To celebrate the legendary video game character Sonic the Hedgehog, SEGA tapped Honda to create a one-of-a-kind Civic, as the beloved game commemorates its 25th year. The custom Sonic Civic, based on a turbocharged 2016 Civic Touring Sedan, made its debut on July 22 during Comic-Con at SEGA’s sold-out Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary event at the House of Blues in San Diego.

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. The Sonic Civic customization includes:

  • Custom wheels and tires representing Sonic’s infamous red shoes and gold rings featured in the game
  • Custom exterior including a one-of-a-kind vinyl Sonic the Hedgehog design and bespoke paint scheme
  • A Sonic Black Grill, BASF R-M Candy Sonic Blue painted exterior with custom Sonic Yellow throughout, including a Sonic Yellow Honda logo
  • Custom interior features Sonic the Hedgehog front and rear seats with Katzkin Leather and custom Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary embroidered logos
