A full detailed review on and off-track coming soon – SUBSCRIBE

The Civic Type R is the fastest, most powerful Honda of all time produced for the U.S. and the first Honda Civic Type R to be sold in America.

This highly anticipated Civic Type R bring the “Racing Spirit” at the heart of its production vehicles.

Unique statement of type R styling.
All ducts are functional, front mount intercooler, brake cooling ducts, full body kit, lower splitter, winglets, wiser body than typical Civic, lower skirts and air channels for more down force.
Vortex generators integrate with the large rear spoiler.

Three driving modes: Comfort, Sport and R mode
Rev matches give you less delay and quicker response, which you can shut off, but why?

Racing is a core part of Honda DNA and for over 60 years the new technologies and challenging spirit gained on the track translates into the high level of performance in the Civic R. This new Racing at Heart campaign helps celebrate the arrival of the Civic Type R and Si.

The ultimate expression of Civic, has European heritage, performance upgrades and a race car for the road.

The Red Honda badge only goes to Type-R models, this includes race cars. First Civic Type R was built in 1997, through the years the goal is always “Ultimate Sport”.

Type R included a D’shaped racing steering wheel, aluminum shift knob and Type R sport seats. I totally love the sport seats, you’ll want one as a desk chair.

22 / 28 MPG

The meter display changes depending on drive mode giving you different information.
