    Honda Civic Type R Horsepower and Torque 

    In the words of Autoblog Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore: “you’ll find the Type R to be among the best front-drive cars in the business and a leader in the hot hatch segment.” The 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder engine is a work of motoring art that uses a turbocharging direct injection, and intercooling to deliver:

    • Up to 306 hp
    • Up to 295 lb-ft of torque
    • 7000 rpm Redline



    That daunting engine output exits the vehicle from a specially-tuned center-mounted triple outlet exhaust that releases a throaty growl and keeps air moving through the system for clean and seamless performance. Power is tamed by a 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT) with Rev-Match Control for direct command and outstanding Honda Civic Type R fuel economy.

    Honda Civic Type R Architecture

    Every square inch of the 2019 Honda Civic Type R has been exhaustively designed to meet the exacting needs of the driving purist. The aerodynamic body features a lightweight reinforced chassis with all-aluminum hood to increase rigidity and reduce weight, so expect swift performance and nimble handling.


    Further features include:

    • Front fender vents and functional hood scoop to enhance engine cooling and direct airflow.
    • Underbody spoiler kit to control downforce and airflow for incredible high-speed stability.
    • Vortex generators above the back window to channel air towards the rear spoiler for improved stability and cornering.
    • Rear spoiler fitted at near roof height to create added downforce and a rear diffuser to reduce drag at high speeds.

    The vehicle’s sharp creases and strong lines stand out from the crowd even when you’re parked in the middle of the city, and you can have that performance-focused body personalized in one of the following eye-catching colors:

    • Championship White
    • Rallye Red
    • Aegean Blue Metallic
    • Crystal Black Pearl
    • Polished Metal Metallic
    • Sonic Gray Pearl
