Finding a car that’s sure to satisfy hasn’t always been so easy, but this year, one contender stands head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. The writers and reviewers at Motor Authority have just named the 2017 Honda Civic Type R as the Best Car to Buy in 2018, and once you’ve seen what it can do, you’ll have no trouble seeing why. The Civic Type R’s performance and style are sure to excite the adventurous side of every driver in the Capital Region.
What Makes the Type R Stand Out?
In this year’s competition, the Civic Type R went up against the Porsche Panamera, the Lexus LC 500, and the Kia Stinger GT. Thanks to its new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, its spacious hatchback interior, and its “amazingly civilized” road manners, the Civic Type R triumphed over them all! Surprising as this may seem, the Civic Type R’s success didn’t come out of nowhere. It’s the result of decades of dedication from Honda’s engineers.
- 540-Watt Premium Audio System: Eleven speakers, a subwoofer, and 540 watts of power allows the Civic Type R’s Premium Audio System to render your favorite tunes, audiobooks, and podcasts in the way they were meant to be heard.
- Handling Capability: The Civic Type R’s standard 20-inch alloy wheels, Brembo front brakes, and maximum performance summer tires will offer superior control, responsiveness, and traction whether you’re racing down the track or zipping around the city. A standard adaptive damper system ensures an incredibly smooth ride.
- 2.0L VTEC Turbocharged Engine: 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque make the Civic Type R a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to the inclusion of a 6-speed manual transmission and a three-mode drive system (with Comfort, Sport, and +R settings), you’ll be able to experience every ounce of power it has to offer!
- Aerodynamic Design: Vented front fenders, a front splitter, functional side skirts, roof-mounted vortex generators, and a rear wing combine to help the Civic Type R cut through the air like no other car. They also give this Honda a unique, sporty look.
