Civic Type R

Performance, perfected

Record breaker

Watch the Type R set a 07:50 lap around the Nurburgring.

Every time you step into the Civic Type R, you wield exhilarating racing performance tuned on the racetrack.


Born to race

The Civic Type R is the hottest of all the hatches. Can you keep your cool?

Red blooded power

The 2015 Civic Type R is the fastest front-wheel drive production car to take on the Nurbrgring racetrack.

The blistering time of 07:50.63 was made possible by the Type R’s all-new, direct-injected, turbocharged 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol engine. It delivers hair-raising power, torque and performance – accelerating from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 167mph.

Sticks to the track

The Civic Type R red lines at 306bhp at 7,000rpm. And with its peak torque at 400Nm, you’ll experience performance greater than any Civic Type R ever built.

Traffic Sign Recognition

Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) automatically recognises road signs and displays them via the Intelligent Multi Information Display, so you always know exactly what you’ve just passed.


The Civic Type R has been fitted with airbags all round, including curtain airbags. Known as Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), the airbags offer you greatly enhanced protection while out on the road.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning detects the road markings. If the car strays from your current lane without indicating, the system alerts you with audible and visual warnings.

Blind Spot Information

We’ve introduced a Honda-first radar technology called Blind Spot Information, which can automatically detect vehicles where your vision is restricted.

City-Brake Active System

All kinds of bumps and knocks can happen in car parks or even on your own driveway. CTBA is a laser radar system that scans ahead, automatically applying the brakes if a risk of a possible collision is detected.
