Engine and Spec

The rumors said that the 2018 Honda Civic Type R will have new performance. It comes with special 2.0-liter with 4 cylinder and direct fuel injection, turbo-charging and VTEC variable valve timing. Though there is no exact information about the power, but it seems that the vehicle can produce power until 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. All those engine machines will be matched with six-speed manual transmission.

The manufacturer does not give you any automatic transmission because this system will make the vehicle heavier which can reduce the speed performance and fuel economic. Even more, the weight of the automatic transmission will also reduce the stability and balance of the vehicle. You can be happy because the manufacturer will give you nice torque steer with new Dual Axis Strut Front Suspension and even adding adaptive dampers all around. The fuel consumption is reducing. Based on EPA, the Honda Civic Type R will consume 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg in the highway also 25 mpg combined. It is enough for you of course. Moreover, this vehicle can reach speed from 0-60 mph with only 5.7 seconds and the highest speed up to 169 mph. It is satisfying, isn’t it?
