Comparison: Honda BR-V 1.5 Manual vs CVT

Long term test: 2018 Honda Amaze 1.2 Comfort

The new wave

After years of turbo-diesel automatics, yodeling CVT’s and GreenDream gobbledygook, my overall impression of Honda has been yanked perilously close to its original state by this new 2018 Amaze 1.2 Comfort.

Padtoets: 2018 Honda Jazz Sport

Oorambisie vir Honda

Honda het onlangs die nuwe Civic Type R (FK8) tesame met die nuwe Jazz 1.5 Sport (voorheen bekend as die Dynamic) by die Dezzi resies baan in Durban geloods. Terwyl die Civic Type R ons asems weggeslaan het met ‘n kombinasie van uitstekende ingeneurswese en geweldige pret, het die Honda Jazz Sport ons met ‘n effense kopkrap-situasie gelos.
