2018 Honda Civic Type R: Why This Car Matters
Car enthusiasts know what they're getting with a Honda Civic Type R. The 2017 model was a popular one but the car manufacturer just had to alter the car to come up with an even more impressive 2018 Honda Civic Type R hatchback.
The 2018 Honda Civic Type R is more powerful than the 2017 version. As Car Throttle noted, the upcoming Honda Civic Type R, which employs the FK8 chassis, comes with 316bhp, up from the 306bhp of its predecessor which has an FK2 chassis. On the road, the difference is not that much felt, but 10bhp is still an improvement. The front-wheel drive Honda Civic Type R also got rid of the rear torsion beam of the FK2 for a multi-link rear suspension.
Honda lessened the weight of its engine. The 2.0-liter 4 cylinder turbocharged engine of the 2018 Honda Civic Type R is only 8.7kg compared to the 2017 Civic's 14kg engine. Furthermore, the new engine's exhaust valves utilize sodium for better heat transfer.
As Jalopnik pointed out, the Honda Civic Type R is a popular car even before the 2004 model roared its way through the first "Fast & Furious" film. It is all the rage in Japan and other Asian countries especially in the 90s when racers used to fit the Honda Civic Type R with aero kits and huge rims.
There's some good news for fans of the hatchback in the United States, the Honda Civic Type R has finally arrived in the country giving Americans the chance to drive a legend. News that the popular Honda car is coming to U.S. shores was first unveiled by the Environmental Protection Agency after it released its fuel economy rating. With that, every car enthusiast from the 90s onwards jumped in unison to celebrate the news. The Honda Civic Type R went on sale in the U.S.A on June 14 and its base price is pegged at $33,900.
