Honda Australia has celebrated its Civic small car’s recent sales success with a new special edition for buyers looking for more luxury from their Civic. The 2018 Honda Civic VTi-S Luxe adds a number of added luxury items to the list of the Civic VTi-S on which it’s based, and is now on sale in Honda dealerships.
Priced from $26,490 plus on-road costs, the Civic VTi-S Luxe adds leather upholstery from upper-spec Civic models, as well as heated front seats, an electric driver’s seat, metallic paint and a gloss black front grille on top of the long equipment list of the Civic VTi-S. The Civic VTi-S is only available in sedan form, with the hatchback unavailable in this special model for now.
“The Civic has such a long and distinguished history in Australia. This current generation is feature packed.” Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins, said.
“Adding to that, the new Civic VTi-S Luxe delivers even more equipment that we know customers value highly, like the leather-appointed seat trim and heated front seats.”
The 2018 Honda Civic VTi-S Luxe is a limited edition model based on the Civic VTi-S, adding leather upholstery, heated front seats, an 8-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a gloss black front grille and metallic paint on top of the regular VTi-S. The Civic VTi-S is well equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, keyless entry and start, LED daytime running lights, a 7.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring and Honda’s LaneWatch left-hand mirror camera. The Luxe is priced from $26,490 plus on-road costs, or $2,000 more than the regular VTi-S.
Honda is celebrating its recent sales success in Australia, thanks largely to refreshed Civic and CR-V models. In 2017, the brand sold 46,783 cars in Australia – up 5,945 units or 14.6 percent. So far in 2018, Civic sales stand at 4,166 units – a massive 67 percent improvement on this time last year, thanks to the addition of the Civic hatchback. 2018 will likely bring more sales success for Honda, with a new Accord likely to arrive as well.
