The latest Honda Civic promises to address some of the previous model's shortcomings. It lacks some of the visual drama of the previous model, but the latest edition offers higher comfort levels, lower emissions and improved fuel economy. It also has one of the cleverest and largest luggage areas in its class.
The Honda Civic Type R has a very committed and faithful fan base in the UK, with over 35,000 examples of the previous generation finding owners. Enjoying sharp handling, a high revving engine and aggressive styling, Civic Type R owners also require a practical, well-made hatchback that provides excellent everyday transport. The new model features all of these traits but has improved looks, a spaceship-inspired interior even better handling.
