The hot hatch Civic Type R survived the latest update to the family: pyatidverka not have increased in power, but has acquired other advantages.
Update the appearance of the flagship has passed on the same lines as the restyling of other family members – “civic” Civic “heated” Civic Si, one, perhaps, the exception – “tuper” supplied another and a slightly larger grille to improve air supply to the power unit. In addition, hatch received an exclusive body shade called Boost Blue.
As for the chassis, here is one of the most significant changes in Honda I believe the improved braking system with composite discs and more resistant to abrasion pads, which also provide efficient deceleration at high speeds. In addition, “cupero” changed the characteristics of the shock absorbers to improve comfort in civil modes, drive and reconfigured the front part of the suspension to further improve handling.
The interior of the hatch appeared a new steering wheel, covered with leather, and changed the transmission lever with a shorter stroke switches, and the on-Board sound system has learned to change the sound depending on the selected mode of operation of the driving electronics. Finally, the revised and the contents of the package, in some markets, standard in the Civic Type R will include a range of active safety systems Honda Sensing.
The engine of the sports car remained the same. It’s a forced two-liter unit, developing 320 HP and 400 Nm of torque and is paired with a six-speed mechanics and is able to speed up the hatch to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds.
