The Honda Civic Type R is the car enthusiasts have wanted for over two decades ever since the Acura Integra Type R was last sold here. The Type R has the record for a front wheel drive car around the Nurburgring, setting a time of 7:40.03. To make a run like that possible Honda has added a lot of aerodynamic ground effects and a massive rear wing. This is what makes this car a bit controversial, is it a car that appeals to a wide demographic. It certainly has a polarizing design.Powering the Honda Civic Type R is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder with 306hp and 295lb.-ft. of torque, with all the power going to the front wheels through a manual 6-speed manual transmission and limited slip front differential. The Honda Civic Type R starts at $41,000 in Canada and represents a solid value considering how well made the car feels.

      Sure, you can daily drive it. Just keep in mind it's going to get poor MPGs, premium fuel & high insurance rates. If those things concern you, then just buy an Civic SI.

      Performance is outstanding for a 2.0 lts, maybe the wing is too much for people above 35 and the dashboard way too generic.

      *If you want a non-suped up basic version just get a Honda civic lx hatchback. I love mine.*

      Would not pay 30k without a wing on the type R. Who wants a gt3 without a wing. Gt3s are suppose to look like the gt cars not highway cruisers

      Hype? LMFAO...Honda has hit rock bottom. Type R is nothing more than an enlarged Toyota Prius with a turbo and GINORMOUS STI wing replica...yea, a 5yr old's 2d drawing of a sports car looks better. Hideous Hunch Back of Notre Dame...

      You have to admire the crazy styling of this car, but over all for me I think its ugly from a few angles. Also I believe its cost £35000 in the UK which is very expensive. Still it is a quality made product from Honda.

      I’m 51. I would own one. I would prefer AWD but it’s not a deal breaker. I own a 2013 BMW 328i xdrive. Great car. Very reliable and well made. Plenty quick and it drives great. This Honda is nice.

      Honda is a very capable engine builder. Look up the Honda RC166 racing motorcycle. That thing is amazing! That's why I believe in Honda.

      Best car to learn manual on is a diesel VW. The low end torque makes it difficult to stall it out.

      Now that I have a type R, what I thought I would hate about the electric parking brake is actually love. When you get in the car and put on your seatbelt, tap once on brake hold and the parking brake will automatically release once you start moving. Every time you come to a stop, the car will hold its brakes with the brake lights on without your foot on the brake pedal. Once you start moving it releases. When you park the car, the moment you remove your seatbelt, the parking brake automatically engages. Pretty awesome.

      Hate on it all you want but unless you are making the payments on it, keep your comments to yourself if you are criticizing someone who has one.

      The wing of this type R has a function. Try to learn more about honda. It's not always the style.

      My favorite part is the wing, why would I want that gone, it makes it look so impressive and stylish, keep it as is, no changes except maybe some power things installed where its all manual now...
