Racing DNA

The Type-R delivers hair-raising power and torque, with 0-60 in 5.8 seconds and a top speed 169mph, thanks to the raw power from a refined yet high revving 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine. By offering three new driving modes: Comfort, Sport and a track focused +R mode, you can adapt the Type-R to respond to different surfaces and driving conditions. Whether on the road or the racetrack, complete care and dedication ensures Honda can offer the highest performance car.

Inspired By The Racing Line

The Honda Civic Type-R offers a strong and charismatic hot hatch with muscular, athletic body styling that stands out on the road. Designed and shaped for performance, the aggressive stance with enhanced aerodynamics delivers a thrilling and engaging driving experience. This stunning bold car comes with wide wheel arches which hug the exclusive and impressive 20” alloys.

Close in the slipstream of the Civic Type R GT is its new sporty sibling, the Honda Civic Type R Sport Line. Everything about it is Type R, with lower body panels and 19” alloys that further underline its lineage and DNA.

The Pleasure of Driving

A dark, sporty interior has been designed for better concentration, with fewer distractions, when driving. The seats have been shaped to hold you firm so that you can feel the car when you’re driving in +R mode. The addition of Active Sound Control (ASC), which features individual settings for Type R’s Sport, +R and Comfort driving modes, helps reduce noise levels and vibration – eliminating distractions so that you can focus on the road.

To ensure a pleasurable drive, Honda have provided a range of features that will make driving the New Type-R enjoyable and easy. Features include: Rain Sensing Auto Wipers, Rear Parking Camera, and Driver Information Interface with Colour Display.


With such a powerful car, the Civic Type-R is equipped with a range of technologies and features to ensure optimum safety for drivers and passengers, including Blind Spot information and Cross Traffic monitor. Using their experience and knowledge of racing, Honda has created a real race car experience for the road, with a new suspension design for both confident and sure-footed handling.

Introducing the New Civic Type-R Range

All models in the newly expanded 2020 Honda Civic Type R line-up, including the existing Type R GT, receive a number of styling enhancements. The front bumper is revised with a smoother design, while the lower fog light surrounds feature a new symmetrical design incorporating smooth surfaces and sleek styling blades. The suspension for the 2020 Civic Type R has also been updated for more responsive
and sharper handling.

With the Civic Type R Limited Edition, Honda is unleashing the most extreme version of
its renowned high-performance car. Built as the purest expression of Type R to date, the Limited Edition features new lightweight components, a stripped-back interior, enhanced driving dynamics and stand-out styling.

The second new addition to the Type R range is the Sport Line. Designed to appeal to a customer who seeks a subtler look, Sport Line features a low height rear spoiler, 19-inch alloys and an all-black interior, yet retains the outstanding performance that is a trademark of Type R models.
