Honda Civic Type R:
The Type R has taken the States by storm, with its amazing mix of performance and poise earning it a spot on our 2018 10Best Cars list. The lone powertrain is a turbo 2.0-liter inline-four that funnels 306 hp to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. A front-strut suspension—Honda calls it Dual Axis—eliminates the torque steer normally associated with high-powered front-drive vehicles. Navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 540-watt 12-speaker stereo are all standard.
What sets this Honda apart from other sport compacts is how it balances speed, body control, and outright cornering prowess with the day-to-day ride comfort that you would never expect given its rubber-band-like 30-series tires. Indeed, those 245/30ZR-20 Continental SportContact 6 performance treads offer seemingly no cushion for the spindly 20-inch aluminum wheels, and they’re pricey at $320 a pop. Yet, despite having significantly stiffer springs, dampers, bushings, and anti-roll bars than even the new Civic Si, the Type R traverses pockmarked pavement better than nearly any other car with this much stick. Even with its driving-mode selector in its full-attack +R setting—which slightly weights up the steering over the lesser Sport and Comfort modes and puts the three-position adaptive dampers in their firmest tune—the ride is fully livable. Combined with a high level of standard amenities and wonderfully comfortable and supportive sport seats (available in red cloth only), there’s little compromise to having a Type R as your sole mode of transport.
This being the age of the turbocharger, we won’t dwell on this hot Honda’s lack of a spine-tingling naturally aspirated engine. The R’s boosted 2.0-liter inline-four sounds like a steroid-enhanced vacuum cleaner at high rpm and is a bit too quiet overall. But it is a super-smooth powerhouse, churning out a stout 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and ripping to its modest 7000-rpm redline with zeal. Lots of neat chirps and whooshes can be heard from the big snail under the hood, and the trick three-outlet exhaust keeps droning and booming sounds to a minimum, even though short final gearing has the engine turning 3500 rpm at 75 mph in top gear. We bettered the car’s 22-mpg city rating by 1 mpg in our overall driving and surpassed its 28-mpg highway figure by the same margin on our 75-mph highway test loop.
The aluminum shift ball atop the Type R’s standard six-speed manual transaxle is a close reach from the leather-wrapped steering wheel. It is as rewarding to snick through the shifter’s gates as it is easy to burn your hand on after the car has been sitting outside on a sunny day.
