The bloodline continues with our latest Honda Civic Type R. A car only Honda could make, the Type R reflects our unique thinking – our drive for constant reinvention, re-evaluation and relentless pursuit of better. It’s a car built for the sheer thrill of driving, a car built with soul, a car that speaks to you the way few others can.


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.  Designed from the ground up, each component has been created and tested with the purpose of giving you the most exhilarating driving experience.

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 to give you a true feeling of connection with the car and the road, the Type R’s muscular shape is as dramatic as it is functional. Every sculpted line and aerodynamic detail work together – optimising airflow, boosting down-force, providing razor-sharp handling and maximising power transfer to the road. It was born to perform.
