2020 Honda Civic Type R Gets Performance & Technology Upgrades
The popular Honda Civic Type R performance car is getting a few upgrades for the 2020 model year, including suspension, brake and engine cooling improvements, as well as a new performance data logging app. All 2020 Honda Civic Type R models also receive standard Honda Sensing safety features.
Honda has updated the exterior of the 2020 Civic Type R with new front and rear bumpers and a new grille design that helps keep the engine cooler in combination with an updated radiator core. The interior has also been refreshed, with a new Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, new shift lever and shift knob inspired by previous Type R models.
Suspension upgrades make the 2020 Honda Civic Type R even sharper and more responsive. The Adaptive Damper System now can evaluate road conditions 10 times faster, and stiffer bushings and lower-friction ball joints contribute to better steering feel and handling characteristics.
A first for any Honda vehicle is the new Honda LogR performance data logger app that is available for iPhone and Android users. The app works by using the Type R’s onboard computer and sensors to monitor and record various performance parameters, including lap times, G-forces, GPS location and more.
