Honda Civic Type R: Inspired ​by Racing

The Honda Civic Type R​ has been designed to be the fastest front-wheel-drive car in the world. This latest model is sleeker, lighter, and faster than any previous model of the Civic Type R and has outperformed every other variant. When the new Civic Type R was designed every fraction of a second mattered, which has led to optimised airflow and improved downforce by the use of new diffusers, spoiler, and wings, resulting in sharper handling and high-speed stability. The new Civic Type R has been designed to deliver an exhilarating driving experience while standing out from the crowd with its unique Type R badging, triple exhausts, and distinctive front grille. Inside you will find new racing seats in red suede upholstery which hug you as you're thrown into tight corners. To enhance the racing feel, the gear lever has been upgraded to an alloy shifter that complements the stainless steel sport pedals. Topping off the immersive cabin experience is the 10.2" multi-info display and the 9" Honda CONNECT infotainment system with smartphone connectivity.
