In February 2019 Honda upgraded their 10th generation Civic range with improved safety and driver assist technologies. Rob Fraser has been driving the RS Sedan.
With beautiful design and exclusive Phoenix Orange colour, rear spoiler and 18 inch alloys the RS Sedan stands apart from the crowd.
It misses out on inbuilt sat nav, but otherwise is packed with features such as Apple Car Play and Android Auto, Auto high beam, a full suite of safety and driver assist technology as well as little comforts like heated front seats and one touch windows.
Two features worth mentioning are the clever USB port that feeds the cord from below the centre console and the excellent camera system that shows the left side blind spot on the centre screen.
With a 1.5L turbo 4 cylinder engine and CVT, the performance is sporty but combined with compliant ride and handling the driving experience is actually a lot of fun. .
From a shade under $32,000 plus the usual costs the Honda Civic RS Sedan also comes with a five year unlimited kilometre warranty.
