Experience the 2017 Civic Type R Performance

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a vehicle created with the intention of delivering racing-inspired performance to Detroit area drivers. Its stunning exterior boasts an extremely sporty style that is easily complemented by the vehicle’s incredible performance abilities. In reference to its incredible performance aspects, Car and Driver proclaims that “this thoroughbred Civic is the hard-core hot hatch we’ve been waiting for.” Keep reading to learn more about this Honda superstar and all of its performance features. 

A Superpowered Engine

Drivers get a real taste of power when behind the wheel of the Civic Type R. Equipped with a 2.0L Inline 4-cylinder engine with the ability to easily dole out up to 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, Civic Type R performance truly starts at the core. The addition of a three-mode drive system also gives drivers control over handling and performance with Comfort, Sport, and +R drive mode options.


The Civic Type R’s racing potential is clearly seen when we take a look at the standard 6-speed manual transmission with rev-match control, lightweight single-mass flywheel, and helical limited-slip differential. This kind of control and speed is exactly what it takes to accomplish a feat as great as setting an all-new record time for front-wheel drive vehicles at the Nürburgring—which the 2017 Honda Civic Type R did.

Fuel Efficiency

Even with so many incredible performance aspects, the 2017 Civic Type R doesn’t pass up the chance to provide drivers with great fuel economy. The 6-speed manual transmission, front-wheel drive vehicle is capable of getting an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined—quite impressive numbers for such a high-performing vehicle.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – To ensure that drivers are able to stay safe and maximize performance on the track, this feature helps to keep the vehicle firmly rooted on the road, even in inclement weather conditions or bumpy terrain. It also comes in handy for keeping the driver in control of the vehicle during sharp acceleration, quick braking, and turns.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System – To reduce wear to tires and enhance overall safety, this system works to keep the brakes from locking up during braking, which can cause skidding and reduce performance.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution – By distributing braking pressure evenly to each individual wheel, electronic brake distribution aids in bringing the Civic Type R to quicker and safer stops.
  • Brake Assist – If the driver suddenly applies heavy braking pressure, brake assist kicks in and adds extra pressure to help bring the vehicle to a quick, yet safe stop.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system helps keep drivers informed of the vehicle’s current tire pressure, alerting them when it’s time for a tune-up so that they can continue to experience maximum Civic Type R performance.
