Honda Civic Type R 'UK's best-selling 3-door'

Thu, 27 Mar 2008
Motorists in the UK have been snapping up the Honda Civic Type R more than any other three-door vehicle on the market, new figures show.

The car from the Japanese manufacturer finished ahead of the Ford Focus ST and Gold GTI vehicles on the market.

According to statistics from the company, there have been some 5,192 cars since its launch in March 2007.

Indeed, last year the model picked up the Hot Hatch of the Year awards from both Top Gear and Auto Express.

Honda added that one big perk of the model is that its value does not deplete as much as its competitors'.

"The current residual value for the Civic Type R GT is an amazing 52 per cent - this compares favourably with both the Focus ST (40 per cent) and Golf GTI (43 per cent)," commented the company.

Honda was founded in 1948 and its headquarters is in Tokyo.ADNFCR-1081-ID-18525179-ADNFCR
