The Land Down Under is getting ready for the Japanese auto maker to introduce new Civic models specially made for Australia. Honda plans on releasing the A VTi-L (which is their base model) along with Civic Sport, and a five-door hatchback version.
Firstly, the 2012 Civic VTi-L, the model boasts large amounts of standard features, but still drops pricing roughly $3700 under last year's model. Next up is Civic Sport, which will make up 25% of volume coming from the auto maker, and begin at $27,990. There will also be a small amount of Civic Hybrids coming to the country, starting off with an MSRP of $35,990.
Some of the changes being made start with the Civic VTi-L. It'll still boast a range of standard features but get a price cut of $3700 compared to last year's model. The Civic Sport, which makes up nearly 25% of the brand's volume produced will start at $27,990. The country will also get a limited-number of Civic Hybrids that'll start at $35,990. Hatchback pricing has yet to be announced as they won't be released in Australia until July, but will come with a gas or diesel option.
Stephen Collins, Honda Australia's Director confirms that other models "will be sold with either a 1.8 liter petrol or 2.2 liter diesel engine." Honda predicts about 500 models to be sold monthly.
