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.

Behind the wheel of the first-generation Honda Civic

Usually, when we have a classic car visit our garage, we undertake an old versus new comparison, pointing out differences in driving, exterior, and technology etc. But not this time. When Honda offered us a drive of the first-generation 1973 Honda Civic it recently acquired, we wanted to give it the spotlight, as its younger sibling, the tenth-generation 2018 Honda Civic, has seen plenty of it since its launch in 2016...

2018 Honda Jazz VTi review

The base $15,990 drive-away Honda Jazz VTi variant is the version that makes the most sense. If you want reliable, roomy and unpretentious motoring that will cost you next to nothing, then this is your next car.

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S review

The 2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S is an excellent offering, but it's disappointingly short on active safety technology.

Flashback: Driving the 1973 Honda Civic

Cars have come so very far in recent decades, but maybe they've lost a little character and charm along way. Here, Mandy takes a spin in a pristine example of the first-generation Honda Civic hatch.

AEB, LDA, LKAS, LOLBBQ... Safety acronyms demystified

AEB, LDA, LDW, RDM, ACC... what on earth does it all mean? (Okay, you got us, 'LOLBBQ' isn't a real safety system...) All of these acronyms for the high-tech safety systems in modern cars can be confusing, especially with each vehicle manufacturer picking their own trademarkable name for features that usually fit under a broad umbrella...

Comparison: 2018 Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson

At this end of the SUV spectrum, it's all about sharp pricing and value for money. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. Here, Paul tests two top competitors in the medium SUV segment.

2018 Honda Civic v Mazda 3 comparison

Do you hate being stuck in traffic jams? Yeah, me too. But, if you're going to be driving a small hatchback, why suffer in an entry-level model? This is where moving up in the model range changes a traffic jam from a chore to a treat. So, if you have around $35,000 burning a hole in your pocket, which premium hatchback should you go for? We lined up the 2018 Honda Civic VTi-LX and the 2018 Mazda 3 SP25 Astina to see which one deserves your hard-earned cash...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S v Hyundai Tucson Active X comparison

SUV sales are going nuts in Australia. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. If you don't have stacks of money to spend, but equally you don't want to be stuck with a base model, we've lined up two cars you should consider if you're after a mid-sized SUV...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L comparison

The all-new Honda CR-V and significantly updated Nissan X-Trail – two big nameplates in one hugely popular mid-sized SUV segment – arrived in the second half of 2017. And in November, we kicked off comparing these two revised protagonists’ ranges by pitching petrol-powered, all-wheel-driven, five-seater flagships in the form of Honda’s VTi-LX and Nissan’s TI versions against one another...

Honda Australia is 2018's most improved brand so far

Honda Australia's momentum continued in June, with the company setting a new monthly record of 7013 units, up 34 per cent over the same month in 2017. The result is a milestone in the company's 49-year history here, and was driven for the most part by its two SUVs, the HR-V and CR-V...

Honda Civic Type R sets new Silverstone GP record - Video

Honda has continued its record run in the Civic Type R, beating its own lap record around the UK's Silverstone GP Circuit.  The new Type R lapped the famous British circuit in just 2:31.32. That's well off the 1:26.60 set by Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1 qualifying last year, but we're willing to forgive the road-going hot hatch for that...

2018 Honda Civic VTi-L review

  I wanted a change from the Honda Civic hatch body type, having owned and driven four of them since the late 1990s. Based on my research and what suited me, I went for a change in the body shape to the sedan. While I really love the versatility of the 'Magic Seats' in my previous hatch models, the sedan does offer space, versatility in fold-down rear seats and generous luggage space...

2006 Honda Stream 2.0 RSZ review

I am living in NZ, where the Honda Stream is a relatively common sight. This is only because NZ imports a large number of second-hand Jap imports. NZ is ‘blessed’ with plenty of Japanese cars that are not normally seen outside of the local market. The mark-two Honda Stream is one of those. Outside of Japan, the Stream was also sold in Malaysia and Singapore I think...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-S review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. This is the first car we have bought in years, having company cars most of my life. The criteria for this newly retired person was ease of entry/exit, sitting a little higher for better vision, flexible carrying space, economy, reliability, and look good in the driveway...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

To many, the new Type R is obnoxiously styled and too over the top, but is that really a bad thing? I thought about it before I put down the deposit for hours on end, batting my own mind wondering if I was making the right decision. Is it too over the top? Honestly, yes it probably is, but is it a negative? Hell no! Ninety-nine per cent of consumer vehicles these days are going for a more conservative look appealing to a much older audience...
