The all-new Honda Civic Type R has been developed to deliver race car-like performance using Honda’s expertise and experience in motorsport. And it’s already picking up trophies for its scintillating performance on the road. The next-generation Civic Type R, which is built in the UK, has won Best Hot Hatch at the Auto Express New Car Awards, proving that its front-drive chassis and 320PS engine are more than a match for its rivals.
The Civic Type R won the Hot Hatch of the Year 2017 title for many reasons, one of the main ones being that it combines exceptional usability with exciting driving characteristics and thrilling performance. With 320PS and 400 Nm of torque from its soul-stirring 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine and a sophisticated chassis, both of which helped it to achieve a record-breaking lap time for a front-wheel-drive production car at the Nürburgring, the Type R is the hot hatch taken to the extreme.
Graham Hope, editor at Auto Express, added: “The latest Civic Type R is yet another sensational example of Honda’s engineering expertise… it really does set a new benchmark in its class and is a worthy successor to Honda’s great hot hatches of the past.” Register your interest in the all-new Honda Civic Type R and be one of the first to experience the best hot hatch of 2017 on the road.
