 Take a quick look:

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is sporty and gets its power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4.

US-spec output is set at 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque, all of which heads to the front wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission – no automatics or CVTs here. The 13.8-inch Brembo front brakes help bring the car to a stop.

The CTR will arrive only as the hatchback. It has exaggerated air vents in the front, fender flares on the side and a big ol’ wing out back and has three tailpipes!

The Civic Type-R will come with three different modes: Comfort, Sport (standard) and +R. Swapping modes will change the steering weight, throttle response, stability control, adaptive dampers and for enthusiasts who have a hard time with heel-toe to enable automatic rev-matching.

The interior isn’t too different from the regular Civic hatchback, except some  sport seats. There’s a leather wrapped steering wheel, an aluminum shift knob and pedals, a red gauge cluster and a Type R plaque on the center console. The headlights, taillights, fog lights and turn signals are all LED.

The 2017 Civic Type R is offered in a single trim, Touring. Standard tech includes a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as satellite radio, HD Radio and Pandora compatibility. A 540-watt, 12-speaker sound system is standard, as well as automatic climatic control.
The 2017 Civic Type-R goes on sale in late spring, and the price tag is expected to hover in the mid-$30,000
