Honda

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.

Video: 2021 Honda Civic Type R review at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

Honda's updated Civic Type R has arrived in Australia. Already a bit of a hot hatch legend, this new version continues to improve the breed.

Video: 2021 Honda CR-V VTi-L first drive review

Australians love SUVs, and the 2021 Honda CR-V slots right into one of the most competitive segments in the Australian new car market. Plenty of family buyers have moved away from the traditional large sedan and headed straight for dual-cabs, there’s no disputing that fact. However, a whole other subsection has also headed toward medium and large SUVs...

2020 Honda HR-V VTi-LX review

Regardless of what you drive, you could be forgiven for suffering from small-SUV fatigue. It feels as though every week there’s a new model announced, or an old model being reinvigorated to vie for our attention. One such forgotten contender is the 2020 Honda HR-V VTi-LX – an unassumingly attractive car with ample cabin space and a premium equipment offering, all for under $40,000...

2021 Honda HR-V RS v Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition

There are many theories as to the best time for buying a car to garner the most positive deal. Do you wait until the end of any given month? Hold out for a known retail sales period? Or, as in the case of our pair of compact SUVs, wait for a successor to be announced and score the benefit of runout pricing? Both the current generation Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai have been on sale for about eight years, and both have recently had their global replacements revealed...

2021 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD v Skoda Karoq 140TSI Sportline

On paper, these two mid-spec, all-wheel drive, medium SUVs – one European, one Japanese – are similar. On the road, it’s a different story.

2020 Honda Accord Hybrid v Toyota Camry Hybrid comparison

If this were the United States, a comparison of the Honda Accord against the Toyota Camry would be a Battle Royale of top-sellers. Things are different here, though. The Camry absolutely dominates the remnants of a mainstream mid-sized car segment that has halved in overall market share over the past decade...

2005 Honda Integra Type S review

As a die-hard car nut raised on a diet of Top Gear and Gran Turismo, when it came to purchasing my first car, I was set on something reasonably quick, engaging to drive and most importantly, having a manual gearbox...

2008 Honda Accord Euro Luxury Navi review

Even for a car that’s now 12 years old, Honda’s knack for style, flair and overall quality is clear. I bought our Milano (pink, and more on this later) red Accord Euro Luxury Navi for a song, as a wholesale customer trade in. And you’ll be hard pressed to find more car for the money. This is my wife’s car, and by 2008 standards it is loaded with fruit...

2008 Honda Civic VTi-L review

My family and I recently purchased a used 2008 Honda Civic VTI-L after a job promotion required us getting a second car. One reason for this purchase was the vehicle was in excellent condition for its age and Honda's reputation for making reliable, good quality cars. This review is based on one month of ownership...

2003 Honda CR-V (4x4) Sport review

I have owned many different vehicles since I got my licence at the age of 18. My very first Honda Scamp was a very reliable vehicle that was extra cheap to run and operate, although it was very basic and did not have air-conditioning, power steering or a good sound system. Now I am 63 and this is the second Honda that I have owned...
