2018 Honda Civic Type R: Motor Authority’s Best Car to Buy 2018
Every year, Motor Authority test-drives hundreds of vehicles to tell readers about the best cars, from luxury sedans to hypercars. This year, after driving a mix of vehicles from Porsche, Lexus, Kia, and more, Motor Authority’s Best Car to Buy 2018* is none other than the 2018 Honda Civic Type R! This plucky, fast, and exciting hot hatch won over their hearts. The Type R is the wild child of the Civic lineup, fun to drive and nice to take home to the parents, too.
With its turbocharged 4-cylinder VTEC engine and short-throw six-speed manual transmission, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R is ready to take on your favorite driving road. It’s the most powerful Honda ever sold in America, in fact! Its announcement had enthusiasts at the edge of their seats, and it hasn’t disappointed. With its race-bred chassis and rigid body, you’ll love throwing it around the track all day. 308 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque shoves you back into your seat at launch. It’s also flat, fast, and excellent through the corners.
When you head home from the track, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R becomes a civilized, tamed beast. Adjustable dampers let you choose between comfort or sport settings for more comfortable driving. The Type R comes with wide and thin 19-inch tires, but it still provides a smooth and comfortable ride even over long distances. Whether your Type R eats up miles on the track or the highway, you’ll stay engaged and comfortable for hours.
The Type R also gives you the perks of driving a Honda Civic! It starts life as a fantastic Honda hatchback, with plenty of space for four passengers plus all your gear. The back seat can accommodate your six-foot friends, and the driver and front passenger get special Type R-exclusive seats. The front bucket seats are deeper than those you can find on another Civic model, to help keep you in place through sharp, fast corners. The interior also gets premium cloth trim in the Type R color scheme, with sporty black and aggressive red accents.
