Kit out your Civic Type R with these new sporty accessories from Honda Access.
For the 2020 model year, the Honda Civic Type R was updated with a slew of styling and performance enhancements to ease the wait for the next-generation model. In Japan, owners can now kit out their Civic Type R with a range of official dealer-installed accessories from Honda Access that subtly sharpens up the styling.
To help the Civic Type R stand out from the crowd, Honda Access is offering new multi-spoke 'Modulo FK8' wheels. In contrast to the standard 20-inch black wheels, the custom rims are painted in white with red center caps and Brembo brake calipers that match the red exterior accents.
This isn't just a cosmetic upgrade either, as the Modulo FK8 wheels are made from an A6000 series aluminum alloy material commonly used in the aerospace industry. They were also produced using an advanced forging and machining process saving up to 4.6 pounds at each corner, reducing the car's unsprung weight.
Elsewhere, eye-catching red trim can be applied to the full width of the Civic Type R's front fascia, complemented with red door mirror caps. A carbon-fiber rear wing and a prominent hood scoop with red carbon weave round off the available exterior accessories.
Inside, the red theme continues with red carbon fiber weave applied to the dashboard, door cards, and around the gear lever. Red ambient lighting can also be applied to the door handles, door pockets, footwell, and center console, along with red piping on the door sill protectors and floor mats, which also feature Type R logos.
Honda Access doesn't offer any modifications under the hood, however, so the 2.0-liter turbo inline-four gas engine has been left stock. As standard, Honda's 2.0-liter turbo produces 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
