. At Review Centre we have thousands of reviews of cars including other Honda makes and models, both new and used, like the Honda CRX, Honda Accord and the Honda Jazz.
Over its five year reign the Honda Civic Type-R has gathered momentum as a leading player for the fast car brigade. Put simply, its one of the best Hot Hatches ever made and especially the more recent version. Tens of thousands of these superb hatchbacks have been sold in the UK and they transformed the reputation of the Civic from a reliable runabout into a sleek and sexy urban warrior.
The Type R is still a practical vehicle though with plenty of leg room and ample storage in its boot. It just handles like a Grand Prix champion. The Type Rs impressive power is a result of Hondas VTEC advanced engine technology. To be precise its 2.0-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine.
The Honda Type R
was also notable as the first Civic produced in England by Honda for export to Japan.
