The Civic Type R combines power with an athletic styling, making it a solid option if you like to have ample power under the hood of your car. For the 2019 model year, this model has seen some updates. Here, we take a look at what you can expect from the updated 2019 Honda Civic Type R.
Some of the most notable chances to the Type R can be seen in its cabin. This performance-oriented vehicle has larger cupholders in the center console, better steering-wheel-mounted controls, and an indicator light on the electronic parking brake. It also includes physical buttons and a volume knob, which the outgoing Type R didn’t offer.
New color option
For the 2019 model year, the Type R has a new blue-gray paint color called Sonic Gray Pearl. This color is new to the American market, but has been available in Europe since the hot hatch’s debut.
As you might expect from such a performance-focused vehicle, the Type R offers a fierce powertrain. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine puts out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired to a six-speed manual transmission with no automatic transmission option. This allows the focus to stay on providing you with the best possible driving experience.
