The 2018 Honda Civic Type R is thrilling North Country drivers—as well as drivers across the country—with its race-inspired style and performance. The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is turbocharged to put out 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the 6-speed manual transmission gets power down to the 20-inch wheels. Tucked behind the alloy wheels are red Brembo front brake calipers for responsive stopping. Road or track, the Civic Type R is ready and willing with a lightweight chassis, aluminum hood, and aerodynamic body, adding allure to this hot hatch’s roadway/racetrack double life.
The excitement continues inside the Type R cabin, starting with high-bolstered, black suede-bucket seats. A leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel makes it easy to control the tightest curves and fastest straightaways. The instrument cluster is full of track-born features like customizable digital meters, including a G-force meter, boost pressure gauge, a rev-limit indicator, and a lap time tracker.
The technology in the Civic Type R is just as astonishing as its speed. HondaLink gives you control to activate the push button start, locking and unlocking the doors, and much more, all from an app on your compatible smartphone. A multi-angle rearview camera and Honda Satellite-Linked navigation system further contribute to an easier daily commute, while entertainment comes courtesy of a 540-watt premium audio system with 12 speakers, a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth streaming, and unique serial number on a metal plate near the aluminum shift knob.
