The turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter VTEC® engine kicks out an exhilarating 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Wrapped in an iconic red cover, it's 70 years of Honda engineering for the track distilled into one Civic: the Type R.
The unique dual-axis MacPherson strut front suspension helps deliver precise response and minimize torque steer when accelerating through turns. An adaptive damper system actively controls the action for everything from smooth cruising to track handling. From +R to Sport and Comfort modes, the 3-Mode Drive System can retune suspension, adjust throttle response and change steering settings to optimize every experience behind the wheel.
A helical limited-slip differential helps minimize front-wheel slippage for more precise steering when accelerating and cornering.
An aluminum shift knob mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission offers the purest connection between car and driver.
A lightweight, reinforced chassis and all-aluminum hood increase rigidity and reduce weight to make the car swifter and nimbler while chasing down the competition.
The specially tuned center-mounted triple-outlet exhaust bellows a throaty growl that broadcasts your departure.
The unmistakable red calipers of Brembo® brakes stand ready when you're charging hard into an apex. A two-piece front-rotor design helps improve brake cooling.
To take advantage of the performance benefits of its BBS forged-aluminum wheels and Michelin® Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the Type R Limited Edition features modified dampers and recalibrated steering, giving you maximum control and feedback.
The wing spoiler is positioned near roof height, creating downforce. The rear diffuser reduces drag for high speed and confidence-inspiring track performance. Vortex generators above the rear window help channel air toward the wing spoiler for high-speed stability and cornering. The functional underbody spoiler kit helps with downforce and airflow to the rear of the vehicle, providing incredible stability and grip at high speeds.
Twenty-inch gloss-black alloy wheels keep the high-performance rubber on the road with style. They frame the large, red Brembo® front brake calipers, which help keep brake fade in check. Through a complex forging process, the BBS wheels on the Type R Limited Edition reach a high degree of material density and weight reduction, for an ideal blend of agility and speed.
An expanded grille opening helps improve air intake to keep the engine bay cooler at speed. The gloss-black accents create a striking frame around the iconic red H-badge, a symbol of our racing legacy.
Available exclusively in Phoenix Yellow, the Type R Limited Edition hearkens back to past Type R limited editions, and adds modern details like a gloss-black roof and gloss-black accents all around.
Heavily bolstered front seats in red-and-black suede-effect fabric can help keep you in place during hard cornering.
The thick, Alcantara®-wrapped steering wheel with a flat bottom gives you the feeling and grip you need to tackle the toughest turns on any track.
Race-inspired sport pedals provide the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed on the track.
The Honda LogR™ datalogger app measures track performance in real time, bringing onboard computer data to your smartphone through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. Check your lap times in the Data Log, or use Auto Score to play back your session.
The multi-angle rearview camera allows you to choose from three different angles—normal, top-down and wide—for a better view of what's behind you every time you reverse.
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions.
The Type R comes with Honda Sensing®, a suite of safety and driver-assistive features designed to assist and help protect you and your passengers.
