Sport and Sportier – all-new Honda CR-V second look

2024 Honda CR-V review NZ

With the NZ launch of the all-new, sixth generation Honda CR-V still fresh in my mind, Honda NZ thought it best I spent some more time behind the wheel of not one but two of the model variants. The oh so versatile 7-seater ‘Sport’ and the sportier (yet frugal) RS e:HEV hybrid, who am I […]

Dream BIG – 6th Generation Honda CR-V first drive

With five generations of history to draw upon, Honda’s second most popular vehicle (after the Jazz) is back and literally bigger than ever.

Field of Dreams – Honda ZR-V e:HEV review

Honda ZR-V e:Hev review NZ

Fieldays is a popular agricultural annual event held in Hamilton. Not only is it filled with everything a farmer could want or dream of, but it’s also become a bit of a car show for NZ distributors to display their wares – farmers drive cars too.

Soichiro Honda, the founder of Honda is famous for saying ‘if Honda doesn’t race then there is no Honda’ and that emphatic statement is the core ingredient (albeit not exactly F1) of the new Jazz RS e:HEV.

First drive of the new 2023 Honda Civic Type-R

2023 Honda Civic Type-R review NZ

And it was on the legendary Pukekohe racetrack! Bitter/sweet would best describe my feeling upon receiving the invite to the NZ unveiling of the 6th generation Honda Civic Type-R. Bitter because this would probably be the last opportunity I’d have to drive on the iconic Pukekohe NZ racetrack, but oh so sweet as this new […]

According to Japanese automotive company Honda, CR-V stands for ‘Comfortable Runabout Vehicle’, however the acronym has also been referred to as Compact Recreational Vehicle, either way, this Kiwi family fave model has been upgraded and refined recently, and we (finally) got our hands on it. I have to admit that, for one reason or another, […]
