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 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...

2019 Honda Civic VTi-LX sedan review

The flagship Honda Civic sedan offers a well-rounded package, though struggles to stand out against an ever-evolving competitor set.

2019 Honda Civic Type R review

Big wings, big wheels, big power. Honda has thrown the kitchen sink at the Civic Type R, and the result is a finely tuned front-drive weapon.

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)...

Honda to adopt fixed prices, will scale back the number of showrooms in 2021

Japanese car maker Honda will not leave Australia but it will introduce a fixed price “one price everywhere” sales model, reduce the choice of cars it sells, and scale back the number of showrooms. However, Honda Australia says reports that the dealer network will be slashed from 105 showrooms to about a dozen nationally are "not accurate" and the number of sites "is not expected to materially change, but the number of owners will be reduced"...

Honda Australia has 400 'expressions of interest' for 2021 Civic Type R Limited Edition, may only get 20 cars

Honda Australia has confirmed it has received more than 400 "expressions of interest" for the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition, following Honda UK's announcement that its allocation of just 20 examples of the track-focused hot-hatch have been snapped up. Unlike the UK, Honda Australia's allocation of the Limited Edition is still unconfirmed as the model is not yet formally on sale here...

New automatic cars priced under $20,000 in Australia

There's an old saying that you should spend three months' salary on an engagement ring. According to consumer advice site finder.com.au, a similar rule applies when buying new cars. Ideally, it suggests, you shouldn't spend more than 15 per cent of your annual income on the purchase price of a car...

Every car leaving the Australian market in 2020

Although we're only a few months into the year, 2020 has already seen the exit of Holden, the cancellation of the Geneva Motor Show and Australian Grand Prix due to coronavirus, and the steady decline of new car sales. In a challenging climate, it's perhaps unsurprising that carmakers are reducing their ranges, discontinuing under-performers and replacing older models with hybrids, electric cars or new creations altogether...

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...

2003 Honda Jazz VTi review

I purchased an '03 Honda Jazz VTi 14 months ago because I was sick of driving my jacked-up, highly modified 4x4 Toyota Hilux to work and back every day. I work a white-collar office job and don't need my ute Monday to Friday, but I live in the CUB (cashed-up bogan) life on the weekend, frequently going camping, dirt biking, mountain biking etc which requires me to own a dual-cab ute...

2006 Honda Jazz VTi review

GETTING JAZZY I purchased my 2006 Honda Jazz VTi in 2017 with 185,000kms on the clock, looking for something cheap, economical, zippy and reliable. To my delight, the Jazz has exceeded in fulfilling these requirements. The Jazz was an upgrade from my first car, a 1998 Toyota Vienta (read Camry) V6...
