Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 11 December 2018

 Over the years we have come to realise there is more to the motor industry than just selling cars. The foundations of Bowater Honda were established in Nelson in 1972, since then a lot has changed within the motoring industry, and with vehicles in general, but we have consistently remained true to our core principles, and the principles that all Honda's are built on. Reliability. Safety. Care for the environment. We also care about our name and that's why we do it better. Like Honda we care about the future, but we are fixed firmly in the present.

The excitement is real. The all new 10th Generation Honda Civic is here.

The all new Honda Civic is the total package. Click here to go to our page dedicated to informing you more and check out the videos we have made. You will get a whole lot more information that you would anywhere else - we love this car so have been making short feature videos about the things we love most!

See. Be Seen. The all new Honda HR-V is the perfect size for all

2015 Honda HR-V

The HR-V is the perfect 5-door crossover vehicle with class leading interior space, loads of luxury and head turning exterior design. The exterior echoes that of a coupe, with sharp, dynamic lines and rear concealed door handles, whilst offering the solid stance and visibility of an SUV.
The interior size defies the exterior dimensions, offering up to five passengers the leg, shoulder and head room often found in a larger SUV. With Honda's unique Magic Seats System and centre Fuel Tank layout, Honda's Engineers have created one of the most spacious and adaptable cabins in its class.

Bowater Honda has settled into a recently refurbished, and very swish looking new showroom, in the Wakatu Carpark - close to the western entrance off Rutherford Street.

This new showroom has been rebuilt to best showcase the exciting range that Honda offers, and also to provide our customers with easier parking and convenience as the new showroom is centrally located and close to popular services such as the Nelson City Council building, the Public Library and upper Trafalgar Street. Being located in a carpark means that there is a whole carpark's worth of parking, as well as several client carparks right outside.

We are very excited to have moved - the new showroom looks amazing and we are looking forward to inviting you to come and enjoy a coffee and cake with us.
