One thing is certain when it comes to the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. The engineers at Honda spent a lot of time on its performance. That doesn’t mean that everything else suffered – it didn’t, not one little bit. But when you have a Honda Civic that has this much ability, both on the race track and off, and the Honda reliability and function hasn’t been compromised at all, you’ve done something very right.
How Does the 2017 Honda Civic Type R Perform?
For the first time in Honda’s history, the Civic Type R comes with a turbocharger from factory. The basis of the engine build is a 2.0-liter VTEC four-cylinder, which is nothing new to Honda. What is fresh and fantastic is the power produced when a turbo is added to it.
The 2017 Honda Civic Type R stirs up 306 horsepower from the compact 2.0-liter engine and 295 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the first-generation ‘57 Corvette had just 283 hp from a 4.6-liter V8. Getting so much power from an efficient four-cylinder VTEC engine is incredible, and the benefits are equally impressive.
- The Civic Type R is EPA rated for 25 miles per gallon combined city and highway economy. You can still afford to drive the Civic, even with monster power ratings!
- The 2017 Civic Type R meets federal emissions standards, so you can have your fun without hurting the environment.
- The modern VTEC 4-cylinder doesn’t need any scheduled tune-ups before 100,000 miles, meaning it’s not going to need a rebuild every year like a muscle car.
Owning a 2017 Honda Civic Type R puts you in an elite group. Each one is numbered as it comes off the assembly line, and the performance is bound to draw a smile every time, even for passengers.
