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.

2020 Honda Civic VTi-S sedan review

The Honda Civic continues to be one of Australia’s favourite small cars. We find out how it stacks up in $24,990 VTi-S sedan guise.

2020 Honda Civic RS hatch review

The Honda Civic RS might just be the pick of the range, but it still has a few compromises.

2020 Honda Accord VTi-LX hybrid review

Think hybrid, think Toyota – right? Well, maybe not. Honda has hybrid history, and with its new Accord hybrid it takes a shot at the undersupplied petrol-electric sedan market.

2020 Honda Accord review

Honda concedes it won't sell many 10th generation Accord sedans, but that doesn't mean this updated icon of the road is without merit...

2020 Honda CR-V VTi-S AWD v Mazda CX-5 Maxx Sport AWD comparison

Here we’ve matched up the Honda CR-V VTi-S with the Mazda CX-5 Sport Maxx. Both here are petrol-powered, though the Mazda can be had as diesel. Both here are all-wheel drive, though either can be had as front-drivers. Both are Japanese, of course, and can be had for under $40K before on-roads.

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...

2020 Honda CR-V v Mazda CX-5 comparison

Honda CR-V versus Mazda CX-5. Which of the two do we recommend as the best petrol AWD medium SUV under 40 grand?

2019 Honda Civic RS v Skoda Octavia Sport sedan comparison

The small-sedan segment does sometimes get overlooked as a fertile patch for mixing practical, enjoyable and affordable motoring for a diverse cross-section of buyers, even modestly sized families. Around $22K gets you into the buck-banging basement with Honda’s Civic and Skoda’s Octavia, and both nameplates top out in the $52K and $46K mark, respectively, for high-performance driver’s versions (albeit a hatchback for the Civic)...

Used Honda Civic sells for $US50,000

A used Honda Civic has sold for $US50,000 ($AU72,000) in the US despite being 20 years old and having no special history attached to it, showing Japanese cars are quickly increasing in cult and collector status. In Australia, that would be enough money to buy a brand-new top-of-the-range Honda Civic Type R and have about $20,000 left over in change...

How big is the boot? Every SUV in Australia, ranked smallest to biggest

If you're shopping for an SUV, it's likely you want to know a few important things. A good number of seats, an ample amount of power, an affordable price point, reliability, safety and – possibly most importantly – how much of your life you can cram into the boot...

Struggle street: the cars yet to pass 25 sales so far this year

The new-car market has been competitive and cutthroat for a while, but the first half of 2020 increased the pressure to perform. With production delays due to coronavirus, a raft of exciting new models on the horizon, electric and hybrid cars upping their game and buyers facing financial limitations, every new vehicle on the market had to fight harder than ever to succeed...

The cars we wish were sold in Australia in 2020

We don't want to sound like we're complaining, but sometimes being a small, far-flung, right-hand-drive country has its downsides. While being an Australian certainly has some perks (we'd list them but we just keep coming back to Tim Tams, sprinklers slung over Hills Hoists in summer, and outstanding '80s cricket moustaches), it also means we miss out on a bunch of overseas car brands and models we'd rather like to take for a spin...

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...
