Honda Comparisons

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...

2021 Honda HR-V RS v Nissan Qashqai Midnight Edition

There are many theories as to the best time for buying a car to garner the most positive deal. Do you wait until the end of any given month? Hold out for a known retail sales period? Or, as in the case of our pair of compact SUVs, wait for a successor to be announced and score the benefit of runout pricing? Both the current generation Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai have been on sale for about eight years, and both have recently had their global replacements revealed...

2021 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD v Skoda Karoq 140TSI Sportline

On paper, these two mid-spec, all-wheel drive, medium SUVs – one European, one Japanese – are similar. On the road, it’s a different story.

2020 Honda Accord Hybrid v Toyota Camry Hybrid comparison

If this were the United States, a comparison of the Honda Accord against the Toyota Camry would be a Battle Royale of top-sellers. Things are different here, though. The Camry absolutely dominates the remnants of a mainstream mid-sized car segment that has halved in overall market share over the past decade...

2020 Honda CR-V v Mazda CX-5 comparison

Honda CR-V versus Mazda CX-5. Which of the two do we recommend as the best petrol AWD medium SUV under 40 grand?

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...

Medium SUV off-road test: Toyota RAV4, Holden Equinox, Mazda CX-5, Renault Koleos, Subaru Forester, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail

We all know your rationale when it comes to buying a medium-sized SUV with all-wheel drive. You want a vehicle with more room for the kid(s) – or kid(s) that are coming – but you also have in the back of your mind that one day you might need to go off-road. Anybody that's done any proper off-roading knows that the type of off-roading you think you're going to do, compared to the type you'll actually do, is very different...

Best medium family SUV 2019: Holden Equinox v Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson v Kia Sportage v Mazda CX-5 v Nissan X-Trail v Renault Koleos v Subaru Forester v Toyota RAV4 v Volkswagen Tiguan

Ten of the best and most popular mid-sized SUVs go head-to-head, but there can only be one winner.

2019 Hyundai Kona v Honda HR-V comparison

With a sprinkling of added freshness injected into ranges in the latter half of 2018, it’s high time we matched up two perennial favourites of the trendy small-crossover set: the Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona. Be it the prolific wider choice on offer in segment or the variety offered within each marque’s particular range, the two variants we’ve lined up here haven’t had much of shake through the CarAdvice garages either...

2019 Holden Trax LTZ v Honda HR-V RS comparison

Small SUVs currently account for around 12 per cent of the Australian new-car market, and it's still growing despite a recent overall decline in sales. Nearly 10,000 of these small crossovers are registered each month, and there are 26 different models competing for that volume right now...
