What the press say

Auto Express (Best Hot Hatch at Auto Express Awards 2017):

The Type R's more mature nature hasn't come at the expense of excitement

New Car Net (read more):

Throughout the Civic Type R there’s a recurring theme of precision. There’s something almost clinical about the way it dissects a good road, covering ground at a rate we simply wouldn’t have thought possible for a front-wheel drive hot hatch a few years ago. At the same time, improvements to the ride, interior quality and acoustics have all succeeded in broadening out the car’s appeal. It remains a relatively hardcore choice, but one that’s now far more accessible.

New Motoring (watch):

What to make of the new Type R? In a word - it's brilliant

Inside Lane (watch):

One of the best hot hatchbacks in its class? Undoubtedly.

Autocar (read more):

So away from the all-wheel-drive, all-weather mega-hatches, the Honda Civic Type R remains alone, with a fundamentally appealing character unlike anyone else’s hottest hatchbacks. And there’s quite a lot to like about that.

Car Throttle (read more):

I'm very happy to report that the FK8 Type R has no obvious flaws that I can think of. It now rides brilliantly, is perfectly comfortable over long distances, looks wicked (I know I'm in a minority here) and is a car you can use as a daily driver and as a track car that will embarrass almost anything you put in its path.

We're going to stick our bits on the block and name this the new hot hatch king
