Motorists who now choose to buy a new Honda Civic on Honda finance are to benefit from a cost-saving package offered by the manufacturer.
From April 1st, those who buy either a Civic or CR-V with Honda finance will get their monthly payments paid by the manufacturer for a year if they are made redundant for more than three months.
Alongside the complimentary payment protection, motorists could also benefit from other financial deals including reduced on-the-road prices on selected models.
Thus, those opting to buy a 2008 Honda Civic 1.8 SE could make a saving of £1,520.
Tom Gardner, head of marketing at Honda (UK), said: "We know that people still want to buy new cars but everyone’s a bit nervous at the moment about making such a significant purchase.
"Our package of cost savings, financial offers and the security of payment protection is one of the strongest we’ve ever offered."
Motorists opting to buy a five-door Civic SE can benefit from a boot offering 415 litres of space, while the doors open to almost fully 90 degrees for easier access.
