They allow you to adapt the Type R's response to different surfaces and conditions - whether on the road or the racetrack.

Our second 2017 Civic Type R handover

Thursday, 12 October 2017 at 12.42pm

Today we handed over our second new 2017 Civic Type R to a delighted Mrs Sara Renshaw. An experienced car buyer, but new to Trident, Mrs Renshaw was very complimentary about the service that she received from her sales executive - Paul Barnett.

Rarely has there been so much excitement about a new model, but the 2017 Civic Type R is a truly extraordinary machine. As Inside Lane magazine said:

But the great thing about it is that you can hoon to your heart's content in this car and then ease off, slow it down, go back into Comfort Mode, and take the kids to school, or go shopping, or go to work. That's the beauty of a hot hatchback isn't it, that you can have your cake and eat it. You can have the Nürburgring lap time record holder and still use it as a daily driver.

This new generation of Type R has the additional feature of having a Comfort Mode, making it a much more comfortable car for everyday use; whilst being even more capable on the track when in Race Mode than even the extreme outgoing Type R.

In the words of BBC Top Gear's Jason Barlow:

We're going to stick our bits on the block and name this the new hot hatch king.
