We continue to live in a world where dreams not only can, but also do come true. There was a day when all any Honda fan wanted was to see a Type R in real-life, but they'd settle for video game versions. They would scour the pages of automotive magazines for a glimpse of the unicorn-like R badge. Having a Type R in America was just a dream; however, Honda has now established that not only is the Type R here, but it's also here to stay!

The 2019 Honda Civic Type R boasts a 2.0 L VTEC turbocharged and intercooled engine. From this powerhouse come forth 206 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. This is enough to propel it from zero to sixty in less than 5 seconds. It has three driving modes to fit your mood, adjusting suspension settings and throttle response with ease. And on top of all that, the 2019 Honda Civic Type R isn't too shabby at the gas pump, with impressive numbers, especially with a sport car of its abilities. The 2019 Honda Civic Type R isn't just a one-trick pony. It does drive amazingly well, but it also has other great qualities, which we're sure you'll appreciate, too.


No car in this segment is doing what the 2019 Honda Civic Type R does. The bold styling of the Type R help it stand out, but there's also functionality that goes with every stylistic choice. A hood vent helps with engine cooling, but that's not all that's cool about the Type R's exterior. The rear spoiler and rear vortex generators help create downforce, which will keep your Type R planted around every corner. Wide fenders help house the sporty 20-inch wheels, adding to the sporty styling, as well as performance oriented design. Brembo brakes enhance stopping, LED headlights increase visibility, and symbol of Honda's race heritage--the Type R badge--finishes off the impressive exterior. All you have to do is decide on one of the six colors, with sonic gray pearl being new for this year.


Enthusiasts and reviewers agree that the red, high-bolstered, race-inspired front seats are the best in the segment, hands-down. You feel secure when approaching a corner, but also inspired when cruising around town. The leather-wrapped steering wheel with a flat bottom, is complemented nicely by the aluminum shift-knob of the six-speed manual transmission. To the right of the exclusive Civic Type R Serial Plate is where you'll toggle between one of the three driving modes. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard as are other amazing features: Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, multi-angle rearview camera, and a 540-Watt Premium Audio System with 12 Speakers, including Subwoofer, just to name a few.
