Honda Australia leaps into 2018, up 32 per cent

We’re only one sales month into 2018, but if the most-improved brand award were to be dished out now, then a revitalised Honda would be the runaway winner. The company’s sales grew 32 per cent for the month compared to January 2017’s tally, a growth rate eight-times the market average. Sticking on that theme, it finished eighth overall in-market, between Nissan and Kia...

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch long-term review, 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...

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...
