2021 Honda Civic Type ‘R’

The Stuff you Need to Know.

The Civic Type R is an award-winning, record-breaking performance vehicle.

The purposeful exterior of the Type R is matched only by its dramatic cockpit, a place designed to make your heartbeat faster, even before you press the engine start button. Its motorsport inspired interior has everything you need just where you need it, with clear and easy to read gauges, alloy gear shift knob.

The combination of the 2.0L DOHC VTEC engine, 6 speed manual transmission, and three driving modes, means the Type R can take you anywhere, from urban streets to the open road.

The Civic Type R is packed with details such as the front air curtain and rear diffuser which enhance the car’s performance, whilst the clever roof mounted vortex generators guide air over the back of the car for a more efficient airflow. At the same time as being passionate about performance we are committed to keeping you safe, which is why a great deal of clever engineering is at work in the Type R. As you would expect from a member of the Civic family, the Type R comes with a host of safety technologies including the latest Honda SENSING suite that includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control.

It may have a motorsport feel but it is not lacking in equipment or comfort. From your race-inspired seat, you are surrounded by premium soft touch materials, climate control, cruise control, electronic parking brake and a 7" touchscreen Advanced Display Audio and information system. This is linked to Apple CarPlay and
Android Auto, which seamlessly integrates your iPhone or Android phone to the display, allowing you to make calls, listen to music and send and receive messages.
Exclusive to the new Type R is the LogR performance datalogger. A new system combining the onboard computer and built-in sensors with a companion smartphone app to help drivers monitor and improve their driving.
