The bloodline continues with our latest Honda Civic Type R. It’s the most powerful, fastest-accelerating, front-wheel drive hatchback around and holds lap records at five major European circuits – that’s why we call it a race car for the road.


Designed from a dream

"I have always loved cars since I was a small child".

"Our vision for the Civic Type R was manoeuvrability that the driver can put their complete confidence in; and it would make the driver feel like they could keep driving it forever.” It was a dream that came true – in the shape of a Type R. Created with high levels of comfort, unrivalled interior space and track-inspired styling to match its top performance.

Pulsating power, visceral performance.

Building on Honda's heritage of developing high-performance cars, the Type R shares the same fundamentals as the new 10th generation Civic. Re-engineered from the ground up to deliver the most invigorating and exciting drive in the hot-hatch arena – both on the road and on the race track. Say hello to the most powerful, fastest accelerating, front-wheel-drive car we’ve ever built.
