All-new Honda Civic Type R to start from £31k

Set to hit showrooms in July, Honda’s new Civic Type R will start from £30,995 with the GT version costing £2k extra.

PCP pricing is in line with the current car, says Honda, with repayments starting at £299 a month on a three year 5.9% contract. 

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the 2017 Civic Type R hot-hatch shares the same fundamentals as the new Civic hatchback but has been engineered to deliver high-performance – both on the road and on the race track. 

The 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO of the previous generation Civic Type R has been tweaked to produce 320 PS with peak torque of 400 Nm, while the six-speed manual transmission gets a new rev match control system.

Phil Webb, Head of Cars at Honda UK, commented: “As with the previous generation, we are fully expecting a huge demand for the Civic Type R. The order bank is already open and we are experiencing strong interest off the back of the launch at the Geneva Motor Show in March – and this is before our customers have even taken a test drive.”
