The Honda Malaysia version Civic Type R, codename FK8, is the most excellent Civic type that you can possess.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, March 13, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Honda Malaysia version Civic Type R, codename FK8, is the most excellent Civic type that you can possess. With the traditional Civic hatchback shell as well as cabin characteristics, Type R is unique compared to others. For the car enthusiast, it is very suitable to provide a comfortable hatchback for the family members while speeding on the racing track. More information will be mentioned later.

The most eye-catching-what about the price?

The brand new Type-R is reasonably expensive (RM 330,002 without insurance) for its excellent performance and perfect configuration, a 2.0-litre and four-cylinder DOHC VTEC Turbo as well as a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission to power wheels. It is worth mentioning that the 2020 Honda Civic Type R is manufactured in Swindon factories in the UK, accompanied by excise duties and applied taxes. These factors lead to the higher price for nearly RM 200,000 against its rivals.

Additionally, there is only one variant color of the Type-R in its Malaysia official distributors for Championship White, although other regions process various colours like Sonic Grey.

The most exciting-Pros VS Cons

Undoubtedly, the advantages of the Honda Civic Type-R is its superior road performance with its sharp handling and better than average acceleration and driver involvement features like its manual transmission. Although with its high-performance model, the ride is not stiff enough and rather comfortable even if it rolls on a set of 20-inch alloy wheels. Being a Civic, the unit also features good space and practicality for all passengers and cargo. However, the 2020 Type-R is the fastest and the most powerful type of the Civic Type from now on.

As for the cons, the styling is a little unique for most people who would prefer a more subtle appearance of the family car, though this works in favor of the model since it is an extreme take on the Civic. Moreover, the engine is too quiet even though the performance represents the high point of this Civic set.

The most confused choice-what are the alternatives?

Generally, there are lots of alternative options in the segment market, but the Megane R.S. 280 Cup would be the competitor for Type-R in terms of their street performance. The Megane R.S. 280 Cup has rear-wheel steering technology, and it is available with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, serving for those who choose two pedals instead of three.

Another prestigious rival is the Volkswagen Malaysia Golf R. With it’s lightning 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic and permanent 4MOTION all-wheel-drive system, this car allows customers to explore its performance even with slippery conditions. The only one disadvantage of this car is that the Golf R does not possess the ability as the front-wheel driven Type-R has.

The 2020 Honda Type-R will undoubtedly satisfy what car enthusiasts need. Even though it still needs some favorable policies to push the customers to pick a Honda instead of a BMW.
