2017 looks to be a big year for Honda, as it is coming with the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. This is good news for many Honda Civic enthusiasts, especially those in the aftermarket car industry. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R has come out.

The new Honda Civic Type R would be coming out later this Spring 2017. It is a highly anticipated car, since it would be the only second Civic Type R that would be sold directly in the US market. The Honda Civic Type R that is coming would be a hatchback type of car.

The new Honda Civic Type R would be lighter, though it has not been revealed yet what its weight would be. It would be lower though, which would be welcomed by the aftermarket crowd. Its suspension is the multilink rear suspension system. This replaces the older type, which was the torsion beam.

For its engine, it would be a 2.0 liter VTEC engine capable of giving out 306 hp along with 295 lb.-ft. of torque. It will come as a six speed manual transmission car. It will be a front-wheel powered car, unlike other cars of its type which have shifted to an all-power model.

The all-aluminum front hood should reduce weight for the Honda Civic Type R, according to Car and Driver. In a market where lesser weight matters, this is essential for the Civic Type R. Its weight would be slightly lower than a standard Honda Civic hatchback.

Safety is also considered, so the new Honda Civic Type R has structural bracing all over. The Honda Civic Type R isn't slow as well, as it can go to 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds, as evo reports. It can go up to 167 mph. Given its low profile and lesser weight, the new Honda Civic Type R can take on other models in its category.

The Honda Civic Type R has been known and popular in the aftermarket circuit for many years. Its presence in the US will be a welcome one for many enthusiasts there. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R has come out. For 2017, there are new concept cars that could revolutionize driving.
