2018 Civic Type R Worth the Wait | Luther Mankato Honda

The Civic Type is coming to America, and it’s primed to blow the minds of high performance car enthusiasts in St. James, MN. What’s so special about this new Honda hatchback? It’s never been sold in the U.S., only in Europe. Now we get to have a taste of the road-burning Type R. 


It’s supposed to arrive sometime in 2017 and share a platform with the Honda Accord. It will compete with the Ford Focus ST and RS, and the Volkswagen GTI and Golf R

If you own a Civic, you know it’s pretty conservative. The Type R is supposed to shatter Honda driver’s expectations completely. This new Civic is the first real performance car since the Honda S200 roadster that hit the market six years ago. 

The Type R will produce 300 horsepower to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission thanks to the i-VTEC 2.-liter turbo four engine, according to Car and Driver. As you expect with a high performance car, the Type R is supposed to hit 62 MPH in just 5.7 seconds, all the way to a top speed of 167 MPH. How’s that for power? 

Not only is this hatchback powerful, it’s nice to look at inside and out. Every part of the cabin is designed for high-speed stability. Drivers will feel like they can take on any race track with its sweeping lines, side skirts, sporty vents and arches that channel air to increase downforce and improve cooling. When you punch the gas and hear the engine growl supplied by the quad exhausts, you’ll want to take on any road.
