Months ago, we saw the Honda Civic Type R Prototype, but we knew it was just that… a prototype, not the finished product. Well now, Honda has unveiled the production model of North America’s first-ever Honda Civic Type R at the Geneva Motor Show, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic with its incredible style and specifications.

The Civic Type R is known for being an extremely sporty and powerful hatchback version of the Civic, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have a fun interior outfitted with plenty of great features as well. For instance, you will have a display audio screen with navigation and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to keep you entertained while on the go. The audio system is also outfitted with both XM and HD Radio compatibility, and you’ll be able to hear it all through a 540-watt, 12-speaker premium sound system.
We’ll be going into more detail on the available information about the 2017 Honda Civic Type R in the coming days, and of course we’ll fill you in with the details on fuel efficiency as soon as they become available, but until then feel free to give us a call and reserve your 2017 Honda Civic Type R model today.
