• The 2017 Honda Civic Type R Unveiled and it is Coming to America!


    The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is finally here. The car just rolled out at the Geneva Auto Show in European trim but don’t worry, unlike the last generation, it is scheduled to come to America this spring.

    Under the sexy hood is a 2.0-liter, DOHC, direct-injected, turbocharged, i-VTEC inline-four that produces 306 HP and 295lb-ft. Power is fed exclusively through the front wheels and Honda says the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is stiffer ( 38 percent increase in torsional rigidity) and supposedly faster then the outgoing model. The last gen model posted the same torque but 10 fewer horses.

    The good news for sports car purist is that the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is only available in a six speed manual transmission with rev matching for easier up and down shifts.

    Perhaps just as interesting is that the 2017 Honda Civic Type R now comes with several different drive modes that feature adaptive dampers, steering, shift feel, and throttle response.

    Check out this TFL video below as we got an exclusive sneak peek at the prototype cars interior at the LA Auto Show. Do you like the new car? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
