IF YOU NEVER TRY, YOU’LL NEVER KNOW
The bloodline continues with our latest Honda Civic Type R. A car only Honda could make, the Type R reflects our unique thinking – our drive for constant reinvention, re-evaluation and relentless pursuit of better. It’s a car built for the sheer thrill of driving, a car built with soul, a car that speaks to you the way few others can.
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 to give you a true feeling of connection with the car and the road, the Type R’s muscular shape is as dramatic as it is functional. Every sculpted line and aerodynamic detail work together – optimizing airflow, boosting down-force, providing razor-sharp handling and maximizing power transfer to the road. It was born to perform.
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.
Sharper shifting all the way to top gear - and down again
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 best thing about the exhilarating combination of an all-new transmission and turbocharged engine is the time (5.8 seconds) that it takes to go from 0 to 62mph. Enjoy it - while it lasts!
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.
At the rear, the new multi-link arrangement is improved by the unique, high-rigidity independent suspension arms. Altogether, it provides an incredibly surefooted driving performance.
