2018 Honda Civic Type R Styling & Interior Features
Take one look at the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, and you’ll know this isn’t a car for everyone. Its aggressive, hot hatch design was intended to stand out even while standing still. The chiseled front end, with the blacked-out grille flanked by LED headlights, seemingly delivers a confident grin as it surveys the pavement it intends to conquer. An incredibly sleek body follows, boasting various aerodynamic enhancements such as side skirts and vortex generators, specially-engineered with the sole purpose of making the Civic Type R cover more ground in less time than its rivals. If the front and middle were two parts of a statement, the massive rear wing and rear diffuser sporting triple tailpipes form the exclamation point, and a very authoritative one. The whole package sits on a stance that’s wide and low, ready to burn rubber. A performance-oriented cabin awaits inside, bringing four people at the forefront of a different driving experience. The front sport seats are race-ready yet provide immense comfort. Details such as the flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminum shift knob and red digital gauge cluster leave little doubt as to the Civic Type R’s purpose. And yet, the generous rear compartment is still roomy enough for the more mundane chores you have in mind, with 60/40 split-fold rear seats that carry unprecedented legroom. Few are the cars that embody practicality and performance in such a small package, and the 2018 Honda Civic Type R belongs to this unique breed.

2018 Honda Civic Type R Specs
Even a track weapon that is the 2018 Honda Civic Type R relies on its own arsenal of engineering innovations, beginning with a 2.0L DOHC inline-4 VTEC engine with single-scroll turbo packing 23.2 psi of boost pressure. This dynamite of a powerplant puts out 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque, channeled to the front wheels by a six-speed manual transmission. A 3-Mode Drive system lets you toggle between Comfort, Sport and +R modes by adjusting throttle response, steering and suspension for a range of driving situations. Despite the power, the Civic Type R has loads of grip with the helical limited-slip differential, complementing the Vehicle Stability Assist™ feature with Traction Control for supreme confidence whether on the road or the track. Large, 4-wheel antilock brakes effortlessly provide superb stopping power to match the Civic Type R’s serious speed. The wait for a lightweight car that can conquer both street and track is over with the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, and the road to jaw-dropping performance starts with Honda World Downey.
