Honda CR-V, always a great family SUV

In Car Reviews, Honda, Hybrid by Neil Lyndon

You see them everywhere, yet you probably never notice them. This car exists so far under the automotive radar that it’s almost subterranean. At the same time, however, it has a fair claim to being one of the best “soft-roader” SUVs on the market and one of the very best of all family cars, as it proves again with the …

Honda Jazz e:HEV, pretty nifty

In Car Reviews, Honda, Hybrid by Robin Roberts

The Honda Jazz e:HEV, a lot more car than you bargained for. The Jazz is like a transport Tardis, thanks to its nifty Magic Seats, which can hold three passengers in the back and fold entirely flat to transform the vehicle into a van-type carrier. Any competitors can’t do that in this segment.  From about £19,000 to £24,600, the new …

Reviewed – Honda Civic 1.0T EX Sport Line

In Car Reviews, Honda by Kieran Bicknell

While the current-generation Civic might be getting old, it still represents fantastic value for money in terms of practicality, driving enjoyment and style, and no model embodies this more than the Civic ‘Sport Line’.

Honda Jazz Crosstar practical and wallet friendly

In Car Reviews, Honda by Kieran Bicknell

The latest Honda Jazz came to me on test a week after I had voted for the new Land Rover Defender in a Car of the Year poll. To my mind, that distinction puts it firmly in the same bracket as its predecessors. I have lost count of the number of friends who have bought a Honda Jazz as a …
