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 Civic RS sedan review

There are not many models for which you can say the sedan is more a looker than the hatch, but this Civic RS pulls it off very well.

2019 Honda Civic VTi-L sedan review

The Civic VTi-L now gets active safety kit for 2019, but is that enough to kick it with the class leaders?

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...

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...

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 Civic hatch: Facelift coming early 2020

Honda's updated Civic hatchback will arrive in Australia early in 2020, with a set of small changes to keep it fresh amid strong competition. Honda Australia says the facelifted hatch will be "a similar update to the one Civic sedan received in February this year" – which means minor styling and trim tweaks are in the works, as previewed by the 2020 Civic hatch revealed for Europe earlier this week...

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...
