2017 Honda Civic Type R: The Powerful And Extremely Efficient Car Is Finally Coming To The US
If there's one thing car enthusiasts in the United States have long been wondering is why the highly popular Honda Civic Type R has not been made available in the country. It's time to set aside those questions and stop wondering. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R will finally come to American shores after twenty long years.
The news that the latest Honda Civic Type R will finally be available to the U.S. market comes from an unexpected source. The Environmental Protection Agency or EPA reported that a new version of the Honda Civic will have impressive fuel efficiency. According to the agency, the official fuel economy rating of the said Honda car is 22/28/25 mpg. This means the 2017 Civic Type R's ratings are 22 miles per gallon in the city, 28 miles on the highway, and 25 miles when driving in both city and highway.
AutoBlog compared these numbers to that of the Volkswagen Golf R, one of the Honda Civic Type R's direct rivals. The Golf with direct-shift gearbox (DSG) has a rating of 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway while the 6-speed Golf R is rated 22/30/25 mpg. Other direct competitors of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R are the Ford Focus RS and Subaru WRX STI which have respective EPA ratings of 19/25/22 and 17/23/19 mpg. The figures clearly show that the new Civic Type R can compete with other cars in its class in terms of fuel efficiency.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is not just about efficiency. According to MotorTrend, the new Honda car will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine capable of 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It also features automatic rev-matching. Other features of the powerful Honda include a trio of driving modes which include Comfort, Sport, and +R. The Honda Civic Type R also comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and navigational features. It is also equipped with LED headlights and an audio system with twelve speakers. It is expected to sell for around $30,000.
