Honda

Honda was founded in 1948 by Soichiro Honda and continues to be the second largest manufacturer in Japan. The company has developed a reputation for innovation and sporty, high-revving engines over the decades, though in recent years has been more focused on 'green' technologies than sports cars. Honda currently sells more than 10 models in Australia, including both a hatchback and sedan wearing the famous Civic nameplate.

Buyers hanging out for the all-new 2017 Honda Civic Type R get their first look at its styling today, with the debut of a hot ‘prototype’ version at this week’s Paris motor show.

2017 Honda NSX driven through food court

Read the full article here. If you’ve ever been to a casino in a major city, you’ll know that they like two things. First and foremost, it’s taking your money. Secondly, it’s displaying cars and high-end goods. Crown Casino in Melbourne is no exception, with Honda and Crown deciding that the all-new 2017 Honda NSX would look perfect sitting within the Atrium, inside Crown’s lobby area...

Honda Civic RS v Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo comparison

It was only July when the Honda Civic VTi-S outshone both the Skoda Octavia Ambition and Hyundai Elantra Active. Here though, we have just two rivals going head-to-head: the 2016 Honda Civic RS and 2017 Hyundai Elantra SR Turbo. And, based on their most recent individual reviews – the Civic RS scoring 8/10 from Mike Costello, the Elantra SR Turbo scoring the same from Matt Campbell – this has the potential to be a rather close-fought little battle...

Honda Jazz v Suzuki Baleno comparison

If you're in the market for a city-friendly car that's bigger inside than you’d think, then look no further: the 2016 Honda Jazz and the 2016 Suzuki Baleno are here to help.

Honda demonstrates self-balancing bike, improved voice recognition technology

Honda took the wraps off a self-balancing motorcycle, its Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem, and the NeuV concept, which we've already detailed. Honda Riding Assist motorbike While self-balancing bikes aren't an entirely new idea, Honda's new Riding Assist concept (above) doesn't use large gyroscopes, which it says add too much weight and impact upon the riding experience...

Honda NeuV concept works hard to make a living when the owner's away

The Honda NeuV concept has been unveiled at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, and is said to tackle the problem of idleness. Specifically, the automaker claims that privately owned cars sit idle and unused 96 per cent of the time.

2015 Honda Odyssey VTi review

I have now owned this vehicle (my fourth Odyssey since 2002) since April 2015 and have driven 33,000km. Fuel consumption has been excellent, averaging 8.3L/100km over a mix of city and highway driving. Reliability has been very good with no major issues encountered which is what I expect from a Honda. However I have some minor niggles which are annoying...

2013 Honda CR-V VTi (4x4) Review

This is a car the brands you as a breeder, albeit more subtly than a people mover would. After all it is an SUV and that is kind of tough and cool. Since I am on the topic of breeding or family transport, the Honda CRV is a very spacious five-seater that is immensely practical. Rear legroom and luggage space is massive...

2016 Honda Civic VTi-L Review

I love this car. I needed to upgrade as I have three children, and my previous car was getting too small for us all to fit in. My only issue has been that the left hand indicator camera sometimes disconnects the phone connectivity, even if it is plugged in with a cable. I have an iPhone...
