Honda can celebrate mission success as it enhances the Type R world class driving experience in the areas of Handling & braking; Ride quality; Styling; Technology and Driver involvement
The Type R exterior styling is aggressive and gets a lot of attention but there is some serious aerodynamic functionality behind the design. The new grille design allows for better cooling with a reshaped front spoiler for improved downforce. The new enhancements continue to maintain the reputation of the Honda Civic Type R as the fastest production front wheel drive car in the world.
Performance starts with a 306-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-4 under the hood with an impressive 0-60 mph in the low five-second range while delivering a solid 25 mpg combined. All that power is channeled to the front wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission that is smooth and fun to drive.The handling, especially when accelerating around turns made my adrenaline flow.
This is a car I wish I could have taken to the track. We will have to do this with the 2021 version. There are three drive modes that vary the suspension firmness, steering and throttle response.Handling, acceleration, cornering and braking combine to make you feel secure and confident behind the wheel. If you want a superb driving experience then this is the car for you.
The interior of this car is hot, red hot! The red and black interior look sharp and the aluminum shifter and sport pedals make the interior a real beauty. The seats are really comfortable and I felt really secure when taking some sharp corners. The steering wheel compliments the interior well and the grip feels really good in your hands. Everything is designed for performance and comfort.
Honda has a great suite of safety features. Standard Honda Sensing includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist system and Road Departure Mitigation. Vehicle Stability Assist and other special braking features are included as well.
There is a reason Civic finished 2020 as the #1 car in America for the 5th straight year and #1 compact car in America for the 11th straight year. The 2020 Honda Civic Type R combines performance, power, style and overall fun at a phenomenal price point.
