Vehicle Profile: 2017 Honda Civic Type R
The most powerful Honda in the United States

The Honda Civic Type R is the most powerful car Honda has ever built for the United States market and it has redefined what front-drive performance should look like. After a highly-anticipated debut on this side of the Atlantic, the Japanese hot hatchback is ready to dominate the 2017 model year.

Engine

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC® turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out an impressive 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That power goes through a six-speed manual transmission to the front wheels, and any waste exits via a specially-tuned, Center-Exit Triple Exhaust System designed to give every play of the throttle a satisfying, growling response.

Handling

Though the engine takes the spotlight, one of the highlights of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is how it handles itself once the road stops going straight. Its combination of a weight-trimming aluminum chassis and Adaptive Damper System help make the car a real darling in the corners, while high-performance tires and Brembo® front brake calipers contribute to blistering acceleration and deceleration.

Design

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R stands out. The massive downforce-generating rear wing is hard to miss, though even without it the Civic Type R would turn heads everywhere it went thanks to its ultra-aggressive lines, bold fender flares and signature LED headlights and taillights. Inside, the car is a little more muted but no less exciting. The lightweight bucket front seats in red and black fabric not only give the Civic Type R a genuine sports car feel but also help the driver and front passenger stay in place during hard cornering.

Technology

Whether cruising down the highway or putting in laps on the track, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is available with the technology you need to enhance your driving experience. The premium seven-inch audio touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™* and Android Auto™** capability, for instance, brings ease to any long driving trip, especially when paired with the 540-watt, 12-speaker audio system. On the other hand, the customizable digital display, which can show g-forces, lap times and throttle and brake inputs, help you maximize your performance on the track.

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a serious hot hatch designed first and foremost for driving enjoyment, and though it puts a high focus on performance, little comfort has been sacrificed. That means that whether it is driven every day or only on sunny weekends, the Civic Type R is unlikely to disappoint.
