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.

Interior additions

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.

Powerful performance

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.

If you’re in the market for a family vehicle, the Honda lineup has three solid options you should consider. Three 2019 Honda models, the 2019 Honda Odyssey, 2019 Honda Accord, and 2019 Honda CR-V, were recently named on the Edmunds.com Best Family Cars of 2019 list for their respective segments.

According to Edmunds.com, the 2019 Accord earned its title as Best Family Sedan due to its roomy interior and trunk, along with its standard Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies, which help keep you confident out on the road.

For the 2019 Odyssey, its Best Family Minivan title was awarded because of its Magic Slide™ seats, Cabin Watch™ technology, and Honda VAC®.

The 2019 CR-V was also recognized for its Honda Sensing® availability, along with its ample cargo space, solid fuel-efficiency numbers, and available hands-free rear liftgate. This allowed it to be named the Best Small Family SUV title.

To determine the winners of each segment, editors at Edmunds.com put eligible vehicles through extensive, engineer-led tests. Each vehicle is then rated using more than 30 criteria in five main categories – driving performance, comfort, interior, utility, and technology.
