At the heart of the performance of the Civic Type R is an in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. With that power under the hood, drivers will get up to 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft of torque, making it a force to be reckoned with on the road.
The engine works in tandem with a 6-speed manual transmission that delivers the power generated under the hood to the front wheels. The throws between the gears are short, and whether you’re cornering or accelerating in the fast lane, your experience behind the wheel is engaging and fun. And with Rev-Match Control, the Civic Type R smoothly moves through the gears, whether you’re accelerating and passing or merging on to the highway.
The suspension of the Civic Type R creates a stiff and sport-tuned performance that’s track ready and provides plenty of thrills on the road. Yet, the Civic Type R’s suspension absorbs road impurities and offers exceptional comfort too.
