Honda Civic customers can save up to £2,000 off their favourite model this summer, thanks to a range of scorching offers from Honda.
With its sporty looks, the 1.4-litre i-VTEC Honda Civic Type S appeals to younger customers that want the Type R look, with more affordable running costs. Customers can save £1,200 this summer, with the model now priced at £13,550 on-the-road.
Its five-door counterpart is equally economical thanks to the new 1.4-litre i-VTEC petrol engine introduced to the range for 2009 and should appeal to the increasing number of downsizers. Customers can benefit from £1,000 off the list price of the 5-door SE manual at £13,950 OTR.
Higher-powered versions of the British-built family hatchback are also available with savings. The new Honda Civic 1.8-litre i-VTEC SE 5-door manual now costs £14,985 (saving £1,000) and for rev-hungry 'Red H' fans, the Honda Civic Type R GT is available at £17,980 OTR, which is a huge £2,000 off the normal price.
All the above discounted Honda Civics are available with Honda finance; either a 0% APR hire purchase, or a PCP with low 10% deposit and low APR of 5.9%. Honda finance has proved especially popular this year, with 46 per cent of Honda car customers opting to take advantage of the competitive finance packages.
"Honda is back building cars in Britain thanks to the commitment of the factory's workforce," says Tom Gardner, Head of Marketing for Honda (UK) Car division. "And to support the re-opening of HUM, we're offering a range of packages on new Civics. Because of its spaciousness, versatility and fresh styling, Civic is proving increasingly popular for downsizers and the great money-saving packages should appeal to these customers in particular."
Honda (UK) has a range of strong Contract Hire rentals this summer too. The brand new Honda Insight hybrid car is available from £249 (SE model) and offers excellent running costs for retail and corporate customers alike, including frugal fuel economy, reduced road tax, the lowest BIK tax, reduced National Insurance contributions and 100% write down allowance.
The high specification Honda Accord saloon EX with Honda's latest 2.2-litre i-DTEC diesel engine costs £317 per month, while the Tourer version is available from £327 per month. A top-of-the-range Honda Accord saloon 2.2-litre i-DTEC with Honda's Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) is available for £357 per month and is therefore equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
Honda's family-friendly Honda FR-V which seats six passengers in 3+3 formation is also available on contract hire from £293 per month (FR-V 2.2 i-DTEC EX model). Honda continues to offer £2,000 off new models in line with the Government's Scrappage Scheme, but this saving cannot be claimed in conjunction with the above offers.Published 19 June 2009
