Review: 2023 Honda Civic Type R

The newest Honda Civic Type R is something else. Around the racetrack, it’s guaranteed to have more talent than most drivers out there, thereby cementing itself as a venerable track day hero. It’s so good (no disclaimer needed), that there’s little need to touch any of the FL5’s track credentials anymore. Instead, let’s focus on just how easy (or hard) it is to live with on a daily basis.

The Curious Case Of The Honda Civic Type R's Key Fob

Don’t mind my misshapen thumb. Focus your attention instead on the Civic Type R’s rather peculiar key design. The Honda Smart Card Key, as it’s officially known, is probably one of the most overlooked features on the all-new Type R FL5. And after trying out the hot hatch for about a week, frankly, more Hondas should get this as standard.

First Drive: 2023 Honda Civic Type R

I made a mistake as I was doing my third lap around the Clark International Speedway. For the first two, I concentrated on following the proper racing line (indicated by a series of cones) and minding my shift points. This time, however, as I passed the 150-meter brake marker board at the start-finish straight, I glanced down at my speedometer: 160 km/h. Holy crap. My balls were literally in my throat, as I scrubbed off some off that speed into turn one. With just a nudge of the steering wheel (no sawing necessary), the Honda Civic Type R swung in without drama; not a hint of tire screech nor hesitation. This, I thought, is what real stuff is made of.

2023 Honda Civic RS: A Comeback Worth Waiting For

The thing about driving a Honda—any Honda, for that matter—is that there is likely some form of history or experience that the driver can draw from. After all, the brand has been in the Philippines for over 30 years. With that number alone, it can be safely said that at least 2 generations of Filipinos have had the pleasure of growing up with a Honda vehicle, whether it be the founding classics or a modern revamp.
