Today we have good news and bad news for you.
Here’s the bad:
If you live in the United States, you can’t buy the 2016 Honda Civic Type R. That’s bad news because the Type R is more than just a spiffed-up Civic. It’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injected VTEC 4-cylinder speed demon that spits out 310 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque at just 2,500 rpm. It comes only with a 6-speed manual and can rocket from 0 to 62 in 5.7 seconds while on its way to a top speed of 167 mph.
The car is based on the European Civic, which differs from the U.S. version, so there’s no chance it will be sold here.
But here’s the good news:
The 2018 version will.
