The Honda Civic Luxe has been launched in Australia. The limited-edition Honda Civic sedan has a sportier styling and additional comfort and convenience.
The Honda Civic Luxe is based on the Honda Civic VTi-S. On the outside, its only differentiator is the black sports grille. Most of the value additions are on the inside. In addition to the VTi-S grade’s standard features like 16-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, LaneWatch and smart entry and start system, the Luxe edition model has leather-appointed seats, a heating function for the front seats and 8-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat.
The Honda Civic Luxe is powered by the 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol engine. This naturally aspirated four-cylinder mill develops 104 kW (141 PS) at 6,500 rpm and 174 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels. As the limited-edition model is based on the VTi-S grade, paddle shifters are not included.
The Honda Civic Luxe retails at AU$26,490 (INR 13,39,251.43), which is AU$2,000 (INR 10,11,13.74) more than the Honda Civic VTi-S’ price. It is available in four colours: White Orchid Pearlescent, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and Cosmic Blue Metallic. Honda has only 180 units of the special edition model to offer.
