Honda believes that driving is one of life’s great pleasures, and dreaming up new ways to give you the most rewarding experience behind the wheel is the inspiration for everything we do. Over 25 years ago we challenged ourselves to transform people’s perceptions of what a front-wheel drive compact hatch could do, and with innovation firmly embedded in our DNA, our Honda engineers developed the powerful Civic Type R. A vehicle that brings race-ready performance to everyday life, delivering thrills both on the road and on the track.
The latest generation continues this dream and we have invested more than ever in engineering and design. The result is the most thrilling Civic Type R to date. A new lighter body shell and a dual-axis setup for the front suspension provides a smoother, more responsive drive, while the masterfully-engineered multi-link rear suspension keep you in control, even around the tightest of corners.
When you take a look under the hood, you’ll marvel at the 2.0L VTEC turbo engine that races past every other hatch in its class. It boasts a 0-100 time of 5.7 seconds, and is able to reach a head-turning top speed of 272km per hour. These features make it clear that the Civic Type R belongs at the top of its class, as well as the top of the list for any thrill seeker.
For days when you’re not on the track, our expert engineers have imbedded three adaptive drive-modes to make this Civic Type R the most flexible and sophisticated vehicle yet. Choose between ‘Comfort’, ‘Sport’ or ‘+R’ for a thrilling ride any day of the week.
Unsurprisingly, when put to the test at the German Nürburgring circuit, the all-new Civic Type R broke the record for the fastest ever front wheel drive lap, shaving three full seconds off the previous record. This not only exceeded our expectations, but inspires us to keep pushing ourselves to continue to believe in the power of dreams.
