Honda to increase prices across the range
Prices for every Honda are set to rise between now and early January
Philip Crossman, managing director of Honda UK, said: “In the wider context, we must ensure industry price competitiveness. To achieve this, we’ve undertaken a comprehensive review of our product pricing over the last three years to understand where Honda sits in comparison to our main competitors and have determined that we need to raise prices accordingly.”
This is the first price increase Honda has implemented since January 2014, and the company is keen to point out that its prices have remained static since then, while rivals’ have been increasing.
The sharpest increase is for the recently launched HR-V crossover, which will become 4.4% more expensive on average on 1 December. The range will now start at £18,495 for the 1.5 i-VTEC S model.
Prices for the SE and EX versions of the Jazz will rise by an average of 2.3% on 4January, although the entry-level S version will remain at £13,495.
The same date will also see price increases for the Honda Civic and CR-V. Civic prices will go up 2.3%, so the entry-level model will start at £16,470, while the CR-V will cost around 1.9% more than before, with the entry-level model starting at £22,770.
