2023 Honda Civic Type R Offers 325 HP For £46,995 In The UK


Honda has announced full pricing details and specifications for the 2023 Civic Type R in the UK and the wider European market.

Mechanically, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R is the same in Europe as it is in other markets. As such, it is driven by a revised 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engine that features fewer turbo blades but ones with an optimized shape and diameter to reduce inertia. Additionally, the car rocks a straight exhaust system that increases airflow by 13 percent, an upgraded radiator, a revised air intake, and tweaked ignition timing control and tuning of the variable timing control.

The engine is good for 325 hp and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque between 2,200 rpm and 4,000 rpm. This gives it slightly more grunt than the U.S.-spec model that has to make do with “only” 315 hp. Honda says the new Civic Type R launches to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds and can sprint all the way through to 275 km/h (171 mph).

Customers in the UK will be able to pick up the keys to the new Civic Type R from £46,995 ($56,757) or through Honda Financial Services for £499 ($602) per month over 36 months with an 8.9 percent interest rate.

Honda UK opened order books for the new Civic Type R on November 30 but has made no mention of whether it is available with any options. What we do know is that some of the standard features include 19-inch matte black alloy wheels wrapped in bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires as well as Honda LogR, an integrated data-logging system. This setup draws information from various sensors around the car and displays parameters such as G-forces, tire forces and temperatures, and other important information through the infotainment display.

In the broader European market, a plethora of options has been confirmed. These include a Carbon Pack, an Illumination Pack Red, Body Cover, Red Illuminated Door Sill Trims, Elegance Floor Mats, Carbon Wing Spoiler, Carbon Center Console Panel, Carbon Door Sill Trims, Red Door Lining Illuminations, Red Front Foot and Under Seat Lights, Red Cup Holder and Console Illumination, and an Illuminated Type R Pattern Projector.
