Defining Features of the Honda Civic Type R

The Honda Civic Type R was originally designed with the racetrack in mind and features a 2.0-liter direct-injected turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This powerful combination in tandem with its VTEC™ valvetrain churns out an impressive 306-horsepower and 295-pound-feet of torque. This fantastic powertrain is handled with a six-speed manual transmission offering three drive modes that alter your suspension, steering, and throttle response.

Updates to the 2020 Iteration

In 2020, the base-level performance design is further improved with new two-piece brake rotors and brake pads that make high-speed braking more effective. The suspension and aerodynamics are also slightly changed for performance optimization, and the front grille is enlarged for better engine cooling.

Other changes find themselves in safety and styling add-ons. Expect the driver's assistance and safety technology, Honda Sensing®, as a standard feature. San Diego will also enjoy the addition of the Alcantara™-wrapped steering wheel accompanied by redesigned shifter knobs and throws. Boost Blue, a new paint color exclusive to the Honda Civic Type R, is also added into the mix.
