2019 Honda Civic Type R is here to fill the empty space with strength and speed. It is important to say that fans and buyers are most interested in Acura, which marks the great selling season, but Civic simply has to make the perfect combination to offer speed together with great design. On that way, it can be the main competitor to cars like Volkswagen Golf R, Subaru WRX STI or Ford Focus. However, this model is not truly a new one, after the long pause of even 20 years in the production of Civic in Honda factories.
Changing of only important things makes 2019 Honda Civic Type R much more interesting and attractive than last models, with amazingly strong and large mesh front grille and many details over it as decoration. There are two air intakes on the sides of the bumpers, too and LED rounded fog lights, below large LED front lights incorporated under the hood line. To be faster Civic got thin air intake on the hood and more aerodynamic shape. The rear end has small and curved truck door, like many sports cars and highly positioned spoiler. Sloppy roof and large tires support the speed of the car.
It is expected that 2019 Honda Civic Type R has a wide and roomy cabin with sporty shaped seats and steering wheel, but we were surprised with the functionality of the whole cabin. Even though dashboard looks a little flat and old-fashioned at first glance, it has many additions and features to be more attractive. Made of quality leather in black and red color with chromatic details it looks much more modern and attractive. Large 7.0-inch touchscreen stands on the top of it, with numerous buttons and commands below. Comfortable seats have an adjustable function, too.
As on many other Honda cars, 2019 Honda Civic Type R got new and modern turbocharged engine, so 2.0-liter inline-four provides 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Drivers from Caranddriver magazine had a chance to drive it in Canada and measured accelerating the time of only 4.6 seconds, with the ability to stop at 142 feet, thanks to special Brembo brakes. Paired with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel driving system this Civic is perfect for every new buyer. With a top speed of 170 mph, it also becomes interesting to the younger buyers eager for speed.
