The 2020 Honda Civic Type R Is Going To Get Fed-In Engine Noise

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R Is Going To Get Fed-In Engine Noise

If you asked any automotive enthusiast their favorite part about a vehicle, their answer wouldn’t be something trivial like a “manual transmission.” It’d definitely be fed-in engine noise, which also happens to be a new feature on the 2020 Honda Civic Type R. Just kidding about that first part. But the latter is unfortunately true.

Honda debuted the 2020 version of the Civic’s top performance...

This 1997 Acura Integra Type R Just Sold For A Whopping $82,000

This 1997 Acura Integra Type R Just Sold For A Whopping $82,000

We at Jalopnik love marveling at how mint-condition examples of relatively inexpensive cars from the 1990s and early 2000s are now selling for absurd figures as young professionals try to buy up their childhood dream machines. This time, let’s look at a 1997 Acura Integra Type R—a car that sold for ~$24,000 when new—that is in such immaculate shape that someone just picked it up for...

The Honda Civic Type R's Price Has Gone Up Almost $2,500 In Two Years

Honda just announced pricing for the 2019 Honda Civic Type R , and the number is quite a bit bigger than the 306 horsepower, front-drive hot hatch launched back in 2017.

The new price is $37,230, which accounts for a $36,300 suggested retail price plus a $930 destination charge. By comparison, the 2017 model started at a suggested retail price of $33,900 plus an $875 destination charge,...

The 'Honda Civic Type OveRland' Is a Mean-Looking Lifted Honda Civic Type R

The “safari” trend in the car world has gone off the rails in recent years, with folks nearly getting themselves killed just to give their vehicle that certain look. But, while I’ve backed off on my “Safari All the Cars ” take, I will say that I’m a fan of this lifted Honda Civic Type R.

It’s called the Honda Civic Type OveRland, and it was unveiled today at the Society of Motor Manufacturers...

A Honda Civic Type R Joins Australian Police Force, but Not to Chase Your Hooning Self Down

A Honda Civic Type R Joins Australian Police Force, but Not to Chase Your Hooning Self Down

The Honda Civic Type R is the newest vehicle on the New South Wales Police Force in Australia, but don’t think a cop will come after you in it for breaking the hooning laws or trying to street race it at a stoplight. This 306-horsepower hot hatch, law-enforcing livery or not, will be for show.

That’s a shame, too, because the Type R looks good in a police livery. Perhaps that’s because the...

Honda Engineers Built A Honda Civic Type R Pickup Truck And Now I Need One

Honda Engineers Built A Honda Civic Type R Pickup Truck And Now I Need One

Strangely, Honda just debuted the Honda Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept, a clearly one-off, hacked-away version of its Big Wing-Having, 316 horsepower, front-wheel drive rocket. Now it has a practical bed for storing boxes of overnighted parts from Japan. The vehicle is pretty pointless, and by “pretty pointless,” I mean “awesome.”

Debuted at a Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders...

Questionable aesthetics aside, theHonda Civic Type R is a fantastic driving machine that earned its famed red badges. The 2018.5 model gets a $600 price bump while remaining exactly the same. It could even potentially be a good thing for buyers if it brings those crazy markups down.

Dear Tuners: This Is What Your Honda Civic Type R Should Look Like

The current road-going Honda Civic Type R looks like teenage anger bottled up into a car body, leaving people split on how they feel about its looks. But it didn’t take a new generation for the Type R to put on some adult clothes. It just took making it into a race car.

This Type R will compete in the British Touring Car Championship this season, and, according to a press release from the...

This Madman Is Stuffing A New Honda Civic Type R Motor Into A 1992 Civic Hatch

Miguel Carrera is a Santander, Spain-based 23 year-old automotive technician who’s in the process of stuffing a 306 horsepower Civic Type R engine into a 2,100 pound fifth-generation Honda Civic. It’s all part of an epic project aimed at achieving a power-to-weight figure on par with that of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. It’s all a bit insane.

Here's Exactly What Makes The 2018 Honda Accord And Civic Type R Engines Different

The 2018 Honda Accord ditches the V6 in favor of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as its most powerful engine option. It’s been heralded at many outlets—including admittedly this one —as being an Accord with the Civic Type R’s engine. While it is based on that motor, the newly released parts catalog reveals many significant differences that go beyond early reports of a smaller...

Honda Claims No Specific Problems In 2017 Civic Type R Despite Gear-Grinding Complaints

Honda Claims No Specific Problems In 2017 Civic Type R Despite Gear-Grinding Complaints

Yesterday, a YouTuber who goes by the name FlyinGato sent us a video that documents what appeared to be a pretty gnarly grind between first and second gear on his new 2017 Honda Civic Type R. FlynGato also showed what looked like gear grinding in the cars of two other YouTubers. Suffice to say, it didn’t sound good.

FlyinGato wasn’t the only one to report grinding in that model; at...

Honda Wants Many More Versions Of The NSX

We’ve heard rumors about an NSX Type-R in the pipeline but apparently Honda/Acura is pondering even more variants of their halo car platform. Racers, convertibles(?!) really everything a kid could want.

In a conversation with Autocar, Honda’s chief engineer for the NSX Ted Klaus talked about “lightweight, non-hybrid and all-electric versions” one of which would be the Type-R. The word...

See How The 2017 Honda Civic Type R Compares To The Acura Integra Type R

Fans are talking about the 2017 Honda Civic Type R like it’s the second coming of Jesus, or at the very least, Honda itself. This is partially because so many test pilots have heaped praise on it, but also because it’s only the second Honda to earn a “Type R” badge that’s made it to America. We went back to the first, the Integra Type R, to see how far the R has come..

Honda Made A Type R Lawnmower 

You thought there was hope in the world. You thought, no matter how dim and ominous things looked, you could remember 2017 as the year the pure, six-speed manual of a Honda Civic Type R came to the U.S.—to be controlled only by a human who loves three pedals. But, alas, the Type R has gone autonomous.

Good thing it’s only a lawn mower, right? Autonomous mowers don’t sound too bad, really....

The most hotly anticipated Japanese hot-hatch, the new Honda Civic Type R , is the car that we all hope will be the answer to our enthusiast prayers. A huge wing. Awesome, puffed up Japanese looks. Coming to America! And now we’re hearing that it will also get a CVT option. Wait, what? What? (Update: It seems we jumped the gun and Honda has confirmed no CVT will be in this Type R.)

Driving Five Old Honda Type Rs Will Make You Yearn For The New One

It’s easy for us Americans to forget that the 2017 Honda Type R traces its roots all the way back to the early 1990s. In nearly all iterations, the basic ingredients were the same: great lightweight chassis, excellent shifter straight from the car heavens, bright red heavily bolstered seats, and a hilariously peaky engine. This review of five old Type Rs will make you thirst for some Type R...
