We are very excited at Donnelly Group Honda about the arrival of the new Honda Civic Type R. This radical new high-performance hot hatch incarnation of the hugely popular and successful Honda Civic is expected to take the motor industry by storm.
The Type R is available to order now from Donnelly Group. After five years in development, Honda have finally built the latest car to bear the infamous ‘Type R’ badge. Expect white knuckles – it’s already claimed the title as the world's fastest front-wheel drive production car around the Nurburgring.
The interior of the New Honda Civic Type R offers a high quality environment with a real sporty focus. Set to rival the VW Golf R and the Ford Focus RS, the Type R will bring a level of sophistication to the finish and quality of materials used.
Designed to be a true hot hatch, the Type R features more curves and creases than the standard model. It also boasts quad exhaust pipes, 20-inch alloy wheels and an oversized rear wing for a real high-performance boost and a visual impact fitting for a sporty vehicle. Industry experts have compared it to a WTCC racer, so you can expect plenty of athletic styling. Integrated LED brake lights ensure that the Type R is always seen, as well as functioning in an energy efficient way.
The current traditionally high-revving VTEC engine will be replaced in this sports performance edition. Honda is targeting an output in excess of 276bhp for the new Civic Type R, likely to be delivered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. It is still expected to offer around 40mpg with a 0-60mph acceleration time of less than six seconds. Honda will also offer a range of different drivetrains to cater for those who want a pure power machine, as well as those who would like a car they can drive every day. The thrilling new Civic Type R is now available to test drive at Donnelly Honda in Ballymena, Belfast, Dungannon and Eglinton. Prices start from £29,995 with the Type R GT starting from £32,295.
