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.

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review : Long-term report three

The Honda HR-V VTi-L has served its term in CarAdvice's long-term fleet. After initially flying under the radar, the HR-V sparked a lot more conversation around the CA office and split opinion among the team.

Honda S660 Review : Quick drive

We can suck up the fact that America’s big pick-up trucks don’t head Down Under, and can handle admiring the odd hypercar from afar, but missing out on Japan’s kei car segment is something just about all of us here at CarAdvice find heartbreaking...

Honda Clarity Review : Quick drive

The new Honda NSX supercar may be the hero of the Japanese brand’s expanding alternative energy family, but it’s the all-new Honda Clarity that’s got the potential to shape the future of automotive propulsion technology like no other car in the brand's line-up - and it’s got the whole industry talking...

2016 Honda NSX Review : Quick drive

When we boarded the bus on Monday morning to Honda’s research and development headquarters in Tochigi, Japan, we had no idea the 2016 Honda NSX was waiting for us at the other end. The feeling that followed, upon learning this en route, could be likened to the nervous excitement felt as a schoolboy when your high school crush sat next to you on the school bus - mixed with the mischievous thrill of stealing some other kid’s bag and dangling it out the window as the bus hurtles the highway...

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.

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...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review

Having a long-term car in the CarAdvice garage is like starting a new relationship. For a while its new and exciting, then you may wonder if you’re getting a little bored, then you’re falling in love again, then little things start to get annoying, then you realise you’re being picky and the good outweighs the bad...

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...

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...

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. With its svelte body profile, low stance, chrome highlights, dual sporty exhausts and seductive blue headlamps, the love affair with the Odyssey begins as soon as you set eyes on it...
