2024 Honda Civic Type R review

The 2024 Honda Civic Type R is the essence of a hot hatch, combining exceptional performance with a stylish interior. It leverages the strengths of the mainstream Civic’s platform while maintaining its well-earned appeal as a performance machine. It also offers tons of cargo space for its class.

The Civic Type R boasts a potent 315-horsepower turbocharged inline-four engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission. It accelerates quickly from a standstill and when passing on the highway, and it can zoom from zero to 60 mph in fewer than 5 seconds. This Honda also offers Comfort, Sport, and +R drive modes, providing flexibility and stability on rough or damp roads.
