Pricing Revealed For Full 2020 Honda Type R Line-Up
Honda UK has now confirmed their on the road pricing for the highly anticipated expanded Civic Type R family.
As the winner of the ‘Hot Hatch’ prize (for the third consecutive year) at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2020, it’s no surprise the upcoming Type R is expected to be incredibly popular too.
Set to reach our showrooms over the next few weeks, the entry level model will cost around £32,820, both the GT and the Sportline around an additional £2,000 and the range topping Limited Edition Civic Type R around £39,995.
All models offer a revised air intake system, improved cooling, two-piece floating disc brakes for increased performance, improved suspension geometry and bushings for better ride compliance, and a few small cosmetic upgrades to the interior and exterior.
The Civic Type R GT will come with some added features and systems to set it apart from the standard entry model. These include Blind Spot Information with Cross Traffic Monitor, Dual Zone Climate Control, Auto Dimming rear view mirror, Honda CONNECT with Garmin Navigation, Wireless Charging, high power audio, and LED front fog lights.
For those who want the performance of a Civic Type R but in a more unassuming shell, the new Civic Type R Sport Line provides you with a subtler look. The exterior offers a low-level rear spoiler, all-black interior, 19-inch wheels with a larger profile tyre, and no pin-strip around the lower flanks of the car.
At the other end of the scale is the Limited Edition Honda Civic Type R, which is aimed at those who want the most extreme version of a Type R.
There will only be 100 of the Limited Edition Type Rs on the roads in Europe, with just 20 of those here in the UK. You can see the Limited Edition Honda Civic Type R in action on the iconic Suzuka Circuit, here.
The Limited Edition Civic Type R features lightweight 20-inch BBS forged alloy wheels, unique ‘Sunlight Yellow’ paint, and a 47kg weight saving over the standard version.
The interior of all the upcoming Civic Type R models features upgraded materials and improved touch points. With a new Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, a counterweighted teardrop gear knob and physical controls for the infotainment and climate systems, the new Type R’s come with premium quality throughout.
Head of Automobile at Honda UK, Rebecca Stead, commented: ‘As with the previous generation, we are fully expecting a huge demand for the Civic Type R.
‘The expanded family now caters to a wider demographic of enthusiasts and customer deliveries are expected to start from the end of September.
‘We have already had supremely strong interest off the back of the unveil in February – and this is before media and our customers have even taken a test drive.’
