2023 Civic Type R
EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
Civic performance has never looked better. The all-new Civic Type R features sleek, aerodynamic styling and a performance-focused cockpit, with enhanced visibility and a track-ready new Driver Information Interface.
Engine and Brake Cooling
A 48% larger grille opening than he previous Civic Type R and a wide, low hood vent help maximize engine cooling while minimizing airflow resistance. Optimized brake ducts help keep front brakes cooler through multiple laps of circuit driving.
Side underbody spoilers, front fender outlets, and new integrated rear fenders help guide airflow and maintain consistent air pressure around the wheels, for optimal stability in and out of turns.
New rear spoiler and diffuser designs, including die-cast aluminum wing stays, help increase downforce and control air resistance.
19-Inch Matte-Black Wheels
Lightweight and highly rigid, the aluminum alloy wheels feature a reverse rim design to enhance stability at high speeds.
In addition to the Type R symbol and red H-badge that signify the connection to our performance heritage, the new grill features gloss-black accents that coordinate with the rear spoiler and diffuser to carve out a unique identity.
The all-resin hatch is 20 percent lighter than a conventional steel hatch, and provides a wide opening for loading your gear into the cargo area.
The Pinnacle of Honda Factory Performance
Driven by our relentless determination to keep improving, we not only created the most powerful Civic ever, but also the most agile. And with its 4-mode drive system-including +R, Individual, Sport and Comfort modes-you can instantly tune it for the track or the street.
With a turbocharged and intercooled 2.0-liter VTEC engine that delivers 315 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, the all-new Civic Type R is not only more responsive than the previous generation, but also boasts a higher power-weight ratio.
6-Speed Manual Transmission
For a better balance while breaking into corners, the 6-speed manual transmission features rev-match control, which keeps engine and vehicle speeds in sync during downshifting. A new Civic Type R-exclusive shift link mechanism has shorter throws and makes shifitng even smoother.
Whether you’re ripping down a straightaway on the track or cruising through the city, the center-mounted triple-outlet exhaust’s Active Exhaust Valve strikes the perfect chord. Each mode of the 4-mode drive system features its own specially turned exhaust note.
Dual-Axis Front Suspension
Accelerate through corners with maximum confidence, thanks to the unique dual-axis MacPherson strut front suspension that helps minimize torque steer and deliver precise steering response.
Multi-Link Rear Suspension
With high-rigidity components, the rear suspension offers stability and support for a linear handling response.
Adaptive Damper System
As you steer through corners, the adaptive damper system helps control roll and pitch to give you a uniform, direct steering feel. With the 4-mode drive system, you can instantly tune the dampers for performance or comfort.
Brembo Front Brake Calipers
Renowned for their braking performance and lightweight construction, four-piston Brembo calipers compliment the two-piece front rotors for optimal stopping power.
A helical limited-slip differential helps minimize front-wheel slippage for more precise steering when accelerating and cornering.
Electric Power Steering
The dual-pinion, variable-ratio electric power steering offers confidience at high speeds and a precise feel at low speeds. And with the 4-mode drive system, you can instantly tune the steering to your drive, from +R mode at the track to Comfort mode on the highway.
Measuring wider than the previous-generation Civic Type R tires- the sport tires provide improved grip while cornering.
Every gram counts on the track, which is why virtually every millimeter of the Civic Type R features lightweight components, from the flywheel and crankshaft to the resin-made hatch, aluminum hood and sport seats.
