We take a look at the 2019 Honda Civic Type R because why not

The Honda Civic Type R isn’t the best-selling Honda, but it’s certainly the one we all love. And so, for 2019, we take another look at the Honda Civic Type R, Honda’s absolute flagship. 

A 306 hp engine for the 2019 Honda Civic Type R

Under the hood of the new 2019 Honda Civic Type R can be found a powerful 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 306 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is paired exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission and provides a rev-matching system to ensure high-level performance, especially on the track.

That said, the 2019 Honda Civic Type R is a car that was designed as much for the road as for the track. With the maximum torque being available between 2,500 rpm and 4,500 rpm, Honda Civic Type R owners will always have ample power under their right foot in any situation. In addition, the gearbox benefits from a new single mass flywheel that reduces clutch inertia by 25% compared to the previous model offered in Europe.

In addition to its powerful engine, the new Civic Type R benefits from exclusive adjustments for its springs, shock absorbers and bearings, as well as a new two-axle front suspension configuration that’s aimed at reducing torque steer and improving handling.

Based on the Honda Civic Hatchback, the Type R is a lot stiffer with a 38% increase in torsional rigidity and a 45 % increase in bending rigidity that ensure that the car will not only respond more accurately but will also be more stable. The Civic Type R is also lighter by about 16 kilograms compared to the Hatchback model.
