Civic Type R is a frontrunner

Civic Type R is a frontrunnerThe Type R’s legacy has already seen more than 350 drivers put money down on a car they have yet to drive. Relative to its forebears, this turbocharged car is faster, more focused and more family oriented, from the 414-litre cargo capacity to the fact it doesn’t need to be revved to the red-line to get the best out of it.

I’ve joked as long and loudly as anyone that a replacement for the last-available fourth-gen Civic Type R – Australia skipped the fifth-genner – would never see the cold, hard neon light inside a local Honda dealership. But, under the warm spring sunshine in Tassie I quick realise the curse of the wait has been a blessing. There’s not been idle hands in the car’s long drawn out development.

It could also stand to be a bit more overt with its exhaust noise. A bi-modal system, for example, that emits pops, crackles and bangs on throttle overrun would suit it perfectly.

In all, the Type R is an absolute barrel of monkeys to punt at speed, and it doesn’t punish you when you go to drive home again.
