Designed to Perform: Superior Aerodynamics for all-new Honda Civic Type R

    2.0 litre direct injection VTEC TURBO engine and aerodynamic performance deliver class-best top speed of 270km/h (167mph)*
    Unique vents, grilles, spoilers and skirts contribute to enhanced downforce and minimised drag
    All-new Honda Civic Type R in Championship White will make global debut at 2015 Geneva Motor Show

 

The all-new Honda Civic Type R – which will make its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show – will feature a host of eye-catching design enhancements that have been heavily influenced by extensive aerodynamic development and testing, both on computer and in the wind tunnel. The result is a car with exceptional high speed stability and high levels of downforce.

 

The superior aerodynamic performance helps make the most of the Civic Type R’s 2.0 litre direct injection VTEC TURBO engine, enabling the car to achieve a top speed of 270km/h (167mph)*, unrivalled amongst its front wheel-drive competitors.

A new, almost completely flat underside aids airflow under the vehicle and combines with a rear diffuser to optimise downforce – effectively ‘sucking’ the car onto the road.  A bespoke rear wing gives the car enhanced visual presence and delivers powerful additional downforce, thanks notably to the structure of its airfoil section.

 

A wide front splitter and deep side skirts also manage airflow and reduce lift, while the front bumper has been shaped specifically to inhibit air turbulence around the front wheels, cutting drag and enhancing high-speed stability.

 

 

To help the driver manage the Type R’s prodigious power, the car is equipped with a high performance Brembo brake package for the front wheels, developed specifically for the car. At the front, four-piston calipers apply braking force to 350 mm drilled discs. New 19-inch alloy wheels, unique to the Type R, complement the visual changes, filling the wheel arches and accommodating the larger brakes.

Heat management was another major focus for the design team, influencing several prominent external design modifications. Enlarged upper and lower grilles in the front bumper, vents above the wheels on the front quarter panels and vents at the trailing edges of the front wheel arches combine to provide greater cooling and ventilation for the high-output engine.

 

The Civic Type R will be unveiled at Geneva Motor Show in Championship White – a colour shared with successive generations of iconic Type R vehicles.

 

Honda can be found at stand 4250 in Hall 4 at the 85th Geneva Motor Show (3 - 15 March).

ALL-NEW HONDA HR-V COMBINES DYNAMIC DESIGN WITH CLASS-LEADING SPACE

    Characterful coupé looks with the tough stance of an SUV
    Class-leading and versatile interior space with refined sophistication
    Honda Connect infotainment system available as standard on grades above entry level (Sport and Executive)
    Advanced Driver Assist Systems  available  on grades above entry level (Sport and Executive)

An all-new Honda HR-V arrives in Europe in summer 2015, delivering a unique proposition to the crossover  segment: dynamic styling, the versatility of an MPV, sophisticated-yet-fun driving dynamics and fuel-efficient performance. It is part of the updated range of Honda vehicles that demonstrates the brand’s pioneering approach to technological innovation.

 

The HR-V portrays a characterful poise, with the distinctive, boldly sculpted lines of a coupé merged with the tough, solid stance of a robust SUV.

Inside, the HR-V offers occupants class-leading space and – thanks to Honda’s innovative Magic Seat ® system – high levels of versatility. High quality soft-touch materials and sophisticated design define the HR-V’s interior, where Honda’s designers married expansive spaciousness with the feel of a sporty, enveloping cockpit.

 

The new Honda Connect app-based in-car infotainment system is operated through a seven-inch touchscreen display in the centre of the dash, and offers access to internet browsing, real-time news, traffic and weather and music streaming services.

 

The new HR-V is available at launch with a choice of highly responsive and efficient 120 PS 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel or 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engines, both part of Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series.

 

The Advanced Driver Assist System package, which employs a camera and mid-range radar, incorporates a comprehensive suite of advanced safety technologies, some of which are new to the crossover segment.

 

The all-new Honda HR-V will go on sale across Europe in the summer of 2015.

Characterful, bold lines of a coupé with the tough, solid stance of an SUV

 

The all-new HR-V blends the dynamic personality of a coupé with the tough, solid stance of an SUV, creating a characterful look with emotional appeal.

 

Its body shape and a rear window line that tapers at the rear result in a dynamic and sporty side profile, complemented by ‘hidden’ rear door handles. A distinctive, sharply cut swage line along the bodyside helps to give the HR-V a purposeful, forward-leaning stance and a sense of movement and agility, even at standstill.

 

HR-V also evokes a reassuringly robust presence. Deeply sculpted lower body panels convey the toughness, solidity and sure-footedness of larger SUVs, a theme reinforced by the strong horizontal orientation of the front and rear bumpers.

 

While ensuring the HR-V boasts a distinctive and self-assured identity on the road, its designers also ensured that it bears a clear family lineage. For example, it shares with the new 2015 CR-V the bold ‘flowing wing design’ of the unified front grille and headlamps and the pointed taper of the rear side window line.

 

At the rear, the HR-V continues with the crisp styling theme. Sharp rear combination lights stretch inboard onto the wide tailgate, into which is cut a single boldly sculpted ‘flowing wing’.

Class-leading interior space with the versatility of an MPV

 

The all-new HR-V boasts class-leading interior space that is not only voluminous but also incredibly versatile, bringing the virtues of an MPV into the crossover segment for the first time.

 

The foundation of the HR-V’s spacious and versatile interior is Honda’s global B-segment platform which incorporates innovative packaging solutions. For example, a lower-profile fuel tank mounted under the front seats frees up the underfloor space beneath the rear seats, enabling the platform to accommodate Honda’s innovative Magic Seats ® system.

 

Each of the 60:40 split Magic Seats ® in the rear can adopt numerous configurations to maximise the versatility of the spacious interior. In ‘Utility’ mode, the rear seat back folds forward as the seat base lowers to create a long, flat floor. In ‘Tall’ mode, the rear seat base is locked in a vertical position to leave space from floor to ceiling. ‘Long’ mode sees front and rear passenger seat backs fold forward to a horizontal position.

 

Once seated, all occupants benefit from class-leading space with leg-, shoulder- and headroom in the front and rear that would more commonly be found in larger vehicle segments.

 

The boot, too, offers impressive space, with 453 litres* available with the rear seats in use, and 1026 litres* to the window line with the rear seats folded away. A wide tailgate opening and low loading height means the boot space is easily accessible as well as capacious.

Refined and sophisticated interior design with quality materials,  panoramic sunroof and advanced new infotainment system

 

For occupants, Honda’s designers sought to marry the conflicting themes of spaciousness, reassuring solidity, and the cockpit of a tight, sporty coupé.

 

The use of high quality soft-touch surfaces, subtly accented with brushed chrome highlights provide a premium ambience, while the dash design combines a solid feel with premium detailing, including a piano-black feature panel that emphasises the sense of sophistication.

 

Facing the driver is a three-dial instrument binnacle, the surround of each featuring ‘floating’ illumination rings to further the sense of quality. Honda’s ECO Assist function changes the backlight colour of the speedometer from white to green during efficient driving.

 

The Executive grade also offers owners a one-touch opening tilt and slide panoramic sunroof. A sliding sunshade that opens automatically with the roof and can be closed manually to block sunlight.

 

At the centre of the dash is a seven-inch Honda Connect touchscreen that is fitted as standard on grades above entry level (Sport and Executive) providing advanced connectivity and infotainment.  A five-inch screen is available on the Comfort grade.

Running Android 4.0.4 operating system, the screen employs the familiar intuitive ‘pinch, swipe and tap‘ functionality of a smartphone. Honda Connect gives fast and easy access to internet-based services including web browsing, real-time traffic, news and weather, social media, and internet music stations. Further apps can be installed from the purpose-designed Honda App Centre enabling owners to personalise their connected infotainment experience, and integrated Garmin Navigation is available.

 

The Honda Connect touchscreen also displays vehicle information – such as trip meter, fuel economy and journey time

 

In addition, the Honda Connect system syncs with smartphones and other multimedia devices through MirrorLink, WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI and USB.

 

 

Comprehensive suite of advanced safety features

 

As with all new Honda vehicles sold in Europe, the HR-V is fitted with a number of premium active and passive safety technologies.

Comprehensive active safety systems combine data from radar sensors and forward and rear facing cameras. Other than the entry-level model, all grades will be fitted with Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist System as standard. This suite of safety technologies includes Intelligent Speed Assist, City Brake Active Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition system, and High-beam Support System.

 

Honda’s City-Brake Active system will be fitted as standard on the HR-V.

 

In addition to a full suite of front and curtain airbags, Honda's proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure technology provides the foundation for excellent passive safety performance. A network of connected structural elements distributes crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle, reducing the forces transferred to the passenger compartment, enhancing occupant crash protection in frontal collisions. ACE also helps minimise the potential for under-ride or over-ride situations that can happen during head-on or offset frontal impacts with a larger or smaller vehicle.

 

 

 An engaging drive coupled with efficient performance

 

Available in Europe with front-wheel drive only, HR-V will be offered with choice of highly responsive and efficient 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol and 120 PS 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engines. Each is available with a refined and smooth six-speed manual transmission, and the 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol can also be married with a smooth CVT automatic.

 

Both engines are part of Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series, which are engineered to deliver responsiveness and high efficiency, and both are Euro 6 compliant.

 

An all-new 1.5 i-VTEC petrol engine generating 130PS and a 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine generating 120PS will be available in the HR-V. Both engines will be available with a manual transmission, and the new 1.5 litre petrol engine will also be available with a semi-automatic CVT transmission (with paddle-shift on some grades).

 

The HR-V has been deliberately engineered to deliver a saloon-like driving experience, achieved thanks to its low centre of gravity and its lightweight and highly-rigid body. This rigidity – in great part a result of 27% of the body structure being in high-strength steel – helps deliver reassuring solidity, which in turn leads to a high feeling of security when driving, as well as a lack of body roll. This also delivers exceptional linear driving behaviour, making the HR-V one of the most confidence-inspiring cars in the crossover segment to drive enthusiastically.

The HR-V brings class-leading aerodynamic performance to the crossover segment, benefitting not only fuel efficiency but also interior refinement through low wind noise intrusion. To minimise the intrusion of harsh road noise, HR-V employs a highly efficient acoustic insulation package. Sound absorption to the front and rear inner wheel arches, floor carpet and underfloor cover all contribute a refined and relaxing atmosphere in the cabin.

ALL-NEW HONDA JAZZ REDEFINES B-SEGMENT WITH ADDED SPACE, VERSATILITY, REFINEMENT AND TECHNOLOGY


    Third generation Jazz based on Honda’s global B-segment platform
    New 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine from Earth Dreams Technology series
    Extra interior space, made versatile with Magic Seats® system
    Bold, fresh exterior and refined cabin
    New Honda Connect infotainment system
    Advanced Driver Assist Systems enhance safety

 

Arriving in Europe in summer 2015, the third-generation Jazz features bold yet sophisticated exterior and interior design, with unrivalled interior space and versatility. Occupants will benefit from increased refinement and advanced safety and infotainment technologies, as well as a highly efficient and dynamic driving experience.

While the newcomer retains the classic Jazz silhouette, it exhibits distinctive contemporary styling including a powerful new face and strong lines. The use of Honda’s cleverly packaged new global B-segment chassis means that the latest Jazz is even bigger on the inside. The company’s Magic Seats ® system ensures the interior offers unmatched versatility as well as class-leading space, with a range of configurations for carrying cargo and passengers.

 

High-quality soft-touch materials and thoughtful interior design provide a sophisticated ambience. With a seven-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dash, Honda Connect is a new in-car infotainment system that offers internet browsing and access to real-time news, traffic and weather and numerous internet music stations.

 

The 2015 Jazz will be fitted with a new powerful and efficient 1.3 litre petrol engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series. A refined ride is allied to more responsive and engaging handling, thanks to a new, more rigid and lighter chassis and re-engineered suspension.

 

The Advanced Driver Assist System package, which employs a camera and mid-range radar, underpins a comprehensive suite of new advanced safety technologies that are being introduced across Honda’s new product line-up during 2015.

Remarkable interior space and versatility

Honda’s new B-segment platform – shared with the all-new HR-V – employs highly efficient packaging solutions. A lower-profile fuel tank mounted under the front seats frees up underfloor space beneath the rear seats, enabling the platform to accommodate Honda’s innovative Magic Seats® system.

 

Longer by 95mm on the outside and with a 30mm longer wheelbase, new Jazz is endowed with astonishing interior passenger space: leg, shoulder and headroom in the front and rear are unrivalled in the class. 

 

For load-lugging, new Jazz again trumps the competition with class-leading cargo space. Boot space has been increased to 354 litres (VDA)with the rear seats in use and 884 litres (VDA) with the rear seats down. Each of the 60:40 split Magic Seats® in the rear can adopt numerous configurations to maximise the versatility of the spacious interior.

 

In ‘Utility’ mode, the rear seat back folds forward as the seat base lowers to create a long, flat floor. In ‘Tall’ mode, the rear seat base is locked in a vertical position to leave space from floor to ceiling. ‘Long’ mode sees front and rear passenger seat backs fold forward to a horizontal position.

With a wide tailgate and a low load height, access to the boot is easy, while four tie-downs in the boot enable objects to be securely transported.

 

 

New chassis and dynamic set-up with powerful, efficient engine delivering refined driving characteristics

Thanks to its new global B-segment platform, new Jazz is lighter than its predecessor and benefits from greater rigidity.

 

Upgraded, lighter suspension components – MacPherson struts at the front and an H-type torsion beam at the rear – combine with the longer wheelbase to provide ride stability by naturally reducing pitching motions. New damper systems also improve ride quality for all occupants and reduce vibrations from the road into the cabin, and a new electric power-assisted steering system results in greater feedback for the driver.

 

New front suspension geometry provides more stable and composed handling, helping the response of the new Jazz feel more accurate, natural and agile through corners.

The new suspension also helps dampen road noise and vibration by reducing the intrusion of harsh body inputs for refined composure. Comprehensive soundproofing brings further improvements, notably reducing engine, road and wind noise. The dash area of the body received particular attention to reduce noise paths, while aerodynamic covers under the body reduce airflow noise while reducing aero drag.

 

The overall effect is that the new Jazz feels and sounds peerlessly sophisticated, with reassuringly composed and refined dynamics.

 

At launch, the Jazz will be available with the highly efficient, highly responsive 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series. Delivering 102 PS of power at 6,000 rpm, the new engine is mated to a six-speed manual (replacing the previous five-speed unit) or a semi-automatic CVT transmission.

 

 Bold, fresh exterior design; refined and sophisticated cabin, with an advanced new infotainment system

An all-new exterior design brings Jazz into line with the full range of new and refreshed Honda models launching in 2015.

A distinctive new face echoes the ‘solid wing’ theme across the grille and headlamps that is shared across the 2105 Honda family. The bold X-shape of the face rises – around the lower edge of the headlamps, over the bonnet, and along the roof line to the rear roof spoiler – and falls to the lower bumper skirt, to create a secure, planted look.

 

Twin bodyside cut-in swage lines rise from the front wheel arch to give a forward leaning, purposeful in-motion look. At the rear, the tailgate spoiler and near-vertical rear windscreen provide a strong aesthetic, while angular rear combination lamps accentuate the bold design.

 

Inside, the cabin gives all occupants a sense of airy spaciousness thanks to a large windscreen that meets the roof panel a long way rearward. This, along with the large front quarter windows provides excellent forward visibility and admits plenty of light into the cabin.

 

Quality materials within the cabin include high-grade, sophisticated black soft-touch dash and trim surfaces with premium detailing, contrasting upholstery materials and polished chrome trim accents.

 

Steering wheel-mounted controls provide easy access to commonly used functions and enable the driver to switch between various information views on the centre console screen – either a five-inch LCD multi-information display or seven-inch Honda Connect infotainment touchscreen, depending on model grade.

The intuitive Honda Connect interface employs smartphone-style ‘pinch, swipe and tap‘ functionality. Running the Android operating system, it provides fast and easy access to internet-based services including internet browsing, real-time traffic, news and weather, social media, and internet music stations. Further apps can be installed from the purpose-designed Honda App Centre, enabling owners to personalise their connected infotainment experience, and integrated Garmin Navigation is available.

 

The Honda Connect touchscreen also displays vehicle information – such as trip meter, fuel economy and journey time.

 

In addition, the Honda Connect system syncs with smartphones and other multimedia devices through MirrorLink, WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI and USB.

 

 

Comprehensive suite of advanced safety features


As with all new Honda vehicles sold in Europe, the Jazz is fitted with a number of premium active and passive safety technologies.

Available as an option on the entry-level model, and available as standard on all other grades, Honda’s suite of safety technologies known as the Advanced Driver Assist System includes Intelligent Speed Assist, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition system, and High-beam Support System.

 

Honda’s City-Brake Active system will be fitted as standard on the Jazz.

 

Passive safety in the 2015 Jazz starts with Honda's proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure technology that enhances occupant crash protection in frontal collisions. A network of connected structural elements distributes crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle, reducing the forces transferred to the passenger compartment. ACE™ also helps minimise the potential for under-ride or over-ride situations that can happen during head-on or offset frontal impacts with a larger or smaller vehicle.

2015 Honda Civic Type R


1. Introduction: All-new Honda Civic Type R is the most extreme and high-performing Type R ever built, setting new standards in Europe’s high-performance front-wheel drive hatchback segment

 

    Characterful, high-revving all-new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO engine

    Function dictates form – eye-catching styling enhancements optimise airflow to aid performance and stability

    Advanced new suspension systems ensure rewarding handling characteristics and maximise power transfer

    New +R mode increases the response of chassis and engine for enhanced driving thrills

    GT Pack provides a comprehensive suite of styling, convenience and safety features

    Tested to success, Civic Type R represents the next generation of hot hatch with class-leading performance

 

After a five year wait, 2015 sees the arrival of the world’s most keenly anticipated hot hatch, the Honda Civic Type R. Billed as a ‘race car for the road’, the all-new Honda Civic Type R is powered by the most extreme and high-performing Type R engine ever built, and will set new standards in the high-performance front-wheel drive hatchback segment.

 

Taking their direction from the Japanese word ‘Buttigiri’, meaning ‘to break on through and leave the rest behind’, Honda’s engineers sought to develop a Type R that would more than live up to this high expectation of the red badge. The new Civic Type R has been engineered to deliver a dynamic, class-leading performance whether on fast roads, winding roads or the circuit. At the same time it delivers the ease of use and practical packaging expected of a Civic.

 

A world-first application of Honda’s new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO engine, a sensuous sporting sound, aggressive function-led styling, and pioneering new chassis technologies combine to deliver one of the most immersive and rewarding driving experiences available in any sector. Civic Type R is equally at home delivering this experience on the road as it is on the track, at the push of a button.

 

The new 2015 Civic Type R signals the start of a new performance era for Honda, drawing on the brand’s racing DNA to deliver the peak of the Civic line-up.

Part of the wave of next-generation and all-new vehicles from Honda in 2015, the new Civic Type R demonstrates the brand’s pioneering approach to technological innovation which makes life better for its customers. Available only as a five-door, with two trim grades, it is set to catapult Honda back to the top of the two-wheel drive performance hatchback league when it goes on sale across Europe from July 2015.

 

2. Characterful, high-revving all-new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO engine with greater power, torque and response than any previous Honda Type R engine

 

    Direct-injected turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine
    Advanced technologies improve power, response and efficiency
    Cooling systems allow high output and sustained high speed performance
    Slick-shifting, six-speed manual transmission safeguards an intimate, rewarding connection with the driver
    Four-exit exhaust is tuned for noise as well as performance

 

At the heart of the new Civic Type R is an all-new, direct-injected turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine, which delivers power, 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 between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm – both higher than for any previous Honda Type R model.

 

As a visual reference to the inspiration behind the Type R brand, a bright red engine cover and aluminium intake pipe echo those of the successful Civic racing cars participating in the 2015 World Touring Car Championship.

 

Red-lining at 7,000 rpm, the engine – part of Honda’s next-generation Earth Dreams Technology series – features an advanced new turbocharging system which incorporates Honda’s legendary Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) and Dual-Variable Timing Control (VTC) technologies to boost low-end response while delivering sustained acceleration.

 

Combining a turbocharger with Honda’s VTEC and Dual-VTC technologies provides a number of benefits in output, efficiency and packaging. Dual-VTC allows a degree of valve timing overlap which is finely controlled across a broad rev range to improve responsiveness and efficiency. VTEC varies the degree of exhaust valve lift to reduce turbo lag through increased exhaust pressure at lower rpm while delivering a high output at higher rpm. As a result of the benefits these technologies bring, a mono scroll turbocharger can be used to produce a class-leading peak output, while maintaining response at lower engine speeds and a high-revving power delivery. In order to further improve responsiveness, the turbocharging system incorporates an electronic wastegate which offers a higher degree of freedom in induction pressure control over a conventional unit.

 

The mono scroll turbocharger combines with cast aluminium pistons, aluminium VTEC rocker arms, forged conrods and a lightweight crankshaft to minimise the overall weight, size and rotational mass of the engine.

 

High precision combustion technologies not only assist with improving engine output, but also lead to improvements in fuel efficiency and competitive emissions. At the core of these technologies is a direct injection system that prevents fuel sticking to the intake ports by injecting fuel directly into the cylinders and drawing only air through the ports, aided by Honda’s multipoint injection control. A high pressure (20MPa) injector is used to greatly increase fuel atomisation and is supported by an 85% improvement in flow rate and 45% increase in fuel pressure over a conventional fuel pump-based system.

 

Honda’s engineers worked exhaustively to ensure that once the fuel has been injected into the cylinder, strong tumble intake ports promote fuel mixture consistency within the cylinder. The shapes of the intake port and piston crowns were optimised through extensive Computer Aided Engineering modelling and analysis to ensure that they combine to generate a strong tumble flow. This optimises the fuel / air mixture and therefore the effectiveness of combustion. Idling Stop further enhances efficiency, and speedy ignition response assures the driver of rapid acceleration from standstill. The Idling Stop function is disabled in +R mode.

 

The new Civic Type R’s blistering performance is unmatched in the front-wheel drive hot hatch segment: the 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint is covered in just 5.7 seconds and top speed, where permitted, is a class-leading 270 km/h (167 mph). Despite its astonishing performance, the Civic Type R achieves low CO2 emissions of just 170 g/km, exceptional high speed fuel consumption and compliance with Euro 6b emissions regulations.

 

The new Civic Type R’s engine has a high compression ratio of 9.8 and is turbocharged, both of which make thermal management particularly important. As a result, the engineering team incorporated numerous cooling technologies, such as cylinder head and piston cooling, sodium-filled exhaust valves and a high-capacity air-to-air intercooler. The cylinder head has a two-piece water jacket, lowering exhaust gas temperature and effectively lowering the combustion chamber temperature, while each piston individually features a cooling channel to provide increased oil flow. Together, the cooling technologies ensure the engine always delivers a high output even under the high load, high speed driving conditions of a race circuit.

 

Whether setting lap times around race circuits, engaging the driver on a favourite country road or providing day-to-day comfort, an exceptional engine requires an exceptional transmission. A slick-shifting, six-speed manual transmission was chosen to safeguard an intimate, rewarding connection with the driver while making the most of the engine’s high output, strong torque and high revs.

 

The gear-change feel is designed to be the best in Type R history. Gear change speed relates directly to race circuit lap times, while gear change feel is fundamental to the joy of driving. The same 40mm shift stroke as the 2002 NSX-R contributes to an exceptionally quick shift time, but this would not be possible without at the same time reducing the force required to move the gear lever. A significant reduction in mechanical resistance has been achieved through a large capacity synchromesh, and vibration each time the clutch engages is supressed by a dual-mass flywheel. Through increasing the rigidity of each component part, shift control when shifting diagonally between second and third, fourth and fifth gears has been greatly enhanced.

 

Each of the six gear ratios has been optimised for performance and matches the engine’s output and torque curve. For example, the maximum speed of 270 km/h is achieved in sixth gear when peak power is reached at 6,500 rpm.

 

Final drive is through an exceptionally responsive helical limited slip differential. This type of differential aids strong cornering traction, even during hard cornering. This technology, when compared to a traditional differential, reduces the new Civic Type R’s lap time by five seconds per lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

 

In keeping with the focus of the new Civic Type R, an oil cooler specific to the gearbox provides a cooling performance capable of enduring consistent high load situations such as those encountered on the race circuit. The oil cooler is fitted to the lower part of the transmission and is fed cool air by the fin-shaped transmission case which is matched to wind-channelling vanes in the engine undercover. Despite the addition of an oil cooler, the use of a high-rigidity transmission case assists in making the new Civic Type R’s transmission the lightest in its class.

 

Making the purpose of the new Civic Type R clear from the first moment the engine is started, the four-exit exhaust is tuned for sound as well as performance. The system is able to handle a higher exhaust gas flow rate due to a straightened pipe with deleted silencer in the front section, while the exhaust sound is enhanced by the deletion of the silencer generally used to dampen noise. Instead, a resonator in the rear section maintains noise within certification levels and reduces only specifically selected frequency bands. The exhaust’s mounting bushes have also been re-tuned to allow the inclusion of a secondary noise element within the overall sound while ensuring the power of the exhaust sound increases in line with the torque of the engine.

 

3. Function dictates form – eye-catching styling enhancements optimise airflow to aid performance and stability

 

    Aerodynamic features ensure zero lift and minimum drag
    Effective heat management supports efficient cooling of engine and brakes
    Distinctive exterior styling and colours mark out the Type R
    Performance focus extends to interior design and features

 

The styling changes uniquely applied to the new Civic Type R give it an aggressive, purposeful stance, yet almost all have a functional purpose. The size of the holes in the front bumper grille, which serve air to the intercooler, are specifically shaped to minimise aerodynamic losses. The sleek and aerodynamically-efficient design reflects a car developed first and foremost to perform at speed. The focus on aerodynamics has ensured a zero lift coefficient and a minimum of drag which provides a class-leading overall aerodynamic performance.

 

The Civic Type R’s unique aerodynamic package utilises specific downforce-generating elements to create overall negative lift which is unusual in the industry and unique for this class in particular. The focus on airflow, not only around but also through the car, has ensured negative lift (or airflow pushing the car onto the road) at both axles combined with a minimum of drag. This is particularly noteworthy at the front of the car and allows high speed stability with a class-leading top speed of 270 km/h.

 

To achieve this, the fourth generation Civic Type R was subject to exhaustive aerodynamic analysis, testing and development. The development team tirelessly pursued its objectives through computer-based CFD modelling and wind tunnel testing at Honda’s dedicated motorsports facility in Sakura, Japan; home of Honda’s Formula One engine programme.

 

This development work was validated through extensive prototype testing both on the road and on track, including at the Suzuka Formula One circuit, the Nürburgring Nordschleife and at the company’s Takasu test facility.

 

A new, almost completely flat underside aids airflow under the vehicle and combines with a rear diffuser to optimise downforce – effectively ‘sucking’ the car onto the road. A wide front splitter and deep side skirts also manage airflow to generate downforce on the front axle and reduce lift, while the front bumper has been designed specifically to inhibit air turbulence around the front wheels, enhancing high-speed stability and further reducing lift forces.

 

The structure of the rear wing aerofoil – its angle, height and shape as well as its vertical end plates – have been carefully engineered to optimise downforce on the rear axle without causing a significant increase in drag at higher speeds. This helps improve road-holding abilities, particularly through high-speed corners.

 

Heat management was another major focus for the design team, influencing several prominent external design modifications. Enlarged upper and lower grilles in the front bumper allow a greater volume of cooling air into the engine bay. The airflow is channelled through the engine bay to outlet vents above the wheels on the front quarter panels and vents at the trailing edges of the widened front wheel arches to provide cooling and ventilation for the high-output engine while minimising the drag caused by the enlarged grilles.

 

The new Civic Type R’s front and rear wheel arches are widened to accommodate an increase in front and rear track. The integrated arch extensions are in aluminium, providing a 42% weight saving over a conventional steel panel.

 

The front spoilers and door spoilers wear a piano-black gloss finish to highlight the car’s wide and low appearance. At the rear of the car, a pair of dual-exhaust tailpipes emerge prominently at the flanks of the rear diffuser. Clearance between the tailpipe finishers and the piano-black gloss rear diffuser has been reduced to an absolute minimum. This imbues the car’s rear-view with an extra degree of aggressive tautness.

 

At the front, running along the lower edge of each combination headlamp cluster is an LED daytime running light. Its sharply ‘up-ticked’ shape, produced using two LED light sources and a light guide, highlights the headlamp’s shape and creates a more appealing and aggressive front mask. The rear combination lamps also feature distinctive LED light bars.

 

New lightweight, high rigidity 19-inch alloy wheels, unique to the new Civic Type R, complement the visual changes. They fill the enlarged wheel arches with 235/35 R19 tyres that were developed specially for the Type R in conjunction with Continental.

 

The new Civic Type R is available in five distinctive colours that give the purposeful new styling added impact. As well as Championship White – shared with successive generations of iconic Type R vehicles – buyers can choose from Crystal Black (pearlescent), Polished Metal (metallic), Brilliant Sporty Blue (metallic) and Milano Red.

 

Inside, a range of aesthetic and functional upgrades, designed exclusively for the new Type R, provide a cockpit that is not only suited to driving on a circuit, but also makes day-to-day driving feel sporty. The seats, steering wheel and gear stick are all unique to the Type R model and take into account driving position, visibility of key information and driver control requirements.

 

Exclusively designed high-backed sports seats, trimmed in suede-effect black and red fabric with red double stitching, fit the body perfectly while a modified seat frame provides driver and front-seat passenger with superlative support whether during day-to-day driving or harder cornering. An important factor in providing a suitable driving position for the new Civic Type R is the seat height. By reviewing the density and height of the urethane foam used in the seat, engineers were able to make the front seats 20% leaner, while maintaining comfort for day-to-day driving. This translated into a structurally low seat and enabled a hip point that sits 20 mm lower in the seat than that of the standard car. The floor was also lowered by 10 mm, meaning the overall hip point is fully 30 mm closer to the road than in the standard car.

 

A redesigned rear seat bench unique to the Type R, with revised frame and reduced material thickness, accommodates two passengers and offers a 60 / 40 split fold function and flat loading space when folded. The modifications result in a weight saving of 17% compared to the standard Civic five-door while retaining the same maximum load volume.

 

In light of the front seat’s low hip point, the steering wheel has been lowered to ensure clear visibility of the information displays. A flat-bottomed steering wheel preserves maximum knee room. The driver’s feeling of control has been enhanced by reducing the thickness of the steering wheel spokes, making the feel and the position of the grip feel more familiar. The red centre-position marker at the top of the steering wheel rim gives the driver a visible indicator of the steering angle when cornering.

 

Red double stitching on the black leather-clad steering wheel and black gear-lever gaiter matches those on the seats and the roof-lining is trimmed in black fabric, augmenting the focused ambience. As with previous Type R models, the gear stick is made from machined aluminium alloy.

 

The intelligent Multi Information Display (i-MID) includes display information specific to the Civic Type R. Additional information screens unique to Type R can be individually selected by the driver and include:

 

• G-meter and brake pressure / accelerator pedal position

• Boost pressure, water temperature, oil pressure and oil temperature

• Lap time

• Acceleration time (0-100 km/h or 0-60 mph)

• Acceleration time (0-100 m or 0-1/4 mile)

 

A rev indicator above the main tachometer provides the driver with visual information to aid optimum performance gear shifting. When engine revs increase, lights from both edges of the indicator converge to give the driver a visual reference on the optimum timing of the next gear shift without distracting any attention from the road. A gear shift display shows the currently selected gear and responds within 0.2 seconds of a gear change.

4. Advanced new suspension systems, unique to the new Civic Type R, ensure rewarding handling characteristics and maximise power transfer

 

    Four-wheel Adaptive Damper System developed specifically for the Type R
    Advanced Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension system enhances high speed stability, on-the-limit cornering and steering feel
    Revised rear suspension and steering system are retuned for Type R
    Bespoke brakes and tyres complete a compelling sporting package

 

A number of advanced new suspension systems, unique to the new Civic Type R, have been introduced to produce rewarding handling characteristics and to maximise power transfer to the road.

 

A new four-wheel Adaptive Damper System was developed specifically for the Type R model. It enables continuous independent control of each wheel to deliver exceptional road holding performance, limit wheel-load transfer during sharp acceleration and deceleration, and maintain a stable, flat ride. It also means that the ride is more comfortable and supple in everyday driving and cruising.

 

The Adaptive Damper System utilises multiple sensors to monitor the car’s status in milliseconds. In real-time, the current to the electromagnetic coils inside the dampers is adjusted, altering the oil flow channels and thereby controlling the damping force. Independent control of each wheel through a logic developed specifically for the suspension and tyres, improves contact with the road surface (including on uneven surfaces) and maintains high levels of traction at all speeds. Further, it ensures sharp handling and stability during cornering at higher speeds through limiting body roll, while in normal driving maintaining an exceptionally supple ride.

 

The Adaptive Damper System also limits wheel load transfer during acceleration (through the front of the car lifting) and deceleration (through the nose of the car diving) which secures greater traction during acceleration and maximises braking performance. This assists in achieving a stable, flat ride longitudinally (on pitching roads, for example) and latitudinally (in strong cross winds, for example).

 

An advanced Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension system enhances high speed stability, on-the-limit cornering and steering feel. As opposed to ADS, the Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension is a mechanical system featuring two supporting ‘kingpins’. Instead of an integrated knuckle-and-strut set-up of a conventional strut system, the knuckle and strut are separated, so that the knuckle receives steering input and the strut receives information from the road surface. An independent knuckle translates into a smaller centre offset, thanks to a reduced kingpin inclination, which helps reduce torque steer by 55% compared to the standard Civic’s suspension system. Also contributing significantly to the minimisation of torque steer are drive shafts which are precisely balanced for rigidity and a revised wheel offset.

 

The front suspension system is able to provide a larger caster angle which translates into excellent straight-line stability at high speeds. Meanwhile, finely tuned camber characteristics keep the tyres on the road when turning to increase the car’s cornering performance. In pursuit of increased rigidity and weight reduction, the lower arms and damper forks are made out of aluminium and the very high resistance compliance bushes also contribute to the car’s responsive handling.

 

Dual Pinion Electric Power Steering (EPS), developed from that fitted to the standard Civic, helps to deliver rapid yet linear steering response and abundant steering feel with increased power and torque. Pinion gears which transform the turning movements of the steering wheel into a straight movement are placed in two locations. This layout enables steering and tyre input to be transmitted to the driver without any negative influence from the power assistance, which operates exclusively through the second pinion gear. Furthermore, a steering angle feedback control logic has been developed which provides a solid feel when steering around the central position while still providing good response under cornering. An increase in the rigidity of the area around the rack gear bearing, the aluminium housing and the mounting helps further increase feel and response.

 

The Type R’s H-shaped torsion beam rear suspension enhances high speed stability, even in high speed corners, thanks to its contribution to maximising roll rigidity. Unlike that of the standard Civic, the Type R’s H-shaped torsion beam is made of crushed pipes rather than a solid block which improves rear roll rigidity by 177% and removes the need for a rear anti-roll bar, thus saving weight. Very high resistance trailing arm bushes also help to improve lateral rigidity.

An increase in body rigidity by 18% was achieved by optimising the bracket designs and application of adhesive instead of using additional structural steel material, this strategy saved 4.5 kilograms.

Agile Handling Assist is another advanced technology that further enhances the dynamic stability of the car, particularly when reacting to fast steering inputs or high cornering loads such as are experienced during emergency avoidance manoeuvres. Agile Handling Assist operates through the Vehicle Stability Assist system and applies a light braking force, imperceptible to the driver, to the inner wheels when the steering wheel is turned. The result is increased vehicle responsiveness and stability, and a more satisfying driving experience.

 

Unable to find a tyre that naturally suited the character and nature of the new Civic Type R, Honda’s engineers worked with Continental to create a bespoke tyre that delivers enhanced grip and cornering stability.

 

The car is also equipped with a high performance Brembo brake package developed specifically for the Civic Type R. At the front, four-piston calipers apply braking force to 350 mm discs – the largest ever to have been installed on a production Type R model – which are drilled to stabilise braking friction between the disc and pad at high temperatures.

 

The diameter of the rear discs was increased by 20 mm, as well as the thickness, in order to increase heat capacity and improve performance.

 

5. New +R mode increases the response of chassis and engine for enhanced driving thrills

 

    +R mode activates several dynamic changes to the Type R’s systems
    Provides an even more intense driving experience ideal for the track
    Changes to the dash display and i-MID screen indicate +R mode is engaged

 

The new Civic Type R will mark the debut of the new ‘+R’ mode that increases the response of various chassis and drivetrain systems. This delivers an even more intense driving experience, ideal for the track and sure to be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast.

 

The +R button is located to the left of the steering column for left-hand drive cars, and to the right for right-hand drive cars. When +R mode is activated a number of visual changes inform the driver. The floating dial surrounds in the instrument binnacle change from glowing white to glowing red. A +R logo is displayed to the left of the rev indicator and the Idling Stop system is disabled.

 

With +R mode selected, several dynamic changes are activated within the Civic Type R’s powertrain and dynamics systems.

 

Engine responsiveness is heightened, with torque-mapping changed to a more aggressive and performance-focused setting allowing more of the available torque to be unleashed at lower engine speeds. The electronic power steering reduces the level of power assistance to provide a heavier and tighter steering feel.

 

Basic damping force from the new four-point Adaptive Damper System is increased by 30% making the behaviour of the car firmer and more agile for high-performance handling. The Vehicle Stability Assist programme is adjusted to focus on acceleration and performance, allowing a greater yaw and slip rate before intervening.

 

+R mode also brings a more dynamic focus to the i-MID screen in front of the driver. When in +R mode, it is possible to access the Type R layers directly from any of the four basic information screens, or to directly access the first specific Type R screen. The selection of a specific performance screen is indicated by the display of an image of the Type R. In +R mode it is also possible to display vehicle information content even when the stopwatch is running.

 

6. High standard specification can be enhanced by optional GT Pack and a wide range of accessories

 

    High standard equipment levels ensure the new Civic Type R is as comfortable on the road as on the track
    Optional GT Pack provides a comprehensive suite of styling, convenience and safety enhancements
    A range of accessories offers exterior and interior customisation options

 

Standard Equipment and Safety

 

The all-new Honda Connect infotainment system is fitted as standard to the new Civic Type R, offering convenience and connectivity while on the road. Easy and intuitive to use, Honda Connect runs Android, the world’s most popular smartphone operating system – and employs the familiar ‘pinch, swipe and tap‘ functionality of a smartphone to access its features.

 

Honda Connect gives front-seat occupants rapid access to everything from vehicle information, rear-view parking camera and music, to Bluetooth connectivity. The new system’s functions include: internet access, pre-installed apps, Honda App Centre, AM/FM/DAB and internet radio, phone interface and Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel controls and rear-view parking camera with dynamic guidelines. Sound is fed through a six-speaker 180-watt sound system.

 

The new Honda Connect system – which debuted on the 2015 CR-V earlier this year – offers excellent connectivity to keep Honda owners safely in touch while on the road. Honda Connect is also MirrorLink-enabled, delivering seamless connectivity between the system and the user’s compatible smartphone – provided it is compatible. This technology enables the user to mirror their smartphone display through Honda Connect and gain access to their smartphone applications.

 

With Honda Connect you can also connect to the internet through Smartphone Wifi tethering or Mobile Wifi Router, allowing for full internet browsing while in the car, provided it is stationary, making it possible to search for local amenities or learn about landmarks near to the vehicle’s location.

 

The system comes with a range of pre-installed apps and the user can download other apps from the Honda App Centre.

 

Pre-installed apps include ‘Aha’, which allows effortless access to content and lets the driver keep their eyes on the road. Aha offers thousands of stations of audio – spanning music, news, podcasts and audio books – as well as social media news feeds and location-based services. The easy-to-use, integrated interface makes finding everything from a Twitter account to weather updates as safe and easy as the push of a button. Aha also includes POI searches, helping users locate the nearest restaurants or hotels.

 

Automatic climate control air conditioning and cruise control with speed limiter complete an extensive list of standard equipment.

 

The new Civic Type R retains the same five-star Euro NCAP rating as achieved by the standard Civic five door. It shares the same Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and system of airbags (driver, passenger, side and side curtain), restraint systems (including whiplash lessening front headrests) and active electronic safety systems.

 

Developed in the car-to-car crash testing facility at Tochigi, the ACE™ body structure is now a well-established strength of Honda’s safety credentials. The ACE™ body structure provides significantly enhanced occupant protection in a variety of real-world crash conditions. A front-mounted polygonal main frame is designed to prevent cabin deformation by distributing forces through multiple major load bearing pathways - and away from the passenger compartment. Additionally, it helps to minimise the potential for under- or over-ride situations, this is particularly important where a frontal collision occurs between vehicles of differing heights, weights or frame construction.

 

The City-Brake Active system is specifically designed to help avoid or mitigate low speed accidents and utilises a laser radar system that scans the road ahead and automatically applies the brakes if an imminent risk of collision is detected. The system operates at speeds below 32 km/h and is designed to detect cars and trucks.

GT Pack

Customers will have the option to choose an all-new GT Pack to add further styling, convenience, infotainment and safety technology enhancements to their new Civic Type R.

 

Externally, the GT Pack adds signature red highlights to the front and rear splitters for even greater eye-catching impact, but it’s under the skin where the GT Pack’s most significant upgrades are found.

 

The driver will benefit from extra convenience features such as front and rear parking sensors, dusk sensing headlamps, rain sensing automatic wipers, electrically folding door mirrors.

 

With the GT Pack specified, integrated Garmin satellite navigation (including four years of free map updates) is added to the standard Honda Connect infotainment system. Audiophiles will be attracted by the addition of a CD player and a premium eight-speaker, 212-watt stereo system upgrade.

 

All occupants will appreciate automatic dual zone climate control air conditioning, and sophistication in the cabin is boosted by red ambient lighting.

 

The GT Pack also includes Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist Systems. This comprehensive suite of sensor-based safety technologies includes Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, High-Beam Support System, Blind Spot Information, Cross Traffic Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition System.

 

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning detects the risk of collision by recognising the vehicle (car or truck) directly in front, using the multi-purpose camera. The system operates when the car is at a speed of 15 km/h (9 mph) and above. On detecting the risk of collision, it will offer visual and audible warnings. The warning distance can be adjusted to the driver’s preferences and the system can be turned off by the driver at any time.

 

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning uses the multi-purpose camera to track lane markings on the road. If the car deviates from its current lane without indicating, Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings. The system can be turned off by the driver at any time.

 

High Beam Support System

High Beam Support System works at speeds of more than 40 km/h (25 mph) to switch High Beam head lights on or off automatically depending on oncoming or preceding vehicles (cars, trucks and motorcycles), bicycles and environmental brightness. The system can be turned off by the driver at any time.

 

Blind Spot Information

Blind Spot Information uses radar technology to automatically detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot and warn of potential dangers when the vehicle is travelling at speeds of more than 20 km/h (12 mph). The system is designed to detect cars and trucks and can help to support drivers in situations such as passing other vehicles and merging or changing lanes.

 

When a vehicle enters the driver’s blind spot a visual warning is displayed on the door mirror. This remains until the vehicle leaves the blind spot. If the driver operates the indicator whilst the vehicle is in the blind spot, the visual warning will blink and an audible warning will sound to further alert the driver to the potential danger.

 

Cross Traffic Monitor

Honda’s Cross Traffic Monitor system uses rear side radar sensors to warn the driver of approaching vehicles when reversing. The direction of an approaching vehicle is shown either on the rear-view camera screen or displayed using arrows showing the direction of the travelling vehicle on the i-MID and an audible warning sound. The system is designed to detect cars and trucks travelling up to 25 km/h (16 mph).

 

Traffic Sign Recognition

Traffic Sign Recognition system uses the multi-purpose camera to detect road signs whenever the vehicle is moving forward. The system automatically recognises and displays the signs via the i-MID once the vehicle has passed the sign.

 

The system is designed to detect circular road signs displaying speed limits and ‘No Passing’ information. Two road signs can be displayed at any one time – the right side of the display only shows speed limit signs while the left shows ‘No Passing’ signs and speed limits with additional information; such as weather conditions, for example.

 

Accessory pack options

The new Civic Type R is available with a wider variety of accessory packs and single options than have previously been available for any Type R model, allowing the car to be personalised to suit individuals‘ own preferences.

 

Red Exterior Pack

With the Red Exterior Pack customers can add an extra personal touch to the Civic Type R that will further underline the car’s sporting nature. It offers a combination of accessories that gives the car an exciting, sporty look using Rally Red accents, including a front grille garnish, door mirror covers, a rear diffuser decoration and a roof spoiler.

 

 

 

 

Red Interior Pack

This pack connects the red parts of the car’s exterior with the interior, emphasising its sportiness. Included are air outlet surrounds, a steering wheel accents, red ambient front footwell lighting and doorstep garnishes.

 

Carbon Exterior Pack

The Carbon Exterior Pack gives the Civic Type R exclusive new highlights in a key motorsport material. It includes carbon fibre fog light surrounds, a carbon fibre tailgate garnish and a carbon fibre rear wing– available with gloss black or Rally Red end plates.

 

Carbon Interior Pack

The ultimate expression of racing pedigree, this pack contains carbon fibre air outlet surrounds, a carbon fibre finish to the center console and glove box.

 

Single option accessories

A range of single options, such as Honda 3D Sound, as well as individual elements from the option packs are also available. Honda 3D Sound is able to faithfully reproduce music by adding a compact DSP (digital signal processing) unit to the standard Honda sound system in the car, enhancing the listening experience to give a live concert hall feeling.

 

Specific features of the Civic Type R can be transformed by selecting individual elements from the option packs. For example, hand-made carbon fibre can be applied to the fog light surrounds, while the carbon fibre tailgate garnish or carbon fibre tailgate wing (available with gloss black or Rally Red end plates) can also be added.

 

A roof spoiler, in Rally Red or body colour, is available to provide an additional aesthetic touch. Similarly, the front grille garnish is available in a Rally Red and chrome finsh. Rally Red rear diffuser decoration, exchangable Rally Red covers for the side door mirrors or a fuel cap in a gloss black can be individually specified to bring the true racing spirit of the Type R to life.

 

Inside, the red ambient front footwell lighting gives the interior a sporty but sophisticated feel. The footwell lighting is triggered by turning on the headlights and by opening the door.‘Elegance‘ black floor carpets bring even more of Type R to the front footwell, featuring red linings and a metal Type R badge.

 

The car’s interior can be personalised further by applying a carbon fibre glove box or centre console finish, while the air outlets can be emphasised with a carbon fibre, Rally Red or gloss black surround. The steering wheel can be enhanced with Rally Red or gloss black detailing.

 

The full range of accessories will be available in July on the Honda Genuine Accessories app, available on the App Store and Google Play.

 

7. Tested to success, Civic Type R represents the next generation of hot hatch with class-leading performance

 

    Prototype Civic Type R recorded a time unmatched by any other front-wheel drive performance hatchback around the Nürburgring

 

As part of a rigorous and detailed development and testing programme, a pre-production development Civic Type R achieved a 7 minutes 50.63 seconds lap time of the legendary 20.8 km/12.9 mile Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany. This time is unmatched by any other front-wheel drive performance hatchback.

 

The lap time was achieved during the final phase of pre-production testing in May 2014 by a Civic Type R development car. The development car was in a standard state of engine tune, with suspension, drivetrain, exhaust, brakes and the aerodynamic package identical to those of the production Civic Type R.

 

The removal of equipment such as air conditioning, the front passenger seat and audio equipment offset the additional weight of a full roll cage (installed specifically for safety reasons and not to add rigidity).

News Alert

They R here! First Civic Type R models roll off the line at Honda’s European manufacturing facility in Swindon, UK

02.Jul.2015 

http://hondanews.eu/eu/en/cars/media/pressreleases/57152/they-r-here-first-civic-type-r-models-roll-off-the-line-at-hondas-european-manufacturing-facility-in?utm_campaign=NewsAlert_516&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=hondanews.eu

Today hundreds of production staff and management from Honda’s European car manufacturing facility in Swindon, UK, joined invited guests to celebrate the first production models of the hotly-anticipated Civic Type R rolling off the line.

Breaking cover at Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) to a high-energy fanfare of lights and music, the first three models arrived in patriotic red, white and blue respectively as they left the line heading to Honda dealerships across Europe.

Addressing those gathered for the event, Soichiro Takizawa, Managing Director at HUM, took the opportunity to thank staff for their continued commitment and hard work, expressing the shared pride felt by all at HUM in seeing the all-new British-built Civic Type R in the metal.

The ceremony topped a very positive few months for HUM, following an announcement in March confirming that it will become the global production hub for Honda’s flagship Civic five door model, extending its reach beyond European shores. Reflecting this achievement in his address to those attending, Mr Takizawa spoke of renewed optimism for the plant – regarding it as a major milestone and testament to the knowledge and experience of staff who have been building Civics at the plant for more than twenty years.

Mr Takizawa commented: “The new Civic Type R is an imperative model for Honda, representing our racing spirit and demonstrating our commitment to innovation and passion. We are extremely proud to be the only manufacturer of the Civic Type R in the world. Our high standards have earned us this privilege and this is testament to the continued commitment of our Associates.”

Billed as a ‘Race car for the road’, the new Honda Civic Type R is the most extreme and high-performing model to ever wear the acclaimed ‘Red H’ badge. With a high-revving all-new two litre VTEC TURBO engine, advanced new suspension systems, stand-out function-led styling and a new +R track mode it is set to bring new standards to Europe’s high-performance front-wheel drive hatchback segment. Peak power output is 306BHP, with the engine red-lining at 7,000rpm, delivering a class-leading top speed of 167mph.

The new Honda Civic Type R will be built exclusively for Europe at HUM. The announcement made in March that HUM will become the global production hub for the Civic five door model will see a further investment of £200million for the plant, bringing total investment to £2.2billion since 1985, and confirming Honda’s long-term commitment to manufacturing in the UK and Europe.

Honda sets new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for fuel efficiency, averaging 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) in 13,498km (8,387 mile) drive across 24 EU countries.

07.Jul.2015  |  ID: 57250

http://hondanews.eu/eu/en/cars/media/pressreleases/57250/honda-sets-new-guinness-world-records-title-for-fuel-efficiency-averaging-282-litres-per-100km-10031?utm_campaign=NewsAlert_529&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=hondanews.eu

Honda has set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for ‘Lowest fuel consumption – all 24 contiguous EU countries (all cars)’, recording an average 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) over 13,498km (8,387 miles), in a 25 day drive across all 24 EU contiguous countries.

Behind the wheel of a Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC for the entire journey were two members of Honda’s European Research & Development (R&D) team, Fergal McGrath and Julian Warren, who took on the challenge to further demonstrate the impressive real-world fuel economy of the Tourer.

The remarkable distance travelled is similar to the team driving to Australia from their home in the UK, stopping just nine times to refuel. The car achieved an incredible average 1500km (932 miles) on each tank of fuel, at a total fuel cost for the whole journey of just 645 Euros* (£459).

The team set out on their epic road trip from Aalst, Belgium, on Monday June 1st, navigating the continent in a clockwise direction. They returned to their start point on Thursday June 25th, recording the incredible fuel economy figures which exceed the Tourer’s quoted efficiency of 3.8 litres per 100km (74.3mpg), by more than 25%.

Fergal McGrath comments: “It was tough, but we really enjoyed it, and setting this new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title has made all of the hard work worthwhile. This was a huge team effort so I’d like to thank everyone involved for all of their commitment and support. After spending so much time behind the wheel Julian and I are just happy to be back behind our desks for a while!”

The official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title is ‘Lowest Fuel Consumption – all 24 contiguous EU countries’, measured in litres per 100km and miles per gallon calculated over the entire journey.

Under the rules the same two drivers must be in the car for the whole journey, giving Fergal and Julian, Honda R&D colleagues of some 18 years and based in the UK, the challenge of driving an average of approximately 600km, taking around 7.5 hours, each day.

Based on strict and rigorous guidelines, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt required the car to enter each of the 24 countries specified, collecting a range of evidence including a fuel/mileage logbook, GPS readings, video and photographs and independent witness signatures to prove that it has done so. To ensure accurate monitoring of the route, journey time and distance driven, the record car was fitted with a tracking device, provided by fleet telematics and stolen vehicle recovery expert, TRACKER (part of the Tantalum Corporation).

Under the rules of the record title attempt the car must be a standard model in every respect, with no modifications to create an advantage, to replicate ‘real world’ conditions. This was judged by independent witnesses at the beginning and end of the attempt. Fuelling was carried out at regular filling stations, with the tank filled to the maximum at each stop to ensure no weight advantage. Additionally, tyres were inflated to the recommended pressures and the wheel alignment set to factory specification to represent the experience of the regular customer.

The team, both amateur drivers, were also keen to show that through adopting some simple but very effective driving techniques, anybody could achieve such remarkable fuel economy. They simply used some very logical methods including careful and sensible route planning, driving smoothly and consistently without harsh acceleration or braking, anticipating the road conditions ahead, carrying no unnecessary weight, and ensuring that the car was correctly maintained at all times. Driving speed was always within the law and keeping up with traffic conditions.

Kate Saxton, Manager – PR Communications at Honda Motor Europe Ltd comments: "This is an incredible achievement and the team should all be very proud of the efforts that they have put in to set this new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD. Driving the equivalent distance from their home in the UK to Australia in just 25 days is a huge challenge very few would take on. The fuel economy figures are remarkable – particularly when you consider that this is not a small car, but a tourer with class-leading load space and vast practicality.”

HONDA’S INTERNATIONAL SALES SUCCESS STORY LANDS IN EUROPE

    Honda HR-V arrives in Europe after huge success in Japan and the USA
    Newcomer was Japan’s best-selling SUV in 2014 and in first half of 2015
    In USA, HR-V posts exceptional first month sales
    All-new Honda HR-V will arrive in Europe showrooms this September onwards.

Since going on sale in Japan in late 2013 as the Vezel, the new small SUV’s unique blend of style, space and versatility has catapulted it towards the top of the sales charts. In Europe it will be sold as the HR-V when it arrives this September onwards.

After selling more than 96,000* units in 2014 in Japan and becoming the country’s favourite SUV, the Vezel continued its success by becoming the bestselling car in the SUV category for the past 18 months. To date, the Vezel has attracted over 140,000 Japanese customers with 38,218 sold in the first half of 2015 alone.

In America, Honda’s SUV sales have experienced strong growth over the first half of 2015, increasing by more than 10% over the same period in 2014. This growth culminated in June, following HR-V’s arrival in dealerships, with a record month for SUV sales, up 18% year-on-year. "The new Honda HR-V hit the ground running with an incredible sales performance in just a half month on the market,“ said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of Honda in the US. In its first full month on sale, HR-V posted phenomenal sales of 7,760 units.

Launching in Europe in September, the HR-V incorporates a number of features unique to the region. The ride and handling has been tuned for European roads, while new CVT control logics have been developed to match European motorists’ expectations of automatic transmissions. And with an engine line-up that includes a 120 PS 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine that is only available for Honda vehicles in Europe, the small SUV that has proved so popular in other regions is set to make a big impression in its class.

Jean-Marc Streng, General Manager of Honda Motor Europe, Car Division, said: “We’re very excited about the prospects for HR-V in Europe after it has proven itself to be a big hit in other markets. With styling that combines rugged SUV solidity with coupé looks, a premium interior that offers class-leading space and versatility, and the latest infotainment and safety technologies, we’re confident that the HR-V will be a strong seller when it arrives in showrooms here in the coming months.”

As part of a new and refreshed model line-up, the all-new HR-V and Jazz production models are on display, both demonstrating Honda’s familiar blend of sophisticated design, advanced safety features, and class-leading interior space and versatility.

 

One of the world’s best-selling SUVs, Honda’s CR-V has been refreshed for the European market in 2015, with a new diesel engine and nine-speed automatic transmission, as well as world-first technologies to enhance occupant safety.

 

The 2015 Honda Civic and Civic Tourer feature new sporty exterior and interior styling enhancements and there is a new Civic Sport derivative. The car features Honda Connect, an advanced Android-based infotainment system offering WiFi, Bluetooth, USB, HDMI and Mirror Link connectivity.

 

The new Civic Type R is Honda’s race car for the road and represents Honda’s racing spirit and commitment to delivering class-leading performance through creative engineering.

The Civic Tourer Active Life Concept underlines the Tourer’s class leading cargo space and versatility within the C-segment. The Concept study shows that style and space can work together; a custom paint colour further enhances the sleek and sporty exterior and an accessorised interior demonstrates the Concept’s suitability for an active lifestyle and the needs of its customers.

 

During 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda will demonstrate its personal mobility device, UNI-CUB β. The device features balance control technology and an omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System), which originated from Honda’s pioneering research into humanoid robots, including the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, ASIMO.

 

Honda will be displaying the RC213V-S motorcycle, created by a desire to turn the championship-winning RC213V competing in MotoGP races into a model for the public road. The RC213V-S is not merely the result of a feedback of technologies created by Honda through its competition in races into a commercially available model, but rather represents a wholly new endeavour to make it possible for a machine developed for competition in MotoGP races to run on public roads.

 

2. Global debut of Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V

Winner of Honda’s ‘Global Design Project’ provides the freedom of a motorcycle and the manoeuvrability of a car

 

‘Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V’, the winning entry from Honda’s ‘Global Design Project’, makes its global debut at the 66th Frankfurt Motor Show.

 

Embodying the concept of ‘creative craftsmanship’, Honda Project 2&4 celebrates Honda’s position as the world’s leading engine manufacturer, providing engines to 28 million people per year across two- and four-wheel automotive, power equipment, marine and aerospace applications.

 

An example of the continuous effort to create an ever-more immersive driving experience, Honda Project 2&4 brings together the brand’s unique capabilities in two- and four-wheel mobility. Featuring the RC213V competition motorcycle engine, which has been modified to run on public roads, the Honda Project 2&4 provides the freedom of a motorcycle and the manoeuvrability of a car.

 

Its exceptional engine, a 999 cc V-4 four-stroke unit, was originally developed for the world-class MotoGP motorcycle racing series and has been specially tuned for the public road. The engine conforms to Honda’s ‘The Power of Dreams’ guiding philosophy that inspires innovation and originality. With a 14,000 rpm red line, the unit is mated to a six-speed DCT gearbox and delivers peak power of 215 PS at 13,000 rpm, and peak torque of 118 Nm at 10,500 rpm.

 

Drawing on Honda’s racing heritage, the body design and engine position have been inspired by the legendary Honda RA272 of 1965. The structure reveals the core frame and functional components of the car, much as would be more customary for a motorcycle, and is similarly compact. Overall length is3,040 mm, width1,820 mmand height995 mm. A weight of just405 kgmaximises the power of the mid-mounted engine which, together with the low centre of gravity, ensures an exceptionally high level of responsiveness.

 

The exhilarating feeling created from the open cockpit is significantly enhanced by the driver’s seat, uniquely suspended just above the road. The ‘floating seat’ design places the driver as close to the action as possible, evoking the freedom of a bike and completing the immersion provided by Honda Project 2&4’s extreme performance and unique engineering.

 

3. New and refreshed model line-up from Honda

From the very first glance, the new HR-V portrays a characterful youthfulness, with the distinctive, boldly-sculpted lines of a coupé merged with the tough stance of a robust SUV.

 

The new HR-V is available with a choice of highly efficient 120 PS 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel or 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engines, both part of Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series. The diesel engine is matched to a six-speed manual transmission while the petrol engine is offered with either six-speed manual or CVT transmissions.

Honda Jazz: third generation redefines the B-segment hatchback

The third generation of Honda’s versatile and hugely popular sub-compact hatchback, the all-new 2015 Jazz delivers greater space, versatility, refinement and technology.

 

The all-new Jazz follows Honda’s ‘man maximum, machine minimum’ design concept. This philosophy aims to achieve a compact, highly efficient package by maximising the space for occupants while minimising the space utilised by the car. Class-leading interior capacity and Honda’s innovative packaging solutions are further enhanced thanks to Honda’s Magic Seats system, offering a range of configurations for transporting cargo and passengers.

Honda Civic Type R: a race car for the road

The new Civic Type R is Honda’s race car for the road and represents Honda’s racing spirit and commitment to delivering class-leading performance through creative engineering. Furthermore, the new Civic Type R is an expression of the brand’s pioneering approach to technological innovation. A world-first application of Honda’s new 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO engine, a sporting sound, aggressive function-led styling, and pioneering new chassis technologies combine to deliver one of the most immersive and rewarding driving experiences.

 

The Type R also sees the debut of the new ‘+R’ mode that increases the response of various chassis and drivetrain systems to deliver an even more intense driving experience, ideal for the track.

 

At the heart of the new Civic Type R is an all-new, direct-injected turbocharged 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine, which delivers unrivalled power, torque and performance figures in the front-wheel drive hot hatch segment. Peak power output is 310 PS at 6,500 rpm, and peak torque is 400 Nm between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm – both higher than for any previous Honda Type R model.

Honda NSX: the icon drives again

Complementing the Type R on the Honda stand is the hotly-anticipated NSX hybrid supercar. Developed to fulfil the concept of a ‘human-centred supercar’ that puts the driver first in every aspect of its design.

 

Resulting from a three-year intensive engineering programme by a global design and engineering team at Honda’s development centre in Raymond, Ohio, the NSX features classic low and wide proportions married to modern and alluring surfacing, an aggressive front design, and rear lights that pay homage to the original NSX.

 

Every element of the exterior body design has been carefully fashioned for total airflow management, generating stability-enhancing downforce and aiding vehicle systems cooling. The NSX has undergone extensive testing at the company’s state-of-the-art wind tunnel, leading to a number of significant changes from concept to final body design, including modified bonnet vents, new front wing vents, modified side air intakes, and an optimised rear spoiler.

 

At the heart of the NSX’s performance is an all-new mid-mounted, 75-degree, DOHC V6 engine with twin turbochargers mated to a specially-developed nine-speed DCT. The V6 engine employs a race-inspired compact valve train and dry sump lubrication system to help lower the centre of gravity. The all-new nine-speed DCT delivers synapse-quick gear changes and rev-matching downshifts. The rear direct-drive electric motor, housed between the engine and transmission, supports acceleration, braking and transmission shifting performance.

Honda CR-V: the biggest-selling SUV in the world

One of the most popular SUVs in the world, Honda’s CR-V is refreshed in 2015, with revised styling, new comfort and connectivity features, and world-first technologies to enhance occupant safety.

 

Highlights of the European 2015 model-year CR-V include a new diesel engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission and a world-first safety technology known as ‘Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) system’ introduced as part of Honda SENSING.

 

Using both radar- and camera-based safety technologies Honda’s new i-ACC system is capable of predicting and automatically reacting to other vehicles ‘cutting-in’ to the vehicle’s lane. Based on extensive real-world research of typical European driving styles, Honda’s i-ACC uses a camera and a radar to sense the position of other vehicles on the road. It then applies an algorithm to predict the likelihood of vehicles in neighbouring lanes cutting-in, enabling the equipped vehicle to react quickly, safely and comfortably.

 

Honda’s advanced infotainment system, Honda Connect, has been introduced to the CR-V, offering convenience and connectivity while on the road. Key features include internet radio, internet browsing, satellite navigation and rear-view parking camera.

Honda Civic: new design, new technology and a new Sport derivative

For the 2015 model year, both the Civic and Civic Tourer have benefitted from a sporty new exterior design featuring new headlamps with integrated daytime running lights and a sleek new front bumper. The Civic hatchback also features a new rear bumper, side skirts, a rear spoiler finished in black, and LED rear combination lamps.

 

The Civic’s 477 litre and Civic Tourer’s 624 litre boot capacity remain the best in their respective segments. The 2015 Civic range benefits from the all-new Honda Connect in-car audio and information system.

 

Each model in the 2015 Civic range now offers Honda’s City- Brake Active (CTBA) system as standard. Specifically designed to help avoid or mitigate low speed accidents, the system uses radar technology to scan the road ahead, automatically applying the brakes if an imminent risk of collision is detected. The system is engineered to operate at speeds below 30 km/h.

 

The European Civic line-up has been expanded with the introduction of a new derivative, the new Civic Sport. Based on the Civic hatchback, and powered by the 1.6-litre i-DTEC, 120 PS diesel engine or the 1.8-litre i-VTEC, 142 PS petrol engine, it features a colour-coded rear spoiler and unique 17-inch alloy wheels.

4. Civic Tourer Active Life Concept and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ record-breaking Civic Tourer

All-new concept underlines the Tourer’s class leading cargo space and versatility

Honda will reveal the Civic Tourer Active Life Concept at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, underlining the Tourer’s class leading cargo space and versatility within the C-segment. The Concept study shows that style and space can work together; a custom paint colour further enhances the sleek and sporty exterior and an accessorised interior demonstrates the Concept’s suitability for an active lifestyle and the needs of its customers.

 

Utilising the unique centre fuel-tank layout, the Civic Tourer Active Life Concept makes full use of its 1,668 litres* cargo space and a low loading height. Features include a smart loading rack capable of transporting two bicycles, along with a retractable arm which can be extended from the rack, making maintenance and repairs easier. Other maintenance accessories include a built in integrated air pump, a large light located on the tailgate, an extended shade area and a retractable bench.

 

Further accessories include a toolbox, bottle holder, water tank and a front wheel holder which are all integrated within the trunk side lining. Other clever storage solutions include a special aero shape roof box designed to accommodate essential cycling accessories such as shoes and helmets.

 

The dynamic exterior styling of the Civic Tourer Active Life Concept reflects the sporty and active lifestyle of the customer; featuring a custom blue paint finish with a lower gun-metallic gradation and a silver roofline, which help accentuate the Civic Tourer’s sleek styling and aerodynamic design. New 18-inch alloy wheels and a custom design rear bumper further highlight the Civic Tourer’s sporty character.

 

The interior also features a customised theme; blue stitching can be found on the steering wheel and on the gear shift, along with a sporty black roof lining, which is also found on the Civic Sport and Civic Type R.

 

The front seats combine both suede and leather and feature a carbon tape with blue piping that runs along the centre and along the upper outer areas of the seat, continuing into the suede door lining.

 

Of course, space doesn’t have to come at the cost of efficiency, and to demonstrate that belief, and proving in emphatic terms the efficiency of the new i-DTEC engines from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series, the Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC recently set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for fuel efficiency. The 25-day ‘real-world’ challenge in June saw the car average 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) in a 13,498km (8,387 mile) drive across 24 contiguous EU countries.

5. German debut of the UNI-CUB β

Personal mobility device available to ride in Germany for the first time

 

During the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda will demonstrate its personal mobility device, UNI-CUB β. The device features balance control technology and an omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System). This innovation originates from Honda’s pioneering research into humanoid robots, represented by the research and development of the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, ASIMO. These technologies allow the rider to move UNI-CUB β forward, backward, side-to-side and diagonally simply by shifting their body weight and leaning towards the intended direction.

Since it was first introduced as a concept in 2012, Honda has been testing and verifying the potential utility of the UNI-CUB through a demonstration and testing programme in Japan, conducted jointly with the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan). The new UNI-CUB β is an evolution of the UNI-CUB, developed after analysis of the programme’s data and user feedback.

 

Smaller and lighter, UNI-CUB β weighs 25 kg and features enhanced design and materials, with improved usability and a lower seating position. In total, UNI-CUB β stands 620 mm high, is 510 mm long and 315 mm wide. Power is provided by a Lithium-ion battery giving a 6 km range, or 1.5 hours endurance at 4 km/h. Maximum speed is 6 km/h.

 

With this model, Honda will take another step forward and verify the business feasibility of the device by offering the UNI-CUB β to other businesses and organisations in Japan through a fee-based leasing program.

 

During the Frankfurt Motor Show there will be a five minute demonstration once an hour, after which test rides on the device are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

6. Moto GP Championship-winning motorcycle for the road

The RC213V-S street legal version of Honda’s multiple championship-winning RC213V MotoGP racer is on show alongside CBR1000RR Fireblade and VFR800X Crossrunner

 

Honda RC213V-S

The RC213V is a machine created by Honda exclusively for racing that won consecutive championships in the MotoGP class of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix in 2013 and 2014. In creating the RC213V-S, Honda has made changes to the RC213V that are necessary in order to allow for use on the public road.

 

Naturally, the RC213V-S has inherited many of the characteristics that have made the RC213V so successful on track. These include light weight and specifically machined components, plus the expert skills and techniques required for precision manufacturing. In addition, the RC213V-S is equipped with the same fully-adjustable control technologies deployed to adapt the RC213V to each individual circuit and rider.

 

In developing RC213V’s powertrain, Honda’s aim was to create a motorcycle engine with MotoGP winning potential. To this end, the engine needed to achieve a high enough power output to enable the speeds needed for MotoGP while being as compact as possible. To meet these goals, as well as MotoGP regulations, Honda adopted a 999cc, 90-degree V4 engine with detailed modifications to allow the engine to fit within the mandated dimensions.

 

The RC213V-S engine retains all of the above features, but with a modified rpm profile for output characteristics better suited to public roads. It shares a gear-based timing system for superior valve actuation accuracy at high rpm – just as with RC213V. However, the pneumatic valve mechanism was changed to a coil-spring system for greater durability and easier maintenance in day-to-day running. Similar considerations see the seamless transmission used in RC213V replaced with a conventional gearbox.

 

The RC213V-S is available in two states of tune, as standard with 159 PS (117 kW) at 11,000 rpm or with 215 PS (158 kW) at 13,000 rpm when fitted with the optional Sports Kit. The RC213V-S was designed with riding on public roads as the core premise, but is available with the optional Sports Kit, designed exclusively for racing or riding on closed circuits.

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

From 1992 to date, the CBR1000RR Fireblade’s story is one of constant evolution and development. Honda’s ‘Total Control’ concept – a design philosophy running through every single model – has resulted in a motorcycle in total balance, combining exceptional performance and handling with a satisfying ability to extract the very best from every rider.

 

For the 2014 season, the CBR1000RR Fireblade was updated with enhanced peak power and mid-range torque. The engine now produces peak power of 181 PS (133 kW) at 12,250 rpm with 114 Nm of torque at 10,500rpm. The riding position was also improved and a track-focused CBR1000RR Fireblade SP model created for the first time.

 

Since the first model, all-round usability of potent engine performance – especially throttle control at partial openings – has been a principal factor for Honda’s engineers, achieved through the Programmed Dual Sequential Fuel Injection system (PGM-DSFI). The MotoGP-derived slipper clutch ensures full power transmission together with ultra-smooth gear shifting and light feel at the lever. In the critical hard braking, back-shifting corner-entry phase it decreases the torque passed from engine to the rear wheel, reducing the chance of traction loss and increasing stability.

Honda VFR800X Crossrunner

Built to deal with whatever the road ahead has to offer, the VFR800X Crossrunner’s muscular and minimal adventure-sport style showcases the V4-VTEC engine and aluminium twin-beam frame. Long travel suspension – front and rear – smooths the ride over rough tarmac, while the upright riding position and wide handlebars deliver razor-sharp steering response and agile handling from city to countryside. Honda has also engineered the Crossrunner to handle long distances, with a seat height that adjusts to either 815 mm or 835 mm for optimal comfort.

 

The 782cc liquid-cooled 16-valve DOHC 90° V4-VTEC engine has been designed to generate more low-to-mid-range torque and peak power. Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) operates one pair of inlet / exhaust valves per cylinder at low rpm, switching to four as revs increase. The engine has a characterful feel and produces a unique, thrilling howl through its 4-2-1-1 exhaust Maximum power is 106 PS (78 kW) at 10,250 rpm, while peak torque of 75 Nm is delivered at 8,500 rpm.

 

Housing the engine is a specifically honed chassis,equipped with the 43 mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) telescopic fork which features 131 mm axle travel and stepless spring preload adjustment. This combines with the gas charged rear-shock to create do-it-all adventure-sport-touring capability, blending all-round practicality with focused performance.
