The Honda Civic Type R on Sale Now Priced at $34,775

Comes in one well-equipped Touring package

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R - the most powerful production Honda ever sold in the U.S. goes on sale today with a starting price of $34,775. This confirms the price we first saw on a leaked Monroney sticker.

The Civic Type R, the first Honda to use the Type R badge in the United States, produces 306 hp at 6,500 rpm and 295 lb-ft of torque from 2,500-4500 rpm from its 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 with the automaker's famous i-VTEC variable valve technology.

A short-throw six-speed manual transmission routes power to the front wheels and comes standard with a helical limited-slip differential. The track-spec Civic rides on black 20x8.5-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in 245/30ZR20 Continental SportContact 6 high-performance tires. Stopping power is provided by four-piston Brembo calipers clamping down on 13.8-inch cross-drilled rotors up front and 12.0-inch rotors with single-piston calipers in the rear.

Handling prowess can be attributed to the dual-axis strut front suspension, multi-link rear suspension, exclusive Type R springs, bushings, damper mounting points, and front and rear anti-roll bars. The automaker's Adaptive Damper System utilizes input from three on-board G sensors, four suspension sensors, and a steering angle sensor to continuously adjust damping force at all four corners.

Three selectable driving modes Comfort, Sport, and +R adjust the Civic's Adaptive Damper System, steering, throttle response, and brakes to the driver's preference. The automatic rev matching system has two settings, one for Comfort and Sport, and a more aggressive setting for the +R mode.

The Civic Type R is sold in one well-equipped Touring trim that comes standard with LED daytime running lights, headlights, taillights, fog lights, turn signals, and brake lights. The aerodynamics package consists of a front splitter, side winglets, air-stabilizing vents, a large rear wing, and roof-mounted vortex generators. Inside, the Type R receives a 7.0-inch display screen, a 7.0-inch driver information screen (with various performance displays), navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and a 540-watt, 12-speaker audio system. A lightweight all-aluminum hood and high-flow exhaust with three center-mounted exhaust tips are additional standard Type R performance features.

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R delivers an EPA-rated 22/28/25 mpg city/highway/combined, but that won't stop anyone from buying the hottest hot-hatch ever to come from the land of the rising sun, or in this case, Honda's plant in Swindon, England, where the Type R is currently built.

Inspiration in car building can come from just about any direction and, more often than not, thrives when influence from outside the norm works its way into a builder’s final product, and this 1991 Honda Civic is a prime example of that notion. Borrowing from multiple styles helped create a one-of-a-kind ED chassis Civic that

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic.
