Drivers across the region know the Honda Civic as a reliable, comfortable, and well-equipped car – truly one of the best deals for your dollar – but to some it’s more than that. The Honda Civic Type R has tempted drivers from acrosso the ocean, having a wide and popular European release in recent years, but it’s coming to the United States soon. Featuring race-track-inspired power, a sports car’s build, and a spectrum of other exciting features, the Type R offers a new take on the Civic.

Introducing the Honda Civic Type R

Combining colossal power, stunning styling, and soon-to-be-legendary driving technology, the Type R is poised to transform the way you think about small cars. Here’s why:

  • Engine Power – For starters, the Type R runs on a 2.0L i-VTEC Turbocharged engine that cranks out an astonishing 306 hp while also promising 295 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, it augments performance with Adaptive Dampers, a Limited Slip Differential for better cornering, and a +R Driving Mode that gives you three customized drive modes.

  • Scintillating Design – You’ll get a Track-Tested Aero Kit, with front and side splitters, a rear diffuser, vortex generators, and even a wing that helps keep the Type R firmly situated on the ground. Plus, you can look forward to turning some heads with its 20-inch Black Alloy wheels.

  • Technological Sophistication – We’ll just take one example here: the Type R is embedded with a Customizable Digital Meter Display that allows you to boost pressure and g-forces to maximize performance. How many small cars offer that?
