To celebrate the legendary video game character, “Sonic the Hedgehog,” SEGA tapped Honda and its number one selling car in America, the Civic, to create a one-of-a-kind Sonic Civic, as the beloved game commemorates its 25th year. The custom Sonic Civic, based on a turbocharged 2016 Civic Touring Sedan, made its debut during Comic-Con at SEGA’s sold-out Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary event at the House of Blues in San Diego.
“What better way to showcase the incredibly sporty performance capability of the 10th generation Civic than by pairing it with the gaming industry’s ultimate athlete, Sonic the Hedgehog,” said James Jenkins, Public Relations Manager for the Honda Division. “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 as well as those who continue playing today – rejoice in his all-new ride as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
The Sonic Civic embodies the spirit of the “Sonic the Hedgehog” classic video game, whose main character Sonic, and Sonic’s world, is featured on and throughout the modified vehicle. Fox Marketing Cars, based in York, Pennsylvania, led the design and customization.
