Honda Performance Lineup

October 19th, 2017 by

Honda Civic Type R

The Honda performance lineup relies on performance-oriented technologies like turbochargers and multi-link suspension assemblies to produce upwards of 300 hp and enable precision handling. And thanks to features like a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, the driver is in complete control. Explore the capabilities of the Civic Type R, Civic Si, and the Civic Hatchback, then tour the lineup at VIP Honda in North Plainfield, NJ.

2017 Honda Civic Type R

The Civic Type R is the rocket in the Honda performance lineup. Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that puts out 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. That is paired with a 6-speed manual that integrates with the Engine Control Unit to enable rev-matching, a way to make high-performance driving more accessible. Other upgrades like a helical limited-slip differential and the use of lightweight aluminum materials throughout make this model thrilling to drive around Union.

2018 Honda Civic Si

The Civic Si sedan builds on the classic Honda Civic by adding sporty upgrades. It is powered by a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder mated with a 6-speed manual. Power is rated at 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque, and you can make full use of that output thanks to features like a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers. You’ll also get bigger brakes and a unique spoiler. The interior feels sportier too thanks to Si-branded seats and an expanded instrument cluster.

2018 Honda Civic Hatchback

The Civic Hatchback is a great model for hot-hatch lovers. It runs on a different version of the 1.5L four-cylinder engine that puts out up to 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. The 6-speed manual is standard, but a continuously variable transmission is also available for drivers who like the ease of an automatic when running errands in Edison. Available enhancements like more aerodynamic body work and center-outlet dual exhaust set this hatchback apart from other models on the road.
