More Honda Civic Type R Units On the Way


Honda Cars Philippines announces the availability of a second batch of Civic Type R as a response to the overwhelming market acceptance and persistent demand for Honda’s performance vehicle offering in the Philippines.

The Type R serves as the highest performance version of one of Honda’s pillar models, the Civic. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo engine that produces 310 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Together with a 6-speed manual transmission and bespoke chassis set-up, the Civic Type R delivers an exhilarating and gratifying drive on both road and track.

The reservation books at all 37 authorized Honda Car Dealerships open on Friday, May 11 with customer deliveries expected to start by October. Honda says that 100 units is set to arrive in the country. Together with the signature Championship White and Rallye Red colors, the second batch will introduce Polished Metal Metallic. Pricing will be announced closer to launch, likely by June or July.

    1. The mazda 3 is better than this. It is the most luxurious car ever and owners are said to be sophisticated who likes fun to drive cars... It has the best engine and transmission, even better than the ford focus, honda civic RS or Type R... the only downside they say is the tight interior...

    1. I used to say that and i probably will say its not a pretty car im also not a fan of the civic because i grew up with Accords. But this civic is a performer with practicality in mind. You can send your kids to school, have fun on the track and buy some groceries with it. Its not for everybody yeah but the engineering on that civic is top notch undeniably. At 3M+ though there are plenty of choices.

    2. Tough choices but hey its a welcome addition for the 3M bracket sports car.

  4. Saw some re-sellers trying to fish 4M+ for a few used units. They probably didn't know Honda will bring in a fresh batch. lmfao

  5. Good thing i didn't gave in to temptation during the first batch reservation and instead invested the money in a business. Really wanted to buy to experience it and sell after a few months at a slightly higher price only unlike other resellers ridiculous price which is around 3.8-4.1m.

    Elderly advice saved my ass unlike those first batch resellers, they can't sell their units now at their bloated price. Ouch, one big ouch.

  6. Yes i ordered one already a red unit is allocated for me. And its on its way. I went for an ecoboost not much to brag.

    1. Can you update us regarding your ownership experience once you get hold of your unit? Interesting to know directly from a legit owner. Thanks!

    2. Strange that you somehow became interested in a Ford vehicle when you said - "The sportiness and performance to bring you quickly to the casa, for repairs. LOL" in the other article about the fiesta ecoboost.

      Delete
    3. Yes since all Ford vehicles available locally has various issues like the reported transmission failures, electronic gremlins and those mechanical issues except for the Everest. Of all Ford vehicles available locally, only the Everest has a decent review so far.

      We shall see what's up with the Mustang directly from a legit owner.

      Delete
    4. Only the everest? Are you sure? What about the focus models 2016 above? I haven't heard any issues with this unit within the Philippines or even from different countries. The mustang seems to be pretty reliable too, and so are the MT fiesta models.

      Delete
    5. Yes im sure. Ford was recently fined AUD $10M by the Australian government for various transmission issues of the Fiesta, Focus and Ecosport.

      Delete
    6. Sure ka ba talaga? I own a Ford Focus 1.5L Ecoboost WITH a CONVENTIONAL 6 speed AT and surprise surprise... NO ISSUES! The DCT issue is well known among Ford owners. People who bought those cars didn't do their research very well.

      Delete
    7. Yes i am 100% sure of it, it's been printed in the automotive news. Top Gear PH even published it in one of their articles. I can even give you links of it. Sad to say, Sir Uly might delete it.

      Yes i agree, even those DCT's in the Accent has over heating issues.

    8. Di naman ma delete siguro, paki post na lang para sa kaalaman din ng iba. Might as well try.

    9. I actually posted it here already but was deleted, i'll post it here again as soon as i can.

    10. My WRX will wreck your trashy favorite-of-DOM camry v6, you dilawan civic RS-loving, mazda-hating, fake news spreading b*****d.

    11. Your WRX will suffer ringland failure faster before you get to even trash mine.

      Somebody please call Mental Hospital, someone's exhibiting violent psychotic symptoms here. LOL!

    12. Yeah, someone please detain that low IQ, civic-loving DOM-esque dilawan b*****d. He's everyhwere, parang si Richard Joash Tan lang.

    13. ^
      So? What the hell does this have to do with Mustang and other cars without DCT?

      Delete
    14. ^ So apparently, the link i posted got deleted the second time around.

      Anyways, that's the very reason im curious about the ownership experience of the soon to be Mustang owner guy. We shall see if his Mustang turns out to be a good buy.

      As with regards to non-dct Ford vehicles, well, they have various issues as well. The Ranger has transmission, electrical and mechanical issues locally and abroad. The Explorer has that dangerous CO2 issues, rack n pinion, and mechanical issues as well.

    15. Because if you’re smart enough you’ll use this site as basis:

      We actually broke the news before TGP did.

    16. Oh, i missed this article. Im gonna browse over Sir Uly, this may have a better content than the TGP article and that Aussie news site.

    17. That's the problem. This civic-lovin' low IQ dilawan ain't smart enough. LOL.

  7. Saw a white one recently, it looks like a regular Civic w/bodykits. Weird that you will pay 3.3m which is more than double the amount of a Civic RS. Come on, a bigger engine, aesthetics, interior and exhaust upgrades, aren't worth 1.8m. You'll just spend money on taxes because its sourced from the UK. 500k is more than enough to modify a stock Civic RS.

    1. The problem with modifying is the uncertainty of the reliability of the modifications. Leave it to the manufacturers.

    2. It's like saying an M3 is just a souped up 3-series. Even if they look similar, engineering involved is very different so can't compare.

      I think the Type R is one of the more practical performance car for 3M. Just like an STI or MX5 if budget is around 2M+ naman.
