You'll have to excuse him - he drives a diesel so must be obsessed with MPG! If you want economy buy a 3 or 4 pot diesel and have that compromise, (or if needs dictate eg high mileage) hot hatches with 20mpg don't lend themselves to massive mileages unless you have deep pockets! Must say I'm disappointed with only 300bhp in this modern hot hatch era where even golfs have 350+

If you are buying a high performance hot hatch , why would you care about mpg ?
Why wouldn't you? It's a £30k car which most people will be getting on finance so the majority of buyers aren't the type who can wipe their arses on £50 notes.

I do a 65 mile round trip to work each day so fuel economy is pretty important.

I had a FN2 when they first came out and I had to fill up every 3 days.

I had heard that this one is going to have better economy but since they are not shouting about it I doubt that's the case.

I definitely can't wipe my arse with £50 notes , 5ers maybe but not 50's

A track car for the road pretty much assumes low mpg to me

It will be 45 mpg on paper and 25-30 mpg real world going by other hatches.

"....The Type R is available in five distinctive colours that give the purposeful new styling added visual impact. As well as Championship White – shared with successive generations of iconic Type R vehicles – buyers can choose from Crystal Black (pearlescent), Polished Metal (metallic), Brilliant Sporty Blue (metallic) and Milano Red."

Honda Civic Type-R Concept vs Production

Concept looks so much better.





So aside from the lights, what has changed? Well, the production car loses the concept’s cool blade-like LED daytime-running lights and the headlight cluster is also a lot more conventional looking; the LED blades are replaced with old-school projector lamps.

Totally agree, the production model is from a visual point of view, a BIG let down when compared to the concept in my opinion. I know production models never turn out looking like their concept counterparts, but for the asking price is there really anything on the concept that was wildly unrealistic?

Bye bye devil horn spoiler...

The rear wing has been reimagined from the Type R Concept. The structure of the airfoil – its angle, height and shape as well as its vertical end plates – have been carefully engineered to optimise downforce without causing a significant increase in drag at higher speeds.
...And yet it still looks like cheap halfords bolt-on tack.
