The stylish and powerful Civic Type R recognises the need for speed without compromising on a comfortable and responsive driving experience. Extra features like the R+ mode, which adjusts the steering to suit aspiring racers, adds an extra element of fun to the standard model.
The exterior of the Civic Type R emphasises the speed and power of the vehicle, along with its real sense of the fun of driving. The RR wing spoiler, Shark Fin antenna and privacy glass, all fitted as standard, add to the exclusive, assertive appearance.
Practical exterior features include the LED daytime running lights, which increase the visibility of the vehicle at all hours of the day. The halogen headlights and fog lights cut a bright path through darkness and fog, helping the driver avoid preventable accidents.
The interior of the Civic Type R is finished to a high standard, with a leather-upholstered steering wheel, alloy shift knob and red suede-type fabric sports seats. A whole host of useful features as standard including climate-controlled air conditioning and telescopic steering wheel adjustment, making the journey as comfortable as possible for the driver.
The powerful 2.0 litre i-VTEC Turbo engine powers the car to an impressive top speed of 168mph and enables it to race from 0-60mph in around 5.7 seconds.
The four-wheel Adaptive Damper System (ADS) adjusts the car’s suspension to suit the road, while the R+ mode increases performance, tightens steering and maximises grip.
In terms of fuel economy the car can achieve 31mpg, with CO2 emissions pitched at 215g/km. Idle Stop also comes as standard, a system which saves fuel by turning off the engine when the vehicle is idling.
As with all Honda’s vehicles, safety is a central concern and the Type R comes with a wide range of features designed to prevent accidents and protect passengers. The City-Brake Active System detects obstacles and applies the brakes before a collision occurs. The car is fitted with multiple front and side airbags, including a driver side airbag with dual stage inflation and a front passenger airbag with cut-off switch.
The Civic Type R is fitted with the latest technology as standard, with a rear parking camera, two USB ports and a Honda CONNECT audio system touchscreen. The car is also Bluetooth compatible to ensure drivers can safely make phone calls on the move.
