2015 Honda HR-V launch Review

Honda has released their much-anticipated small SUV, the Honda HR-V. Competing directly with the Nissan Qashqai and forthcoming Mazda CX-3, the HR-V is a very important model for Honda.

Toyota Camry Hybrid Atara SL v Honda Accord Sport Hybrid v Lexus IS300h F Sport : Hybrid sedan comparison

Hybrid cars are not exactly a big ticket item in Australia, especially when you compare our market to somewhere such as Japan or the US. Nevertheless, there are options from Toyota, Honda and Lexus for those with green-tinged glasses. Out of the 260,000-odd passenger cars registered to fleets and private buyers alike over the first half of 2015, fewer than 5000 were petrol-electric hybrids...

Honda HR-V VTi-S v Renault Captur Dynamique : Comparison Review

The term 'crossover' is now as much about bridging generational gaps as it is about mashing up body styles. Whether you're a young first-car buyer, baby boomer retiree or small family in between, the blossoming compact people mover segment is increasingly targeting buyer niches with idiosyncratic models...

Honda CR-V VTi-L v Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed: Comparison Review

Mid-life updates can be minor or substantial – and it’s fair to say that the changes seen on the recently-arrived 2015 Honda CR-V Series II and 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander slot into the latter category.

The Honda Project 2&4 will make its public debut at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show, which takes place around the middle of September.

Honda NSX V6 uses Cosworth block and heads

The V6 motor in the second-generation Honda NSX has a block and heads made by British engine specialist Cosworth. Over the weekend we reported that production of the second-generation Honda NSX will be delayed from the third quarter of 2015 to the second quarter of 2016.

2015 Honda Odyssey VTi Review

This is my 4th VTi Odyssey and it is incredible how much extra space it has compared with previous models which have similar external dimensions. I dislike the sliding rear passenger doors and the designer of the Hondalink navigation system should be sacked as my cheap Garmin unit is much more intuitive and reliable. The ride quality is also inferior to the previous model...

I have owned this car for about the last 5 years, from 164,000 ks to 265,000 currently Car makers don't make cars like this anymore! This is my daily driver and has been very reliable over my ownership, I get around 7 litres for 100ks...

2014 Honda Odyssey Luxury Review

This car handles well and has been very comfortable. I have had problems from day 1 with the stereo and phone connections. It just stops working. It will not be reliable with the iPod and sometimes I can't get FM radio. Yesterday it just stopped operating for around 5 mins, and then restarted. The drivers window button will put the window all the way up, 60% of the time, with a short touch...

2015 Honda Legend Review

Here is the 2015 Honda Legend. Brought it with 16kms on the clock. This car was aimed at markets like Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Merc E class, and even Lexus GS. In almost every category the legend falls short. but it's not all bad news. Out of every single car that I had driven, there is not one car that can match the Legends ride and handling. Not one...
