Simply put, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R is the real deal. This hot hatch has a considerable heritage of performance, meaning track-ready speed and precise handling come standard. With its iconic and exclusive Championship White paint option, standard rear diffuser, 20-inch alloy wheels, and nearly roof-height rear wing, the Civic Type R has a remarkable presence. Even the center-mounted triple exhaust is tuned for a throaty growl to announce your arrival.
The Honda Civic Type R is powered by a 2.0L VTEC turbocharged engine producing 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. All this coupled with Brembo brakes, an Active Damper System, and a body specially tuned for aerodynamic downforce helped the Civic Type R set the lap record in 2016 for front-wheel drive production vehicles at the legendary Nürburgring in Germany.
Flip the switch from +R mode to Sport or Comfort mode and the Type R morphs from a race-inspired hatchback into a mild-mannered daily driver with features like a 540-watt, 12-speaker stereo, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a multi-angle rearview camera, HondaLink, lightweight bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and sport pedals designed for those who want to perfect their heel-and-toe downshifting. The Type R even comes with its own, individual number plaque to distinctly set each Type R apart the next.
