2019 Honda Civic Type R Review
Drawing inspiration from top-notch racing cars, the 2019 Honda Civic Type R will turn your everyday drive around Atlantic City and Egg Harbor into an exciting time!
Dive into our 2019 Civic Type R review below to learn about this car’s well-crafted design, performance specs, and the cutting-edge technology it comes with before coming to Boardwalk Honda for a test drive of this unique variation of the Civic.
Stylish & Aerodynamic Design
With the blend of eye-catching style and a body engineered with an aerodynamic profile, the exterior of the Honda Civic Type R is both made for looks and performance.
This hatchback has a light yet stiff chassis and sits on top of 20-inch alloy wheels. The aggressive front end features LED headlights and gives the car a race-ready appeal. It also is designed to help circulate airflow and keep the engine cool with its front fender vents. In the back, there’s a center-mounted, triple outlet exhaust.
The vortex generators that are above the back window will move the air towards the wing spoiler to help improve the car’s stability at higher speeds and while cornering. With the position of the stylish wing spoiler near the height of the roof, it creates downforce for exhilarating performance while the rear diffuser reduces the drag for efficient driving.
All in all, the engineering that has gone into the design of the 2019 Civic Type R makes it a stable and swift car to drive.
Combined with its body, the Civic Type R also has a powertrain equipped for athletic performance. The track-ready 2.0L VTEC® turbocharged engine dishes out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission with Rev-Match Control and a helical limited-slip differential for a confident and fun driving experience.
The agile yet smooth ride you’ll experience while behind the wheel is thanks to various systems, including the Adaptive Damper System, which controls the responsiveness of the suspension.
An Exquisitely Designed Interior
While you grip the leather-wrapped steering wheel, push down on the sport pedals, and maneuver the aluminum shift knob inside the 2019 Honda Civic Type R, you’ll be provided with an extremely comfortable ride. The uniquely designed high-bolstered sport seats feature a red and black suede-effect fabric and double red stitching for unmatched style.
With the dual-zone automatic climate control system, you and your front passenger can each personally adjust the temperature controls to your ideal setting.
