Honda Australia has launched its annual clearance sale, offering City, Civic sedan, CR-V and Accord buyers free registration and compulsory third party insurance until the end of the year.
The offer should save most customers between $500 and $1000, depending on the price of registration and CTP, which varies from state to state.
The offer comes as Honda Australia looks to end 2013 on a high. The Japanese brand’s sales were up 25 per cent to the end of September at 31,659 units, putting the brand in ninth position overall in terms of national sales ahead of Japanese rival Subaru.
The CR-V is responsible for much of the increase, with sales of that model almost quadrupling compared with 2012 to 9962 units, following the launch of the fourth-generation model in December. Honda expects the upward trend to continue in 2014 following the launch of the CR-V diesel in January.
The Accord (2380 sales, up 202 per cent) and Civic (11,564 sales, up 61 per cent) have also enjoyed strong sales this year, offsetting big drops from the ageing Accord Euro (1449 sales, down 73 per cent) and Jazz (4817 sales, down 32 per cent), the latter set to be replaced by an all-new model in 2014.
Honda City sales are up 18 per cent so far this year to 545 units.
The City is priced from $16,490, the Civic sedan from $19,490, the CR-V from $27,490 and the Accord from $31,490.
