Created using Honda’s unique racing DNA, and designed to epitomise the thrill of the modern sports car, the Honda Civic Type R is a model built for sheer performance. Honda has pushed the boundaries in engineering and innovation to create an unforgettable driving experience for those craving an adrenaline rush.
The bold, powerful exterior of the Civic Type R promotes the car both aesthetically and practically.The distinctive wing spoiler, aluminium bonnet and front bumper/vents help to increase the aerodynamic performance of the car through optimising airflow and generating down-force, whilst ensuring stability throughout. The rigid body frame and suspension allow for extra-sharp handling and increased power transfer to the road. The suspension system brings further benefit by stabilising braking and maximising driver control. The LED lights add elegance and allow it to shine brightly at night, whilst the triple exhaust boosts high-rev acceleration and performance.
The Civic Type R has a state-of-the-art interior design, maximising the sporting features of the car – low red and black cushioned racing seats with increased headroom, race car visibility and race shift gear stick - without compromising on comfort or space. This is evident with the class-leading 420 litres of boot space. The carbon fibre digital dashboard comprises a new 7” Honda CONNECT touchscreen which connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth or USB. This allows access to music, navigation, calls and messages when the time is right. The bespoke Type R steering wheel marries with the Integrated Meter Display - a sports display which features an LED gearshift indicator, boost pressure gauge, G-meter and lap time recorder.
The Civic Type R boasts a 2 litre, four-cylinder VTEC TURBO engine, capable of an output of 320PS and 400Nm of torque. It can go from 0-62mph in 5.8 seconds, and reach a top speed of 169mph. The selection of driving modes – comfort, sport and +R – give you complete control over your drive, with the quick shift feature making each gear change feel smooth and efficient. It returns 36.7mpg on the combined cycle, and emits 176g/km of CO2.
The Honda Civic Type R is available in a range of colours, from Championship White, to Sonic Grey Pearl, to Rallye Red.
