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?

2021 Honda Civic Type R review: Australian first drive

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.

2020 Honda Civic VTi-LX hatch review

Honda’s small passenger car is a consistent, comfortable daily driver – provided you can actually get in and out of it.

2020 Honda Civic VTi-S hatch review

The Honda Civic hatch has always been a favourite in this country, but now SUVs are Honda's go-to. Still, the revised Civic offers a credible, value-packed alternative.

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.

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.

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." – Honda.com.au. 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...

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...

2022 Honda Civic Type R to retain manual transmission, making plug-in hybrid switch unlikely

The next-generation 2022 Honda Civic Type R will continue to offer a manual transmission, all but confirming it will resist a much-rumoured switch to eco-friendly, plug-in hybrid power. A Honda US representative confirmed on social media that the new Civic Type R will be fitted with a manual gearbox as standard, with the wider Civic hatch range to offer a three-pedal layout on certain variants in the US – despite the recently-revealed 2022 Civic sedan being CVT automatic only...

2022 Honda Civic sedan officially revealed, not coming to Australia

The 2022 Honda Civic sedan has been officially revealed in the US. While the new, 11th-generation Civic sedan might be set to reach American showrooms by September 2021, it won’t be coming to Australia, with Honda’s local arm instead opting to focus on the stronger-selling hatchback body style, which is due to be unveiled within the next few months...

2022 Honda Civic sedan revealed in first official image, Civic hatch to debut in coming months

The 2022 Honda Civic sedan will make its full production debut on April 29, with its Australia-bound hatchback sibling to follow in "several months". A sole image of the new car was released by Honda's American arm overnight, revealing the production Civic sedan will look all but identical to the Civic Prototype unveiled in November 2020, with changes limited to different alloy wheels, revised lower intake grille designs, and a marginally slimmer upper grille with additional body colouring...

2021 Honda Civic Type R: Order books close ahead of July end of production

The 2021 Honda Civic Type R is no longer available to order, as the iconic hot hatch approaches the end of its lifecycle. Honda Australia confirmed to CarAdvice order books for Honda's cult hot hatch closed in late 2020, following customer demand for the mid-life facelifted Civic Type R launched in October 2020 that "exceeded [Honda Australia's] expectations"...

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...

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...
