The Type R dynasty
The Civic Type R performance hot hatch was launched in Europe in 2001 and its reputation flourished sporting the red ‘H’ logo. Four generations later sees the arrival of the first Type R range: Type R GT and Type R Sport Line.
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 Sport Line flows from front to back. Advanced aerodynamics and a new bumper design present the uncompromising look of a car that loves to perform.
DIFFERENT TYPES, BOTH TYPE R
Check out the resemblance between the Type R GT and the Type R Sport Line.
TYPE R SPORT LINE
TYPE R GT
The seats have been shaped to hold you firm and steady, so you can feel the car when driving in R mode. At the same time, for everyday driving, comfort is guaranteed with plenty of legroom for passengers too. The low seating position and detailed, eye-catching red interior for the Type R GT reflect its racing roots.
There are dark sport seats for the Type R Sport Line that provide comfort and support in all driving conditions. The Type R may be totally focused on performance at times but can also adapt to suit every day driving requirements.
Feel the power
Naturally, the Type R GT has a racing car style steering wheel, which has been re-designed and wrapped with Alcantara to improve the grip and feel.
Feel the difference
To emphasise the Type R’s sporty nature – shifting up or down – the gear knob has been redesigned with a new ‘tear drop’ shape to improve shift feel and accuracy.
