Give the hatchback some red accents by adding a three-piece garnish over the grille and upper part of the headlights for 30,000 yen (approx. $340 CAD). Honda also offers a replacement carbon fibre rear wing with a crimson polyester weave for a dash of colour at the back for 160,000 yen (approx. $1,800 CAD). For an extra splash of colour, buyers can pick from Crystal Black Pearl or Red mirror covers for $15,120 yen (approx. $170 CAD) each. A set of yellow LED fog lights go for 31,500 yen (approx. $350 CAD).

As a replacement for the attractive stock wheels, Honda has a set of 18-inch forged pieces for 250,000 yen (approx. $2,800 CAD). They are the same 8.5-inch width as the parts that come on the Type R.

Inside, buyers can spend a lot of money on accessories. An aluminum shift knob with red leather covering costs 18,500 yen (approx. $200 CAD). If you think a dealer in the United States charging $298 for Type R floor mats is bad, it hardly compares to Honda pricing a set for 59,900 yen (approx. $675 CAD). The company also offers red-tinged carbon fibre trim for the dashboard for 45,000 yen (approx. $510 CAD), centre console (34,000 yen / approx. $385)), and door panels (28,000 yen / approx. $315 CAD). The company offers red LED accent lights for the footwell (10,000 yen / approx. $115 CAD).

In Canada, the Civic Type R starts at $40,890. Its 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder produces 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The only available gearbox is a six-speed manual because an automatic would allegedly make the hot hatch too heavy.
