1973 Honda Civic

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. Without the success of the Civic, there is a strong chance we wouldn’t be driving Hondas today. Before the Civic came along, Honda offered roadsters, wagons, sedans and smaller cars like the Kei-car-inspired Z and N360. But sales started to decline by the early ’70s and Honda ...

Honda Civic Type R – Review

Honda has built a weapon that relishes being caned on a difficult road yet retains impressive everyday manners – it might look like a refugee from the Fast and the Furious movie franchise, but underneath those wings and vents is a grown-up and accomplished performance car. The Type R was developed by Japanese drivers for the racetrack. Honda set a world record at the famous Nürburgring in Germany with a time of 7 minutes 4.38seconds for a lap. Despite feeding 228kW/400Nm through just ...

The Honda CR-V – Why compromise on size?

As the rate of Australian families increases, we’re constantly in need for space in our vehicles. But space is a luxury that we often take for granted and is usually reserved for large luxury cars. But the latest, fifth-generational model of the Honda CR-V proves that space isn’t all that expensive. Bringing the option of a seven-seat configuration in their Australian showrooms for the first time. All model variants feature the same powertrain with an upgraded version of the 1.5 ...

2018 Honda Civic Type R Review – 4/5

As we all know, historically Germany’s south suffered through World War Two and remained in ruins. However, over the past thirty so years, Dresden citizens began rebuilding it to its former glory. I guess you can say Honda’s Type R lineage has suffered similarly, as allied forces bombed the badge into retirement in 2012. During this absence, Honda chose to quietly rebuild its performance arm. Welcome, the all-new Civic Type R. Rebuilt and arriving this September in the Australian market ...

What’s the best first car for Learners/P Platers?

Buying the keys to 'freedom' Beginning to drive is daunting for most teenagers these days. Years ago your dad probably would have chucked you in his lap and let you take control of the wheel or if you were lucky, taken you out to a paddock and shown you the ropes. Today learners take one lap around the block and are often scared, but they wouldn't be as worried if they were aware of the great, low budget new vehicles ...
