2019 Honda Civic Type R Update

Civic Type R - Elyria, OH

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.

The Honda Civic has many options available, from coupe and sedan to hot hatch. Stop by Jack Matia Honda to see our Civic inventory and the rest of the Honda models.

Three Honda Models Earn Best Retained Value Awards

Everyone knows that when you buy a car, it starts losing its value immediately. This is called depreciation. However, not all cars depreciate at the same rate. Every year, Edmunds evaluates new car models and estimates which vehicles will hold onto their value longer than others and awards those models Best Retained Value Awards.

This year, three Honda vehicles came away with the top prize in their respective segments: the 2018 Honda Accord, the Civic, and the CR-V. This means buyers who choose these models can feel confident that they will get more money back into their pockets when the time comes to trade it in or sell it.

“Buying a new car is a huge financial decision, and our 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to help shoppers discover the brands and vehicles that can help them get the most out of their investment,” said Avi Steinlauf, Edmunds’ CEO. “This year’s winners underscore a commitment to quality and reliability and are good bets to hold their value over the course of ownership.”

In the Best Retained Value Awards, Edmunds’ analysts study years of market data to determine which model are expected to have the highest projected residual value after five years. So, if you are looking for a new car that will give you a lot of value, a Honda is always a great choice.
