Review Summary
Brutally quick, reasonably priced and surprisingly practical for such an out-and-out weapon, it's equally at home being driven to the shops or whipped around your local track at the weekend.

Review Summary
The Honda Civic Type R hot hatch pushes the boundaries of what's possible with a front-wheel-drive hatchback. It's ferociously fast and more practical than its rivals.

Review Summary
Fans of the brand’s red badge needn’t worry though – this one’s faster, more hardcore and more visually arresting than anything the firm has produced previously.

Review Summary
Honda Civic Type R is a 306bhp pocket rocket, but the looks are divisive.

Review Summary
Refreshingly different, and certainly the most flamboyant hot hatch on sale today. It can’t match the poise and feel of the Volkswagen Golf R, but the Civic Type R is a theatrical and extremely likeable alternative.

A mighty, mighty thing. Honda has gone hardcore, and how: a pure charger.

The Civic Type R is fast and furious, but demands some sacrifice - as it should. A cult hero in the making.

Review Summary
The looks are extreme, although possibly not to all tastes, but more importantly the dynamics are impressive, with rapid performance and sharp handling. The Type-R also manages to be perfectly usable in everyday driving and just as practical as the standard car.
