Power

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R continues to draw amazing power from a race-bred 2.0-Liter Turbocharged 4-Cylinder Engine with Direct Injection, and VTEC Valvetrain, putting out an incredible 306-Horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of Torque, while delivering power to the front wheels through a 6-Speed Manual Transmission – with Limited-Slip Differential!  Drivers will also have the option of choosing from 3 driving modes – Comfort, Sport and +R!  Plus, also new for 2020, is Active Sound Control, which Honda described in a press release as a system that “modifies interior sound in concert with chosen drive mode.”
