I’m Driving A Honda Civic Type R For Six Months: What Do You Want To Know?

Our encounters with the then-new Honda Civic Type R last year left us impressed, but one niggling doubt remained: what would it be like to live with long-term? After all, it’s a particularly extreme car, so there’s always the worry that over a longer period of time you’d grow to be annoyed with the hard suspension, the spectacularly sporty seats and the yobbish styling.

To find out, and to do all the things we wanted to do with the Type R last time around but didn’t have time for, the ladies and gents at Honda UK have lent us one for a whole six months. It’ll ‘replace’ the XE S in our long-term fleet, which CT Features Ed. Darren has taken for the car’s final few weeks before it heads back to Jaguar.

‘Our’ Type R is a Milano Red example fresh from Honda’s UK factory, and is the higher spec ‘GT’ model. That means you get extra bits like sat-nav, parking sensors, dual zone climate control and a range of safety warning systems which may or may not end up being irritating - we’ll let you know. As a reminder, it puts out 306bhp from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making 0-62mph possible in 5.7 seconds. Oh, and it’ll do 167mph at the top end…

Now, we’ll be doing all of the obvious things like pitting it against the new Ford Focus RS, sending it off on road trips (it’ll be going to our big Nurburgring meet within days) and giving you living with updates, but as ever, we want to know what you want to see.
