Tangerang – Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) today unveiled the all-new Civic Type R at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2017, which is being held in Tangerang.  This marks the exciting debut of the Honda Civic Type R in the Indonesian market.

A legendary name for Honda’s sports models, the “Type R” made its debut in 1992 and is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017. For more than two decades, the “Type R,” inspired by racing cars, has offered excellent performance for Honda’s model lineup. Honda’s development concept for the “Type R” always has been to minimize weight, maximize power, and make the vehicle responsive with dynamic stability and perfect brake perfomance. The “Type R” series has been developed to deliver the most satisfying driving experience both on the road and on the race track.
 
Sharing the same fundamentals as the 10th-generation Honda Civic Sedan and Hatchback, the new Civic Type R received the “Best Hot Hatch” award in the Auto Express New Car Awards 2017, as well as the “Car of The Year 2017: Best Reader Award” from WhatCar? magazine in the United Kingdom.
 
The Civic Type R also claims the postion of being the world’s fastest front-wheel-drive production car at Germany's legendary Nürburgring, with a record time of 7 minutes 43.80 seconds.
 
 
With its sporty exterior design, the Civic Type R is enhanced by the muscular styling of the body. Reflecting Honda’s dynamic character, it comes with full LED Headlights and LED Fog Lights, 20-inch Aluminum Alloy Wheels, and Triple Exhaust with Finisher.
 
Powered by a 2.0 liter VTEC TUBRO engine, the Civic Type R delivers maximum power of 310 PS at 6,500 rpm and maximal torque of 400 Nm at 2,500 to 4,500 rpm. True to its sporty character, the Civic Type R is equipped with a responsive 6-speed manual transmission that is supported with three driving modes, which are Comfort, Sport, and +R.
 
Shinji Aoyama, Chief Officer, Regional Operations (Asia & Oceania), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and President & CEO, Asian Honda Motor Co., Ltd., said, “The introduction of the Civic Type R for the very first time in Indonesia further emphasizes our commitment to bringing the best of Honda products to Indonesia, from region-specific models to global models. Following the launch of the Civic Sedan last year and the Civic Hatchback this year, the Civic Type R will expand the Civic lineup to meet various lifestyles and the needs of Indonesian customers and emphasize Honda’s DNA in sportiness.”
 
Takehiro Watanabe, the President Director of HPM, said, “Many of Honda’s technologies are from racing experience, which feed back to our products in the form of a Fun-to-Drive Character. The Civic Type R is a true sports car with great performance, and recently set a new lap time record for a front-wheel-drive car at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany. The Civic Type R is the best choice for drivers who are ‘Born to Race’.”
 
The Civic Type R is available in four colors: Rallye Red, Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic, Championship White, and Sonic Gray Pearl, for IDR 995,000,000*. Crystal Black Pearl and Polished Metal Metallic colors will be available in 2018.
