Honda Civic Type R in Malaysia

The Honda Civic line-up is now complete in Malaysia, the dual launch of both the Civic Type R and the Honda Hybrid in Malaysia, fully from Japan. Read after the jump about the Civic Type R, with about the Civic Hybrid in a following post.

At first because of how stunning the Civic looks like, you might the Civic Type R as nothing than a Civic with a bodykit. The body is not significantly with only the front being Type-R exclusive and a slightly wider look at the The front bumper has a huge air designed into it, and the rear has a built-in diffuser.

There are no in the front bumper design as the two intakes flanking the large one is functional, feeding air to cool the brakes.

The K20A engine is an over previous K20A R engines – it now makes 225PS at and goes up to a redline of 8,400rpm. torque is rated at 215Nm at – just after the i-VTEC cam point at 5,800rpm.

What makes the new engine powerful? Honda has improved the previous K20A in a few ways.

The manifold design has been – it is now a straightened, short, single-tract, design. The Drive-By-Wire throttle has had its diameter increased from to 64mm.

The head ports now a smoother surface (reduced by approximately 40%) thanks to a coating process first in the NSX.

The compression ratio is now increased from 11.5:1 to The exhaust manifold is now of a narrow-angle design, and finally, the exhaust design has been straightened as bending equals smoother

Other performance-enhancing features been carried over the Integra Type R engine, roller bearing rocker high load-bearing strengthened con high-strength crank shaft, forged chrome-molybdenum flywheel, and variable length silencer. strengthened components are essential to the Civic Type Rs high speeds.

The K20A Type R is mated to a 6-speed close manual gearbox which has new different from the one in the Integra R to match the engine s new torque as you can see from the diagram above. It sports a highly rigid transmission case and a baffle to mitigate oil starvation during speed cornering.

As for the chassis, it is 50% more rigid and lighter than the Integra R. Rigidity enhancements include front bulkhead adhesives, upper cross main bar thickness, increased sub frame unit board thickness, rer floor stiffener and welding added rear floor and increased rear stabilizer unit board thickness.

rigidity enhancements bring an weight of 1.8kg, but are offset by reduction measures of 13.4kg as a of an aluminium front bumper removed dashboard insulator, floor melt set, middle floor under thinner rear glass and unified front license base. The total weight of the car air-conditioning is 1,250kg.

Handling has enhanced with a combination of differential and tires. The front remains a MacPherson strut but for the Type R the dampers have an valve size, a higher rate by 1.25 times, and an load capacity. Springs have been revised, and clearance is lower by 10mm to the Honda Civic 2.0S.

The stabilizer bars are now stiffer and bush springs are raised, and the are not more rigid. Finally, bearing size is now larger.

On the the car uses a reactive link wishbone suspension with much similar to the front – increased valve size, damping rate by 1.6 times, load capacity, revised rates, stiffer and thicker bars, and raised bush Ground clearance at the rear is by 5mm compared to the Honda Civic

Cornering performance is increased a torsen helical LSD system limits wheel spin hard cornering. Wheels are 18 Bridgestone Potenza RE070 with Potenza trademark tread pattern – the thread is with a big block design on the for increased tread rigidity at cornering speeds, while the tread pattern is highly for reduced hydroplaning. Stopping is good thanks to 320mm brakes which leave gap between disc and wheel, and Brembo calipers.

These discs are air-cooled via in the front bumper.

On the interior, it is black and red colour coded, you that you are sitting in a sporty The front seats are really looking buckets with a headrest. There is also a displayed engine start

The key you get for this car is an exclusive Type R key features keyless entry.

The meter display is similar but not the same as the Civic that we come to be familiar with on our shores. For one, the meter are red-themed, and there is an additional light feature in the upper which helps you know you are in the rev range and when to shift taking your eyes off the to look at the lower deck the RPM meter is.

I youd care what system this car has since you can to the Type R engine under the but youll notice that the head unit is gone, in its place is an Alpine 2-DIN unit. It is a single-CD system a changer. And of course, there is the dual SRS airbags.

One thing you have to realize is the 225PS rating is if you use RON100 so with our local maximum petrol youd likely get a figure because the engine system will automatically for the lower octane petrol to engine knocking.

I was expecting the Type R to be priced a little than the RM199,800 it is currently for, as it is pretty much a ready machine. I expected RM220,000 or something in that It also comes with a manufacturer warranty.

This be really popular with the MME all you need to do is buy one and do similar mods to it on what Honda Malaysia did their MME Civic last It s definitely a proven performer on the
