Honda Reviews

Although Honda originally built a name for itself as the producer of small 2-cycle motorbike engines, founder Soichiro Honda's first foray into automobiles in 1963 proved to be a huge turning point for the Japanese company. Now one of the largest car manufacturers in the world, Honda has earned a reputation across the globe as a respected maker of affordable high-quality vehicles. In the spirit of self-taught tinkerer Soichiro, Honda has managed to remain innovative throughout the years, operating on the forefront of hybrid technology, motorcycle design and even robotics.

Honda CR-V EX-L AWD

OCTOBER 2012

Honda Accord
Redesigned from the ground up for the 2013 model year, the all-new Honda Accord returns to the simple, straightforward design ethos that has made it a family favorite for decades.

Honda Element 4WD EX
The Honda Element is a hardy four-passenger crossover that aims for the basics, offering a boxy, utilitarian-styled body and two convenient clamshell doors. The vehicle’s tough demeanor shows through with its unit-body construction, side-impact door beams, scratch-resistant utility floor and water-resistant FXC seat fabric.



AUGUST 2010

Honda CR-Z
As the third hybrid in Honda's lineup, the brand-new CR-Z offers drivers the fun look and feel of a sports coupe in a fuel-efficient, environmentally-friendly form.

Honda Accord Crosstour
This beefed-up version of the Honda Accord offers sedan-like looks and handling with the versatility and cargo space of a wagon. Opting for a sloping roofline and lift-up rear hatch in place of a trunk, the Crosstour has nearly three-and-a-half times more storage space than the Accord sedan.



JUNE 2010

Honda Insight
While some go faster and some farther on a single tank, few hybrids can claim to be as affordable—or as much fun—as the brand new Honda Insight. Starting at under $20,000, the Insight proves to possess a pleasant mix of fun and frugality.

Honda Civic Coupe
This five-passenger coupe is a well-rounded economy car, especially given its affordability, small size and sleek appearance. Matching its decent handling, acceleration and fuel economy is a comfortable interior, boasting amenities such a 160-watt audio system with six speakers.



JANUARY 2009

Honda Pilot Touring
This redesigned, family-friendly SUV shows off a masculine body with robust features, such as a four-wheel drive, a V6 engine, disc brakes, and stability and traction controls. The Pilot’s cavernous interior is laden with accessories, which include a power moonroof, a navigation system with voice recognition and a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink.

Honda Civic GX
Sharing the comfortable, well-rounded appeal of the other Civic trims, the ultra-clean GX is powered by compressed natural gas and makes for a futuristic daily driver. Along with its spic-and-span reputation, this sedan is subject to unique perks like tax breaks, free parking at meters and the use of high-occupancy vehicle lanes.



AUGUST 2008

Honda Fit Sport
While the Honda Fit is a steal at under $15,000, its real value can be found at the pump. Earning an impressive 35 mpg highway, this zippy 5-door hatch allows for more fun with less fuel stops.

Exhibiting rounded edges and a rear spoiler, this fun-loving daily driver offers a six-speed transmission and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Inside the cabin are comfortable deep-bolstered seats, a one-touch power moonroof, and a 350-watt audio system.


NOVEMBER 2007

Honda FCX Clarity
As the first hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle available to the public, Honda’s FCX Clarity may not defy gravity, but it certainly defies expectations. This streamlined, exceptionally eco-friendly sedan offers a range of 280 miles and a comparable city and highway fuel economy of 68 mpg.

OCTOBER 2007

2008 Honda Accord

Honda Accord
To commemorate the Accord's 30th birthday, Honda has managed to improve the already-stellar auto. A more spacious interior, superior steering and optimum fuel economy will make drivers want to celebrate the first 30 years and anticipate the next 30.




JANUARY 2007

Honda CR-V
The CR-V has always provided comfortable, practical transportation since it debuted in 1997. This third-generation "Crev" adds a new element to its successful formula: luxury. Sleeker styling and a bevy of up-market features makes this best buy even more attractive.



AUGUST 2006

Honda Fit Sport
A 109-horsepower hatchback has never been so much fun. Quick acceleration, tight handling and nifty interior make this a very special economy car. No longer do you have to feel penalized when driving a sub-$16,000 automobile.



JULY 2006

Honda Civic Hybrid
Hybrids are hot, especially small ones like the Civic and the Toyota Prius. Unlike its main green competition, the Honda feels more like a normal car with communicative steering and less bizarre styling inside and out (although it's still plenty weird).



JUNE 2006

Honda S2000
This roadster sports an incredible 237 horsepower from a mere 2.2-liter engine. With quick, direct steering and one of the best gearboxes on the planet, the S2000 is a fun weekend car that begs to be played with.



MAY 2005

Honda Odyssey
Honda has picked up the ball in the minivan game and is offering the Odyssey, which was a fine vehicle in previous generations but nowhere near what it has become. We loved our fully loaded tester, which capped at $34,610 with a base price of $25,000.



JANUARY 2005

Honda Accord Hybrid
In this green car you get all the creature comforts that a gas model has, such as heated leather seats, great sound components, a comfortable ride and good distribution of space, and you score points with your environmentally-conscious neighbors.
