POWERTRAIN
Turbocharged Engine
With a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter VTEC® engine that delivers 315 horsepower* and 310 pound-feet of torque,* the all-new Civic Type R is not only more responsive than the previous generation, but also boasts a higher power-weight ratio.
POWERTRAIN
6-Speed Manual Transmission
For better balance while braking into corners, the 6-speed manual transmission features rev-match control, which keeps engine and vehicle speeds in sync during downshifting. A new Civic Type R-exclusive shift link mechanism has shorter throws and makes shifting even smoother.
POWERTRAIN
Triple-Outlet Exhaust
Whether you’re ripping down a straightaway on the track or cruising through the city, the center-mounted triple-outlet exhaust’s Active Exhaust Valve strikes the perfect chord. Each mode of the 4-mode drive system features its own specially tuned exhaust note.
Shown in Crystal Black Pearl.
SUSPENSION
Dual-Axis Front Suspension
Accelerate through corners with maximum confidence, thanks to the unique dual-axis MacPherson strut front suspension that helps minimize torque steer and deliver precise steering response.
Shown in Crystal Black Pearl.
SUSPENSION
Multi-Link Rear Suspension
With high-rigidity components, the rear suspension offers stability and support for a linear handling response.
Shown in Sonic Gray Pearl.*
SUSPENSION
Adaptive Damper System
As you steer through corners, the adaptive damper system helps control roll and pitch to give you a uniform, direct steering feel. With the 4-mode drive system, you can instantly tune the dampers for performance or comfort.
Shown in Rallye Red.
HANDLING
Brembo® Front Brake Calipers
Renowned for their braking performance and lightweight construction, four-piston Brembo®* calipers complement the13.8 inch two-piece front rotors for optimal stopping power.
Shown in Rallye Red.
HANDLING
Limited-Slip Differential
A helical limited-slip differential helps minimize front-wheel slippage for more precise steering when accelerating and cornering.
Shown in Boost Blue Pearl.*
HANDLING
Electric Power Steering
The dual-pinion, variable-ratio electric power steering offers confidence at high speeds and a precise feel at low speeds. And with the 4-mode drive system, you can instantly tune the steering to your drive, from +R mode at the track to Comfort mode on the highway.
Shown in Crystal Black Pearl.
HANDLING
Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4 S Tires
Measuring 265 mm wide—20 mm wider than the previous-generation Civic Type R tires—the Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4 S* tires provide improved grip while cornering.
Shown in Rallye Red.
HANDLING
Lightweight Components
Every ounce counts on the track, which is why virtually every inch of the Civic Type R features lightweight components, from the flywheel and crankshaft to the resin-made hatch, aluminum hood, and sport seats.
