Civic Type R returns in October
Honda’s automobile business unit in the Philippines is making available once again the Civic Type R this year.
With the Civic being one of Honda’s pillar models, the Type R reprises its role as the highest performance vehicle in the Honda stable.
Powered by a 2.0L VTEC Turbo engine that produces a maximum power output of 310 PS and peak torque of 400 Nm combined with its 6-speed manual transmission and bespoke chassis set-up, the Civic Type R aims to deliver an exhilarating and gratifying drive both on the track and on the road.
The Civic Type R has become one of the most desired performance vehicles in the country. Upon its official introduction and availability, the iconic Civic Type R received multiple recognitions from local award-giving bodies in the country namely C! Magazine’s Best Driver’s Car 2017, Car Awards Group Inc.’s 2017 Best Sports Compact Car and Top Gear Philippines’ Car of the Year 2017.
With the successful launch of the Civic Type R last year, Honda said that another one hundred units will arrive in the Philippines. Initial deliveries are targeted in October 2018. Together with the signature Championship White and Rallye Red color lineup, Honda will also introduce a new Polished Metal Metallic color for 2018.
