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.

The Honda HR-V isn't the sexiest compact crossover going around, but it has plenty to offer practical buyers.

Design Review: 2003 Honda HSC

At the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda premiered the HSC (Honda Sports Concept), a prototype that looked like a suitable replacement for the ageing NSX which was in its last years of production. Thanks to its carbon-fibre body built on an aluminium chassis, the HSC weighed in at a svelte 1150kg. Power came from a 3...

2019 Renault Megane RS v Civic Type R and Focus RS: Hot hatch encore!

Well, you asked for it. When we ran our last hot hatch comparison, Renault had rudely not yet launched its new Megane RS in Australia. So, we had to leave it out, and we wound up with winners in the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus RS. But now the Megane RS is here... can it dethrone our heroes? We went back to the track to find out.

Honda Civic VTi-LX v Mazda 3 SP25 Astina Comparison

2018 Medium SUV Mega Test

Mid-2018 marked another milestone moment in Australian new-car sales. The mid-sized SUV displaced the small car as Australia’s favourite vehicle type in June. It happened again in August, September and October. It was perhaps only inevitable after SUVs started outselling passenger cars in 2017...

2019 Renault Megane RS v Ford Focus RS v Honda Civic Type R comparison

Does the perfect hot hatch exist? Is your perfect hot hatch someone else's nightmare ride? The latter scenario is probably more likely, but to put the theory to the test, we’ve pitted the all-new Renault Megane RS280 against the reigning champs from our recent hot hatch mega test...

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...

2020 Honda Jazz spied again

In these latest spy photos, the fourth-generation Honda Jazz doesn't look as if it will stray too far from the template laid out by earlier models. Our spy photography agency snapped two prototypes undergoing testing in Europe. One is a regular hatch with a little bit less camouflage than the vehicle spied in September 2018...

Honda NSX drags BMW M5 Competition, AMG E63 S - video

The Honda NSX should be faster than a BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, right? After all, it's a hybrid supercar, and the other two are 'just' four-door sedans. Of course, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have a knack for making their four-door sedans fast enough to scare supercars. With 460kW/760Nm and 450kW/800Nm respectively, the BMW M5 Competition and Mercedes-AMG E63 S are seriously quick...

CarAdvice podcast 144: An expert talks on elderly driver assessment

Honda rules out double-cab ute and full-size SUV for Australia

Honda Australia says there is no prospect of adding a double-cab ute or full-size size seven-seat SUV to its local line-up, despite repeatedly requesting them from head office in Japan. Double-cab utes were the top three sellers outright last month - Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi Triton - and the HiLux has led the Australia new-car market for the past three years in a row...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-Lx Review

Like a lot of you, I struggle with the fear of watching car reviews. I dread the endless teasers preceding the globe's glittering motor shows. I close my eyes when driving down Auckland’s "Green Mile" of car yards. “Why?” Those of you ask who don’t know the fear. It’s because I’m terrified that I’m going to buy yet another car...

2011 Honda Accord Euro review

I wrote a review on my first car, a 2011 Mazda 3 Neo (review was posted as a 2010, my bad) last year, and spoke to its positives. I got a good deal on it, and after a year and a half of ownership and 20,000km put on it, I managed to sell it for more than I paid...

2017 Honda Jazz VTi review

  A nice little red town car and useful for occasional trips further out. This car is shared by myself and the wife. My wife enjoys the interior space it offers and its handy door pockets. She finds it easy to drive, and it feels much bigger once you are in it than the outside looks. A bit like Dr Who's TARDIS...

2011 Honda Accord Euro Luxury review

The third time my beloved WL Caprice was on the back of a tow truck, this time due to a busted coolant hose, I decided enough was enough. I ended up selling it to the RACV repair man who came to tell me what was wrong with it, and thus began my search for a new car. This was very difficult because I would miss the sheer amount of space and comfort, the lazy torque from its engine and whisper quiet travel it guaranteed on road trips...
