The fastest Civic came here. The tenth generation Civic promises to be the most powerful of its kind. It is also the fastest front production car on the market today. With a power of 306 horsepower, the new comes to the United States for the first time. Over the past 25 years, Honda has made lightweight versions ready for the R-type race of its powerful vehicles. These cars landed in Europe, Japan and Australia mainly in many parts of the world, but not in the United States. Now, the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R will be sold in the country.
Exterior and Interior
If we talk about the exterior appearance of the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R, it will have a Hatchback look, while the rest of the 10th generation Civic family will traditionally be offered as a four-door, two-door body style saloon . Honda is tackling some markets with the only car, and targeted competitors will likely be Ford Focus RS, Subaru WRX STI and Volkswagen Golf R. The car will have similarities with its previous version but will be slightly updated in the segment of front defender ventilation, dual lip spoilers, front bumper air curtains, side skirts and rear spoiler, front and rear lighting. Another feature of the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R will be a triple exhaust tip mounted in the center of the rear bumper with a more aggressive stance. The wheels will be bigger by measuring 19 inches and in each of them you will get a Brembo brake caliper that makes us wait until the final version comes with 4-piston calipers and probably 13.7-inch ‘before.
The R-type interior of the 10th generation will look like the 2018 Honda Civic type R of the new generation, but with a recognizable red sports interior with plenty of carbon fiber and rounded aluminum inserts with bucket seats that offer safety and comfort as well as a good driving position. What we believe will be stolen from the R-type, which has yet to see the light of the US market, are digital readings, which were the most important in the 2015 model, but probably mitigated for the 2018 model, then many dials that will probably be the current Civic, a large touch screen in the center console and an independent heating screen. All this will be well-rounded and packed in this powerful vehicle that has not yet surprised to wait anxiously the Americans.
The latest 2018 Honda Civic Type R is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can produce 306 horsepower at 6500 rpm and a pure torque of 2,500 to 4,500 rpm. 306 horses seem to have a lot of power to cross the front wheels of any car but Honda engineers have developed many tricks inside to keep it on track. The UK manufactured the 2018 Honda Civic Type R can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 5.7 seconds and has a top speed of 272 km / h. Along the way, this machine is rated at 28 mpg on the highway, 22 mpg in the city and 25 mpg combined, according to CarThrottle.

The European version of the new 2018 Honda Civic Type R debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in March. It will be produced in the UK and we can expect it to reach the market in July. If we talk about the American version, it first in New York in April, when sales began on June 14. The price will be $ 34,775 for the US market, which is a decent price for this beast. This price includes the destination and handling costs of the vehicle. It is interesting to note that the first type R model is sold for $ 200,000 and that all the money went to the Pediatric Brain Tumors Foundation, the Honda group has been working since 1991. The person who bought this first model wanted to remain anonymous. In the Canadian automobile, July 14 will take place in the market and will have an MSRP of $ 40,890 (plus $ 1,595 for freight).
