Honda Civic Type R

Experience the other side of Honda

The bloodline continues with our latest Honda Civic Type R. It’s the most powerful, fastest-accelerating, front-wheel drive hatchback around and holds lap records at five major European circuits – that’s why we call it a race car for the road.

Born to perform

Underneath the sculpted bonnet lies a two litre, four cylinder VTEC TURBO engine which develops a maximum power output of 320PS and 400Nm of torque. It’s no surprise to discover this gives the Type R the ability to sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds and achieve 272km/h top speed (where conditions allow).

All this power is fed through a smooth and precise sixspeed manual gearbox which is optimised by a rev match control system to ensure slick, intuitive gear changes. The final drive is transmitted through an exceptionally responsive helical limited-slip differential to further enhance the performance character.

The ultimate performance test is of course on the track. Not any track, but the iconic Nürburgring, where we pushed the new Type R to the limit. It responded with distinction, slicing almost 7 seconds from its predecessor’s time.


Features Interior
  • Raw yet defined

    The Type R cockpit is designed to promote a driving experience that engages the senses. After all, raw power shouldn’t mean a raw deal when it comes to refinement. From unique black sports seats, trimmed in suede-effect fabric with red double stitching and side supports, to the aluminium gear lever knob, the Type R has all the details covered. There is even a plaque affixed to the transmission tunnel showing your car’s individual serial number

  • Fully Engaged

    The new Civic Type R packs a lot into the interior, especially with the Honda Connect touch-screen infotainment system. An optional GT Pack adds even more features such as front and rear parking sensors, dusk sensing headlamps, rain sensing automatic wipers and electric folding door mirrors.

    There’s also an integrated satellite navigation, so while you may get lost in the moment through sheer driving pleasure, you won’t lose your way home. And if the throaty roar of the engine didn’t sound attractive enough, there’s a premium eight speaker, 320 watt stereo system upgrade. Now you can choose the perfect soundtrack for your favourite drive.

Features Exterior
  • Power and control

    The Type R hands you all the power, but it also gives you full control. It has animal performance on the track, but it’s very easy to tame out on the road. Innovations in the suspension systems, unique to the Type R, give razor-sharp handling and help maximise power transfer to the road. The power really is in your hands, with Dual Pinion Electric Power Steering delivering rapid steering response and superb feel. If the idea of control really pushes your button, well now there’s one more. Press the ‘+R’ button and discover a more intense driving experience that you can really feel. If you’re a genuine sports driving enthusiast it’s good to know that instant thrills are right at your fingertips.

  • Designed with performance in mind

    The Type R is designed to look good from all angles. But those angles have been meticulously designed, honed and engineered so that it can cut through the air at speed. The unique vents, grilles and skirts work together with the rear tailgate spoiler and diffuser to minimise drag, optimise airflow and boost downforce, providing improved handling and control at speed.
