The all-new Civic Type R introduces a newly developed single-scroll turbocharger that’s smaller and lighter, with improved rotational response and increased torque.
The rear spoiler—the mark of the Civic Type R—forms a winged cross-sectional shape with a carefully calculated angle of attack. A lightweight aluminum die-cast stay is used to achieve powerful downforce and low drag.
The 265-millimeter-wide tires were developed exclusively for the Civic Type R. Lightweight, high-rigidity 19-inch aluminum wheels with a reverse rim structure provide excellent ground contact and high-grip performance.
In addition to the original powerful exhaust sound, the active exhaust valve mechanism tunes the opening according to the engine speed. The active sound control boosts the cabin sound, generating an exhaust sound that intensifies as you step on the accelerator.
The engine starts and the meter and
navigation screen are displayed.
Easy-to-operate navigation on the 9-inch color touch-screen gives you access to useful applications, including the Civic Type R dedicated data logger application, Honda LogR™.
The Civic Type R dedicated data logger app, Honda LogR™, is standard and accessible through the 9-inch color touch-screen. In addition to saving driving data, it automatically analyzes and scores the data, helping you understand your driving characteristics and learn the skills to drive more stably and efficiently, and—on closed courses—faster, too. It’s also equipped with a full-scale circuit driving data-analysis function with automatic lap-time measurement.
On-board video taken with a smartphone can be combined with running vehicle data to create an exciting video experience. You can even upload your driving data to review and compare with other users’ data on your smartphone.
The new Individual mode lets you select settings from +R, Sport, and Comfort modes to suit your preferences. The settings are retained even when the engine is restarted, so you can immediately enjoy your desired drive feel. In addition to the drive-mode switch, a dedicated +R button is always at the ready.
The dedicated +R mode gauge displays the tachometer and the customizable Honda LogR™ driving information. An LED rev indicator at the top promotes precise shifting under severe driving conditions.
A specially designed leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching provides excellent grip, and you can enjoy increased steering responsiveness thanks to a torsion bar with 1.6 times more torsional rigidity than the previous-generation Civic Type R.
Each Civic Type R has its unique serial number emblazoned on the instrument panel on a gunmetal-painted emblem.
Dual-zone automatic climate control helps keep temperatures ideal for you and your passengers.
The bolstered, bright-red seats support you through intense G-force on the circuit with remarkable comfort and promote breathability in areas where your body is in close contact.
The high-rigidity 6-speed manual transmission offers a direct and smooth shift feel with a link mechanism that’s unique to the Civic Type R. A teardrop-type aluminum shift knob lets you shift in style.
