2020 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition

Introduced alongside the ‘daily friendly’ Honda Civic Type R Sport Line is the track-focused Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition, which like its name, will only be offered in limited numbers.

The CTR Sport Line is meant to be a more comfortable Type R for those who plan to drive one on a daily basis. On the other hand, this CTR Limited Edition strips out all the ‘unnecessary’ items to elevate that raw driving experience.

On the outside, it can be ordered with a new ‘Sunlight Yellow’ paintwork complete with contrasting gloss black roof, wing mirrors and bonnet vent. It now rolls on a set of 20-inch forged lightweight BBS alloy wheels wrapped in sticky Michelin Cup 2 rubbers.

Inside, the infotainment screen, air-conditioning, soundproofing materials were removed for a total weight savings of 47 kg compared to a standard Type R. Although we find it odd that Honda still retained the Honda Sensing suite of ADAS.

Under the hood, the KC20C 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine remains untouched. Peak output remains at 320 PS and 400 Nm while the 0 to 100 km/h sprint time is achieved in 5.7 seconds, which is also unchanged from a standard CTR.

Only 100 units of the Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will be made for Europe and pricing announcement will be announced closer to its market launch in mid-2020.
