Sheer style

The new Civic Type R has been completely revamped from front to back, inside and out.

True colours

Will your Type R be bright and sporty, or is a dark and moody shade a bit more you? Pick a colour now and see for yourself how it looks.

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.

Lasting impressions

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.

Shaped to cut through the air like an arrow - designed to cut lap times too.

The airflow is kept as close to the body as possible; this equates to increased downforce, less drag and reduced turbulence.

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.

Greater capacity

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.
