When it comes to having fun behind the wheel, nothing beats the feeling of driving the up-for-anything Honda Civic. That’s why we can’t wait to get our hands on the 2018 Honda Civic Si and 2018 Honda Civic Type R—and they’re almost here.
For the first time ever, the 2018 Honda Civic Si will have a turbocharged engine. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine will deliver 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. The car will weigh less than the 2017 model as well, meaning you’ll get more out of every rev of the engine. This is a car built for those who love to feel the car respond to their every direction, which is why it’s only available with a six-speed manual transmission. Bigger brakes, stiffer chassis, lighter body, upgraded steering, sport-tuned suspension, adaptive damper system, and a limited-slip differential are all on hand to make this the best Honda Civic Si yet.
The arrival of the 2018 Honda Civic Type R here at Lodi Honda will certainly be something to celebrate. For years, the engineers at Honda have pulled out all the stops for their top-of-the-line Honda Civic Type R. But the car has only been sold in Europe and Japan, leaving us to admire it from afar—until this year. That’s right—the 2018 Honda Civic Type R will be the first Honda Civic Type R to be sold in the U.S. Don’t worry about choosing the right powertrain, there’s only one: a 306 horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine with a six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive. This stellar car will also feature a dual-axis front suspension designed to eliminate the torque steer normally associated with high-powered front-drive vehicles.
