Safety first

As one would expect of a performance hatchback, both active and passive safety levels are comprehensively addressed. The Type R comes with agile handling assist, a tyre-pressure monitoring system, reverse rear-view camera and parking sensors.

The Civic Type R has been fitted with airbags all round, including curtain airbags. Known as the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), the airbags offer you greatly enhanced protection while out on the road.  In addition, ABS anti-lock control for the all-disc braking system and Vehicle Stability Assist and ISOFix child seat anchors are standard. The front discs are vented, measure 350mm and are partnered by four-piston caliper Brembo-brakes, while the rear discs measure 296mm. The Type R provides generous levels of security and protection, without compromising the driving experience.
