2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report four – Urban driving

Let's be honest, there's a big perception problem around the 2017 Honda Civic RS hatch. People in the office who ended up taking it for a spin, got into it thinking – because of the RS badge and the aggressive/outspoken styling –that it was going to be a hot hatch. Or, at least a warm hatch...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report three – Infotainment

I don’t know why you’d need a calculator to be a function of your car's infotainment system, but that’s one of the inclusions in the new-generation Honda Civic hatch. It’s even more baffling when you think about the lack of satellite navigation in anything but the top-spec VTi-LX model – but Honda argues buyers of the rest of the models in the range, like our RS hatch, will more likely use their phone for mapping...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report two – interior

If there’s a brand known for cockpit practicality, it’s this one. And up until this generation, the Honda Civic hatch was the standard bearer in the small car segment. But that’s no longer the case, as the 2017 Honda Civic hatch has done away with its brilliant Magic Seat system that allowed you to store anything from pot plants to pushbikes in the back seat area...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review: Long-term report one – introduction

This new-generation 2017 Honda Civic hatch is a big deal. It could be a step too far to suggest that Honda Australia’s future depends on it being a success, but the Japanese brand is sure as hell hoping for big things from it. It’s such a big deal, in fact, we decided to get one for a few months to see if it lives up to the hype...

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...

2017 Honda Civic Type-R - 2016 Paris Motor Show

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. It was only a little over a year ago that Honda revealed its latest Civic Type R, some four years after the debut of its ninth-generation Civic hatch donor...

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.  ...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

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...

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...

Honda's reborn Civic is this year's sweetest concept

'Reborn' Civic? The Civic never died! True enough. Honda's global small car is now into its 10th generation, making it one of the longest-running nameplates on the market. But, like most cars that claim decades-old lineage, the Civic has more than a few times come out of its cocoon bigger than before and with an all-new look...

2018 Honda Civic Type R inspires autonomous lawnmower… and now we want one

As part of Honda celebrating 25 years of two of its most iconic nameplates – Fireblade and Type R – the Japanese brand has revealed two fully-functioning special-edition ‘prototypes’ of its robotic lawnmower known as Miimo...

The Shortlist: Taller driver, smaller car and lots of kilometres

2001 Honda Civic Type R review

I purchased my Honda Civic EP3 Type R back in 2010, and even though I couldn't drive a manual, I still purchased it. And learnt how to drive manual very quickly. It came with Japanese rego stickers and the JDM E-tag system still attached. I was going to purchase a Honda S2000 but my left knee didn't fit without me contorting like a freshly-baked pretzel, so I went with the EP3 Type R...

2000 Honda Civic CXi review

I purchased this little beast as my first car. I got the car with 167,000km on the odo and I am the second female owner. This car has served me well since I bought it in 2014. Learning to drive it in accordance with how the acceleration and handling worked was a long journey, especially after learning in a Mazda 3 SP23. Two doors is often a struggle...

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...

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...
