Honda’s Civic Sedan Range Upgraded – Jul 14, 2014– Melbourne, Australia (AutoReleased) – One of Australia’s favourite sedans – the Honda Civic – has received a number of significant upgrades including a revised variant line-up, new styling, more standard features and a new Manufacturer’s List Price from just $18,490*.
“The Civic is one of Honda’s most successful global nameplates and one of the first models introduced in Australia back in the 1970s,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins. “Since then, the Civic has been an Australian favourite and celebrated forty years of production with close to 23 million sold around the world.
“We’ve added a number of new features to the Civic sedan and a renamed variant line-up, offering customers more choice across the Civic range,” Mr. Collins said.
The most notable change is the new variant line-up: Vi, VTi, VTi-S, VTi-L and Sport. On the outside, the Civic sedan has a new grille design and additional metallic colours of Modern Steel and Golden Brown.
The Civic Vi is now the entry to the range and features a 1.8 litre i-VTEC engine coupled only with a five-speed manual transmission. It starts from just $18,490*, a price reduction of $1,000 over the previous equivalent VTi model (manual transmission).
From the new VTi and above, standard features now include Honda’s Display Audio system, reversing camera, five-speed automatic transmission and alloy wheels (new VTi has 15-inch alloys).
The VTi-S receives 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome door handles and Smart Entry, for the same price as the previous equivalent VTi-L model.
The new VTi-L adds leather-appointed seats, rear parking sensors, electrically retractable mirrors and a new 16-inch alloy wheel design, for the same price as the previous equivalent VTi-L navigation model.
The Sport receives an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and a new colour scheme for its 17-inch alloy wheels, again with no change in price to the previous Sport model.
The new Civic sedan range is available nationally in Honda Dealerships.
