Honda has given the sedan version of the Civic a minor face-lift and added a new entry-level model – the Vi.

The new starting point in the range comes with prices starting at $18,490, a full $1000 below the previous base model VTi. The VTi still exists, along with the VTi-S, VTi-L and Sport.

All models in the range get a new grille and new optional paint colours - Modern Steel and Golden Brown.

The big difference between the Vi and the VTi is that the bargain-basement model is manual only and all models except the Vi in the Civic sedan range get Honda’s Display Audio system, reversing camera, automatic transmission and alloy wheels as standard.

Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins says the changes are a positive for the model.

“We’ve added a number of new features to the Civic sedan and a renamed variant line-up, offering customers more choice across the Civic range.”

All models above the entry-level Vi get Honda’s Display Audio System.

The refreshed Honda Civic sedan is now arriving in Honda dealerships nationally.
