The Honda Quint was a subcompact car manufactured by Honda in Japan from 1980 to 1985. It was introduced in February 1980 in Japan as an five-door liftback version Honda Civic, being more upscale than the Civic, and was sold at the Honda Verno sales channel in Japan. The Quint was made available to export markets including Europe and Southeast Asia in 1981, with the export name being Honda Quintet. Beginning in 1983, this model was also sold in Australia as the Rover Quintet. The Quint was succeeded by the Honda Quint Integra in 1985.

The car came with a 1,602 cc four-cylinder engine which develops 80 PS (59 kW) and 126.5 N·m (93.3 lb·ft) of torque. This engine was coupled with a five-speed manual transmission or an optional three-speed semi-automatic. Speed sensitive power steering and fully independent suspension with MacPherson struts and front and rear anti-roll bars were also featured. Japanese specified versions claim 90 PS (66 kW) JIS.

Australia

Jaguar Rover Australia retailed the Honda Quint in Australia under the "Rover Quintet" name from 1983 through to 1985. Manufactured in Japan by Honda, the Quintet was the first Honda to carry the Rover badge, and was replaced by the Rover 416i, a rebadged version of the Honda Integra. As the Rover Quintet, the interior received wood trim, as typified in the later Honda-based Rovers made in Britain, and the seats were trimmed in Moquette cloth. A Pioneer stereo radio cassette was standard.
