The 2017 Civic Type R comes locked and loaded with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that churns out a massive 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. That’s plenty of pep for any driver, but it gets even better. The Civic Type R features three driving modes. The default “Sport” mode offers a middle ground between performance and comfort. “Comfort” mode delivers a softer suspension that’s perfect for casual driving. “+R” mode tops the range and is meant for high-performance driving with its stiffened chassis, more responsive throttle, and tighter steering.
Did we mention that even with all that power, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R still earns up to an EPA-estimated 22 city/28hwy mpg?*
