Honda Civic Type R in Gravesend Kent
What makes a performance car? Is it the speed? The handling? The whoosh and roar when you plant your foot? All these things are great in isolation, but what really makes a performance car is soul, and the harmony between driver and machine. When two become one, the sheer thrill of driving takes over.
The Honda Civic Type R is built to speak to your soul. Its 2.0 VTEC turbo engine smacks out 320PS and 400Nm of torque with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with rev matching. The suspension is tuned to corner like no other car. It’s so good that it set a new record for front-wheel-drive cars on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Choose from the Type R and Type R GT trim levels. The popular GT model has front and rear parking sensors, Garmin navigation and wireless charging.
Big rear wing. Triple exhaust. Splitters. Racing seats. Muscular bonnet. The Civic Type R takes everything a hot hatch should have and blends it all together. It’s a striking and bold performance car worthy of admiring glances.
In Honda’s relentless pursuit of performance they have created the best handling hot hatch ever. The Civic Type R is tuned to dominate the racetrack and road, and the performance at full throttle is pin-back-into-your-seat fast.
The Type R is a great daily driver. It has five doors, a spacious back row for three adult passengers and an enormous 420-litre boot. GT models have Blind Spot Information and Cross Traffic Monitor to make your journeys safer.
Living with it
Thanks to three switchable drive modes: Sport, +R and Comfort, the Civic Type R is just as capable cruising as it is cornering. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and a rear parking camera are standard features.
