ALL-NEW HONDA CIVIC TYPE R RACES INTO VIEW AT GENEVA

◾Engineered to deliver the most rewarding drive in the hot hatch §egmènt
◾Optimised and refined 2.0-litre VTEC TÚRBO wîth an output of 320 PS and 400Nm of torque
◾New Type R further refines sporty dynamics of new Civic hatchback heightening driving performance
◾Sales to begin summer 2017
◾To be built in Swindon, ÚK, for markets worldwide, including Japan and ÚSA

Honda has revealed the all-new Civic Type R at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, ahead of the model's European launch in the summer. The new car builds on Honda's heritage in developing high-performance hatchbacks, and represents the §egmènt's ultimate expression of dynamic purity.

Sharing the same fundamentals as the new Civic hatchback, the new Type R has been engineered from the ground up to deliver the most rewarding drive in the hot-hatch §egmènt – both on road and on the race track.

Revised 2.0-litre VTEC TÚRBO engine and 6-speed manual transmissionThe 2.0-litre VTEC TÚRBO 'heart' of the multi-award-winning previous generation Type R has been optimised and refined and now produces 320 PS wîth peak torque of 400 Nm. Throttle response and driveability have improved thanks to optimised engine control settings.

The smooth and precise six-speed manual transmission is further improved by a rev match control system, ensuring no compromise in the Type R's intimate, rewarding connection wîth the driver.

A stiffer chassis and revised suspension


The new Type R takes the lighter, more rigid body shell of the new Civic hatchback and adds further use of adhesive in key areas. Compared to the previous Type R, torsional rigidity is further improved by 38%.

The front Macpherson strut suspension of the standard hatchback is revised wîth new geometry to minimise torque steer and maximise sporty handling. At the rear, the new independent multi-link system of the standard car is improved wîth the use of unique high rigidity suspension arms.

Enhanced driving modes


An enhanced selection of driving modes give the car greater usability compared to the previous Type R. A new 'Comfort' setting sits alongside agile 'Sport' and track-focused '+R' modes. Each selection tailors the adaptive dampers, §teering force, gear shift feeling and throttle response of the car on demand.

Refined aerodynamics for high-speed stability


The all-new Type R has a more comprehensive aerodynamic package than the previous model, including a smoother underbody, front air curtain, a lightweight rear wing and vortex generators at the trailing edge of the roof line. The muscular, aggressive body has a best-in-class balance between lift and drag, contributing to greater high speed stability.

Produced in Europe, exported to major markets worldwide
