Apart from the Crystal Black Pearlaescent paint job shown, the Orange Edition will also be available in three different body colors; Lunar Silver Metallic, Sonic Gray and White Orchid Pearlescent.

If the Orange Edition is not to your liking, Honda Australia also has the Black Pack edition which they first introduced in the Civic Sedan last year. Like the new appearance pack, the Black Pack comes with blacked-out front and rear under spoliers, side mirror caps, side skirts and 17-inch alloy wheels.

“The ‘Black Pack’ edition proved to be extremely popular with dealers and customers when we launched the all-new Honda Civic sedan, so we’ve extended the scope for customers to individualise the all-new Civic hatch with the introduction of the Orange Edition,” said Stephen Collins, Honda Australia director.
