Behind the wheel of the first-generation Honda Civic

Usually, when we have a classic car visit our garage, we undertake an old versus new comparison, pointing out differences in driving, exterior, and technology etc. But not this time. When Honda offered us a drive of the first-generation 1973 Honda Civic it recently acquired, we wanted to give it the spotlight, as its younger sibling, the tenth-generation 2018 Honda Civic, has seen plenty of it since its launch in 2016...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review: road test

We loved the bewinged, turbocharged Civic Type R at the track, but is this hot Honda easier to live with than its predecessor?

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

The Honda Civic Type R has arrived in Oz to try and nab the crown as King Of The Reasonably Priced Fun Cars. But first, we see if the front-drive Nurburgring lap record holder's hotness translates to local roads and track.

Honda Civic VTi-LX v Mazda 3 SP25 Astina Comparison

This comparison proves that buying what everybody else buys isn't always the best idea. Which of these two popular small cars should you consider? Paul Maric has the answer.

Flashback: Driving the 1973 Honda Civic

Cars have come so very far in recent decades, but maybe they've lost a little character and charm along way. Here, Mandy takes a spin in a pristine example of the first-generation Honda Civic hatch.

2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test Video, Part 2: Road

Welcome to Part Two video feature for our recent 2018 Hot Hatch Mega Test. To recap, we've assembled three all-wheel drives and three front-drivers from non-premium marques, with pricing ranging from $43k (i30 N) through to $57,690 (STI Spec R). It's a rich and diverse field with each competitor representing its maker's fastest and most fun-filled efforts...

2018 Honda Civic v Mazda 3 comparison

Do you hate being stuck in traffic jams? Yeah, me too. But, if you're going to be driving a small hatchback, why suffer in an entry-level model? This is where moving up in the model range changes a traffic jam from a chore to a treat. So, if you have around $35,000 burning a hole in your pocket, which premium hatchback should you go for? We lined up the 2018 Honda Civic VTi-LX and the 2018 Mazda 3 SP25 Astina to see which one deserves your hard-earned cash...

Hot hatches have jumped the shark, and we deserve better

I despise the phrase 'jumped the shark'. It comes from a late episode of Happy Days, where Fonzie literally jumps over a shark on water skis – at least, that's what Wikipedia told me. I wasn't born when the shark was first jumped, you see, but the expression still lingers like a bad smell over pop culture...

2019 Honda Civic facelift unveiled in the US

The Honda Civic sedan and coupe range has been given a very mild makeover in one of its most important markets. For the US, the 2019 model year Civic sedan and coupe models gain a standard piano black winged grille, and revised halogen and LED headlight units. There's also a redesigned lower bumper, which includes a full-width front splitter, and chromed C-shaped surround for the fog light pods...

Honda Civic Type R sets Hungaroring lap record - video

The Honda Civic Type R has set another lap record around a European race circuit, this time at the Hungaroring track in Hungary. With former F1 driver (and current NSX Super GT driver) Jenson Button behind the wheel, the Type R set a new standard for front-wheel drive cars with a time of 2 minutes 10.19 seconds...

Honda Civic Type R gets Phoenix Yellow paint job - video

The Honda Civic Type R is hardly what you'd call 'subtle', but an owner in the US has gone a step further to make its hot hatch stand out – and he's documented it on video. HondaPro Jason recently uploaded a new clip to his YouTube channel, showing off his Phoenix Yellow Type R 'FK8', which he claims to be the only one in the world...

2018 Honda Civic VTi-L review

  I wanted a change from the Honda Civic hatch body type, having owned and driven four of them since the late 1990s. Based on my research and what suited me, I went for a change in the body shape to the sedan. While I really love the versatility of the 'Magic Seats' in my previous hatch models, the sedan does offer space, versatility in fold-down rear seats and generous luggage space...

2006 Honda Stream 2.0 RSZ review

I am living in NZ, where the Honda Stream is a relatively common sight. This is only because NZ imports a large number of second-hand Jap imports. NZ is ‘blessed’ with plenty of Japanese cars that are not normally seen outside of the local market. The mark-two Honda Stream is one of those. Outside of Japan, the Stream was also sold in Malaysia and Singapore I think...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

To many, the new Type R is obnoxiously styled and too over the top, but is that really a bad thing? I thought about it before I put down the deposit for hours on end, batting my own mind wondering if I was making the right decision. Is it too over the top? Honestly, yes it probably is, but is it a negative? Hell no! Ninety-nine per cent of consumer vehicles these days are going for a more conservative look appealing to a much older audience...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-S review

I am not an auto expert but I am a daily user, so I will try my best to review from my perspective. I had to replace my 2007 Honda Civic VTi-L after 10 years of use, and eventually ended up buying another Civic – this time it is a 2017 VTi-S. Before finalising my car, I had test-driven a few SUVs (It felt like I was the one taking the car home rather than the car taking me home...
