Wait Is Over: Honda Launch New Hot Hatchback

It has been five years in the waiting but Honda has finally released the Civic Type R – their first turbo-charged Type R in history.

Goodwood Festival of Speed visitors got a chance to look at the new supercar in action last month as the Japanese car manufacturer had it on display. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, the Honda Type R appears to be worth the wait.

The super-fast Type R is front-wheel drive and is capable of 0-62mph in just 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 167mph. This is made possible by its world-first turbo-charged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine and it is sure to have caused of plenty of interest at the West Sussex motor show.

Priced under the £30k mark at £29,995 for the entry-level model, there is also a GT version of the Type R which will cost an additional £2,300.

Honda has given the Civic a more aggressive appearance with a big emphasis on speed and making it look sportier. It has all the same characteristics as previous Honda models with high-backed sports seats trimmed in suede-effect black fabric and red double stitching and aluminum alloy gear lever.

But the Japanese carmaker has added lots of additional features such as Dual Pinion Electric Power Steering which Honda says will allow the car to deliver rapid steering response.

Honda have also introduced a new plus R button which increases the response of various chassis and drivetrain systems and is designed to give an ‘an even more intense driving experience’.

Optional extras include front and rear parking sensors, rain sensor, dusk sensing headlamps, electric folding mirrors and integrated Garmin satellite navigation system. There is also the option of an additional CD player and upgrade to a premium eight-speak 320 watt stereo system.

The Honda Type R does not appear to have disappointed the motoring press either with one calling it ‘a brilliant hot hatch that is distinct from the existing completion, wild-looking and yet polished fun to drive’.
