Designed from a dream
“I have always loved cars since I was a small child”
“Our vision for the Civic Type R was manoeuvrability that the driver can put their complete confidence in; and it would make the driver feel like they could keep driving it forever.” It was a dream that came true – in the shape of a Type R. Created with high levels of comfort, unrivalled interior space and track-inspired styling to match its top performance.
Pulsating power, visceral performance.
Building on Honda’s heritage of developing high-performance cars, the Type R shares the same fundamentals as the new 10th generation Civic. Re-engineered from the ground up to deliver the most invigorating and exciting drive in the hot-hatch arena – both on the road and on the race track. Say hello to the most powerful, fastest accelerating, front-wheel-drive car we’ve ever built.
A lithe and muscular look.
It’s stunningly sleek, yet at the same time, aggressively sporty. The Type R has been developed with superior aerodynamics in mind – a physique to minimise drag and lift – as well as head turning looks.
New 20” alloys, unique to the Type R, complement the aggressive sport styling . The car sits low and has a mean look with 245/30 ZR20 tyres that fill the wheel arches perfectly. The body is hard to ignore, designed with short overhangs and taut lines that manage the airflow – over and under the car – for increased high-speed stability.
