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 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 Civic sedan and coupe : Detroit Auto Show 2016

Read the article here. The tenth-generation 2016 Honda Civic sedan has just been unveiled in California, and it has a much bolder sense of style in an attempt to bring the carmaker back to its sporty roots. According to John Mendel, executive vice president of Honda North America, “This tenth-generation Civic is quite simply the most ambitious remake of Civic we’ve ever done”...

Honda Ridgeline : Detroit Auto Show 2016

Read the article here. The second-generation Honda Ridgeline ute has made its debut at the 2016 Detroit auto show sporting a much more conservative and traditional design than the original. As with the original Ridgeline, the new model eschews the body-on-frame construction of its mid-size rivals in the States, using a unibody platform that seems to be shared largely with the latest-generation Pilot SUV...

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...

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...

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...

2006 Honda Odyssey Review

If there ever was an honest used car ad for my Honda Odyssey, I'd imagine it would sound something like this: "2006 HONDA ODYSSEY LUXURY AUTO One owner , travelled a whopping 260,000 kilometers. Higher praise could not be bestowed upon any other car.
