179 Logan rd Woolloongabba, Brisbane
Created to perfectly capture the sensation of being behind the wheel of a finely-tuned race car, the Civic Type R is armed with a raucous, rev-happy engine that delivers heart-racing performance.
Built for maximum performance
As the revs rise on the Civic Type R, you’ll understand why this car has legions of fans. The engine’s smooth surge of power creates a driving experience like nothing else on the road. One test drive and you’ll be hooked too.
Tight racing suspension
The MacPherson strut up front on the Civic Type R features high castor settings. This tight suspension really involves the driver, communicating how the car is responding to the road while also reducing vibrations. For the rear, a torsion beam design provides sharp steering response and cornering rigidity.
A high revving 2.0 litre DOHC i-VTEC engine
The Civic Type R's powerful 2.0 litre engine's double overhead camshafts (DOHC) set in motion a total of 16 valves with i-VTEC variable timing and control. The result is optimised performance for top-end output and low- and mid-range flexibility.
From every angle, the Civic Type R says 'bring it on'
With just one glance at its bold, genuinely original styling, you can tell this is a truly awesome car. Sitting low to the ground, with a black mesh grille setting the tone for its aggressive lines, the Civic Type R is clearly cut from very cool cloth.
The Civic Type R cuts through the air with poise, efficiency and balance. Its artfully and ergonomically designed grille and bonnet reach up in one fluid arch to the windscreen and roof. It's a very smart look.
Designed with adrenaline and logic
Prepare to feel your heart race. When you get behind the wheel of the Civic Type R and push the red start button, the experience is more fighter pilot than morning commuter. It's something you'll savour every time you drive.
Racing-red sports seats
The Type R's front seats feature lateral bolsters for a strong embrace. They're specially constructed from vibration-absorbing materials. The superior lumbar support and finely stitched Alcantara® material feel great too.
Surprising cabin and boot space
This performance vehicle is great for road trips with friends and kids. The centrally-mounted fuel tank opens up the interior space, so everyone's comfortable in the cabin and there's 415 litres of cargo space in the boot. When you want to pack in bulky cargo, like a bicycle or board, the 60:40 split rear seat folds completely into the footwell, giving you 1282 litres of storage capacity.
Powerful safety too
The satisfaction that comes from owning a car like the Civic Type R comes from every aspect of its performance. That’s why we devote so much attention to safety features we hope you’ll never need. Stability and traction control, six airbags, ABS brakes and more. They’re all standard equipment on the Civic Type R.
Standard rear parking sensors
To help get you in and out of tight spots, the Civic Type R gives you the added convenience and security of rear parking sensors, with an acoustic warning when objects are in close proximity.
Advanced G-Force Control (G-CON)
With Honda’s G-Force Control technology, the Civic Type R’s body is designed to help absorb the impact of a collision and protect the passengers inside.
The dream: to create the ultimate race-inspired driving experience
Since it was first applied to a high-performance motorcycle, the Red 'H' Badge has distinguished Honda's purest race-bred engineering. The philosophy behind Type R is not about building the biggest or even the fastest engine. It’s about creating a car that epitomises an exhilarating, precision-engineered driving experience.
