It’s always a thrill for a car enthusiast when a new set of tires gruesomely meets asphalt. The new 2020 Honda Civic Type R is here and its presence is boldly noticeable. The hatchback’s overly defined physicality and its outer look may appeal less to the eye for some car-loving fans but where the car arguably underwhelms in appearance, it profoundly makes up for in performance.

Engine, Transmission and performance

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R draws its impressive power from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 306 horsepower and effectively engaged by a magnanimous manual transmission. Even though the engine might not give you the most satisfying roar that’s relatively equal to the detailed work put into it, it will nevertheless will you to a longer stretch of tarmac.

The car boasts of a technically superior chassis to add to its elaborate structure while the braking system is an efficient system not to go unnoticed. With a grip able to pull 1.02 g’s and an emergency braking system with an emergency braking distance of 142 feet, this Honda model gives you a confident sense of control while you’re cruising on the road.

What’s New?

New brake rotors and pads have been installed in this model to counteract the effect of fade during hard braking. There have been significant suspension changes with the revisions of the front suspensions, which effectively enhances your steering feel, and re-tuned dampers for the other suspensions. An upgraded front grille adds to efficient engine cooling.

The interior of the Type R has as well seen a host of notable upgrades that add to its finesse. Just but to highlight a few; the driver gets upgraded assists while the shifter gets shorter throws. The steering wheel as well is wrapped in faux as opposed to the more traditional leather. The passenger space is defined by the unique Type R trademark styling complemented by the 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster which has an expected red theme marked by distinct appearance through each drive mode.


Given that Honda is yet to put a price-tag on this model, it is expected that it might hold a slightly higher price-tag as compared to its former. It is however going to be a significant challenge to make a tempting appeal owing to the worthy competition from models like the Subaru WRX DTI and the Veloster N.


The 2020 Honda Civic Type R, promises to bring an experience of its own. Attempting to combine class with sport, this model effectively offers a car enthusiast an experience in diverse motoring.
