Sleek, fast and hot, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R was unleashed at the Australian Grand Prix in March. Expected to be in Australian showrooms by October, why not get a finance pre-approval with 1800approved immediately and place your order for this snappy new vehicle now. Whilst exact figures are not known at this stage, a recommended retail price (including onroad costs) of somewhere in the $50 000 range is anticipated. This places the vehicle firmly and competitively in the domain of the Volkswagen Golf R (approx $53k) and the Ford Focus RS (approx. $51k).
In terms of spec, it is going to be very highly specced. Obviously… with the competitive set of vehicles in its price and market bracket, it is going to have to be priced very competitively as well.
The new Civic Type R will be powered by a 2.0-litre VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine which produces 235kW and 400Nm. The powerplant is paired exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox. No automatic version will be available.
Some versions in different international markets of the Civic Type R come with an extra GT badge for denoting a more richly equipped version of the five-door hatch. This is inline with Honda Australia's comments that this vehicle is being pitched at the higher end of this competitive vehicle marketplace.
If that translates directly in the Australian market, that means the cars here are more-than-likely to come equipped with sat-nav, eight-speaker audio, dual-zone climate control, alloy pedals, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, red ambient interior lighting and safety add-ons including blind spot and front collision warning.
The new Honda Civic Type R forms an integral part of Honda's boutique-vehicle led renaissance joining the new-model NSX supercar as a genuine options for enthusiast drivers.
