Enthusiasts have been hyped for the release of the performance-oriented Honda Civic for a while, and now the automaker is ready to deliver. The Japanese automaker announced that the Honda Civic Type R would officially hit dealership showrooms in late spring this year. The performance-driven model packs a powerful engine, plenty of technology, and much more.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R boasts a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out a massive 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque without missing a beat. That engine comes with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. No automatic transmission is available.
Drivers will also enjoy a variety of premium standard features, including a seven-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 12-speaker sound system. Sport seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel further provide a sporty, upscale feel to the hot hatch.
Available only in a hatchback body style, the Civic Type R brings plenty of versatility with an attractive design that shows off edges and curves unlike any other competition. The model will makes its official debut in April and starts in the mid-$30,000 price range.
