Honda to offer 'thrills' at new motor show
Honda will be looking to wow existing fans and win over new ones at an inaugural industry event in London this week.
Yesterday (April 17th) marked the opening of the first ever motor show at the recently-opened Westfield Stratford City shopping centre in East London and the Japanese carmaker is looking to bring "thrills, freebies and competitions" to the party.
This event is due to run until April 22nd and will offer shoppers and motorists a chance to get a closer look at Honda's British-built models.
The Jazz supermini, CR-V sports utility vehicle and the all-new Honda Civic hatchback will all be in attendance at the motor show as will a variety of the manufacturer's bikes.
Visitors to the event will also be given the "ultimate Honda racing experience" for free as the firm has brought along not one but two simulators.
Motorists can get a taste of what it is like to be a racing driver in either the Formula One or S2000 simulators.
"To celebrate the launch of the new Civic, Honda will be treating six lucky winners to a £300 gift card which can be used at any of the five Westfield shopping centres across the UK, Honda explained.
"As a little extra treat, Honda is giving a free Costa Coffee voucher to all Honda bike and car owners who show their key to staff on the stand."
Honda is just one of the leading car firms attending the motor show and a host of other models will be displayed, ranging from eco-friendly vehicles to the very best from the world of supercars.
The news comes shortly after the hugely-popular Honda Civic was named as the best value car on UK roads.
At the latest edition of the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards the Civic topped the medium hatchback category and was also named overall winner.
