2019 Honda Civic Type R Review
If you’ve got a need for speed, you’ve come to the right place. The speed demons of Panama City, Springfield, and Callaway can rely on the 2019 Honda Civic Type R to get their pulse pumping.
If you’re looking to tear up the streets in your very own race car, our team here at Honda of Bay County thinks that the 2019 Honda Civic Type R might be the vehicle for you. Read our review to find out more about its power, handling, and design!
Designed to Dominate
The hair-raising exterior style of the Civic Type R is more than just eye-catching-its advanced aerodynamics also optimize performance by reducing drag.
An underbody spoiler kit provides greater stability and grip at high speeds as it forces airflow to the rear of the vehicle, where you’ll find vortex generators. These provide better cornering and stability by channeling airflow to the rear spoiler. The spoiler then creates downforce to reduce drag, making for a more exhilarating high-speed performance.
The 2019 Honda Civic Type R is built with a lightweight chassis and all-aluminum hood. These give the vehicle an agile “light on your feet” feel, so you can better chase down the competition.
The interior will help you rule the roadways, too! It has unique red and black suede-effect front seats. Not only are they comfortable for your everyday commutes, but they’re rigid enough to keep you firmly in place when tackling tight corners.
Power and Handling Meant for a Racetrack
The standard 2.0L turbocharged engine is backed by 70 years of engineering. With this engine, you can rip through the roads with 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which makes for smoother shifts and a more comfortable ride.
The 2019 Honda Civic Type R is also equipped with a limited-slip differential and adaptive damper system. These will give you race-tuned stability through tight corners and when cruising down the highway.
The drive mode selector in the Civic Type R will give you even more control. Whether you’re just out for a Sunday drive or you’re testing your limits on the track, this sedan will customize the ride to give you what you desire. It has three modes-+R, Sport, and Comfort-so take your pick! It will adjust the throttle response, retune the suspension, and optimize the steering to give you a comfortable and exhilarating ride.
When you’re ready to peel out, the center-mounted triple-outlet exhaust lets out an iconic growl. It’ll make an impression on everyone you leave in the dust.
Technology in the 2019 Honda Civic Type R
No matter where the race may lead, you can stay connected in this car. The high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, so once you connect your compatible smartphone, you’ll have access to all your favorite apps and music.
On top of that, the 540-watt premium audio system has 12 speakers and includes a subwoofer, so everyone will know what you’re jamming to when you win the next race. Plus, the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, which is standard on the 2019 Honda Civic Type R, includes Honda HD Digital Traffic. Together, they’ll help you find the finish line and make sure you get there first!
There’s also a customizable meter display screen. On the track, it’ll keep you aware of G-force, lap times, and throttle input. Plus, it will keep you up to date with turn-by-turn directions and maintenance reminders during your everyday drives.
