New Honda Civic Type R to cost from £30,995
Having been unveiled at the Geneva Show in March, the hottest Civic will arrive in July, costing less than £300 a month on finance.
Unveiled at the Geneva Show in March, the new Type R will rival the likes of the new Volkswagen Golf R and Ford Focus RS. It’s powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine with 316bhp and, although it’s based on the latest Civic, the Type R has revised suspension to give sharper handling, as well as a selection of driving modes, which tailor the adaptive dampers, steering, gear shift and throttle response depending on the driver’s preference.
If you buy the car through Honda’s finance, the basic Type R costs £299 a month on a three-year 5.9% contract. Both versions are available to order now, and first deliveries are expected in July.
We’ll be driving the car in mid-June, so come back here then for a full review of what Honda claims will be ‘the most rewarding drive in the hot-hatch segment’.
