Honda’s new Civic Type R will land on Australian shores in February 2023.

Honda Australia has opened the order books for its hotly-anticipated 2023 Civic Type R hot hatch, confirming its February 2023 arrival and $72,600 drive-away price.

This makes the new-generation Civic Type R $25,400 pricier than the standard Civic VTi-LX that it shares a platform with, while also priced close to the Volkswagen Golf R ($65,990 before on-road costs) and Renault Megane RS Trophy ($62,300).

For reference, the previous-generation Civic Type R landed in Australia in 2017 with a $50,990 before on-road costs pricetag, rising to $54,990 with a MY2020 update and topping out at $70,000 drive-away for the Limited Edition swansong.

With a new-generation model however, power and torque outputs are bumped up to 235kW/420Nm from its 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine – an improvement of 7kW/20Nm from its predecessor.

Drive is once again sent exclusively to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox with an automatic rev-matching function.

Aiding performance is a triple outlet active exhaust which, like in the old car, will adjust valves at certain RPMs to increase aural output.

Wearing 19-inch wheels as standard shod in 265/30 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, Honda’s new Civic Type R also features a number of aerodynamic tweaks.

Four driving modes are also on offer – Comfort, Sport, +R and Individual – which will tweak steering, suspension, engine and exhaust settings.

Wearing 19-inch wheels as standard shod in 265/30 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, Honda’s new Civic Type R also features a number of aerodynamic tweaks like a larger front bumper, massive rear wing and wider fenders to help it boogie around a racetrack even faster.

Standard equipment includes front sports bucket seats, suede-like seat trim, auto-folding side mirrors, a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, acoustic windscreen, and interior ambient lighting.
