Honda Civic Type R review - ignore the looks, this is an astounding hot hatch - MPG and running costs
Aesthetically displeasing perhaps, but the FK8 Civic Type R is magnificent. An honest real-world superhero
MPG and running costs
Aside from the obvious performance gains, the turbocharged engine is also more economical than its naturally aspirated forebears, on paper at least, as the combined rating of 36.7mpg make owning a three hundred plus brake horsepower hot hatch easier to justify.
Unfortunately, rivals like the Golf R and Audi S3 both crack the 40mpg mark when combined with a dual clutch gearbox, so although impressive, the Civic is by no means the most efficient in the class.
