2017 Honda Civic Type R: The Hottest Civic To Date
At the recently concluded 2017 Geneva Auto Show, the Japanese automaker Honda has finally uncovered its highly anticipated Type R which is set to hit the U.S. shores for the first time when the next-generation model arrives. Considering that there were a lot of rumors surrounding the Civic Type R previously, most of them turned out to be a hoax. That said, the Japanese car maker has revealed that local details of the all-new hatch is due in showrooms in May, while giving the affirmation that Civic R will be a reflection of the existing five-model sedan line-up when it comes to pricing and equipment - with the exception of the sporty RS, which costs $500 more in hatch form.
According to Digital Trends, Civic R's power is being provided by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is said to be both turbocharged and direct-injected. The company said that the new generation Civic R has been specifically designed to generate 306 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 295 pound-feet of torque from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm, which, in turn, are found to be the figures that make the new Type R as powerful as its predecessor. Rightfully so, given the fact that the 2017 Type R will soon arrive with high expectations, experts say that Honda has to deliver the goods if it wants to edge out the fresh-faced Ford Focus RS as well as veterans like the Volkswagen Golf R and Subaru WRX STI.
As per Automobile Mag, aerodynamics are considerably one of the huge components to making the Type R a fiendish little thing on the track, which means that all of those ridiculous scoops and vents actually have a purpose. The enormous wing is also meant to increase the downforce by creating a pressure differential, but Honda decided to use an all-new production method in order to make it extra thin, which, in turn, reduces the drag. In addition, the company has also revealed that the entire suspension system has already been revised, which now combines an updated version of the Dual-Axis front suspension of the last Type R with a new multilink rear.
Ultimately, the production of the 2018 Honda Civic Type R is set to begin in the coming weeks, and the model is scheduled to go on sale nationwide in late spring. Honda explains that pricing should be expected to start within a range of $35,000, a figure that allegedly makes it as the most expensive member of the Civic lineup by a long shot.
