The Honda Concerto (ホンダ・コンチェルト) wis an automobile produced bi the Breetish division o the Japanese manufacturer, frae 1988 tae 1994. Lik its predecessor, the Honda Ballade, it shared its platform wi a Rover product, namely the Rover 200 an Rover 400. The Concerto wis an aa manufactured an sauld in Japan. The Concerto wis sauld in baith liftback an sedan form. In maist European kintras, an Australie, it wis sauld as the 5-door liftback version ae, as a replacement for the discontinued Honda Integra 5-door liftback. The saloon version lastit till 1993 for maist naitions, especially in the Unitit Kinrick whaur sales wur lawer compared tae the Rover 200 an Rover 400 Series, which wis considered the mair upmarket o the twa vehicles.

Ingine choices wur:

  • 1.4 L (SOHC carb) wi 88 hp DIN (65 kW)
  • 1.5 L (SOHC SPI) wi 90 hp DIN (66 kW)
  • 1.6 L (SOHC MPI) wi 115 hp DIN (85 kW)
  • 1.6 L (DOHC MPI) wi 130 hp DIN (96 kW)
  • 1.6 L (DOHC carb) wi 106 hp DIN (80 kW)
  • 1.8 TD turbodiesel, Peugeot-ingined, sauld in Fraunce, Italy an Portugal ae.

In Japan an ither Asian/Australasian kintras, the Concerto wis an aa available wi an SOHC 1.6L dual carb ingine. 4WD wis an aa an option in Japan. Interestingly the Concerto range featurt a 1.6 16v SOHC ingine, quite an unuisual design tae hae saxteen valves on a single cam.

The Concerto wis sauld internaitionally on a platform which wis lairger than the popular Civic. Juist lik the 5-door Integra it replaced, it affered mair features than the Civic an wis mair prestige mercat.

Ane difference atween the Breetish biggit an Japanese biggit Concertos wis that the front suspension - versions biggit in Swindon haed MacPherson struts unlik thair Japanese coonterparts which haed double wishbones.

Honda stopt manufacturin the Concerto in Great Breetain when its pairtner, Rover, wis taken ower bi BMW in 1994.

Up till that pynt the twa companies haed been merged up tae 20% equally wi ilk ither an haed collaboratit wi this model an mony ithers in baith companies ranges. The Concerto's replacement in Japan wis the Domani, which wis the basis for the succeedin Rover 400 an 45. In Europe, 5-door hatchback an estate variants o the Domani wur sauld as a Civic, in order tae avoid haein twa different nameplates in the lawer midsize segment.
