The Honda sports car received the Digital Trends Best Car of 2017, remember that as of this year Honda Civic Type R is sold officially in our continent.
Civic Type R has an incredible 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo engine, a 6-speed manual transmission with short changes, as well as chassis and a high-rigidity body, making it Honda’s most powerful vehicle.
The Best Car of 2017 award is for its power and handling along with its ease of use for day to day, as well as its affordable price. Digital Trends editors based their choice on the most successful and exciting products of each category they reviewed, where the Honda sports car gets the recognition.
It should be mentioned that Honda’s most powerful production vehicle achieved an incredible time at the Nürburgring: 7 minutes 43.8 seconds, being a reference time for front-wheel drive cars in the majestic Nürburgring Nordschleife.
“For almost two decades, the Honda Civic Type R was the forbidden fruit that the Americans could not
prove. Being a darling of performance magazines and movies, Type R was not sold in the US so expectations were very high as we watched the car that seemed too good to be true, “said Alexander Kalogianni, editor of Digital Trends. “So now that he finally brought it to our shores for 2017, the powerful Civic surprised us for being the ‘accessible tuning’ we always dream of.”
