New Honda Civic Type-R Overview
A true show stopper and track killer all-in-one, the Honda Civic Type R is built to thrill with its racing DNA and muscular, mighty presence. The 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine delivers outstanding performance, thrusting the Type R from 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds flat. It’ll accelerate all the way to 167mph, and you can be sure that every drive will be an awesome event. At the push of a button, the Type R enters ‘+R’ mode. This adjusts the torque-mapping, steering and suspension dampers for track-ready performance. On the road, that translates to an unbeatable driving experience. Are you ready for it?
The Honda Civic Type R is drop-dead gorgeous. The extreme front and rear splitters, quad-tip exhaust, high-angle roof spoiler and chunky body kit combine with a race-inspired interior to create a powerful hot hatch in both appearance and practice.
The Honda Civic Type R has been built with one thing in mind: Performance. The 2.0 i-VTEC engine delivers punch throughout the rev range, and the exhaust snarls and rasps with a serious rumble. You’ll love every minute behind the wheel.
Because it’s based on the Civic hatch, the Civic Type R offers outstanding everyday practicality. The boot is enormous, with a 478-litre load volume, comfort is excellent on long journeys, and there’s ISOFIX child seat mounting points on the rear bench.
Living with it
The Civic Type R’s ‘+R’ mode transforms the car into a track-ready beast. Turn it off, and the Type R transforms into a relaxed cruiser. The standard equipment list is huge, and the Civic Type R returns up to 38.7mpg combined.
