With unparalleled levels of performance and a starting price under £30k, the new Civic Type-R has received unprecedented interest - Visit our Chippenham or Gloucester Showroom today to see it for yourself!
As with previous generations of the Civic Type R, the latest version is aggressively styled to make a statement on the roads. The updates to the Civic’s styling don’t represent style over substance though; a focus on aerodynamics have produced a car which performs admirably at speed, with impressive levels of downforce and road stability
Inside the cabin, a range of additional features and upgrades reflect the fact that you’re behind the wheel of a race car for the road. The machined aluminium gear knob of previous models makes a welcome return, whilst suede-effect sports seats with red stitching make a real statement whilst providing the drive and front passenger with increased support.
Under the bonnet of the Type R, you’ll find a brand new turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC petrol engine which generates an astonishing 306BHP at 6,500rpm and 400Nm of torque - higher than any previous Civic Type R model.
0-62mph is achieved in just 5.7 seconds, which makes the new Type R the fastest accelerating front-wheel drive hatchback on the market with a top speed of 167mph!
Each part of the Civic Type R has been beautifully designed for stability at high-speed.
Aerodynamics developed on the Nurburgring racetrack add a bold and sporty stance to the Civic Type R. The deep side skirts, sweeping lines, and sporty vents above the wheels and behind the arches channel air to increase downforce and improve cooling.
The extreme splitters and sleek rear spoiler design also manage airflow to ensure the Civic Type R grips the tarmac, while the quad exhausts channel the throaty roar of the engine to the rear of the car.
The Civic Type R features our new Honda Connect technology. It’s a central touchscreen that puts all the things you love in life, like your music and your friends, right at your fingertips.
The 7” touchscreen can be personalised with your favourite photos and provides easy access to your mobile phone contacts.
The touchscreen monitor also gives you access to all your mobile phone functionality, via Bluetooth™. You’ve also got WiFi, USB and HDMI™ connections to give you internet and music for your journeys!
The 2015 Civic Type R is the fastest front-wheel drive production car to take on the Nurburgring racetrack.
The blistering time of 07:50.63 was made possible by the Type R’s all-new, direct-injected, turbocharged 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol engine. It delivers hair-raising power, torque and performance – accelerating from 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 167mph.
