The Type R series of vehicles has a really colorful history. On the Civic platform, it started out with the sixth-generation generation Honda Civic, going by the code EK9, which ran from 1997 to 2000 and later spread to cars under the Acura marque, most famously the Integra Type R.

These older models have become legendary among car enthusiasts, with some pre-owned examples even more expensive than currently sold brand-new Civics.

The current version of the Type R is no slouch, either. Under the hood, it has a durable and tuner-friendly K20C1 engine that makes around 310 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Underneath, Honda has also provided the car with a limited-slip differential and a snappy independent suspension system.

Also noteworthy are the 20-inch tires and the enormous disc brakes lurking behind the wheels, for serious stopping power. As for the gearbox, the Type R thankfully comes in a five-speed manual, the better to take advantage of its performance potential.

With these mechanical innards, the Honda Civic Type R became the fastest production front-wheel-drive car in 2018, with an impressive 7:43:80 time on the Nurburgring. Inside the Honda Civic Type R 2020, you’ll be greeted by a surprisingly comfortable and roomy front cabin.

The seats are of the bucket type, keeping you steady while carving corners. Soft-touch surfaces abound inside the cabin including the center console which houses the cupholders, although the felt-like texture means you'll need to avoid spilling your drinks.

In terms of practicality, the Civic Type R’s rear seats and trunk actually feature generous space. The car also comes equipped with a reverse camera, as the rear window is a bit difficult to see out of.

Other amenities include an engine start button and dual-zone automatic climate control. There's also a 7-inch touchscreen with radio, USB, AUX input, iPod and iPhone connectivity and Bluetooth hands-free, all of which are connected to an 8-speaker setup.

III. Why would you want to buy a 2020 Honda Civic Type R?

While it’s been touted as an affordable and practical way to get into the high-performance scene in other car markets overseas, the Honda Civic Type R here in the Philippines is priced significantly higher. In the United States, a brand-new current model Civic Type R is priced at USD36,595 or Php 1,892,959.

If you're fantasizing about a practical yet heart-pounding experience from a Honda, there are a *lot* of alternatives locally, like getting a Civic SiR or doing an engine swap.

Pricing aside, there's a lot to like on the Type R. It can actually fit a family of four, and in some cases even up to five people. It has ISOFIX anchors that can be used to attach child seats, which means that family guys don't need to be left out of the action. As for safety, the Type R offers an array of dual front, side, and curtain airbags.

And while it does not have a lot of driver-assistive tech save for hill start assist, it did score five stars with NHTSA, IIHS and other car safety organizations in the US. We also gotta hand it to Honda, they really know their target market well, on account of the Type R’s manual transmission.

It actually delivers performance is actually good for its price as it’s already on par with the likes of the Lexus IS 350 F Sport in terms of pricing, practicality, and performance. When it comes to styling though, the 2020 Civic Type R might be too loud for some, sporting more than its fair share of faux vents, and that huge rear wing is definitely not for everyone.

Don’t get us wrong though, as the Type R looks great overall, although you can expect to be occasionally revved at by wannabe racers at a traffic stop.
