Honda has confirmed pricing for its highly anticipated all-new Civic Type R. The latest Type R follows a long tradition of high-performance vehicles inspired by the spirit of racing, pushing the boundaries of performance in a front-wheel drive car. Despite its performance-focused upgrades, the new Type R builds on the human-centred approach to dynamics, design, and usability that Honda engineered into the 11th generation Civic.

Recommended prices for the Civic Type R will begin at £46,995*. The car will also be available on finance, from £499 per month / 8.9% APR** through Honda Financial Services.

For that price, customers will get the most advanced and complete Civic Type R to date. Honda engineers have refined every aspect of the new model, including design enhancements that improve aerodynamic performance, lightweight components, and an increase in power.

The most capable Type R ever

The latest generation is the fastest and most capable Civic Type R ever, which builds on the capabilities of the previous model, and the exceptional platform of the all-new standard Civic. Only one engine option is available in the Type R, the strongest, most powerful VTEC Turbo ever produced by Honda. The revised six-speed manual transmission offers faster and more responsive gear changes, paired with a new rev-match system and auto blip feature that ensure perfect down shifting to help balance the car on corner entry.

Other standard specification features include the bespoke Type R styling elements that make it lower and wider than the standard car; of which, only the front doors and rear tailgate are retained. New sculpted and aerodynamically formed wheel arches are paired with subtle yet purposeful bumpers and an updated rear spoiler to offer a comprehensive level of useable downforce. Also fitted as standard are the new, reverse-rim lightweight 19-inch matt black alloy wheels, wrapped in bespoke compound Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.

Inside, the Civic Type R benefits from the same high levels of comfort, practicality, and refinement as the all-new Civic, only elevated through the application of performance-focused items and the use of the evocative, classic Type R crimson red trim. The fully customisable and digital binnacle is standard on the Type R and is core to achieving a centralised cockpit layout that enhances driver concentration during intense driving experiences. The dial set works in conjunction with the multiple drive modes and offers increasingly concentrated layers of driver information.

For the first time on a Type R, the pre-defined drive modes are joined by a new, fully programmable 'Individual Mode' which offers drivers the autonomy to tailor their car to their preferences in a number of areas such as suspension, throttle response, steering, display read out, engine noise and more. These options can be tailored through the central, large touchscreen display as well as several new options and functions within the infotainment system, which incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Amongst these new functions is Honda LogR; a highly integrated data-logging system that draws information from a number of sensors around the car. The system provides drivers with a wealth of data, presented in a way that can help improve their driving skills. Accessed via the central touchscreen, parameters such as G-forces, tyre forces, as well as vital temperatures and pressures are all relayed in clear, easy to interpret formats.

“Celebrating 25 years of success, the Civic Type R is a cult hero to many loyal customers, drivers' clubs and communities around Europe,” said Tom Gardner, Senior Vice President at Honda Motor Europe Ltd. “The latest generation builds on the success of its predecessors, injecting Honda's motorsport-derived technologies to deliver the most performance-focused Civic Type R experience in our history.”

Order books for the all-new Honda Civic Type R are open from 30 November 2022, with first deliveries expected in Europe from January.
