2022 Honda Civic Type R

Honda’s next-generation Civic Type R has set a new lap record for a front-wheel drive car at the iconic Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

The hot hatch lapped the 5.8km track in 2 minutes 23.120 seconds, 0.873 seconds faster than its predecessor, the stripped back 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition.

The all-new Civic Type R, which launches in Europe later in 2022, is the latest performance vehicle to prove itself on the iconic Suzuka International Racing Course, famous for its high-speed chicanes and challenging corners.

Suzuka, often described as one of the world’s greatest circuits, has been a test bed for performance Hondas since 1962 and has been home to the Japanese Formula 1 Grand Prix for all but two years since 1987.
