 Honda Civic Type R

The Honda Civic Type R was always set to turn heads and break boundaries and it truly is the real deal. For the second time in as many years, the hot hatch is the fastest front-wheel-drive car around the Nurburgring race track, completing the track in 7:43.8s. It is set to be built at the company's Swindon based manufacturing plant and, whilst incorporating some key features from the Civic range, this model has gone above and beyond to improve all aspects. 


Exterior Design

The Honda Civic Type R has been designed in such a way as to have an unrivalled presence and an unforgettable impression. This new model picks up on and enhances its predecessor's styling. A new black-framed diamond grille, red pinstripe and some really dynamic and expressive headlights give the hot hatch a really powerful and impressive character. A large and distinctly kinked rear wing, aerodynamic fins and creases, large alloy wheels, red trim and three exhaust pipes make the Type R an unmissable and performance heavy edition to the Civic family.  

The 2017 Civic Type-R's full dimensions haven't been released yet. As soon as they are announced we will add.





Interior Design

The interior of the Type R takes the modern design of the standard Civic and adds some really sporty features. Race-style seats offer more support for fast cornering and are also 20 mm closer to the road, giving you a much more sporty driving position whilst also maintaining the high standards of comfort, even on longer trips and metal pedals let you feel the really racing spirit. The dashboard is uncomplicated, with carbon fibre elements accenting the elegant lines which, combined with the red leather trim gives the Type R a really premium finish, with the signature red accents appearing throughout including a red-painted H pattern on the bare-metal gear knob. The interior has been specifically designed to give you the best and most efficient environment for sporty, responsive and fun driving.  

Boot Dimensions

This sporty number has managed to retain practicality too, with 60:40 split rear folding seats allowing:

  • 498 litres seats up
  • 1,427 litres seats down
  • Wide and low load space



Safety & Technology

  • The Civic Type R is fitted with some really impressive technology, a lot of which is designed to enhance the driving experience. For example, a press of the +R button leads to a stiffer suspension kicking in which in turn leads to a more responsive accelerator
  • The Comfort Setting is also available which adapts the suspension to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride
  • A front-wheel-drive also features a limited-slip differential which helps put the power of the vehicle on the road and prevents wheel spin even on hard acceleration of slow corners
  • An eye-catching panel situated behind the steering wheel prompts you to change gear when needed, the gear shift itself is short and snappy giving you the essence of the race-ratio 
  • The impressive and up-to-date infotainment system of the standard Civic has been carried over into the Type-R, featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Keyless entry, climate and cruise control, parking camera and LED headlights are just some of the editions that come as standard
