REVVED UP: THE CIVIC TYPE R
The 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine has been specifically optimised and refined for the Civic Type R. You’ll experience an exhilarating driving experience – this is a pure race car for the road. It produces 320PS at 6,500rpm and 400Nm of torque between 2,500rpm and 4,500rpm. The throttle response is faster and the drivability better. The engine is sharper, yet smoother. Honda is famous for building some of the best engines in the world. Its vast motor-racing experience and high-performance engine-building expertise bring stunning performance to the road. The six-speed manual transmission is enhanced by a rev-match control system. This ensures better control of the Type R’s power while retaining the intimate, rewarding connection between driver and car. The result is the fastest front-wheel-drive production car around the legendary Nürburgring circuit in Germany. It clocked a sensational lap time of 7 minutes and 43.8 seconds – over three seconds quicker than the previous record.
Comfort mode is smooth and economical for everyday driving. Sport mode is for thrills on the open road – it’s the default setting for Type R and gives you the precise handling you crave. Then there’s +R for that on-track experience – let Type R loose! You can switch mode at any time during your journey for that extra bit of excitement or for a calmer moment.

REFINED FOR THE RACETRACK
The Type R is based on the lighter, more rigid body shell of the Civic Hatchback. Then further modifications are made such as adding more adhesive in key areas. The result is torsional rigidity increased by 38% over the previous Type R. The front Macpherson strut suspension of the standard hatchback is improved and updated. The revised geometry minimises torque steer and maximises agility, feedback and control. The independent multi-link system of the Civic is upgraded with the use of unique high-rigidity suspension arms.
And to control all that raw power, there’s a high-powered braking system, featuring two-piece floating front brake discs and newly designed brake pads. The system gives you an immediate feel as soon as you touch the brake pedal and is designed to minimise brake fade.
Sharper, harder and more composed, the Civic Type R will perform flawlessly on any road and on every racetrack. Want to hear what performance sounds like? Just feed the engine sound through the car’s speakers using the Active Sound Control function.
The Civic Type R has an aerodynamic package that has been shaped by years of experience on the racetrack, as well as in the wind tunnel. Improvements over the previous version include a smoother underbody and a new front air curtain. The remodelled lightweight rear wing and vortex generators feature on the trailing edge of the roofline. As a result, the Civic Type R boasts a best-in-class balance between lift and drag, contributing to greater high-speed stability.
