It's finally official, the new Civic Type R has rolled onto the wharf and is safely on Australian soil. The Civic Type R is expected to find its way to dealers in time to officially go on sale in July.
You can read our initial article on the Honda Civic Type R including power and performance specs by clicking on the link. We can confirm that the Type R will feature dual-zone climate control air-conditioning, automatic rain-sensing windscreen wipers, auto on-off headlights and a CD-player with MP3 and WMA capabilities. A leather bound steering wheel and sports seats are included in the Type R experience.
On the safety front the Civic Type R includes Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), front, side and curtain airbags along with the usual Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) and emergency brake assist.
As previously reported, the Type R is manufactured in the UK at Honda's manufacturing plant in Sunderland. Demand for the Civic Type R is such that making some available for the Australian market was touch-and-go but it's now here and for that we are grateful.
