At the heart of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a 2.0L VTEC turbocharged engine—the first-ever turbocharged engine for a Type R. Harnessing up to 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque for a richly thrilling and vibrant ride, power is refined through a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, and performance is optimized via a lightweight chassis, 20-inch black alloy wheels with Brembo front brake calipers, a limited slip differential, and an adaptive damper system.
Track-sourced sport pedals deliver heel-toe grip, while a thick leather-wrapped, flat-bottomed steering wheel responds instantly as you tackle tight turns. Look to your dash’s customizable digital meters for data covering anything from G-force to lap times; look below your shift handle to find your vehicle’s unique serial number; turn to your drive mode select dial to refine suspension and adjust throttle response around separate settings.
As you explore the boundless potential of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R, you’ll enjoy flawless comfort from lightweight bucket front seats upholstered with red and black suede-effect fabric. When you tear yourself away from the phenomenal drive, expect to be greeted by technologies such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, and multi-view rearview camera. Not content to merely command the roads of Central Illinois, the Honda Civic Type R puts cutting-edge comfort and convenience at your fingertips.
“There’s an unbridled honesty to the Civic Type R absent in the others, but it maintains its European roots, driving character, and composure at the same time. The precision of its steering and chassis, the tractable turbocharged power, and the ludicrous-speed stability and control afforded by the aero package and adaptive dampers set this Honda apart from its American and German competitors.” ~ Motor Trend
