Honda's reborn Civic is this year's sweetest concept

'Reborn' Civic? The Civic never died! True enough. Honda's global small car is now into its 10th generation, making it one of the longest-running nameplates on the market. But, like most cars that claim decades-old lineage, the Civic has more than a few times come out of its cocoon bigger than before and with an all-new look...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report four – Urban driving

Let's be honest, there's a big perception problem around the 2017 Honda Civic RS hatch. People in the office who ended up taking it for a spin, got into it thinking – because of the RS badge and the aggressive/outspoken styling –that it was going to be a hot hatch. Or, at least a warm hatch...

2017 Honda NSX: Only two sold in Oz so far

Surrounded by much hype and huge expectation, the first new Honda NSX to be sold in Australia in 25 years launched locally in late 2016. Anticipation was high and fans were, understandably, rather excited. Then Honda Australia confirmed pricing for the hybrid supercar: an eyebrow-raising $420,000 (before on-road costs)...

2017 Honda CR-V v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack comparison

Car reviewers usually determine which cars to compared based on the vehicle ‘segment’ they occupy. Medium SUVs take on medium SUVs, small hatches take on small hatches, and so on… Yet we know based on buyer data, and personal experience alike, car buyers don’t always think in these terms...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report three – Infotainment

I don’t know why you’d need a calculator to be a function of your car's infotainment system, but that’s one of the inclusions in the new-generation Honda Civic hatch. It’s even more baffling when you think about the lack of satellite navigation in anything but the top-spec VTi-LX model – but Honda argues buyers of the rest of the models in the range, like our RS hatch, will more likely use their phone for mapping...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report two – interior

If there’s a brand known for cockpit practicality, it’s this one. And up until this generation, the Honda Civic hatch was the standard bearer in the small car segment. But that’s no longer the case, as the 2017 Honda Civic hatch has done away with its brilliant Magic Seat system that allowed you to store anything from pot plants to pushbikes in the back seat area...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report one – introduction

This new-generation 2017 Honda Civic hatch is a big deal. It could be a step too far to suggest that Honda Australia’s future depends on it being a success, but the Japanese brand is sure as hell hoping for big things from it. It’s such a big deal, in fact, we decided to get one for a few months to see if it lives up to the hype...
