Consistently ranking either at or near the top of reliability surveys, Honda cars are not far from automotive engineering perfection. The 69 year old firm's UK market share increased by 14 per cent in 2016, indicating the Japanese are getting plenty of things right over here in Blighty. The Honda range is not particularly varied, but offers a good choice across the board, without any of the strange niches that other manufacturers are trying to create. A familiar site on British roads since the 1980s is the Honda Civic, a family hatchback with a generous boot and innovative interior. Also in the range is the Honda Jazz supermini and two very practical SUVs - the Honda CRV and Honda HRV.
