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.

Family haulers: Volkswagen Multivan v Honda Odyssey

When you need to move a lot of people around, your options are limited. A seven-seat SUV might not have the 'daggy' stereotype of a people mover, but you can't argue against the practicality of a van. Over the Easter long weekend my family descended on my tiny apartment with big plans to explore the city and experience everything Sydney has to offer...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

See the full article here. The rev needle is pushing 7000rpm as I grip the titanium gear-knob and slam it down into fourth. The speedo needle creeps over 150km/h, while the engine again raises a raucous racket as the end of the straight approaches. I’m in the 2018 Honda Civic Type R at Lausitzring in Germany, and I’m learning pretty rapidly that this car is a handful...

2016 Honda Jazz VTi-S Review: Long-term report one

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.    ...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

Two new-generation hatches, hugely important for each brand both in simple number terms and, more importantly, making a strong argument for the attentions of increasingly savvy buyers in the small-car market. One of these cars, the new 2017 Honda Civic, boasts a pedigree nearly 50 years old, with the same name and with a very well-regarded history of solid engineering...

Honda Jazz VTi v Kia Rio S comparison

Whether you're looking for a first car, or just something to take down to the station every day, or maybe even a last car, there are some fairly fantastic brand-new vehicles out there for as little as $15,000. We've got two such compact cars here – the all-new 2017 Kia Rio and the just-refreshed 2017 Honda Jazz...

Small sedan comparison: Toyota Corolla Ascent v Honda Civic VTi-S v Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L

The last time we took a close look at the small sedan segment in the form of a comprehensive three-way comparison, the new-generation Honda Civic stole the cookies from the previous segment leader, the Hyundai Elantra and a slightly more left field combatant, the Skoda Octavia...

Updated 6:07PM, 21/07/17. A faulty Takata airbag is likely to blame for the first death of a driver in Australia last week, NSW Police has determined, due to corroded high-speed shrapnel expelled from the casing during airbag deployment.

Honda baby NSX's interior and exterior revealed in patent filing

Honda has filed a patent for the interior of its "baby NSX" with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The renders were discovered by AutoGuide and Autocar. Although they show a vehicle without a front windscreen, we believe that's because the patent only relates to the interior. Also of note, the car has an aircraft-style steering wheel with a flattened top and bottom...

2013-16 Honda Accord recalled for fire risk

Honda Australia has issued a recall for 4811 examples of its Accord sedan sold between March 2013 and February 2016, over concerns a faulty battery sensor could cause a fire hazard.

2007 Honda Jazz GLi Review

Sometimes things are not what they seem. Within the confines of their covers, hidden virtues reside, unseen from casual glances and glossed over by superficial eyes. As the axiom goes; “do not judge a book by its cover” because a book’s sketchy facade may mask a surprising performance from an eloquent engineer of words...

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...
