The Honda Quint is a 5-door subcompact car manufactured and marketed by Honda, a Japanese car manufacturer, between 1980 to 1985 for the Japanese market. Honda built the Quint model to replace the Honda Integra. After five years, the company introduced the new Honda Concerto and superseded the Quint model.

History of the Honda Quint

As a five-door liftback variant of the Civic, Honda released the Quint model in the Japanese market in February 1980. They offered it through the Honda Verno retail channel. Originally known as the Honda Quintet, the Quint was made publicly available to international markets in 1981, including Europe and Southeast Asia.

Australian Market

From 1983 through 1985, Jaguar Rover Australia sold the Honda Quint under Australia's "Rover Quintet" nameplate. The Quintet was the very first Honda to have the Rover nameplate when it was built in Japan by Honda. Seats were covered in Moquette fabric and had wood trim like later Honda-based Rovers built in the UK, including the Rover Quintet. Standard equipment included a Pioneer stereo cassette player. A rebadged Honda Integra called the Rover 416i succeeded Rover Quintet.
