2018 Honda Civic Type R Review, Release Date, Price, Pros Cons
A few five-door are more bold of 2018 Honda Civic Type R. With 310 horses transferred all on the front wheels, a manual transmission efficiency for accuracy and aerodynamic appendages that would not be out of place in a race car, it guarantees a thrilling driving experience and performance out of print: suffice it to say that, in the course of our testing, we passed the 265 mph. Despite this, the car offers a roomy interior (but with so-so) and a large trunk; and, if you go plan, does not consume too much either. Where you pay pledge is in the comfort, because the Honda Civic Type R also has a good room amenities.
2018 Honda Civic Type R Overview
Will be short lived, this five-door “supercattiva” arrived in showrooms in mid-2015: already near the end of the 2017 should be replaced by the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, presented a few days ago at the Paris Motor Show in the form of prototype (here the news). Under a completely different body, however, the future Type R will adopt the same engine and gearbox of the current model. Thank goodness, we say: the sophisticated racing mechanics is the raison d’etre of this car, which derives from a peaceful and spacious saloon (notably the very large trunk, by ben 498 liters) but is a sporty “toasts”, which gives the ultimate in circuit. On the road, however, the pleasure of riding a thoroughbred is a bit muffled from the relative comfort and noise bumps on uneven. This model continues the saga begun in the years 90, but the Civic sports marks an important technological breakthrough: for the first time is powered by a turbocharged engine. The exciting rumble racing of older models, which pushed maliciously beyond the 8000 rpm, the result is a bit muffled, but not too much. And the 2.0 (paired with a excellent maneuverability) ensures superior performance and top notch for a five-door of this price. Also, it is better exploited (even at low revs, pushing really hard from 2500 rpm and above) and not undermines the behavior of the car, which has very powerful brakes and tireless and that (thanks to the showy front suspension and aerodynamic appendages “double joint”), remains stable even at high speed. There is also a button + r: press the dampers stiffen yet (of 30%) and the electronic controls shall not. You go fortissimo, but serves steering effort, certainly not lightweight, has obvious reactions and (despite the limited slip differential, which limits the “skid marks”) the gas must be dosed carefully. The 2018 Honda Civic Type R has a quite good: the price includes the Navigator, the parking sensors with retro camera, lane departure warning and blind spot mirrors sensors. All these elements help road safety of a car that has proven to be protective even in case of a crash (in EuroNCAP testing of 2012 had gotten five stars).
2018 Honda Civic Type R Interior, features
2018 Civic Type R dashboard and controls
Red and black front seats, with built-in headrests and large side panels for traction when cornering side taken in speed, have the rigid seat and 2 cm lower than that of other Civic: it lowers the center of gravity, and the driver feels better on the car’s behaviour. Complete the very finest Motorsports 2018 Honda Civic Type R leather steering wheel with red inserts (same color as the ambient lighting) and the pedals and gear lever knob (in front of which there is a numbered nameplate). The console facing the driver hosts the multimedia system with 7 touch screen “, which works correctly but is not very well integrated. The dashboard is divided into two parts: in the classical position there are the tachometer and the fuel level indicator and water temperature; the speedometer and the on-board computer (which also indicates the forces that develop during acceleration, braking and cornering) are higher in the digital display, near the windshield. Overall, it’s a solution that does not incorporate all the information you need at a glance; among other things, the analog dashboard (and other items in plastic of the Interior) are just OK.
Unlike other Civic, the Type R is approved only for four people; but there is plenty of space, so you are traveling really comfy. The situation is different if those sitting in front of it has a stocky build: seats with side panels protruding far can annoy.
Trunk. The battery compartment is accessible to a wide opening with threshold to 70 cm above the ground, is large and covered with some care; There is also an undercurrent high 20 cm, and reclining on the couch you create a paino devoid of steps. Compared to the Civic men
2018 Honda Civic Type R Test Drive
In town. At low revs the Honda Civic Type R 2.0 responds promptly and without being brusque (although lets some vibration), and has soft implants and the brakes, as well as being very effective and well modulated, also have the function of automatic stop antitamponamento (up to 30 km/h). In “retro”, then, come in handy camera and alarm in case of incoming vehicles. I mean, would a sports suitable for traffic, if it weren’t for rigid suspensions, the risk of scratching the front spoiler very protruding against a sidewalk and, if you are a bit shy, being always in the spotlight with a body so conspicuous.
Out of town. Relatively little thirsty if you are travelling by exploiting little horses, 2.0 is ready to lash out (with turbo whistle in the background) at the slightest pressure on the accelerator; both the acceleration using the engine up to 7000 RPM limit, both the midrange shooting are impressive. On the road, even if you want to drive with some decision, should not enter the driving mode + R: the car is still very easy to handle, has a high grip and rolla soon but still less on Fund irregularities and requires less steering corrections (which is never light); powerful braking, that resists even driving “assault”.
On the highway. At 130 km/h in sixth, the tachometer marks 3100: a regime which guarantees consumption more than acceptable for a “wild beast” (11.1 km/liter), while enabling quick bursts if necessary without having to switch to lower ratios (the 2.0 pushes like a train from 2500 RPM). The car is also very stable, but long journeys require a spirit of tolerance: the cockpit is not silent (because of some aerodynamic, as well as tyre rolling noise) and you can hear every little patch of asphalt.

2018 Honda Civic Type R Cons
- Comfort. On uneven is “dance”, and the noise (including tyre rolling) is obvious.
- Reactions to the Steering. In acceleration and on uneven, the steering wheel should be held firmly.
- Seats. The front ones are very enveloping: a bit tight for those who have a physical “abundant”.
- Tools. The dashboard is in two parts: distract, and readability is not the best.
- Visibility. Towards the back area isn’t seen much (and lacks the rear wiper); even the left a-pillar disturbs in tight corners.
