IT’S THE ‘R’ IN DRIVE
The sheer thrill of driving was the prime reason for the creation of this car. It has a racing spirit that’s not only reflected in the new aerodynamic shape, but it’s something you can sense and feel from the moment your hands touch the steering wheel.
It’s in the blood.
TStarting with the sporty 20″ alloys, combined with the addition of a sleek low-deck aero spoiler, the Type R GT clearly states its intentions. Yet the true source of the car’s athletic character lies under the hood: a super-efficient and powerful VTEC 2.0 litre Turbo engine capable of producing 320 PS. It has a stunning all-black interior and boasts high levels of driving comfort, together with a reduction of noise levels and vibration. It’s a combination that eliminates distractions so you can focus on the road.
The Honda Civic Type R GT is a driver’s car from any angle.The face of change
The Type R GT has a purposeful look. From the front, the lower deck and the newly designed air intake side grilles show off its racing roots.The perfect line
The Type R GT’s lines flow from front to back. Advanced aerodynamics present an uncompromising look; this is a car that gives you the most exhilarating driving experience.The hot hatch
A sight that’s unmistakably Type R, with new rear bumper design and the iconic triple-exhaust pipes, it’s a view of a car that loves to be in front.
A lithe and muscular look.The Type R doesn’t hide its personality - from taillight to headlight, it’s a car built to drive.
It’s stunningly sleek, yet at the same time, aggressively sporty. The Type R has been developed with superior aerodynamics in mind – a physique to minimise drag and lift – as well as head turning looks.
New 20" alloys, unique to the Type R, complement the aggressive sport styling . The car sits low and has a mean look with 245/30 ZR20 tyres that fill the wheel arches perfectly. The body is hard to ignore, designed with short overhangs and taut lines that manage the airflow – over and under the car – for increased high-speed stability.The airflow is kept as close to the body as possible; this equates to increased downforce, less drag and reduced turbulence.The airflow is kept as close to the body as possible; this equates to increased downforce, less drag and reduced turbulence.
The finer points
This is what makes the Type R a race car for the road.Wing spoiler
This signature feature improves aerodynamic performance by providing the right amount of downforce without increasing drag.Aluminium bonnet
Aerodynamically shaped to cut through the air, its weight saving construction with a strategically positioned vent channels air into the engine bay to help everything keep cool.Front vents and front bumper
The airflow underneath the car increases stability too. The low pressure literally ‘sucks' the Type R on to the tarmac to give you extra confidence at high speed.LED lights
These lenses with LED lights are sculptures in glass. Not only do they provide brilliance at night, but naturally contribute to the aerodynamics of Type R.Vortex generators
These small fins create a whirlpool that efficiently draws the air over and away from the rear of the car, reducing drag.Triple exhaust
This unique exhaust system increases performance at higher revs and emits a glorious note from the high powered VTEC TURBO engine.Brembo brakes
Exceptional stopping power in the shape of Brembo calipers with 350mm discs at the front and 305mm at the rear.
Winning the space race
It’s no illusion, it’s for real.Redesigned and reshaped specifically for the Type R, these sport seats provide comfort and support in all driving conditions.
The Civic Type R comes with class-leading interior space, a low centre of gravity, more headroom and a more engaging driving position. The new high-backed racing seats – specially shaped with revised bolsters and cushion pads – are the lightest Type R seats ever created.
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.The airflow is kept as close to the body as possible; this equates to increased downforce, less drag and reduced turbulence.

When the car is stationary, you can even watch a movie via HDMI.Using voice recognition via Bluetooth® you can access information such as playlists stored on your smartphone.
Feel the surge
The Type R responds instantly to the driver, no hesitation.
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.
Depending on your input, the Type R can be tamed or unleashed. Whichever drive mode is selected it constantly analyses speed, roll and G-force – for different road and track conditions – then adjusts the adaptive suspension dampers, steering force, gearshift feeling and throttle response to suit.
Select your drive
The Type R can growl, or roar, whenever the mood takes you.Power at your fingertips
You can change the way the Type R feels by switching between modes even while driving - so when you come to your favourite corner you you can easily flick out of ‘Sport’ to ‘+R’ mode for a quick on-track experience.'Comfort' mode
The Type R gets a new ‘Comfort’ setting – for a smoother and more economical drive.'Sport' mode
This is the default setting for the Type R and provides more precise handling. It provides the optimum vehicle set up for driving on your favourite open road.‘+R’ mode
Track-focused ‘+R’ mode is the setting for a day on a circuit. The Type R becomes closer to you in every sense, you can feel it – definitely hear it – and you’ll begin to know what excitement tastes like too when you let it off the leash.
The teeth of the beastSharper shifting all the way to top gear - and down againFor the ‘old school’ heel-toe technique, the rev matching can be switched off if you wish.
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.
The new rev match control system ensures no compromise in the Type R’s intimate, rewarding connection with the driver. It works progressively in all driving modes allowing you to execute seamless gear shifts without any shift shock - just like a pro.
The best thing about the exhilarating combination of an all-new transmission and turbocharged engine is the time (5.8 seconds) that it takes to go from 0 to 62mph. Enjoy it - while it lasts!The rev-matching transmission provides you with quick shifting in all three driving modes.
Agile handlingThe Type R has a stiffer chassis and a completely new suspension system.The ultimate road test for the Type R was at the famous Nürburgring circuit.
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.
A race-tuned ride
The front MacPherson strut suspension system is revised for the Civic Type R with new geometry to minimise torque steer and maximise sports handling. This car hugs the road and doesn’t protest when you ask for more power.
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.Tight to the apex and accelerate out; the Type R sticks to its line through fast sweeping corners.
Extra sensesThe Civic Type R has advanced safety features designed to keep you and your passengers safe.
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.
