First-Ever Civic Type R for America Goes On Sale Tomorrow

  • 306-horsepower Civic Type R is most powerful production Honda ever sold in the U.S.
  • World's fastest production front-wheel-drive car at the Nürburgring
  • Civic Type R capstones Honda's epic 10th generation Civic lineup

The all-new 2017 Honda Civic Type R - the ultimate performance variant of America's best-selling car1 and the first-ever Type R-badged Honda sold in the U.S. - goes on sale starting tomorrow in one comprehensively-equipped Touring trim with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)2 of $33,900.

The most powerful production Honda ever sold in America, the track-ready 2017 Civic Type R embodies Honda's racing spirit, making 306 horsepower (SAE net) at 6,500 rpm and 295 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net) from 2,500-4500 rpm from its 2.0-liter DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged i-VTEC® engine. A pre-production version of the new Type R claimed the title of world's fastest production front-wheel-drive (FWD) car on April 7, 2017, setting a record lap time of 7 minutes 43.80 seconds on Germany's legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife (North Loop), more than three seconds faster than the previous FWD best.

The Type R puts the power down through a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission with helical limited slip differential hooked up to 245/30ZR20 Continental SportContact 6 high-performance tires on 20x8.5-inch black-finished aluminum wheels. Speed is scrubbed by 13.8-inch cross-drilled rotors clamped by 4-piston Brembo aluminum calipers in front and 12.0-inch rotors with single-piston calipers in the rear.

The Type R chassis features a dual-axis strut front suspension and multi-link rear, front and rear anti-roll bars, Type-R exclusive springs, bushings and damper mountings and a newly designed Adaptive Damper System with the ability to continuously adjust damping force at all four corners using input from three on-board G sensors, four suspension stroke sensors and a steering angle sensor.

The Adaptive Damper System, along with the dual-pinion variable-ratio electric power steering, drive-by-wire throttle, and brake system, are tied to the Type R's three selectable driving modes, with COMFORT, SPORT and +R settings, allowing the driver to dial up the Type R's reflexes depending on the driving environment. The throttle ECU also features driver-selectable automatic rev matching with two profiles, one for COMFORT and SPORT modes and one for +R mode, to assist drivers in making smooth downshifts without the need for heel & toe downshifting.

Additional performance-enhancing Type-R exclusive features include a weight-saving all-aluminum hood (-11.7 lbs.) and the application of structural adhesives to the body for added structural rigidity, as well as a high-flow exhaust system with three center-mounted exhaust outlets, and a comprehensive aerodynamic package that delivers an exceptional balance of high-speed stability and low drag. 


Look for this SuperBowl Sunday!

2017 HONDA CR-V AND 2017 HONDA CIVIC OFFICIALLY THE BEST-SELLING CARS IN THE US AS HONDA ENTERS 100 MILLION MARK


The 2017 Honda CR-V and 2017 Honda Civic are officially on the list of the best-selling cars in the U.S. this 2016. There's a lot to celebrate as Honda also surpassed the barrier of 100 million units of manufactured cars. This is a valuable achievement that not many manufacturers are capable of.

Honda's Brief History

In 2017 Honda will celebrate 70 years since its founding in 1947. It was established as a manufacturer of motorcycles at first and it was not until 1963 that it produced its first car. This week, the automobile division of the Japanese brand has produced more than 100 million units, according to CarMagazine.

The first models of Honda were the light truck T360 and sporting S500. It was not until 1964 that it established its first production plant exclusively for cars, the Sayama, in the province of Saitama, which premiered with a new model, The S600 roadster.

Today, the current range of Honda includes specific car models for different segments and are distributed accross the globe. Best-selling sedans such as the Accord and Civic are available as well as crossovers such as the CR-V and HR-V.

2017 Honda Civic Shines

With a little more than a week left in 2016, the 2017 Honda Civic was the best selling retail car in North America of any size, according to TorqueNews. It also achieved its best sales record in 44 years, thanks to the reinvented Civic, which is one of our most-read topics here in AutoWorldNews.

The 2017 Honda Civic arrives with a new aesthetic, more interconnectivity on board, improved dynamics and, above all, new security systems. Both the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan and Hatchback also feature a new, sportier design on the front, with new optics and integrated daytime running lights, as well as a new front bumper.

2017 Honda CR-V Tops Competitive Segment

Second only to pickup trucks, the crossover and SUV segment is the hottest and most competitive sales segment in the US. The 2017 Honda CR-V tops this segment, according to TorqueNews.

The 2017 Honda CR-V hits the mark with exceptional utility, decent drive and ride dynamics, with an attractive price point. It launches a series of improvements in perceived quality inside as well, with more space for occupants, a full battery of safety assistants and driving aids.

A new engine turbo for the 2017 Honda CR-V was inherited directly from the Honda Civic. It has a four - cylinder engine naturally aspirated with a capacity of 2.4 liter, and offers 184 hp and 244 Nm of maximum torque.


 
 


 


Honda Accord Takes Early Lead as America's Most Popular Car in 2014 Based on Retail Registrations

Accord leads all passenger cars in retail new-vehicle registrations to individual car buyers for first three months of 2014
Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey are #1 in segment in retail new-vehicle registrations 


TORRANCE, Calif., May 22, 2014 - Accord is leading in the effort to repeat its 2013 performance as the most popular new car with individual American car buyers. Through the first three months of 2014, four of Honda's five top-selling models - Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey - each led their segments in retail registrations for the first quarter of 2014, according to a Honda analysis of new vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive.

These same four Honda models earned top retail registrations status for the full year in 2013, with Accord earning the title of America's most popular car based on retail registrations, and Civic and CR-V achieving both retail and outright best-selling status in their respective segments.

"We're thrilled to be leading the pack in the first lap around the track in 2014," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "In a business environment marked by intense competition and heavy incentives, we want to thank our Honda customers for the trust they continue to place in our products."

Highlights for the Honda brand in the first quarter of 2014 include:


Excluding full-size pickups, the Accord, Civic and CR-V held three of the top five slots - first, third and fourth, respectively - in registrations among individual car buyers in the first quarter of 2014. 


The Accord, with retail registrations totaling 78,355 units through March, maintained a narrow lead of less than 1,000 units over its nearest competitor. Retail registrations accounted for 98.4 percent of all Accord registrations for the period, according to Honda analysis of IHS Automotive registration data. 


Civic retail registrations of 70,677 units led all small cars, beating the closest segment competitor by more than 10,000 units.
CR-V retail registrations rose 3.9 percent to 67,773 units compared to the first quarter last year, giving CR-V a more than 7,000-unit lead over the #2 selling vehicle in the segment. 


Odyssey retail registrations of 27,748 units made it the top choice among retail minivan customers.

How Honda Helps: "Into the Unkown" short film

   As a company devoted to the advancement of human mobility, Honda's innovative research and development efforts during the past decade have yielded such diverse outcomes as humanoid robotics, walking assistance devices, Honda Jet, fuel cell electric vehicle technology, thin film solar cells, increased rice crop yields and functional nano-materials - in addition to the design and development of automobiles, motorcycles, and power equipment products. Based on its belief in the value of technology to address the needs of society, it is Honda's mission to develop products that anticipate and satisfy the evolving needs of its customers while meeting society's demand for cleaner, safer, more efficient and sustainable means of transportation and human mobility

   As part of the "DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE" Documentary Series, Honda will debut its seventh short-film documentary, "Into the Unknown," at http://dreams.honda.com on Sunday, Nov. 7. That evening, a 90-second trailer for the new short-film documentary will air during the premiere of National Geographic Channel's "Great Migrations," an epic miniseries event that takes viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species.
  
The "DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE" Documentary Series is intended to speak to the hearts and minds of consumers by revealing stories of Honda's corporate philosophy at work through an intimate multimedia, interactive website. "Our latest 'DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE' film explores some of Honda's most amazing R&D ventures?brain-machine interface, robotics, advanced safety technology?but at the heart of the film is the idea that society has made its greatest advances thanks to the efforts of a few pioneering explorers, inventors and thinkers who were brave enough to make the leap into the unknown," said writer and producer Todd Carey of RPA.

   "Honda's 'Power of Dreams' marketing spotlights human stories of perseverance, including our long-standing engineering commitment to develop cleaner forms of mobility," said Barbara Ponce, manager of corporate advertising for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Our corporate film series naturally aligns with the compelling 'Great Migrations'' themes of resolve and ingenuity. The inspiring content and cutting-edge caliber of 'Great Migrations' parallels the uplifting stories and cinematic quality of our 'DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE' Documentary Series."


   
The all-new 2013 Honda Odyssey is the ultimate minivan reinvented, re-energized and evolved. With its modern styling, spacious interior, and high-tech features, the new Odyssey almost demands a new category. Although it carries up to 8 passengers, there's nothing "minivan" about the Odyssey's efficient-yet-sporty performance, available 10-way power adjustable leather-trimmed front seating, authoritative acceleration and all the thoughtful engineering you'd expect from a Honda.

Of course, the new Odyssey pushes the tech envelope further with available features like a 16.2-inch dual-view-capable ultra-wide DVD Rear Entertainment System with HDMI input, and a premium audio system with 12 speakers. Everything is gracefully held together by a lattice of user-friendliness and simplicity-just load it with family and friends, gear up, and go.
