Honda compared three versions of Civic on the Scottish racing track Knockhill Racing Circuit. A civilian hatchback in the modification of Sport, a “charged” Type R and a car prepared for the Great Britain Championship in Highway and Ring Races (BTCC) took part in the race.
Honda Civic Sport is equipped with a 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine, which produces 182 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque. The unit can be interfaced with a manual transmission or a variator. Civic Type R is only available with a manual transmission. The engine – a two-liter turbo engine with a power of 320 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque – allows the hot-hatch to accelerate to a hundred kilometers per hour in 5.7 seconds.
Civic for BTCC is based on Type R, but its engine produces more than 350 forces and 400 Nm of torque. The box is a six-step sequential Xtrac. The weight of the car is only 1280 kilograms (the weight of the usual Type R is 1470 kilograms).
