RACING IS IN THE BLOOD
Built for the track, the all-new Civic Type R has racing in its DNA. Every inch of this icon draws on the Honda pedigree. With three spine tingling driving modes: Comfort, Sport and +R mode, which at the touch of a button, automatically retunes the suspension, throttle and steering settings for maximum performance – the Civic Type R is made for a special breed.
Designed to challenge what’s possible in a compact hatch, the all-new Civic Type R redefines performance. And it does so in thrilling style. Built with a stiffened front-wheel drive chassis, scalpel sharp 6-speed manual transmission and 2.0-litre VTEC turbo engine – the Civic Type R owns the title of the ultimate hot hatch.
We tested the Civic Type R on the track, now see how our four adrenaline-fuelled athletes – a big wave surfer, two parkour athletes and a V8 supercar driver – handled its speed, agility and performance.
