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.

OCTOBER 2012

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.
