Every single Honda is a top used car. I know this after spending some quality time in the cab of a recovery lorry recently. “Hondas?” says the driver “Nah, we never pick those up, ever.”

To be honest that’s all you need to know, really, that they won’t break down especially if you are driving to work, your mum’s house or the shops.

However, you might also want a car that is interesting to look at, own and drive, and in recent years that has been a problem.

So here you have it – my pick of some sensible Hondas and some seriously sporty sexy Hondas. The choice, as ever, is yours.

Honda Integra R

The Integra Type R was an uncompromised road-legal racer and totally unsuited to a quiet Sunday afternoon drive.

It offered shattering performance, pin sharp handling and lots of lovely race car details. Only hardcore enthusiasts need apply. However, Honda core values were completely intact so even though this is a Honda with a very raw edge, it is not a temperamental highly-strung special.
