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.

We take the only Honda E in Australia for a quick spin.

Modern Classic Review: 1993 Honda NSX

Many famous names are attached to the NSX, including Ayrton Senna and Gordon Murray. What's it like more than 30 years on?

2021 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD review

Honda’s top-spec medium SUV might seem run-of-the-mill, but it’s got enough to please even the pickiest of shoppers.

2021 Honda Civic RS sedan review

The hatch gets all the focus, but the RS sedan is a competitive offering within the Honda Civic range. Is it as practical as the hatch, though?

Video: 2021 Honda Civic Type R review at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

Honda's updated Civic Type R has arrived in Australia. Already a bit of a hot hatch legend, this new version continues to improve the breed.

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...

2007 Honda Civic Type R (FD2) v 2021 Honda Civic Type R (FK8) comparison

"Due to higher than anticipated demand, the Civic Type R is currently not available to order." – That means if you want a Racing Blue 2021 example – a new colour not available before the Type R's late 2020 update – you could be forever waiting. The plant that manufactures the 2021 Honda Civic Type R is set to cease production in July, which means global production allocation is already set in stone...

2021 Honda HR-V RS v Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition

There are many theories as to the best time for buying a car to garner the most positive deal. Do you wait until the end of any given month? Hold out for a known retail sales period? Or, as in the case of our pair of compact SUVs, wait for a successor to be announced and score the benefit of runout pricing? Both the current generation Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai have been on sale for about eight years, and both have recently had their global replacements revealed...

2021 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD v Skoda Karoq 140TSI Sportline

On paper, these two mid-spec, all-wheel drive, medium SUVs – one European, one Japanese – are similar. On the road, it’s a different story.

Honda fixed pricing for new cars starts in Australia from today

From today, Honda customers will not be able to negotiate on price when buying a new car after a radical overhaul of its traditional business model. Under the restructure, Honda has reduced the number of dealers nationally from 105 outlets to 90. Some outlets have separated their showrooms and service centres, while the company will also experiment with “pop up” stores in shopping malls...

What if Honda built a dual-cab ute? 2022 Honda Tourmaster imagined

Dual-cab utes have been Australia's top-selling vehicles for the past five years and are on track to make it six in a row this year. Although it hasn't been widely reported, before its shutdown Holden discussed with Honda the possibility of sharing a ute...

2022 Honda Civic Type R spied testing, launch confirmed for 2022

The next-generation 2022 Honda Civic Type R has been spied testing, ahead of its global launch planned for 2022. Less than 24 hours after the unveiling of the new-generation Civic hatch, our spy photography partners snapped Honda's halo hot hatch testing on European roads – and despite the 11th-generation Civic's move to a more conservative style, it's clear the Type R will lose little of its extroverted appearance...

2011 Honda Odyssey Luxury review

2011 saw William and Kate tying the knot, Charlie Sheen causing enough trouble in Vegas to see him relinquish his role in Two and a Half Men to the very wooden Ashton Kutcher, and I was killing time at the local Honda dealer while my wife was shopping. Whilst it was not necessarily love at first sight, something about the glistening pearl white Odyssey caught my eye...

2019 Honda Civic VTi-L Review

NOTE: CarAdvice editorial photos used as none were provided by the owner. With a minor facelift from its previous "bold statement" restructure in 2016, the new Civic sedan still has the same number of standard models (five), starting from the base VTi all the way to the top VTi-LX...

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...
