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.
New from the ground up, the 2017 Type R is a charismatic hot hatch with muscular, athletic body styling. A more aggressive stance with enhanced aerodynamics delivers a thrilling and engaging driving experience.
The wide wheel arches hug the imposing and impressive 20” alloys and under the track-honed exterior is a new suspension design for confident, sure-footed handling.
When you’re not laying down rubber on a circuit, the Type R has a practical side as well. Imagine a weekend away with a few friends; the Type R’s large boot can easily take all your driving kit and weekend bags.
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.
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.
It’s the most extreme, high-performance engine we've ever built for a Type R and it is complemented by three new driving modes: ‘Comfort’, ‘Sport’ and a track-focused ‘+R’ mode. They allow you to adapt the Type R's response to different surfaces and conditions - whether on the road or the racetrack.
At its heart is a soul-stirring 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine. It’s raw,
it’s powerful, it produces 320 PS (400Nm of torque) and a large dose of
adrenaline when you hear the mighty roar of the triple-exit exhaust.
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.
Get the ultimate peace of mind, feel confident and secure with even more Honda safety features.
Collision Mitigation Braking System
If there is a possibility of a collision with a vehicle or a pedestrian this feature will alert you to the danger as well as reducing your speed to help minimise the severity of any impact.
Lane Keeping Assist System
Helps keep you in the middle of your lane and reduces the need for steering correction movements and driving effort; it provides a less stressful driving experience, particularly on the motorway.
Traffic Sign Recognition
The Traffic Sign Recognition System identifies traffic signs and relays this information to you via a visual display. Two signs can be displayed at any one time.
Intelligent Speed Limiter
Cleverly combines the existing adjustable speed limiter function with the Traffic Sign Recognition system. It automatically sets the speed limit to that which the Traffic Sign Recognition system detects.
