Honda Australia has upped pricing on its Civic sedan, increasing the cost of the small four door by as much as $200 for the 2020 model year.
The point of entry to the four-door Civic line-up, the VTi, now costs $22,590 (+$200) before on-road costs, while the VTi-S and VTi-L are also $200 pricier at $24,790 and $28,190 respectively.
The $31,990 RS sedan however, remains static in price, while the top-spec VTi-LX is now $33,890 (+$200).
Powering the VTi and VTi-S is a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, outputting 104kW/174Nm to the front wheel via a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Stepping up to the VTi-L, RS or VTi-LX however, will net buyers a 127kW/220Nm 1.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which also drives the front axle through a CVT.
Standard equipment includes 16-inch steel wheels, electronically adjustable door mirrors, eight-speaker sound system, 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and electronic parking brake.
Safety wise, all Civic sedans are fitted with a reversing camera, hill-start assist and traction control.
Stepping up to the VTi-S adds keyless entry, push-button start, 16-inch alloy wheels, chequered pattern interior, leather-wrapped steering wheel and blacked out front grille, as well as front and rear parking sensors, and Honda’s LaneWatch camera system.
From the VTi-L grade, buyers get Honda’s Sensing suite of advanced driver-assist technologies, including adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane-keep assist, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels, power-folding mirrors and automatic headlights.
RS variants differentiate themselves with blacked-out 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, automatic wipers, shark fin antenna, leather-wrapped shift knob, leather trim, tailgate spoiler, heated front seats, alloy pedals, red-contrast interior stitching, dual-zone climate control, steering wheel paddle shifters, digital radio and a 10-speaker sound system.
Finally, the top-spec VTi-LX adds an electric sunroof, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, auto up/down windows and satellite navigation.
For reference, the hatchback line-up starts at $22,790 and tops out with the hardcore Civic Type R for $51,990.
