Honda Philippines launches the New Honda Civic Type R

Honda’s ultimate racing machine just got even better!

Published

on

Not everyone buys cars for the same reason. And not all cars are created equal. Some cars are for transport, while some are also for going from point A to point B, but with a whole lotta fun! For racing-bred folks, a VTEC kicking in would definitely put-up smiles.

On the July 27, 2021, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. proudly announced the launch of the New Honda Civic Type R in the country. It boasts a refreshed sporty look that is still quintessentially Civic.

What’s new?

The New Honda Civic Type R features an updated symmetrical design while retaining some of characteristics that gave its predecessor a distinctive look. It now comes equipped with a new front grille design with a thinner grille beam that allows a larger air intake.

Honda knew that if you are going to drive around a Civic Type R, you’d want to squeeze every bit of potential out of it. So, they made improvements on the suspension and brake systems for a more responsive handling. An updated radiator core helps decrease temperature during high-demand driving situations.

Another awesome new feature is the Active Sound Control (ASC), that enhances the cabin sound with engine noise through the audio systems when driving in Sport and +R modes. You’re in a performance car, loud noise is a must (winks).

Driver-assistive functions

Along with the standard safety features such as airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System and more, the New Civic Type R is installed with Honda SENSING for a safer mobility. A monocular camera works in conjunction with wave millimeter radar to monitor and assess the road conditions ahead. Honda’s driver-assistive features include: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

The 2.0 liter VTEC TURBO engine supplies a maximum power output of 310 PS and 400 Nm at peak of torque. Its 6-speed manual transmission is equipped with a ‘rev match control’ system that enables the vehicle to sustain maximum power while changing gears.

Pricing and availability

The New Civic Type R will be available in three colors: Championship White, Racing Blue and Sonic Gray with a price tag of Php 3,210,000.00.
