The sheer thrill of driving was the prime reason for the creation of this car. Designed from the ground up, with a sleek, smooth and aerodynamic shape, the award-winning Civic Type R range has been expanded with two new variants – Limited Edition and Sport Line.
Starting with its sporty 20″ alloys, together with full LED headlight clusters and daytime running lights, the Type R GT has been given a cleaner styling direction. Yet the true source of the car’s athletic character lies under the hood; a super-efficient and powerful VTEC 2.0-litre Turbo engine, capable of producing 320 PS. The addition of Active Sound Control (ASC), which features individual settings for Type R’s Sport, +R and Comfort driving modes, helps reduce noise levels and vibration – eliminating distractions so that you can focus on the road.
The Type R GT has a purposeful look. From the front, the lower deck and the newly designed air intake side grilles show off its racing roots. The Type R GT’s lines flow from front to back. Advanced aerodynamics present an uncompromising look; this is a car that gives you the most exhilarating driving experience. A sight that’s unmistakably Type R, with new rear bumper design and the iconic triple-exhaust pipes, it’s a view of a car that loves to be in front.
A dark, sporty interior has been designed for better concentration, with fewer distractions, when driving the Type R Sport Line. The seats have been shaped to hold you firm and steady so that you can feel the car when you’re driving in +R mode. At the same time, for everyday driving, comfort is guaranteed, with plenty of legroom for your passengers too.
The Type R responds instantly to the driver, no hesitation. At its heart is a soul-stirring 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine. It’s raw, it’s powerful, it produces 320 PS (400Nm of torque) and a large dose of adrenaline when you hear the mighty roar of the triple-exit exhaust.
Depending on your input, the Type R can be tamed or unleashed. Whichever drive mode is selected it constantly analyses speed, roll and G-force – for different road and track conditions – then adjusts the adaptive suspension dampers, steering force, gearshift feeling and throttle response to suit.
The Civic Type R’s new six-speed manual transmission allows us to give you our most invigorating acceleration ever. This car will take hold of your emotions and won't let go.
The Type R has a stiffer chassis and a completely new suspension system. The Type R’s torsional strength has been increased by 38% and the dynamic benefit of this is its determined and purposeful performance. With intimate contact between you, the car and the road you can drive with total confidence. A race-tuned ride. The front MacPherson strut suspension system is revised for the Civic Type R with new geometry to minimise torque steer and maximise sports handling. This car hugs the road and doesn’t protest when you ask for more power.
