2016 Honda Civic Type R

If you’ve been hankering for a Honda Civic with a little bit more oomph, the forthcoming 2016 Honda Civic Type-R will be for you. This model, which has been available for some time in Europe, is finally coming to the United States next year, in all of its turbocharged glory. The Honda Civic Type-R has been called the most extreme Honda Civic ever, and when it arrives to the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area, it will likely only be sold in a hatchback body style. Read on to learn all about the new 2016 Honda Civic Type-R!

The Hottest Civic Yet

The new tenth generation Honda Civic is trying something different: all Civic models will be based on the same platform, and that means that Honda can sell the hot-hatch 2016 Honda Civic Type-R here in the United States. Previously, it was only produced on the Euro-spec Civic platform, so it never made its way here.

The Civic Type-R will sit higher than the performance oriented Civic Si in the lineup. It will get a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine good for 310 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It will sprint from 0 to 60 in a mere 5.7 seconds. It will be able to hit a top speed of 167 mph. Expect a six-speed manual to be the only transmission.

In addition to an all-new powertrain, the Civic Type-R will also get some other upgrades. Expect an Adaptive Damper System for optimum traction at high speeds. Brakes are also upgraded to a set of high performance Brembo four-piston calipers and 350 mm drilled discs.

Beyond the performance credentials, expect the Honda Civic Type-R to get a host of unique equipment inside and out of the cabin. It will also get some unique body work to make it stand out from the rest of the Civic lineup and improve aerodynamics – we expect it to mirror the Euro-spec Civic Type-R with its large rear wing spoiler, big front splitter, and other aesthetic variations from the standard Civic models.
