I’ve test driven Honda Euros a couple of times. It is hard not to be impressed.
Everything is where you want it, it’s comfortable, and not a bad looker. And as it’s Honda, reliability should be A1.
Then a reality check – you put your foot on the pedal – and not a lot happens (no it’s not the brake pedal). It’s a car that likes at least 4000rpm to move along. Once it gets going, she’s a fine, but the engine is a touch noisy when you have a go.
A little cramped in the back if you’re an adult, but with kids, all’s good.
I’d buy a luxury auto – ideal to potter around the suburbs in, feeling like you’re in a car that costs $20k more (eg Merc or BMW).
Honda will further need to tweak the design to keep up with the pack, and 10% more power and torque would be a bonus.
Otherwise it’s a good alternative for those who want to downsize from a Commodore or Falcon.
