A global high-performance icon admired by driving enthusiasts around the world, Type R is the pinnacle of Honda factory performance, and the all-new 2023 model continues that legacy. Building on 25 years of ultimate hot hatch performance, Type R has been engineered to deliver a thrilling performance and driving experience to date.

This vehicle officially completes the new generation Civic family in Australia, with the Civic VTi LX being introduced into the market in late 2021, followed by the Civic e:HEV LX and now the all-new model.
