What’s New for 2017?

It took Honda 20 years to bring the legendary Civic Type R to the United States for 2017. Previous models had been sold in Europe and Asia, but the introduction of a global platform for the 10th-gen Civic lineup—introduced in 2016—was the catalyst for its long-awaited arrival on these shores. Assembled in England, the Type R is available only as a four-door hatchback and manifests power from an exclusive turbo 2.0-liter inline-four built in Ohio. While that engine wears the fabled i-VTEC insignia, it behaves very differently from the high-revving, naturally aspirated four-bangers of past Type Rs. In addition to its special engine, the Type R adds wild-looking track-oriented aerodynamics, special chassis tuning, and liberal use of red accents.
