Honda unveiled the long-awaited all-new 2017 Civic Type R at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. The Civic Type R has many anticipated high-quality features including a high performance 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain and i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder engine with a peak 306 horsepower. This will be the most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever. Here is what we know so far:

It is set to make its U.S. debut at the New York International Auto Show on April 12, 2017. The Civic Type R is the first ever Type R-badged Honda to be sold in America. Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. is excited to see the Type R make its way over to the U.S.

“The fastest, most powerful Honda ever sold in America, the Type R caps off the incredible success story of our 10th generation Civic lineup. We’re happy to inform our U.S. enthusiasts that the long wait for the forbidden fruit of Honda Type R performance is nearly over!”

Drivers can enjoy the major chassis and suspension upgrades that make for a track-ready performance. The Civic Type-R comes complete with a new Dual-Axis front suspension setup with aluminum lower arms and steering knuckles, which improves at-the-limit cornering and reduces torque steer, as well as an adaptive dual-pinion electric power steering system with variable gear ratio. The Civic Type-R also features heavily bolstered sports seats (as pictured above) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Additionally, drivers have access to a 7-inch display audio touchscreen interface equipped with Honda Navigation system, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility and more.
We are excited to finally have the Civic Type-R in the United States. To learn more about the Civic Type-R features and capabilities, click here.
