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 Type R v Hyundai i30 Fastback N comparison

The Hyundai i30 Fastback N is a striking proposition. While the hatch lines up squarely against a raft of familiar hot hatch luminaries such as the Golf GTI and Megane RS, its longer and slinkier sibling is harder to pigeonhole. We’ve already pitched it against a fellow outsider in the form of Skoda’s criminally under-appreciated Octavia RS...

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...

2018 Honda Civic VTi review

Great stories usually start with epic background, but I must start my review with a broken gearbox. Not an epic start, but still a start nonetheless. When my Mitsubishi Lancer’s box finally gave up, I was on the market for a new car and tried several sedans before settling in to Honda Civic VTi...
