The 2018 Honda Civic Type R is truly a race-inspired street car. Central Illinois drivers have found the Honda Civic Type R to be everything Honda promised it would be. The 2.0L single-scroll engine is turbocharged and ready to roll with 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. This power is controlled by a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission with limited slip differential, while Brembo 4-piston aluminum front calipers quickly pull the Civic Type R to a stop.
Expect to be thrilled and surprisingly comfortable at every turn by how the lightweight chassis handles the road. The Adaptive Damper System actively controls the suspension no matter what roadway (or raceway) you find yourself on. The 3-Mode Drive System allows you to choose which ride you want: whether it’s the track-ready +R mode, the road-worthy Sport setting, or the daily driving Comfort mode—you control the suspension, throttle response, and steering settings. Style and function come together to create an aerodynamic body by way of a front splitter, front air curtains, vented front fenders, functional side skirts, Vortex generators, a rear wing, and rear diffuser.
Once inside the cockpit, you’ll find lightweight, racing seats in front with red and black suede-effect to keep you snug and comfortable. Quick heel/toe maneuvering is made easy with race-inspired sport pedals. The flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel creates precise handling, whether on the street or track. Near the aluminum shift knob is an exclusive serial number on a plaque to notate your 2018 Honda Civic Type R ownership.
Beyond the race-inspired equipment you’ll find a powerful 540-watt premium audio system, a 7-inch Display Audio with electrostatic touchscreen, and compatibility with Pandora, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming, SiriusXM Radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. There’s almost nothing you can’t do from the driver’s seat of the Type R. Find the Central Illinois Honda Dealers location nearest you today and test drive the 2018 Honda Civic Type R.
