Honda Civic hatch, why no Magic Seats?

The all-new Honda Civic hatch may be one of the most practical cars in its segment, but it lacks a crucial item that used to be standard: Magic Seats. The Honda Magic Seats system in the previous-generation Civic hatch would allow the seat bases to be folded up to allow a large storage area, and the seat backs could also be folded down flat for extra convenience...

Honda defends safety stance on Civic

The all-new Honda Civic hatch brings with it an impressive array of safety technology – but only if you buy the most expensive model. That could be perceived as a problem for Honda, because the the Civic - whether you choose the new hatch or the existing sedan - doesn’t have autonomous emergency braking (AEB) in the four more affordable models in the range, but rivals such as the Mazda 3 have the tech fitted throughout...

To mark the launch of the all-new Honda Civic hatch, the brand’s local arm has added a unique Orange Edition version to the range.

Honda Civic hatch to boost sales by more than 50 per cent

The 2017 Honda Civic hatch has arrived on sale in Australia, with the popular body style set to more than double sales of the Japanese brand’s small car offering.

Old nameplates returning to form

There are many market trends in action this year, but one of the more novel is the resurgence - or re-emergence - of old nameplates. Running through some cars experiencing good growth is a bit like looking at a new car guide from early 2000s.
