Looking for something special? Meet the 2018 Honda Civic Type R
Once in a while a vehicle comes along and doesn’t just raise the bar; it breaks the mould altogether, and more often than not that trendsetting vehicle tends to be a Honda. Here we will look at Honda’s latest amazing offering – the 2018 Honda Civic Type R – and why it is one ride you definitely won’t want to miss.
Prepare yourself for your most exhilarating ride yet, because the Type R comes backed by a 2.0L, 16-valve, direct injected VTEC turbo engine that will take your breath away. Not only does this remarkable four-cylinder crank out 306 horsepower and 295 lb/ft. of torque, it is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission that features rev-matching control.
From the moment you step inside the new Type R you know you are in for something special, as you are greeted by race-inspired and ergonomically designed red sport seats. Featuring side supports, double-stitching, and suede-effect fabric, this stylish seating will keep you relaxed and comfortable all the way from A to B, whether you are commuting through the city, cruising on the highway, or tearing up the track.
Three driving modes
Far from being just a stylish and powerful vehicle, this savvy Honda even lets you choose a driving mode to suit your mood via the ‘Sport’, ‘Comfort’, and ‘+R’ settings. Each custom configuration impacts the way your Honda feels and handles by letting you manipulate factors such as throttle response, transmission rev-matching, the adaptive damper system.
Rear wing spoiler
One of the most awe-inspiring features of this breathtaking vehicle is its rear wing spoiler, which is guaranteed to have heads-turning and tongues wagging everywhere you go. Apart from making the new Civic look stunningly stylish, its rear wing dramatically improves control and handling by making it easier to generate down-force.
Music lovers are in for a real treat, because the Type R boasts a 540-Watt, AM/FM Premium Audio system that is nothing short of pure audio bliss. Aside from providing rich, deep, and clear sound, this stunning system boasts 12 strategically positioned speakers that will have your favourite tunes sounding better than ever before.
Optimal stopping power
A vehicle this powerful needs next-level stopping ability, which is exactly what you get thanks to front disc brakes that are power-assisted, cross-drilled, and ventilated. Better yet, the Type R comes equipped with high performance Brembo 4-piston aluminum calipers, which means optimal control and maximum peace of mind.
In case the power, response, and control of this impressive Civic aren’t enough for you, Honda has added a little extra feel by way of aluminum-trimmed sport pedals. These stylish and textured pedals make everything from accelerating and braking to shifting gears safer, easier, and a lot more fun.
