    Radical and Rapid 2018 Honda Civic Type R Goes On Sale
    Nov 2, 2017 - TORRANCE, Calif.
    After a blazing but abbreviated first model year, the Civic Type R accelerates into 2018 today following the June launch of the limited production run 2017 model. The first Civic Type R Honda ever sold in America, this hottest of hot hatchbacks has been widely praised for its dynamic poise and track prowess. The Civic Type R returns for 2018 with a Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $34,100 (excluding $890 destination and other charges).

    With a peak output of 306 horsepower (SAE net) and 295 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net) from its muscular 2.0-liter DOHC direct-injected VTEC Turbo® engine, the Civic Type R is the most powerful Honda ever sold in America. As before, the 2018 Type R is available in one fully equipped trim with a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission, limited slip differential, Adaptive Damper System and an ingenious dual-axis strut front suspension design that virtually eliminates torque steer.

    MSRP $34,100 Including $890 Destination Charge, $34,990


    EPA MPG Rating2(city/highway/combined) 22 / 28 / 25


    The Honda Civic Type R's Adaptive Damper System continually adjusts damping force at all four corners and is tied into the Three-Mode Driving System with comfort, sport and track-focused +R modes. The system modifies damper and throttle response along with steering assist, in accordance with the driver's chosen setting.

    Similar to many Civic trims, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R incorporates advanced in-vehicle connectivity and technologies as standard features. These features include Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and more, offering drivers a comfortable and convenient in-vehicle experience.

    Along with the in-vehicle connectivity features, the 2018 Civic Type R is also equipped with advanced safety features, including Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, Advanced 4-Channel ABS, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, and an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

    The 2018 Civic Type R for the U.S. market is produced exclusively in Honda's Swindon, UK plant with the engine produced in Anna, Ohio, using domestic and globally-sourced parts.

    Any official word on release dates?

    I wonder if the 2018 models will or won't get the # plate that the 2017 models did since they specifically say "limited production run 2017" in the press release.

    I have yet to see a CTR in person. Every dealer around me had one but they told me that thing didn't sit here 30 mins and someone bought it lol. Some dude drove like 10 hours to get one. I hope to see one at a meet or car show around here soon. It's the best looking Civic made IMO.

    I would be very surprised if dealers charge ADM on a second year model. Then again, anything is possible.

    They still get the plate...it's listed in the detailed specs. Literally no change other than year and price.

    I think this is good news for both folks who bought the 2017 and folks who wanted the 2018. For former, looks like no enhancements that would have made us to second guess that we should have waited. For latter the MSRP did not go up by much as am sure Honda could have easily raised MSRP by $1000+ due to the demand.

    As a 2017 owner, one thing that would have been a big bummer would have been if they released the Honda sensing features or better wheels/tires for daily driving.

    Cheers.
