Wrapped in iconic red cowling, the 2.0-liter VTEC® Turbocharged Engine is 70 years of Honda engineering for the track distilled into one Civic—the Type R.
A Lightweight Chassis and all-aluminum hood reduces weight to make the car more swift, nimble and ready to chase down the competition.
20-Inch Black Alloy Wheels keep the high-performance rubber on the road with style, and frame the large, red Brembo® front brake calipers that help keep brake fade in check.
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 Front Splitter helps underbody airflow, generating downforce for improved steering control, while Front Air Curtains contribute to consistent braking performance.
The Vented Front Fenders accommodate the widened track stance, while helping pull out turbulent air around the tires to reduce drag and help keep handling predictability at its best.
Functional Side Skirts help with downforce & airflow to the rear of the vehicle, providing incredible stability at high speeds and grip on the track.
Vortex Generators above the back window help to channel air toward the Rear Wing for high-speed stability, cornering and braking.
From the aggressive lines and sleek angles to the available exclusive Championship White paint, the Civic Type R looks fast and drives faster. Indulge every sense at a glance.
The iconic red H badge, a symbol of our racing legacy, is exclusive to the Civic Type R. Together with the aggressive front bumper and LED Headlights with Auto-On/Off, the front end connects our heritage and our future.
True to the original Civic Type R, the versatile hatchback body style gets a light, stiff chassis and wide fenders to fit 20-inch Alloy Wheels and Brembo® brakes.
Each Civic Type R is truly one of a kind, featuring a unique serial number printed on a metal plaque below the aluminum Shift Knob.
Lightweight Bucket Front Seats in red and black suede-effect fabric can help keep you in place during hard cornering while still being comfortable enough for daily drives.
Race-inspired Sport Pedals add to an overall track-ready style while also providing the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed.
