2019 Honda Civic Type-R

For Honda, racing has always been the pinnacle of automotive art. Hence the Civic Type R: an eye-catching car for the road that just happens to hold the record lap time for a front-wheel drive car on the world-famous Nürburgring. From the striking red suede-effect fabric front sport seats, to the bold rear wing spoiler, to the red-accented piano black 20" aluminum-alloy wheels, there's no hiding the racing pedigree of the Type R.

Racing Heritage

When you've conquered some of the world's most renowned racetracks with six consecutive Formula One Constructor's Championships, you begin to search for new challenges. This was the case for Honda's engineers, and the genesis for Type R.

Record-breaking. Legend-making.

The Civic Type R wasn't just tested on the legendary Nürburgring - it bested it with a remarkable lap time of 7 minutes and 43.8 seconds, setting a new record for front-wheel-drive vehicles.

A legend reborn.

Every new achievement is the starting point for the next. This philosophy lead the Civic Type R to surpass our previous Nürburgring lap record set by the 2015 Civic Type R.

The badge of racing honour.

To Soichiro Honda, racing was the pinnacle of automotive art. Hence the Type R: a badge representing the pursuit of a special breed of car, with racing performance as its starting point.


From the aggressive lines and sleek angles to the available exclusive Championship White paint, the Civic Type R looks fast and drives faster. Indulge every sense at a glance.

20" aluminum-alloy wheels.

In piano black with red accents, the 20" aluminum-alloy wheels grab as much attention as they do asphalt.

Triple centre exhausts.

Triple centre exhausts capture the spirit of the racetrack and control the exhaust tone, while chrome finishing proves that raw power doesn't have to come at the cost of refinement.

Aluminum hood.

The Civic Type R combats weight with an aluminum hood, lowering overall weight to help free up precious performance. A sleek yet striking air intake helps to cool the high-performance engine within.

Type R badging.

The long and proud racing lineage of Honda flows through every curve and crevice of the Civic Type R, including its unique red Honda logo badging.

Skirt package.

The Civic Type R has always been shaped by the modern racetrack. And this tradition continues with a skirt package consisting of front, side and rear spoilers with a crisp red, racing-inspired styling line.

Rear wing spoiler.

A swooping, aggressive rear wing spoiler does more than turn heads. It is designed to help keep the Civic Type R grounded by generating down force for enhanced handling and control.


Lightweight Bucket Front Seats in red and black suede-effect fabric can help keep you in place during hard cornering while still being comfortable enough for daily drives. Race-inspired Sport Pedals add to an overall track-ready style while also providing the necessary grip for your feet anytime a quick heel-and-toe is needed. Then there's the thick, Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel with flat-bottom gives you the feeling and grip you need to tackle the toughest turns on any track.

When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Civic from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.


The Civic helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.


The Civic features childproof rear door locks, as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle's seat belt system.


To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.


Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.


The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.


The road changes quickly, be ready with available Honda LaneWatch™ blind spot display As you signal right or press the indicator button at the end, it's designed to show a live feed on your Display Audio screen of your right blind spot from a camera mounted under your passenger-side mirror.


The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth-paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you're on the road.


The cabin of the Civic contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensors, which are designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
