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.

      I like the big spoiler! Looks surprisingly good for a hatchback.

      Typical Japanese marketing is to make the consumer beg and then charge arm and a leg for "special editions." Just wait. There will be a more sleeper looking one. They'll just charge more for less. Imagine that.

      The wing may be gaudy, but it's functional. Losing it would be tampering with the integrity of the car. I'll admit it's overstyled, but it's also one of the most fun cars I've ever driven. I'm planning on buying one this year.

      Well it does get hot under the sun, people complained about almost burning their hand, I guess wearing gloves or something could remedy it. Personally I like it

      What a load of BS this guy is talking about the fin, leave the fin alone. Oh one more thing, its very obviously you are sold out to Porsche, may be they give you a free cayenne to drive. DO NOT show Porsche car when reviewing a CIVIC!!! what a sold out soul you are!!!

      I don't understand why all these car reviewers knock the wing. I guess they don't know crap about cars in the hot hatch segment because wings are known to be on hot hatches. Idiots

      Type R is not a sleeper. If you think a wing is embarassing, this isnt the car for you.

      Like Scotty always says the best thing about Honda's are their engines with the manual transmission. Honda's got weak automatic transmission and those who drove Honda Odyssey should know.
