Hottest Hatch EVER !!

Is the 2016 Honda Civic Type R too much car for the road?

Its been a while since last Honda Type R, and its back with a bang with TURBO!

It looks like it was worth the wait.

Backing up all of that go-fast bodywork is Hondas new 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo four-cylinder engine. It sends 305 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a six-epeed manual transmission.

This will get the car going from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.

Breathtaking !
Gorgeous 19-inch alloy wheels are almost able to distract away from the air vents exiting behind the front wheels, but even they arent as eye catching as the enormous rear wing.

This, and the rear diffuser set into the bumper, add tangible levels of downforce at speed.

The interior is dominated by stunning red sports seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. Other highlights include the Type-R specific metal gear knob, and the G-Force meter. All this sportiness doesnt mean that its impractical though – it offers five doors for easy access to the cabin, and the regular model has a near-500-litre boot.

Vehicle purist will love it, for it being only stick shift. And the gear shift is beautiful as it can get, the best of its kind.

You feel as if you have the full control of the vehicle, as to how it moves.

Well isnt that what you want in any car ?

Other upgrades include stiffer suspension , Brembo brakes , and an R button , which activates sportier settings for the engine and electric power steering.

Honda still hasnt confirmed the mother of all Civic for the U.S. and, admittedly, the hatchback body style used by the Type R isnt available in USA yet.

This car has for sure made all the other similar cars look silly for sure.

Its indeed a great car and I am sure every Honda lover will be pleased with this car once they get behind this beauty.
