There’s a huge comic book convention that takes place around this time of year. But you don’t have to be a comic book fan to really love the Sonic Civic, a customized 2016 Honda Civic that the automaker displayed at the event — it’s pretty cool!

The automaker displayed a custom “Sonic Civic” at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, and it boasts a unique look that celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the game “Sonic the Hedgehog™” from developer SEGA®. Based on the 2016 Honda Civic Touring Sedan, which you can learn more about here at our Wallingford, CT area Honda dealership, it boasts an eye-catching exterior design and paint job that blends Sonic Black, Candy Sonic Blue, and Sonic Yellow colors and special graphics together for a one-of-a-kind appearance. It features custom wheels and tires inspired by the character’s shoes. And its interior boasts Katzkin Blue Leather trimmed seats with embroidered 25th Anniversary logos.

But that’s not all! As befitting a car inspired by a video game, the custom Sonic Civic boasts a high-powered Rockford Fosgate multimedia system complete with dual 500-watt subwoofers and amplifiers, and a 32-inch TV that flips up or down to allow attendees to play classic video games.

According to James Jenkins, Public Relations Manager at Honda, “What better way to showcase the incredibly sporty performance capability of the 10th generation Civic than by pairing it with gaming industry’s ultimate athlete — Sonic the Hedgehog… As the fan favorite game and character celebrates his 25th anniversary on the scene, we hope that all Sonic fans — those who remember playing years ago and those who continue playing today — rejoice in his all-new ride, as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

You don’t have to be a fan of comic books — or video game characters — to be impressed by the custom Sonic Civic displayed at this year’s Comic-Con. And we also think you’ll be very impressed by the 2016 Honda Civic available in our inventory here at Executive Honda. Stop by to check it out today!
