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.

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.

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-S hatch review

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...
