Honda has now been in Australia for 40 years and in order to celebrate the Japanese company is introducing two limited edition models, a Civic and an Accord.
The Honda 40th Anniversary Civic LE (Limited Edition) is based on the 1.8-litre Civic VTi (103 kilowatt i-VTEC engine) but comes standard with 15” alloy wheels, fog lamps, rear parking sensors, tailored floor mats, chrome exhaust finisher and special 40th anniversary badging, approximately $2,000 worth of additional equipment.
The current Civic (eighth-generation) has been around since 2006 and has proved popular with consumers. It achieves a fuel economy of 6.9 litres/100km and puts out only 164g of CO2 emissions per km (manual).
The 40th anniversary Civic is limited to just 800 units and is available with both a 5-speed manual or optional 5-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control.
Prices start at $24,990 drive-away (flat paint, manual transmission).
