2017 Honda Civic Type R new features and release date

If you’ve been following the Honda camp recently, you’ve probably come to learn how excited we are about introducing the Civic Type R trim to the world. A few weeks ago, it was finally introduced at the Geneva Motor Show and our team at Planet Honda wants to show you what it can do. Come in and check out the 2017 Honda Civic Type R new features and release date!

2017 Honda Civic Type R engine specs and performance

Part of the reason the Civic Type R has been so highly touted is because of the impressive performance it delivers from under the hood. It’s set to feature a 2.0-liter DOHC I-VTEC engine capable of producing a maximum of 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque!

That’s not all, however; a short throw 6-speed manual transmission and single-mass flywheel are exclusive to the Type R, both of which will help to make it one of the most thrilling rides on the road, no matter which of the three (Comfort, Sport and +R) drive modes you opt for.

2017 Honda Civic Type R exterior and interior features

We’ve come to expect a lot from the Honda Civic line, and the Type R is ready to deliver. Building off of upgrades from the 10th generation Civic hatchback, the Type R will feature a new Dual-Axis front suspension and four-wheel Adaptive Suspension System, helping to keep your drive smoother than ever.
