After a five-year wait, 2015 saw the arrival of the world's most keenly anticipated hot hatch, the Honda Civic Type R. Billed as a 'race car for the road'; the all-new Civic Type R will set new standards in the high-performance front-wheel drive hatchback segment.
The Civic Type R's unique styling give the car an aggressive, purposeful stance, yet almost all have a functional purpose. The sleek and aerodynamically efficient design reflects a car developed to perform at speed. The focus on aerodynamics ensures high-speed stability and high levels of down force. Inside the cabin, the Type R's sporting character is reinforced with aesthetic and functional upgrades.
As with previous Type R models, the gear lever knob is made from machined aluminium alloy. High-backed sports seats, trimmed in suede-effect black fabric with red double stitching, provide driver and front-seat passenger with ample lateral support during harder cornering.
At the heart of the Civic Type R is an all-new, direct-injected turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine, which delivers power, torque and performance figures unmatched in the front-wheel drive hot hatch segment. Peak power output is 310 PS* at 6,500rpm, and peak torque is 400Nm* at 2,500rpm – both higher than for any previous Honda Type R model.
The Civic Type R's blistering performance is unmatched in the front-wheel drive hot hatch segment: the 0-to-100 km/h (62mph) sprint is covered in just 5.7 seconds - making it the fastest accelerating performance front-wheel drive hatchback - and top speed, where permitted, is a class leading 167 mph (270 km/h).
The new Civic Type R marks the debut of the new '+R' button that increases the response of various chassis and drivetrain systems. The result is an even more intense driving experience, ideal for the track and sure to be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast.
Upgrade your Civic Type R with the all-new GT Pack and you will benefit from extra convenience features such as front and rear parking sensors, dusk sensing headlamps, rain sensing automatic wipers and electric fold door mirrors. Integrated Garmin satellite navigation (including five years of free map updates) is added to the Honda Connect infotainment system. Audiophiles will be attracted by the addition of a CD player and a premium eight-speaker, 320 watt stereo system upgrade.
