Special edition model coincides with Type R arrival

Honda dealerships are gearing up to offer hot hatch buyers the keenly anticipated new Honda Civic Type R from next month (details here).

But if the Type R is just a bit too much for you, either in drive characteristics or dollars, you can still get a hotted-up Honda Civic.

Honda Australia today confirmed the arrival of a new ‘Red Edition’ of the Civic Hatch.

Available across the four hatch grades, only 228 cars will be available in total (228 being the kilowatt output of the Type R).

The Red Edition Civic carries a $2,498 price premium and adds:

  • 17” black alloys (x4)
  • Front Under Spoiler — Red
  • Rear Under Spoiler — Red
  • Side skirt set — Red
  • Red Edition floor mats

While the cars will be available four colours - White Orchid Pearlescent, Lunar Silver Metallic, Sonic Grey Pearlescent, and Crystal Black Pearlescent (as seen in the photos).

Honda boss, Stephen Collins, says the 228 Red Edition cars are expected to sell quickly.

“Customers love the boldness of the Honda Civic sedan and hatch and the eye-catching ‘Red Edition’ is an attention-grabbing styling statement for Civic customers looking to add some individuality to their cars.”
