an auto would have mucked up the weight balance of the car. That’s according to Yuji Matsumochi, assistant large project leader for the 10th-generation Civic powertrain at Honda Japan...

Could the new Civic Type R spawn an all-wheel-drive spinoff?

Is there space for something to sit above the 2018 Honda Civic Type R? Perhaps an all-wheel-drive hot-hatch with more power and torque than the current front-drive flagship? You bet. Just look at Volkswagen’s strategy with its two Golf models, the GTI and the R, or Ford with its Focus pairing, the ST and the RS...
