The fifth-generation 2017 Honda Civic Type R marks the arrival of the first Type R-badged Honda on American markets. The Honda Civic Type R is arriving in a single trim: Touring. College Place and Kennewick driving enthusiasts will surely love its aggressive demeanor on the road and on the track, as well as its tech-savvy cabin. The Civic Type R is already breaking records with its rip-roaring powertrain, intelligent handling systems, and fiery sports car spirit. Look below to learn more about its specs and offerings!

Rip-Roaring Performance

One look at the 2017 Honda Civic Type R’s arsenal of performance features tells you this hot-hatch means business. The Civic Type R leaves lesser driving machines in the dust with an exclusive 2.0L i-VTEC turbo engine that summons 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. On and off the track, the Civic Type R uses an Adaptive Damper System to deliver razor-sharp feedback. To add fuel to the fire, activate the +R Driving Mode, which instantly readjusts throttle and steering for a pulse-pounding drive. Of course, its performance features don’t end there; the Civic Type R also includes:

  • Comfort and Sport modes, as well as +R

  • 6-speed manual transmission

  • Limited-slip differential

  • Front Brembo aluminum four-piston calipers with 13.8-inch rotor brakes

  • Dual-axis strut front/independent multi-link rear suspension

  • 20-inch black alloy wheels

Ultra-Sporty Style

The Honda Civic Type R just set the fastest-ever FWD lap time at Nürburgring—and it looks the part of a record-breaker. Oversized front vents and a hood scoop funnel air into the engine, while flared side fenders and a rear wing create that distinctive sports car look. The interior resembles the regular Civic, although the Type R gets sport front seats, red/black suede-like upholstery, and an aluminum shift knob and pedals. Standard features include a 7-inch infotainment display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 12-speaker audio system. Check out a few more the Civic Type R’s most distinguishing traits:

  • Digital Meter Display—puts track times, g-forces, and boost pressure in your line of sight, allowing you to get the most out of every drive.

  • Triple-Exhaust Tip System—gives the Civic Type R a quintessential performance car rumble.

  • Aero Kit—includes a rear diffuser, vortex generators, a wing, and front/side splitters for a body that slices through the air.
