Honda Accord reviews

Honda has been building Accords since the 1970s, getting steadily bigger and more sophisticated with each generation. The current one is a quality family car - safe, practical and decent to drive. Owners seem to love their Accords too. 

Latest models: Honda Accord (2008-) & Honda Accord Tourer (2008-)

Honda CR-V reviews

The CR-V is Honda's soft-roader answer to the Toyota RAV4. We've had four generations of CR-V to date, the latest one boasting great levels of safety and generous equipment. While it can't match the off-road performance of the Land Rover Freelander, the Honda CR-V is practical, safe and reliable family transport. 

Latest model: Honda CR-V (2012-)

Honda CR-Z reviews

The Honda CR-Z coupé aims to bring a dash of excitement to eco-conscious motoring. It's a petrol-electric hybrid but unlike its sister model, the Honda Insight, it has a chassis set-up designed for driver fun and, unusually for a hybrid, a manual gearbox.

Latest model: Honda CR-Z (2010-)

Honda Civic reviews

The Civic hatchback is Honda's single most important model. It's built in the UK at Honda's Swindon factory and boasts unique styling and a brave cabin design. The Civic competes in the medium car class, against the more conservative Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf.

Latest model: Honda Civic (2012-)

Honda Insight reviews

The hybrid-powered Honda Insight is a direct rival for the Toyota Prius but costs less. It's designed to be as green as possible, and it offers excellent fuel economy and low emissions. But does the Insight really make more sense than a conventional family car?

Latest model: Honda Insight (2009-)

Honda Jazz reviews

The popular and highly accomplished Honda Jazz is now in its second generation. In the supermini category, the Jazz is a real class act. It has a phenomenally flexible cabin and a huge boot as well. Owners love the Jazz too - it's just about the most reliable car in its class. 

Latest models: Honda Jazz Hybrid (2011-) & Honda Jazz (2008-)

    Honda Legend 1

    The Honda Legend has been a consistent - if marginal - player in the luxury car market since the badge first appeared in 1986. The latest model, launched in 2006, is now longer on sale new but it makes an interesting, left-field alternative to a used Audi A6 or Jaguar XF - and one that's very good value. One oddity: it's four-wheel drive only. 

  • Honda FR-V reviews

    1 review available (2004 - 2009) | Used price: from £5,875

    Honda FR-V 1

    The Honda FR-V, built between 2004 and 2009, was a family MPV with an unusual layout - six seats arranged three-abreast across two rows. That means the FR-V is shorter than most MPVs but also wider, which makes it a little trickier to park.

    Honda Stream 3

    Honda's seven-seat people carrier never really caught on, in spite of its many merits, and was discontinued here in 2005. Strong reliability and space for seven make it a worthwhile candidate for large families.

    Honda S2000 10

    Very few sports cars have the edgy qualities that the Honda S2000 does - and none of them has such a convincing reliability record. With an engine that can rev to 9000rpm, the Honda S2000 is a truly exhilarating driver's machine.
