MELBOURNE, July 1, 2019 – Honda Australia has continued its 50th anniversary celebrations with the release of not just one, but five limited edition models to commemorate the significant milestone in the company’s local history.

The 50 Years Edition package will be available across the five key models in the Honda vehicle line-up – Jazz, Civic hatch, Civic sedan, HR-V and CR-V – with each model offering a unique suite of features at an attractive drive away price point, that represents outstanding value-for-money for new car buyers.

“The 50 Years Edition range celebrates an important milestone for the Honda brand in Australia,” said Honda Australia General Manager – Product, Customer & Communications, Mr. Robert Thorp.

“While the one-off gold collection of our hero performance products wasn’t available for customers to purchase, the 50 Years Edition range is firmly focused on the most popular models in Honda’s vehicle line-up, ensuring all new car buyers have a chance to be part of the celebrations.

“We wanted to make these special limited edition models available to as many customers as possible, so whether it’s the multi-talented Jazz, stylish Civic, versatile HR-V or family-friendly CR-V, there really is something for everybody in the 50 Years Edition range.”

The total value equation is different for each 50 Years Edition model, but all are equipped with a host of style and convenience features, typically only available on upper-level grades.

The result is a unique 50 Years Edition specification level on each vehicle that offers a desirable, customer-focused equipment list at a compelling drive away price point.
