Honda Civic Type R

Auto Express - - News - Jonathan Burn News edi­tor

THE new Type R’s looks will di­vide opin­ion, but dig into the de­tails and it seems Honda has fi­nally nailed the hot hatch for­mula.

Im­me­di­ately the old nig­gles have been rec­ti­fied: the seat­ing po­si­tion is lower, the in­te­rior is re­vamped and a com­fort driv­ing mode should make the Civic eas­ier to live with – in the­ory. It has 316bhp, a six-speed man­ual box and is de­signed to “de­liver the most re­ward­ing drive” in the hot hatch class. That’s what these cars are all about.
