Honda Civic Type R in Cockermouth
Discover the new Honda Civic Type R. Building on Honda’s performance heritage, the new Type R boasts pulsating power and track-developed handling that defies belief. Quickly switch from Sport to +R mode to unleash next-level chassis and engine response. At the heart of this glorious car, a 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine with 320PS and 400Nm of torque. Power’s sent to the front wheels through a limited slip differential, making it fast, direct and adjustable - the perfect trio for a scintillating drive. Add in athletic styling, a raucous exhaust and exclusive sports seats, and you’ve got the best Type R yet.
The Civic Type R sits at top of the food chain. It’s unapologetically over engineered, with aerodynamic bodywork, 20” alloy wheels, a huge wing spoiler and hood scoop. The pièce de résistance? Superb bucket seats and exclusive Type R interior styling.
Built for track days, B-roads and everything in-between, this a serious hot hatch for serious drivers. The 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine is immensely flexible, and the 6-speed manual transmission is short and precise. You’ll love every minute behind the wheel.
Hot hatches are supposed to be practical, and the Civic Type R excels. It’s got a huge 420-litre boot and generous rear legroom. The 5-door layout makes access and child seat buckling easy. There’s also ISOFIX on the rear outermost seats.
Living with it
Select ‘Comfort’ mode, and the Civic Type R settles down into a relaxed cruiser. You’ll also see fuel economy of up to 36.7mpg combined. GT models come loaded with kit, including a wireless charging pad and Honda CONNECT with Garmin.
