To the standard Civic hatchback Honda's design team has crafted a model with aggressive looks and practical features. Its aerodynamic shape is sleek and elegant yet it aids performance by helping the car to cut through the air. A two-part mesh grille feeds the engine with cool air to help it maintain optimum output, while the rear wing and diffuser push the vehicle on to the road. Quad exhausts, front fog lights and distinctive alloy wheels are three more exterior details that could have been lifted straight from a race car.
A raft of updates inside the cabin reinforce the feeling that you are at the wheel of a track car. The high-backed sports seats are finished with suede-effect black fabric and red double stitching, while the gear lever is made from machined aluminium alloy. A flat-bottomed steering wheel, Type R badging on the seats, and alloy pedals complete the car's athletic character.
The new Honda Civic Type R's throbbing engine courses with advanced Honda technology, and similar innovations are found within the cabin too.

In terms of equipment the GT Pack is expected to be a popular choice among buyers. It adds an integrated Garmin satellite navigation system to the Honda Connect infotainment system plus a premium eight-speaker audio system.
