Performance; racing car feel
For enthusiasts only; pitiful security
A driver’s delight, the Type-R offers race-bred performance from one of Honda’s advanced twin-cam VTEC engines. Handling and road holding is right on the mark, too, making it an exhilarating drive. Although the huge rear wing is a bit brutal, the Type-R has all the right credentials; a Formula One heritage, V-TEC engine, all-round quality and reliable engineering.
