2019 Renault Megane RS v Civic Type R and Focus RS: Hot hatch encore!

Well, you asked for it. When we ran our last hot hatch comparison, Renault had rudely not yet launched its new Megane RS in Australia. So, we had to leave it out, and we wound up with winners in the Honda Civic Type R and the Ford Focus RS. But now the Megane RS is here... can it dethrone our heroes? We went back to the track to find out.

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...

Best small car: Ford Focus v Holden Astra v Honda Civic v Hyundai i30 v Kia Cerato v Mazda 3 v Peugeot 308 v Subaru Impreza v Toyota Corolla v Volkswagen Golf

While buyers continue to gravitate toward SUVs, small cars haven’t entirely lost their appeal. They account for about one-in-seven new vehicles sold this year, with this cluster of models forming the vast majority of the segment’s sales. We’re testing flagship variants here, with sticker prices between $30,000 and $40,000...

2022 Honda Civic Type R imagined

A subtler 2022 Honda Civic is coming, but the Type R looks set to stay wild. The next Civic hasn’t gone official just yet, but after patent renderings revealed most of the key visual details, there’s little left to ponder for the mainstream range. The 2022 Civic Type R, on the other hand, remains shrouded in mystery – or, at least, prototype camouflage...

2022 Honda Civic revealed in patent filings

A new Honda model expected to debut as the 2022 Honda Civic has been revealed in recent patent filing uncovered on the CivicXI forum – five years after the current model made its global debut. According to American publisher Car & Driver, Honda has confirmed it will unveil the new Civic around the middle of next year – officially in the northern hemisphere's spring season...

Honda Australia to hold lottery for Civic Type R Limited Edition slots

Honda Australia has announced it will hold a lottery to decide which of its customers will get the chance to own a Civic Type R Limited Edition, the “purest expression of Civic Type R to date.” An allocation of just 20 vehicles will hit the local market and, of those, one will remain in Honda’s custody for promotional duties...

2020 Honda Civic Type R price and specs

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R has received its mid-life update, with hot hatch's focus remaining firmly on performance. Suspension, brakes, and cooling have all been reworked on the refreshed Type R, while buyers will also receive the benefit of Honda's LogR data-logging system – however, the extra gear also comes with a price bump of $3,000 over the outgoing model...

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...

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...

2017 Honda Civic Type R review

I like to think of myself as a bit of a sucker for a good hot hatch. My first car was a 2011 Subaru WRX hatch, which I immediately ruined with a cold air intake and a tune. From there, I went to a BMW 328i because I thought I wanted a bit of luxury. It took six months for me to realise the error of my ways and sell it for an Audi S1...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-Lx Review

Like a lot of you, I struggle with the fear of watching car reviews. I dread the endless teasers preceding the globe's glittering motor shows. I close my eyes when driving down Auckland’s "Green Mile" of car yards. “Why?” Those of you ask who don’t know the fear. It’s because I’m terrified that I’m going to buy yet another car...
