Black Editions for Honda Civic and CR-V

Published 08 January 2016

Honda has become the latest manufacturer to bring out Black Editions of its most popular cars, giving the treatment to the Civic hatchback and CR-V crossover.

Released in February, the special editions cost £14,995 for the Civic and from £29,995 for the CR-V. The changes they offer over their standard counterparts are exclusively cosmetic.

The Civic is based on the 1.4-litre i-VTEC S model and gets 16-inch alloy wheels, body coloured wheel arches and a sportier body kit over and above standard kit. Surprisingly, the £14,995 Black Edition costs £1475 less than the car on which it’s based. Also surprising, albeit much less so, is the news that the Civic Black Edition comes in four different colours. 

The new CR-V Black Edition  gets 19-inch black alloys, a gloss black grille and skid plates, a spoiler, leather interior and premium carpet mats.

Unlike the single-model Civic, the CR-V Black Edition is available with front-wheel or four-wheel drive, manual or automatic transmissions and 2.0-litre petrol or 1.6-litre diesel engines. The most you’ll pay for one is £33,730, options and accessories aside.

Black is this season's in colour for car special editions it seems, with Honda joining Audi, Ford, Volkswagen and Porsche in releasing black editions of its cars in the recent past, those being the A5, Fiesta, Up and Boxster.
