2019 Honda Civic Type R

The iconic Honda Civic Type R is here to stay, and it is as good as you would have hoped. It’s race bred engineering can be seen from every angle, experienced at every curve, and felt with every touch. The 2.0-L VTEC turbocharged and intercooled engine produces 306 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. This means that the Type R gets you up to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds. However, not only is the power unbelievably satisfying, but also so are the driving modes. The three different modes fit your mood, and driving style. Comfort mode is perfect for a quick drive to the grocery store, while Sport mode will enhance and quick trip up the expressway. However, for the adventurous drive, +R will get you the most performance out of your Type R. The modes aren’t ambivalent either, as each mode adjusts throttle response, suspension settings, and steering settings. The Type R is not just the car every Honda enthusiast dreamed of in the late 90’s and throughout the 2000’s; it’s the care we dreamed of with modern technology, and a lot more power and ability.


  • 306 Horsepower
  • 22 city MPG / 28 highway MPG
  • 2.0 L 4-cylinder
  • Multi-angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • 20-inch Gloss Black Alloy Wheels
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System


The first thing you’ll notice when admiring the Type R’s front end is the fully functional hood scoop and wide stance. Functional air dams direct air where it needs to go, because the Type R isn’t just a big red badge, it’s an expression of purpose at every body angle. The rear spoiler and rear vortex generators enhance downforce, and keep the Type R headed in the right direction when cornering. 20-inch wheels and Brembo brakes enhance handling as well. Six available colors, sonic gray pearl being new for this year, all look amazing, but Championship White is our favorite; however, color choice is subjective, and fact of the matter is that every color is absolutely stunning on the Honda Civic Type R. The stiff chassis is apparent when driving, and the beauty of the Type R is undeniable at all times. Every angle of the Type R is it’s best angle. Selfie, anyone?


Honda didn’t just spend its energy designing a great drivetrain and exterior, it spent major time and effort making the perfect race-inspired interior. The red, high-bolstered front seats are exactly what you would expect from a Type R. The color stands out, their comfort is unmatched, and their race utility is evident. The flat bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel are exactly what you would expect you would use to control the direction of your Type R, and whether driving to the store, or driving through the canyon, this steering wheel is a tactile reminder of why the Honda Civic Type R is simply the best car in its segment. The aluminum shift knob is perfect when rowing through the gears of the six-speed. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are equipped on every type R, as are the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, a multi-angle rearview camera, and a 540-Watt Premium Audio System, including subwoofer. A Civic Type R Serial Plate indicates which Type R you have, which is a great touch by Honda. Bravo!
