After a year of guessing following the prototype’s debut in Paris, we finally get the whole story on the first Honda Civic Type R to arrive in the US. And the news is good. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R gets its power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4. US-spec Output is set at 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, all of which heads to the front wheels by way of a six-speed manual transmission — no automatics or CVTs here, folks. The 13.8-inch Brembo front brakes help bring the car to a stop.
