Honda Civic Type R Named Digital Trends Best Car of 2017

In August 1997, the Honda Civic Type R was first introduced to the automotive world.  Available only overseas at its inception, it eluded admirers in the United States for almost 20 years. Fast forward to June 2017, and a fresh new Honda Civic Type R finally hit American shores. Anticipations were high, and the Type R delivered, which is how the Honda Civic Type R earned it’s position as Digital Trends Best Car of 2017. With a powerful 2.0-liter four cylinder engine that generates a heart pumping 306 horsepower @6500 rpm, this Civic is a treat to drive. But don’t worry; all that power won’t make you tipsy. Its intelligently engineered suspension neutralizes any unsavory “torque steer” that causes many front-wheel-drive vehicles to lean during acceleration.

Performance is just one of the reasons Digital Trend named the Honda Civic Type R Best Car of 2017. They also loved its versatility and value.  The lightweight construction and heavy horsepower make the Type R exhilarating to drive, but it’s also practical for your day to day activities. 97.0 cu ft of passenger volume provides comfortable seating for 4.  Infotainment features such as Apply CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ allows you to access and use your favorite apps through an in dash Electrostatic Touch-Screen.  60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seatback and 46.2 cubic feet of cargo space (with the rear seat down) provides plenty of space for groceries, boxes, sporting equipment, or whatever you need to move around town.

Plus, a starting MSRP of just $34,100* puts this supremely sporty vehicle within reach. Interested in experiencing the 2017 Honda Civic Type R? Contact us at Keenan Honda in Doylestown, PA to schedule a test drive or to reserve yours today!
