The heart of the this Civic Type R is its engine, whose vocals are pure touring car howl - hard-edged and intoxicating. As in the previous Type R, there's the familiar VTEC step in power delivery, but Honda's engineers have worked hard to make the highly tuned 2.0-litre four-cylinder more useable. The Civic feels fast due to the stunning throttle response, snappy shift and short gearing. These factors should also make it a tiring car to drive, but although it pulls 3,400rpm at 70mph, the smooth engine doesn't drone when cruising. The handling can only be summed up as- sublime. The steering is perfectly weighed and the chassis is incredibly communicative.
The honed controls all work in harmony, and no rival holds a line in corners as tenaciously or has such fabulous traction. The Civic is addictive. The Civic Type-R's hard-edged predecessor had a cult following - over 35,000 were sold here, more than the rest of Europe combined. The brief was that thenew car had to be easier to live with, retaining the uncompromising character, but with added comfort. That's a tall order, but if any company can pull it off, it's Honda. That's why rawfined is Honda's latest buzzword!Itgoes without saying that the Japanese company has done it. The Type-R competes in the hot hatch sector alongside the Ford Focus ST, VW Golf GTI, MINI Cooper S, Renaultsport Megane and Seat Leon Cupra; as with every other rival, it channels its power through a six-speed gearbox to the front wheels.
