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...

2018 Honda CR-V review

The new 2018 Honda CR-V is as practical as ever, but adds more polished dynamics, design panache and thoughtful specification levels. It should be on your shortlist if you're after a mainstream compact SUV.

2018 Honda CR-V pricing and specs: Turbo five- and seven-seat SUV arrives

The new 2018 Honda CR-V range is now on sale in Australia, bringing turbo power and, for the first time, seven-seat versatility to the company's popular medium SUV line-up.

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...

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...
