Special edition Honda Civic on sale

  • Limited model gets £3,700 worth of extras
  • Minor race-inspired additions for Honda hatch
  • Interior extras include top spec sat nav

Honda is set to sell a special edition Civic that comes with race-inspired design additions and high-spec interior kit.

The limited run model - badged the Civic Ti - is based on the 1.4-litre and 1.8-litre i-VTEC SE variants and adds around £3,700 worth of extra equipment.

Inspired by the Honda racing team British touring car, the five-door Civic comes with 17-ich 'Pro Race' wheels from the company's touring car partners, Team Dynamics.

As well as the matt black wheels it also gets a GP body kit including front and rear spoilers, side skirt inserts and rear body skirts. Finally the car is finished in an exclusive white paint.

Inside it gets an upgraded multimedia system with touch screen sat nav. The system also comes with inputs for an iPod and USB devices, as well as playing CDs and DVDs.

With the Civic Type-R no longer on sale, the limited edition model is aimed towards filling that sporty gap in Honda's lineup - even if it is just in the looks department. You'll have to be quick though as just 500 are available.

The models go on sale in March with prices starting at £15,995 for the 1.4 i-VTEC version and £16,995 for the 1.8-litre option.
