The first back of Honda Civic Type R 2018 came to the Philippine market with only 100 units. Amazingly, just after 2 days, all of the 100 Civic Type R units were reserved. This comes as a lust and regret for those who unfortunately missed out on the first batch when Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) announced that there would be only 100 units shifted for the local market.
And now, good news has finally come to unlucky ones when the Japanese car manufacturer is re-opening up the reservation and the Civic Type R 2018 is now again available for ordering. This move is evaluated to be a positive response of the brand to the massive local demand for its performance hatch.
