2017 Honda Civic Type R
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a sport compact unlike any other. That scarlet ‘H’ badge balances speed, body control, cornering mastery, and day-to-day comfort. The Type R has grabbed headlines and awards overseas, and its long-awaited arrival in the U.S. was worth the wait. It sets itself apart from the competition in a number of ways, and you’ll fall in love from the very first test drive.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R stays true to the original Type R design with a versatile hatchback body. It’s designed to evoke power and design from every angle. The Civic Type R gets an exclusive red ‘H’ badge, a symbol of Honda’s racing legacy. The sleek front bumper and LED headlights create an aggressive front, while the striking rear wing demonstrates its aerodynamics. The LED brake lights and aggressive exhaust notes carry the Type R off with bold style.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is in a class of its own, available in only one trim. You can choose between five exterior colors: Championship White, Aegean Blue Metallic, Rallye Red, Crystal Black Pearl, and Polished Metal Metallic. The Type R’s exterior is outlined in bright red to set you apart. Aside from the scarlet ‘H’ badge, you’ll see the redline ringing the spoilers and wheels, as well as bright red brakes and the bold red ‘R’ on the front grille. This single, unique trim comes exclusively with a bold red and black interior color scheme.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is built to do it all. It’s comfortable and makes no sacrifices as your daily driver, but it can turn on a dime and open up to become one of the best sports cars you’ve ever driven. There’s nothing quite like owning a car that holds a Nürburgring record and has a standard 12-speaker stereo system. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a step above the rest, and it’s eager to excel across the board.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R comes with tons of standard features that make it an ideal car for any driver. Even if you won’t be whisking the Type R around challenging corners, you can enjoy the standard 540-Watt 12-speaker premium sound system and the glossy 7-inch infotainment touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, so you can integrate your smartphone to take your music, contacts, and navigation on the road. To stay connected to the road as well as the world, the Type R comes with everything from HondaLink to a backup camera.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R also comes with a satellite-linked navigation system. It shows you 3D renderings of terrain, buildings, and roadsigns and gives turn-by-turn instructions. It also provides lane guidance and a live search function on the accessible 7-inch touchscreen. There’s also a standard multi-angle rearview camera to help you reverse safely. You can choose three different angles to view from the 7-inch display, to give you the best view of what’s behind the Type R.
The Type R also comes with standard dual-zone automatic climate control and illuminated front vanity mirrors, along with many more small conveniences. Every Type R has cruise control, a 12-volt power outlet, push button start, and sport pedals for fun, vibrant shifting. There are two USB ports for easy charging, and you can stream your favorite playlists through Bluetooth connections or through your connected smartphone.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is made to deliver heart-pounding performance. It boasts a 2.0L turbocharged engine that spits out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The Type R is eager to rev to its 7,000-rpm redline, and it’s full of clever technology that helps you keep that vivacious power pointed where you want to go. The engine’s computer moderates the optimal launch, and helps you moderate the clutch to avoid bogging down. When it’s time to set the Type R loose, you can toggle to +R mode. This drive mode transforms the Type R into a red-lit, aggressive track beast. It’s the quickest front-wheel drive production car to go around the fearsome Nürburgring in Germany! It’ll go from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and the quarter-mile goes by in just 13.5 seconds, reaching 108 mph. To counteract all that, the 13.8-inch Brembo front brakes bring you from 70 mph to a stop in just 142 feet, and it grips the road for up to 1.02 g during its roadholding tests.
The Type R’s handling and chassis feel incredible whether you’re going for a casual cruise or letting loose on a track. It’s rare to find a car with terrific track ability that feels mild-mannered on the way home. The Type R offers a surprisingly comfortable ride for a car with stiff sports suspension: the standard adaptive dampers can change firmness depending on drive mode, so you can turn it from Sport to Comfort mode for long drives.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is as race-ready on the inside as it is on the outside. The lightweight bucket front seats are incredibly comfortable. They’re bolstered to support you through hard track corners, while also easy to get into and comfy for hours at a time. The interior design highlights the Type R’s eager sportiness with red and black suede-effect fabric. The flat-bottomed steering wheel is also wrapped in red and black leather, with the grip and heft to tackle the toughest track corners. When you’re cruising or commuting, however, the Type R also has plenty of accommodations. There are five cupholders in the Type R, as well as a spacious console and lots of pockets for interior storage.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is a great traveling companion: not only is it fun to drive and explore new roads, but it also has a large carrying capacity for a small, sporty hatchback. The rear seats fold with a 60/40 split so that you can expand your cargo area. With all the seats folded up, the hatchback yields 26 cubic feet of cargo space: plenty for five or six pieces of carry-on luggage. With the second row folded down, the Type R offers 46 cubic feet of space. It also beats out the competition for rear legroom, so you can take your friends along and impress them with your 2017 Honda Civic Type R.

It has a vehicle stability assist system with traction control, standard anti-lock braking system and electronic brake distribution, and brake assist. There’s also the standard rearview camera to help you out in reverse. The Type R also offers a tire pressure monitoring system, so you never start out with dangerous tires.
