If you've always thought that the Civic needed more power and a bigger wing, then Honda has read your mind for 2018 with the all-new Type-R. It also happens to be one of the best hot hatches in America, but can it beat the Golf R or Focus RS? That depends on how much you value all-wheel-drive which Honda deliberately skipped for the Type-R in order to save weight, improve handling and deliver shockingly good fuel economy for a performance car. Until we can get our hands on one for a full week, enjoy our first stab at the 306 horsepower Honda.

0-30 : 2.1 Seconds
0-60 : 5.3 Seconds
1/4 Mile : Not Tested
60-0 Braking : 110 Feet

Note: I miss spoke in the comparison section of this video, when comparably equipped and factoring in missing equipment, the civic is $6000-$6500 less expensive than a Volkswagen Golf, not $11,000 as mentioned in this video.

      My God . without a point and comma the man. I have not yet driven the other offers but for me it is like this: This Type R is a single sensation in the price-performance ratio. For the first time on operating temperature does not want to off the leash. The ergonomics are excellent. on a perfect road, the fun is incredible. Thank you HONDA.

      This car is awesome, though i think they should do a few things to make it more palatable to people like me. I would use this car every day, so i would say if this car lost the wing, went down to 18 inch rims, and increased the fuel capacity, this would be winner!!!

      The type r and golf r are about the same price once you leave the dealer. It's worth noting you get a lot more car out of the golf per dollar.

      Lose the transition lenses , its very strange to adress an audience with sunglasses on. If i didnt want to see this car so badly i would have immediately left this video based on the shades lol. Seriously though its very strange.

      Personally, the color and the "go-fast-badges/air foil" could find another home. I guess a sleeper is what I'd be looking for.

      Shame that Honda doesn't have any sports cars that are not front wheel drive and looking like it was designed by a 15 year old.

      Your videos are WAY to long. I want to click on many of your videos, but they are VERY long. Sometimes I pass for that reason.

      Congrats to Honda for putting out one of the butt-ugliest cars of all time... and also for leaving out a much-needed AWD drivetrain.

      the golf R sucks, it looks the most boring standard car ever compared to its rivals, the civic type is an engineering masterpiece for its price and it looks outrageous.......and i love it

      I think the Si also has the separate steering assist motor on the rack as well, no?

      Used to think this design was too much but i realized it is atually made well b.c it looks like a mech car out of a manga or something ... worst thing is, it looks lik you shouldnt be driving it if youre older than 30 years old but im not sure how many ppl under the age of 30 can just go out and purchase a 35k car
