Honda’s new Civic Type R is off to a great start! The fastest and most powerful model to date is also only the second in Honda history to be turbocharged. As one of the most recognised performance cars in the world, the Type R is certainly in the running to be king of the hot-hatches. It’s begun its quest for the title in good form by setting the fastest front-wheel-drive lap time at Nürburgring, the traditional test track for many manufacturers.
Differentiating it from other Civic models, the spoilers, vents and ducts of the new Type R push the car harder into the road surface for better grip and agility. They also improve aerodynamics and cooling.
Wheels are now sporty 20” Piano Black, wrapped in Continental ContiSportContact 6 tyres. At the rear, there are three central exhaust pipes nestled tidily in the diffuser, blending form with function.
The styling is undeniable with the Type R badge proudly displayed. Its sleek yet aggressive bodyline and overhanging wheel arches produce considered aerodynamics capable of minimising drag and lift. Privacy glass and a black grille provides just the right amount of cool.
Now lighter and lower, the new Honda Civic Type R allows the driver to feel completely in control from his snug seating position. A choice of three driving modes - comfort, sport and +R - will let you feel in command of both this performance car and the road!
Inside the new Honda Civic Type R, there’s a raft of stylistic upgrades which make it stand out from the rest of the Civic range. Red styling cues surround the dashboard trim, sporty steering wheel and deep-sided bucket seats, confirming the Civic Type R as one incredibly desirable performance car.
All major controls are located close to the driver and located perfectly for ease of use. Buttons and knobs have been sparingly used - allowing Honda to utilise the steering wheel and 7” CONNECT touchscreen ensuring the driver’s focus is on the road at all times.
The new dashboard in the Civic Type R is evidence of a new focus on simplifying the cabin for the driver - the instrument display is now one piece and provides all information in one place.
The red, stitched leather gearknob surround matches the rest of the interior while the titanium gearknob, exclusive to Honda Type R cars, sits proudly on the transmission tunnel, marking the Honda Civic Type R as a true driver’s car.
The updated turbocharged 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine produces 316hp while the torque figure remains at 295lb/ft - enough to launch from 0-62mph in just 5.8sec. This solidifies the Civic Type R’s performance car credentials as one of the fastest front-wheel drive cars on the market.
The 170mph top speed eclipses its rivals. Large Brembo brakes (350mm at the front and 305mm at the rear) provide awesome stopping power and the 245-section tyres and increased track width ensure you’ll never be left wanting for grip. A sizeable rear wing and roof mounted vortex generators aid airflow over the car for improved aerodynamics.
The Ferrari F40-aping triple exhaust is not solely an aesthetic choice. The centre pipe enhances the sound of the four-cylinder turbo engine, while reducing drone at cruising speeds and improving usability. One of the most significant changes to the new Honda Civic Type R is the inclusion of independent rear suspension to provide better handling, ride quality and braking.
The Honda Civic Type R is packed with a bundle of technology - Honda’s CONNECT infotainment system features a 7” touchscreen, Bluetooth® connectivity, DAB radio, an 8-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay, USB slots & internet capability. Choose the higher-spec GT model and you’ll also benefit from Garmin Satellite Navigation, dual-zone climate control Blind Spot Information & Cross Traffic monitor, front and rear parking sensors and wireless charging.
Getting into and starting the Honda Civic Type R is quick and easy thanks to Smart Entry & Start. In terms of safety, the Type R is endowed with as much equipment as possible. The usual airbags (driver, passenger, side and side curtain), ABS, EBD and Lane Keep Assist are joined by a whole host of useful features.
Some of the other standout safety features include: Deflation Warning System, various collision prevention systems, an Intelligent Speed Limiter, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control and a Traffic Sign Recognition System.
