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.

2017 Honda Civic RS hatch review

See the full article here. I’m going to miss my 2017 Honda Civic RS hatch. Notice how I’ve called it mine? That’s because, after living with it for the past few months, I’ve got to know it really well. And I wish it was mine.  ...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v 2017 Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

When it comes to excitement, Honda's Civic has, the brand admits, been in need of a kick in the pants. This latest generation certainly shows the brand is serious. Thing is... Hyundai's not messing about, either. A challenger brand it may still be, but as our tests show, the i30 is as deserving of your dollar as any Japanese car...

2018 Honda Civic Type R review

See the full article here. The rev needle is pushing 7000rpm as I grip the titanium gear-knob and slam it down into fourth. The speedo needle creeps over 150km/h, while the engine again raises a raucous racket as the end of the straight approaches. I’m in the 2018 Honda Civic Type R at Lausitzring in Germany, and I’m learning pretty rapidly that this car is a handful...

2018 BMW M140i v Ford Focus RS LE v Honda Civic Type R comparison

Front-wheel drive has been part of the classic hot-hatch formula since the genre was ignited in the 1970s. The layout would dominate any all-time-greats list for the category, featuring the likes of the Peugeot 205 GTI, Renault Megane RS, and of course Volkswagen Golf GTI (Marks III and IV excepted!). Yet, there have long been exceptions, of course...

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia. Of this, the majority are hatchbacks instead of three-box sedans, which draw people in based on their improved practicality and generally less conservative design approaches...

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX v Hyundai i30 SR Premium comparison

Two new-generation hatches, hugely important for each brand both in simple number terms and, more importantly, making a strong argument for the attentions of increasingly savvy buyers in the small-car market. One of these cars, the new 2017 Honda Civic, boasts a pedigree nearly 50 years old, with the same name and with a very well-regarded history of solid engineering...

Honda pits virtual Civic Type R against the real deal - VIDEO

Honda has teamed with Turn 10 Studios to see if a real driver, on a real track, is faster than a professional gamer playing Forza Motorsport 7.  IndyCar driver, Graham Rahal, piloted the real Honda Civic Type R around Road Atlanta, while Peter Jeakins handled the virtual laps...

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...

2008 Honda Civic Type R review

Since I saw my Civic on that fateful episode of Top Gear way back in 2007, I straightaway knew it was the car for me. I was definitely in the ‘love’ camp for the love-it or hate-it camps at the time, and despite how it was absolutely slated in that review (which by the way was a laughably rubbish review when you look at finer details), it was the car for me...
