The turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter VTEC® engine kicks out an exhilarating 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Wrapped in an iconic red cover, it’s 70 years of Honda engineering for the track distilled into one Civic: the Type R.
A lightweight, reinforced chassis and all-aluminum hood increase rigidity and reduce weight to make the car swifter and nimbler while chasing down the competition.
The unique dual-axis MacPherson strut front suspension helps deliver precise response and minimize torque steer when accelerating through turns. An adaptive damper system actively controls the action for everything from smooth cruising to track handling.
A limited-slip differential can offer tighter cornering and better control on every drive, giving you more confidence—and more fun—behind the wheel.
The wing spoiler is positioned near roof height, creating downforce. The rear diffuser reduces drag for high speed and confidence-inspiring track performance.
Vortex generators above the back window help channel air toward the wing spoiler for high-speed stability and cornering.
The functional underbody spoiler kit helps with downforce and airflow to the rear of the vehicle, providing incredible stability and grip at high speeds.
Heavily bolstered front seats in red-and-black suede-effect fabric can help keep you in place during hard cornering.
Race-inspired sport pedals provide the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed on the track.
The new aluminum shift knob mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission offers the purest connection between car and driver.
The new, Alcantara®-wrapped steering wheel with a flat bottom gives you the feeling and grip you need to tackle the toughest turns on any track.
The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ features maps with 3-D renderings of terrain, buildings and road signs, and provides lane guidance and a live search function.
Android Auto™ connects to your compatible Android™ phone for destinations, appointments and even the weather.
The Type R now comes with Honda Sensing®, a suite of safety and driver-assistive features designed to alert you to things you might miss while driving.
CMBS can help bring your Honda to a stop by automatically applying brake pressure when the system determines that a frontal collision is unavoidable.
RDM can determine if you cross over detected lanes without signaling, can provide steering assistance to help you return to your lane or provide braking to help you keep from leaving the roadway entirely.
ACC helps you maintain a set following interval behind detected vehicles for highway driving.
