The iconic model won The Most Popular Performance Car at the Honest John Awards in London. The award comes from the best experts of all: the website users. The model is famous for its turbocharged engine and great performance. It comes with great equipment such as 19-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, climate and cruise control, a parking camera and LED headlights. It is powered by a direct-injected turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine, with torque and performance figures unmatched in the front wheel drive hot hatch segment. Peak power output is 310 PS at 6,500 rpm, and peak torque is 400 Nm at 2,500 rpm – both higher than for any previous Honda Civic Type R model.
Editor at Honest John, Dan Harrison said: “One of the most highly anticipated cars of recent years among performance car enthusiasts, we rate the new Honda Civic Type R as one of the most engaging, enjoyable and exciting cars on sale. And honestjohn.co.uk users clearly agree with the Civic Type R proving popular enough to win Most Popular Performance Car for 2016. If you want a thrilling hot hatch, look no further.”
Head of cars at Honda UK, Phil Webb said: “The latest incarnation of Civic Type R continues to win awards but this award means more as it is simply down to the mass appeal of the car and the number of people searching for it on the Honest John website.”
