In what concerns with the engine, you can expect to see a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with direct fuel injection, VTEC variable valve timing, and turbo-charging. This engine is capable of producing around 306 of horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque.

When you take a look inside at the 2018 Honda Civic Type R, you’ll immediately know what car it is. The red doesn’t fool you. And even if it did, all that aluminum inserts and carbon fiber used inside the cabin, and those sporty bucket seats, then you would know for sure.

Despite the shape of the seats, you can expect them to be extremely comfortable and with a great support for your back. The steering wheel will also change and will include leather with steeching, and the gear lever knob is also in the same style.

In terms of technology, there shouldn’t be a lot of changes when compared with the 2016 Honda Civic. It should obviously include a large touchscreen in the center console as well as separate heating display.
