Celebrated for its outstanding driving dynamics and unparalleled performance for price point, the Civic Type R emerged as the champion in a fiercely competitive field.

Renowned for its exhilarating driving experience, the Honda Civic Type R captivates enthusiasts with its exceptional handling, precision engineering, and cutting-edge technology. The Civic Type R sets a new standard for usable performance cars on the road today.

"We are thrilled and honoured to receive this recognition from the UK Car of the Year Awards," said Rebecca Adamson, Head of Automobile at Honda UK.

Tom Sharpe, a member of the UKCotY judging panel, said: “The most powerful Civic Type R is also the fastest, but not at the expense of fun and drivability. The excellent snickety gearbox is an absolute joy and the tractability of the two-litre turbocharged engine addictive. What a car!”

While Mark Nichol, another UKCotY judge, summed up Honda’s Civic Type R as: “One of the most outright fun cars ever made. The sort of thing that makes every drive feel like an event – and every driver feel like a pro.”
