Suspension, Steering, Brakes
Sending all that power to the front wheels presents a big torque challenge, and Honda engineers developed a new dual-axis strut front suspension specifically for the Civic Type R, with the steering axis offset to reduce torque steer. The dual-pinion variable-ratio electric-assist rack-and-pinion steering is tuned for Civic Type R with a focus on responsiveness and performance. The multi-link rear suspension rides on a rigid subframe and the Adaptive Damper System includes electronically-adjustable dampers at all four corners with input from G sensors, suspension stroke sensors and steering angle to vary damping force.
