What can be regarded as a “superhatch”, the Honda Civic Type R is one of the fastest hatchbacks available in the market. Complementing its performance figures is an aggressive exterior design featuring a large two part rear wing, diffuser package surrounding a quartet of large exhaust tailpipes, low front bumper that integrates a mean front splitter and houses large air intakes with fog lamps.

Output is routed through a six-speed manual transmission to the front wheels. It enables the Civic Type R to hit 0-to-100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds, before reaching a top speed of around 270 km/h.
