Re-entering with a stealthier look, the Honda Civic 2.0 Type R Sport Line (FL2020) features a new low-deck rear spoiler and head-turning gloss-black accents. While its improved power-to-weight ratio allows this fifth-generation hatchback to deliver an engaging and thrilling performance.
For its latest redesign, the commanding bulging bodykit of the Type R Sport Line tones down into a more reserved character with the low-level spoiler and 19-inch Shark Grey alloy wheels. It also features a larger black grille and a new symmetrical design below, incorporating smooth surfaces and sleek styling blades on the lower fog light surrounds.
The latest aerodynamic upgrades add more refinement to the already outstanding driving action of the Type R model. Its design boosts the DOHC VTEC TURBO engine under the hood, which boasts 320 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Mated to the 6-speed manual transmission, this hot hatch can accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 5.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 270 km/h.
Moving inside, the interior builds on a premium ambience, courtesy of the suede-effect red and black fabric trim for the dashboard and new deep bucket sports seats. The buttons and dials power the sports-focused interior on the centre console, while the Alcantara steering wheel optimizes grip and extends functionality through thumbpad controls.
Within the 7-inch touchscreen display supported by Honda CONNECT, you can make hands-free Bluetooth phone calls, enjoy DAB Digital Radio, and connect to your vehicle through Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Further in, it reveals a comfortable and spacious rear passenger room with fixed headrests and 60:40-split fold-down seats to extend boot capacity.
The Honda Civic uses a combination of radar and camera information, plus a host of high-tech sensors to warn and assist the driver in potentially dangerous scenarios. It also features LED headlights with DRLs to increase visibility and complete safety, day or night.
Blending unearthly performance with more discreet aerodynamic styling and refined ride, the new Honda Civic 2.0 Type R Sport Line (FL2020) embodies the Japanese brand’s relentless pursuit of progressive sports machines.
