The Honda Track Monster Gets Focused Upgrades Including a New Data Logging App 

Honda’s hottest hatch is perfect for drivers who want to stand out. The 306-horsepower Honda Civic Type R screams for attention, with all kinds of bulges, scoops, vents, a front air dam, and a gigantic rear spoiler. 

Since its debut in 2017, the Type R has been targeted toward younger and more performance focused drivers, and those who prioritize an engaging driving experience over extraneous luxuries and frills. To that end, it remains one of the very few cars available only with a manual transmission. 

The 2020 Honda Civic holds one of the top spots in our compact car ranking, and is also available in tamer sedan, coupe, and hatchback variants. For those looking for a less extreme and more moderately priced performance model, there’s the Civic Si.

For 2020, changes to the Type R include a new Boost Blue paint color that makes it even harder to miss, along with ride and handling improvements, upgrades to brakes and engine cooling, and a new data logging app for recording lap times and other exploits. The Honda Sensing suite of electronic driver aids is now standard. 

In the following slides, we’ll take you through all of what’s new with the 2020 Honda Civic Type R.
