2017 Honda Civic Type R Video Review

CARS.COM — Enthusiasts, rejoice! The Honda Civic Type R will finally be available in the U.S.! We got to take a look at it on the floor of the 2017 New York International Auto Show. The new 2017 Civic Type R is based on the hatchback body style of the current Civic and features aggressive front and side splitters, and a rear wing that borders on the ridiculous. The hot hatch will ride on a sport suspension and unique 20-inch wheels; the wheels hide Brembo brakes just in case you ever want to stop driving. The inside features red one-piece sport seats and there’s only a six-speed manual to shift gears. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 306 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque.

Please stop drooling and check out the video before the Civic Type R goes on sale later in 2017.
