Civic Type R
starting from N$ 617,039.00
The Civic Type R is a machine built for one thing, and one thing alone: Performance! After five years in development, engineers finally built the latest Honda to bear the legendary Type R badge. Having taken direction from the Japanese word ‘Buttigiri’, which means ‘to break through and leave the rest behind’, Honda engineers sought to develop a Type R that would more than live up to this high expectation of the red badge.
Inspired by the Honda brand’s thoroughbred racing heritage, the interior’s appeal is more than just skin deep, it is also a supremely comfortable, spacious and versatile place. Exclusively designed front seats provide excellent comfort and support, and the hip point was lowered by 20mm. These sporty bucket seats in red suede-like fabric, leather steering wheel, and alloy gear knob and pedals all lend the interior a solid, comfortable and premium feel. A redesigned rear seat bench unique to the Type R, with revised frame and reduced material thickness, accommodates two passengers and offers a 60 / 40 split fold function and flat loading space when folded.
The Civic Type R’s low-down driving position combined with clear, sporty dials, means the driver can quickly and safely see essential information. From the intelligent Info Display to the controls on the steering wheel, every feature is positioned just where it is needed.
The +R button is located to the right of the steering column. When the +R mode is activated a number of visual changes inform the driver. The floating dial surrounds in the instrument binnacle change from white to red; and several dynamic changes are activated within the Civic Type R’s powertrain and dynamics systems. Engine responsiveness is heightened, with torque-mapping changed to a more aggressive and performance-focused setting allowing more of the available torque to be unleashed at lower engine speeds. The electronic power steering reduces the level of power assistance to provide a heavier and tighter steering feel. The result, simply put, is an intensified driving experience.
The all-new, direct-injected, 2.0 litre VTEC Turbo petrol engine is built for powerful performance. The exhilarating engine produces peak power of 228kW and torque at 400Nm. The Type R boasts superior, hair raising acceleration of 0 -100 in just 5.7 seconds and reaches a class leading top speed of 270km/h. The slick shifting 6-speed manual transmission will make the driver feel power like never before. Despite its astonishing performance, the Civic Type R achieves low CO2 emissions of just 170g/km and exceptional fuel consumption of 7.3 l/100km (combined cycle).
