Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Overpriced in the UK.
Servicing expensive, but it's a quality item and this keeps other costs down.
On the road
One of the most intense motoring experiences you can have. The car is alive and fantastically responsive. Darty, flat handling. Pin-sharp steering. Can be difficult to drive smoothly in town. Quick accelerator balanced perfectly to clutch and gearbox.
Reviews generally need to be read in the context of what car the reviewer has previously driven. Very fast above 6000rpm. My own view is that slightly more power, and definitely more torque, is required (187bhp is standard).
Living with it
I love how Honda created a bespoke car - you can still rev it to 9,000rpm repeatedly and it will remain faithful.
Does look dated, but has unbeatable combination of high technology and an untarnished image. Not the car of choice for the chav (unlike some BMWs).
Good seats, although rear seats have almost no shaping and are slightly uncomfortable.
Security and Service
Knowledgable and attentive.
