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.

2016 Honda Jazz VTi-S Review: Long-term report two - infotainment UPDATED

UPDATE: Model-year 2017 examples of the Jazz now feature an updated infotainment system, beyond the system reviewed here. (Honda had failed to alert media, slipping the update in under the radar.) See the bottom of this review for details. As we mentioned in our initial piece on our greenish-yellow 2016 Honda Jazz VTi-S, the little hatchback is in for a different approach for this series of long-term updates...

Read the full article here. We needed another handy little city car for the Sydney office, and plenty of makes and models were bandied around. But this, the 2016 Honda Jazz VTi-S, is the model we chose as our latest live-in lover.    ...

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. As we’ve come to find out, both of these city cars – the Honda built in Thailand and the Suzuki built in India – have above-average interior space, meaning both will likely appeal to buyers who want a light car that isn’t light on practicality...

Honda Civic VTi-S v Hyundai Elantra Active v Skoda Octavia Ambition comparison

Demand for small sedans has been a little stagnant of late, with people increasingly drawn to hatchbacks and crossover SUVs. Nevertheless, the battle for sales supremacy in this traditional part of the market is intensely fought, and there is no lack of quality options...

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...

2008 Honda Accord Euro Luxury Review

We bought our 6-speed manual CL9 Luxury Euro new in February 2008 – it was one of the last CL9 models left in the country prior to the CU2 (the last, and larger Euro) release. Our Euro is now at ~92,xxxkms. Initial run-in seemed to take forever – between 2,000 to 3,000kms before it loosened-up...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review

Having owned a HRV for over a year there has been nothing to complain about but lots to rave about. It looks great and people have commented that it looks like a BMW. The interior is fantastic, sumptuous leather seats that are heated for those cold winter days, a full length sunroof and an interior layout that has everything in its right place...

2016 Honda HR-V VTi-S Review

I purchased our HRV STi in Jan 2016 and am very satisfied overall. Economy: tried E10 but not worth it-consumption increases. Tried R95 but not worth it either. Consumption decreases but only by about 5% whereas cost is 10-12% more. 91Ron gives us approx. 8.5km/L around town and 6.8km/L country (50% with air con, cruise at 102 kph)...
