Who says a “sensible” car can’t also be a blast to drive? With the 2020 Honda Civic Type R, you get the best of both worlds. This new Honda model offers all the things you expect from this tried-and-true vehicle – like great gas mileage and reliability – in addition to a boost in performance over the regular Honda Civic.  

Power 

The base Honda Civic has solid power; its 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine produces 174 horsepower. With the R trim, that output climbs by almost 90 percent. Its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 306 horsepower. And if you can get your hands on exclusive racing fuel, that number can get a lot higher. Plus, you can go from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds.  

Handling 

The “R” in the Honda Civic Type R stands for “racing,” and you’ll quickly see why when you encounter some winding roads. Its front-wheel-drive system incorporates a helical limited-slip differential to provide exceptional traction. You will also get excellent stopping power from the standard Brembo brakes.  

Suspension 

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R comes with an adaptive damper control system. Based on the road conditions, it automatically adjusts the stiffness of the suspension. This means that no matter the terrain, you will always get a smooth ride.  

Safety 

Our new Honda vehicles are always known for their safety, and in this area, the Honda Civic Type R doesn’t disappoint. Standard features include lane keep assist, a rearview camera, a pre-collision warning and braking system, and adaptive cruise control. You can also get blind spot monitoring.
