0:00
all right look the brand new Civic Type
0:02
R is finally here back in 2017 the Civic
0:05
Type R Came Out Swinging tons of power
0:08
going straight to the front wheels great
0:11
handling red seats you name it it
0:14
checked all the type R boxes it handled
0:16
great and was a ton of fun to drive side
0:19
note my voice is just a hair raspy
0:21
because I just got married two days ago
0:24
so bear with me in this intro but don’t
0:27
worry the rest of the video I sound just
0:28
fine but the only problem with the brand
0:31
new Type R isn’t really the car itself
0:33
in my opinion is is it different enough
0:36
to conquer the big fat two-letter
0:39
elephant in the room and that is what
0:42
we’re gonna talk about today so is the
0:43
new Civic Type R enough of an update to
0:46
rock your socks off let’s go for a drive
0:48
and find out
0:53
foreign
0:56
good morning ladies and gentlemen
1:00
and welcome to the brand new Civic Type
1:03
R the type R brand has been around 30
1:06
years now which is pretty hard to
1:07
believe so getting straight into it what
1:10
is different about this one to the
1:13
previous generation because the previous
1:14
generation was
1:16
pretty good it’s really good actually
1:18
have a lot to see time in it I really
1:20
enjoyed it and even when you did
1:22
bolt-ons on it it was really great
1:28
okay that’s really rad there’s like an
1:31
F1 style shift light up at the top with
1:34
physical lights like it’s not like a
1:36
thing in the digital dash so that’s
1:38
really neat and it’s perfect in your
1:40
peripheral vision seeing it come up and
1:42
back especially when you have wheel spin
1:44
in a front wheel drive car that’s this
1:46
fast so this has 315 horsepower at 6 500
1:51
RPM it’s a 2-liter turbocharged
1:54
four-cylinder that is very similar to
1:56
the last engine in the last car but just
1:58
kind of upgraded in a few ways it has
2:00
improved engine cooling it has a new
2:03
turbocharger it is nine eight to one
2:05
compression ratio the engine cooling has
2:08
been improved one thing I’m like kind of
2:10
struggling to get my head around is
2:12
they’re advertising this as the most
2:14
powerful Honda ever sold in the United
2:16
States which is true
2:19
but
2:20
car guys know that Acura and Honda are
2:23
kind of the same thing so I’m like but
2:25
what about the NSX oh right it’s
2:27
inaccurate here but it’s a Honda
2:29
everywhere else in the world so that’s
2:31
just kind of a funny thing to think
2:33
about
2:35
I used to drag your back in high school
2:36
are you gasoline in Gears
2:39
yep are you gears in petrol
2:43
wow from the outside it doesn’t sound
2:45
amazing not gonna lie
2:49
you mean your foot
2:52
what do you think of the car from the
2:54
outside been like appearance wise I love
2:56
it yeah I love it it’s fat
3:01
[Music]
3:03
one thing you’ll notice is that the
3:06
headlight sits almost behind the grill
3:08
it’s really interesting so you have this
3:10
Grill kind of stick out here and this
3:12
kind of scoop into the front bumper we
3:14
do have mostly functional vents on the
3:16
car but there are some that are
3:18
unfunctional also the side skirt
3:20
actually directs air past air which is
3:22
pretty neat and one of the biggest
3:24
debates about the type R the last
3:26
generation was the engine cooling some
3:28
people seem to have engine cooling on
3:30
track and some people did it it was kind
3:32
of a divisive subject that nobody seemed
3:35
to get a clear answer on in my opinion
3:37
no matter what race track I went to it
3:39
was like oh yeah my mine overheats or
3:41
mine doesn’t overheat or it’s dry for
3:43
error it was kind of a hard thing to
3:45
figure out if it was a real thing or not
3:47
this one right off the bat sounds
3:50
different and the first one one of my
3:53
biggest complaints was that
3:55
didn’t sound like a Honda
4:08
like it just didn’t really have that
4:10
crazy V-Tech sound right is it as loud
4:13
and aggressive as that nationally
4:15
aspirated one no but it still has a
4:18
little bit more personality with this
4:19
new exhaust system we still have the
4:21
triple trumpet looking exhaust on the
4:23
back and of course the middle one is
4:26
bigger than the sides the biggest
4:27
competitor to this car arguably is the
4:29
Corolla gr which also has three exhausts
4:32
on it or three exhaust tips on it still
4:34
has a six-speed transmission and a
4:36
lighter flywheel I could not imagine the
4:39
Pacific Type R in the other way like
4:42
this car without the manual transmission
4:44
would be just bizarre it just wouldn’t
4:46
feel right and to get that horsepower
4:48
the turbocharger throws out 25 pounds of
4:51
Boost from the factory so let’s talk
4:54
about the elephant in the room and that
4:56
is the brand new Lux to the Type R
5:00
man a lot of people can’t really make up
5:02
their mind on this one because the last
5:03
one was very boy racer had a lot of
5:06
crazy aerodynamics on it and was just
5:09
like a spaceship like it was it was a
5:11
wild looking car and some people said it
5:13
was over stylized so then they dialed
5:16
the style back and then the internet
5:18
goes crazy and says oh now it’s not
5:20
styled enough and I think the biggest
5:22
thing with that is the wing the wing
5:25
seems to be the big thing a lot of
5:27
people look at and go that just doesn’t
5:29
seem right or quote unquote it seemed
5:32
like an afterthought and you can kind of
5:34
see that because the one in the previous
5:36
generation was color matched and you
5:39
know it felt more attached to the car
5:41
this is a two post Wing like a
5:44
functional two-post Wing that you would
5:46
buy to put on your race car it has much
5:49
more of an aftermarket looking feeling
5:51
to it and you can argue that that’s good
5:54
or bad it’s up to you when you face the
5:56
card directly from the rear it doesn’t
5:58
look too out of place but if you see
6:00
that that side profile you kind of see
6:02
what people are saying about it like why
6:05
their opinion is that way think about
6:06
the type bar that made it so great in
6:09
the last generation was how good it was
6:11
at
6:12
Canyon carving
6:16
you get that Honda limiter man
6:20
and the limited slip does a really good
6:23
job of keeping you
6:24
[Music]
6:36
um
6:39
foreign
6:44
[Music]
6:48
I love that the arrow in this car is
6:50
functional it doesn’t just look like
6:52
it’s there the rev matching system has
6:55
been improved even more and it was
6:58
really good in the last car good thing
7:00
is you can turn it on on and off if you
7:02
want
7:06
ah the brakes dude I did have one
7:10
instance earlier where I hit a patch of
7:12
uh some gravel or something and it
7:14
understood really really bad but it’s
7:16
because I had a patch of gravel so that
7:18
was kind of scary the extra torque is
7:20
extremely helpful as well so let’s talk
7:22
about the interior the interior of this
7:24
car is very similar to the last one but
7:27
also of course similar to the 11th gen
7:30
Civic SI the steering wheel is a
7:33
fantastic steering wheel feels really
7:35
good in your hands you have a 10.2 inch
7:38
infotainment screen a full Digital dash
7:41
and what’s cool is in each mode it
7:43
changes everything that’s going on on
7:44
the dash now like I said before I love
7:47
that the shift light is actually
7:48
physical and not built in to the digital
7:51
dash I think it’s a really nice touch
7:52
you want to hear the least intimidating
7:54
horn in the world
7:56
another thing about the type R is that
7:59
they actually have a good selection of
8:00
colors to really bring out the body
8:02
lines of this thing this car in white
8:04
looks fantastic it looks the part with
8:06
the red carpet the Red Sea it’s all that
8:09
speaking of the Interior the seats are
8:11
very similar to the last one but they’re
8:15
not exactly the same they’re a little
8:17
bit more of a bucket they’re a little
8:18
more slanted on the bottom turning
8:20
radius is not good it’s 265 Square all
8:23
the way around at the same time the car
8:26
for some reason I feel as though it
8:28
needs to be just this much lower just
8:30
has a little bit much of a wheel gap for
8:33
my taste but that’s one you know
8:35
coilover away or whatever this car is 42
8:39
000 like 800 something bucks basically
8:41
forty three thousand dollars and if you
8:43
look at it there’s a big fat Corolla
8:46
elephant in the room and the gr Corolla
8:49
in this although they’re probably the
8:51
closest competitors with one another
8:53
they drive very very differently the gr
8:56
with its multiple differential setups
8:59
with all-wheel drive feels very
9:00
different than this car it does have
9:02
lower power but at least on the street I
9:07
feel a little bit more confident in that
9:09
car today’s road conditions are great
9:11
there’s a lot of gravel and stuff on the
9:13
road so take all this what I’m saying
9:14
with a grain of salt this car feels very
9:17
similar to the last car and that there’s
9:19
nothing wrong with that it’s just faster
9:21
it’s a little bit bigger a little bit
9:23
wider in the front as well the track
9:25
width is a little bit more but also just
9:27
like the last car you have plenty of
9:29
seating in the back seat is a big giant
9:32
hatch in the back with a ton of storage
9:34
space this car just makes you want to
9:36
downshift all the time it just stay in
9:38
the high RPM all the time in the true
9:41
Honda fashion at the end of the day the
9:44
brand new Civic Type R is an update of
9:46
the old Civic Type R I don’t mean that
9:49
in a mean way the last one was a really
9:51
great car and this is a really great car
9:54
it’s fast enough for most people it’s
9:57
really good around corners it feels good
9:59
it’s comfortable overall it’s a Civic
10:02
type bar it’s exactly what the name
10:03
