Honda Civic Type-R: officially the strongest ever with 330 hp

The Type-R of the previous generation Honda Civic kicked it up to 320 hp and 400 Nm, so Honda can hardly help but give the new model some extra horsepower and newton meters. Thus, the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, a further development of the heart of the previous Type-R, squeezes out 330 hp and 420 Nm. So 10 hp and 20 Nm extra for Honda’s new top-Civic. As before, the power is unleashed on the front wheels only. Major competitor Volkswagen Golf GTI is basically 245 hp strong but delivers 300 hp as GTI Clubsport. If you stick your nose in the wind, you can almost smell the sweat of fear in Wolfsburg here. Honda Civic Type-R The 2.0 of the new Honda Civic Type-R gets a new turbo and is cooled better thanks to a grille that is no less than 48 percent larger than that of the previous model. The king of Civic-land stands on Michelin rubber specially developed for the car with a width of 26.5 centimeters. Honda says that the new Type-R has made significant steps compared to the previous model in aerodynamics, among other things. In addition, the throttle response should be more direct throughout the rev range, partly due to the arrival of a lighter flywheel. Honda’s hot hatch gets adaptive dampers and the Japanese give high praise about the shifting feel. The poker of the manual six-speed gearbox must be completely without a single creak, beep or unwanted resistance through the baking pattern. Underneath the Civic Type-R is an exhaust system with valves in the center of the three tailpipes that influence the sound. More Japanese praise for the Type-R? Secure. For example, the car must have improved straight-line stability at high speed and the braking system has been improved by, among other things, making the cooling of the braking system more efficient.
