New 2019 Honda Civic Type R Hatchback

The 2019 Honda Civic also gets all of the Honda Sensing safety technology as standard. That's a big improvement for a car that was already at the head of its class. At the beginning of the model year, five primary trim levels are available for the 2019 Honda Civic: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring.

The 2019 Honda Civic Type R may go down as one of Honda’s best creations, offering scintillating performance highlighted by a 306-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, a rev-matching 6-speed manual transmission and the best Honda suspension setup since the S2000 roadster. Based on the Civic hatchback, the Type R employs structural adhesives for improved rigidity and a unique front suspension that helps reduce unwanted torque steer. The Type R’s eye-popping styling has a functional purpose, or so Honda says, increasing downforce to aid with traction. With the Ford Focus RS due to expire, the Type R’s only real competition are the all-wheel-drive Subaru WRX STI and VW Golf R, neither of which is as easy to live with as the Type R.

Driving It

Driving Impressions

All too often, "hot-rod" versions of good compact cars wind up compromising the things we liked about the compact in the first place. Not so the 2019 Honda Civic Type R. Yes, it's quick: The 306-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder puts down power to the front wheels smoothly and, remarkably, without torque steer. Take it to a racetrack, flip the drive mode to +R, and it's as rewarding to drive as just about anything you could care to mention, practically egging you on to push its limits, and quicker than many of its all-wheel-drive competitors. Yet away from the track, on the daily commute, Honda hasn't forgotten that this is a Civic. The powerful engine also pours out plentiful torque, making it easy to drive in traffic. When the drive mode is in its Comfort setting, the ride is perfectly acceptable. In fact, maybe it's a little too civilized, as we'd like a bit more engine noise to filter through the triple-pipe exhaust system.
