Honda Reviews

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.
2014 Honda CR-V Review
  • Superb interior space and comfort; big boot; decent dynamics and ride quality; rear vents standard; reverse-view camera standard
  • Engine needs lots of revs; interior not to the same level of snazziness as rivals; updated model coming soon

Honda Odyssey Review: LT3

I can't help it. This crazy car puts a smile on my dial. For those that reach that stage in life - when the need a for a seven-seat people mover can no longer be ignored - your options are limited and it can seem like a death sentence. Luckily it doesn't have to be that way. There are options that are quirky, interesting, stylish and comfortable...

The release of the Honda Civic Hatch DTi-S in 2013 marked a milestone for the Japanese manufacturer. It was the first first diesel-fuelled model released by Honda in Australia. It also features Honda’s ‘magic seats’ making it a standout in its class due to the versatility of its cargo space.
