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 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.

2019 Honda CR-V VTi-E7 review

Honda's entry-grade CR-V seven-seater is a modern and capable option for small families who occasionally need an extra row, yet don't relish the idea of housing something as large as a Kluger.

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...

REVIEW: 2020 Honda Accord

Today it’s the Civic, HR-V and CR-V that drive the majority of Honda’s sales here, making the new 2020 Honda Accord more of a halo car. But it's a pretty decent one. We'd appreciate the US market's 2.0-litre turbo and 10-speed auto drivetrain, a better opening price, and a plusher ride, but the great fuel economy, mostly comfortable cabin, excellent driver-assistance tech, and head-turning lines mean there are still reasons to consider this oft-overlooked offering...

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)...

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...

Medium SUV off-road test: Toyota RAV4, Holden Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Renault Koleos, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

Takata crisis: Honda warns 33,000 owners to "stop driving immediately", offers to buy back cars

Australian authorities have warned 33,000 Honda owners to “stop driving their vehicle immediately” – and the cars will be bought back by the car company – as the Takata airbag crisis continues to expand...

2020 Honda Civic hatch updates detailed

The Honda Civic hatch has been given an update for 2020, bringing it into line with the revised sedan version launched in 2019. These changes apply to the Thai-made mainstream versions, not the UK-sourced Type R mega-hatch. Chief item among the changes is the rollout of Honda Sensing active safety tech into the mid-range VTi-L and sporty RS (previously the province of the flagship VTi-LX)...

2020 Honda Civic Type R facelift unveiled

The updated Honda Civic Type R hatch has been revealed at the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon. Externally, the revisions to the Civic Type R are pretty subtle. There's a larger grille for improved engine cooling, and the addition of body-colour swooshes for the fog light surround up front and the fake vents in the rear bumper...

Honda CEO pours cold water on EV demand

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...
