Honda Civic Type R sets new lap record for front-drive cars

The Honda Civic Type R hot hatch has outpaced one of Ferrari's most iconic supercars on its way to another lap record.

2020 Honda Civic sedan pricing

Pricing for the Honda Civic sedan has been raised across the range for 2020, but the four-door offering from the Japanese brand won't receive any specification changes in line with the rise.
