The 2017 Civic Type R features the most powerful engine ever offered in a Honda production vehicle in America. The Type R's 2.0-liter 16-valve i-VTEC® DOHC direct-injected, turbocharged powerplant advances performance on multiple fronts with a peak output of 306 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm.

The Civic Type R, available of Honda of Grays Harbor near Olympia, WA, is the absolute pinnacle of Civic performance, and ranks as the fastest Honda production automobile ever offered in America, with a track top speed of approximately 170 mph.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is made by Honda of America Mfg. at its Anna, Ohio, engine plant using domestic and globally sourced parts. Completed engines are shipped to Honda of the U.K. Manufacturing in Swindon, England, where the Type R is manufactured. Specifically engineered for direct injection and turbocharging, with an ultra-lightweight forged steel crankshaft and forged steel connecting rods, the Type R powerplant is designed to offer maximum torque output in the mid-rpm range to provide instantly accessible power.

Offered exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission, the high-strength gearbox offers a short-throw shift action and closely spaced ratios tailored to suit the 2.0-liter turbo's power delivery. A driver-selectable rev-matching feature smooths high performance upshifts and downshifts, and to help put the power to the ground, a helical limited-slip front differential is standard.

Though the Civic Type R offers impressive performance, the efficient engine and transmission, along with excellent aerodynamics and low running resistance, result in EPA fuel economy ratings1 of 22/28/25 city/highway/combined mpg.
