A New Definition of Performance

After make its grand entrance in Geneva, Honda unveiled the new Civic Type R at the 2017 AutoCon event in LA last month. After wild success in Europe, we’re excited to see this hot-hatch on our streets. The Type R will build on the Civic Hatchback’s strengths—engine power, interior space, technological sophistication, and stunning design—in novel ways. For example, the Type R will be powered by a 2.0L DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder engine that gets 306 hp and also ensures 295 lb-ft of torque, meaning that it will debut as the fastest and most powerful Honda ever to enter the North American market. Yet at the same time, the Type R will offer up unique styling, making it the kind of hot-hatch for which enthusiasts state-side have been waiting for years. What’s more, the new Civic Type R will enter the market at affordably priced, something few performance cars can claim.
