2017 Honda Civic Type-R Denver CO

Coming soon to Planet Honda! Some vehicles get us excited to drive and other vehicles just excite us by simply existing. The 2017 Honda Civic Type-R in Denver, CO is one of the latter.

Type-R Styling

The performance hatch is rightfully tagged with Type-R in every spot that makes sense. The domineering front fascia of the Honda sets the tone for the whole vehicle. A wide stance that’s low to the ground with a grille that looks like a gaping mouth or black hole, ready to eat the road. The headlights are mixed in, in a way that can only be describe as fluid. The vehicle as a whole offers interesting color schemes with one main color and bright, tasteful highlights. The spoiler, finishes it off, letting you know that this is a predator on the road.

Getting into the Type-R, you’ll be welcomed with contrasting, bright and dark colors, race-ready seats and an information cluster ideally designed for utility and aesthetics. Though a performance vehicle it is, you will not find yourself cramped as though the vehicle were holding onto you too tightly. It’s relaxed and lets you breathe as you tear down the road.

Honda Performance

There’s a reason why Honda fans are what they are. The performance vehicles that Honda has produced over the years have gotten people excited about vehicles in a way many can barely understand. They aren’t just people that watch Fast and Furious and then dream about it when they get behind the wheel. They want a vehicle that is real for an experience that is real.

This iteration of the Type-R is expected to produce 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque thanks to the 2.0L direct-injected turbo VTEC four-cylinder. This is the most powerful it has been to date. Paired with the engine is a six-speed manual. Together, this set up allows you to go from 0 to 62 in 5.7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 168 mph. To control all that power, 13.8-inch Brembo brakes and 19-inch wheels with ultra-low-profile 235/35 tires have been added to it. It also utilizes the dual axis strut front suspension and more importantly the +R button that tightens steering and offers better throttle response. We hope you’re as excited as we are.
