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.

2021 Honda HR-V RS review

It might be getting long in the tooth, but a late-life update has added some modern relevance to the Honda HR-V.

Five ways Japan's bubble economy bettered today's cars

In the mid 1980s, the Japanese economic bubble was brewing. While this isn't Economics Advice, let's quickly understand why it was bubbling along. Japan's main export was automobiles. With the Bank of Japan sinking significant capital into this important economic sector, the industry flourished, and production capability swelled...

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...

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.

2019 Skoda Octavia Sport v Honda Civic RS: small 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. Here we have the 2019 Honda Civic RS v Skoda Octavia Sport sedan comparison, which is our pick of these mid-priced medium-grade sporty sedans...

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)...

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...
