Honda Civic Gt Type R Vtec

Honda Civic 2.0 VTEC Turbo Type R GT 5dr Few performance cars attract the recognition that 'Type R' does, It's hugely powerful and with the outlandish looks to match. Honda revealed the Civic Type R at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and while obviously still a Civic in terms of design, the model had been built from the ground upwards to be a performance-orientated hot hatch. The model is powered by a 316bhp 2.0-litre VTEC petrol engine, while the model has a keen focus on aero—as shown through its bold bodykit—with the new performance Civic being tailored towards high-speed driving. Its imposing body kit, huge rear wing, red brake callipers and 20-inch alloy wheels make it look supremely aggressive on the road. You’ll also find a low front splitter, red side sills and red trim on the alloys on the performance-focused exterior, as well as distinctive triple-exit exhausts. The interior is equally as sporty, coming with red sports seats as standard, red interior trim and a metal gearshifter. The new interior also looks modern with its seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity. Few cars are as capable in the corners as this Civic is, with pin-point sharp handling and effortless levels of grip—this meaning that fast cornering is accurate and done without unnecessary drama. The high-revving 2.0-litre engine is also superb. It feels every inch as practical as the cavernous standard Civic, with an excellent amount of interior storage areas and room in the rear for adults to sit in comfort. Its sloping roofline does mean that taller adults may be short of headroom, though. The Type R also has a good-sized boot, with 420 litres of luggage space to play with, or an impressive 1,580 litres if you fold the rear seats down. It’s not quite as practical as the standard Civic’s boot and features a rather odd shape. It’s by no means impractical, but it might be something to consider if you regularly carry bulky luggage.
