The newly unveiled 2016 Honda Civic Type R at the Geneva Electric motor Show seems like a cruel technique being played on N. American hot hatch followers. Even if the European version’s oval shape and huge wing do not create the peak of auto charm, it’s hard to question the car’s performance ability, specifically after the 7:50.63 lap around the Nurburing.

Style – Interior and Exterior

Not all the brilliant details sported by the Civic Kind R idea were maintained on the production version, with the “adversary’s horns” taillights integrated into that massive back wing missing from the design brought at the 2015 Geneva Motor Program. Despite that, the new Type R is far from looking controlled, with practically every inch of its broad bodykit looking like it came directly off a Touring Auto model.

The side view is additionally motorsport-related in terms of design, with practical outlet vents being visible on both the front quarter panel above the wheels as well as behind them, near the door. Enlarged wheel arcs that house 19-inch wheels in 235/35 R190 tires specifically made for the Kind R are likewise present, in addition to a collection of aerodynamically-enhanced side skirts. The back side is where most of the magic occurs in regards to styling, although the back wing looks a bit less scary than on the Civic Type R Idea from 2013. The good news is, the four-pipe exhaust system exists in manufacturing form, as is the functional aerodynamic diffuser.


Compared to the exterior, the Civic Type R’s log cabin is a bit less elegant, however you will certainly never ever confuse it with a typical Civic econobox in regards to stylish information. A gear lever made from machined aluminum alloy is present, like on practically every previous Type R design, while the front seats are deeply shaped to supply ample side assistance throughout tough cornering.

Cut in black and red material with a swede effect and red dual stitching, the seats are come with by a leather-engulfed sports guiding wheel that is additionally decorated with red double-stitching and red natural leather inserts, consisting of a 12 o’clock mark. The red accents are discovered in nearly every location of the cockpit, including the dash, the instrument collection and an “+R” go-fast switch.

The Engine range

The first-ever turbocharged Type R is powered by a 2.0-liter direct-injected super VTEC four-cylinder, which rotates out 306 horsepower at 6500 revoltions per minute as well as 295 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm– both of which are the highest-ever numbers for a Honda Type R model– and also strikes redline at 7000 revoltions per minute. Honda claims that the brand-new Type R rockets from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 5.7 secs and that it could attain a top rate of 168 miles per hour.

2016 Honda Civic Type R Price

There is no mention of prices yet, yet the existing range-topping Civic is the Ex Lover Plus at $ 25,255 ($38,493 since 2/11/2015), so I would certainly expect the Type R to check in around $31,000 ($47,249 as of 2/11/2015).

While the new Honda Civic Type R will certainly go on sale in Europe in a few months time, it might not arrive locally till 2017 as Honda Australia wants to get the brand-new NSX hybrid supercar on the roadway.
