The Most Powerful Honda Civic Ever: the 2023 Honda Civic Type R


As popular as the Honda Civic has been over the years, it's known more for its composure than for raw power. With the much-anticipated return of the Honda Civic Type R, all that's about to change. As the most potent Honda Civic to date, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R has a base MSRP of $42,895 before destination and handling charges. 

What Distinguishes the All-New Honda Civic Type R? 

When you visit our Honda dealership near Los Angeles, CA, to see the Honda Civic Type R, you'll find that it stands out from its brethren in several noticeable ways. Its engine and transmission are the most obvious ways the hatchback is distinct from other Honda Civic trims. 

A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine powers the Honda Civic Type R, and the powerplant is exclusive to this model. The engine delivers a stout 315 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. An engaging six-speed manual transmission pairs with the engine and routes power to the hatchback's front wheels. 

There are a few other things that distinguish the Honda Civic Type R, and they include: 

  • Rear wing 
  • Adaptive suspension 
  • Data-logging capabilities 
  • Brembo brakes 
  • Center exhaust with three outlets 
  • 19-inch summer tires 
  • Oil cooler 

Does the Hatchback Have Any Active Safety Equipment? 

While the car's engine and performance features are sure to deliver thrills, the Honda Civic Type R is similar to all the new Honda cars in our showroom in that it's outfitted with laudable advanced safety and driver-assistive features.
