A bunch of Hondas, a Miata, and a Volkswagen Corrado come together for this awesome track showdown.
One of our favorite hot hatches and your Uber driver's new car share an engine, but that's not the whole story.
They were the enthusiast cars of the 1980s. Does the old magic still work?
These new wheels are part of Honda's Japanese-market accessories for the Type R.
Honda tried to make a case for an automatic gearbox in the Type R, but weight ruled it out.
Here's what the small middle exhaust pipe on the Civic Type R actually does.
It's bigger than any previous Type R, with a 306-hp turbocharged engine. Is that sacrilege, or precisely what Soichiro would want?
That's $10,000 more than the Civic Si.
And that's the same price for either a coupe or sedan.
If you have a new Civic sedan or coupe, pull out the rubber matt at the bottom of the center console.
Why wait for the Si sedan to show up on dealer floors when you can make your own right now?
With a 7:43.80 lap time, the 306-horsepower turbocharged Type R snatches front-drive victory from the hottest VW GTI.
For the first time, the Civic Si gets a turbo. We think that's a good thing.
The Civic Si gets a slight power boost over its base-model brethren, but leaves plenty of room for the Type R at the top.
The hot hatch we've always wanted is finally here.
