Honda Civic Type R

From £30,000

Honda Civic Type R

A racing spirit tamed for the road, the new Civic Type R is Honda’s thoroughbred model. Five years in the making, it is a pure sports machine designed to break performance boundaries. It does just that too – racing from 0-60mph in an adrenaline-charged 5.7 seconds, making it the fastest accelerating front-wheel drive hatchback on the market. 

Exterior design

The uniquely styled Civic Type R turns heads. Distinctly crafted from Honda racing DNA, each element has been designed for aggressive aerodynamics and raw performance. Every curve, line and angle, from the low sports mesh grille to the rear tailgate spoiler and diffuser, works to minimise drag, optimise airflow and boost downforce. Extreme splitters, combined with the sleek rear spoiler design, manage airflow to ensure greater grip to tarmac, while quad exhausts channel the guttural engine roar to the rear of the car. Impressive 19-inch Piano Black alloys encased in low profile racing tyres and Brembo calipers complete the look.

Interior design

Every inch the sports car cockpit, the Type R interior is crafted for the ultimate driving experience. Settle into sports bucket, red suede Alcantara seats with double stitching and side supports. Sitting low, you will find clear dials directly in your eye line, keeping you in control at all times. A black roof lining, leather-wrapped steering wheel and an alloy gear stick and pedals lend a premium, refined feel to complement the exterior. Adding to the Type R exclusivity is the plaque affixed to the transmission tunnel detailing you car’s unique serial number. Once you hit the road, turn up the music with a 320-watt, eight-speaker stereo system.


The Civic Type R is powered by the all-new direct-injected 2.0-litre i-VTEC TURBO engine. Race to a top speed of 167mph – a speed that helped it set a class-leading record lap time of seven minutes 50 seconds at the notorious Nürburgring. Delivering a mind-blowing 305bhp, a peak power of 6,500rpm and 400Nm maximum torque, you will really feel at the helm of a racecar. The turbocharged engine combines swift acceleration with scorching performance, while innovations in suspension offer razor sharp handling and maximise power transfer to the road. Press the +R button for adjusted engine torque-mapping, steering and suspension dampers for even greater enhanced performance.

Safety and technology

The entry-level Type R comes with Honda’s latest Connect infotainment system with Bluetooth® connectivity, keyless entry, cruise control, a rear parking camera and stop/start technology as standard. Upgrade to the range-topping GT trim for an integrated satellite navigation system and a host of improved safety features. On top of the standard specification, this grade offers a forward collision warning and rear cross traffic alert to warn of passing cars when backing out of a space, traffic sign recognition and blind spot and lane departure warning. The City-Brake Active System – a laser radar system that scans ahead and applies the brakes if a collision is detected, is offered as standard on all trims, along with Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags all round.
