Get Honda’s world’s fastest FWD production car now!

HONDA Malaysia has announced that the all-new Civic Type R will be the most powerful Honda model ever to be introduced in the Honda Malaysia model line-up.

The record-breaking all-new Civic Type R has claimed the title of world’s fastest front-wheel-drive (FWD) production car with a new benchmark lap time record of 7 minutes 43.80 seconds at the Nurburgring Circuit in Germany, early April this year.

“The Type R is Honda’s iconic racing and sports model whose name and reputation is almost cult-like. Making history for the past 25 years since its first introduction in 1992, the characteristic and development concept of the Type R has always been light-weight, dynamic performance and mechanically simple. The 2017 all-new Civic Type R adopts the same concept optimising advance technology to the current era, enabling it to set a new record for a FWD production car.

“The most significant improvement of this Civic Type R is enhanced aerodynamics that gives greater performance and excellent stability, allowing this model to achieve much quicker lap time compared to previous-generation (European market) Type R. It delivers the best package in its class, providing powerful performance both on the road and on race track, yet highly adaptable to our daily driving demands.

“The hot hatch Honda has a body that defines racing perfection. With a low and wide stance, the air curtain at the front bumper, side sill flick up and wing cross section of the rear wing gives excellent high speed dynamic performance. It was developed with the most ambitious design of Civic Hatchback platform with high rigidity body frame and an increase of 38% in torsional stiffness compared to previous generation (European market) Type R. The all-new Civic Type R is an ultimate representation of the racing spirit of Honda that is embodied in Honda’s DNA.

“The all-new Civic Type R is equipped with 2.0-litre VTEC turbocharged engine that offers high output and higher performance. Providing 305.8hp and a maximum torque of 400Nm, the all-new Civic Type R provides powerful performance and unmatchable driving experience. The high performance engine is mated with six-speed manual transmission that delivers exhilarating fun and engaging driver experience. Honda Research & Development (R&D) has developed the manual transmission, enabling precise shift for the drivers.

“The Type R comes with three-way driving modes – Comfort, Sport and +R) which allow drivers to set their preferred driving mode to experience different dynamic performance in different driving environment, be it on the road or on track. The driving modes control the adaptive damper system, drive-by-wire throttle, electronic power steering, vehicle stability assist, traction and brake system. Each driving mode provides a balance of the ride and handling for different experiences when the driver switches mode. Furthermore, all three modes are adaptive and suitable for daily driving, yet ever ready to go on the track.

“Honda R&D also developed a three-way exhaust system to provide sports-like feel with an acceleration sound to fulfill the driver's aspiration. At low to medium speed, it produces a powerful exhaust sound, while at high rotation range it reduces unpleasant muffled sounds and creates a refined experience for the drivers.

“With the improvement of cornering performance in mind, the all-new Civic Type R’s 20-inch aluminium alloy wheels was designed for aggressive and high speed performance. Despite its powerful performance, the all-new Civic Type R it comes with highly responsive and durable braking system. It is well-fitted with high performance Brembo brakes to achieve superior braking performance. A cooling duct at the front bumper opening introduces fresh air, enabling efficient air cooling and greatly improving braking performance at high speed."
