This will give new car buyers a saving of $1,500 and $3,000 on Japanese and UK sourced models.

”We are pleased to pass on these savings on award winning models such as the Accord Euro and Odyssey to our customers a month early,” said Honda Australia’s General Manager Sales & Marketing, Mr. Stephen Collins.

The Honda City light sedan has a new starting price at $19,490 for the VTi manual.

The Hondas built in Thailand are exempt from the duty reduction because a Free Trade Agreement already exists between Australia and Thailand.
