This Performance Beast Welcomes a New Color and Useful Interior Updates

The Civic Type R is Honda’s most powerful production car, and it sure looks the part. With Honda’s immense success and storied racing heritage, the initial launch of the Type R was highly anticipated. In fact, early demand was so high that some dealers marked the car up by as much as $10,000.

The Type R was designed to appeal to a younger audience. More specifically, Honda marketed the car toward enthusiasts and racing aficionados. It’s essentially a hot hatch for those who prioritize driving dynamics and have a desire to stand out among the crowd. Honda banked on young people’s social media efforts to share and promote the car due to its compelling performance and outrageous styling cues.

The Civic was completely redesigned for the 2016 model year and the Type R variant joined the lineup in 2017, along with the Civic Si and hatchback models. Since then, the Type R has remained relatively unchanged. Since it debuted, this Honda has broken numerous records at some of the most legendary tracks, including Nürburgring.

In our compact car rankings, the 2019 Honda Civic holds a position near the top. It comes in sedan, coupe, and hatchback variants. In addition to the high-performance Type R, Honda offers a less expensive, performance-oriented Civic Si model.
