FN2 Civic Type-R (2007 -)

The European market Civic Type R is offered only as a three door hatch back and uses a different chassis and internal layout (notably tank placement below the driver’s seat), which will serve as base for the next European Jazz. The rear suspension formerly a double wishbone set up has been changed to a less complex torsion beam axle. The drive train is largely the same as the out going model offering 198 bhp (148 kW) at 7,800 rpm and 142 lb (64 kg) ft of torque at 5,600 rpm. It runs on 225/40 R18 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres.

The new European Civic Type R has, despite some negative reviews – most notably from Jeremy Clarkson, been acclaimed in the motoring press with Top Gear Magazine awarding the European Civic Type R its ‘Hot Hatch of 2007′, praising the car’s controls and comparing it favourably as a driver’s car to its rivals.

The car has met with criticism from Evo Magazine, however, who complained that it falls short dynamically when compared to rivals like the European market Ford Focus ST and Volkswagen Golf GTi particularly in the areas of steering and chassis balance, although the magazine has praised the improved steering feel and more evenly distributed torque of the FN2 compared to the previous EP3.

Nonetheless, the FN2 has outsold the Focus ST and Golf GTI during its first year of availability.
