Hot hatches are the dream car to own for those who love vehicles that are both fun to drive and easy to live with. The 2024 Honda Civic Type R is one such hot hatch. It carries over all of the great features and performance upgrades that were introduced with the 2023 redesign, making it look quite attractive as an alternative to other hot hatches on the market, such as the Toyota GR Corolla or Volkswagen Golf R. This makes the four-door, race-inspired car quite the catch for those who want a high-performance hatch for daily driving, commuting, or weekend trips to the race track.

The 2024 Civic Type R maintains the features that were introduced for the outgoing model year, including all of the performance upgrades that Honda introduced, which included raising the horsepower by 3% and increasing the torque by approximately 5%. A wider track with wider tires was also part of the upgrade, which improved the overall handling and stability of the Civic Type R, making it better at gripping the asphalt and handling sharper turns. The improvements to performance were also matched with an improved infotainment suite, with a larger HD touchscreen and an onboard data logging app known as the Honda LogR, which can be accessed from the infotainment suite.

This high-performance hatchback is also available in five visually stunning colors to match the equally stunning on-road and on-track performance. The options include Boost Blue Pearl, Championship White, Crystal Black Pearl, Rallye Red, and Sonic Gray Pearl. You can also bolster the appeal of the Civic Type R with visual packages and protection packages to help personalize the look and performance of Honda's premium hot-hatch.

The 2024 Honda Civic Type R is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter VTEC four-cylinder with intercooling and highly optimized power-to-weight ratios for maximum performance. The VTEC four-cylinder manages 315 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque and is paired up with a six-speed manual transmission. You also have automatic rev-matching, which will synchronize speeds between the engine and the wheels to ensure that you don't burn out the clutch during downshifts. You also have a triple-outlet exhaust that works in conjunction with the active exhaust system to give you a perfect balance of performance and noise while on the road. This is achieved through the four drive modes, which consist of Comfort Mode, Sport Mode, Individual Mode, and R+ Mode.

Versatile Engineering

Thanks to the helical limited-slip differential and the drive-by-wire throttle system, you have a vehicle that you can use for a number of different driving disciplines and that is designed to accommodate various weather and road conditions. If you're keen on racing, the Civic Type-R is more than capable of doing so; just the same, if you need traction to get uphill or through rainy streets, hill start assist and an adaptive damper system are perfectly balanced to help you in those situations. This makes the Type R rather practical for a variety of scenarios as opposed to just being hot off the line and fast on the track.

However, if gunning it around wide bends and handling hairpin turns is your jam, you have a dual-axis MacPherson strut front suspension that tames torque steer and provides precise steering, as well as Brembo four-piston aluminum brake calipers for precision braking for when you need to stop on a dime. The 2024 Civic Type R also comes standard with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for maximum grip on paved roads. Even with this focus on high performance and maneuverability, the Honda Civic Type R doesn't abandon its role as a daily driver, giving you some commendable fuel economy even with its high-performance profile, getting an EPA-estimated 22 MPG in the city and 28 MPG on the highway.[b]

The design of the 2024 Honda Civic Type R takes the base Honda Civic Hatchback and gives it a much more menacing silhouette and a more sports-infused profile. From the unique color scheme to the more pronounced badging of the Honda logo, including exclusive red Type R badges, the visual presence of the Civic Type R is made quite known at first glance. You have the raised rear pedestal spoiler in the back, a rear diffuser that houses the triple exhaust outlet, a large open honeycomb grille for the front fascia, and a low-profile hood scoop.

You have either matte-black 10-spoke aluminum alloy wheels or available forged alloy wheels that are 5.29 lbs lighter than standard wheels. The forged wheels feature a Shark Gray metallic finish with a laser-etched Honda logo in the center. Both sets of wheels are of the 19-inch variety and are designed to maximize the speed and grip of the Civic Type R while on the road. Combined with the aerodynamic lines and exterior features, you have a sleek-looking, high-performance hot-hatch designed to give you just as much enjoyment looking at it as driving it.

Interior Features

Inside, you have a two-tone interior color scheme featuring a red and black suede-effect fabric that fits in with the sports-racing aesthetic that the Civic Type R embodies. This includes red carpeted floors with red double-stitched contour bucket seats. The car is designed for up to four people across the two rows, and you have adjustable seat belts, a black leather steering wheel with a red inner Honda logo, and a minimalist dashboard on the passenger side for maximum visibility, making it great for if you decide to go rally racing with a co-pilot feeding you turn instructions.

Typical convenience features such as cup holders, side-door storage, and dual-zone automatic climate control make for a very easy-to-use in-cabin experience. You also have other conveniences in the form of variable intermittent windshield wipers, power side mirrors with integrated LED turn indicators, a built-in security system with remote entry, push-button start, and active sound control. The Civic Type R is all about marrying the speed and performance of a track-ready Civic with the comfort and convenience of a road-ready Civic.

Technology is also a big part of what makes the 2024 Honda Civic Type R so appealing for so many different drivers. You have a lot of basic safety features in the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance tools, such as a Collision Mitigation Braking System and Road Departure Mitigation System, along with a Lane Keeping Assist System, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Adaptive Cruise Control. For lots of stop-and-go traffic in the city, you have a Driver Attention Monitor and Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor, along with Brake Assist and a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.

Features like the Honda LogR data logger also add a lot of convenience for those who want to track and record lap times, vehicle performance, and more. It gives you everything you need to improve how you perform on the track by analyzing your driving. Added to this is the standard inclusion of a nine-inch HD color touchscreen with media controls and smart shortcuts for easy access to your media files and playlists, which you can enjoy via a Bose Premium Sound System featuring 12 speakers and a subwoofer.

Infotainment Features

You also have integrated smartphone functionality for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Bluetooth HandsFreeLink technology for hands-free phone calls and text messaging. You get a digital driver information display that you can customize, as well as a radio data system, multiple USB ports, HondaLink compatibility for smartphone access, Wi-Fi connectivity, and Honda satellite-linked navigation with voice recognition support. This is all in addition to great features like SiriusXM satellite radio, HD Radio, and wireless phone charging, so you can stay connected on the go, listen to your favorite tunes while burning rubber on the race track, and keep your phone charged all while doing so. All of this makes the 2024 Honda Civic Type R the ultimate race-ready daily driver.
