Long live the king!

Our scintillating front-wheel drive Nürburgring record holder, the #HondaCivicTypeR, has been crowned as the 2023 @TopGearSouthAfrica Speed Week winner.

The Type R being honoured with this prestigious title lays testament to its incredible abilities and the exhilarating experience it offers behind the wheel.

Features and design


From its racing-inspired front air vents, which maximise engine and brake cooling, to its lightweight rear spoiler that boosts down-force at high speeds, there can be no doubting the new Type R’s intent. Its sleek and muscular body sits on dramatic, wide, low-profile tyres. Every part is measured and focused, specifically designed to optimise the vehicle’s dynamics.


Even though the new Type R has been created for outright performance, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the things that make every journey a little more comfortable. After all, we believe you can only fully enjoy the driving experience when you are feeling calm and composed. That’s why we have included features like dual-zone air conditioning – little details that will make a big difference every day.


Settle into the sculpted, figure-hugging racing seats and take in the harmonious, uncluttered interior. Everything has been designed to ensure you are totally immersed in the driving experience; controls are thoughtfully arranged, intuitively positioned and beautifully made and surrounded by high levels of finish and exceptional attention to detail, from its distinctive honeycomb dashboard design and tactile gear knob to its sports pedals.


Your safety and the safety of your passengers is always our priority, which is why the Type R is fitted with a host of passive and active safety features, including our latest Honda SENSING® system: a suite of advanced technologies that react to situations with lightning speed and offer intelligent support when required. When you also consider that the Type R comes with a Rear-view Camera, Collision Mitigation Braking and a Lane Keeping Assist System, it’s good to know that all these features are there for your safety and convenience.


The ability to access data clearly and quickly is vital. That’s why the new Type R’s 10.2” digital multi-information display tells you precisely what you need to know, when you need to know it. A clever Honda LogR performance datalogger further enhances your driving experience by monitoring and recording on-track performance and providing in-depth analysis on the centrally mounted, 9” Honda HMI infotainment screen.


A high-performance pedigree. The new Type R is the fastest yet, powered by a potent 2 litre, VTEC turbo-charged engine that generates 235 kW and peak torque of 420Nm. Every component is refined and perfected to achieve maximum agility and performance.
