Honda Civic Type R officially coming to Canada!


Great news for hot-hatch enthusiasts: The new Honda Civic Type R will be sold in Canada, the manufacturer confirmed. The exact release date has yet to be disclosed, however. Unveiled on April 2nd at the New York Auto Show alongside the tenth-generation Civic, the Honda Civic Type R has developed a huge following over the years, even though it remained unavailable in North America.

Producing 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L 4-cylinder VTEC turbocharged engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the Honda Civic Type R can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. For the record, the upcoming Ford Focus RS takes 4.6 seconds and the Volkswagen Golf R completes the sprint in 4.9 seconds.

“The long-awaited Civic Type R, slated to go on sale in Canada this summer with an MSRP in the low $40k range, is the first ever Type R-badged Honda to be sold in Canada. The Type R will feature a high performance 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain, substantially upgraded body and chassis, and other track-ready, Nürburgring-tuned and tested performance components. The 2017 Civic Type R [made] its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show on April 12, 2017.

The new Civic Type R, sharing the body style of the 5-door hatchback variant of the tenth-generation global Honda Civic platform, will be powered by a North American built 2.0-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged i-VTEC in-line 4-cylinder engine with peak ratings of 306 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm. The engine will be mated exclusively to a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission with rev matching capability – employing automatic throttle blips for smoother shifts and power delivery. A new single-mass flywheel reduces clutch inertia by 25 percent versus the previous (European) Type R and a lower final gear ratio is employed to improve acceleration response.” – Honda of Canada
