Prices of the Honda Civic small car have risen for the final months of 2020, with price increases across the hatch and sedan ranges by as much as $1000.

The entry-level Civic VTi variant has seen the largest rise, increasing in price by $1000, while Honda's higher-spec VTi-L and sport-oriented RS models come in $750 dearer than before.

Lower-spec VTi-S variants have risen in price the least of all model grades, now costing $350 more, while the flagship, non-performance VTi-LX can now be had for $550 more.

The sole trim grade excluded from the recent price increases – which came into effect in November – is the hero Civic Type R hot hatch, which retains its $54,990 before on-road costs sticker.
