Honda, like others, is urging its car-owner customers to upgrade their current model to a new Honda in January.
It claims that it is not just because of the leading reliability, fuel economy, driving pleasure, and customer satisfaction for which Honda cars have long been renowned, but also because of an entirely new range of updated and redesigned models featuring attractive finance offers and highly-equipped model upgrade options.
The company says that you can now drive away in a new Honda from as little as €189 per month, or upgrade to a higher specification model with increased features for less than you might think.
According to Honda 161 upgrade programme is being launched at dealers across Ireland now, with highly-equipped models, low CO2 engines, and great deals.
The newest addition to the range is the highly-anticipated HR-V, a new compact SUV which sees the return of a familiar nameplate to Irish roads. It has a good standard specification including alloy wheels, climate control, Bluetooth, cruise control, automatic lights, and city-brake active system.
The all-new Honda Jazz is another new arrival in showrooms for 161. Designed to be small on the outside, yet spacious inside, the Jazz sets new standards for small car design. The all-new Jazz comes with a level of equipment which Honda says is unique in the supermini sector, including city-brake active system, air conditioning, auto lights and wipers, Bluetooth, and cruise control as standard.
The new Honda Civic range was recently awarded a Guinness World Record for fuel efficiency. It has been redesigned, with the latest Civic model features a more dynamic new look, a sportier drive with standard agile handling assist, and high specification across the range.
All Civic models now come equipped with city-brake active system, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, and climate control. Honda says that buyers can also upgrade to the higher spec Civic sport for a keen finance rate.
The class-leading CR-V SUV has also been recently redesigned and Honda says that it offers award-winning economy in the sector, great reliability, and customer satisfaction. Honda reminds us that it is the world’s best-selling SUV, and recently added a new 1.6 i-DTEC 160 engine with all-wheel drive, and the option of an advanced new 9-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include city-brake active system, Bluetooth, cruise control, alloy wheels, and dual-zone climate control.
Speaking at the launch of the Honda 161 range, Adrian Cole, managing director of Universal Honda Ltd, commented: "2016 will be a very important year for us, after a very busy and exciting 2015, during which we launched and updated every model in our range. From superminis to hot-hatches to new SUVs, we now have a dynamic and exciting new range of vehicles equipped with the latest in safety and connectivity technologies.
"The arrival of the exciting new HR-V, Jazz, and Civic Type R, in addition to the recently updated Civic, Civic Tourer, and CR-V, has created our youngest range ever. With increased equipment, new active safety technologies, and tablet-like in-car connectivity, the Honda range for 161 is our best ever, and our dealer network across Ireland look forward to welcoming customers into our showrooms.”
