2017 Honda Civic Si – First Drive Review by Car and Driver


There is no denying the overall excellence of the 2017 Honda Civic Si. There just isn’t. Adopting as it has the boldly styled forms of Honda’s 10th-generation Civic sedan and coupe, the new Si starts out with a darn good foundation.

The completely redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan has arrived. “That’s a really cool thing what you’re doing there, Robin,” Miguel Sr. says from the second row.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback 1.5T Manual – Earning the Sport label.


We were intrigued to find a Sport badge on this 2017 Civic because for more than a decade now, Honda has been one of the few automakers using the word as if it means something.

2016 Honda Civic Sedan – Long-Term Road Test


We’re halfway through our 40,000-mile test of the 2016 Honda Civic sedan. Continuously variable automatic transmissions have long been derided around here, but the tide is turning some, thanks to powertrains like the 1.5-liter turbo inline-four/CVT combination in our long-term Honda Civic.
