Honda Domani

The Honda Domani is a Japanese mid-size vehicle from Honda Motor Co., Ltd. Produced for the East Asian market from 1992 to 2000 in two generations. The car was produced in sedan and hatchback versions on the platform of the Honda Civic model. The name of the car in translation from Italian means “tomorrow”. The Domani model has established itself as an agile, fast and sporty cornering vehicle. The car was also sold in Europe, North America and South Africa.

Every Honda is a kind of holiday for real automotive gourmets. And Honda Domani, produced only for the domestic Japanese market, is no exception.

Under the sloping hood of the Honda Domani, a four-cylinder gasoline engine with a working volume of just over 1.8 liters and a power of 140 horsepower is transversely mounted. The engine has two overhead camshafts (DOHC) and four valves per cylinder. Engine power is quite modest by Honda standards, especially considering the ability of the local engineers to remove one hundred “horses” per liter. This can be explained by the lack of a proprietary VTEC gas distribution system. But even without that, the engine is high-speed, and gives out its nameplate power only at 6300 rpm, that is, shortly before the lower limit of the maximum speed (6800).

The appearance of the car is devoid of any special design frills – an ordinary Japanese middle-class sedan. Despite the squatness and even some “flatness”, aggression in the Honda Domani is not felt.

Honda Domani has established itself as an exceptionally agile and fast car: sporty sharp reactions to the steering wheel, instant acceleration, overtaking and rebuilding with a large margin of speed. The steering wheel itself is tight, with excellent return action.
