A NEW batch of Honda Civic Type R models allocated to the Philippines has arrived in the country, with deliveries to customers set to begin in October.
Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) said it secured for the domestic market another 100 examples of the high-performance version of the Civic, adding to the 100 cars allotted to the company in 2017. The first batch of Type Rs — the first time the variant was officially released in the Philippines — were all booked for purchase within 48 hours following the announcement of its availability, HCPI said.
The company added the new cars will be displayed in all 38 Honda Cars dealerships beginning Sept. 1. The Civic Type R costs P2.980 million.
New to this year’s batch of cars is a Polished Metal paint, which has been added to the Type R’s signature Championship White and Rallye Red colors.
Along with the Civic Type R, HCPI announced it had also introduced limited-edition variants of the Honda City, BR-V and Odyssey models. The company said the special renditions of its subcompact, subcompact SUV and MPV products are meant to “satisfy the needs and to cater to the dynamic lifestyles of the Filipino customer.”
