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 Civic - what has changed?

Read the review here. The 10th generation Honda Civic has arrived and it brings with it sweeping changes and a bold new direction for the famous nameplate. But what has changed? We line up a new 10th-gen Honda Civic with its 9th-gen counterpart to see where the key differences are.  ...

2016 Honda Civic RS Sedan Review

The all-new Honda Civic sedan is bigger, better equipped and, for the first time – boosted. With a new-generation turbocharged engine under the bonnet, we want to answer a simple question: is the new Civic any good? Honda calls this car the boldest Civic yet, and there’s some truth to that...

2016 Honda Civic VTi-S Review

The new Honda Civic sedan isn’t far off – but we’ll be waiting a little longer for the new hatch. Sales have slowed with just over 4300 Civic hatch and sedans sold last year compared to segment leader the Toyota Corolla with more than 42,000. There’s no denying the Civic hatch is starting to show its age and needs a makeover...

Honda HR-V v Suzuki Vitara : Comparison Review

While many manufacturers have jumped on the baby SUV bandwagon in recent years, two cars that can’t be accused of following the crowd are the Honda HR-V and the Suzuki Vitara. The original slab-sided, two-door, four-wheel-drive HR-V was a very different beast to today’s high-riding, hatchback-based crossover...

2015 Hyundai Tucson v Honda CR-V : Diesel Comparison Review

The just-released Honda CR-V DTi-L Limited Edition sees a welcome return of a turbo diesel option to the Series II line-up launched late last year. It’s so fresh off the boat that the 1.6-litre mid-sized family hauler missed the start line for our all-paw, all-diesel SUV shootout back in August. Given that new kid Hyundai Tucson Highlander 2...

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 reveals another toy-inspired stand for Goodwood festival

Japanese car maker Honda has revealed the design of its stand for next weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed, paying tribute to the popular Fisher Price toy garage of the ‘70s and ‘80s. After arriving at last year’s Goodwood Festival with a stand dubbed the ‘Honda Playset’ - which featured an assortment of Honda cars in over-sized toy boxes - the brand has once again given us a childhood flashback with an interpretation of the red toy garage that so many owned and loved...

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)...

2007 Honda Jazz VTi Review

Feeling extremely lucky, I purchased an 07 Jazz last year with only 12000kms on the clock! It had had only one owner and was in excellent condition. I enjoyed driving my car so much that, within a year I had clocked up 22000 more kilometres. I called her my little van because anything from IKEA was fair game for my car and I had even fitted a couch into the boot...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review

Sat Nav is a bad joke. Car was sold to me as iPhone ready and the system just doesn't work . Tyre pressure alert has come on every hot day, no one seems to have answers for this . Sunroof is so noisy it's a joke. I made a big mistake buying this car The stupid OK button that needs to be pushed every time you start car. God give me strength...

2012 Honda Civic Review

Life is about compromise. We were all set to get a Golf. After all why wouldn't you? We couldn't quite get the GTI though. All we could afford was the TSI. I tried telling myself it's a turbo AND supercharged. But really what it was saying was more akin to country AND western. It wasn't Gram Parsons, nudie suit wearing, rocked up country either...
