Honda Civic Type R

RM 330,002 TBC
C-Segment Hatchback | 2.0T

The LED tail lights also feature dynamic turn signals, with LEDs illuminating sequentially in the direction of turn so that’s an upgrade over the standard car’s.

There are plenty of options in the segment but one that comes the closest in terms of street cred as the FK8 would be the Megane R.S. 280 Cup. Not only does it come with rear-wheel steering technology, but it is also available with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for those who prefer two pedals instead of three.

One trait of the FK8 that took everyone by surprise was how comfortable and manageable the car is in the city. Its adaptive suspension irons out undulations better than a regular Civic. Yet, in maximum attack mode (+R Mode), the FK8 is like a razor-sharp katana for the skilled samurai.

Of course, there’s the usual Mugen scuff plates and other ornaments.

it’s time for honda civic type r 2019, as in its debut at the far-off geneva motor show, to reveal a more practical upgrade. being spied on the nurburgring, german, two mystery prototype cars based on the fk8 civic type r-white and yellow with test mule were caught circling around.

The matt finished aluminum wing has adjustable attack angle while the twin muffler exhaust replaces the original car’s triple muffler setup, but why would you want to do that?

the camouflaged rear wing is apparently larger compared with the current civic type r price 2019 and is reminiscent of the design being used by the si variant. two spoilers are also styled in a more distinct and prominence feature of the horns honda civic type r 2019 2019 (pictures credit: motor1 website)honda civic type r apart from a minor visual update of air intakes and headlights, few apparent changes can be seen from the front fascia of both prototypes. still, there’s more we can expect under the bone since their roofs are covered by the concealing foil. honda civic type r the fk8 civic type r is powered by a k20c1 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 320 ps and 400 nm of torque (our malaysian-market cars get 10 ps less), driving the front wheels via the sole choice of a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox and a helical limited-slip differential. thus equipped, the pre-facelift fk8 civic type r clocked a nurburgring lap time of 7 minutes 43.8 seconds, or 6.83 seconds quicker than the previous fk2 civic type r.

For the money, you’ll get a 2.0-litre four-cylinder DOHC VTEC Turbo paired to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission to drive the front wheels.

not too long ago it was also the fastest fwd around the nürburgring until the renault megane r.s. and lynk & co 03 unseated the fk8 r price . still, bragging rights when you’re out with your mates.

parked outside m-tec’s office is this mugen tuned honda civic type r 2020. however unlike the previous fd2 generation mugen rr, this fk8 generation mugen fettled civic type r is just a dressed up job.

The Civic Type R’s original exhaust is probably one of the best in any car. It’s quiet when cruising but ferocious when you are pushing. Instead of relying on complex electronically controlled valves, Honda uses a purely mechanical setup that employs clever manipulation of air pressure to achieve the same. So why would anyone want to replace that piece of mechanical art?

manufactured at honda’s swindon plant in the uk, the all-new type r is not cheap. excise duties and taxes applied; the fk8 retails at r price (otr without insurance) – a hefty premium over its rivals which hover closer to the rm 200,000 mark.

What’s less of a concern to the enthusiast is the lack of parking sensors and reversing camera.

Another very worthy alternative is the Volkswagen Golf R. With it's lightning 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system, you can exploit its performance more confidently even in slippery conditions. The only downside is that the Golf R is not as agile as the front-wheel driven FK8.

The Honda FK8 Civic Type R is believed to inherit the current look and power output with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 320 PS and 400 Nm of torque.

by the way, the correct way to pronounce mugen is ‘moo-gant’ and not ‘miu-gen.’ mugen means limitless in japanese, ‘moo’ as in a moose, and ‘gant’ as in gantry, so ‘moo-gant.’ honda civic type r 2020 in fact, the wrong way in which the mugen name is pronounced is quite annoying to mugen associates.

Inside, there’s a Mugen full bucket race seat (seat rail set included). The gear knob can be upgraded with either a carbon fibre item or a leather wrapped unit. Mugen also offers a quick shifter kit.

including the car but minus the not for sale rear wing and exhaust, the car you see here will set you back 6.482 million yen, or about rm 249,000. that’s still a lot cheaper than the standard honda civic type r 2019 ’s price in malaysia, which is rm 330,002.

Today, Mugen is no longer in F1, having vacated the spot to make way for Honda’s re-entry into the sport. Instead, it participates in Super GT and Japanese Super Formula Championship (formerly Formula Nippon).

Buyers who were expecting the FK8 to offer the raw and visceral engagement of the FD2R that was officially available to the local market a decade ago will be disappointed. Gone is the much-loved feeling of “VTEC kicking in” and steering feedback, while exceptional, is not as unfiltered as the Type-R of old.

the r price 2019 (codename fk8 honda civic type r 2019 ) is the hottest and most exciting civic money can buy. other than the civic hatchback shell and cabin features, the type r is nothing you’re your honda civic type r . it is a proper hot hatch for the enthusiast to rip apart racetracks and a comfortable hatchback for the family – we’ll get to that later.

We recently paid visit to famed Honda tuner Mugen’s headquarters in Asaka city in Japan. Behind the walls of this nondescript building bearing the subtle ‘M-Tec’ signboard - the name of Mugen’s holding company - was where many legendary F1 engines of the glorious naturally aspirated V10 era were built.

But frankly, what you need is just the Styling Set (237,600 Yen or RM 9,100) and 20-inch aluminum wheels (807,840 Yen or RM 31,000).

you can blame our country’s 80 percent excise duty and 30 percent import duty (for 1,996 cc engines) for that, as the r price is imported from the united kingdom (japan no longer make civics). the regular honda civic sedan is locally-assembled in pegoh, melaka, so those get taxed lower.   r price in malaysia, mugen parts are distributed by jc racing. honda malaysia also sells mugen accessories, but only for selected models.

The engine and transmission remains untouched, so it still makes the same 310 PS and 400 Nm from a 2.0-litre turbocharged and direct injected transverse four cylinders, driving the front wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission, of course.

honda malaysia only offers one variant of the fk8 and all cars sold through its official distributors are painted in honda civic type r 2020 2020 the fk8 holds the title of the fastest front-wheel-drive production car athonda civic type r – estoril, portugal; silverstone, uk; spa-francorchamps, belgium; magny-cours gp, france and hungaroring gp, hungary.

This demo car by Mugen has been given the full set of Mugen accessories and everything you see here can be ordered from Mugen’s parts catalogue. The only exceptions are the rear wing and twin exhaust – both are still under development.
