Wrapped in an iconic red engine cover, 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, reinforced chassis and all-aluminum hood increase rigidity and reduce weight to make the car more swift and nimble while chasing down the competition.
20-inch gloss 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 exterior design of the Type R blends ferocious style with performance optimization, helping you handle roads and racetracks with precision.
The front fender vents work in tandem with the functional hood scoop to enhance engine-compartment cooling.
The functional underbody spoiler kit helps with downforce and 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 wing spoiler for high-speed stability and cornering.
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®* 4-piston front brake calipers.
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.
Heavily bolstered 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 provide the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed on the track.
An aluminum shift knob mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission offers the purest connection between car and driver.

Whether you’re taking the Civic Type R for a spin on the freeway or a rip around the speedway, there’s a driving mode and meter display screen for every mood.
Customizable digital meters display boost pressure, G-force, lap times, rev limit, and throttle and brake input in real time, so you can maximize your track performance.
With a glossy 7-inch Display Audio touch-screen in the dash and a booming 540-watt, 12-speaker premium audio system, the Civic Type R is an unmatched driving experience.
