When Honda presented the production version of the current Civic Type R in 2017, the experts were amazed. All elements of the concept car were adopted with almost no changes, and the design polarized immediately. Above all, the large rear wing is still either a dream or a hate object. Many people, especially older people, are still a thorn in their side, and maybe also a reason not to buy this great vehicle, but instead to put a more understated competitor from Hyundai or VW in the garage to get in not polarize the neighborhood so much. However, there are also many critical voices from the professional community regarding the design, as journalists have already mocked the look of the current Type R and claimed that it would look like a craft booth. With the new Civic Type R Sport Line, Honda now wants to change this a bit, and defuses the Type R in design without watering down its sporty character.
Design remains without being chubby.
From the front, the new tamer Type R Sport Line cannot be recognized as such, since it has the same aggressive front section, which with air intakes and an air scoop indicates very clearly which direction it is going, and also the wide wheel arches May call own that make the Type R so distinctive. Only the most blatant stylistic element, which the Honda designers have given to the production model of the Civic Type R, does not apply to this new edition, namely the argumentative rear wing, the many potential interested parties who are looking for a sporty compact car with which one can do a lot on the highway Having fun was an eyesore. Now a small spoiler lip adorns the five-door hatchback, which is already very sporty even without optical tuning. In addition, dark gray 19-inch alloy wheels have been introduced into the new Sport Line of the Type R, which harmonize optically with the available gray paint finish
An absolute piece of cream works under the hood.
In the new Honda Civic Type R Sport Line, the well-known 2-liter VTEC turbo petrol engine with 310 hp and 400 Nm of maximum torque also does its job, which helps the compact, now less visually unruly, to perform like a sports car. In just 5,8 seconds, the Civic Type R, equipped with a 6-speed handset with Active Rev Match, catapults to country road speed 100, and the propulsion only ends at an incredible 272 km / h. Thus, the Japanese leaves all its competitors behind on the highway, as these are electronically limited at 250 km / h. This should cheer the sport-oriented customers, because those who buy such a car also want to take advantage of the full performance of this car.
sporty flair in the cabin
At the end... With the new Civic Type R Sport Line, Honda has hit the nerve of the time by simply reducing the most riotous elements of the well-known Type R to put on the wheels a sporty but relatively discreet-looking compact sports car that appeals to a much broader target group as the conventional Type R, which with its extreme rear wing simply polarizes too much to get large quantities. Dates and prices for the new Type R Sport Line are not yet known, but may already be announced at the Geneva Motor Show.
